The décor is chic and a little old fashioned (It's supposed to be), and everyone is friendly. You are greeted by a hostess or host, and taken to a table quickly. The menu is extensive, and everything is available that is on the menu. The food is really great. We've only had very good experiences at Papa's.

Great Italian food and a cute atmosphere! I would make a reservation as the place is pretty small. Lots of locals in Prescott order pizza to go from here.

For dinner, we all went to a new place, well for us anyways… Papa’s Uptown Italian Restaurant in downtown historic Prescott. WOW WOW WOW! What a super... More

We had tried another Italian restaurant the night before as Papa's was not open on Monday. We considered going for another type food for our last night in Prescott. Since we had a so-so dinner at the other place, we were determined to have a good... a REALLY good Italian dinner, so we went to Papa's. From the second Mama... More

A first to this Italian Restaurant. Upon arrival Prego from all! Loved the greeting, the service rendered and the owner who visited the table and shared excellent minestrone soup. But for me/us it did not resonate with us. The setting is lovely but too dark, the artichoke appetizer was breaded and fried, never order appetizers but it's Italy and love... More

It is always appreciated to get honest feedback from our valued customers and I want to thank you for taking the time to share your review. Although I am happy that you liked our flavors enough to take your leftovers home, It sounds like our kitchen staff was very heavy handed on the sauce as well as the pasta with... More

Traveling here to Prescott, I used Trip Advisor to help select our hotel and our restaurant choices. I am so glad that others ranked Papa's so high which is why we tried it tonight. The owner and staff were so gracious! The best minestrone we have enjoyed in any restaurant, and we have eaten at some of the best in... More

I had been meaning to check out this restaurant, but they are not open for lunch, and I rarely have dinner in downtown Prescott (a little far from home if wine is involved). I finally had occasion to go for a pre-show meal with a group of 12 women. The restaurant did a great job with a large, lively group,... More
