The food is likely more authentic than some places, but the decor definitely needs an update. It's very old world and a bit run down. There are some good menu selections, though.

This used to be a landmark Denver restaurant for good reason. Not so anymore. The food is blah - there are many more Italian restaurants with better food at cheaper prices - and the service is surly. Don't waste your time or money.

'Just heard that Pagliacci's is closing after so many good years. Friends introduced us to this cute place and we really enjoyed the food. The minestrone soup was fantastic. Is there a cookbook with recipes available for fans of this Italian fare?

Tradition, great homemade food and lovely atmosphere. very sad to see that it is closing its doors- hopefully will not become a gawdy high rise in what used to be a great community.

Step back in time and enjoy real Italian food. The spagetti is not only like Grandma used to make - she's probably in the kitchen cooking it....

My MIL has talked up this place for years and we finally arranged a family dinner here to celebrate a birthday. The place was very crowded which surprised me. Its not well set up for all the noise and the staff seemed overworked and behind. The food was average: greasy fried foods, boring salads and pastas. I dont see what... More

This place has gone downhill. 20 years ago when I first went here the food, atmosphere and waiters/waitresses were great. 20 years later and this place has changed for the worst. The food was just simply not that good. I could have cooked the pasta and sauce better myself, why pay $30+ a dish for it when you can do... More

I grew up around there. Not a good neighborhood at thetime. Now it's up a coming. I was so excited to go there on my 16th birthday with my boyfriend! We have been married 40 years now. We went recently and it is simply great food and service and atmosphere.

Wish I could be more of a regular here, but everytime we make the trip here for a dinner, we are never disappointed in the service and food.
