Awful, just awful ... old frozen fish, soggy pizza, and clueless waitresses. Looks like it hasn't been updated since the 1950's -- if you want good (Italian style) pizza, don't waste your time here. Big menu with few (if any) good choices.

Food is always tasty, some meals are better then others. Haven't had a bad meal in there in 14 years. I would recommend.

I am a frequent visitor to Papa Z's when I am in the area. While the "regular" food is good but not so inventive, I highly recommend the pastas and the specials. This is where the chef really shines. You can get quite good food,...More

Nice family restaurant with decent prices. Will agree with previous review that some dishes can be a bit oily, but taste is very good. Love the rigatoni with pesto with chicken. Worth a stop

Our family all got together to celebrate and have dinner. The service was just as excellent as the food. The restaurant was very clean and comfortable and the food came out HOT. I highly recommend this family owned establishment for all of your dining occasions....More
