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.

    I've lived in this area my entire life and have known about Armani's for many years. Saturday September 6 was my first time. Greeted upon our arrival and very friendly I was already happy. After having a drink at the bar we were sat at our table. A great view but unfortunately our table was next to one with young kids who couldn't stay off their phones. Our server could not have seemed more disinterested in our table. He was gone for 15-20 minutes at a time and forgot a drink order. At one point we almost left because we had been seated for 30 minutes without being asked about food. We spoke to the manager and we asked for another server (Patricia) who was excellent. The rest of our night was excellent.

    Over priced food with no service. There are so many restaurants in Tampa with better food and service. The highlight of the night were the piano bar and the bartender. After our food was served the waiter came back once to checked on us. He brought the dessert menu and came back 20 minutes later. By that time I just wanted this experience to be over so we did not order dessert. Next time I want a nice view I'll just go to the bar.

    We have dined at Armani's numerous times. The ambience can't be beat, and it is nice for special occasions. What was disappointing was that the former dress code had all but disappeared; several guests were definitely sloppy. The food was acceptable; the signature dish (osso bucco) could have been better, and the seafood linguini was a bit 'dry'. Appetizers were excellent, and desserts were very good. When we first dined at this restaurant, the food was much better, and the quality has declined. Our waiter was exceptional, and the price was acceptable for our meal.

    Enjoyed my meal. Kept seeing other tables given candles, with rose pedals, and wondered why them and not us. Service was all over us to start, and then largely gone. Enjoyed the special occasion dress and ambiance, until a different crowd in shorts tromped through. Tight nature of seating can make tables seem to be on an aisle or path, if you are not directly pointed at window.

    Armani's is not as upscale as we remembered. While visiting Tampa we returned to Armani's hoping to give our adult children a fine dining experience. We were disappointed to find it louder than expected, dress code relaxed (man in jeans), napkins no longer match light or dark attire, wait staff not as attentive(no one re-folded my napkin), and the food quality was simply OK. This was a very expensive evening and we expected more!

    In researching fine dining areas with a romantic atmosphere in Tampa, Armani's was top rated and it's for a reason. The restaurant is on the top floor of the Grand Hyatt hotel right on Tampa Bay. It occupies the entire corner of the building that faces the bay so there are a lot of tables with great views. In making the reservation I requested a window table and also mentioned that it was our anniversary. They sat us at a great table and the service was amazing. Someone was there any time we thought we might need or want something without ever asking or needing to flag someone down. The food was amazing also. We started out with their signature Antipasto and had the chef put together his favorite selection for us. It was all so good.

    This is an exquisite restaurant! It never fails to delight with its lovely views of Tampa Bay, its friendly yet non-intrusive waitstaff and its consistently excellent menu. Prices are certainly comparable to, and often more reasonable than other fine dining restaurants. The ambience is one of quiet elegance. After all these years, it does not seem dated. Somehow it has managed to remain current and in step with changing tastes without becoming trendy. I have been reminded that this restaurant should not be reserved only for special occasions and will return more often.

    My husband I arrived ahead of our reservation, but were seated immediately. The antipasto plate prepared by the chef included a wonderful assortment of food to sample, enjoyed with our Pinot wine. Our meals were prepared perfectly and we enjoyed the flourless chocolate torte for dessert with espresso while taking in the amazing view of the bay at night. Thanks for another amazing date night out with my husband.

    Armani's has a quaint bar scene with beautiful water and bridge view. We like to order a drink in the bar and chat over the piano music before dining in the restaurant. The antipasto bar is wonderful and is perfect as an appetizer. I would suggest one plate per couple so as not to ruin your appetite for your entree later. The filet mignon was delicious and it was served with a yellow tomato slice and red tomato slice. It was divine. The outdoor balcony has a fire table and sexy view of the water and lights at night.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.
