There was a total of 18 of us that met for dinner, drinks and conversation. We made a reservation and they accommodated our loud and crazy group by pre-setting up tables outside on the deck overlooking the boats. The waitress and wait staff quickly jumped into gear and got drinks out to us as we waited for the stragglers to come along. They allowed us to do separate checks (which in this day and age is hard to find!) the food was delicious! I ordered the Buffalo Mac & Cheese! And of course a couple of glasses of wine. I was very impressed that our waitress memorized and repeatedly used our names during service! Made the evening a wonderful experience! Everything was top notch. Only complaints were 1) it was bloody hot out (96) and we were very all sweating and 2) the sun was going down and shining right in our eyes. Now, what could Pignoli's do about that? Maybe a couple of fans... But the waitress kept coming out and moving the umbrellas to block the sun. The wind moved them as fast as she fixed them. But her persistence was impressive! Above and beyond!!!!

Sunday Jazz brunch was very nice. We went at breakfast time so we enjoyed the egg station and Belgian waffles. There were biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, breakfast potatoes, bagels, pastries, cheeses, fruit... It was quite a spread. Meal also included orange juice, lemonade or coffee.

There was also a roast beef carving station with a pork roast as well, along with lasagna. Next time we will go closer to lunch to try those items. Everything was delicious.

The staff was friendly, kept the drinks filled and held the door open as you walk from the indoor spread to sit outside on the water and enjoy the view.

I moved to Cape Coral a year ago and this is our go-to place if we want to overlook the boats and water and eat good food in a small restaurant with great service.

Seriously, one of the best burgers I've ever had in my life - THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS, I SAID, "IN MY LIFE!!" - was from this place. I've had breakfast here a few times and it's always been very good. However, I never have tried the breakfast buffet.

The service is always excellent. The waitresses are very friendly and competent and will remember you if you return.

If you are visiting Cape Harbor, I recommend Pignoli on the Harbour.

Ate here as it was rated highly on the list of local places to dine, but came away disappointed due to the food being at best ok, and at worst bland. The mahi with rice and (cold) vegetables was tasteless and therefore over priced at $18. The clam linguine was nothing special. The server was more than attentive however, and there was a great atmosphere dining outside with a duo singing favourites from motown to modern stuff.
