I've been in the restaurant business most of my life, in the front of the house and in the kitchen. I know the business. The biggest letdown of our favorite restaurants is consistency. Pagliacci's is one of the most consistent, delicious, home style Italian restaurants in the area. Unpretentious comfort food at its best. It's a wonderful menu complimented with... More

We enjoyed our dinner very much. I had stuffed eggplant with Spinach. I had tomato Florentine soup with chicken and vegetables with my lunch and could only eat one of the stuffed eggplant brought the other one home for dinner! Husband had veal scallopini with pasta and salad and had plenty to bring home for dinner. The service was great,... More

we were seated immediately and greeted by a waitress. The fried calamari app was some of the best I have had and way more than I expected. the chicken Scaparella was also one of the best I have ever had. the chicken was like butter. The sea scallops were also excellent and plenty on the plate, approx 10. Very good... More

Connecticut enjoys a rich selection of modestly-priced Italian restaurants serving wonderful food. Pagliacci's, unfortunately, is not one of them. Being somewhat local to the restaurant, we have eaten at Pagliacci's quite a few times over the last two decades or so. Most of the time, the offerings have been acceptable, Our most recent experiences, however, were not enjoyable. Overall, we... More

This place needs no positive feedback from the locals because it is an excellent Italian restaurant with authentic Italian food including homemade pasta. The portions are ample - most people take home the leftovers - the prices are extremely reasonable and the service is always top notch! If you never tried this place, put it on your list!

Italian food is like the ocean, big, wet, and frankly, they look the same. But this restaurant has a secret ingredient. They make the pasta fresh! The location is very convenient and the parking was fine. The design is fresh and not overly trying to look like an Italian restaurant so you can just enjoy. The salad and drinks were... More
