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.

Too bright for a romantic restaurant. Lights up really high like a cafeteria. But everything else Ok. Loud talker next to us. Out of the wine I selected
Thank you, Julie, for the honest feedback. We are sorry to hear the lighting was bright during your recent visit, this is typically not the case. We appreciate you bringing it to our attention and we will be sure to monitor the ambiance more closely. We look forward to having you back soon!
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.
Thank you, Tetiana, for the detailed comments regarding your recent visit. We appreciate your honesty and we hope to see you again soon!
The case of the missing basil! I ordered a caprese salad, but not one bite of basil was on it. It had sprouts, which were good, but no basil. They nicely honored my request for no birthday singing! Veal was delicious!
I"m surprised to see that you didn't have any basil on your caprese salad! I am glad that nevertheless you had a nice birthday dinner with us. We appreciate you choosing to celebrate with us and invite you to return to try our new menu offerings in December!
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.
Surprised us with a dessert for our 7 year anniversary
Thank you for the great review!
Be prepared to spend a few hours because there is not rush to turn tables for next seating. There is time to relax and savor every sip and bite.
Absolutely relax, sip and savoy every bite. We are so glad that you enjoyed you experience. Thank you for the great review.
Best View in Tampa Bay. Excellent Service. Great food.
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!
Top shelf restaurant. Unless you are extremely hungry, skip the ala carte salad or soup and choose the antipasta bar instead. More than plenty to eat.
Thanks for the kind review!
Had a wonderful dinner. Food was excellent. We both had the veal piccata... it was delicious. My husband doesn’t like mushrooms and he devoured this dish. The desserts however were not to our liking. The flourless chocolate cake was spongy and the bourbon budín was too runny. My lemon drop Martini was also not favored. It didn’t have fresh squeezed lemon. I could taste the sourness of bottled lemon juice. Other than those few details our experience was great. Our waiter was attentive and the views were fantastic! Overall, we had a great experience.
Thank you very much for the honest feedback! We will share your comments with the team and we look forward to having you return!
Always a pleasure to eat at Armani's.
Thank you very much!
Excellent. All staff treated us very well. We were not rushed. The view was great.
Thank you very much! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit with us.
Amazing food ❤️
Window table was hardly in the restaurant; should have asked to be moved. Awful jazz music was noticeable. Get some good dinner music. Food was okay; probably paid of the view.
Thank you David for your honest feedback. We took note of your comments and will share with the team.
Food was terrible. Beautiful view.
Thank you for your feed back I will message you directly to get more details about your visit.
Another must visit restaurants while in Tampa. Food and service is excellent. And the view is beautiful. Looking forward to my next visit!
Exceptional experience! Welcoming staff, cleanliness and atmosphere was great!
Thank you very much, Conroy! We look forward to having you back again sometime soon!
Had an amazing dinner, celebrated my girlfriends dinner and had the best service one could ask for.
We are very happy to see that you had such an amazing birthday dinner! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The bar area was very nice, incredible service by our host ( female). Food was not enough based off of the price. Very small portions. To pay 32.00 for spaghetti and chicken was sad. My wife's filet mignon was a very tiny in portion. View was awesome, which explains the pricing. We celebrated a 25 year anniversary and made it clear in our reservation, and you would think my wife would be surprised with a nice piece of dessert for this important occasion, but wasn't. Spending 0ver $300.00 you would think it would be offered. I understand its a business, but that's how as paying customer you share this with friends to get people there. Just disappointed in it. The staff never recognized it as well to us. Armani's will not be recommended on my behalf.
Daryl, thank you for taking the time to share the details regarding your recent experience with us. It saddens me to see this; please know that this is not what we are known for. A 25 year anniversary is truly something special and quite a milestone, and we are grateful that you chose to celebrate with us. I've sent you a private message to get more details to make the necessary adjustment. Jamie Augustyn Guest Services Manager
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. Cannot beat the views.
Thanks, Erin! We're excited to have you return soon so that you can try our new Fall menu!
We requested Khalid for our first time going to Armani’s - best decision. He was so kind and friendly. Made our experience all the more memorable. We got to know him more personally towards the end of the night and will continue to request him as we will be coming back. He was attentive and recommended the best dishes. Veal piccata was absolutely delicious and the antipasto station was our favorite part! Would recommend this restaurant and appreciate Khalid for taking care of us and making it so special for us.
Thank you for the positive comments! We are very happy to have Khalid and we look forward to having you back in the near future. We will be sure to share the your shining review with him!
Amazing experience. Excellent service, gorgeous views and food was well prepared. We will definitely be back
Thank you! We are glad you had an amazing experience and we certainly look forward to seeing you again!
Nice view of Tampa Bay. Go for a cocktail to watch the sunset. Then go someplace else for dinner. Food and service both terrible, so bad they comped our meal.
Timms I am truly sorry that you did not enjoy your visit fully. I will each out to you in a private message to get the details and make the necessary adjustment. Kind Regards, Jonniene Moritz General Manager
Piano was a little too loud. View was spectacular. . Had to ask for water - in a place of this caliber customer needs should be anticipated- such as empty water glasses. Food was outstanding
Brian Thank you for your feed back we appreciate the great review!
It was not the food I enjoy. Salmon lacked taste and as dry.
