I only ate here once and never went back, maybe they have some good dishes but for the dish I had I definitely could have made better at home. I ordered pasta with vodka sauce, pasta was covered in butter oil which prevents sauce from sticking, vodka sauce tasted like it came from a jar, and the peas in it... More

I was hungry for a good crunchy italian grinder, so Im thought I'd try Papa Z's in Colchester. I ordered the eggplant and the chicken cutlet grinders. The bread was pretty good, heated in the oven to a crunchy exterior. The interior of the bread somewhat dissolved when in contact with the sauce though, which I found to be not... More

Great pizza with wonderful crust. Nothing was left behind on our table. Service is good and any wait is absolutely worth it.

Had to be one of the worst meals and service I ever experienced. My wife ordered a well done burger and it came out barley cook. I ordered blacked chicken and I am not sure what came out of the kitchen. It was more like rubber chicken with a nasty gravy on it. The waitress was never around, took our... More

Have done takeout a few times and the service there is just as bad. Pizza is descent but expensive. I now visit other... More

If you're in the area, this is a great place to grab some dinner. Their pizza is in slices (not squares) and its really good. Pair that with a side salad and you have dinner for two under $20. I prefer taking it to go since the dining experience is more like a diner than an Italian pizza place. But... More

I ordered Prime Rib. This is not a difficult dish to cook, and if a customer orders medium rare, they expect to see mostly pink. What I got was grey. When I asked for a redo, the waitress took the food away and come back with the same dish saying "that's the best the chef can do". Sorry, there are... More

The italian food here is average, if not a little bland, but I highly recommend the fried veggie platter. The service staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is nice.

I've been frequenting Papa Z's for quite some years, even when the establishment was under different ownership. The quality and quantity of the food has not changed! Their fettuccine Florentine is my favorite dish and the portion size is more than enough for two or three meals! Everything is reasonably priced, prepared well and served with a smile.
