The atmosphere at Pagliai's is like walking back in time to the 70's, which is a favorite place for our family. The pizza is excellent. The toppings and cheese are great. The prices are average, but nothing about Pagliai's is average. I would recommend it to everyone. We especially like the thin-crust pizza.

We went here for a late lunch. I had a small veggie pizza, and I almost ate the entire thing, it was SO GOOD! The rest of my group had the Baha Chicken pizza, and they loved it, too. Service was good and fast. I can't wait to go back!!

We are from Milwaukee and were staying in Mankato for a tennis tournament. We found Pagliai's on Trip Advisor and with good reviews tried them for a late dinner. We were not disappointed. We will be back next year!

This wasn't our first trip here and definitely won't be our last. This time we had the 18" Classic pizza with sausage, mushrooms, and black olives. It comes loaded with lots of cheese. They do really well with their crust and toppings. It has a wonderful flavor and comes to your table really quick. A friend of our ordered the... More

We were lucky to get one of the last two tables available right away and enjoyed smelling the pizza cooking. We waited a while - they had lots of carry out orders. The pizza was worth the wait. Good service. Would go back again.

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.

The first thing I do when I arrive in any town is look for that hole-in-the-wall, owner-operated pizza joint that has been around for 40 years and still has an operational Pacman console in the game room. 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
