Favorite food and meeting place of Niceville/Valparaiso Lions 1st & 3rd Monday 5:30pm
Excellent food! Where Niceville/Valparaiso Lions meet 1st & 3rd Mondays 5:30pm
Solid menu. Had $4 crown for happy hour with super generous pours. The service and atmosphere had a small town bar feel, but the food punched above it's weight class. One of the best non-seafood restaurants in Niceville.
Pretty solid little Italian place. I'm a fan of it! I wouldn't say it's absolutely amazing, but it's definitely better than I thought it would be.
Fabulous Italian food. Great portions.
Our first time visiting and the food is absolutely delicious. I ordered the Alfredo but the lovely lady Misunderstood and gave me chicken Parmesan instead but they were nice enough to correct the issue and even allowed me to keep the food. The gentleman was lovely also...
BUT it took forever to get our checks and boxes. What irritated me the most is that plenty of the girls walked by us numerous times and didn’t check on us at all and we were ready to go! Luckily a lovely girl saw and immediately came over and got everything sorted.. but I will say the lack of customer service damped the experience. MY ADVICE? DO NOT SIT BY THE ENTRANCE DOOR... you might be looked over 1000 times ?????
Love the food!
Great place. We ordered the mussels, crab dip, lasagna and a pizza. Great food with plenty leftover. No picture of the mussels because we ate them too fast. Good portions and we will be back
It was our first time there, but certainly will not be our last. The food and service were outstanding!!! The quality of the food was awesome!! We felt like we were eating in Italy!!!
Food is great. Happy Pepito's was over crowded on Cinco de Mayo! Great food. Spectacular service. Perfect for last meal of a busy weekend!!
Very good meal, friendly atmosphere and wonderful service. Stuffed mushrooms, Lasagna, Jack Daniels burger, and colossal meatball are highly recommended.
The restaurant itself was nice. The waitress was new but did a good job. Only thing she got wrong was my drink (ended up with water instead of the tea I asked for) I ordered the shrimp linguine, got confused when the waitress asked if I wanted red or white. I said white thinking Alfredo sauce. Apparently its cooked in white or red wine sauce. The noodles were cooked perfectly but there was no taste. Very bland. The shrimp were good but they were just shrimp. I'm sure I'll go back I'll just be more specific next time.
Had a great pizza there just recently. Staff was friendly and patrons were receptive (to a new face) and polite. Atmosphere is comfortable and cool for families. We sat at the bar but there's plenty of room and tv's everywhere.
Drop in. You'll be happy you did!
We used to go to "the Schnitzel Lodge" but stuff and food aren't good there anymore. The Tisano's , on the other hands, has delicious food and professional staff. Great to have it in our neighborhood!
Good was excellent. Our waitress was very nice and fast, very clean.
Four of us went to the restaurant we each ordered a different Pizza, and we all really enjoyed what we had and took home a lot of pizza for meals the next day
Great service, great atmosphere and the food is outstanding. The lasagna was the best I've had
Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants. My favorite pizza of all time is made here. It's the California pizza and I HIGHLY recommend it. The pizza is so good you don't mind paying more. The staff and the owners are always polite and orders are done quickly.
Had dinner with my daughter at Tisano's last night and Victoria served us. We had lasagne, pork spring rolls and shrimp Alfredo, and everything was fabulous! And their bread is to die for, smothered in butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Yummy! Victoria took great care of us, making suggestions that were spot-on for food and drinks. Can't wait to go back!
Palermo pizza was excellent. The bruschetta appetizer was not quite what we expected; slightly disappointing. The cheese ravioli with bolognese was strong in Italian sausage but had good flavor. Service was attentive and quick. Will return.
Went on a Sunday after church. It was pretty empty but the waitress was friendly and attentive. They have a great selection and the food was very good with good portions size. Give them a try if you are in the area and hungry for Italian.
Pizza was fresh and very good. White pizza with chicken and all kinds of vegatables is a good choice. I did not have it but the person I was with goes here often for the lasagna which he loves.
Excellent Italian food! Everything I have tried so far has been delicious. Be sure to try their monthly drink concoctions!
Nice casual italian place. Good pizza and staple Italian dishes. Food portions are good and good service. Worth the visit.
First time and I know it won't be my last. The lasagna was the best I've ever had. The service was excellent and the prices we're very reasonable. Serving size was almost right -- a little more than I could eat. If you like Italian, don't miss this place!
