Excellent thin crust pizza and a local tradition for many decades. One of our favorite places in Charleston.

If you want pizza and if you're willing to take a walk to get it (at least to your car!) skip the delivery and go to Pagliai's. (They deliver, too, but you won't feel guilty about the pizza if you get SOME exercise!) They have the best pizza in town. The spaghetti is pretty good,, too, but I don't eat... More

Pagliai's pizza is terrific. Also their spaghetti is delicious. Servers are friendly, pleasant, efficient, and always ready to go the extra mile to take care of their customers.

Nothing like paying $44.00 for two med pizzas. Never again. Nothing special on them either. I can other pizza restuants and get the same for half the price. Not happy at all

Visited on a Saturday at 7:30PM. There were only a couple of tables open. Very pleasant, busy, family atmosphere. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. The whole pizza making process is in the open, visible to the dining room and to the public through large picture windows. I like that. It implies they are proud of how they do things.... More

I used to enjoy this place when I was much younger. Had been 20 years since I went the last time though. Was really excited to go and take my family.so we went on a Saturday evening. We entered and found the place was busy but not packed. No line waiting to be seated. We took one of about six... More

Found this restaurant via tripadvisor while passing through Charleston...a good find. We ordered the thin crust vegetarian pizza with crispy crust. Perfect! However, the green salad was nothing more than a bagged iceberg lettuce...old and dry...brown edges...with a small packet of dressing and two packets of crackers. Not appealing. They should get fresh lettuce and serve it chilled and charge... More

Local pizza place that has a few unique special pizzas. If you enjoy sausage pizza, you definitely need to order the House Special. Menu does include a few basic, pasta choices. They are only open for dinner service.
