A couple of friends looking for a quick bite but not fast food or chain. We'd been to Pagliacci's before with our significant others but instead of opting for their well known homemade pasta we went the grinder route. Good choice on our part! The grinders were basically 1/2 loaves of bread stuffed and toasted. My grilled chicken with hot... More

Thank you so much for critiquing our grinders. We try and give our customers grinders that are stuffed with meats, cheeses and vegetable, with a definite possibility of leftovers. We value customers like you and thank you for taking the time to give us such a great review. Hope to see you and your friends soon!!! More

We ordered 3 different meals at 7 on a Sunday and they were out of all of them.

We take these matters very seriously, customer satisfaction is of upmost importance to us at Pagliacci's. However, we have no record or recollection of a customer experience fitting your exact story and description of events. We were also unable to verify anything about your identity from your account, which appears to have just been created by a previous employee for... More

I can't say enough about Pagliacci's. It's casual, has delicious food and wine, always runs tasty specials, stands up on its own if you're ordering pizza, serves great desserts.... what's not to like? Our favorites are the cheese ravioli, chicken parmigiana, broccoli rabe and sausage, etc. (there are many more). Highly recommend.

I've been in the restaurant business most of my life, in the front of the house and in the kitchen. I know the business. The biggest letdown of our favorite restaurants is consistency. Pagliacci's is one of the most consistent, delicious, home style Italian restaurants in the area. Unpretentious comfort food at its best. It's a wonderful menu complimented with... More

Connecticut enjoys a rich selection of modestly-priced Italian restaurants serving wonderful food. Pagliacci's, unfortunately, is not one of them. Being somewhat local to the restaurant, we have eaten at Pagliacci's quite a few times over the last two decades or so. Most of the time, the offerings have been acceptable, Our most recent experiences, however, were not enjoyable. Overall, we... More

This place needs no positive feedback from the locals because it is an excellent Italian restaurant with authentic Italian food including homemade pasta. The portions are ample - most people take home the leftovers - the prices are extremely reasonable and the service is always top notch! If you never tried this place, put it on your list!
