“HARD TO DESCRIBE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Cute small, real small, established many years locals frequented restaurant. Menu offerings are varied--lots of Italian --cost moderate--ambiance sort of negative, well, I'd say negative is the ambiance. You either like it enough to go back, or not--in my case-not

“"Awesome Tasting Superb Authentic Italian Food at a Great Price"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My Wife and I was in Town celebrating our Wedding Anniversary back in April & we was told about Briandi's by the front desk folks at our Hotel at Bentley's. We arrived there late- very close to closing; but they accepted us with open arms. They even stayed open till we left. The service was Excellent and the Food- WOW!!!!! Delicious. Their Pizza is the Best in Florida. The Chicken Parmesan was Outstanding and the Bread was Fantastic. The Ambiance was Intimate and Cosy. We had a Truly Wonderful Time & We'll definitely be back!!!

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We thought we would order a caesar salad to share. Too salty; too much lemon juice. Then we ordered a pizza. Sauce wasn't good, cheese wasn't good, crust wasn't good, but the mushrooms were good. Ate 1/3 of the pizza. Debated about whether we should have the restaurant put it in the garbage or put it in the disposal when we got home. We decided the later, but fortunately we found the dumpster on our way out. Then if you want to take forever to get a pizza, this place is for you.

“Wow! Best Pizza in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

We're picky about pizza and this gets thumbs up from us. Good thin crust, flavorful tomato sauce, a lot of cheese. Best we've had in a while. Tried several around town, they were good or ok. Briandi's has this right. Had their eggplant parm, it was ok. Other dishes ok too. Pizza= great!

“Delicious Italian food for a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

My family and I have eaten here twice recently. We found a very enjoyable dining experience - great service and wonderful food at a fair price. Our favorite dishes were the eggplant parmigiana and the lasagna. We plan to return when we are back in the area! This is not a large restaurant so peak periods may result in a wait!
