Old fashion Italian food. They know what their strength is and stick to it. A family restaurant. The always full dining room is a testament to the quality of the meal. Service can lag when really crowded. All in all, hard to ever be disappointed at Papa Joes.

I have known Joe for many years. My family and I go there exclusively for family functions and get togethers. Just went there with a couple from Fairfield. As always the service was great and the food even better. Their appetizers are amazing, Salads are fresh. Entrees are generous as is their specials. I had short ribs over home made pasta as well as Seafood over lobster risotto. In the past I have had swordfish and prince edward muscles.
The desserts are homemade. He is an amazing chef that cares about his food and his clients.
Every person I bring there raves about how good his restaurant is.

Had a wonderful dinner here while on a road trip up the east coast. We were tired, we were hungry, and we were in Darien. Just pulled into the parking lot and were welcomed with open arms at Papa Joe's. Beautiful arugula salads, excellent pizza, delicious mussels and best of all, incredibly perfect Italian bread (straight from the Bronx, according to our server). We got great service and left very satisfied and happy we had lucked upon this very nice restaurant. Lots of families having good times as we left.
