We had two medium sized papa joe's specials. They were very tasty and too big to finish! The man that took our order was very friendly and helped us with topping tips, cause we were tired from our long flight and drive.

Great staff serving a pretty good pizza. The rest of the menu looked good but we only had the pizza. We will return.

As a Rhode Islander used to primo Italian cuisine I am very hard to impress! Al Fresco overlooks the busy roadway. This is basic Italian at a fair price. Pasta was not Al Dente and veal and chicken breaded. Salad was simple iceberg. Staff was very friendly and service quick and good. Good value but don't expect gourmet Italian. David... More

Pizza is your best bet here and even that is marginal. The menu is your standard douse it in red sauce and plop cheese on it. Horrible 'token' dinner salad, bitter dressing over scant shards of Iceberg lettuce. The garlic bread came out cold, asked for warmer bread next basket was hardly better. Every pasta dish gets the same tart... More

A wonderful, small Italian restaurant that serves all freshly made dishes. The lasagna roll-ups were great. The veal was little tough but not enough to return and can happen to anyone, anytime. Had the house wine pinot Grigio and was servable. Prices were competitive and the service was great. Will definitely return.

Papa Joe's is a staple mom and pop Italian restaurant. The decor and service reminds me of many places in Little Italy, NYC. Very kitsch. We had been there before for the pizza, which is very good, very NY style. (I'm originally from NY). It has a thin crust with the right amount of crust and crunch. We enjoyed our... More

We were running behind on well eveything and were looking for a place to eat dinner. I remembered a friend telling me they had good food and we decided to give it a try. However, it was already 9pm and they closed at 9:30 and we didn't want to go in so close to closing time. So as we were... More

This place is a great meet your friends at or for large groups. When my kids where teens we liked to take them and their friends to Papa Joe's.
