Good food, friends and dancing

We had a fairly large group for a surprise anniversary for some friends, and we were given a private room just for us! The appetizer, calimari, was very good, and my lobster was perfect! We felt no pressure to leave for the next customers, and we stayed for hours and danced into the night... read more

Everything was amazing! The 5 cheese gnocchi was to die for, it was so creamy and decadent. Truly was a sin to eat. All of the pastas are hand made. In my opinion, any place that takes the time to do this must be something special. I would defiantly go back!

Pagelli's opened their Coconut Mall restaurant in early 2008 and it soon became one of our favorite restaurants. The inside of the restaurant is warm and inviting with a romantic ambiance. The restaurant offers a variety of entrees including some Italian specialties, grilled meats, chicken, salads, personal pizzas, and more. You can't go wrong ordering the JOJO Pollo, or a... More

We met to tell tales of our dear friend Ed who passed on too soon. We had many a wine dinner that he hosted. The wine was fine and the Hors d'oeuvres superb. Even though crowded and with a singer, we could comfortably converse.

Such a shame. The food was delicious, however our meal was ruined by the cigarette smoking chimneys that sat at the outside bar with glass doors wide open leading the smoke right into the dining area! It was disgusting!....the restaurant was a cloud of cigarette smoke. We left early, not finishing our meal because after asking the manager 3 times... More

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...
