    Excellent service. Excellent salad. Chef special was good. Salmon entrée also good. Sides available for a price. Dinner was pricey for informal dining. Definitely family restaurant with nice view of pool and beach. Nothing special as far as atmosphere goes. You’re paying for a/c with beach view.

    Good food but not great. Good service. Very difficult to find. No sign on the street. It’s actually part of a resort which had live beach music at the pool. The condos were named Pink something.

    Overall a good value. Donavan is a knowledgeable and attentive server. Would have preferred open air. Noise level at one table was unpleasant. Good choice of apps, entrees were were all good to excellent. Pasta dishes were generous. Drinks were well poured. Wine "specials" were also good but not special

    Meal started with delicious home baked bread , olive oil balsamic with Parmesan for dipping .. recommend putting dipping dish on another plate as it spilled over easily. Nice wine selection. Shrimp dish is wonderful. We shared a salad which was romantic. My husband had grouper and nicely prepared. We took a desserts to go key lime and chocolate cakes and shared together under the stars.

    Had two nice dinners, the special chicken piccata with mushroom risotto, and the veal parm. The food was good for a decent Italian restaurant, not gourmet, but served hot and presented nicely. Good bread. The desserts were served in somewhat awkward-to-eat-from square shot glasses. Tasty selections, hard to eat. The biggest downside was the bright lighting and hard floor that did nothing to deflect sound. Didn't look like as nice a restaurant as the food warranted.

    Again went to Rae's because it is one of 2 restaurants at Pink Shell resort. First time, our entree came on a bed of pasta. This time, since they changed the menu, lol, we would have had to pay $6.00 extra for pasta. Thought it was expensive first time! Nothing extra with entree...no salad, just the piece of meat or fish. Our service was great first time, but not 2nd visit.

    We had a group of 19 people and Anthony (manager) was so gracious with accommodating all of us. We ordered off a pre fixe menu which he supplied ahead of time so the chef could be better prepared for our large group and everything came out perfect. We appreciated the hospitality and enjoyed great food, drinks, and service. Will definitely eat here again.

    We were disappointed. We were expecting the dinner restaurant at the Pink Shell to be a little bit classier than it was. Not sure if it was a Covid thing - but instead of white cloth tablecloths, they were paper. My pasta dish was grossly over-sauced - could not even eat it. My husband ordered the shrimp and that was really good - though the potatoes that came with it were barely warm. Fine dining on Fort Myers beach is pretty non-existent, Rae's does not help!

    Food was quite good. We had Rae's special chicken with spaghetti and broccolini which would have benefitted from less cheese and more flavor from spices or the wine sauce. The Ciopinno was good and spicy. The grilled shrimp were excellent. Lloyd was a fun waiter. The ambience is a bit confusing--it doesn't know if it wants to be a bit more fine dining or casual (hence, the waiter writing his name on the paper tablecloth!). The service is slow as so many of the reviews say. But for dinner it's okay to sit and relax. Overall, I would return but it would not be my first choice.
