“Wow! Papa's, you ROCK!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I have to admit, I was concerned when I learned that Papa’s was moving and expanding. After all, why fix something that isn’t broken? Wow, was I delighted and surprised! Let me begin by saying that I don’t work for Papa’s, I’m not “friends” with the owners, and this review is being written by a local Prescott resident who has nothing to gain by reviewing them here. Their new, uptown location is simply more of a good thing. They have managed to expand, and make a great thing even better! They continue to show the same attention to detail, the same old world recipes, the same amazing décor, and the same impeccable wait staff. They managed to expand without losing a step! If you’re from out of town, EAT HERE! If you’re a local resident, EAT HERE! If you appreciate authentic, delicious Italian fare, EAT HERE! For goodness sake, just EAT HERE! You will be pleased, delighted, and leave in the most delectable carbohydrate coma you’ve ever experienced! Comfort food to the nth degree! And the staff is gracious, accommodating, friendly, and are passionate about their restaurant, their food, and their hospitality! An amazing experience, consistently! Papa’s…you ROCK!

“Why go to Italy?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

If you're going to Italy for some great italian food, try Papa's first! You just might decide to eat in Prescott instead! Delicious italian food and warm and delightful owners. I had the decadent manicotti that was out of this world! But you must try the homemade ministroni soup first!! Everything is made fresh daily! You will NOT be disappointed!

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I must be pretty picky...hmmmm...other people seem to like this place. Have only eaten there once and did not like the pizza at all. Maybe I will give them another try???

“The Best Italian Food in Prescott!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Papa's recently moved into their new Cortez Street location and we love it! They take reservations, their food is fresh, price point very reasonable and it is like family! We will not frequent a busy restaurant that doesn't take a reservation. The service is excellent and if Mama is in the house on a weeknight, you may be able to order her Chicken Piccata which is DIVINE!!

“Best Italian in Arizona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Papa's is wonderful. The food is amazing. The new restaurant uptown on Cortez can accomodate more people and is just wonderful. We were recently there with 10 of our closest friends. Fabulous service by Jaime. Great food, as usual. Everyone needs to go to Papa's. You'll go once and you'll definitely want to go back!
