Fratelli Pagliuca's Restaurant is like a little corner of sunny Italy located in Boston's north end. It has been an oasis of old-country Italian food for decades, and is family owned and operated. The Pagliuca family originated in Motefalcione Avellino, and when they moved to the United States, they brought time-honored recipes with them. When you visit Fratelli Pagliuca's Restarurant, you will enjoy entrées like chicken campagna, which is a boneless chicken breast sautéed with mushrooms, peppers, onions and potatoes. You can also choose from steaks, chops, seafood and of course pasta.

If you would like to enjoy a drink before dinner, visit the cocktail bar. Wine, beer and cordials are also available with your meal. Fratelli Pagliuca's restaurant is warm, welcoming and offers great food.

    Just wasn’t very good at all. The server was friendly but wasn’t around when you needed something. We had been told it was the place to go… nope it wasn’t. Honestly, it’s so hard to find a place so make sure you do your homework before you go!

    Our server had a very hard time. We asked for split checks and that was too much for her and she let us know it. We waited a long time to order with 1 young child even though the place was not full, always risky! The food was ok but expensive for what it was. They did get our orders correct.

    There was a table of six and our table of two received less than optimal service. I have been at this restaurant every May for a large group gathering and it has been outstanding. Our waitress was young and was more interested in her male coworker than our table. Our drinks came late - well after the other table who arrived after us. She was not well versed on the menu and brought us the wrong appetizer. I figured that maybe I communicated the wrong appetizer and just accepted it. I asked for a second beer which was a Peroni and was brought a Bud light. Bob DeGregorio has brought the group of Directors from Atlantic Hockey to this restaurant for years. He would feel terrible about this. Just fix it for the future.

    Sadly, our visit was a disappointment. It was intended as a “thank you” dinner for some friends. The food was fine. Unfortunately, there was so much noise that we had to lean across the table and scream at each other to be heard (brick walls). They was one waitress for the entire restaurant. She tried very hard but her task was simply impossible. She took our initial order but never returned to our table again. We waited 45 minutes after we finished our meal for the check as there was a long line of people trying to pay and leave.

    The food was excellent, but the service was not really what we expected. We got our drinks, appetizers/salad and entrees within 15 to 20 minutes so overall we waited 45 minutes. There was only one waitress to take on other customers besides us and we got impatient. We hoped it would be a pleasant experience but it was disappointing. We sat outside which was nice, but wanted a pleasant time enjoying dinner than being disappointed. We even had to go inside to ask for the check and wrap up our leftovers.

    We got bread and eventually water, but waited almost 25 min to get someone to take our food and drink order. Food was just ok, nothing special. Had the ambiance of a Bertuccis. Our waiter was very nice and apologetic.

    We drove to Boston from CT o fly out of Logan to Ireland and we were looking for a good traditional Italian meal before leaving! Pagliuca’s checked all the boxes. Antipasto was outstanding!. We were a party of 5 and still did not finish the small size. Minestrone and pasta fagioli excellent. Chicken Verdicchio yummy. Eggplant perfectly done. Caesar salad - green, super crisp and a delicate but so flavorful dressing. Large meatballs which were the best we’ve had in long time. The perfect end to the meal was an incredible Tiramisu and Cappucino. We will definitely recommend and go back whenever we are in Boston. Thank you Pagliuca family for keeping the tradition of authentic Italian food in a warm family environment

    Food was amazing. If you’re looking for old school, “red-sauce” Italian, you can’t go wrong here. This was our first go at Pagliuca’s and we’ll definitely be back. Wait staff was excellent, super casual atmosphere, only hang up is they have a limited bar, it’s more wine and beer with a few cocktails - martinis are available and I had a great Negroni. The braciola special was tremendous. We have been walking past this place for years and we’ve been missing out.

    Started as a quiet evening but quickly became much more a social restaurant around 7pm. Loved sitting by the windows. This place is a favorite but I love seeing the change from quiet corner to bustling restaurant. The Chicken Felix is a good choice for something familiar with a different take and the eggplant parm is a classic. Really friendly staff as well — treated us very warmly.
