Name of Restaurant: Pagliai’s Pizza & Pasta
Location of Restaurant: 1129 Broadway St, Cape Girardeau, MO
This place has been around since the mid-’60′s. One can imagine why because as soon as you step in, you are enveloped by the amazing smell and the set up they’ve got going on. It makes you feel like you aren’t in some college town.
I can’t ever think of a better pizza that I’ve ever had. They hand make the dough right there in the restaurant. Since it is busy enough, it is always fresh. They also happen to make the sauce, which is spicy enough to tantilize any tastebud, though not overwhelming for those who can’t handle heat. Needless to say, it was perfect. Most pizza joints use shredded cheese on their pizza’s-not here. They slice the cheese off a block, which makes it nice and stringy cheesey. They also have their own slicers when they slice meats and veggies. Perfect.
If you are ever in Cape and have a hankering for a pizza, go to Pagliai’s. You’ll not find a better pizza.
