Tony & Nello's rewrote the book on neighborhood southern Italian Restaurants. You won't find the typical gaudy artwork and maps if Italy. The ambience... simple and tasteful. The restaurant is quite large, usually full, but you never feel packed in.

Service is friendly and prompt ...just right for this type of restaurant. The wait staff is very familiar with the menu and will gladly help you through the massive 200+\- offerings.

I can't do the menu justice here, it's just too large... antipastos (25 of them), salads, fish, lobster, shrimp, chicken, veal - veal- veal, and oh yes my favorite brick oven pizza ...they also offer pizza baked in conventional pizza ovens. I guess you get my point, the menu is endless. Oh and then there are the specials...

I'm a bit of a pizza connoisseur and the brick oven pizza is unquestionably the area's best. Give one a try with a side Italian salad (big enough to serve 3) and a beer! The sauce, fresh mozzarella and crust are unbeatable.

Go and enjoy!

The service and food at this restaurant is fantastic. If you have a desire for real Italian home cooked meals, don't miss this. Portions are huge, quality is excellent. Specials daily, pizza and hoagies are great as well

Tony and Nello's was the old "Jo-Jo's" renovated! They have the best Italian foo in St. Pete and their pizza is the best as well!! Highly recommend for anyone to get a "Taste of St. Pete."
