My wife and I were staying close by, so we decided to try Pagelli's. We started with the fried artichoke and zucchini appetizer. It was a little mushy but tasted good. My wife enjoyed her Lasagna, and I had the Scallops and spinach, which were delicious but the presentation wasn't great. The service was good and the interior of the... More

They say that the first step towards recovery is to admit your misgivings. My first misgiving was joining friends for dinner at this restaurant. Everything was horrible. From the bread (that we needed to ask for over and over), terrible wine list, frozen products, I mean everything was frozen. Had a calamari appetizer that was just plain aweful, stuffed mushrooms...

We dined at this restaurant this evening based on a recommendation from a friend. The appetizer was somewhat good. The mahi mahi was tough, which was disappointing. The beer glass smelled. Disappointing!

Living in SW FL for years we love to find the delish and beautiful places and visit off season and at lunch when not so jam packed! We go to Pagellis often and the food is OUTSTANDING but prefer in the off season when it is not so busy. The warm bread and tasty olive oil, great crispy calamari and... More

My family and I have lived in SW Florida for quite a while and I'm surprised it's taken us this long to visit Pagelli's. We attended a graduation party there and had a chance to sample several dishes. For starters, the fried calamari was delicious. Perfectly cooked. I had the chicken parmesean and was blown away! Everyone else loved their... More

We ate here wi four persons, two had pizza, being napoli and margerita. They were tasteless accoording to the four of us, depsote the fresh tomatoes. One had pasta bolognese which was good. The veal parmesan with spaghetti pomodori was so so. More taste would have been nicer. There are probably much better places to eat than this..

The food and atmosphere here are great. Traditional Italian food with nightly entertainment. Make sure to make a reservation because this place was packed. Ate their five times and great each time. Great service as well; very nice waiter.

On a warm Sunday evening in March we went with friends to Pagelli's Cucina, it was packed. Shortly after we were seated and placed our drink order the entertainment started, the singer was great. He could sing any song requesrted and he played to the audience. The food was good, but the entertainment made the night. This is a place... More