I am sorry that you salmon was lacking in taste and was dry. I have reach out to you via private message in hopes that you would try us once again.
Attended on wife's birthday, waiter to drink orders and got around to bringing them to us about 15 minutes later. Ordered food and took a solid hour to get out. And then couldn't get the side order of pasta right. Took it back and brought out another that wasn't what we had asked for. We told them we would take it anyway, but they insisted on taking it back. Finally brought out what we ordered after we had finished our meal. They were nice enough take it off the bill, and did bring out a desert for my wife for her birthday. It was so noisy we could hardly hear ourselves talk. We were also seated next to the door and the whole night people kept coming and going to the deck. Every time the door opened a hot blast would blow in.
Food was not very good, had Salmon and the sea bass. Dry and tasteless. Not what you would expect from a restaurant with Armani's reputation. Can get much better food at a lot less money, elsewhere in Tampa.
Larry I am truly sorry that you were not able to enjoy dinner with your wife. Thank you for you honest feed back. I have sent you a private message in hopes that you would consider dining with again. Kind Regards, Jonniene Moritz
Not a good dining experience. Atmosphere was nice and service started out strong. When we got our food, my salmon was quite fishy. I enjoy salmon regularly at restaurants and this was close to the worst I've had. My fiance ordered the filet medium well, but it was well, well done when it came out. The potatoes served with it were cold, however.. almost frozen. The waiter was delightful at the start of our meal, explaining the specials thoroughly and bringing my glass of wine just before my meal as I had requested. Once the food came out though, he became quite scarce. We had a lengthy wait for our plates to be cleared and to request the check. He seemed busy so we were forgiving. The service was not the problem, but we felt the food was sub par for a fine dining restaurant. We left saying we would have enjoyed our meals at Outback Steakhouse more.
Jennifer G Please accept my apologies you the sub par food and experience this is not how we intended you visit to be. I want you to know that we take your feed back very seriously and will make the necessary adjustments to ensure that this will not happen again. Thank you for you feed back .
Great views. Great service. Live pianist lovely. Food excellent
Glad you enjoyed your experience. Margo the pianist plays Thursday Friday and Saturday! We wold love to see you again!
Waiter should work for men in Black not friendly at all plus he sold me on a special yeah 89 dollars a steak lol...js
I am sadden to hear that your experience was less than positive, I will reach out out to you directly so I may get the details of your visit. Thank you for the candid feedback please be assured that our short comings will be addressed.
It was a wonderful atmosphere although there was an event going on that attracted a large and rowdy crowd. The staff made my birthday very special and all the cuisine was impressive!
Joshua we are glad you enjoyed your birthday dinner! We hope to see you back soon.
Amazing evening celebrating my husband's and my birthdays! Beautiful sunset, excellent food and service.
Great to hear you both enjoyed the celebration.
Certainly best view of any Italian in Tampa area. The antipasti station is fantastic. Good quality Italian food in a very cool place.
Martin L Thank you for the great review, We hope to see you soon.
Everything from the food to the service everything was outstanding. The only complaint of mine was the drinks were a bit overpriced. I will be going again very soon!
Thank you very much for the positive comments and honest feedback! We appreciate it!
Go only for drinks very over priced meal and it was burnt. The views are nice. So many better restrarunts in Tampa save your money don't eat here menu was lacking.
We are saddened to see this. If you could reach out to our General Manager, Jonniene Moritz, so that we may have some additional details regarding your recent visit - we would greatly appreciate it! She can be reached at Jonniene.Moritz@hyatt. c om or 813.207.6671. Thank you for your time; we hope to hear from you soon that these issues may be addressed promptly.
The views...WOW. The service...GREAT. The food...UNBELIEVABLE.
I hadn’t been to Armani’s in years and decided to go in for one of my buddy’s girlfriend’s birthday. Every dish that was served was unique. From the crab bisque with a tarragon and goat cheese fritter in the middle to the U8 scallops on top of a phenomenal mushroom risotto and A5 wagyu I think it would be more than fair to say that they are unbelievably lucky to have such a creative chef in the kitchen. Whenever food is prepared this well I always insist on speaking with the chef. After meeting Chef Wilson I stand by my statement above that Armani’s is lucky to have him. His knowledge of cuisine is exceptional and his passion for his trade truly shows in his dishes. Will definitely be back soon, but with food this great it most certainly won’t be soon enough.
Thank you very much for the kind words and great details regarding your recent experience with us here at Armani's! Chef Jonathan is extremely talented and we are happy to have him on our team. We're glad you enjoyed everything and we certainly look forward to having you return.
Wonderful service. Outstanding food.
Thank you very much for the 5 stars!
I booked a table for Saturday 9PM, I arrived at 9 but my table wasn't ready. So, I seated around 9:20. Not a big deal, however, everything was going fine until 10PM, when they turned the music off and started setting up the place for the next day and all waiters forgot that I was still eating. After 10 PM the service went really bad, I waited more than 15 min to order a dessert, and more than 10 to have the check. It destroyed the whole experience. I'm not planning to go back to Armani's.
We are very sorry that you experience was less than positive. We take your feed back very seriously and will reach out to you directly to have a better understanding so I may follow up with all the staff involved.
Great experience as usual, was disappointed that the filet and affogato was removed from the menu.
Chris thank you for your review.
