We did not have reservations, but were able to be seated. Very busy even at about 5:45. Service was great as was our food. Everything from the bread to the main dishes, were fantastic. I wanted to try dessert also, but had no room left. Highly recommend this restaurant if Italian is your choich.

We've heard for months that this is the place for Italian food in Prescott so it's time we gave it a try. My wife had the chicken Parmesan and didn't like it very much. I had the meat ravioli and while not "inedible" the sauce was funny to the point of being like a soup Flavor was OK but just... More

Very comfortable Italian restaurant. Nothing flashy. Just very good food, and excellent service. Mama brings minestrone soup to the table moments after being seated. Then Frank (our waiter) came by, recommended a couple choices for wine and off we went on a wonderful evening of Italian dining experience. Kudos to the owner, the waiter, and the kitchen staff. A GREAT... More

Food was outstanding, pasta cooked to perfection! You just give the drink order and Mama's minestrone arrives, on the house!! The wait staff (Frank) made excellent wine suggestions...we were encouraged to sample! He was attentive without being overbearing. We will go back!!

You cannot go wrong with the great Italian cuisine at Papa's. We were greeted by Mama with a taste of the Italian soup that was delicious! Then we were treated to fresh bread. We splurged and had calamari which was made in a unique way with olives and banana peppers. I thought that I would miss the marinara sauce, but... More

Papas always provides a welcoming atmosphere. Ms. Donna is a sweet woman who you can tell takes pride in her restaurant and her food. The quality is great and definitely a place you'll return to. My personal favorite is the Chicken with Prosciutto.

Amy was our waitress and she made the experience great, there is nothing that I have ordered at this restaurant that wasn't spectacular, homemade sauces have that simmered all day taste.
