Went to Papas for dinner before the light parade. The restaurant was fairly crowded but the service was excellent. Food was good and they provided a complementary soup. Will go back often.

It was our second time here in three weeks. Both times, we enjoyed ourselves very much. The dinners include a basket of very fresh garlic bread and homemade soup or salad. The ample salad consists of garbanzo beans, black olives, tomato, cucumber and iceberg lettuce. The entrée portions are huge and very good. We have tried the prosciutto chicken over fettuccine alfredo, shrimp scampi, manicotti and gnocchi with meat sauce and melted Italian cheeses. None of them disappointed us. Papa's is a very solid restaurant as far as I can tell. Give them a try.

After 20 years south of town, Papa's moved to downtown Prescott about a year ago. The food and service are as great as ever.

We dined here recently as part of a group and had the back room to ourselves. The server did a great job taking care of us. Bread was on the table when we arrived and drink orders were taken and served right away. My wife and I both had the veal special. The veal seemed a bit overdone but along with mushrooms in a picatta-type sauce, it was delicious. The minestone served before the entree was excellent. None of us had room for dessert, but they all sounded wonderful!

We decided it was time to visit Papa's again since they've had a while to settle into their new digs in downtown Prescott. Glad we did, because it was much, much better.

Arrived early with no reservations, but there was literally only one other couple in the entire place. By the time we left they were only about 1/2 capacity...so I didn't feel too bad about not calling ahead. At Papa's, it's a good idea to do this.

Sat in the bar at the high-tops (we like the interaction. It's always a little livelier in the bar.) Music was good, bartender, Lee, was great. Mama brought us out some complimentary soup, which was very sweet. We enjoyed it immensely.

Food was great, prices are spot on for dinner in Prescott. Atmosphere is wonderful.

No happy hour (just an FYI for the people on the hunt.)

The menu is decent (selection-wise) and the location is great.

We'll be back!

I have eaten at at Papa's twice and both times enjoyed the experience, especially the flavor, freshness, style and overall preparation of the dishes. Having had these couple of pleasant dining experiences, my fiance and I decided to try this restaurant's pizza. We expected it to be good because this restaurant has already generally impressed us, but what we discovered we had never expected because the pizza actually turned out to be PHENOMENAL (the two of us agreed)! It is our new favorite (in Prescott) for the following reasons: 1. The ingredients and toppings are remarkably fresh and flavorful and markedly plentiful! the amount of each topping was beyond adequate and the size of each piece of topping, for instance the savory crunchy chunks of the zucchini on my side of the pizza (as well as the majority of the other toppings we ordered) were enormous compared to your average or typical pizza. 2. Each element of this pizza, particularly the toppings, tasted fresh, flavorful and simply emanated quality ingredients and preparation. 3. This pizza is so rich and bountiful that my hunger normally becomes completely satisfied from merely one slice! 4. This pizza has a unique taste to it which makes it extra enjoyable for us. Also, you cannot go wrong with the service at this establishment. Professional and exceptional.
