This place is awesome! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food. We received our food quickly. Minestrone soup was really good. Very affordable! Great place for families and for couples as well. Family owned and operated. You will NOT be disappointed!

Whenever I eat Italian, eggplant parm is my dish of choice. Papa's served the best I can recall having. Sauce was excellent with chunks of whole tomato. Frank the bartender suggested creamy Italian dressing for my salad and that too was superb. On my next trip to Prescott, Papa's will be at the top of my list! Thanks for the... More

Wonderful food and great atmosphere Last time I arrived 15 minutes before my husband. Mama came by the table to see if I were ok, when I explained my husband was running late she brought me out a bowl of soup to start on while I waited and chatted with me. The food has always been excellent. Truly a taste... More

My family and I had dinner here for a special occasion. The service was spot on and our food was very good. I had the beef ravioli which was excellent, but my daughter had lobster ravioli that she said was overwhelmed by the sauce. Everyone else was very pleased with their meals. We were a party of nine in a... More

We ate here on a Tuesday evening about 5:30. It was quite busy but we were lucky enough to get seated without a reservation. Food was tasty, service seemed a bit slow.

The atmosphere is wonderful and the service matched up. I had the manicotti and it was exceptional. Appetizers were yummy as well. We will eat here often.

We had reservations at 5pm Dec.27th, were seated right away, Our server Brendan was very polite and served us expertly. Extra bread was provided also. Coming back again for just my husband and myself to try new dishes! Talked with Donna, who was going around talking with her customers, and complimented her on her wonderful food(soup) etc.!

We went to Papa's for New Years Eve. This was the best Italian food I have had since we have lived in Arizona for the last 13 years. The food was amazing, the ambiance is so unique and cozy. I felt like we were back in Italy at a cozy Italian restaurant off a cobblestone street in Rome. But this... More
