Unless you are a local, get directions. Very reasonable prices. Sizable servings. Veal available upon request. Not great but good for the price. Friendly service. Good value!

Worth the drive to come to this restaurant. Has great atmosphere and best of all very good food. Best advice come early because by 6 p.m. The crowds start to get heavy during tourist season.

Great drinks from the bar! Had the salad with sirloin tips and chicken with a basalmic vinaigrette. Very tasty and well presented. Also had the sausage and peppers with spaghetti. Basic Italian fare, simple but flavorful and tasty!

The is one Italian restaurant I will be going back to. The sauce is to die for - so flavor full but not acidic. The portions are huge. I cannot think of a negative thing to say.

Papa Joe"s Italian Restaurant has been a family tradition for 30 years. Papa Joe has personally constructed a diverse menu to fit anyone and everybody's taste buds, and each dish is prepared to order 'justa for you'. Whether you are looking for an aged tender steak, fresh seafood, or are in need of a carb fix, we got it! From the beginning, Papa Joe has prided himself in using the freshest and most whole ingredients available. In fact, many of the herbs we use are picked fresh from our herb garden and all of our dough is made on premises with a healthy blend of semolina and stone ground wheat. Cheers!
