We are from Flagstaff, and Papas is our favorite Italian restaurant in Northern Arizona.The food is delicious! I especially love the eggplant parm! Owner, Donna gives special attention to her customers, by giving free samples of her delicious homemade soups!. Prices are reasonable too.

Every time my boyfriend and I go into town, we love eating at Papa's Italian Restaurant. Just recently we were at Papa's with the family on New Years Eve. I had called Papa's at the busiest time of the night to see if there were any openings, (because we forgot to make a reservation for new years eve!). Andrea busted... More

Where to begin with this incredible restaurant. The ambiance starts the moment you walk in and are greeted with a lovely smile by either a host or one of the owners. You are then presented to your table with the feeling your right at home amongst friends. The beautiful Donna or Andrea (the owners) greet you right after your seated... More

We got here about an hour before closing time so maybe the average food was because everyone wanted to go home? We tried several dishes, I had a sampler, and all were just ok. The smells were good and it was crowded so maybe we just mistimed it? We had better luck with Rosa's just down the street.

Hello Tucsonan, We appreciate genuine feedback and I'm sorry we were a bit "off" the evening you visited us for dinner. You are right, the dining room was bustling and our kitchen crew was slammed. Please accept our apologies for not giving you our best. We try so hard to be consistently "on point" but occasionally we fall short. Even... More

Reasonably priced Italian comfort food... Service warm and friendly... Limited wine list... Still a very good choice for dining (dinners only) in Prescott.

This was our first time at 'downtown' Papa's. The four of us were put I a table that should only be used for small people.
