Best old style pizza

This is an old fashion pizzeria. You can a pie, sandwiches, and a cold beer. The food is really great and very reasonable.

Locally owned. I just visited in October of 2015. The pizza is good, but not as good as I remember. It is probably still the best pizza in town, though.

I checked TripAdvisor for a place to go for a quick lunch while in Mankato for work. TripAdvisor nailed it. Pagliai's was terrific. I ordered the lunch deal, a single personal pizza with two toppings and a soft drink. Normally when you order a single, it is either a single slice or a small pan. Here you get a very... More

Paglias is by far the best pizza in Mankato and unfortunately it's not a secret. On weekends it is extremely busy so you need to give yourself a lot of time even for takeout. But, it is well worth the wait.

Only had Pagliai's pizza through their delivery service. Fast delivery and the food is incredible!! Not comparable to any other pizza joint in town. Pagliai's is far superior and old school in their style.

Not a chain but an independant operation with pizza as the focus. No frills, just great food. The pizza is imcomparable to anything else locally or regionally.

Anywhere we travel we compare to Pagliai's but have never found an equal. Never have to add extra cheese. Always very generous with toppings

When visiting the area we stopped here for dinner with family. When we arrived there was quite a crowd of diners waiting to be seated. That's usually a good sign. It didn't take long and we were seated in a booth. My sister and her husband had been here before so they knew they wanted pizza. It was our first... More
