This food is always very tasty HOWEVER the atmosphere although unique is isn't the first choice for a Romantic dinner simply because the wait time to get in is always at least 45 minutes and it is SO CRAMPED AND NOISY. Excellent food but really stressful .I like fine dining but DONT want to have to wear ear plugs.

The food was quite good! I had the Sophia which is a seafood pasta with choice of soup or salad. I was a little disappointed in my Chicken Moroccan soup which was chickenless, not one single piece of chicken in the whole bowl. However the pasta dish and the bread made up for this. The bread is wonderful, light and... More

Any time we make it to Victoria, we plan our evening around coming to Pagliacci's. It's always crowded and noisy....but it's to be expected. Everything we've had has been delicious. Two nights in snowy Feb, we have a list of other places to try from friends of ours - and we decided - why stress? Just come back the second... More

Dropped in at 7:15 - no reservations taken, and were seated at the last table for 2. Started with an excellent salad, than small order of pasta (thank goodness) as well as a full order. Met Howie Siegel himself - quite the character, and complemented him on his wonderful staff. At 8:30 there was live music - we were not... More

My mother-in-law recommended this place to my husband and I, as she has visited it over the years on her trips to Victoria. The restaurant did not disappoint. The menu was delicious, and the soups were especially good. We loved looking around the quaint restaurant with its New York theme. The photos and unique items on the walls gave the... More

If you want tasty, freshly made dishes, with great service in a vintage setting, this is the place for you. The Chicken Fajita soup was really delicious and I had to upgrade from a cup to the bottomless bowl it was so good. Others in our group enjoyed the seafood lasagna, vegie ravioli, and salmon linguine. There were so many... More

What a surprise. Excellent menu for anyone. With a variety of dishes with a new twist on even the most Italian cuisine at affordably priced. Do try to bypass rush hour, this restaurant is popular by locals and visitors alike.
