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

Stopped in for dinner to go ordered my usual, "chicken pagliacci " substituted the broccli Rabi for spinach ,added extra hot peppers over angel hair and got my fix of the purely heavenly mini garlic breads, and sheer perfection!!! Dinner just doesn' t get much better than this!!!!!

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!

Thank you for such a great review. We try to always serve our loyal customers generous portions of quality cuisine at reasonable prices. We are happy you enjoyed our fresh pasta. Thank you again for your time and for the compliments. We look forward to serving you again soon. More

This is our go-to restaurant whenever we are craving Italian or pizza. We have never had a bad meal and the portion sizes are huge! Very nice to leave with leftovers for another night's dinner.

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

We had a really fun experience plus a very good dinner - plus got a wonderful recommendation for some of the tastiest and best priced Cab Sauvignon we had in a long time. Very clean facility, home made pasta, nice atmosphere, better level of Italian meals - this place is a winner!!!!
