Delicious entrees! I had the Lombardo, which was very good and my fiance had the grilled shrimp. Garlic bread was excellent, but a little salty for my taste. Shrimp in both dishes were cooked to perfection. The wait staff was very pleasant and helpful, which...More

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!
