Great local pizza/pasta restaurant. Great pizzas but it's really the pasta we love from this place. Home delivery is always prompt and prices are good. Have been ordering from here for many years. Dining in is comfortable and welcoming.

New Italian owners 6 months in the business and still the place is pathetic! I just don't know how hard it is for a pizza shop to make a good pizza!!? They cut and skimp on cheap quality ingredients and stack it with the filler of cheese as they always have at this place. Competition in the area is dominoes... More

The chicken schnitzel was cheap quality in my view as were the meat toppings on the pizza(I had a heavy meat based pizza the ham was cheap quality etc, and chicken could be... More

Was extremely tasty pizza for several years and my regular. As a person who has looked for takeaway pizza in the NYC, Neo-Neapolitan vein, basically forever, I used really rate their pizza very highly. However, I detected a massive shift to what I'd call the typical bland crusted Aussie suburban pizza a little while ago now. After trying probably 4... More

I live in Boat Harbour and went to Sydney for the weekend with my family and some friends. We went to papa pizza and everything was perfect. Beautiful food, awesome staff, kids friendly and even the manager was looking after our table. I highly recommend the restaurant. The new management has definitely done an excellent work at the place.
