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.

They could’ve done a little bit more to make our anniversary dinner more special.

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...

Jay and Suzanne...

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.

Everything was great, service, food, and drinks. We were cemebrating 15 yr wedding anniversary and enhoying the romantic ambiance until a group of 8 showed up and were extremely loud and obnoxious and ruined the mood for us and three other couples.

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.

Beautiful view good service. We have been here a few times before. We had a groupon we purchased for over $100 which was suppose to be worth $250. Very disappointing was not worth the $100 let alone $250. We did enjoy the view.

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.
