I went here with a group of people (they knew we were coming) and it was just terrible. Plus they gave us the wrong pizza and burned it. Don't go. People are not nice either.

They say if you have to queue for a table then the food must be worth waiting for - this is true of Papa Joe's ! Friendly staff , great food, huge portions, but most people walk out with a box of left overs. Family run and deserves to be successful! Thank you

An excellent "Mom & Pop" place which is consistantly good. Whether it is their great pizza, specialities, or regualr menu, you cannot go wrong. Their chopped salad is the best anywhere.

Great little Italian with good food at great prices. Family friendly with a good menu of appetisers, pasta and pizzas however no fish or meat dishes other than pasta/pizza. Staff are friendly and the place is popular with the locals.
