A couple of friends took us there yesterday for lunch. My wife and I ordered a salad with salmon except it came out without the fish. We began eating as the waitress told us it would only be a few minutes but it took over 30 minutes for the salmon to arrive. We tried to cancel it numerous times to... More

Came in after a walk on the beach. Ordered pesactore pizza (mussels, scallops, calamari and shrimp) and Tony's Jojo special(peppers, onion, peppers and sausage). Both were delicious but the seafood pizza was outstanding. Lots of flavor and abundance of seafood. Very reasonable and great service. Will be back.

We found this restaurant while looking for a place to eat when leaving Fort de Soto. We called and made a reservation. They were waiting for us when we got there. The restaurant is very good. Good food, good value, and good service. I highly recommend.

Went with a group of six friends for a good Italian meal and was I surprised at the quality and quantity of their dishes. The bruschetta was outstanding probably the best we ever had. The fried calamari was very good and the eggplant appetizer was superb. This is definitely one of the BEST Italian restaurants in the St. Pete area.... More

We've been going to Tony & Nello's for a few years. The pizza is huge with a nice thin crust. We order take out once a week. The subs are fantastic also. For dinner, portions are large & I usually end up with enough take home foe 2 meals. Service is excellent. The menu is unbelievably huge. I recommend a... More

This wasn't our first trip to this restaurant but it will be our last. There were 6 of us and all ordered something different. I opted for a Pacific Sea Bass where you can order it cooked a variety of ways. I opted for grilled with a lemon and caper sauce. The minute the fish arrived at the table the... More

True Italian cuisine. Great pizza Stromboli calzones and salad. Portions are very large and can generally be split between two or three people. Our favorite was the bruschetta. No alcohol just beer and wine. Wait staff could be a little friendlier but they weren't bad.

One of the finest tasting Italian food-places for us and our friends. By the way, our friends (2 families) are Italians who have their own catering businesses, so they know the real deal when they encounter it. Tony & Nello’s pasta with meatballs and rosa sauce were wonderful. The sauce was rich and flavorful, and the meatballs…ah, the meatballs: light,... More

We visit this restaurant every spring when we go on spring bread. Every time we get great food. Great service, huge portions. Great sea food and/or pasta. Always clean. At dinner time make reservations. Its only 10 minutes from St Pete Beach area and worth the trip.
