I returned to Pags after being gone for 33 years. It is still as good as I remember from my student days. The best sausage south of Chicago. The best past is you feel like your sitting in an older pizzeria. I highly recommend it here.

This review is more of a summary of this restaurant. I have been to this restaurant many times for over 25 years. Each time I go, it is very consistent. Me and my wife usually get the thick and chewy pizza and rarely are dissatisfied with the quality. Service is not bad and pretty friendly. I think they get overshadowed... More

I went to school at SIU many years ago, and when I was there, we used to eat dinner almost every Sunday at Paglia's. When I had the opportunity to be in Carbondale again after 40 year absence, I made a point of stopping by to see if their pizza was as good as I remembered it--it was! My waitress... More

We were a group of 6, meeting before a performance of Godspell at the Varsity. We arrived at 4 because it was also the evening of the holiday parade which causes Illinois Ave to be closed. We found convenient and very inexpensive parking next door, directly across from the theatre. My husband and I shared a lasagna and a salad.... More

I was in town for a day visiting the SIU campus after having been away for 40-some years. I remembered Puglia's Pizza from my time at SIU, when I and a group of friends would eat there almost every Sunday evening. Amazingly, the pizza I had was just as good as I remembered it. According to the waitress, they are... More

I've been going to Pag's since I was a little kid. It used to be my favorite pizza place around, not anymore. Now it's hit or miss. Last time I took my family there our crust on the pizza was burnt. I was not happy and they didn't seem to care. When it's good, it's good, otherwise I would suggest... More

Went there for a professional get together. While I love their pizza, I used this opportunity to order the "special of the day" pasta with meat sauce, garlic bread and salad. The salad was iceberg lettuce and pizza cheese. Dressing on the side. Bread was quarter cut Italian loaf, buttered and garlicky do and thrown in the oven. Pasta was... More

Downtown place in a college town, but they had a pizza/salad combination that broke up the monotony of just a couple of slices of pizza. Be prepared for a slightly spicy slice, but not a bad place to grab a quick lunch.

Great food and service. Attended monthly meeting of AASI in back room with a very good server. Though it was kinda on pricey side but to be fair it was dinner time.
