The best!

I don't live in Mankato any longer but visit Pagliai's every time I come back. My favorite is Canadian Bacon & Sauerkraut but it's all fabulous!

This place has been around forever for a reason, it is the best pizza in Mankato! You may have to wait for a table during peak times, go early or on weekdays. I have been going here for over 30 years and never had a bad experience once. The cheesy garlic bread is good too.

I went to college in Mankato and have tons of great memories. A few included having pizza (when we all had enough money) at Pagliai's Pizza. The place has not changed at all and the pizza............is amazing. We took home the leftovers and warmed up, it still has that great smell and taste!!! YUM.

They have a great lunch special. A small one topping pizza and pop for around 6 bucks. Love that you can see them making your pizza. The staff are friendly. If your in a rush I would call ahead it gets really busy during lunch time. There is not a lot of seating available.

First off, the atmosphere and service are fine, though some of the workers seem like they were left in someone's trunk in a poorly ventilated area for too long. I've eaten many pizzas throughout Minnesota and the East Coast, and I can safely say this place is average to a pizza connoisseur and overrated by the locals. There's not much... More

This is just excellent straight up pizza. By far the best pizza in Mankato. The lunch special is one of the best deals in Mankato.

This is a bonafide pizza place. Good selection of nicely done pizza and beers. The pizzas are made in an open kitchen area, which is tidy and clean. One way to judge a restaurant is by the restrooms and these were very clean, which tells us the rest of the facility is maintained. We tried "the works" pizza and the... More
