I found this pizza to be of little taste and very heavy. It sits like a rock in your stomach for three days after you eat it. It's also rather expensive. I'm not sure why everyone raves about this place as I just don't think the food is all that great.

While you pay for the convenience, when you need food late int he evening or on a weekend, Pizzapapalis is the most reliable delivery food. The salads are well-made and the thin crust pizza is great fresh and the next morning.

Very good Chicago Deep Dish in Detroit. We went to the location in Greektown. Keep in mind, if ordering deep dish, it takes at least 45 minutes to prepare, so don't go there if in a rush. This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Detroit.

I have been to Pizza Papalis a number of times growing up and the pizza stands up to any pizza place in the nation (I have tried pizza in New York, Chicago, and the list goes on). A small will feed two with some leftovers to spare. The only downside to Pizza Papalis is that this will be the pizza... More

The salads are generous, and the large sizes can feed 4 easily - whether antipasto or caesar [especially with chicken]. The thin crust pizza is the classic, but the addition of the thick crust and deep dish pizzas accommodate all of the preferences. The sauce is very slightly sweet reminiscent of my grandmother's pasta sauce with cinnamon. The delivery and... More

This is the best pizza I have ever had. It is worth every cent and calorie spent eating it. I have been eating their pizza for 11 years, so delish. Yes it takes a while to get your order, but when you bite into your first slice, you will understand that it is totally worth the wait. One bite and... More
