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.

Armani's Ratings and Reviews
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with friends. We were seated quickly, a beautiful table, lovely linens. Service was very good, water refreshed quietly, nice space of time between courses.
Food was very good, served hot, portions just a bit small, nice variety of meat, fish, and vegetables . Accommodating to vegans.
Would definitely return.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and our evening at Armani's. Khalid was very attentive and made sure we had great information about the menu. This was our 10 wedding anniversary, and we had the Ossobuco and Branzino special which were both cooked perfectly. Definitely plan to return more often.
Tempo of 5-course dinner from Living Social special was right on target and a great value. We ordered the wine package to accompany each course (about $30 pp) and they were world-class complements. The small plates were full of flavor, delicious risotto was a standout, lots of truffle nuance, fun charcuterie selection, delicious almond tart dessert. Exceeded my expectations.
Long-time fan is changing tune...as a long time fan especially for special occasion dinners, I would say not as enthralled anymore. The ambiance is always awesome and menu choice can be inspired. What has changed is the level of attentiveness and personal service. Food quality has grown mainstream.
When blue cheese stuffed olives in a martini are the pre-packaged variety not only do martini lovers know it, it is a foreshadowing of the lack of passion to come.
Even the once mighty antipasto misto selection has relegated itself a victim to overnight stays in the fridge to the point of flavor and texture loss. This is juxtaposed with the cost structure that has you spending $40 for the smallest shareable version for an appetizer.
Entrees while inspired, are executed in a fashion that feels more cruise ship or convention catered. Vegetables and garnishes are over done and blanched of flavor and texture. Sauces, reductions and other flavor enhancers are mild in concentration of flavor.
The touted Bison ribeye, while flavorful, was presented in such a way as a ribeye at an east coast diner.
It has come off of my first choice to celebrate a special occasion. With the lack of passion in the bar and antipasto kitchen, not sure it works for sunset cocktails either.
It may be relegated to business client and celebratory show off events where cocktail volume hides the chinks in the armor.
We have been here several times before and always had a good experience. This time our service was awful. The waitress paid little to no attention to us. It took almost 15 min for us to get our drinks....it was a Tuesday and not busy. We ordered our appetizer for 4 people and it came 3 min before our dinners. When I asked her about it thinking she may have forgotten she condescendingly told me that apps are served after the salads. We walked outside on the patio to sit for a few and have our drinks while deciding whethere we wanted dessert and she had our table cleaned off and brought us our check. I had 3 people with me whom had never been and that was their first impression. Not good :(
I have always wanted to try Armani's but given the price I wanted to save going for a special occasion. So, my 18 year anniversary was the perfect excuse. The food was just ok. I was very dissapointed given the price. The view is awesome but the quality of the food doesn't match the view. I am a foodie and a very good cook myself so it is hard to please me. But if you are going to charge the high prices and hire a professional chef I should be wowed. Just ok.
View is great as is the service, but ultimately I go out to eat for the food and here Armani’s was not great. I started with an uninspired veal cannelloni which was followed up by a field green salad with a sonewhat bitter aftertaste. My frutti di mare featured perfectly cooked seafood with a few pieces of spaghetti and a watery sauce. Ok, but nothing I’d order again. My wife’s Caeser salad had huge hunks of bread and large pieces of Romaine, not a bad salad but hard to eat and heavy on bread. She ordered the veal chop as the server reminded us they are known for their veal. Well cooked but very fatty and a bit tough.
It is a beautiful view and an elegant place to dine, if the food ever matches the view it will be great, until then save your money.
Armanis has been a fine dining establishment for 25 plus years, Had not been there in a while-very pricey so be prepared to spend $100 per person. Kind of disappointed in the quality of the misto appetizer bar- the shrimp were not good at all. Also the espresso was starbucks which is not what you expect at high end italian. Entrees were good but dont expect value- a pasta bolognese is $30. View and ambiance excellent, service good but probably would not go back as there are more authentic family owned options for Northern Italian cuisine.
My husband celebrated our anniversary with a wonderful dinner at Armani's. The service was exceptional, and the food was delectable. We had a beautiful waterfront view. This will be our new go to spot for future special occasions!
