After waiting for some time, outside, our party of 6 was finally seated. This is a great restaurant in a fairly small space, with tables close together and a high noise level. The serving staff were great and paid especial attention to my year-old grandson. I had an amazing dish with Gorgonzola ravioli. If I had not been in public,... More

Everything we tried was amazing & our group tried a little of everything. Vegetarians will have no problem finding tasty bites. The desserts were fantastic too.

Dinner at Pagliacci's is worth the wait! We stood in line for about 1/2 hour before we were seated but it is so worth it. The menu is very diverse and everything we got was delicious. It's a hopping place and everyone seems to be having a great time. The servers were attentive and friendly. Looking forward to going back!!

Stopped by to see if we could get a table. We were in luck. Had two pasta dishes, both were very well done. Came with salads. Finished with some ice cream. As always, Great food, service and dining experience.

Dined here many times, always a great meal. The non-stop bread, the salads and the great pastas just keep getting better all the time. Service is always very friendly and very efficient. Get here early as it does fill up after 5pm.

So I was told before I came to Victoria that I should check out this place Pagliacci's. I was told it's down a side street and can be hard to find and it's pretty small so you're practically sitting on top of the person next to you but that it's really good so we thought hey why not? When we... More

We go to Canada a couple times a year for taekwondo tournaments which are held in the Surrey area. Each time we go we wish we could spend some time exploring. This trip we had the opportunity because it was Spring Break. After a busy day of running around and exploring Victoria we were starving. One thing that my family... More

A local Victoria institution for many years. New York style with tight tables and a buzz. Pasta is delicious and I don't care for sweets, but they looked delicious. Great to meet a friend for lunch with a nice glass of wine..

We stood in the small entrance for almost half an hour but because the reviews raved about this place, we thought it would be worth it - it was not. The live music was good but the service was not. Our waitress was very distracted and kept forgetting to bring our wine. Finally someone else took over for her. The... More
