I should not have been surprised, its well ranked and lived up to its billing. We went to try the pizza. Matt our waiter was excellent, nice young man who knew his stuff.

Very impressed by the food and service of Papa's Italian Restaurant. I ordered the baked gnocchi with meat sauce and my wife ordered the broccoli Alfredo with rigatoni. Both meals were delicious and fairly priced. I will come back if ever in the area.

Don't think we can visit Prescott without a stop at Papa's. Old school Italian done well. Service is exceptional, friendly and attentive. It's a very busy spot with mix of locals and tourists. Be sure to make a reservation; a few days ahead for weekends. The servings are large and prices reasonable. While wine list is not extensive, it is... More

We came to Prescott to have a weekend getaway. Really didn't have any set plans. Decided to try Papa's on a Saturday night with no reservations. The place was busy. Fortunately we were able to get a table. Food was really good. Prices on the menu and wine list were very reasonable. Easily see why they have a high ranking... More

Papa's is a great place to enjoy authentic Italian food. My husband took me there for dinner; the atmosphere, service & especially the cheesecake (made fresh, from a family recipe daily) were all delicious! In downtown Prescott, it's the perfect location to take a stroll around the courthouse, which is a historical landmark, built when Prescott was the capital of... More

We love Papa's Uptown, but lately every time we show up, there is a very long wait OR we are turned away. I usually only eat out on Friday nights, & since I work on Friday I never think to make a reservation, just want to go once I get out of work. If you can remember to make a... More
