After reading about how good the pizza was, we went out of our way to find it. Be aware that the road is closed to it and you have to park somewhere and walk to it. The pizza was delicious. My only complaint was the sauce was just a bit spicier than I like, but might be perfect for others.... More

If you want the most wonderful crisp, yet chewy, flavorful pizza EVER, try this place! Ignore that the inside looks dive-y--it is clean and you come for the food, not the decor. We had the deep-dish pizza and it came loaded with fresh mozzarella and toppings. Many pizza places have pizzas that look good, but you pick it up and... More

Everyone was recommending this place...and it more than met it's reputation. There were 9 of us in the group (incl one high chair). All of us thoroughly enjoyed the pizza. We had one of the specialty pizzas that included pepperoni and sausage and a Taco pizza. With the hot sauce, etc. it was all delicious! Wait staff got us our... More

Pagliai's is easily one of the best pizza places around!!!!!!!!!!!!! jah does not know his head from his you know what. Pagliai's is not supposed to be a fancy place, it has always had kind of a Bohemian look to it. It is the food, not the décor, that people come for.

The restaurant doesn't appear to have been updated since it opened in 1969. There's paneling on the walls, filthy ceilings, beer posters, no decor whatsoever. It was such a disappointment. Perhaps their take-out business is so good that no money is put into dining in. We ordered a pizza which was mediocre at best. We had a couple pieces and... More

Got a Large Pizza with a coupon for a cheap price. We didn't stay long since it was take-out but, it did seem like a traditional pizza shop with the big brick oven.

Great pizza and great prices. There is a reason they have been in Mankato for so long. Glad I was introduced by a native Mankato resident upon moving to Mankato from the Twin Cities for college.

Every time I travel to Mankato I always make a point to stop at Paglias's! It is frankly great pizza and I always make a point when I can to expose my friends to this pizza.
