I had been to their previous location on White Spar, but hadn't tried the new location until recently. Same great food. Owner/hostess Donna is delightful. She really makes us feel welcome. Might be the only place in town that serves anchovies with caesar salad.More

The appetizers are great and reasonably priced at Happy Hour. You can definitely make a meal of them. I've always ordered linguine and clams, and it's my favorite. However, friends rate their selections very good as well.

Papa's has good food and quick service. It's not my favorite in Prescott however. We had a combination of several items and all were saucy and good.
