Small sitting area but a lot of take outs. They serve you quickly, they are friendly and a clean establishment. All food is good. Are here two times and tried spaghetti as well. Very good. We will go back!

This is a cozy venue with two small and one larger room with a small bar area. Old world decor that is cozy. We received a complimentary soup with bread to begin. I ordered the Shrimp fra diavolo with angel hair. Bountiful supply of shrimp with excellent spice and tomato sauce. The salad was crisp with kalamata, tomato and garbanzo... More

My friend and I found ourselves in downtown Prescott on the night of the Christmas light parade. We were just looking for dinner and found ourselves outside of Papa's. Several parade-watchers said "oh, you must try them, it's fantastic!" We went in and said we did not have reservations, was there any chance? The wonderful hostess said that they could... More

Had the opportunity to dine here with my in-laws this summer. They are frequent guests & reserve a table there as often as possible. Papa's is a quaint, upscale, intimate yet casual little restaurant in downtown Prescott. They specialize in italian comfort food with an emphasis on old-fashioned "customer service & satisfaction" & will make sure everyone enjoys their visit... More

After two years here in northern Arizona, none of the multitude of restaurants visited so far have proven inspiring. Many are good, but none that really made you want to come back enough to plan it. I love Italian food and women😎. Both have proven warm, satisfying and delicious. However, I generally avoid Italian food due to the caloric intake... More

We had heard about this restaurant from several people and weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The prices were very reasonable too! We will definitely eat at Papa's again on our next trip to Prescott. Make a reservation, because this place is popular.

I made a walk by reservation about 2 hours before with a nice hostess. When I came back for dinner she recognized me and seated me at a good table. The meal started with tasty garlic bread and awesome minestrone. I ordered one of the night's specials, stuffed shells in tomato meat sauce. It came out bubbling hot from an... More

The food is very good. Mama Dona is always serving her soup. The only downside is that you need reservations.
