We boated to Cape Harbor and intended to go to another one of the other restaurants there for breakfast but saw a sign that Pignoli now served breakfast. A previous experience there on their deck several years ago was a major disappointment. This time it was a hot day and we opted to sit inside, where the a/c was just minimal and the lighting, very dark. I kept thinking I still had my sunglasses on. The service was very quick, although for a breakfast menu, they did not have regular size bagels. My partner and I had the egg, tomato and cheese on a croissant, It was very tasty. The kids were satisfied with their fare.

We were seated immediately. Very casual atmosphere & friendly staff! Menu had a nice variety without being overwhelming. Everything is made from scratch! The Texan and La Parisian burgers were great -- cooked exactly as ordered! Might have to try the British burger next time. The crab cakes the best we've ever tasted -- including the coconut rice and grilled vegetable blend! Plenty of food but had to get desserts to go -- again great assortment that you won't find anywhere else! The chef took the extra time to visit our table and make sure everything was to our liking. Can't wait to visit Jack and Sam again soon... maybe for their Sunday brunch or enjoy their live music on the patio.

We were seated right away with an amazing view of the marina. Our drink orders were slow coming, and the omelet station was 6 bodies deep, oddly enough the chef was one handed. She had a brace on her right hand, and was struggling to keep up. With that said... The omelet was awesome! The food overall was delicious, but based on the price we most likely only return on special occasions.

There is something special about a restaurant on the water. This gem is not only located in a beautiful setting, overlooking a colorful marina, it also has great food and service. We chose Pignoli based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and because it is one of the few pet friendly restaurants in Cape Coral. We took our Belgian Melenois and enjoyed the superb buffet brunch they serve on a Sunday, while listening to live music. What a beautiful serene setting. The staff were very friendly and brought our "Fido" his own bowl of ice water. We were very surprised to find an up market restaurant like this in Cape Coral. We can definitely recommend this spot for Sunday Brunch.

We went to Pignoli for breakfast on a hot Saturday morning following a visit to the very disappointing Farmer's Market held on the harbour. We sat out on the harbour terrace with agreat view of the moorings watching the select few enoying their pride and joys.

The place isn't big but had a surprisingly large breakfast menu to select from. We plumpt for the all you can eat american breakfast buffet. The choice was somewhat limited but what we had was fresh and tasty which is a credit to the staff as they weren't that busy and the food on the servery hadn't been left to stew.

Staff were very friendly and the service very good overall.
