My husband and I visited Pagelli's on my recent birthday with several friends. The food was excellent and the entertainment was great. The service was wonderful. I danced to Motown and rock and roll classics. It was the best birthday I have had in year!!!

My family LOVES dining at Pagelli's when visiting Florida! We love the reasonably priced food and food choices. We love sitting outside overlooking the fountain and board walk and listening to the live entertainment when available (we have also sat inside and enjoy the atmosphere there). Great to go with a family or as a couple. We had a wonderful... More

Couldn't have been more pleased with everything. Service was very personable, food was outstanding (and I am very particular about Italian cuisine), and the suroundings were pleasant with unaccustomed low noise level for a Florida restaurant.

We had a table for 8. Got seated right away (it was pretty empty). Nothing was wrong. Nothing was great. Nothing I would return for. We are Sicilian so expectations at an Italian restaurant may be high. Reading the menu was interesting. I think it was written by a Spanish speaking person. Some words were not Italian ("llas" is a... More

We had dinner here on Sat night. I was totally impressed that the Chef listed his email address on the check. I have never seen that. I did email him about our food experience, yet have had no reply 5 days later. Odd. I will share the email at the end of the review. Service was fair at best. Our... More

We met with fellow friends from New England as we were yearning for some good Italian food. The woman who took our reservation earlier in the day offered seating either indoors or outdoors. When told we wanted indoors, she also wanted us to know that if weather predictions were true, the outdoor entertainment would be moved indoors. When we arrived,... More

The ambiance is nice Mediterranean setting. Disappointed with several things. The servers seem to be unhappy to be working or unhappy with the tourists that come to visit kind of grumpy. Now the food the appetizers tasted very good and were well prepared. The main course well that is another story for me. Had a shrimp scallop pasta. Scallops contained... More
