Couple of years back Pacileo's lacked consistency as well as a welcoming staff. Have gone back few times in past couple of months and they've definitely improved their customer focus and friendliness. Their pizza has been superb and they deserve the kudos for the improvement/. In my opinion they rank amongst the top in the Branford area and definitely worth... More

Don't have to try to New Haven if you want that thin crust pizza. We love Pacileo's pizza, the meatballs are delicious and Al does make a great tomato sauce! Try the salad with the creamy Italian dressing-it's my favorite.

We've been several times for both pizza and dinners and have not been disappointed. The pizza is very thin crusted and crispy while the sauce is seasoned perfectly. The cheese is not sparse and also flavorful. We've tried pepperoni, sausage and bacon, and all have been quite good although not very generous. The dinners were also very good, with good-good-sized... More

fast, and always good. A bunch of us at the marina always go here since the options at the marina are poor. Fantastic place

We tried the new Pacileos located in North Branford for lunch today. Ordered a large pepper and cheese pizza. Delicious New Haven style (without the hassle of New Haven). Extremely crisp and thin crust. The decor is very nice too. We will return for dinner!

ordered new york style calamari,was not what i expected. anywhere you go,sauce is on the side. didn't know you need to ask for the sauce to be on the side. came out with sauce loaded on the calamari,they were soggy. service was good,but that's about it. if in area again,maybe would give them another shot,but i would order something else.

My wife and I enjoyed the pizza here last week. Thin crisp crust with just enough mozzarella. In my opinion it's tied for the best pizza in Branford (with Marco's). Nothing fancy about the restaurant but clean and plenty of room in booths. Service was excellent. Prices very reasonable.

Most of the time will compete with the best New Haven style pies. Every once in a while it misses the mark..oven too cold ,cook distracted ..who knows? Not a warm and fuzzy place !
