Papa’s is busy, clearly liked by locals along the road to Leicester. The servings are enormous. While we waited for a table, we watched people approach the cash register to pay, and everyone was carrying a box of leftover food. The menu features Italian pizzas, sandwiches, and plates, with some Greek food as well. We liked the eggplant parmesan, but... More

Really liked this pizza the first couple of times I ate here. Gave it glowing reviews. We have had it a couple of times since and it has been really unimpressive. The pizzas have been really soggy. Way too much sauce. I like a lot of sauce, but it has been overboard lately. Also the crust has been undercooked both... More

Really like this pizza. The cheese and sauce they use is really good. Didn't think much of eating here after driving by, but I'm glad I gave it a shot. They have a few different items on the menu and really would like to try their sandwiches. Maybe next time. Price isn't too bad either. Beats all of the chain... More

I was feeling Stromboli, everybody else was feeling something else. Where better than Papa's where they have a wide selection? I personally enjoyed a Stromboli and Greek salad, delicious! We've been eating here for years and I've never had a bad experience.

Nice and clean, great service. But we used to go there regularly for the chicken gyro platter. The tzatiki sauce was so good I could have eaten it with a spoon. They have changed their recipe and it is terrible. Too much cucumber, dill, lemon juice? Not enough Greek yogurt. It ruined the dish for me.

We take-out from Papa's Pizza every couple weeks. I am in love with their large Greek salad with chicken that is only $9. I've had most of their hot subs which are all delicious, fresh, and leave you full. Great local restaurant with fresh ingredients and hometown vibe.

We stopped at this little Italian Restaurant to get pizza to take back to our cabin. The staff was very nice and offered for us to sit at a table while we waited on our order. It's a small place and doesn't look like much, but the food was amazing. Our pizza and salads were simply delicious! I also watched... More

This is one of those "hole in the wall" restaurants that you just know has to be good! The portions are huge and the freshly cut fries are fantastic. There were no complaints at our table about the quality of everything we ordered. We had the turkey and bacon sub, hot steak sub, gyro platter and a gyro sandwich. The... More
