Our dinner was an average Italian chain restaurant. I order chicken marsala to judge new Italian restaurants. The chicken was not pounded thin and it was heavily breaded, so heavy I had to scrape off all the excess to get to some chicken. It also was not any juicy marsala sauce to accompany it. The side of spaghetti had no... More

If you are looking for a middle to upscale Italian dining establishment, this is the place to try. The food was amazing. They even offer duo entrée plates if you are unsure what you want to eat. I enjoyed the chicken parm and lasagna. I would vote it the best Italian food in South Bend. The only one concern I... More

food wasn't extraordinary but the staff was very friendly. There were very few patrons at the time of our visit...a hint that the restaurant isn't that great? or just timing? Not too sure. We were stuck in town due to a car break down and the restaurant was across the street from the hotel where the tow truck driver had... More

As an animal advocate, I endorse and am a vegetarian. But, of all the meats that even CARNIVORES must refuse is VEAL! Why then, does this restaurant blatantly serve VEAL? THis is a travesty and they should serving this horrendous meal.

We live about 2 hours away from Mishawaka and sometimes we like to take a day trip to that area. We tried Papa Vino's once and we love it! Every time we are in the area or pass thru on the toll road we always stop. Papa's Salad is delicious. I've tried several of the pasta dishes and I haven't... More

Have tried Papa Vino's more than once, and just can't get excited about it. I find the food rather bland, and the pricing a little high.

Papa Vino's is our favorite Italian restaurant in the area. The food is very good, fairly priced, and offers very hood service. Portions are large, and the freshly baked bread served at table side is a nice addition. Definitely try the Papa Salad to start your meal off right.

Never had a bad meal here. The service as well as the food is always exceptional. Quality of food/ presentation is unsurpassed in this area. Make a reservation so you won't have to wait. Oh and they have a great wine promotion on Wednesdays that make Friday seem to come that much quicker!

I do NOT like pasta at all. But my daughters just love it. So, we went here for her graduation dinner. I looked at the menu, and found the appetizer with the calamari. I am from Florida, so seafood is very different here in Indiana, due to it's shipped from somewhere else. Tender, fried to perfection, best I have ever... More
