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.

    Piano in the nice lounge was so loud that conversation was not possible. Had the hostess request the player to soften the music; must have made her angry because she actually played louder! Food was very good but not special for the price, wine list was good. Service excellent. View of the bay excellent.For a visitor to the Bay area it is nice; for a local expecting a special meal and evening I'd give it a pass. Much better places in the area.

    My husband and I rarely get an opportunity to have a date night so I really expect the best from the place we go to when we do. Armani's did not disappoint. We will come back for another date night. I would suggest to pay attention to the sunset times because we missed it but I imagine it would be a prefect place to watch. The food was amazing and the wait staff was superb.

From our sunset cocktails to my perfectly prepared ribeye, our server was very attentive and knowledgeable on every aspect of the menu and wine list. I would highly recommend Armani's for every occasion, but mostly for special occasions, they make you feel like family.

    Visited on our daughter's anniversary and enjoyed a pleasant evening. Requested a window seat, but was told none was available, even though we were seated at 630pm on a Monday. Our waiter was new to us and though friendly was not as personable as expected. Though nothing was denied, I felt like we had to ASK for suggestions and descriptions. Not our best night at Armani's but always predictably good--rarely disappoints. The dessert with "35th anniversary" inscribed on the plate was photo-worthy and a big hit with our daughter. We tried one of the specials, "queen snapper," a very nice fish "steak" but a bit dry, perhaps overdone? A stroll onto the outdoor deck was a highlight on a cool Florida evening ... with that spectacular Armani View.

    Very nice restaurant with space and quiet to be able to have nice romantic evening with your favorite person(s). Price are steep but reasonable, service is quick, maybe too quick. A $300 meal for two should breath a little. Ossobucco was very good although marinara sauce needs to be rethought, ossobucco has enough flavor without it. Bar operations/area seemed in a little disarray, need to work on 'sleekness' of this part. Overall very good, but not exceptional, still need that extra 5% for exceptional. Nice antipasti display. A small dance area by the piano might be nice. Patio area is underutilized. Decor is classy inside. Again almost.......Tampa still needs that perfect topflight restaurant.

    This was my second visit to Armani's. I highly recommend the Chef's Selection Antipasto plate for starters, awesome selection or select your own. The service was attentive and non-rushed, The restaurant is on top of the Grand Hyatt and the view is tremendous, highly recommend to eat outside. The veal was like butter, the wine list extensive and reasonable, KUDO's Armani's

    If you want an amazing view Armani's is the place. We arrived just before sunset where we enjoyed the moment on the terrace overlooking Tampa bay and the city. Our dinner was very good and the wait staff couldn't of been more friendly and caring of how we were enjoying our evening. I would recommend if your looking for tastefully delicious food and a fantastic view this is the place for you!!!

    We were married at Armani's two years ago and have returned each year for dinner on our anniversary. The view and atmosphere around sunset is unbeatable for a romantic occasion, and the food and service is always top notch. We had the same waiter for both our first and second anniversary and he actually remembered us from a whole year ago! He was so sweet and brought us a little piece of cake and had the plate decorated to say "happy anniversary" and it was lovely. The experience here always feels elegant but relaxed. We spend a few hours having a couple courses and enjoying the view.

    I've lived in Tampa my whole life and have often thought of dining at Armani's. I've visited Oystercatchers and enjoyed the experience. I've also visited Burns on a few occasions, but have now I refuse to dine there as apparently there is no dress or manner code. My last visit to Burns was on the occasion of my wife's birthday and we dined next to folks who looked like they just rolled out of jail wearing shorts, flip-flops and tank tops. Not a situation that puts one in an enjoyable dining mood, much less one where you are spending a premium. Where to go for an exceptional dining experience where street bums aren't in dining sight? Armani's! The menu, service and view all command top marks with extra points added for the clientele.

    They really made our anniversary dinner special. We were told we got the best table in the restaurant and it was truly a stunning view (only downside was the rainy, overcast weather). I had informed them we would be celebrating our anniversary and I think just about every server wished us a happy anniversary. A little extra something special on our table setting and dessert which made it all the more special. Loved the antipasto bar. And our seafood based entrees were delicious (and not salty which I tend to be sensitive to). A leisurely dinner meant to be enjoyed and to take your time with. Highly recommend and will return.

    We had some out-of-town clients staying at the Hyatt, so we invited them to Armani's for dinner. Their service is always exceptional, but the food this time was slow to come from the kitchen and 3 dishes were mediocre at best. We have had excellent food so many times at Armani's, but this was a disappointment. Our waitress was wonderful, agreed the food was not prepared to standard, and offered to exchange the meals, but it had taken so long to just get our meals that we all just wanted to eat and then relax elsewhere. Maybe next time.

    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.
