A friend of mine told me to give this place a try and said there pizza was the best in town. I was very skeptical, but did try their pizza. They were right, best pizza in town and prices are pretty reasonable as well.

We have never been disappointed when eating at Pagliai's Pizza; one of the best pizza restaurants in town. They also serve cheese bread, spaghetti and poor boy sandwiches. The atmosphere is retro 70's and the pizza makers and waitresses work really hard to give you a great pizza at a great price along with super service! We frequent Pagliai's Pizza... More

The quality is consistent. Never had a bad pizza. Love the spaghetti too. Regular serving is enough to take home half and the salad is fresh. Servers are friendly and helpful. The Sunday special, 25 cent pitcher of beer with large pizza is a favorite.

If you can imagine the type of pizza joint I'm talking about, Pagliai's is the place (minus the Pacman). It's the kind of... More

Our favorite pizza place in Mankato. Our kids love it. The Maverick is a brilliant combo of meat and cheese, and the garlic bread with cheese is the best in town.

I've only ordered here a couple times but when I do it is very good. I've also had the spaghetti and it is pretty tasty as well.
