The pizza was very tasty from here, as were the jalepeno poppers. We ordered from Papa Ninos more than once and were happy every time. Can't speak for delivery, we picked it up each time.

We tried Papa Ninos during our vacation, because it was recommended to us. We all decided to order pasta dinners (chicken parmesan and spaghetti with meatballs) instead of pizza and maybe that's where we went wrong. The spaghetti was very, very al dente and extremely chewy. The sauce was simply tomato sauce with some onions in it. I didn't see or certainly didn't taste any spices. The bread was ok, a little too much olive oil on it, but it was well seasoned with herbs instead of the usual garlic butter. The mac and cheese bites were really good. Maybe next time, we might try pizza there.

1st off propably would have enjoyed it more if 1 the AC was working better and 2 the poor waitress had some help......poor thing did her best to take care of 4-5 tables in dining area, run register for a bunch of take out orders, and answer the phone for take outs and delivery orders! Would take out but doubt I'd eat in again!

It doesn't look like much from the outside, or even the inside, but we're glad we gave it a shot anyway. What we found inside was a friendly, smiling staff, and good NY style pizza.

If the photos of thick pizzas at the other places on the island turn you off, try papa ninos. We just had the pizza buffet, and liked the variety. They even asked us what we like, and then quickly made a pizza to our specs for the buffet!

If it weren't our last day on the island, I'd have gone back. But looking forward to next year!

Not sure why the address isn't listed here, but it's near the south/west end of the commercial area of Buxton, in a strip plaza behind a surf and turf place.
