My family and I had dinner here for a special occasion. The service was spot on and our food was very good. I had the beef ravioli which was excellent, but my daughter had lobster ravioli that she said was overwhelmed by the sauce. Everyone else was very pleased with their meals.

We ate here on a Tuesday evening about 5:30. It was quite busy but we were lucky enough to get seated without a reservation. Food was tasty, service seemed a bit slow.

The atmosphere is wonderful and the service matched up. I had the manicotti and it was exceptional. Appetizers were yummy as well. We will eat here often.

We had reservations at 5pm Dec.27th, were seated right away, Our server Brendan was very polite and served us expertly. Extra bread was provided also. Coming back again for just my husband and myself to try new dishes! Talked with Donna, who was going around talking with her customers, and complimented her on her wonderful food(soup) etc.!

We went to Papa's for New Years Eve. This was the best Italian food I have had since we have lived in Arizona for the last 13 years. The food was amazing, the ambiance is so unique and cozy.

Just got home from a wonderful meal at Papa's, which I can still taste. The Calzone was huge, very filling, needed to take some of it home for tomorrow. My wife had a stuffed Bell Pepper, while very tasty it was just bit over priced. The atmosphere and service were great.

Dinner on cross country road trip; seeking escape from motel. Found downtown Prescott utterly charming, with a classic courthouse, Post office and may other unspoiled period building, all decorated for christmas.. Papa's is tucked into a small downtown storefront. Excellent service and atmosphere. Wife was not feeling well, which was too bad, as she should have enjoyed her pasta pesto... More
