Great restaurant to enjoy pasta and a good wine. A good place to go with your friends and family with a reasanable price. I recommend this restaurant and I intend to return there in my next visit to St Joseph.

Nice, but slow service. Food and drink arrived slowly and unevenly and often not hot. Desserts were very nice. The bruschetta was also good as was the chicken Parmesan. The lasagna was very good.

Last Thurs. Oct. 20, 2016 there was a group of 6 of us at Papa Vino's in St. Joseph,MI I had called for reservations and requested a round table which makes it easier for conversation. I was told that we would have a round table. When we checked in the manager was there and we were told(very bluntly ) that... More

Dana is our favorite server and she is Awesome. We always ask for her when we have our monthly women's meeting at Papa Vinos.

I frequent Papa Vino's on average of once a month and I have to sit down and write about how wonderful my experiences have been there. My birthday dinner in July (15 people) was fabulous, and the past three times I was there after that were ALL excellent. The wait staff is phenomenal and the food is superb -- especially... More

One of our favorite places. Everything perfect: staff, service, food, price. One thing they could do better is put a little more sauce on the spaghetti.

This place has gone hill so fast I can't imagine many will give it a chance again. I would once visit weekly and now don't know if I'll return. The service with the exception of Belinda has been horrible every single visit in the last year. It appears as if staff training has changed and isn't as comprehensive as in... More

I have never been disappointed when I go to Papa Vino's. The bread and oil/garlic dip is addictive. The eggplant parmesan is great. My girls usually order pizza or some sort of alfredo.

This is a nice, clean restaurant that is part of a small chain out of South Bend. They do the best they can but when I finish my dinner I am astounded by the pool of fat, butter or whatever laying at the bottom of my plate. When we take left overs home they congeal in the fridge from all... More

The varied menu has some very unique and tasty dishes. In our party the chicken marsalla and various meat option "sizzleini" were hits. The items were served in a timely manner and had great taste. The servings were ample. Having gluten free pasta is a real plus. 1/2 price wine on Wednesdays is a great deal.

Thank Michael Roy K
