Great place!

Love their pizza and sauce. It's a family tradition. Get there early for a table, sometimes parking is a challenge-but well worth it.

This place has been a long time family favorite...we have eaten here as children and now it is one of our family's favorite places to eat. There is something here for everyone. My husband prefers the sausage pizza while some of us like the "special". The salads with the house dressing are delicious. Many do not realize that besides tasty... More

I can remember as a kid picking up a pizza at Agatucci's and sitting with the family down by the lagoon at Glen Oaks Park on warm summers nights. After 50 years I was thrilled to see this landmark was still there. Unlike Avantis, they decided to stay with one restaurant. The night I dropped in I sat at the... More

Living in Maryland and getting back to Peoria once or twice a year, aggi's is on our must list. The "special" pizza.....can't stop eating it. Of course need a pitcher of 312 to accompany. Was there Thursday night and really enjoyed. Aggi's atmosphere... Old school and enjoyable!n

I've tasted a lot of pizzas in my life, but Agatucci's is the best! I grew up on this pizza and it is just as perfect now. I'm a simple cheese and sausage pizza eater and theirs is perfect. The crust is thin and crispy. The ambiance hasn't changed much from the 50s - if you want a fern bar,... More

Wanted something different. So called and ordered pizza to go. Pleasantly surprised at the taste and price. Ordered sausage and green pepper. Pepper was cut a little to small for my taste. Looked like spinach (lol). However, the flavor was very good and not too cheesy. Liked the paper packaging ...reminded me of ma and pop places on the corner... More

If you like thin crust pizza and a family atmosphere you will be very happy at Agatucci's. Yes the decor is very dated, the tables are close together, the parking can be a problem but Agatucci's is like going home after being away for a long time. It's comfortable. We've been going to Agatucci's for over 20 years and we... More

The everything on it pizza was good. The Sausage doesn't have much flavor. Way too many tables in there. Parking is horrible. One of the owners scowled at us when we asked not to be sat next to a big table. They were herding people in like you would in a subway train & didn't bother to think about rather... More
