Pizza with real toppings

Pizzas are filling and loaded with toppings. We get pizza delivered once or twice a month from Papa Dans. We end up with lunch for the next day or two.

OK, lets start off with the horrible seating. Be prepared to have your ear in someones armpit. Well, that may be a slight exaggeration but it is tight in there when it is full. Other than that, the take an bake pizza is good, the dinners are good, haven't tried the desserts yet but I have been too full to... More

Pleasant surprise! Really good pizza-sandwiches and salads at very reasonable prices. All prepared with fresh ingredients. Huge list on menu of appetizers-salads-sandwiches-pasta dishes-subs-deserts and of course pizza. They even make their own salad dressings, which are outstanding. Another real bonus, they deliver to certain ,areas of the valley. The restaurant is nicely appointed and a great place for family and... More

We've been to Papa Dan's a number of times, and it never fails to delight us. We favor the thin crust pizza, which, though thin, is not cracker-like or crispy, yet is firm enough to hold up to a huge amount of cheese, sauce and toppings. The Hawaiian is very good. We always order the watermelon and feta cheese salad... More

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 best...the garlic a little to strong. I felt that the pizza needed more sauce...however,...

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
