With 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. The “primi piatti” menu includes vegetarian, pasta and soup selections, while main courses range from veal scaloppini with a porcini-truffle reduction to bison ribeye over Italian gratin.

While we pride ourselves on being the top special occasion restaurant in Tampa, we do not guarantee a specific table type or view, we will seat best available table upon arrival to Armani's.

    This is a very expensive restaurant serving food that is just okay. The view of the sunset was great if you're into sunsets- they happen every day. Table service was good and I would have tipped more if the total bill wasn't so high. The bar service was not good but it isn't the bartender's fault. They have one bar and one bartender with no bar back for the entire restaurant which greatly increases wait times and offers a glaring portrayal that owner's/operator's care more for their own pockets than their customer's dining experience.

    I proposed to my wife here. The ambiance and the view was amazing. I let the staff know what the occasion was and what I was planning and the accommodated fully. They pick the perfect spot in the restaurant to seat us. The food was good but it's the atmosphere that really stood out for me. My wife loved it!

    Armani's is one of the nicest upscale Italian restaurants I have visited in Florida. This restaurant is so good that I decided to Drive 150 miles so I can have my sister experience the food & atmosphere at Armani's. I am never disappointed with the service, ambiance, and the quality of the food. The only thing that was disappointing is that I made the reservation over a month in advance and still was unable to reserve a window table. I would think that if a customer is willing to drive over 150 miles to dine in a restaurant, and makes a reservation a month in advance for a special occasion, that they would be able to accommodate the request. We also arrived to the reservation 30 minutes early, and stated that we would wait for a window table to be available, and were still not accommodated. Not to mention the expense for an overnight hotel room just so we can dine at Armani's. I spent over $400 for dinner in this restaurant, and you would think that you can request a window seat and be able to get one...

    In Tampa Bay, it is hard to beat Armani’s for fine Italian food. The service is always top notch. Everything on the menu is delightful. Anti pasta bar is a can’t miss. Fabulous wine selection. And, of course, the views of Tampa Bay are breathtaking. Highly recommend.

    We have expected more from Armani’s. The food was okay. I mean salmon was testing weird, not bad, but it was not definitely a fresh catch fish. 200% it was frozen and sitting in the refrigerator for a while. A veal shank was good. The way how it was served horrible. But the worst thing which disappointed me most was music. We are in $$$$ restaurant and on Friday at 10 pm there was no music at all as well as visitors. Bar was empty, restaurant was empty. And I am not surprised. Such a boring place. People were coming and leaving right away. I don’t understand what is the problem to play background music? Just saying. Will not come back to this place. The only one thing which we like was anti pasta plate. Yes, definitely worst try it! That’s it.

    Food was good, but I was not blown away by it at that price point. Menu was shockingly limited for that highly rated a place. Most dishes were over risotto and shared a similar taste palate. I wanted more variety. Service was sub-par. Inattentive and pushy (with ordering a bottle of wine instead of a glass). Strange concept to wait in line at the raw bar for 10 minutes. Felt like a buffet not a fine restaurant.

A must try is the charcuterie board, the side of gnocchi and the sea scallops. Thank you Armani for making this dining experience a very memorable evening.

    While the food and atmosphere were outstanding, we were disappointed that you servers knew nothing about the proper way to serve. They cleared plates before everyone was finished - a NO-NO. Everyone's appetizers were cleared except mine because I wasn't finished. That left me as the only one with a plate and felt rushed to finish, which I did so I wouldn't feel ridiculous. Good restaurants train their staffs properly. VERY disappointing. And a reason to not return. Many restaurants serve good food, but what separates the good from the outstanding is the service. When you pay excellent restaurant prices you expect great service, which we did not get!

To stand on the 14th floor deck and be able to view Tampa on one side and the sunset on the other was amazing! The service, food, and ambience were first-class. We definitely won't wait for another special occasion to return to Armani's!

    Was very disappointed with the service. It took 45 minutes to ge5 our check, and then we had to hunt down the server at the bar in order to pay for our meal. We purchased a bottle of wine, did not finish it, and left without him giving it to us. We were in our car, heading for the exit before we realized we didn’t have it, and had to go back. We were there to celebrate my birthday, and he wished us a happy anniversary (the celebratory tiramisu had a Happy Anniversary chocolate garnish). Highlight of the evening was the antipasto bar and the young lady who helped us with our choices. I don’t usually share restaurant experiences, but for all the hype, I guess I was expecting more...

    We’ve been dining at Armani’s for 30 years - since the Grand Hyatt opened. It’s not aged well. Food is really disappointing- my wife’s filet was a poor cut and not cooked properly. I’ve had the Osso Bucco dozens of times. It was a poor replica of years past. Have a drink, enjoy the view and have dinner elsewhere. Sorry to say.
