Very small place, no reservations, only beer and wine, loved by the locals. Except for the chicken parm, everybody liked their meals. Found the chicken thin and too much breaded. Nice menu and they have specials so it is worth another try.

Everything we had was delicious and seemed to have ben freshly prepared, including "from scratch" pasta. My husband was delighted with his Cesear salad, that included the anchovies that are often omitted. The tasty minestrone was so hearty, that I didn't leave much room for my entree. Oh,... and the freshly baked bread...so good. For our entrees, I had the... More

We love the lasagna so much that it's been years since we've ordered anything else! Everything coming out of the kitchen looks & smells delicious. It's a tiny dining room, but the portions are large.

Heard such great things about this place and decided to try it. Wanted a vegetarian pizza and with their base price of a cheese pizza I would have had to add $1.99 for each item selected. There is no way they were going to put on $1.99 worth of green pepper, mushrooms, etc. Went with the open faced Reuben and... More

I have lived near Briandi's for over a year. I went there as locals talk about it being the best Italian food in town. I love pizza so I gave it a shot. The first time I went about a year ago the pizza was $15 for a small pepperoni WAY over priced even though it is bigger than most... More

Briandi's is a small Italian restaurant on Tamiami Trail south. It is very small so you may have to wait for a table. Good early bird specials must order by 5:30. I had the chicken Parmigiana and it was delicious.

Our waitress Julie was very high strung and rattled, didnt appear to be "in the right state of mind" , lol , People were complaining around us, and you could see when the kitchen door swung open, the staff looked dirty and just messy back there, I wouldnt recommend.

This restaurant took us by surprise. It appeared to be another Italian restaurant in a city of Italian Restaurants. It was a pleasant surprise and we feel it is one of the best Italian restaurants in which we have eaten.. my wife had an Italian Seafood dinner and I had Spaghetti and meatballs. We returned and we both had chicken... More
