Fantastic homestyle Italian food

Homemade pasta and breads, yes please! This is a nondescript restaurant that flourishes solely on its write-home-about food. I've lived in Connecticut for 5 years and I've never heard of it until my boyfriend took me there for dinner. Their bread is wonderfully salty and soft. The pasta is... read more

For years this place was where we would go on special occasions. For the past few yrs it has been very disappointing. We got veal parm and thank goodness for the sauce, otherwise the veal had no taste and was greasy. The quality of the food has gone down. It's not worth driving 30miles. They make their own pasta but... More

Every time I go by Pagliacci's Restaurant it's crowded. It's been in business for as long as I can remember. However, both recent trips to the restaurant have proved to be a disappointment. The first time I ordered their Chicken Parmesan thinking it's an Italian restaurant and I should be safe. Wrong! Even I could have made it better. The... More

I recently returned here after quite a few years. My friend order a pretty plain dish, just pasta and sauce. When it came, it looked like pasta soup! He was lucky to have 15 strands of spaghetti in the bowl with what seemed like a whole jar of sauce. He didn't want to say anything b

Pagliacci's offers a great Italian menu with a lot of variety. It is family and budget friendly and the portions are huge to share or bring home leftovers. The cheese raviolis are my favorite and typically my go to. They make excellent homemade sauces. Would highly recommend.

Came here with an old work colleague who is related to the restaurant owner. We sat down and were served by friendly staff. The place smelled great with the aroma of bread. I ordered the Chicken Marsala with a salad and fettuccine on the side. The portions we got were HUGE, and I could not finish my meal. pricing was... More

I have been to Pagliaccis many times over the years but hadn't in awhile(at least a year ago) so we decided to head over there for an early dinner with my significant other and his Dad. We were seated very quickly and the server was extremely cordial and knew her job and the menu well. We started with the Fried... More

I take my staff of nine to lunch for Christmas and this is where we've gone for the last 3 years. Love the homemade pasta here. I recommend the spaghetti as I find the other choices too thick for my taste. House meat sauce with a melt-in-your-mouth sausage to go on top. Everyone likes it here and the menu has... More

We all know that this is a very popular restaurant and has been for years. Pretty hard to find anything wrong here even w/the service. But my dish which I always order and love, the Veal, Meatball, and Sausage Parmigiana not up to standards this time. The sauce was way over cooked and tasted old and had no delightful, light...

We actually got a recommendation from a clerk in a local store. He sent us to the right place. After hours on a plane, and really not wanting anything but a good meal and to relax, Pagliacci's really fit the bill. The food was great. We split an entree of meatballs (excellent) and penne. The meatballs were so good, and... More
