In anticipation of Blizzard Eugene I wanted a long ride, sun in my face and a favorite meal. So, I went to Pagliacci's and had a great lunch of Chicken Rice Soup, Chicken Marsala with roasted potatoes and devine bread basket . Yum! Now I'm ready to be house bound and snowed in.

A couple of friends looking for a quick bite but not fast food or chain. We'd been to Pagliacci's before with our significant others but instead of opting for their well known homemade pasta we went the grinder route. Good choice on our part! The grinders were basically 1/2 loaves of bread stuffed and toasted. My grilled chicken with hot... More

We ordered 3 different meals at 7 on a Sunday and they were out of all of them.

I can't say enough about Pagliacci's. It's casual, has delicious food and wine, always runs tasty specials, stands up on its own if you're ordering pizza, serves great desserts.... what's not to like? Our favorites are the cheese ravioli, chicken parmigiana, broccoli rabe and sausage, etc. (there are many more). Highly recommend.

I've been in the restaurant business most of my life, in the front of the house and in the kitchen. I know the business. The biggest letdown of our favorite restaurants is consistency. Pagliacci's is one of the most consistent, delicious, home style Italian restaurants in the area. Unpretentious comfort food at its best. It's a wonderful menu complimented with... More
