"Loved it! Our usual is the house special (pizza) which is still probably our favorite. We got the brisket to take home to our son and try a piece our self. We all loved it! Now it will be hard to decide which kind to get!

This is the best pizza place! Service is top notch.. Pizza is always delicious. Can not think of anything i would change or improve on. If you have not tried Paglia's, you should!"

"Pizza and service are amazing. My family and I have been looking for a new pizza spot and this is it. Tried thin and double crust loved both. House special was so good."

" Freaky delicious! A great place to treat yourself. One of the better places to go for thin-crust if you're into that."

"One of the better Pizza places in Des Moines. Thin crust is best we have had. Go on a Wednesday when medium 2 topping is 10.95."

”Wow! I should of came here sooner! Lunch special was AWESOME! I got salad, a HUGE slice of pizza and a soda for 9$. Way better then McDonald's. Lol The young lady I ordered from was extremely polite. The gentleman pulling pizzas kept his station OCD clean! Great customer service overall. My only disappointment is I didn't start coming here sooner!!”

"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."

"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."
