We had dinner at Pelagia trattoria, The name is misleading expectations. We tried it there as we were staying at the Renessaince and the name of the restaurant got our attention..... We had a Risotto di Mare and a tagliatelle alla bolognese, both tested horrible. The server Leo was very kind, but that doesn't help to change the test of... More

My aunt and I flew into Tampa for a quick overnight trip. We stayed at the beautiful Renaissance Plaza hotel and lunched at the Pelagia restaurant. We had the luxury of having Leo as our server. He was the friendliest waiter I've ever had! He recommended wonderful entrees, was very attentive (but not too attentive), had friendly chit-chat and was... More

This restaurant is located in the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel. It is not an elegant restaurant, but it is comfortable, the wait staff is excellent, and the food preparation is very tasty. The menu is not extensive, but it has something for every palate from sandwiches, to salads, to Italian dishes, to meat and fish entrees. There is a... More

We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel and this restaurant is attached. I wanted ham & eggs and they made it to order and I was able to make it part of the buffet ($18) with all the drinks, (oj, tea, coffee) , fruit etc. that you want. We took tea, coffee and banana to go. I thought it was convenient,... More

We ate the breakfast buffet both mornings of our stay at the Renaissance hotel. It was good and good for the price. There is also a menu to order from as well. A little more variety would be nice too. Overall it was good and hot.

We were staying at the Renaissance Hotel and decided to have breakfast in the restaurant. The decor is interesting with colorful glass light fixtures reminecent of Venice. Very Italian and pretty. So far so good. It took no less than 20 minutes to get coffee and water. I forgot something in the room and my husband ordered. When I got... More

I had a business breakfast at Pelagia this morning. I thought the menu offered a very good range of choices, including eggs prepared in different ways, biscuits with gravy, steel cut oats, and (if you can imagine) Godiva chocolate pancakes with white chocolate mousse! It didn't appeal to me, but I am sure it would to many. I had the... More

I have dined at this place twice. The food is excellent. One must not miss the Brussel Sprouts! Both times the restaurant was very quiet. There are not many diners, which I find curious as the food and the staff ( Ronnie) are wonderful. People do not know what they are missing! If I were a guest at the hotel,... More
