While the original Pagliacci location on Seattle's University Way (commonly called the Ave) closed, just a few miles away the Pagliacci outlet on Sand Point Way got a makeover. To celebrate, there's free pizza for you.
On Saturday, Aug. 4, beginning at 11 a.m., Pagliacci will hand out free slices — max two per person — until 4 p.m. at its Sand Point store. As with any free food offer, we recommend showing up early and packing a festive attitude in case of a wait.
Founded in 1979, Pagliacci is a local family favorite, with many of its 25 Seattle- and Eastside-area outlets serving slices that make for a quick and easy dinner — even when you have to eat in the car. Eastsiders, take note: Pagliacci plans to open a new location in the fall of 2018 on the Sammamish Plateau.
Over the years Pagliacci Pizza has been voted a Seattle favorite in many polls, including ParentMap's Golden Teddy awards.
One note for newcomers: It's pronounced "paul - ee - ah - chee" — the "g" is silent because it's Italian. And the word "Pagliacci" means "clowns."
