If you're in the mood for an old fashioned Italian meal in a cozy setting try Briandi's. Located on the corner of Albee Rd and 41 in Nokomis Briandi's is an old style Italian restaurant featuring excellent food at a moderate price. Try the lasagne in particular. The staff is friendly and the owner is almost always there and willing... More

We visited this charming little hole in the wall right on Tamiami Trail with friends and family and we all loved it! We all brought home enough food for two more meals each. The waitress told us she worked there 2 months before she ever served a dessert, and I believe it. The aromas when I waked in told me... More

We loved our pizza however not the $13.95 up charge for toppings! Each topping adds $2 to your price! Our medium pizza was $28! Not worth it!

Ordered a pizza for take out one evening while we were staying at the beach on Casey Key and were very disappointed. The pizza looked like it should taste good but it did not. It was a little deformed and the toppings had slid around quite a bit. Could have overlooked this if it had tasted good. The crust was... More

We returned once again, and still the fantastic food and service. The portions were great and the value and taste as normal. This is our favourite and soon the place was full, and this was out of season, so the place must being doing things right. Keep up the excellent service and outstanding food.

Thank Papapilo
