This is by far, IMHO, the best pizza in Cape Girardeau. I miss the charm of the earlier years of this place back in the 80s-90s when I first came to Cape, but the pizza remains amazing! They also have pasta, a few sandwiches, and a fair selection of adult beverages as well as soda for the kids.

Pagliai's is a true destination restaurant. The pizza is wonderful and I actually crave it when I'm away from home for a while. My parents travel the world 9 months out of the year and they say it's the best pizza they've ever had. Salad bar is good, but basic...no frills. My daughter loves their spaghetti, but I wouldn't know...it's... More

The pizza place knows how to make a pizza pie! This place nailed the cheese, crust, and sauce! All were perfect. The pizza was topped well, not just thrown on the pie. The parking can be challenging. There are just a few spots in front of the building and a small parking lot off to the side with a few... More

We had our usual pizza Thursday. I had the pineapple pizza with breakfast & Canadian bacon, which by the way is delicious. Their salad bar is just right and always fresh. The beer is ice cold and the mugs are frosty. Love this place!

Just ate here last night with close friends. We had their standard special pizza. It was very good.We were hungry so we had the 18 inch. Nice location but not a lot of parking. Be prepared to park on street or a block away. Craft beers bottled and draft domestic. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Enjoyed the salad bar and Pag's special pizza. One of our favorite places to eat and you can always count on the pizza to taste great every time. It's usually busy on the weekend but worth the wait

My family and I go to Pagliai's frequently because that is our favorite. The restaurant has a nice homey atmosphere, the service is always very good even though they are usually busy. The prices might be just a little higher, but the quality of the food is so much better. Will continue to eat there.

Gluten free pizza good, sauce slightly spicy. Great service. Only open until 10:00pm on a weekend, wish they would stay open a little later. The others at our table seemed to enjoy their regular crust pizza too.

Thank Karen G
