Been ordering pizza hear for years - never get tired of it. Crisp crust, generous fresh toppings and family operated. Been through four generations of my family - an Iowa City icon!

Pagliai's Pizza is a great place. Love the pizza. But there are two things missing. 1) a few sharp knives for those of us that like to eat our pizza with a knife and fork 2) SALAD! thanks!

This is one of my favorite spots in Iowa, especially when you are craving a nice and light, thin crust pizza. Dine in, order for carry out, or buy one of their frozen pizzas and store it for later or take it home and bake when it's convenient for you. It's pretty busy for the most part, so plan ahead!

Pagliai's is the best pizza ever, family owned and operated. The quality and taste never waver and the service is outstanding. It is always a family choice when we are together.

Pagliai's Pizza in the North end of downtown Iowa City is an old local favorite and serves the best pizza in town. The atmosphere reminds me of an old style family pizza joint where you can watch them making the dough and using real ingredients. You won't be disappointed in the food.

Pagliai's is a family tradition. It is a traditional pizza restaurant...if you are expecting anything but pizza you should make another selection. It is extremely popular and with a large party we found getting to the establishment for dinner early was advisable. One of the icons of Iowa City.

Great little pizza joint. The pizza dough is thin and toppings fresh. Love how the employees are throwing the dough in the open kitchen right up front. And the uniforms are a throwback. They also have beer and wine on the menu, which is not always the case at pizza restaurants. If you are going after a Hawkeye football game,... More

Everyone has their own individual preferences for pizza. My family has patronized Pagliai's on a weekly basis for over 50 years and we have never been disappointed in their products or their service. Fresh ingredients, flavorful sauce, but not too spicy, and thin, crisp crusts are what keep us coming back for more. Pagliai's bakes only one type of crust,... More
