This food reminds me of Sunday dinners with the family, the pizza is delicious. Could use some training in the waitress department we could tell she was a long term worker but very misrable. Other than that we loved every minute of our dinner there .

Thanks to favorable reviews by other TripAdvisor members, I chose Papa Joe's Ristorante & Pizzeria as my lunch place in Pittsfield. It was a great choice! I went for the Lunch Buffet at $7.99. As I approached the walk-up counter, I overheard two gals commenting on their experience with the Lunch Buffet. Both said it was so good that they... More

Meatballs are their homemade and great...I also ordered a loaf of their Italian bread and sliced it and toasted it every morning with my coffee in... More

Really enjoyed our thin crust pizza! Papa Joe's is very casual and the service was friendly and good. It was obvious that there were returning customers, which is always a good sign!! There were a lot of choices on the menu as well, even the pizza selections.

My sister was hungry and it was approaching lunchtime so we decided to go to Papa Joes... really awesome Italian food.. love the BBQ Chicken Pizza, regular pizza with a ton of toppings, meatballs are excellent and chicken parmesan is good too... delicious and freshly made!! Give it a try... old school homemade Italian taste!

Though the atmosphere is non existent the food is usually good. They serve the best bread with their meals, plus a tasty basic garden salad. The pasta dishes with the red or alfredo sauces are top notch. Do not order their prime rib though, the one I had was about 40% fat and not worth the money. Other than that,... More

Very satisfied...plenty of GOOD Italian food without sticker shock...Friendly, attentive service but not intrusive...Atmosphere leaves a little to be desired but the food makes up for it X 2. Beer and vino too!!!

Although this restaurant has NO atmosphere, it is what it serves that counts. Whether eating in or take out, the food is old fashioned and consistent. The thin,hand tossed chicken pesto pizza is the best pizza we've had, anywhere! Every dish we've had over the last 20 years has been well made and tasty!

Papa Joe's offers all types of Italian food, from pizza to complete dinners and all in-between. This trip, we chose a pizza with thick crust, one of three offered (thin, thick and deep dish). My wife spent the waiting time selecting other items to try on future trips. Good food, good value and very pleasant service. We'll go again!

Thank Lou Y
