We have known Sam for many years and his pizza is so good even if we are short on time we will have a House Pizza on our way through Ottawa. Check out the hockey memorabilia and have a chat. The staff are warm and friendly and always up for a story or joke.

The pizza is fine - not outstanding but fine. Once you stray off the pizza menu things definitely head south fast. I've lived in the neighbourhood for a long time and Papa Sam's was a staple but times have changed. Ordered a sub and spaghetti tonight. Premade "grocery store" frozen meatballs for the spaghetti and soggy fries and a wilted... More

This chain buys discounted and reduced produce to use in their food. You can tell when you eat there

I've got the worst chicken shawarma wrap in my life in this place. Certified. And waited very long to get this. I have nothing else to add : avoid this place

Great pizza! Let me preface this by saying that I haven't even tried the rest of the food there (and that is why I'm only giving 4 stars and not 5). I only get take out pizza. Having tried a few of the other places, this one is by far the best in North Kanata. Places like Pizza Pizza and... More

My daughter and I ordered delivery from Stittsville location. I was told 20 minutes which I thought was quick. 50+ minutes later I called and was told he said 40 minutes. Regardless, it was past 40 minutes anyway. Food was delivered 5 minutes later. It was disgusting. Everything was freezing cold. Gravy was congealed. Try microwaving but didn't improve anything....

I have ordered the pizza, chicken finger and poutine and all are very good. They have takeout and delivery available. Lots of parking as it is in a mall.

I have ordered Papa Sam's pizza for years and never had one that wasn't exceptional...something about the sauce that makes it special. Every year my husband asks me what I want for dinner on my birthday and the answer is always Papa Sams. Often Sam even delivers it himself,,,don't get that level of service in many places. The restaurant itself... More