We love Tisanos for their burgers. Not sure what they do to them but the flavor is like what they used to taste like "back in the day" when you only did burgers on charcoal grills. So juicy and flavorful! Love love love the burgers!
Excellent Italian food! Everything I have tried so far has been delicious.
Good food, sports centered Italian place. Staff is nice.
The food is a little pricey but excellent. The portions are huge. I had lasagna and it would have easily fed me three dinners. It is fantastic. My only complaints are that it is very noisy and cold. If you go there, take a coat.
Great food, drinks and people
We wanted really good Italian food and a friend suggested Tisano’s Garlic Grill. We were not disappointed! The food is by far some of the BEST Italian food we have ever had! We went in with a group of 8 people and every one of us thought it was delicious! We will definitely go back!
Food and service excellent
Really good Italian restaurant in Niceville. I've now been here twice and had good experiences both times. The first time we ate there and I had the lasagna which was very good. The second time we got takeout pizza and that was very good as well. They definitely use a lot of garlic, which I have no complaints about. The staff is super friendly and the seating is plentiful. I'll definitely be back to try more things off the menu.
Real good Alfredo sauce and the house dressing is great. Definitely would eat here whenever I am in the area.
Food is EXCELLENT!!! Prices are average and staff was friendly.
Lasagna and pizza s very tasty. Wasn't crowded around 7:30 PM and had live music. Will be back when we come back to the beach!!!
We frequently go through Niceville around dinner time on the way back from boating. We’ve tried several restaurants that were ok, some were very disappointing and one was pretty bad. We spotted Tisano’s after leaving Winn Dixie and gave it a try. Fabulous! The stuffed mushrooms were some of the best ever. Garlic is the star in their dishes! Service was great, and price was right. We’ll be back.
Our first visit! So delicious and excellent service!
Food great, service great and prices are in line with area. What else could you ask for? I rarely give 5 stars.
Best lasagna I’ve had in many years
The food is amazing....all of it! Great pizza, salads, steaks, fettuccine alfredo is my favorite and I am very, very particular when it comes to that!
Excellent service and delicious food.
Great place for salads and pizza. Make sure you check the specials board too
Love this Italian restaurant. If you love pizza you've got to try their mestlvers pizza.
Awesome food and drinks, great atmosphere and tons of friendly people
Had a great day Saturday. Can't wait to try the food.
1st time here, so I can't give 5 stars yet. I had the Luigi's Classic Pizza. It was very good, but the crust edges we're just a little too done for my taste. Server was very pleasant and attentive. I can't wait to come back to try one of the entrees.
This was the 1st time visiting this restaurant after my mother and father recommended it. I really enjoyed my meal which was the special for today. The reason it did not give 5 stars is because the tables make the restaurant crowded and the lighting is very dark. Without music there it was still hard to hear the conversation. I will visit this place again.
Great fresh entries, large portions and great customer service, couldnt ask for anything better....
Great Lasagna and Gulf Shrimp! Victoria checked on us frequently and gave great service. If we lived here we'd be back.
Excellent food and lots of it!
We enjoyed several meals at Tisano's while vacationing in the area. Excellent food and service. We had take out and it was so enjoyable we decided to enjoy another meal on their outdoor patio area. They were dog friendly and our waitress was excellent. Would highly recommend anyone looking for great Italian cuisine to dine here.
We had their gluten-free lasagna - and it is fantastic!!! Best I’ve ever had!! You must try it!!!
Excellent service and yummy fish and chips.
Not normally what I would order at an Italian restaurant but I'm glad I did.
Plus, the chocolate chip cannoli was a great treat.
Definitely will be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Tisano's. We shared the crab stuffed mushrooms with garlic and Parmesan sauce. I had salmon with gnocchi; my husband had chicken Parmesan with an Alfredo sauce; and my daughter had the lasagna. No regrets! We came at the end of what was probably a very busy day, but our waitress, April, was delightful and gave us good service. If you are craving creamy, rich Italian food this is the place!
Just stopped in after church for lunch. First time here and enjoyed there Polermo pizza. Fantastic service and food.
Great food. Good service. Family friendly. No wait to get in on a Sunday evening. Out pizza order came out incorrect, but the server realized it without us needing to say anything. She let us keep the incorrect pizza and then brought us the correct one in a to-go box at no extra charge. Both were delicious. Definitely recommend this place. Only 4 stars because when it came time to leave it got very busy and we had to sit for about 15 minutes with our hands in our laps just waiting on the check.
