Welcome to Pagliai’s Pizza

A Family Tradition Since 1968

We do things the old fashioned way. We make all our own dough in house. All our fresh cheese is ground in house. Only the freshest ingredients are used in producing our food. We want to make sure that we are giving you the best food we can possibly produce. Take a bite, close your eyes, and taste the delicate blend of fresh ingredients & spices that is in everything Pag’s creates.

What They Say

This restaurant has excellent service, excellent pizza and other Italian-American dishes, and a warm, friendly and relaxed environment. It's one of my two favorite places to eat in Southern Illinois. I would recommend it to everyone as you can bring children (they even give the kids some dough to play with if you ask) and dress casually. Great party rooms and service. Thanks Pagliai's!

The best pizza I've ever had! In fact, I hope that the last meal I have before I die is a thick & crispy crust pizza with extra cheese and sausage from this fine establishment... Then I'd die a happy man!

R. Rogers

We were looking for a good place to have pizza after the Saluki basketball game last night. Our daughter, a grad of SIU, recommended Pag's. We were greeted by our friend, Zack, who recommended "Joe's Special". Seriously one of the best pizzas we've ever had! We will be back!

L. Davis

Good pizza, but their hot ham and cheese sandwich and lasagna are the best!

H. Gibson

The lasagna is the best I've ever had. This place is a Carbondale institution. Their delivery is fast and the food is life changing.

J. King

Been going here for over 30 years. Consistently good quality food at a fair price. Good attentive service. Lots of free parking, great beer selection.

G. Stevens

...I do consider Pag's to be one of the very best restaurants in the Mid-west. They are very friendly and constantly deliver the highest quality food. Every time my family is in town, we always make it of going to Pag's and have for at least 25 years. Pag's is # 1!

M. Phillips

Have always loved Pags! In college there was nothing better than a big, fat slice of pizza! As an adult, we totally enjoy thin and chewy pizza. I buy their salad dressing and bring it back to St Louis with us! Pags is always one of our choices on our "places to go while home" list! Love it still.. 25 years later!!!

C. Lewis

Love their pizza and salad so much! Also, so appreciated the thoughtfulness of our waitress, who brought out a small ball of pizza dough for my 2 yr old daughter to play with, to keep her occupied while we waited for our pizza. Great place all around.
