Fodor's Review

Expect long lines at this lively New York–meets-Victoria trattoria where the tables are tightly packed to accommodate the crowds. Opened by Brooklyn's Siegel brothers in 1979, Pagliacci's is all showbiz, from the signed photos of the owners' movie-star friends plastering the walls to the live jazz playing several nights a week. The menu runs from the "Mae West" (veal with artichoke hearts) to the "Prawns Al Capone" (shell-on butterfly shrimp sauteed in butter and white

wine). Pag's is crowded, frenetic, and buckets of fun.

Scampi to Die For . . .

We dined here this summer on our visit to Victoria/Vancouver/Seattle. Best meal, hands down in any of the three cities. The shrimp scampi was to die for - they even provided the ingredients so we could try to replicate at home. Waiters were friendly and helpful. The wait was longer after the jazz started up but the free wine while you wait was a plus and we didn't mind the wait so much. Kids enjoyed the atmosphere and the music as well.
