After two years here in northern Arizona, none of the multitude of restaurants visited so far have proven inspiring. Many are good, but none that really made you want to come back enough to plan it. I love Italian food and women😎. Both have proven warm, satisfying and delicious. However, I generally avoid Italian food due to the caloric intake... More

We had heard about this restaurant from several people and weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The prices were very reasonable too! We will definitely eat at Papa's again on our next trip to Prescott. Make a reservation, because this place is popular.

I made a walk by reservation about 2 hours before with a nice hostess. When I came back for dinner she recognized me and seated me at a good table. The meal started with tasty garlic bread and awesome minestrone. I ordered one of the night's specials, stuffed shells in tomato meat sauce. It came out bubbling hot from an... More

The food is very good. Mama Dona is always serving her soup. The only downside is that you need reservations.

Made a reservation early that morning and they called me right back to confirm. Dinner was great (I had chicken parmesan) and the portion was enormous. Could not eat it all. (so sad). The staff was attentive and helpful without being there all the time. Had the cassata cake for dessert. It was just okay, but I didn't really know... More

After seeing the reviews on this Italian restaurant we were excited to try this restaurant. And we were truly impressed! All the comments about the minestrone soup are so correct. It is amazing! Mama gave a a sampler right at the beginning of our meal. This is her Grandmother recipe! So yummy! Mama greets everyone with such love and attention.... More

After reading other reviews, we had to try out Papa's, and were not disappointed. Mama Donna served us a complimentary bowl of homemade minestrone to share, which was outstanding, then we had to try their calamari appetizer, which was also outstanding. My husband had the Chicken Florentine and I had the Baked Gnocchi, both of them highly recommended by our... More
