This is one of the cleanest restaurants we have ever visited. We ordered the supreme pizza and were shocked at the actual thickness of this pizza. My wife and I had to doggy bag some of it home. The pizza is the best in Cape. The only disadvantage is the small selection of Beers and wines. Other than that a... More

If u ask a native from Cape Girardeau where's the best pizza, 9 out of 10 will say Pagliai's. Fresh ingredients, family atmosphere & reasonable. They have take-out or dine in. Any visitors in town will always make their way there to eat. Yes we have Imo's, Dominos, Papa John's & others, but nothing compares to Pagliai's.

A classy establishment that is guaranteed to serve great pizza no matter the day or time. Great for a family meal, a date for two, or a night with friends. The waiters, waitresses, and chefs are always willing to accommodate your every need. A must visit while in Cape Girardeau!!!

We enjoyed everything we ate at Pagliai's. Their crust is great, with a couple different options available. Our pizza was so cheesy with the perfect amount of toppings. We loved the salad bar too. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Was visiting town and thought I check to see what changed. I saw Pagliai's. Good news some things never change. Went in Restaurant decor has changed from 20+ years, but very clean and modern. But still has excellent pizza. Still a GREAT place to eat . Can't wait to come back

If you want authentic Italian style , hand tossed , not processed, then this is the place. It is so much better than chain store pizza. It was run by the same people for as long as I can remember. You will never get a bad pizza. It's the only place I go.

Pagliai's was a favorite when I was in high school MANY years back, and they are still a favorite of mine now. It's been a great pleasure to take my children and even grandchildren to Pagliai's. Their pizzas are great and unique, but make sure you take a look at their pastas as well. Parking is limited, and they can... More

Love the everything pizza. It has black and green olives as well as 8 other toppings. If you need to get it to go - just order the half bake and finish the rest at home. Great pie!
