Visited here with my husband and three daughters. Had pizzas and pasta. Pizzas were lovely and thin and cooked in wood fired oven. Good simple food.

This place isn't fancy but the food is great. The caprese salad was one of the best I've ever had. The pizzas were baked in a brick fired oven. We ordered meat lovers pizzas. Very tasty with plenty of toppings and great thin and crispy crust.

Location just off "main road". Very slow service, staff forgot things (like a request for a bottle of wine!). No cheesecake left for dessert. Price not bad considering other restaurants near by.

Hi Graeme, thank you very much for your review. Sorry to hear your experience with us wasn't the best it could have been. We do sometimes run out of popular items, like our cheesecake, during service, though we strive to have enough on hand so customers don't have to miss out. I'm sorry the service you experienced wasn't up to... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we visited Il Pappa's . The wait staff was very pleasant and efficient.The pizza was simply great. The crust rivaled that of the famous Pizza Bianco's in Scottsdale. We had caprese salad, pizza and the house red wine. It was a great very reasonably priced meal.. Highly reccommend it.

We visited on a weekday evening walking up from the Rodney Bay area - Il Pappa is closer than other marina-based restaurants to that side of town. The restaurant serves great thin-crust pizzas (highly recommend the Napoletana) and the chocolate cheesecake was to die for. We felt very welcome - such a lovely young girl serving us and making sure... More
