Good job serving a large group

I went here with a large group for a work lunch which had been arranged in advance. I didn't have pizza, but those who did seemed to enjoy it. My salad was fine, the dressing was tasty. Service was good.

Went because we were told that soooo many people love this place. Why, I cannot understand. Don't like giving bad reviews but I've had better pizza from the frozen food section in Meijer.

Hands down the best pizza in Michigan! Amazingly thick, amazingly delicious and amazingly filling. Bring your appetite when you come for this pizza. You will be spoiled for everything else.

We went to Pizza Papalis before the Taylor Swift concert. The place was very packed, however, we only waited about 20 minutes for a table. The staff there are very efficient at getting their customers served and on their way. The food was very good. Pricing is what you would expect and seems in line with the competition.

One of the top Pizzas you will get in Detroit and the best stuffed Chicago style. All the food is excellent and a fun atmosphere in Greektown.

This is great pizza! We ordered a deep dish and a thin crust VIP. Be prepared for a filling meal with the deep dish. They are located right across from the Monroe St. entrance to Greektown Casino. Did I mention this pizza is really good?

I'd never had Chicago-style deep dish pizza before, so I have nothing to compare it to, but Pizza Papalis served up some awesome food. I had the Meat Eaters and others in our party had the Bacon Cheeseburger and Hawaiian. We were a large party, and arrived around 22:00. The service was really slow, thus the reason for the four...

pizza papalis is hands down the best deep dish pizza spot in Detroit. My favorite is seafood. I've had the meat lovers which was good but nothing to go crazy over. The new flatbread appetizer is good. Would I order it again naw.

Took my wife here to experience real Chicago style deep dish. The pizza is AMAZING. Expect a 40-60 min wait for that style pizza due to the thickness and the fact they're freshly made.
