“Lackluster at best”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Combine really bad pizza with a depressing environment and unhelpful staff and you get Papa Gino's. The food doesn't even seem that fresh and it's super fatty and salty. I like pizza and junk food but this is really, really junky. Even kids don't love it. And the service is slow and disappointing.

“Good pizza”
Reviewed June 30, 2008

The pizza here is awesome. Sometimes the staff is a little rowdy (mostly the guys in the back around the pizza oven), but the atmosphere has always been friendly when I've gone in. They're good people, and the food is good. I've been craving Papa Gino's ever since I left Massachusetts to head back here to Virginia.
