It's impossible to describe how good the food is at Briandi's. And the portions are generous. Last night I tried their Caesar Salad with their signature lasagne. Amazing!!! I admit I have tried other dishes at Briandi's, but the lasagne is the very best I have ever had. Beyond compare. Also tried one of their homemade sausages. It was very... More

Not much seating space but the food is always good as well as the service. Have moved from Nokomis but go back periodically and am always happy to see Briandi's (a family business) is still there! I give it 5 stars. AND they have spumoni! I ate there several times over the years and will again.

While very limited in table space (better plan on a waiting a bit to be seated for dinner), Briandi's has consistently served up over eight years what we think is the best Southern Italian food in town. I'd urge you not to miss it, but I might not be able to get in for my own food "fix." ;-)

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!
