I have always been a fan of Papasallis. Have been visiting it frequently with family and friends and loved their pizzas, steaks and fish and chicken platters. This last visit, I had a terrible experience. though only a couple of tables were occupied, the staff seemed lethargic. Tables were not clean and there were no mats, napkins or cutlery present....

the place has lived up to its reputation since quite a few years. A good dineout menu and atmosphere indeed. Has become over priced in recent times though.

I have seen this place open and flourish in front of my eyes. Have been a regular customer ever since. Although it is not 100% Italian food, however, it is good taste in this part of the world. Service is good. Salad bar is excellent. Reservation is a recommended because queues can be long.

I think their pizzas and pastas are just great.pappSallis for me has always been fail safe . i even tried their hi tea. Although id say its more like a late lunch since has a lot of lunch items in its menu but it was still quite good. A nice place to eat.
