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!

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.
