Think Local, THINK PIZZA! Welcome back to our June pizza series! This week, it's Pagliai’s – an Italian restaurant providing fresh and delicious meals, pizza, and more for dine-in, takeout, delivery, and catering in Bowling Green, Ohio. 

Pagliai’s story began in 1967 when a nineteen-year-old Missouri-born pizza maker named George Nicolson passed through Bowling Green and thought our city would be an ideal location for the first “Pagliai’s.” In 1967, Pagliai’s opened for business at 1004 South Main, and the rest is history! Be sure to stay tuned for next week’s pizza feature as it’s a spin-off of Pagliai’s! #thinkbgoh #inthe419 #visitbgohio #visitnwohio
