A word from Armani's
Known for its authentic Northern Italian cuisine, the new Armani’s restaurant features a fresh, sophisticated design and an atmosphere ideal for a romantic dinner for two, a get-together with friends or an upscale business function. With floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Tampa Bay, guests can take in spectacular panoramic views during dinner and enjoy a drink on the outdoor patio before or after their meal.

Armani’s signature antipasto bar allows guests to create their own first course from a selection of more than 30 items and a dedicated station offers fresh made-to-order Caesar salads. Armani’s “primi piatti” menu includes vegetarian, pasta and soup selections, while main courses range from veal scaloppini in a truffle sauce over mascarpone polenta to wild salmon on pan fried risotto bianco.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food experience overall was acceptable, however not outstanding. We expected more for the price. Separating the bar tab and dining tab was kind of cumbersome and should be combined. Service overall was slow. I expected more since when I made reservation I informed them it was birthday, anniversary and other celebration all combined. This was not acknowledged upon arrival until I mentioned to the server. Will I go back again most likely no as I did not much care for the menu. Great view and great for special occasions."

  • "I was fortunate enough to be able to go to Armani's the night before my birthday. The view was fantastic at sunset, the food could not have been better and our servers were spot on. It was all I could do to finish the Antipasto Bar and my entrée. The wine list was impressive with many new (to me) labels. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that would listen."

  • "Ambience, food, service,scenic view including sunset and a lightning storm over Tampa Bay!!! What more could you ask for!! This restaurant has it all! My girlfriend and I celebrated our 6th Anniversary here and I am so glad we found this restaurant. As a current 16 year GM over a high end restaurant it is sometimes hard to go out and enjoy my self as I am constantly observing what is going on in the restaurant. The staff is very professional and the hospitality was something I do not see much of from the Tampa area! The staff was very accommodating and very knowledgeable! The staff went above and beyond and the food melted in your mouth. They even gave us a little dessert surprise to celebrate. Thank you for such a special Anniversary!"

  • "We have a tradition for my husband's birthday at Armani's and have always requested the same table# 30 with reservation. When we arrived, we were told that table or no table by the window would not be available for at least an hour or more. We took a small table in the lounge area and told the receptionist to move us to a window table in the dining room when it becomes available. We ended up eating our whole meal at the small table in the lounge area. Although there is no guarantee that we would get what we requested but there was no effort whatsoever to accommodate us . We have always had great experiences at Armani's for many years and always recommend to our friends and guests but we will change venue from now on."

  • "Spent $600 after a few bottles of good wine and a healthy tip. Totally worth it though. Best view in Tampa (probably all of central Florida) great food, outstanding service. Never felt like we were waiting on food or like we were being rushed. I had the veal scallopine, it was impeccable. Can't wait to go back an try the Osso Bucco."

  • "Over the last few years many high end restaurants have popped up in Tampa. I have been to them all. It has been years since I have been to Armani's. I went there last night and was reminded and once again... amazed at how spectacular Armani's is. The ambience, views and cuisine is beyond compare to any other restaurant in Tampa. This is the ideal place to go to for a special occasion or to make an impression. I will definitely be frequenting Armani's more often in the future."

  • "Armani's has sure gone downhill. Seated AWAY from the bay & sunset- even though there were several tables available. Waiter ARGUED with us when we made a negative comments on the view from our table of the freeway. Antipesto was good. Pasta dishes were over cooked and too saturated with sauce. Key lime gelato too sweet and not tart. Meal was OK-can get the same from Olive Garden! Went for the ambiance, great food & service. Disappointed on all counts. Last impression before leaving- someone had thrown up all over the ladies loo- ."

  • "We went on the 4th of July for the first time, the views were amazing and it was a great way to watch the fireworks. The food was delicious, although portions small for the price. Our server was very nice and knowedgable, when he visitied the table. The service took forever and was way more spaced out than it needed to be. Our final coffee service took a solid 20 minutes from when we ordered it, our dessert even came out first and we had already completed it. This was our only plans for the evening, but if we had elsewhere to go it would have been irrating. Biggest complaint would be the AC levels, FREEZING! Even my husband in pants and sleeves was uncomfortable."

