Great Italian Food

This is my 'go to' Italian restaurant. Family run with a big menu and they do take-out! The occasional coupon (dinner for 2 for $25) help too. Lovely atmosphere and good for groups as well as a romantic dinner.

I love plain old marinara with meat sauce and this version was amazing. The meatballs were made perfectly/ The Caprice salad was fresh and so good. I loved the garlic bread that came with the meal. If your in Prescott visit this place you won't be sorry.

The restaurant opens at 4pm, when we arrived a little early, there already was a waiting line. That's a good sign. We had 3 people walk by us and said they had great food.

My husband and I took our grandsons to Prescott for a 3 day vacation. After checking in to the hotel, we went to Papa's for dinner.
