Everyone in town was buzzing about this place so we booked a 7 pm reservation, Mid Week. Donna from N.Y., the owner, brought us over a small bowl of her home made soup. It was excellent, well made and very thoughtful of her. She seams like she's on top of everything. I felt the dinners were prepared with a basic... More

It is evident that you felt rushed and I want to personally apologize for our lack of sensitivity as our staff started... More

We were out enjoying all the beauty of downtown Prescott AZ and got hungry. We decided to stop on in at Papa's kitchen for a bite to eat. From the moment we were looking in the staff all had smiles and looked like they were enjoying their work day. We were seated by the owner, a lady who just exploded... More

If you love Italian food and are in Prescott you must go. The food is all homemade and it's amazing! The service is great and the resturant is calming. I didn't care for the dessert however.

Small town charm... Big city quality! Tourists to our town are hesitate to dine at an Italian restaurant. If you are wanting an excellent dining experience Papa's will more than fit the bill. Frank was our server and he was outstanding.

What a find. Papa's has been around for years and is a wonderful Italian restaurant. The food is to die for, the service is exceptional and the atmosphere is extremely comfortable. For a terrific meal in an old world setting with great service you can't beat Papa's in Prescott, AZ!

This is a fun little dinner place right in downtown Prescott among antique shops and other restaurants, just about a block from the Square. It looks small and doesn't have much of a waiting area, but the tables go way back into the old building and there is a bar about halfway back. Have been here 3 times and everything... More
