This establishment is known for the deep dish pizza, which I personally like. The pizza are quite filling. 2 slices should fill the average appetite. I would recommend this to those that like deep dish style pizza.

Had the best Chicago style pizza and Amish wings of my life. The first batch of wings were undercooked and the staff immediately took care of the problem and brought us a second order and took it off off our ticket. We are here just for a few hours and have to fly back to Iowa tonight and could have... More

Ate here the other night with a bunch of friends before heading off to a Wings game. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Wait staff friendly and engaging. We sat upstairs at the front after originally going to the back corner where some other friends were sitting but it was way too hot back there, probably cause the kitchen is right below. Anyway,...

So we hadn't been here in a few years and I forgot how bad parking sucks around here (but what big city doesn't have parking woes?). The Pizza is expensive but, man is it worth it. Go hungry and take home leftovers. It's excellent the next day!

We went downtown for the tiger opener and ate here the night before. The service was ok, but the pizza was very good. We ordered a large pizza for 4 people and still had leftovers. Very filling. Not a place to go if you're in a hurry, because it takes at least 40 minutes for the pizza to cook, but... More

Great pizza, great beer selection, and great service in Greektown. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was welcoming. We'd be back.

Have been to two of the Pizza Papalis restaurants and tried a variety of pizzas. Both deep dish and thin crust were excellent. Make sure you are prepared to take a doggy bag home! The deep dish is huge and very good leftover too.

Not much more to say than what I said in the title! We traveled in from NY for a Red Wings game (we're die hard Wings fans!), and ate here for dinner before the game. It's the best Chicago style pizza I've ever had! Super awesome atmosphere. Our waitress was super accommodating (even put up well with my dad's impatience),... More

They have some awesome pizza. The deep dish is worth the wait, but the thin crust is also very good. Save room for dessert, their chocolate chip cookie sundae is a must!
