Their pasta dishes are worth recommending. Over all the kitchen is not putting their best. My pepper sauce for meat was not home made, I could taste "powder". The pricing is little over average, so you would expect little better. Service was very attentive and polite.

We had very quick service and the drinks were delivered quickly. The server was quite helpful when asked questions of the local area. The prices were fair and the atmosphere was relaxed.

Been at this place two times by now. Both times i went here for their fresh homemade seafood ravioli which is really good. It is a good place to have a glass of wine and something to eat in a nice atmosphere

I visited Papannis one evening in early January with my family and had the most perfect meal. We were made to feel welcome and the service was friendly and extremely efficient. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced. If you like Italian food then Papannis is definitely worth a visit.

Very nice ambience. Pasta with seafood was tasty and served in good portion. The carpaccio was excellent and dessert was OK. The two waitresses are incredibly nice and professional. We really enjoyed it.

Probably the best family run restaurant on the island! My wife went for a mixed seafood soup, whereas I went for the Caprese. As main we both took a medium cooked tuna steak which was simply delicious.
