They have great NY style pizza at a reasonable price. It has been in business in Iowa City for decades and it is fun to watch the chefs toss the dough!
My children and I had dinner there recently. The food was really good but there was not a lot of selection in toppings. We don't eat pork so it left us with a limited choice. I think that the pizza was over priced though.
They do one thing and they do it extremely well. If you like a good oven backed, thin crust pizza you have to stop here. The pizza is made fresh right behind the counter. Just watching the make the pizza is impressive, but the taste is what sends it home. Thin, crisp, hot, and every topping you could ever want.... More
I have been frequenting Pagliai's for over twenty years. It is by far the best pizza in Iowa City and surrounding area. No fancy stuff here. Just the finest ingredients and a commitment to old school ('50's) quality. The pizza makers work in full sight in the front window. Beer and sodas accompany. I call it "Angel Pizza". You will...

This place does't have a bunch of frills, or wild things on pizza, or different crusts. They just make an old school, thin crust, fresh ingrediant pizza , as well as anyone can. tey have a nice dining room and a great viewing area to watch make their pies! You'll eat fast and very well, our favorite pizza in town!

The crust is unusual- not completely thin but with a crunchy enough bottom that it almost seems like a thin crust but there's more to it than the average thin crust. Toppings were delicious. The sauce has a unique flavor... More
How did this happen? I grew up in this area. My home church is three blocks away from Pagliai's. I used to go here after youth group meetings. This is where I learned what REAL pizzeria pizza is like. And I have yet to write a review???? :P Well, I'll fix that glaring mistake NOW. Nothing has changed at Pagliai's... More
I'm originally from Iowa City and now live in West Des Moines. I think this is one of the best pizza places in Iowa City can't go wrong. If you are looking for a place to eat and like pizza should consider this place. Very easy to find..
Have been eating Pagliai's for as long as I can remember. Never disappoints. Their family takes pride in their name and restaurant and it is reflected by what you experience here, whether you eat in or carry out.
My wife and I have gone there several times with some friends after Iowa wrestling meets. Pizza is out of this world. Made in front of you, fresh and hot out of the oven. Best pizza I have ever had. It is a hard place to find for me since I am not very familiar with Iowa City, but definitely... More
