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.

    Hostess left much to be desired as she shuffled us through annoyed at a request for a sunset view on a special occasion. The waitress (?Stephanie) made up for the disappointment in the hostess & was exceptional with personality & timing of service. Food was very good & portion size was greater than expected.

    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.

    My wife and I celebrated our 39th anniversary with you. We felt welcomed and appreciated from the time we were seated throughout the evening. The food was outstanding. We loved the antipasto prepared for us as an appetizer...great flavors and surprises. Our dinners were all that we had hoped for. We shall return and recommend to friends and family.

    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.

    Delicious Italian food with an amazing view. We actually didn't get a view on the side of the water but it was okay since it was dark and rainy. Walked passed the view and it was gorgeous. Food was pricier but delish. Reminded me of Italy both price and taste.

    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.

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.
