If you have never had deep dish pizza or even if you have, you don't know what GOOD seafood pizza is, if you haven't tried it here. I love it. I mean I really really love it and I know you will too!

We originally planned to go to the Pizza Papalis on Monroe Street in Greektown, but we got there at the worst time. Legions of hockey fans had just got out of the game and the crowds were insane! We probably would have waited at least an hour, and that was after spending almost as much time finding a place to... More

I have to start off by stating that I'm a New York pizza snob. There is nothing to compare to NY pizza (don't even start with me if you're from Chicago). I gave Pizza Papalis a very good rating because it is the best pizza I've had since moving to Detroit. The crust is nice and thin, and the sauce... More

Amazing food and a friendly bartender made the stop worth while. We will be back when in the mood for pizza. Looks like great flatbread sandwiches and definitely order an appetizer.

Closest to Chicago pizza that I've found anywhere. We had a large deep dish double sausage, it was delicious and satisfied the need!

The deep dish pizza and cheese garlic bread were very good. Stopped here before going to an evening Lions game. Told 45 minute wait. Allowed us to order before we were seated, which I did. Sat at the bar for 15 minutes before seating. Pizza came within 5 minutes of sitting down. Very filling...service was fast. I'd go there again... More

Timely delivery with the salad staying cold and the cheesebread staying warm. The chicken Caesar salad had a substantial amount of chicken, and the cheesebread [baked Greek pita topped with cheese and sliced tomatoes] is almost a meal itself.
