Paul Pagliaro is the executive chef at Original Pagano’s Pizzeria. Paul has a Sicilian and Roman family background. He continues to implement recipes, cooking methods, and principles that he learned from his grandmother, while adding in a few ingredients of his own to such classics as deluxe hot roast pork and hot roast beef. However, his chicken cutlets are exactly as his grandmother would make them.
We believe that eating isn’t just about feeding your body. It’s about nourishing the soul, too. And life is too short for mediocre soul food. We make sure every dish that we serve satisfies your entire being. Crispy, savory, sweet, juicy, satisfying. Whatever you crave is what we want to serve. Pagano’s Meating House & Pizzeria was founded by owner Matt Pagano who also owns the Original Pagano’s Pizzeria.
Matt knows that family is what is important. He brings the family tradition of first-rate customer service to his restaurant, something he learned from his dad, Jack Pagano. Since the days of working at his dad’s food store, Matt has ensured that high-quality customer service is at the heart of all of his establishments, from the servers to the cashiers. He also owns Pagano’s Market and Bar at 2 Commerce Square, 2001 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
