My boyfriend and I were here last weekend for a nice, quiet relaxing dinner with excellent food and service - We got it all!!! Although we do dine here during season and love sitting outside and enjoying the different nights of entertainment and dancing, off season is perfect for a lovely evening for two. We had the borsillas to start... More

Went there with 5 friends and it was nothing short of embaressing. Waitress hurried us to order because she had "an 18 top coming in. "When the food did arrive it was poor at best, the tomato sauce tasted like it was out of a can as did the sauce that came with the mushroom ravioli. When we complained to... More

I expected great things but I was sadly disappointed. I ordered Lasagna and it was adequate. However, my dinner companion ordered Eggplant and it was disgusting. My other companion ordered Spaghetti Bolognese and it too was just adequate. We ordered cannolis for dessert and there was no ricotta cheese in them. In fact, they tasted like they will filled with... More

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...

Pagelli’s does not have stuffed mushrooms on our menu, and we are a “cook from scratch” kitchen, so I am not sure which items you may have had that were frozen. Please contact me at your earliest convenience so that I may find out more about your poor experience, I was here the evening of your review and believed that... More

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
