“Pizza is very good, counter service is horrible - AVOID IF POSSIBLE”
Review of Papa Gino's

Papa Gino's
Ranked #16 of 58 Restaurants in Webster
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: Founded in 1961 by the Valerio family in East Boston, Papa Gino's has been serving the same thin-crust Italian-style pizza and supporting local New England communities for over half a century. With dough made fresh daily in Walpole MA from just five simple ingredients, tomatoes harvested on the exact day for ripeness and real tomato taste, and an authentic medley of three premium cheeses, New Englanders will agree, nothing else tastes like Papa Gino's

I go there from time to time for pizza since its pretty tasty. 90% of the time the staff ignores the counter and is socializing among themselves. i have had to ask where my food after ive been waiting for 30 minutes for 2 slices, and every time its sitting on the counter waiting and the counter help all stare at each other with this look of "how did that happen?" if i order something for pick up or delivery, the order is missing something or just plain incorrect about 50% of the time. every so often i forget how incompetent the staff is and i go back because i like the pizza, and then the cycle of incompetence starts all over again. avoid unless you are desperate for pizza. The D'Angelo's next door is the way to go. the staff is wonderful, food is great, and they know what they are doing.

I like thin crust pizza, so I like theirs. Various Italian dishes, good grinders. Good deals for families/groups. Salads are good also.

I ordered a delivery once, and I went in to this place once (this is within the last three weeks). The pizza is ok if you are into thin pizza, the service is terrible and the employees are very rude and arrogant. The staff has no food / pizza knowledge what so ever!!
I do not recommend this place based on those two experiences!

They have great Pizza most of the time. Sometimes they seem to rush it a little. When it's rushed the Pizza is not always up to it's best.

If you like thin crust, greasy pizza, this is your place! The mozza sticks arent so great but I recommend the cheese bread sticks. Older building with plenty of parking and a friendly staff always ready and usually willing (usually high school kids) to make your visit the best possible. Older building so its not perfectly spotless, last visit noticed seat was broken. Plenty of seating with a great view of East Main st.....
