“Most amazing food ever - you have to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Australians or anyone not familiar with Prescott, Arizona have to go to Papas Uptown for a restaurant full of charm and atmosphere. Great to be able to go to a restaurant and talk without being overwhelmed by adjoining tables conversations. Fantastic hospitality by our hostess Donna, what a charmer! Started our experience with Minestrone soup which had a fantastic sausage in it. Then had Calamari Siciliano and artichoke croquett with an aioli dipping sauce - sensational. Shared chicken with 3 different sauces - a pesto sauce, Alfredo sauce and florentine sauce, all such a gastronomic delight. Even the Mediterranean salad was fantastic....so so fresh. This was teamed up with meatballs in a delicious tomato sauce. finished with cassata cake and cannoli. All of the staff were friendly and made us feel so welcome. Can't wait to come back to Prescott to repeat our food lovers experience. Thank you to Donna and the staff at Papas Uptown.

This is the best italian food I have had in a long time. Everything was excellent. The minestrone soup was fabulous. My ravioli was really good and fresh. The bread is very tasty. Loved it!

“Decent service, nice atmosphere, average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Pap's came highly recommended but we found it average. Service was fine, bread was good but entrees were just o.k. Mine was a special of the day but was overcooked and too salty. My husband's lasagna was nothing special.

“Amazing, just amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We went to Italy years ago and not only loved the food but also the service and value of the food and wine. Papa's is the only Italian restaurant in the US that made us feel we were back in Italy. We were warmly greeted and given a bowl of minestrone soup to share, on the house. The food and service was amazing. My wife had chicken Parmesan, that was modified per her request. I had veal, and finished with tiramisu that was delicious. The bill was extremely reasonable.

“Great food and better service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Classic Italian fare with a friendly staff that is attentive, but not annoying and I am annoyed easily. We have been here twice and will return on our next visit.
