Took my wife here for Valentines Day. They had a limited menu special with choice of appetizer or salad, choice of entree and choice of desert for $55 per person. The food was excellent. I got a filet mignon that was cooked perfectly as ordered - medium rare. Not sure how the regular menu is but we enjoyed the valentines special.

I appreciate the free valet, we were quickly seated, the waiter was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The food was served at a good pace and was beautifully presented. We went on Valentine's Day with a generous menu of options that were preselected and built into the $55 per person price of appetizer, entree and dessert.

We were so happy to find this gem for the holiday! The service was amazing and the meal was delightful. We expected a limited menu for Christmas, but we were pleasantly surprised at the number of fabulous choices. Everyone tried something different, and it was all great!

Highlights for appetizers was the Smokey Brie, baked in a puff pastry. It was warm, buttery, flavorful velvet, to DIE for!

For the main meal, the scallops were seared to perfection, revealing the delectable sweetness only found in high quality, fresh seafood. Equally stunning was the filet minion, cooked to order by a chef with obvious experience! It was accompanied with caramelized onions and smooth mashed potatoes...real comfort food that even “Mom” would envy!

Finally, desert was equally enjoyed. The creme brûlée had a satisfying crispy crunch of sugar on top of the surprising ginger-bread flavored cream. the peppermint cheesecake was smooth and full of holiday cheer (though it was NOT traditional cheesecake).

All in all, it was a terrific experience that we would certainly consider repeating in years to come. Though we did find the lack of holiday music a bit sad, still, we were able to enjoy lively, uninterrupted conversation. The staff was attentive, warm and polite, and there was no rush towards the end. We were able to savor the moment and appreciate everything and everyone!

I visted Pelagio Trattoria for Lunch. When we arrived we were greeted and got to choose where we wanted to sit. Restaurant decor is Italian modern. Great view of outside garden. Pizza margarita was great! Pasta dish, so-so. When we announced it was my
birthday, the waiter gave me a fresh berry desert. We got very special attention and left
feeling like we made a terrific choice. Starbucks coffee in the lobby, beautiful Christmas
decorations everywhere. Go sit in the outside garden... you will want to move in. Located
in the Rennissance Marriott in Tampa. Jim Walter Boulevard. Great fun.

great time and great food. It was just a bit noisy because of a Tampa Bay Bucs game and the opposing team was there in force but it was all in good fun and didn't distract from the professional staff and fantastic food.

For the price of the meal, it was way too noisy; however, excellent food and great service.

Surprisingly good for a hotel restaurant. Very nice Italian menu with a couple of middle eastern apps thrown in because why? That having been said, the room is attractive, the service excellent and the food much better than you'd expect. Apps sampled were bruschetta, eggplant rolatini and octopus, all delicious. A kale and butternut squash salad was excellent and entrees of grouper and veal saltimbocca were solid. Desserts were very good and the wine list, while short on length and depth was serviceable. Overall, a very nice dining experience and a good value.

The restaurant has an upscale beautiful look. Leo, our server, was exceptional and helpful with choices. The braised lamb shank with saffron risotto was delicious. The frutti di mare risotto had good flavor, but was spicy, which wasn't noted in the description, and had so much cheese that it was very thick, not the usual creaminess expected. I selected a bottle of wine, but they were out of it and promptly offered an alternative at the same price and quite good. We will definitely come back!

Another wonderful meal. The chef continues to innovate and the menu changes often.
The Burrata Caprese was wonderful, as was the Bolognese, although the addition of grape tomato halves made it a bit too sweet. The update Caesar salad was a wonderful presentation, but I miss the Grilled, deconstructed Caesar. The special of the day, salmon and sea scallops over herb Alfredo was excellent. The scallops in particular were seared perfectly.

Service was good at first but a big table arrived just after we received our food. My daughter had a problem with her order and no one came around to check on us until everyone else at the table was finished. Even then, it wasn't our server but just someone clearing plates. No one came to check if our meals were ok or replenish our drinks. If you go for brunch, I don't suggest the Krispy Kreme donut French toast. It is very mushy in the centre. The consistency tastes like it is under cooked. When we mentioned that to the waitress she responded saying that a lot of people complained about the texture. That would have been nice to know when we ordered. I paid $18 for a meal she took one bite of.

Our waiter accurately described the ingredients of each dish, how it was cooked, in a friendly and non aggressive way. We had a delightful time. As long as you realize that this is an expensive dinner, you will have a wonderful time.
