Description: Chef is from Naples, Italy and displays an imaginative and creative artistry that clearly makes Tiano's the best Italian restaurant I've ever eaten in. I lived in Chicago and Philadelphia and have spent time in Rome, Italy; therefore, this statement should not be taken lightly. His food is wonderful, fresh, and always pleasing.

Dine in a lovely setting overlooking the New Smyrna Golf Course. Great food and wines for lunch and dinner. There are daily lunch specials and on Friday and Saturday evenings there is music to enjoy while having your meal..
Fresh bread baked daily, homemade soups, plus pasta sauce made fresh daily.
Full bar for your favorite drinks.
Friendly servers to facilitate you and your guests.
This is a real Italian family restaurant! Enjoy!!

“Quite good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

I want so badly to give this eatery a "4" but can't. The food is delicious (especially the sauce). The service is great. But the ambiance lacks considerably. Cafeteria-like tables and chairs. Harsh lighting. A guitar player who couldn't smile if his life depended on it.

I had the Rigatoni Bolognese - perfectly cooked and, again, the sauce was amazing. My dining partner had Chicken Parmesan - tender chicken and a lot of it.

We returned later in the month to sit in the bar area where it seems more cozy. And it is. We enjoyed a pitcher of cold beer and some delightful bruschetta.

If you're never been and you live in the area, go. It's definitely worth it for the food!

“New TIANO'S in DeLand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

We have never been to the large Tiano's in New Smyrna Beach BUT the family members have opened a new small Italian Eatery in the Northgate Plaza in DeLand on Rt. 92 (International Speedway Blvd). They have lunch specials and they even have free delivery. IT IS FABULOUS. I am Italian, and also a great cook - so when I say this is super food - it truly is. The restaurant is small - but the ambiance is very nice. The staff are very nice and the recipes are old-world, delicious sauce, meatballs-delicious. Treat yourself!

“I Thought Shrimp Scampi Was Made With Garlic...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Visited on February 29th with friends, but will only comment on my dish and my impression of the dining room and service. Dining room had the look and feel of cafteria seating.Tables and chairs are in good shape, but none of the room had any character. Service was adequate, but off-sync. Water came after drink order, bread appeared just after salad, salad plate didn't leave until well after entrees appeared, other empty drink, bread dishes never left. However!!!; my biggest disappointment was my entree. I ordered shrimp scampi with pasta. Pasta was very nicely cooked. Sauce? What sauce? Every scampi dish I've ever had included butter and garlic sauce. This one had olive oil, maybe! I found little salt or pepper and I'm still waiting for the scrumptious garlic and butter. Most disturbing, the shrimp had the musty flavor of not fresh or farm-raised!! What gives??!! This is a seaside town with many, many shrimpers and this restaurant can't afford fresh shrimp??!! (I grew up here, next door to a shrimper!) If the shrimp weren't farm-raised someone really missed the boat! My friends can go back; I won't. And, I cannot recommend it -- check out Bella Valentino (excellent!), North US 1, NSB, or even Luna Bella (good, not great), Venetian Bay, NSB; both are better.
