Wife and I stopped in for a pizza for supper Thursday evening. A perfect pizza and great service. Nice clean place, with 70’s music in the background. Not much more you can say. THE BEST IN CAPE!!!

Pagliai's is the by far the best pizza in the Cape/Jackson area. The cheese is beyond words. The atmosphere is great for a group of friends, a family, or a couple. Pizza doesn't get better than this!

Anytime I'm in the Cape Girardeau area I always stop in. Have been eating here since the 1970s. Love the pizza and I love the tradition and I love that they still make the pizzas the same way.

They are very busy on the weekends. We went last weekend at 5:00 PM and there was a line. I personally know the owner and believe he would make accommodations if you were to call him.
