Almost a loaf of bread topped ith fresh tomatoes and herbs. We share an order of ziti. The portions were substantial. Between the app, salad and dinner , my husband and I were stuffed and had leftovers.... More

Very close to the Fort DeSotos camp ground where we were staying. We just had a pizza and salad. Pizza was good and salad was great. Both very fresh and price was reasonable. It was a Saturday evening and the place got very busy. It was so loud in there. Next time I will try takeout!

We spent a week in the area and tried this one night. The outside doesn't look like much but the food inside is simply amazing. Ordered garlic rolls not knowing the portion sizes. If I was to find one issue is that the garlic rolls were a bit over baked but still amazing. We had orders of veil marsala with... More

By far THE BEST Italian restaurant in Tampa Bay. I am from Italy and this is the closest thing to Italy food you can get! The only place I'll eat Italian food beside my moms house! :) Portions are huge, food is authentic, fresh and always tasty, fantastic new specials every week, and friendly staff! Do yourself a favor and... More

Tony and Nello's is a Tierra Verde Landmark. From the grilled shrimp appetizer to the gargantuan tomato bruschetta - you can't go wrong. The antipasto salad is enough for 3 or 4 and the pizzas are to die for! Their expansive menu covers all the best of Italy with daily specials that are hard to resist. Parmigiano, Marsala, Picatta, Diablo... More

Went on a eek night so there was no line to get in. Kids enjoyed splitting a pizza. The menu offers a good variety... More
