Loved the Italian Wedding Soup!

Ordered take out of Margarita pizza (okay), Italian Wedding Soup (great!) and an antipasto salad - also great! Delicious and plentiful food and a good value!

Wandered into this restaurant after visiting the grocery store next door. The spaghetti and meat balls were ok but the star of our take-out was the antipasto salad! Very fresh and had lots of cheese, artichoke hearts, black olives, salami, and the salad dressing was perfect!

We stopped by to get a pizza to go based on the recommendation from our neighbors. The restaurant itself was underwhelming...dark, floor was dirty with a bit of trash, greeting was "sit anywhere" while walking away...It was as if we were bothering them. We had already planned on take out and I was glad. We thought the pizza was good... More

We used the "to go option" and it was just OK. The guy on the phone was barely friendly and obviously rushed. The guy at the register was cold as can be. Definitely no smile or friendliness . As far as the food..not bad. We had the meat lovers pizza and it was loaded with various meats, a small is... More

Family of 5 had excellent lunch. There are 6 pasta lunch specials plus pizza by the slice. Bread is served hot with butter and minced raw garlic on side! Greek salad was delicious.

The hotel had a handout with several area restaurants listed and Papa Dan's was on the list so we gave them a call. turns... More

First, I have to say that I have never ordered or eaten food from this restaurant, however, based on my experience with them, I never will. Several weeks ago, my husband, daughter and I were out walking our dogs one evening after dark. My husband is disabled so when we go out for walks, he is on an electric scooter/cart.... More
