Pagliai's Pizza is a great stop for a meal or take-out. The Wednesday night special is spaghetti with bread and a salad for about $5. Plenty of money left for beer and whatever you want. The house dressing is great, too. This is a family business, faithful to Charleston for decades. The wait staff are students who can have other... More

My family and I went a few nights ago, and the food was amazing. Our waitress on the other hand was terrible. No smile, no thank you, no customer service skills what so ever.

We usually do take out. We love the thin crust pizzas the best. We are snow birds so we spend the winter in Florida. We cannot find a pizza place there that comes close to comparing to the pizza at this restaurant.

Wonderful pizza, always busy. People move away but when they came back to visit they always have to have Pagliai's before they leave.

Superb pizza. I have been here just about every week for decades. The pizza is really great. Try the house special or Pagliais special. I have never been disappointed with one of their pies.
