I have eaten here so many times and it never disappoints. It has wonderful pastas with intriguing names and their bread is to die for. It is a small restaurant with great atmosphere and worth the wait if there is a line up. It is...More

Hi Randy, I'm so sorry your Lasagna was dry! It should never be. Please email me so that I can replace it for you. Solomon@pagliaccis.ca

Yes, this place is a favorite but we did not think it was exceptional at all compared to many, many Italian restaurants we have patronized. Seating was horrible as your neighbor on every side was from 1 to 6 inches away preventing discussions of any...More

Always a highlight of our Victoria visits. Today no exception. Got there early so the wait was minimal. Service exceptional. Great tasty food. New menu but many of the old favourites still available. Nice to find one of my favourite BC wines from Mt Boucherie...More

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
