We stumbled upon this restaurant during a business trip to Prescott. We arrived a few minutes before they opened and they happily opened the doors for us. We were introduced to "Mama" on the way in. The place starting filling up immediately. I soon saw why. Mama came out with a free sample of her home made soup and it... More

My husband and I came here while visiting Prescott. We were greeted by "Mama" who gave us some homemade Minestrone soup as we were seated, which was amazing! The staff was so friendly and the Italian food was one of the best we've had. Will definitely come here again!!

Visiting Prescott for a college visit, we ventured downtown to an amazing Italian feast of stuffed peppers and fettecini Alfredo. The food was like an experience straight from Italy. The service was second to none. The atmosphere, with Frank and Dean playing in the background was perfect b

After much deliberation about where to have dinner, we chose Papa's, and could not have made a better selection! I must say that it is my new favorite restaurant, and worth the drive from Phoenix just to eat there! Papa's is located just off the main square, next to several vintage shops. From the outside, it is a bit unassuming... More

My wife and I are 100% Italians, 2nd generation and born in Chicago. Papas is a family owned and run business. When you are Italian you know ... If the sauce is good, then the food will be authentic. Papa's sauce is THE BEST!! Marinara, Meat, Diavolo (spicy) are great. Papas prepares their meals in the true Italian tradition with... More

Looks like a tiny place and you think it won't hold to many people, then you step in and it goes forever and there are nooks everywhere you look with cozy tables. Our waitress Dove was great, we had a group of 9 and she got all the orders right and was very attentive. The calamari was yummy, the entree... More

Excellent food. The owner (I believe) stopped at each table and brought a bowl of Minestrone soup to sample. The meal was outstanding. Best Italian food since I moved from New York many years ago. My wife and I will be traveling to Prescott just to eat there as often as we can.
