Seattle >Pagliacci Pizza: Queen Anne
Fresh, Local Pizza - Local and Seasonal Ingredients. Pretty off base review below - not liking Pagliacci Pizza for whatever reason is fine - but they actually use some of the freshest, locally sourced ingredients in the industry. This weekend we had the seasonal roma tomato and basil pizza - amazing. And the reason people LOVE Pagliaccis - and the reason Pagliacci Pizza received the Life Time Achievement Award for best pizza in Seattle by the Seattle Weekly this last week (Aug '08) - best crust in the industry (Seattle) best sauce and local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. Pagliacci Rules!
John Cleaver ? thank you so much for your observations. We truly appreciate it! We are humbled by your knowledge of our awards and the fact that we use local and seasonal ingredients. Check us out on YouTube for crust making videos. Thanks again

BEST PIZZA!. My boyfriend and I went here on your last day in Seattle. It was well worth it and we are definitely coming back the next time we are in town. I guess the staff could tell we were out of towners because we looked confused, but they were great. I liked the fact that there has variety on there menu. There was a lot to choose from and they also serve pasta. They also sell by the slice if you are on the go. I would have to say thank you to the delivery guy we saw at our hotel and the person who orded the pizza. We would not know this place existed if it weren't for them.
Super thin crust!. I love Pagliacci's. If you love thin crust this is the best I've had. Have them stretch the 13" crust to 17" for an even thinner pizza. They have some really good fresh ingredients and I really like the pies with the olive oil base. My favorite, the Parma Primo, goat cheese, prosciutto, fresh basil, yum!
Best gourmet Pizza in Seattle. My mom and I were at a hotel and wanted pizza...in Seattle. Hard to find good gourmet pizza, but there's was great. Highly recommended and somewhat affordable. Very tasty.
A locally owned chain inspires a legion of fans..
Its reputation is based on a New York-style crust topped with nothing more than tomato sauce and mozzarella. Seasonal pies make use of fresh local toppings like pears, portobellos and asparagus. Comfortable, loud and sometimes hectic, the slab concrete floors, exposed ductwork and high ceilings add up to a boisterous, young-at-heart experience. Slices and salads are available, or order a whole pie to share.
Nice gourmet toppings, nice open-air atmosphere. When there pretty late on a weekday (9PM). Had a pre-made pizza by the slice (good low-cost option for a single diner) - it had spiced chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzerela, and feta. Pretty good. Nice atmosphere: you can watch folks in the back hand-tossing the pizza, and the windows were all open. Even sitting inside, I could people watch folks going by on Queen Anne Ave.
Disappointing. This is just another pizza restaurant. This one happens to be clean and is located in a busy neighborhood. Make sure you bring your wallet because you won't get anything here for pocket change. Sauce is average and toppings are scarce. You will not exceed your dairy limit with this pie.
I've eaten excellent pizza in New York. While Pagliacci manages to get the overall shape correct, the resemlance to New York-style pizza ends there.
Pagliacci's tomato sauce is breathtakingly bland. Many times I have taken a bite of Pagliacci pizza, only to find myself examinging the piece in my hand to see if there was any tomato sauce at all.
In the end, the Pagliacci pizza experience is a disappointing mystery; all the ingredients should be there for an outstanding pizza but at their best, they rarely manage to eke out mediocrity. The only bigger mystery is how they acquired a good reputation.
Love their Pizza!. Great tasting Za! I wish they were a bit more generous with their topings though. Check out their seasonal specials.
Pagliacci's. I would recommend the pizza to everyone. It is good, filling and not a bad price. Next time, will try some of their other specialties as they looked great. The staff are cool too.
