Worth the short wait and met nice folks in line. Once seated the service, food and wine were perfect! If you are wondering whether you should go, stop it! Just go. You will enjoy.

I wanted to try a new place for brunch. Drove to the 2 newer breakfast/brunch places to find long line-ups and limited parking. One of the group suggested Pagliacci's. We are at Pagliacci's often for supper and once in a while for lunch and love it. Not too sure about brunch though. With some trepidation we went. It was crowded... More

I arrived about 4:45 but only had to wait about 10 minutes. I was seated with no menu and it took several minutes before anyone notice that. Server was nice, but very rushed. He did make sure, however, that the kitchen honored my dietary requests which were GF and DF. The energy was very happy which made it VERY loud.... More

We come here for date night once a month -- such a great place. We always get the Sophia pasta since it is to die for! The breadsticks are one of our faves, too. Get here early though since this place fills up quick and can be crowded. Amazing atmosphere!

It's been quite a while, so we had to see if the soup was still good. It was. My wife and I had different soups . Both were great and the focaccia bread was even better than we remembered. We were not disappointed. I keep expecting things to have deteriorated. After all it has been decades since we first went,... More

I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. The line and wait went quickly. And that wait was well forgotten when the food came. The pasta dishes that came to our table were delicious. Not to miss.

Came here after reading TripAdvisor reviews. Came early and were seated right away. Watched it fill within the hour. We were not disappointed! From our appetizer through the pasta to the most decadent chocolate cheesecake for dessert.. an outstanding dinner . The wait staff are busy but attentive. A wonderful evening indeed!

We arrived a little later than the dinner crowd, so we didn't have to wait too long. Other times when we walked by, the line was long. It was hard to decide what to order as they had a lot of unique sounding dishes--it wasn't spaghetti, pizza, lasagna...I had a delicious pasta with a coconut curry sauce--rather Thai inspired. It...
