Ordered several pizzas for take out, they missed one. Pizza was ok at best, not great by any means. Order was ready pretty timely, if only it had been correct.

Ordered pepperoni pizza and went shopping at Hanover's. 45 minutes later came back for a $20 largepepperoni pizza. They told us it would be another 20 minutes....it was very busy...so we think they gave our pizza to someone else and had to scramble and make another. We decided to order salads as an add on but were told it would... More

The classic pizza was good, made fresh, and how we wanted it. It was unfortunate that some cook seemed to be giving the supervisor some lip within earshot of the customers.

This is your average pizza place, dine in or take out. Not much to praise overall. The pizza selection is good but don't bother with the chicken broccoli alfredo. It has no taste to it!

This place is run by a bunch of idiot teenagers who couldn't make a salad to save their lives. They constantly screw up orders never apologize and are more concerned when their smoke break is. The food is either burnt or wrong always check before you leave if you do go here.

This is a question I frequently ask and the answer is because someone I am with someone who wants to go there. However, I will stand firm on not going back as their food is terrible. Not only is it overpriced but when you find a hair in your salad, well, not too appealing. I know stuff happens but that... More

Well, there are some things that just don't go away and this Papa Gino's is one of them. The establishment has been around since I was three and has survived multiple changes. In fact, Papa Gino's was the ONLY BUILDING STANDING after a huge renovation that brought Lowe's and Hannaford to the site. It was amazing to see the building... More

I still wish Papa's would come to DC. Several of Laconia's finest were eating here today, and the place was full. Restaurant staff brought our pizzas out to our table when they were ready.
