We had a very large order for the university. They were fast and very friendly. The pizza was great and the environment inside the establishment had an old time feel to it with great hospitality.

Being from NJ, it’s hard to find “good” pizza. We enjoyed the pizza here. Waitstaff was attentive and serve alcohol

This has been our families favorite pizza place for over 30 years! The crust, sauce, sausage and toppings are made fresh daily. So DELICIOUS!!

Some people rave about their pizza. I see nothing special about the pizza here. It reminds me of cheap frozen pizza (that you can watch being made). I think people like it because of its (local) history. Not worth it.

it's a cosy place...waitresses are very friendly...you pay after you're done on your way out...I had a vegeterian pizza and it was ok...a fair pizza taste...crispy bread as I ordered it...I didn't like that much...nice atmosphere and good music...

Pagliai's Pizza has been around forever and I love their pizza! Iowa City is my hometown so I grew up with Pagliai's. I love their simple approach to pizza!

We needed some local pizza during our UI orientation for our son. We were not disappointed! So yummy. GREAT crust! I am a sucker for a good pizza crust. Atmosphere was fantastic. GREAT service.

We stop here as often as we can when we're in Iowa City. Delicious! Especially like Canadian bacon, sausage, & mushroom pizza.

I have been eating at this pizzeria since I was a kid and have yet to find a match. This a family owned shop and most nights you will see one of the owners making pizza along side the young men. Don't expect anything but...More

Great local pizzeria with great thin crust pizza. A classic that is never going to go out of style in Iowa City!
