Delicious and filling!

Their little neck clams with penne in white sauce is to die for! Portions of clams were generous and the dish was cooked just the way it was ordered … al dente. The bread was so fresh and hot that it burned our fingers and it was so good that I could have eaten just bread, butter and a beer.... read more

Great food! A regular stop after a day of Kitesurfing at Fort Desoto or a boat ride around the bay. Prices seem fair for what you get and food always hits the spot! Definitely check it out if you're in the area!

My wife and I have eaten there 3 X and it seems like each time is better than the last. I had Mussel W/ garlic sauce. My wife had the Pasta Puttanesca which she really enjoy. The portions a very large which taste fantastic next day for lunch, the servers are attentive but not bothersome

We were at Fort Desoto on a quiet lazy day and asked 3 different workers of varying ages where to eat close by. They all recommended Tony & Nello's. It's not overly fancy, but it was very nice. We ate there for lunch and had a great waiter. The food was very tasty and the price was quite affordable. I... More

We never fail to visit this outstanding Italian restaurant with authentic pizza and superb dishes. Be sure to check your bill, twice we were overcharged by the same waitress at different times!

I visited on June 7th, 2015 with my mom and her boyfriend. We ordered Burchetta and a Greek salad. It was my first time there and it was a fantastic experience. Very clean, excellent service, and phenomenal food. Definitely would go back and definitely recommend if you like home style Italian cooking.

Vacationed in area May 2015 and ate at this restaurant twice in one week. Once for dinner and then lunch after visiting Ft. Desoto. Dinner was amazing-I had the Shrimp Scampi and my husband has Lasagna. Despite the restaurant being extremely busy on Saturday evening we had exceptional service from our server, David. We noticed all the wait staff worked... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Greeted immediately and ordered ice cold Coronas, served in frosted glasses … perfect for a warm Florida afternoon. My grilled salmon salad was delicious; lettuce, cucumbers, were crispy and fresh. The large platter was trimmed with sliced tomatoes. Bread was hot and fresh from the brick oven. Friend ordered clams with garlic and olive... More