  • "Went to Armani's to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary on July 4th. I requested a table on the window so we could watch fireworks and we got a great table. The food was good but not great. The special bone in veal chop was tough. The veggies that it came with were a bit soggy. The dessert was ordinary. The service was very good and the views of the water and the fireworks off in the distance made the night very special. Yes, we would go back even if we weren't wow'd by the food. The bill was under $200 which I thought was reasonable as we had a glass of champagne and a glass of nice wine as well."

  • "Great anniversary dinner. Waiters were attentive without hovering. Did not feel rushed at all. Food was superb."

  • "Armani's is one of the only Five-Star restaurants in the Tampa Bay area and that rating is well earned ... Beyond excellent food, unique flavors and combinations, attentive and professional wait staff, gorgeous view. It's got all of the makings for a top-notch romantic evening."

  • "This is the second time my family has dined at Armani's and we continue to be disappointed with management's ability to deliver a sepcial seat requests. In both instances, I made reservations weeks in advance and specifically asked for a west facing table adjacent to the windows. This is very important because 50% of the appeal in eating at Armani's is the view! I don't want to pay $40/meal to overlook the airport. Both times Armani's failed to fulfill my request. I understand that several people probably ask for a window seat, but this past time we dined at Armani's, 75% of the restaurant was empty and yet they still couldn't hold a window table for us facing west? And even worse, the hostess wasn't even remotely apologetic about it."

  • "On a hot summer evening on our way to see the fireworks at Channelside we made a date for early dinner at Armani's. 14 stories high at Grand Hyatt we had a great view of the Courtney Campbell and kids running through wooded boardwalks out to the waterfront way down below. There was sunlight streaming through shaded windows as we chose a twosome table and a great meal - enjoying superb shrimp with scallops carbonara and citrus glazed salmon- both generously portioned and tastefully cooked. The atmosphere was festive with the upcoming 4th of July weekend -as the gracious pianist played mellow nostalgic tunes to garnish the occasion. Much appreciated the friendly service-and will certainly recommend."

  • "My husband and I went for our anniversary and enjoined a beatiful view from our table. Once dinner was done we took our drinks on the deck and watched the sun set. It was amazing!!!"

  • "My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner there... The the food, views and service were great... Would definitely go back!"

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary here. We have been to several five star restaurants, but this one is exceptional. The view of Tampa Bay was fantastic. Our servers made us feel like the most important guests there. And of course the food was great! Try the Chef's Choice Antipasto Salad. We will definitely be going back soon."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Food and service are superior, wine list is great! Ambience and view are amazing. Get a reservation before sunset against the west windows for an incredible view!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Been going here for years. Excellent food. Everything is always cooked to perfection. Love the appetizers and the veal cannot be beat anywhere. Service was great. Thanks for another excellent evening. Hard to beat looking out over Tampa Bay. Piano music is great idea."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Although the service was a little slow, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The food was really good but not outstanding. It is the perfect place for a special date or to celebrate a special occasion. The ambiance is what makes Armani's so very special."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We celebrated both Father's Day and a birthday at Armani's. We first selected from the antipasto bar but I don't think we would spend $19.00 per person to order it again (a salad would be preferred). My veal scaloppini, large portion was, again, good, not great (the risotto served with it was very good). My husband's dish was the stonebass, again prepared well, but, again, not great. However, our dessert, the hazelnut cheesecake was fabulous (everyone should try it). Albert, our waiter created a Happy Birthday plate complete with candle in serving it. The two outstanding features were Albert, our waiter (ask for him) and the ambiance (quiet elegance)."

  • "Chose Armani's for our 20th Wedding Anniversary Dinner based on researching online romantic restaurants in Tampa. The view was lovely but the food and service were about the same as going to a chain restaurant. The hostess did acknowledge our special occasion when we checked in and they did present us with a nice dessert. I may have set my expectations a bit too high. I was really hoping for an extrordinary meal/experience but in actuality it was rather average. My thoughts is that this venue is great for a sunset drink but the upscale prices aren't necessarily warranted."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Expected much more from such a beautiful, established restaurant. Service was good, but the food was terrible. Too much dressing on salads, too much salt in lobster bisque, way too much sauce on pasta (could barely find the noodles). "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Room temperature at bar was hot and uncomfortable for quite a while; older woman bartender all alone and overwhelmed, took 20 minutes to get a drink; No Italian Maître De or servers; the Italian ambience was missing; service was slow; disappointed with numbers of men in jeans and sneakers-minimum dress code necessary if it is to remain upscale; dining room smelled like the oven was being cleaned for a period; menu had nearly no Italian favorites-menu appeared to try to be too fancy therefore received 2 out of 4 dishes ordered not looking like what you thought you ordered; gelato was more icy than creamy; Armani's has been a favorite over the years but seems to have dropped their standards dramatically since I was there just 6 months ago."

