“Good! Had a great experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Took the family out for a nice dinner.. Great service! Great food! Didn't have to wait but a 1/2 hour to get seated which is reasonable for 6pm on a Saturday. Had a great time!

“Good food, extensive menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

We were in the area to shop at IKEA and wanted to try a restaurant we don't have at home, so decided to try Papa Vino's for lunch. We (a party of 4 women) were all very pleased with our selections. The fresh, warm loaves of bread were wonderful. The menu offered several daily specials, plus several lunches under $10. The daily pasta specials we chose did not come with salads, but the server suggested we order the large house salad to share and it was not only delicious, but more than enough for the four of us and much less in cost than 4 individual salads would have been. I do have to admit, as mentioned by another reviewer, the service was a bit hit and miss, as we had to remind our server more than once to bring us drinks or extra's we had asked for previously. But, she was unfailingly friendly and prompt to bring those items once she was reminded, so it did not spoil our experience. The restaurant is very attractive and appealing both inside and out, with a warm,rustic appearance.

“Good food, BAD SERVICE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The food was good but we waited over 20 minutes just to get waters deliverd, the waitress was realy nasty and rude, slammed down our plates of food. The whole thing took over an hour an a half.
I complained to the manager and he yelled that everyone's orders were taking a long time that day and it wasn't our server's fault. Ok, whose was it then?
then he played some game like he was going to give me gift certificates then drew them back to his chest and then extended them out, like he was giving a dog a biscuit. what a jerk. These people can go straight to hell. I'll never eat there again.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

Papa Vino's is always a good choice to dine for lunch or dinner. Their fruit Belinni drinks
are super and reasonably priced. I recommend Papa Vino's for great Italian food.