Great food, the Lasagna is really good. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Overall a great experience for the mone.
Had Luigi's Pizza for lunch,and it was wonderful.First time I've been here and will be back
absolutely the best place to go to with several choices they do it again and again absolute perfection with several dishes to choose from definitely got to go there and experience the good tasty food they have to offer
Love the pizza.
The best food in Niceville!
Home town local feel!
Great food, great staff, great atmosphere!
The stuffed mushrooms were delicious and the sauce they were served in was even better. My husband enjoyed his Bolognese dish and my shrimp linguine was very good. The salad was fresh and the garlic bread was also good. Only down fall was we were too full to try dessert. We will visit again soon !
Lasagna was the best, husband had the fried shrimp and said it was delicious lightly breaded. Anxious to return!
Really delicious great find in Niceville! The food was great and our party ordered a variety of foods to try. The pizza was crisped to perfection, the lasagna was amazing and the lobster stuffed pasta was decadent. Definately a great place to eat. The service was good and the only constructive critisim I can give is I ordered the Tisanos Salad , and I really wanted a bigger serving! It was soooo good.
Prime rib was excellent! Highly recommend eating here!
This is a great little Italian place in Niceville! The menu is not extensive but the items they offer are delicious. We've had the Luigi pizza, chicken parmesan and linguini with meatballs. All delicious! We've only been here for dinner and our kids enjoy it every time. We always have leftovers due to the huge portions. Makes a great lunch the next day. Very friendly staff. Just don't expect super fast service. Be patient. It's worth it.

Amazing Italian food. Wonderful crab-stuffed mushrooms. Delicious fish and chips. Outstanding chicken parmigiana.
It was really nice to find a great restaurant that offers good food and great drinks at a good price. The pizzas are amazing, the lasagna is too notch, and the lobster stuffed pasta is divine.
My husband and I and many of our friends love the food here! It's become our go-to place and have always had excellent food and service. Give it a try, if you haven't already.
Went during the early dinner time. Wasn't too busy and had a really pleasant waitress. Options were good and the food came out fast. They had fresh mussels for their appetizer special and they were very good! I had the cheese tortellini which was also very good. Definitely the best I've had around here. Portions were also very large. Really had a great experience. Food was a little on the pricey side though, but for me it was worth it.
If your looking for great authentic italian food this is the place. Best pizza in pan handle and good prices as well. Nice bar and brand nee building. You should check it out.
Everything I have ordered from this place has been absolute perfection! Even my picky kids love the food here.
I love their pizza! The bartenders are fabulous, they will experiment with cocktails, and make the flavor you are craving! Neighborhood atmosphere
As the Yelp rating guide says, :" I'm a fan". This s a casual Italian restaurant. I've eaten here several times and I look forward to my next visit. I have had: the Luigi Pizza minus the ham (twice) and loved it; the fish and chips (twice), also great; Manicotti with Bolognese sauce and Bruchetta, both very good.The only thing I tried that I wouldn't order again was a Shrimp dish, as the shrimp were slightly overcooked and not very flavorful. But there is plenty to choose from and it's affordable. I'm half Sicilian and like my own tomato sauce, so for me to like the sauce here is high praise.
Hubby & I went there last night, had heard mixed things about it since its opening. We were really impressed, had a California Pizza, it was great, garlic oil, avocado , feta and almonds, tomatoes, sounds a bit weird but great. Service was awesome from our good friend April, ask for her section, shes awesome. Will go back again soon and try something else. Glad to know we have some other Niceville spots!
The tuna dip and fried pita chips are delicious. Have not had a bad meal here yet! Theirs is some of the best pizza in the area. The shrimp tortellini is amazing.
Tisano's is tucked back away from the street, but once you get to it, you'll always want to remember where it is and head back again and again. The bar area has plenty of high tops and TVs to watch the games and then a dining area for larger parties and individual tables.
There are blackboard specials every night, but their regular menu is full of tasty options. My recommendations are the lasagna and any of the pizzas. The lasagna is flavorful and not overwhelming with the amount of sauce (which is fantastic, by the way), but you can actually taste the individual flavors and although thick with ingredients, it didn't leave me feeling heavy. It comes with salad and bread and is a perfect meal, one I would order again and again.
