The food was delicious and the service was great. I love my Italian food and this was some of the best I ever had. I'll make sure to visit again next time I'm in Arizona.

Great food, wonderful service. Only complaint I have is the calamari didn't have any tentacles. If you are looking for a NY Italian restaurant this is the place. A must in Prescott.

My fiance has had the best time at Papa's. I love their food. The shrimp fradi avolo, mama's soup that is hand delivered by mama (at least during our visits), and my favorite the Cannelloni Rose. I'm drooling as I'm writing this. Only better than...More