  • "Armani's is a great restaurant. We had a very nice dinner I had the Osso Buco and Lorraine had the Pappardelle with shrimp. Both were very good. The wine list is good but doesn't include many reasonably priced selections. We had a bottle of Rioja and it was good."

  • "Great View, Great Service, Great Food. This is a place to go for a special occasion or on somebody else's expense account."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The view from Armani's is always stunning and this night did not disappoint. However, the food, while certainly passable, did not match the view...or the price, for that matter. The service in the dining room was impeccable, friendly and swift. The antipasto buffet was pedestrian and the server behind the buffet was slow and less than knowledgeable. The entrees, fish and a filet, were normal fare you would expect at any restaurant. Next time for a special treat, we will try some place where the food is better."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Highly recommended. Antipasto was super good. Only complaint: more salad would have been good because it was so delicious"

  • "We had a wonderful experience at Armani's! My parents and I came for dinner and were astounded at the quality of the service, the privacy of our table, and of course the excellent food. We never felt rushed and our server Maria was exceptional. We watched a storm table-side out our spectacular window and then the clouds cleared and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. We even got to see flamingos having their own dinner in the bay below. My parents have lived in Tampa for 40+ years and have never been to Armani's - what a shame! We will definitely be back soon. I live in NYC and this was a special dinner to end a very special visit. Thank you Armani's!"

  • "Food was as expected given the prices. I recommend getting their early and having a drink watching the sunset, tables in the bar are first come first serve. Service by our waiter, Jerry, was very average, had much better service when we ate at Hyatt in Clearwater, which was a shame. "

  • "I have heard great things about Armanis, so I chose to bring my girlfriend for her birthday. Long story short we ordered the swordfish special. I thought the fish was perfect so I kept my dish. She did not enjoy it and we asked the server if we could order something else. I told him I would pay for it (we hate sending food back), but I wanted her to have a meal she enjoyed on her birthday. This is when the night went down hill. The server seemed so offended that we sent it back and was so cold the rest of the meal. It was as if he thought we were no longer good enough to be there. I can not explain how off putting this experience was. "

  • "I started out by having a glass of white sangria at the bar. The bartender was very nice and the sangria was wonderful! It was made from fresh fruit that he had started 24 hours before and was perfect! The rest of the party came and we watched the sunset from the sitting area in the bar. Simply gorgeous! Hostess wasn't paying attention so we had to inquire about seating 20 min late. We were then seated at a table with a beautiful view (I requested one by the window)! The waiter came promptly and took our drink and salad bar order. Nice selection at the bar. No one told us but the whole table can get 1 plate for the $19 charge so that would have been better since we had ordered an appetizer too. Food took a long time but was excellent! "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Our dinner for two took more than 3 hours. Entrees were cold and rubbery, so I assume spent time under a lamp. Drinks ordered arrived incorrect but since we rarely saw a server nothing was sent back. Armani's is said to be one of the finest restaurants in Tampa but our experience was disappointing. If you pay that kind of money for a dinner you should receive a unique experience and this was far from unique. At this point I don't think we would consider returning as there are to many restaurants in the area which have provided us consistently great meals. "

  • "Had an amazing meal at Armani's for our 5th wedding anniversary. Great view from our table for the sunset. Simply prepared dishes and delicious. Waiter service was adequate if not overly attentive. My one complaint was the hostess station. We arrived about an hour before our 7PM reservation and we quite happy to sit at the bar and have a cocktail or two. We asked the hostess if she'd come over to get us when it was time for our reservation. At about 7:10 when we hadn't heard anything my wife went to the hostess and asked if we'd be seated soon. She got a very cold reaction ("We'll get to you") as if we were asking for something special. We finally got help from the bartender and were seated by 7:20. That area nees improvement "
