The good and bad

We ordered our dinner and then I think I overheard our server going over specials with an adjacent table. Not sure, but it would have been nice to have been told if there were specials that evening. Caesar salad was mediocre but the mushroom ravioli was great. Lobster crab cake very tasty and... read more

I like the quiet atmosphere of this restaurant. It was very relaxing. I had a chicken spinach salad with a really excellent vinaigrette dressing. The house bread is excellent. Portions are adequate and the house Chardonnay is very nice. Service was very attentive.

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
