Very good pizza in a historical and familiar location! We always feel it is a pleasure eating at Pagliai's Pizza!

Best place to go in Iowa City fo pizza. We usually order carry out. The Palace Special is the best. Very close to campus and downtown. It is a hit with all ages.

Classic Pizza place. We love the Pizza there. Sometine it can be crowded, but it is worth the wait, or you can order to go. Location is good.

This is our son's favorite pizza place! If we are even close, he wants to be able to time it to get a Sausage Pizza from Pagliai's! It is not a huge place (often we get it to go) but have enjoyed several family meals there. This is as close to authentic East Coast Pizza as you can get in... More

A & A Paglial's Pizza comes the closest to the pizza I grew up with on the East coast. The owners and staff are very friendly. They aim to please the customer and they do

Nice restaurant for pizza, but there is nothing else on the menu...not even a side salad. Nothing while you wait. Only standard pizzas, standard toppings, and only thin crust. But the pizza is freshly made and tastes great. The restaurant has a lot of booth seating and is very clean. We'd definitely come back, but probably for takeout.

We liked the pizza. Freshly prepared and served hot. The pizza choices were the classic popular choices. Nothing too creative. The restaurant was clean and the cooks were dressed well. I like the theme where the restaurant showcases the food prep professionals. You can see them through the glass outside the restaurant. Cool theme. The wait staff service could have... More

My spouse and I went to college at Eastern Illinois University where Pagliai's Pizza is THE pizza of choice. This Pagliai's looks just like it's twin - maybe just a tad smaller, but the inside is set up exactly the same way. We ordered a medium cheese pizza, because that is what we always ordered as poor college kids. The... More
