Pizza, wings, salads, ravs are all great. Chef salad is a must try. Wait is always long. Be prepared. Small inside and really only for carry out.

Always fresh ingredients and lots of them on your pizza. Super thin crust and served piping hot. Great taste...a regular for us. Can't beat the price....love everything about Papa's!

Their garden salads are wonderful with house dressing. Pizzas good too but salad is a must have. Not many places to sit I usually take it home. There are other papa Vito's in the area with ample seating but waterloo is convenient for me

Food is exceptionally good; however, be prepared to wait hours (yes I said hours) for your delivery. Very small restaurant with only a few tables so you really can't eat there. We like their food but rarely order because no one wants to wait 2-3 hours for a pizza.

We have a true gem in Papa Vito's. Everything on the menu is excellent. We love to watch them load the cheese on. The garden salad is huge and roast beef sandwich is scrumptious.

Pizza's are great with plenty of toppings. Nice selection of tasty sandwiches that are large enough for two meals or two people. Salads are full of fresh ingredients and the Italian dressing is amazing.

The pizza is the very best StL style pizza you can find, though I am NOT a fan of provel processed cheese. (Eat it while its hot or the provel become gunky and sticks to your teeth.) The kitchen backs up quickly and the wait time often exceeds an hour. Plan ahead and call ahead.

Excellent pizza, sandwiches and salad! Definately worth every penny and the time it takes for deliver! I would suggest pick up vs delivery if you are on a shorter timeframe. Not alot of seating at the Waterloo location.
