About Armani's

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 always does an excellent job with unhurried buy very attentive service, excellent food well presented and a very comfortable and varied ambiance. It is not inexpensive, but you do get what you pay for when you dine at Armani's.

Had not been to Armani's in a few years. It remains a nice atmosphere for dinner, food is excellent. The recipe for the lobster bisque has changed and I think I prefer the old one. I ordered the sea bass and got the Bronzino which was quite good.

We have enjoyed Armani's several times over the years and this is the first time I have written a review -- All the times before it would have been 5 stars across the board -- this time the service was disappointing. Our meal took over three hours -- no due to great lingering conversation, but because of slow and a less than endearing waiter who I had to request come to our table twice.

The gentleman at the antipasta bar was the bright light of the evening -- if you go there, don't miss that experience and great appetizer selection.

There are many great restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. What sets Armani's apart is the service. The staff is excellent! They don't hover and were always there when we needed them. Everyone was very knowledgeable about the menu offerings and gave us great information and recommendations. It's a very complicated dance for servers to be friendly, attentive, helpful, pleasant and professional without intruding on a patron's dining experience. In "fine dining" restaurants, I often feel that the servers are controlling my evening (kind of a pet peeve of mine). Our server was very professional and seemed authentically friendly. He was helpful, efficient and even funny. And all in just the right amounts. We were not rushed through dinner at all. In fact, more than once we were told to take our time to decide what we wanted. And when we did decide, he was right there to take our order. As I said, there are plenty of places where you can get a great meal (don't get me wrong... the food at Armani's was excellent!). But I would give the service at Armani's my highest possible rating. It made all the difference. My wife and I will definitely go back again!

Made reservations a couple of weeks prior, asked for window table quiet spot - for nice romantic dinner with wife prior to Christmas. When we arrived restaurant was half full. Were offered window in entrance to restaurant, heavy traffic area. Were told that's all they had in window. Complained to manager whose response was that they could not keep table empty till we arrived. So much for class - why waste time making request!
Food mediocre, wife asked for duck dish, came with noodles, not seasoned - bland. Asked for osso buco, over polenta, dry- reheated. Won't waste my time or money there again.

Had an amazing experience as always. Our service was over the top. Stephany was amazing and catered to our children ages 6 & 9. The restaurant is very elegant but yet they do not make it stuffy. We had an a amazing view to watch the airplanes take off and land. Truly a great experience for kids with a very reasonable kids menu and what better way to stay distracted than watching airplanes fly in the dark.

Didn't like new menu. Small portions. Beet green salad with walnut & limoncello dressing couldn't taste dressing. Fish/ lobster risotto the risotto was like mush. Veal with roasted vegetables had 2 small roasted tomatoes. Really the only good thing was the antipasto platter. Ambiance was great but food was meh.

Antipasto bar food was scarce and frozen when we ate it, bit into frozen shrimp and octopus. This was Armani’s last chance for us. We are so disappointed because it used to be great but it’s not anymore.

We were celebrating our two-year anniversary...having been to Armani’s, we knew to expect a fantabulous dining experience...our server, John, had been there only a short time—23 year’s—and was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, the wine list and made it an incredible dining experience...just wish you had the Caymus 2013...the 2014 was great...thank you...we’ll be back...

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.

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.
