One of our favorite haunts!

We have found this to be one of the best values in the St. Petersburg area. The wine list is extensive and they have the coldest draft Stella around! The appetizers, bread, pizza and pasta are all delicious. We try to order something new most of the time, but the Pasta Rustica is definitely a... read more

Casual yet elegant. this is a great "find" on Tierra Verde off the Bayway in south St. Pete. The extensive menu is executed with perfection, with generous portions every time. An extensive wine list, complemented with beer and non-alcohol beverages, fresh bread and perfect seasonings have led me back again and again. The only weakness that I have observed is... More

We have eaten at Tony and Nellos many times and have enjoyed our dinners. Last week we had a late lunch so we just wanted one dinner and a pizza. My wife order Chicken Francese and it was terrible. No flavor...just bland. The waiter asked what was wrong with the dinner and then just walked away with a non caring... More

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.... 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!
