Our party of six was lucky to be able to find a slow night-the restaurant isn't very large and is quite popular. Initially put off by the cutesy menu names, but the actual food was overall quite good. Worth the trip for the bread alone-the...More

The food & atmosphere are still fantastic - you'll probably have to queue for a table and will be very, very close to the next table but that's part of what makes Pagliacci's so much fun

We arrived at 5:30 pm and had to line up outside for about half an hour. It is a very popular place. The food was good. I really liked the side Caesar salad and the Frank pasta dish was OK. Hubby enjoyed his green side...More

This is a line-up restaurant in the evening, but worth the wait. Food is outstanding. It's a little crowded but a very pleasant atmosphere. We loved the food and all of our friends who have eaten there when in Victoria, say the same thing: Great...More

I love this restaurant and have to stop in whenever I find myself in Victoria. The bread alone is enough to make me want to eat here each time. Their pastas never disappoint and the salad is also very good. It’s a fun cozy atmosphere...More

Great selection of pastas, sandwiches, soups etc. The food was excellent. Everyone really enjoyed the varied meals we had. You have to go early before the lunch rush. No reservations so people just wait in line if you don’t go early. Takes a bit of...More

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

In all the years I have been going to Pag's they have never taken reservations. 50 people would almost take over the entire place. Very tight sitting but comfortable. The menu hasn't really changed in years - and why... More