You can't go wrong with any of the pizzas, so it's hard to recommend any one kind. Get a few and share to try a little bit of everything. I also am a fan of the bruschetta, which thankfully comes out on crostini that makes it easy to bite into. Have you ever noticed with bruschetta, the bread is either too soggy or so hard, it breaks into pieces? Not at Tisano's - they've got it just right. Make it a must stop if you're in the area and a go-to place if you are a local.
Food is great, service isn't that great. It's a new restaurant so service can be improved upon over time.
Great pizza!! Fresh ingredients and authentic flavor. Thanks!
Amazing food, great staff and good atmosphere.....
Their pizza is great! Modified California/bruschettea pizzas are awesome. The atmosphere is so-so, being a little dimly lit. Other than that, it's worth one or two tries at least for the average pizza (or Italian food) lover.
Excellent pizza, we had the Luigi's Special, and the hot wings. Plenty of 'toppings' on pizza, and cheesy, to boot. The wings, tho slightly small, were also very good; tart and tangy and not overly hot, with very tasty amount of vinegary bite on the tongue....and the beer was Cold! Happy hour time when we were there, and the clientele were pleasant with good and friendly attitudes, etc... Four stars due small size wings, and to give incentive to improve to five stars, etc. Two big guys ate plenty, had several beers, and we got out for under $32.00. Know the family and their resturant business for many, many years. This new resturant should be a hit, and I look forward to pleasurable and enjoyable dining with them for the years to come!

My family and I truly appreciated the kind wonderful and great service. Awesome atmosphere to experience excellent food period. Come enjoy the beautiful people...
Delicious food. Kitchen was a little backed up but bar tender was on it. Owner or manager ( the one guy there working) walked around seeing how the guests were doing and offered bread.
Service was great, the waitress we had served with a great attitude and positive energy. ..the food in the pasta dishes we had were a bit lacking in flavor, and style, for being an Italian spot, For example the shrimp really were not suckulant there were quit small, and more iron tasting. we were a bit disappointed in not seeing garlic knots on the menu, however the pizza was top knotch. Flavorfull, and tasty ingredients..
Had the stuffed mushrooms and chicken parm. Both were excellent. Great house dressing. The glass the beer came in was extremely cold and frosty. Loved it.
Tried the lasagna, very good. Lots of meat and sauce was very tasty. Service was prompt and kind. Good for a good casual meal.
Not on the menu, but the BEST calzone/stromboli I've found in all of Florida!
Finally tried this relatively new Italian restaurant out in Niceville with some friends today. The location is hidden away and not easily seen from the main highway here but I'm so glad we tried it out. Fresh Italian food that is full of flavor, great value, and service that is second to none!!
If you're looking for a new local favorite in Niceville this is the place, lunch specials that are generous for $9.95. Plenty of options to keep you returning time and time again.
I had the blackened Mahi Mahi lunch basket and would recommend. The fries were similar to the fries you find at Checkers (which I LOVE) and the Mahi was a perfect size. It included coleslaw, but I didn't try it, I don't really like coleslaw. My friend tried and they said it was pretty good, tasted fresh.
I also tried a slice of pizza and I must say it was quite good, a different flavor to the bread that I could tell was homemade. I would also recommend it!!
You must give this place a try, amazing value, locals love it here, and I plan on coming back!!
We all ordered pizzas. Delicious! Especially the seafood pizza. And very generous sized glasses of wine.
Go for the pizza but if it's a busy night it may be a long wait which is too bad....but they did give us a free appetizer to appease us whole we waited. Also had the clams and linguine...I love clams and garlic and this came with lots of both. The table service could be better is my only other comment.
First time Friday night. Place was packed. Ran into some friends and sat with them at the packed bar. The wait staff was great. One of our friends had the spaghetti and said it was incredible. We decided on a simple bacon and pepperoni pizza. It was absolutely great! It was so good we decided to try a variation again. So happy to see it!
Tisano's Garlic Grill is the new location for Tisa's. Had a few minute wait because they were busy on a Wednesday night. Service was fast and courteous. We tried the pizza and a house salad. Pizza was great - quality has not changed, beer was cold. We'll be back.
Great food, fresh. Very good! We had fried oysters, pizza, beer-battered fish, and the meatball sub. Will definitely be back. Only downside is they have Pepsi instead of Coke products.
Excellent pizza! Yum!! We've eaten here a couple of times. Pizza amazing. Service friendly. Prices reasonable.
