“Busy place”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Sometimes you have to wait a short time before you are seated but the wine will flow. It's noisy and fun. Good menu with lots of salads and pastas to pick from. I bet you won't be able to eat all your dinner but save room for dessert. You could almost imagine yourself in New York.

“The bread is divine!!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

As a Victoria local I have been to Pag's dozens of times. My favorite time is lunch (try to get there just before noon when all the business people show up) and have the bottomless soup with unlimited fresh bread. I think it is about $7. Also, kids always eat free at Pag's . They have the option between a small bowl of pasta with Parmesan and butter or pasta with tomato sauce. They also get free Shirley Temple drinks as well.

“back in time!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Over rated...over priced...over cooked...... They need to review the tired menu and living on past reputation. It is monotonous and boring.

“Wonderful Food”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We hadn't been to Pagliacci's since our last time in Victoria in 2000! It didn't disappoint us! The pasta was great - it's wonderful to order a 1/2 portion and feel so very satisfied. The bread is fantastic as are the desserts. The servers are so enthusiastic and one doesn't mind being a little cramped which gives Pagliacci's that added charm. Hopefully we don't wait another 12 years to dine at Pagliacci's.

“I don't understand the popularity”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

I've been a three times. Once as a couple, once alone, once with a small group. The food was average, the service was good. The place is SO crowded I felt I was having dinner with strangers. Price very high for quality of food and atmosphere.
