We stopped in to Papa Nicks cause the GF had been here for lunch and liked it. We ordered the 14 inch Master. It was perfect. The crust was just right no flapping and the ingredients made it delicious. I will be back.

We visit this restaurant frequently. Food is good, no complaints there. Went for breakfast today, and it took 15 minutes just to get our drinks. Waiter, Hector, told us our food would be right out when he finally did bring drinks. After another 30 minutes, and no refills offered, he finally said oh, I submitted your order. He came back...

Okay if we had a better waitress I'd probably go for a fourth star. The food was okay. Not unique or fabulous but certainly okay. A calzone and salad, soup and pasta made up our side of the table. Our companions had a veal dish and a chicken dish. Being light eaters, they took half of their dinners home so... More

We are from out-of-town but have visited Papa Nick's several times on past visits and always enjoyed the hot fresh bread and delicious pasta dishes. However, we were very disappointed on our most recent visit. We were seated right away (it was after the lunch crowd so the restaurant was almost empty.) Our server was attentive (although we had to... More

We visited with a 1 year old and three year old and they were very accommodating. Service was good, their prices are reasonable and there's a ton of food! You get soup, salad and bread with entrees, so if you leave hungry you'll just have to blame yourself. I really liked their house salad dressing and the bread was fresh.... More

Our party of two was seated promptly, and our order was taken very quickly (almost rushed). The food was reasonably priced and tasted fine, but the waitress never came back and asked us how the food was. She never refilled our drinks, and my companion didn't receive her side of spaghetti or bread until we got the attention of another... More

We happened upon Papa Nick's by chance when another local restaurant was packed. We were pleasantly surprised. Two of my kids got the call ones and they were huge. My son got the tilapia and said it was delicious. I had the gyro and it was amazing. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Thanks Papa Nicks!

Group of 9 people ate breakfast here and service was uneven. The first person had almost finished their breakfast by the time the last person received theirs. My home fries were lukewarm and I asked for onions on them. Saw one onion while someone else had lots of onion. Two others sent theirs back only to have their eggs returned... More

You are like me when it comes to finding a new restaurant, I want Italian, I want casual, and I want good. So what does that mean? For us guys who want to take you out for a nice dinner and not have to dress up, and you can dress up if you want; this is the place. When you... More
