Food is just ok, but portions are huge! Gluten-free pasta available. Service was friendly. Reasonable option if you're spending the day at Fort Desoto.

Excellent food with large portions from a very large menu. The bruschetta could be a meal in itself. Julia the waitress was very knowledgeable about the entire menu. Absolutely no disappointment with this restaurant!

Everything was fantastic. We had the bruschetta which was finger licking good and the ultimate with seafood was excellent. People here are very attentive and the service was perfect

Seriously big portions of good Italian home cooked food. If you miss Mommas cooking this is the place for you - great veal scallops and huge pizzas. Friendly staff and buzzing at weekends. Just be prepared for a take away box.

This is not a fancy place, and the sign is hard to read, so it's easy to miss it. My favorite: their bruschetta! It's enormous and delicious. You really need to share it with a few people, if you're also planning to order an entree. The meatballs are fabulous, the size of baseballs, and the dinner portions are very generous.... More

This place looks like a really nice local Italian restaurant. They have a full menu with some great sounding entrees. We ordered pizzas and a Greek salad as carry out but unfortunately, we were not impressed. Our pizza was quite greasy and the crust was soggy. The Greek salad was tasty but it was very watery. I would have to... More

I have been going to Tony and Nellos for years and have always have been impressed by this establishment. I had a special night planned to have a romantic dinner at home with take out. When I got the food home, it was not the superb standard that I have grown accustom to. It was terrible. In fact, the veal... More

Have lived in this area for over 5 years. It's taken too long to find this place. The service is always friendly. The food is consistently very good. Last night we shared the wood fired duck. The entrée was excellent. Tender duck, great stuffing, tasty potatoes and crisp vegetables. All of is at a very fair price. Wish my waistline... More

Our meals have been excellent the few times we have been to the Terra Verde area. We have eaten there or just for a take out. My favorite is the Calamari Marinara although the Pizza are really good too.
