Go there if you are hungry for pasta and Italian cooking. You may not have room for dessert. A place for family and friends to break bread.

Good food and friendly family service. All food made from scratch and served with a smile. Good prices and you are sure to go home with a doggy bag.

What a great restaurant. OK all you St Pete Beach folks, spend the $.75 to come over the Pinellas Bay way toll road to Tierra Verde and find this place. They have a very extensive menu. As appetizers we split the bruschetta and an order of stuffed mushrooms. We could have stopped there. The bruschetta was the BEST any of... More

Restaurant is not real big, but nice This restaurant was recommended to us. We are in Madeira Beach so it was a little drive, but a beautiful area. We ordered aglio e olio (not sure of spelling) with chicken and spinach. It was one of the best we have had. They had this dish on menu with shrimp, but we... More

If you check back on my reviews, I raved about Tony & Nello's in March of 2016. However, after this last experience there & after reading other reviews, I am convinced that it may be hit & miss every few months there. Out of our party of eight, only 2 meals were acceptable. Two meals ordered were the pasta aglio... More

It's a typical Italian restaurant with a homey atmosphere, paper tablecloths, noise and family ambiance. We are Italian-born and perhaps a bit too fussy about our food.It was highly recommended by several folks and we were a bit skeptical when they ALL told us about the huge portions of food they serve. And our skepticism was justified. We started out... More

Nice little restaurant with wine and beer only. The portions are HUGE! Unless you have a very hearty appetite, pick a dish and share. Appetizer selection is very good and they have fantastic specials. Service was very good and the bread is wonderful also. Nice find in the Tierra Verde area. We did not get the pizza but it looked...
