This is our go-to restaurant whenever we are craving Italian or pizza. We have never had a bad meal and the portion sizes are huge! Very nice to leave with leftovers for another night's dinner. Their pasta sauces are all home made and the food, whatever you order, is just delicious. The bread and garlic bread always come to the... More

Italian food is like the ocean, big, wet, and frankly, they look the same. But this restaurant has a secret ingredient. They make the pasta fresh! The location is very convenient and the parking was fine. The design is fresh and not overly trying to look like an Italian restaurant so you can just enjoy. The salad and drinks were... More

Traditional classic Italian cuisine is the heart of Pagliacci's. That may be a reason why we have been here for over 60 years, Dennis over 30 years here. If there is anything we can do to make your experience a 4 or 5 star let us know. All feedback is welcomed. Thank you for your visit and your review. More

Went for dinner with elderly mom and aunt-we all had the baked stuffed shrimp special-we were all pleased--my husband had the seafood fra diavlo, and he loved it. He had plenty left over for dinner the next night. Restaurant is very clean, staff is friendly and available, love love love their (home-baked, I believe) garlic and Italian breads warm from...

We had a really fun experience plus a very good dinner - plus got a wonderful recommendation for some of the tastiest and best priced Cab Sauvignon we had in a long time. Very clean facility, home made pasta, nice atmosphere, better level of Italian meals - this place is a winner!!!!

We live right in town and never come in here. People from out of town talk about Pagliacci's like it's the best place on earth. I just don't get it. We met our family here for dinner the other night and we figured it had been a few years so why not check it out again. We walk in and... More

Pagliacci's is one of the best restaurants in the area. People are friendly, efficient, and make you feel like family. The food is great, they have all different kinds of delicious pizza and so much more. Calzones, chicken parmigiana, ravioli's.. all great! But they also have philly steak sandwiches and other light meals of great variety. There's also a gluten... More

We get to eat here now only about once a year when visiting Connecticut and the place hasn't changed a bit. Good thing since we like it so much! Prices are reasonable and my favorite "combination parmigiana" is still on the menu. It give us enough food to take home for another night too. The mussels were good too. We... More

I would give this zero stars if I could. I had lasagna that was bad. The meat tasted funny. Husband ordered mussels and he got physically ill... Will not return again.

I’m deeply sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your lasagna and mussels at Pagliacci's. This is highly uncharacteristic, as we pride ourselves on high quality meats and daily fresh seafood and fish. I do hope you do not judge us by this one experience. Feel free to reach out to me directly if there is anything we... More
