Pagliai's is famous in Iowa City for great pizza. It is an Iowa City landmark and was here long beofre any pizza chains. You can watch your pizza being made in the front window.

It's an institution for good reason. Very good ingredients. Not a particularly pleasant place to eat and they have bad beer selections and serve Pepsi, yuk.

Take out is the way to go but don't do it often.....delivery would be great.

Pagliai's reputation goes back years and remains one of Iowa City's favorite pizza places. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star...there is no Parmesan cheese available to be added when eating it. I was told, "Our pizza is so good you don't need it." While that is probably true, I felt the customer should get what the customer wants.

Great thin crust pizza. Nothing extraordinary about their pizza, but just good hand tossed pizza. Make pizzas out in open in the front of you. Local hangout. Community neighborhood feel about it. Good service, very reasonable price. No reservations. No outside venue. No delivery, though they do take phone orders for pick up and they do sell fresh pizzas they freeze.

You can watch the guys flipping the pizza dough and making the pizza in the front window. It is a very homey atmosphere with the best pizza in town. No frills, and they have a small selection of wine and beer. Get the Palace Special!!
