Italian
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.

It's been many years since I was last at Armani's and my expectations were measured to not be disappointed. Atmosphere and ambiance were still very first class and the service top notch. It's as if Massimo has never left! Our veal picatta was right on the money, the salads and sides were perfectly prepared and the wine choices were varied enough to make almost anyone happy. Wines by the glass may be a bit over priced but the quality of choices by the glass do make up for it somewhat. The cuisine does feel a bit limited Italian/American and the decor seems like a step back in time but the nice thing is no Harvard "mba" has come in to maximize space and squeezed more table on top of each other so it is a wonderful place for a nice quiet meal and even feel a bit romantic if you are looking for that.

We have been coming to Armani’s for years, and it has always been our “go to restaurant” for a good meal. Our last couple of visits have been disappointing.
I do want to say our service and server, Khalid, has been wonderful.
The “new” chef has left us underwhelmed, and the menu over the last year has been reduced. We have mentioned this on our last couple of visits, and were told a new menu is coming. We are still waiting...Please hurry! Pasta dishes need to be returned to the glory days, lobster and shrimp need to return to the menu, and appetizers need to be expanded. They have a wonderful antipasto bar that is their feature, and it is wonderful, but if one is looking for another option, there are very few alternatives.
Our Caesar salad this past weekend was awful. We were served a questionable “romaine heart” that was dark green, limp, and room temperature. Was it cooked in a microwave? An expensive veal Scallopini dish was served over a massive mush of polenta with too much gravy on top. This is not what we consider high-end food. The veal chop was good, but a much smaller portion than has been served on the past.

Great setting (atop hotel with panoramic views), but that was about it. Food was mediocre at best, and our waiter seemed to prioritize larger parties/tables (i.e. that were buying multiple bottles of wine) over our 2 drink per person (4 total) table; thus why he would disappear for 15+ minutes during multiple stages of our dinner. Place is also stuffy, with a strict dress-code and an aura of thinking they are some high-end NYC restaurant (they aren't). A change in lighting (a dimmer) could do wonders for this place aesthetically, too. Won't be back, won't recommend (outside of grabbing or taking a drink up there for a Sunset view).

It’s definitely a nice and gorgeous restaurant with an amazing view and a good service. Food wasn’t as good as the atmosphere though. My husband liked the chicken. But the salmon that I ordered was just average. Pasta bolognese wasn’t that good, and Caesar salad was bad. The latter one was taken off of our bill, which was very nice of our server. Also, since it was my birthday, she gave us tiramisu, no charge. Overall, I liked the place a lot. I just wish the food was a bit better.

Service was very good, menu appeared good, but flavors and texture were all wrong. Octopus dish was actually an overly sour calamari with no char. Crab bisque was watery and too salty--no creamy texture at all. Pasta was mediocre. Would not come here again--way overpriced for a rather poor meal.

The views and location was excellent. The menu was very limited and we were pushed along to take the antipasti bar which was not very good...the items were absent a lot of taste to a point of being blah. Our waiter had multiple tables to take care of and was very slow and inattentive. Long wait in between his appearance and would had to request help from another employee to get another cocktail. Do not recommend it for food and service but for the views if you get a cocktail and sit out on the porch, it was very nice.

Our server was Kalieb, he was outstanding he suggested certain dish's and since it was my wife birthday. she tried one of his suggestion. it was delicious. I'm a steak and potatoes man so I ordered the filet migion. My wife makes a better steak nothing to write home about. there was a wait but the view and the company was awesome. now I have to say I also tried the aniti pasta and the bread the sangria and it was superb. kalieb makes u feel like a million ,bucks. They don't try to rush u out it was a pleasant experience.
When I go back I'm going to order a Italian dish. I still give it high ratings.

Spectacular views and delicious food and very courteous waiters. The particular night we went for our anniversary it was just overly loud with three separate large groups of people. Two were average noise levels but one was obnoxiously loud the entire time, however that’s not necessarily Armani’s problem, although it would have made for a more enjoyable evening had they been asked to tone it down some for the sake of the other patrons. Overall though it was a very nice evening because of the other great things such as the views, food and service!
