If you delight in classic Italian cuisine, why not give Papa Joe's Restaurant a try? One of my favorites is Chicken Gio, which is a tantalizing casserole consisting of chicken breast, fragrant and tasty Calemata olives, robust garlic, in a delightful wine base! This treat...More

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!
