Spanikopita is delicious. My wife really enjoyed her sea food pasta. Both children had chicken pesto pizza, which they really liked. Great, friendly service and HOT, right out of the oven. "Flat Bread!" So tasty!

I have been to Modesto a few times and every time the dining has been enjoyable. Papapavlo's is no exception. I went to dinner with 10 business colleagues. The locals at the table recommended it.

I like to come here alone in the afternoon, sit by the window and order tiramisu (which is excellent by the way), and eat peacefully. The dolmates are also incredible. The environment would most certainly be romantic if that were my intention and I was with a companion.

Amazing food, service and atmosphere! A must go every time I come to Cali! The Calamari was delicious and tender with a great aioli sauce!

My friend and I met there for lunch and we both had the same idea on a hot summer day in the valley. Bay shrimp salad. The lettuce was crisp and crunch and the shrimp was so fresh it was extremely tasty. Definitely out this on your list of places for lunch.

This is the place I take friends from out of town. No one is ever disappointed. The service is always good and food excellent. I highly recommend the chopped chicken salad, although, every item on the Mediterranean and Greek menu has gotten good reviews from my guests.

Papapavlo's offers a variety of Greek and other Mediterranean dishes which are always good. Their Greek shrimp salad is particularly fresh and tasty! Wait staff members are pleasant and efficient.
