Best pizza in Cape Grardeau. Note that they are closed on Mondays. Will be a bit of a wait for dinner but worth it. Pizzas are fantastic. Service is great. They have some good craft beers in bottles. Highly recommended.

Best pizza we've ever had south of St Louis. True Chicago style crisp thin crust (not the bread-like doughy crust you usually find down south). So happy to finally find a real pizzeria in Cape.

Awesome pizza, very fresh, lots of toppings. Can be crowded, but never too long of a wait and staff is very friendly.

Pagliai's is a home town pizza place and they are wonderful! Many choices including wheat crust which is great! Quick service and you can even grab a beer with your pizza. If your not a huge pizza fan their sandwiches are tasty too!

Paglia's is by far the best pizza in Cape Girardeau and different than any other pizza in town. Loaded with toppings but still perfectly crisp.

Pagliai's is a conveniently located, cozy little pizza place near the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. Even have gluten-free pizza!
