When you get tired of seafood Papa Rocco's has the best pizza in town. Be prepared to wait if you come at peak times. The restaurant is small and parking is very limited, but if you have the time it's worth the wait.

Stopped in last year when we were just passing through Gulf Shores and had oysters. This time we had oysters both baked and raw and the were fresh and delicious!

After a day at the beach, we decided we would stay at the condo for dinner. We decided to go pick-up pizza from Papa Rocco's because we like to try to eat local when we travel and we had heard some good things about PR's. We ordered three pizzas and picked them up. The pizza was not very good. Basically,... More

My husband and I recently had lunch at Papa Rocco's and it was great. We each had the meatball sandwich with extra marinara sauce with chips. We enjoyed it so much that we went back for lunch a few days later and had the same sandwiches again. Next time I will try the pizza. It looked and smelt great.

We were told by a friend to go here for late night food and music. When we entered, we were immediately aware of an excessive grease smell...why I don't know....but we all noticed it. There were several people sitting around eating and they seemed to be enjoying their meal. There was a man playing a guitar in the corner. We... More

We eat here every time we visit Gulf Shores-this time we ate here twice! We always order the "price buster" that has everything on it, as well as a pepperoni. They have great crust and are delicious! Nothing beats good pizza and beer, of which they have a nice selection. They also have oysters and pasta dishes that we haven't... More

Went there tonight. After seated and placed our simple order (spaghetti and baked oysters) it took over 45 min to get our food! Servers were rude and almost like they were doing us a favor. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS PLACE AGAIN! Good Luck!

We eat here multiple times every visit and we did twice this week. We love the house and Caesar salads and of course the pizza. You should try to go at 5:00 pm or before because it is really small with limited parking, but you can call in a to go order. We ordered burgers and grilled chicken sandwiches to... More

The food was well worth the wait. I recommend ordering some appetizers (the garlic oysters, and cheese bread) while you wait for your food. We ordered three pizzas, the family trio and the manicotti, and it was all wonderful. I would recommend going to this place, but be prepared to wait to get a table and to have time to... More

All week we drove past Papa Rocco's and it was busy every time. We decided we had to give it a try. We were in there for a late lunch. They were understaffed and seemed irritated with customers. We asked a question about the Who's your daddy burger and were promptly told it would take over an on hour so... More
