Take out for wonderful group pizza party!

We ordered a variety of 5 pizzas for a group (20 persons) event. All were hot, tasty and right on for our crowd! Couldn't have done better!

Loved the pizza and service. I wasn't sure where I wanted to eat. Seattle has so many pizza joints. Was recommended here by the hotel staff and it did not disappoint.

Visiting UW and heard this was a good pizza place. We ordered a take-out Margherita pizza with side salad. To be fair, the Pagliacci salad was good. A large order will make 4 side servings. The pizza was tasteless with very little cheese, and what was there had no flavor. Couldn't taste the basil or tomatoes, which made me think... More

Pags is definitely the best pizza in town by far. This location is classic Pags, but it’s just not quite as good as the Broadway location. The staff are likely a little more worn out from dealing with the constant barrage of college kids and the Ave regulars (who can blame them; but it makes a difference in the service... More

Good calzones and salads and near to the U but a little high priced for the area. It has changed little in 35 years.

I lived right next to this place last year and used to frequent the location a lot when I was looking for some late night pizza. The staff is extremely friendly and the pizza is fresh and available by the slice. It's a great place to sit down, eat some pizza and relax with a beer. I highly recommend.

I met the kids & our out-of-town guest here after the babysitter took them to the Burke Museum. It met everyone's needs since you can get slices here. The pizza is reliably delicious - ditto the salads. And they've recently started making their own breadsticks, finally! Much better than their old ones. And the service was super friendly. The location... More

In fairness, Pagliacci's makes a good effort at their pizza, which was OK. Very good was their garlic bread. We fought over the last piece of garlic bread, however, we had enough pizza left over to feed us another meal. Pizza is one thing that tastes just as good the next day - hot or cold.

Everything was good, salad, pizza, service, cleanliness and decor. Wish the pie crust was more crisp but that wouldn't keep me from returning.

Stopped by for some slices, with my sons, added Pagliacci salad (my all time favorite), some sodas and beer and for a great price we had a fantastic dinner while trying to figure out the Italian posters for American movies (ok, it’s easy, really, since I speak some Italian). The pizza is always fantastic (closest thing to an Italian pizza... More
