Sometimes you just want to get takeout and not cook...the pizza is great. The wings, although order from third party cooked, they are not bad (we actually love the wings 😃). If you are up for pizza, soda and bread sticks, don't expect gourmet wings. The pizza is actually great in my opinion. Not too greasy, not dry (pizza without... More

Food is always tasty, some meals are better then others. Haven't had a bad meal in there in 14 years. I would recommend.

I am a frequent visitor to Papa Z's when I am in the area. While the "regular" food is good but not so inventive, I highly recommend the pastas and the specials. This is where the chef really shines. You can get quite good food, like steak and more in special dishes, for a great price. You can also substitute... More

Nice family restaurant with decent prices. Will agree with previous review that some dishes can be a bit oily, but taste is very good. Love the rigatoni with pesto with chicken. Worth a stop

Our family all got together to celebrate and have dinner. The service was just as excellent as the food. The restaurant was very clean and comfortable and the food came out HOT. I highly recommend this family owned establishment for all of your dining occasions. You will not be sorry.

Below average place. Inside seemed like it would be a nice little family friendly place. Food was sub-par. Pizza was very much below average--there was only about half as much cheese as was needed and some spots didn't even have enough cheese to cover it.

I only ate here once and never went back, maybe they have some good dishes but for the dish I had I definitely could have made better at home. I ordered pasta with vodka sauce, pasta was covered in butter oil which prevents sauce from sticking, vodka sauce tasted like it came from a jar, and the peas in it... More

I was hungry for a good crunchy italian grinder, so Im thought I'd try Papa Z's in Colchester. I ordered the eggplant and the chicken cutlet grinders. The bread was pretty good, heated in the oven to a crunchy exterior. The interior of the bread somewhat dissolved when in contact with the sauce though, which I found to be not... More

Great pizza with wonderful crust. Nothing was left behind on our table. Service is good and any wait is absolutely worth it.
