Picked up pizza to go and a salad. They supplied plates and napkins for us to take back to our hotel room and the food was delicious. They also had nice seating if you choose to eat there.

Papa Dan's has some really good pizza. It is very expensive. 22 dollars for a large pie. And the pie is not that large. But it is good.

A small intimate Italian and pizza restaurant with personal service and portions that you can select as to size. Nice selection of wine and a very good anti pasta.

Thin crust pizza was amazing. Server was very friendly and attentive. Antipasto salad was the best I have ever had. Tables are close together so not a place for intimate dinning.

A small and friendly family restaurant with red checkered tablecloths. Tables are close together and if the restaurant is busy, you don't have privacy when talking. Servers are nice and we think the pizza is very good. However, when ordering any other dish from the menu, the meal has been very disappointing. The food seemed to be microwaved and the... More

They serve a small antipasto with fresh italian meat, cheeses and veggies that is just killer. A small will serve three to four people if you are enjoying it with one of their excellent pizzas. This is a busy place, well worth the wait and good value.

Eating at Papa Dan's is a tradition whenever I visit my folks in Palm Desert. We always order the antipasto salad and ask to have it lightly chopped. The salad dressing is delicious. We order it with garlic cheesy bread. This visit was just as good as previous ones. A tradition that will be continued.

Papa Dans is always crowded and busy. But its food is generic and not more than ok. Service is fine. WIne list is limited. Red checkered table cloth suburban america italian with mediocre pizza. You won't hate it but there are far far better places in the area.
