They like to remind you that the "g' is silent. Silent or not, this place has been serving up happy Seattleites one slice at a time for more than 30 years. They must be doing something right.
Good pie for its type – It's a thin crusted pie with little sauce and great toppings. Some folks (I am one) LIKE it this way. Others don't. Others can go to Pete's where it's swimming in sauce. On the rare occasions when I'm NOT making my own at home, I'll continue to go with these folks. Pretty good pie, if pricey.
What are people smoking?!! – I am little more than an earnest pizza lover, but I can not for the sake of all that is sacred in pizza understand how this Pagliacci gets rated so high year in and year out. Are the people voting for this place actually eating the pizza? It tastes like a combination of cardboard, V8 and string cheese rolled into a greasy little ball. You'd do better (and I don't suggest this) to unwrap a Kraft single, throw it on a Ritz and pop it in the oven.
Pagiliacci: a bit clownish – As a Former NYer, I found although the toppings ample and interesting, that the dough seemed a bit weak and undercooked.
Hip, but not great. – Wow, this got the top rating? The food isn't really that great. But, its not that bad either. You don't really go to this place for the amazing food, you go for the fun, cheap, and hip spot to eat. The food is more of a 'New York' style, but it misses absolutely everything New York pizza is known for. They are supposed to have great crusts (remember the water in NYC is amazing, hence things like pizza crusts and bagels). The crust here isn't good, its soggy and a bit greasy. The toppings are the noted part of this restaurant. I always order the special of the day because its a bit unique.
Pagliacci #1??? THINK AGAIN! – Im not saying its horible pizza, but definitely well below the Chicago standards of which I base my taste for pizza. I understand it is not meant to be Chicago style, and is more NY style, but I'm just not down with the soggy paperthin slice of za. In my opinion, the best pizza to be found in this city is in the U Village, DelFino's. Their pizza is incredible. Flavorful crust, not too dry, and deep. Dont mess with this place, they know what they're doing. Its not cheap, but it is definitely worth holding out for. Try the spinach stuffed pizza...UN-BELIEVEABLE!!!
cutipatooti – The best pizza anywhere from coast to coast. My son lives in Seattle and that is the first meal we eat out when I go to visit him. I dont' even bother to eat pizza from anywhere else or in any state anymore. Pagliacci is the best and their salads are great also.
Pagliacci Pizza – I've only ever eaten Pagliacci's at home - whether I've picked it up myself, or had it delivered. So ambience doesn't really relate to the rating of the food. Their pizza is awesome! I've recommended it to several people. They have a changing seasonal menu that always offers a nice surprise and variety.
Give me a break! – Seattle knows jack about pizza and it is never more clear than when it comes to the ratings that rule Pagliacci high. This is pedestrian pizza and if you tried to serve this in Chicago the restaurant would go under within a month. The store has no atmosphere... it is a cafeteria, complete with trays. There is little good pizza in Seattle, Pagliacci is certianly not one of the few highlights.
NY pizza, Seattle speed – Great pizza. They don't cover up a poorly cooked sauce with sugar or too many spices. Sauce is cooked a long time, making it smooth and un-acitic. Crust is salty not sweet and they don't cover it with a ton of cheese.
Service is slow as molasses. How can you walk into a Pizzeria at 6pm and have to wait 15 minutes for a slice of cheese??? Get the process straight. I should be able to walk in and out in 3 minutes or less.
Come on Seattle! – Look Seattle, this has gone on long enough. Pagliacci is NOT the best in the city! Stop the "popular" voting method and pick a pizza shop with some REAL pies. Thin, overpriced pizzas should not be aloud in the spotlight!
