Really good service and nice wine flights. Food was not bad, but really could be better. Good Italian isn't that hard. Mushroom fettuccine was oily, macacotti filling texture needed improvement, and the place needs dusting.

When it first opened Papa Vino's was a lovely place for dinner with huge delicious portions, attention to detail, and an attentive staff. Over the years it's become just so-so with smaller portions and a wait staff just going through the motions. Food is decent but nothing to write home about. You'll enjoy yourself if you don't let yourself get... More

Have eaten here several times and the food has always been good and reasonably priced. Had the shrimp farfalle and chicken fettuccini both of which were tasty. It was a tad skimpy on the shrimp and Roma tomatoes. While dried cherries are nice on salads they were horrid on Spumoni They were hard as rocks and interfered with the flavor... More

It was a fun visit. We had an excellent meal and the time to catch up with old friends. We weren't hurried at all. Great dessert too.

The service is good and the food is food. I would say he food is on the same level as Olive Garden, but I like Olive Garden. It is also Reasonably priced.

Had pizza at this place. a decent dine out especially for those staying at the neighbouring Marriot/Residence Inn hotels. A budget place - like their garlic bread with olive oil and sesame seeds dip.

I hate to give unhappy reviews but I have given this place more than several tries. I stay a lot at the Marriott right next to this restaurant and love Italian food. I usually eat alone at the bar, but sometimes with a colleague in the restaurant. I usually order a filled or baked pasta dish. The ravioli with short... More

Easy, relaxed atmosphere with a LARGE menu to choose from. The bread/oil dip were fair (boring really) but the rest of the meal was fantastic. I had the tri-color chicken tortellini and hubby had the chicken piccata. Both dishes were amazing. They even added a side of Alfredo sauce for his pasta at no charge! Very reasonable for the quality... More

The quality of the food is going down. The shrimp carbonara was very rich and caused a upset stomach, and my Chicken Marsala had a breading on it that took away the taste from the Chicken Marsala sauce.
