Title says it all! Hard to explain. Just did not feel comfortable. The table had pizza,Caesarsalad,beet salad etc and no one said wow this is good. Service was ok. Pricing typical for the location. Coconut Point has difficulty obtaining a good food fare. I have difficulty determing why. Typical co located restaurants like Olive Garden is generally busy.

We have been coming here for five seasons and have seen this restaurant consistently go down hill. Last Monday was no exception. The food quality was poor especially related to the price they charge. I had a $30 veal chop and it was the first time I had a veal chop that had almost as much fat as meat. My... More

We Thoroughly enjoyed dining here. The eggplant parmigiana was delicious and linguine cooked just right. The waitress was very helpful in helping us with our selections. The music was a nice added touch. We sat in a booth and found it very romantic. A very pleasant experience.

My favorite thing about this restaurant is the patio seating. The patio is surrounded by large plants and a view of the water with lights strung above. There was a musician playing a nice selection of songs for the over 50's crowd. The music was pleasant, but a little too loud. It was hard to carry on a conversation at... More

I know you go to an Italian restaurant for great Italian food, but Pagelli's has always been famous for outdoor music and dancing too. They have had to cut back on the size of their outdoor entertainment due to a sports bar next-door. It has totally changed the ambience on the outside for fun evenings. Food was good, drinks were...

We have eaten at Pagelli's over the years, but they have upgraded the menu. Absolutely perfect. I had the Veal Parm which is now made with a bone-in veal chop. Tender, well cooked and juicy..... One of the best i have had. There are only 3 restaurants that I know of that use a Veal Chop (bone-in) for their Parm.... More

We sat outside a couple of tables from the entertainment of Manny T...who was terrific. On one song we thought he was Neil Diamond. The... More

My party of 7 dined outside at night in late December and were pleasantly surprised by the new menu. Everyone was pleased with their choice. (5 different items) and the service was prompt and efficient. We all had a very nice evening and will return soon.

We went there expecting an Italian meal but had an experience. We went to the outside seating with two hour entertainment on Sunday night. The performer was Broadway quality and after wowing the crowd, sat down with us for a long time to discuss whatever. He was very good! Te menu also was creative and had a wonderful presentation. I...
