I went to school in Iowa City in the early 80's. Pags was always our go to at 9:30pm after a night at the library. Man the place is still the same! That is a huge compliment!

Overall it is a nice place to eat pizza... More

This is a great place to go for pizza, very charming place. My wifes parents live in Iowa City and we visit Pagliai's almost every time we visit them. We even bring a cooler to take home there frozen ones. This is a must place to go for great pizza, you won't be disappointed.

The pizza is good. My only complaint would be that the menu is limited to just pizza. No appetizers, breadsticks, or desserts. A nice locally owned pizza place, though.

The pizza was good, not to thick of a crust with a yummy red sauce and plenty of options for toppings. The service was friendly and fast and the restaurant was clean and upbeat. They don't serve alcohol I just beer on the menu and I believe wine coolers, which is probably why the restaurant wasn't out of control like... More
