Whether you dine in or call for take out, this is an excellent Italian restaurant. Portions are quite large. Bread is fresh. Nice selection of beverages from the bar.

Servings are generous and well prepared. Wide selection of traditional italian dishes. Chicken Parm and pastas stand out. Hot fresh bread and oil served complimentary. Prices are very affordable and wait staff very hard working. Honest good food.

Most people drive by this little restaurant and don't even notice it! Yes, it's small and they don't take reservations so you will likely have to wait, but it's worth it! We were lucky enough to get a table without waiting a few days after Christmas and it was fabulous as always. My husband had the Stinger Sandwich with fries... More

Briandi's is very small, so get there early, go on a weekday or be ready to wait in "season." The sausage, pepper and onions, and meatball sandwiches are huge. All servings are big. Great homemade bread. We haven't had one, but the pizzas look wonderful. Friendly service - with a family style atmosphere. We make it a point to go... More

Great Greek salad that is not on menu. Generous pours of beer and wine. After going a couple of times the servers and owner make you feel welcomed and remembered. Chicken wings are good as is the white pizza, pasta with meatballs and yummy bread!!!

They call it 13 layer lasagna but it was simply layers of noodles and some ricotta cheese. No meat, no sausage, no mozzarella.... just a stack of boring noodles with no flavor or stuff inside. This includes the red sauce, absolutely no flavor! My wife got chicken florentine and it wasn't even close to what chicken florentine should be. They... More

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.
