We actually drive from the Twin Cities back to Mankato to eat at Pagliai's. At our latest trip we discussed why we liked the pizza - and determined it was the sauce, the crust, and even the ingredients! It is all delicious! The pepperoni pizza is definitely a classic - but the specialty pizzas are also good. I recently tried the new southwest bbq chicken pizza and loved that one too!
We usually end up ordering more than one and sharing since it is so hard to decide.
They offer a small selection of beers and also have hoagies - but I go for the pizza.
If you want a fancy restaurant - this isn't the place. If you want a fun place for pizza and conversation - then this is perfect!
