Great Pizza

One of the first pizza/Italian restaurants we visited when moving here and have been back at least once a month. The service is always top notch for a small family type place and the pizza is some of the best in the Cape.

Restaurant pretty much met expectations based on previous reviews. Went on Wed. night at 5:45, had a 15 min wait. People waiting crowded into a very small entrance area which wasn't good for waitresses trying to serve people on the patio or for the inside tables next to the door. We were a party of 2 so it appeared we... More

This is not a fancy Italian restaurant, but when the pizza is great, you can't be happier. Spoiled by NYC style pizza, this is a great place to go living down here. We ordered a carafe of the house Chianti, and I SWEAR it was never went empty! Lovely staff, recommend it!

I wanted to eat a vegan pizza that I had not cooked myself. We went to Papa Joe's for supper after checking that a cheese free offering was possible. We arrived at 6:30 PM and had to wait about ten minutes for a table. (Next time we will go later). My husband ordered spahetti with Marinara sauce and a salad... More

I have been following fellow TripAdvisor reviews for our visit to Cape Coral. We have eaten at many of the top reviewed restaurants including Papa Joe's. It was everything it has been described as in the various reviews. We arrived around 7PM on a Saturday and were seated immediately (crowded place but a seat for 2 was just opening). I... More

Two families (4 adults with 6 kids) went for dinner. Pizza, pasta and mussels were fantastic. Thank you! Great and fast service by a nice waitress.

Everytime we go to papa joes it's packed! Goes to show you they are doing something right! Their pizza is closest thing to NY/NJ pizza I've had since moving to Florida. The papa joes salad is out of this world! Always good service and never bad food!

We were tired and frazzled after a long day on the road to Cape Coral. Normally, we would just get seafood at the coast, but comforting italian food and some wine sounded really good. The place was on the small side, but that lent to it's charm. The food was very good and authentic. And you could tell it was... More

We have been here over the past few years for dinner and always loved it. We were in the mood for pizza for dinner so decided to stop in. We ordered the half special salad which was tasty and a large sausage pizza. The pizza was borderline burnt and the sauce and cheese was flavorless. The crust was tough. We... More
