Nice restaurant inside, good pizza to go

While waiting for my pizza to go, I admired the dining area...it was very comfy looking old-fashioned Italian restaurant style...not pretentious upscale atmosphere, but rather down home. Our pizza was good...the crust being of medium thickness. The meatballs that we added to our pizza were the... read more

5 minutes from Desert Springs I/II and JW Marriott. Good Pizza and Salads. If you like 'thin' crust you have to tell them that in advance (which we forgot to do) - tasted good but would have been better 'thinner. We also ordered wings and Veal Parmigean. Veal was small along with the side of pasta - didn't care for... More

The pizza is very good. We had Papa Dan's thin crust. They server Italian bread and I could make a meal out of that. Their house salad with their own Italian dressing is fresh and very tas

A great pizza place. Truly excellent pizza. We did takeouts which were wonderful so I can't say what the dining experience actually is in the restaurant itself. A bit pricey, but this is not Domino's or Pizza Hut.

Okay, so I've never been to Italy, yet, but this is what I imagine the food there will taste like. Wow! I love Italian food and I cannot believe it took me so long to come here. The pastas are amazing. The sauce is truly amazing. Nothing I have had, comes close to this Italian food. The sauces are prepared... More

A great place And a fav when tired and want take out. They have prepared salads to go and Offer a small or large salad. The large is enough for two meals for two or for four people. Also, a very cozy restaurant if eating there.

Couldn't get dinner at the hotel, so Papa Dan's delivered pizza for the kids! They offered a small discount for the hotel which I thought was a nice gesture. Kids liked the pizza; we liked the convenience!

Ordered a Papa Dan's thin crust for delivery which is basicly a deluxe with extra cheese. It arrived in about 30 min. The pizza was flavorful with generous toppings. Pizza did not seem to have any "extra" cheese. Was a little disappointed in the thin crust, it was not real thick, but it was still not crispy like we prefer.... More

The Wednesday special of Chicken Picata with linguine was much better than I expected. The small antipasto salad was enough to serve 4 people easily. The service was excellent. We will go back again. We had their pizza earlier in the week and was also very good. They have lots of choices on their menu and it just smells good... More
