A small group of us had dinner here and it was OK. The restaurant is small and crowded which is great for them. None of us had the pizza which actually looked pretty good. Most had pasta dishes, some raved about the linguine and white clam offering, others did not like the chicken. It was burnt not grilled. Prices are... More

We've been regulars at Papa Joes since discovering it a little over a year ago. The Papa Joes salad is our favorite restaurant salad anywhere. Every soup we've tried has been excellent. My son and I think they make the best pizza in Cape Coral. Their pasta dishes are huge and very, very tasty. Everyone working there is friendly and... More

We had a very good experience here. There were four of us, we enjoyed a Brooklyn style pizza (thin crust) as an appetizer. The salads were fresh and included with entree; soup or salad. The gnocchi in Alfredo sauce with chicken was very good, nice and creamy. The chicken Maria was very good served with a side of pasta. We... More

A total winner from beginning to end. A family run restaurant with fab food, great service, huge portions, and the most delicious pizza I can remember having. Always busy, but not too busy and absolutely worth the short wait it may take to get in. No worries, the in and out time is fast as hungry diners hurriedly wolf down... More

Visiting relatives on the cape we frequently dine at Papa Joe's for their salad (papa joe's salad is a meal in itself) and pizza (we always ask for thin, not eddie thin). It is always consistent and a must for at least one of the dinners when we are in town. The owner is visible and often stops at the... More

Small family owned restaurant. Good food (Stracciatella soup is delicious), good portions. You can eat in, take out or have it delivered.
