This restaurant is in a strip mall next to a Raley's supermarket. We went here with 3 friends for dinner last Friday night. The inside is very cozy and well decorated. All of us had great dinners(all having something different). Service was good(although our server took longer than optimal to take our orders) The place really filled up. Reservations might... More

Papa Gianni's is a local Italian restaurant that I have visited many times. The food and service have yet to disappoint. I have tried several dishes and always enjoy it. The only complaint I have is its ALLWAYS busy and on the noisy side. Its a good idea to have a reservation. It is a smaller restaurant so the noise... More

While visiting in Shingle Springs, we went with friends to Papa Gianni's for dinner for our friend's birthday. Fortunately we made reservations which I recommend. The service was very good and the waiter's suggestions were spot-on. I had the Canneloni with spinach and mushrooms and it was one of the best dishes I have ever had. We didn't have anything... More

This was a pleasant surprise compared to most restaurants in the area. Starting with the service, the servers are attentive, thorough, and quick. Oh, and pleasant too! The salad is fresh and the creamy Italian dressing is superb. I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan. The sauce is authentic Italian!! I couldn't help but eat the entire meal which is rare. The... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and had take out a few times. The food is pretty good. We like the pasta dishes and the chicken piccata. The prices are reasonable. The dine-in ambiance lacks warmth and feels sort of like a strip mall restaurant but the service is friendly and efficient.

Great family restaurant. Arrived early for dinner (a must if you do not have reservations -especially on the weekends). The helpings are huge - almost all tables had "Doggie Bags" to take home. I could go on and on, but most people seem to have covered it all.

We have eaten here for almost every anniversary and many birthdays. We love the food. It can get a little noisy. Make reservations, it is almost always full. Order pizza out, it is amazing:)

I am not Italian, but growing up in MA, I have eaten my fair share of Italian food, especially red sauces. A friend suggested we drive up to Cameron Park to eat here, and holy happy mouth, this place is super! My partner enjoyed a chicken and pineapple pizza (note: the small is enough for two people easily), my friend... More
