We arrived on a Saturday evening without a reservation and was able to get a table. The hostess was so accommodating and friendly. We probably would have waited for a table to open up, because we wanted some good Italian food. We were not disappointed....More

We loved Papas. We had the clams with linguini and the gnochhi with meat sauce. Delicious! Great ambiance and very attentive staff. The bread is delicious as well. Prices are decent for the quantity.

Despite having a high rating on TA, this place was a disaster. The famous soup was salty and left on table. Ordered antipasto that showed up after our meals. Dinner salads were not delivered prior to meal, so they became dessert. Linguine with clams had...More

Just a wonderful Italian experience! "Mama" knows how to cook...even though the name if the restaurant is Papa's. Hands down, the best minestrone soup I've ever had. Great Italian dinner menu or try the pizza. It won't disappoint!

They have an antipasto to die for! Best I've had in years. Don't be surprised if Mama comes by with a sample of home made soup for you to try. Friendly efficient service too. My husband and I usually split a meal....too much to eat!
