A recent visit to Papa's reminded me just how lucky we are to have this restaurant in town! The food is delicious (best calamari in town - just try it); the service is impeccable (never heard a server say "no, we can't do that"); and the ambiance is one of a kind (nice, but not stuffy; fancy, but not fragile)....

As newcomers to Prescott Papas is fast becoming our favorite restaurant. We usually try to squeak in for Happy Hour (which unfortunately ends at 5:30) because their $5 apps are wonderful (we usually order the calamari & if apps are going to be dinner the mussels as well) that combined with $5. a glass wine (usually ice cold Pinot Grigio)...

Leslie and Matt, our servers were wonderful! The food was excellent and generous! Our party of 9 with 2 children was no problem. More vegetarian options than we're used to. Only wish the minestrone didn't have sausage in it!

I've been to AZ quite a few times and although I enjoy many of the restaurants with a Southwest flair, sometimes a nice Italian girl just has to have a touch of home! Thank goodness for Papa's...it really fit the bill. I generally shy away from red sauce and meatballs, since they rarely live up to my Mom's, but my... More

I went to this lovely restaurant with a friend for dinner while visiting for the day. I was so delighted with the service, food, atmosphere!

We ordered a margarita pizza to go. Mind you, we are used to NY style thin crust pizza. This was a heavy thick pasty white cake like dough and weighed a ton. There was thick blobs of fresh mozz, too much chunky pizza sauce and basil. When you took a bite, the thick blobs of mozz came off as you... More
