We went to try out the new location of Papa Mazzotti's after having been fans of their original place on 104th & Colorado. The new restaurant is hidden in East Lake, CO & is adorable. It was delightful to see Elizabeth, the daughter of the original owner, Teri, who is running the operation with her sister now. The food was... More

Meals include soup or salad and bread and butter, and there is a wide variety of options for entrees. Although I have tried (and enjoyed) many options, my favorite is their homemade spaghetti with both meatballs and sausage.

This place is NOT a place you're likely to find randomly, just driving around town, but it's worth finding nonetheless! I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and I especially loved the flavor of the sausage and the meatballs. Lasagna was very good, as was the chicken parm. The only thing I didn't think was great were the spaghetti noodles. They weren't... More

This place is hidden away and I would have never known it existed if it wasn't for a friend telling me about it. It is a very small restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Probably a good date place. The service is excellent. I ordered lasagna which comes with soup or salad, I had salad and it also comes with a... More

This was our 2nd visit, since they moved (some time ago), from Colorado Ave. Small, homey, with 12 tables. SO, they can fill up fast. In the older part of "Eastlake". With no GPS, get good directions. Good parking. We first tried them on the advise of a 'fan'. Found the Pasta, to be excellent. Menu selections are ample. My... More

It was 3:30PM on Friday 10/17/14, we were the only customers there and one waitress to handle 2 people. There was a table behind us that still had dirty dishes and trash on the floor. This never got cleared during our entire visit. Never an excuse for not clearing tables or floor! The table bread was so-so, nothing you would... More

We love this local family restaurant. You need to get there early because it is small and fills up fast. The homemade spaghetti noddles are great and the sausage has a nice kick. The staff is friendly and quick to serve.

Visited Papa Mazzotti's last night at around 7:30. Very small dining room that was full; had a 12 minute wait. Decor was OK (I don't go out to eat for the decor). Our waitress was quick but curt. Drinks were served in large plastic Coke glasses - good size - with lots of ice. The salad that came with our... More
