Had dinner here a few weeks back. The servers were friendly and quick. The drinks were nice. The main course was also very nice. Only drawback to this place is its small and crowded and quite noisy. If you can handle that then you will...More

This meal put a complete damper on our career celebrations. Our server didn't pay attention to us, told us false information so we would order more, and food was disappointing. Server said she was going to bring us bread three times over (we didn't pester...More

I love this restaurant and have to stop in whenever I find myself in Victoria. The bread alone is enough to make me want to eat here each time. Their pastas never disappoint and the salad is also very good. It’s a fun cozy atmosphere...More

Great selection of pastas, sandwiches, soups etc. The food was excellent. Everyone really enjoyed the varied meals we had. You have to go early before the lunch rush. No reservations so people just wait in line if you don’t go early. Takes a bit of...More

A local favourite for my friends in Victoria. We enjoyed a delicious lunch during a recent visit. The soups are plentiful, the burger was great, the cheesecake and flourless cake are calling me back.

On Thursday, Nov 2, 2017, 4 of us came to Pags for dinner. We have been coming to Pags since the restaurant opened, always loving it. Unfortunately, this past dinner was disappointing. My mother had "I'll Have What She's Having", and pumpkin pie for dessert....More

We popped in for lunch: busy beehive of activity with a steady stream of people coming in and servers zipping about getting people seated, getting orders, bringing food, clearing for the next customer but all very efficiently and very warmly accommodating. Clearly the locals know...More

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

In all the years I have been going to Pag's they have never taken reservations. 50 people would almost take over the entire place. Very tight sitting but comfortable. The menu hasn't really changed in years - and why... More
