"We came in tonight to order a pizza to go. My uncle has spent days next to his wife who is in hospice. The lady at the bar spent a good 20 minutes listening to him. The gentleman making the pizza was compassionate as well. It's amazing to have such compassionate, caring staff going the extra mile. Thank you so very much!! (Pizza was delicious too!)"

"Well if you haven't already eaten Pagliai's Pizza then you have been missing out on one of the Des Moines Metro finest pizza restaurants. As for me it's their own home blend of Italian sausage (double the sausage please), pepperoni, and mushrooms. You just can't get enough of their sausage and it's a fact. Once you have had one you'll be back for more because they are addictive."

Lee Booten

"Pagliai's is my favorite pizza!! No one can beat their home made sausage and cheese! I have been a fan since the 1960s at the Pizza House in Ames, run by Sam Pagliais."
