Always good food and service

The menu offers a very wide selection making it difficult to choose, but I have enjoyed everything I have had from lamb shank and hamburgers to pastas and pizzas. Their cocktails are also worth a try. Perfect venue if you want to meet friends with small children.

I would say this is more of a family restaurant. The food was good and the service was also good. I would put it just above average.

My experience with Papachinos has always been pleasurable and I've used several (Fourways, Midrand, Morningside). They seem to be very focused on well-trained staff (always a good thing!) and their selection of food is perfect.

I like this restaurant because it is local, I wouldn't go out of my way to come here though. It's really nice to sit outside in the summer (if you like children!) and there is also lots of indoor space for the winter months. I was a bit disappointed as I asked for no onions on my pizza and it... More

Met some business colleagues for an evening supper and sat in the bar area. Service was excellent, pizza's excellent, nice selection of wines. We enjoyed it so much and appreciated the waiter efforts so much it earned him a 50% tip! Definitely on my list of preferred restaurants.

The food was great, the service was great and so too were the child minders so we had a great relaxing time without having to over our shoulders every few minutes. Excellent entertainment for the kids.

We managed to get in on Father's day gone by just before the crowds got in and were pleasantly greeted and shown to our table by attentive waitors. The cappuccinos were great and served with very tasty biscuits and we were brought more as we waited for the main dishes. One of us didn't eat eggs so they gladly swopped... More

The venue at Papachinos Midrand is very good. Well decorated inside and lots of outside space with plenty to keep the kids occupied. The menu is extensive and offers some interesting if nontraditional options. The pizza's come with lots of toppings. The venue is a little out of the way but it adds to the sense of space. However, the... More
