Down home, no frills Italian restaurant

Just good food and good service at this no pretentions restaurant. We had a delicious antipasto followed by the house special: "pinwheels," which are thin bread dough wrapped around either cheese and flavorful sausage, cheese and spinach, or cheese and veggies and baked--delicious!

Can't beat the price of the daily lunch special. 2 small slices and a drink for a great price. The pizza is good and flavorful. Get there early on busy days or you may wait on a table. I will go back for lunch.

I lived in Jersey, & N.Y. and tasted the best pizzas and missed GOOD pizza. Pagano's is from where I lived (what exit) and I'm in heaven again!

Atmosphere is old Italian from New Jersey. We have been there many times. it is one of our favorite places. Whether you love a platter of mussels with linguini or lasagna it's a hit.

Been here a few times now nothing has changed. The workers are to many and still its a cluster . Management should visit the real resteraunts and see the difference. You could drink a picture of beer before you get a food order in or see your waitress again . Yes you can tell they are a New Jersey business... More

We originally checked out Pagano's after seeing a Groupon for two drinks, an appetizer and two entrees. The food is absolutely delicious. I grew up with real Italian cooking, so it is rare to find an Italian restaurant that can measure up; but Pagano's is true Italian cooking. The portions are well sized with plenty to take home; you also... More

Good place to go for pizza. They let you split specialty pizzas half and half. Philly pizza was especially good. Frequented by locals and reasonable prices. Good, friendly service. Would definitely go back and recommend to others.

This is a great place to eat! Casual dining with friendly employees and excellent food. The pizza is awesome! The menu is large and offers many classic Italian entrees from stuffed shells, calzone, greek salads and Stromboli, spaghetti with homemade sauce that is yummy to name just a few. The prices are very reasonable and you get a lot of... More

Was told the pizza was really good. It would have been very good if it had more sauce on it. Rather on the dry side and not as much flavor because of that. Had to send my chianti back--it was terrible. No depth or flavor. Prices on pizza were average but other meals were very reasonably priced. Business was good... More
