This is one of the best places I have had a meal in. The food is good, which helps, but the atmosphere is amazing. The live bands are tremendous. You may have to queue for a while but it is worth every minute. Loved it.

We stumbled across thus charming and bustling little place and while it was crowded, the food was amazing. I had the Doors of Perception and was blown away by their truffle oil cream sauce. My husband loved the lasagne. I liked the option of full...More

GO early, or be prepared to wait, BUT well worth it if you have to wait. Fresh focaccia as soon as you are seated, but don't fill up on it, too many other great dishes and soups to have with it! Love the smaller size...More

We visit Victoria often and always stop at Pagliaccis for a bottomless bowl of soup at lunch. I've never been disappointed and have tried some unusual soups over the years. This visit was no different. Awesome! Their team approach to service makes for a great...More

I revisited Pagliacci's after three years because I liked the atmosphere while visiting Canada again. The place hadn't changed one bit. The ambiance is very lively, without being crowded. The meatballs weren't to my liking however. But hey, that's taste. My girlfriends lasagne was superb...More

A surefire hit every time. A reliable standby for a great pasta meal. Seafood lasagna is my go to and my wife loves the capaletti. We get a side salad and then fight over the last pieces of bread.

Hi Alanna, I suggest a Pagliacci's salad without cheese and maple balsamic vinaigrette and some extra chick peas. Or a pasta with just tomato sauce and vegetables (not on the menu but were happy to make it). Our bread in... More
