Great place to dine. I found this restaurant top shelf. If you like Italian cooking and environment. The service and food was excellent. The wine was beyond good. The atmosphere was clean and very warm and friendly.

Was not at all happy with the spaghetti dinner I got. Was not tasty. I've gone organic and maybe I have cleaned my palate and can't get a good meal out anymore. The prices are just uncalled for also.

Papa Joe"s Italian Restaurant has been a family tradition for 30 years. Papa Joe has personally constructed a diverse menu to fit anyone and everybody's taste buds, and each dish is prepared to order 'justa for you'. Whether you are looking for an aged tender steak, fresh seafood, or are in need of a carb fix, we got it! From the beginning, Papa Joe has prided himself in using the freshest and most whole ingredients available. In fact, many of the herbs we use are picked fresh from our herb garden and all of our dough is made on premises with a healthy blend of semolina and stone ground wheat. Cheers!
