I've been eating at Pagliacci's going on 20 some odd years. Most visits to the Island include linking up for good food in a fun restaurant with friends. Service is amazing given this place hums on a lot of occasions. I enjoy the din and...More

We were told to go early as reservations are not taken and there is always a lineup. Managed to get the last table before it became very busy. Food was delicious and the service was impeccable! One of our new favorites in Victoria now.

Food and atmosphere here is to die for! A must visit if you like true Italian pasta, good wine and great service. Atmosphere is really wonderful - soft jazz playing in the background, each bite divine!

It says that the restaurant is vegan friendly.. I used to come here all the time before transitioning to veganism. What would my options be? I'd LOVE to start going back again. Everything was always amazing.

Hi Alanna, I suggest a Pagliacci's salad without cheese and maple balsamic vinaigrette and some extra chick peas. Or a pasta with just tomato sauce and vegetables (not on the menu but were happy to make it). Our bread in... More

Do you take tour group reservation? What is your seating capacity? We may have tour group of 30 to 50 people. Do you have group menu? May I see it online? If I have a tour group of 30 to 50 people, how much may be per person. Thank you

In all the years I have been going to Pag's they have never taken reservations. 50 people would almost take over the entire place. Very tight sitting but comfortable. The menu hasn't really changed in years - and why... More
