Family owned and operated. All employees treated like family so all patrons are treated the same. Great food and great atmosphere. Just make sure you call for reservation. They get really busy especially on weekends.

We liked Papa's Italian Restaurant and will definitely return. It is a good, moderately priced Italian Restaurant in a great downtown location. The service was first class. We arrived 3 minutes before Happy Hour was over and our server, Amy, made sure our drinks were covered. Amy described the specials and made good suggestions. The atmosphere was very Italian and...

We took friends who are new in town out for dinner and wanted to take them somewhere that has the true Prescott feel to it along with great food and service. Pappa's was our first choice! We made our reservation with ease for 7:00 on Friday night for 4. When we arrived there were many parties ahead of us and... More

I spent my first 40 years in Chicago, so believe me when I say I know good Italian food. We love Papa's. Tonight I had cheese ravioli, and my husband had the Shrimp Fra Diavlo which is spicy. Talk about real ravioli. Not stringy, but like a cloud. Their house salad with the garbanzo beans and black olives is amazing.... More

I love Italian food and Papa's is the place to go here in Prescott. I know the food is always great because I have been there many times and they have never failed me yet. What is most important to me though is good service. I used to work in retail and I always gave my customers 100%. Good customer... More

We drove from Surprise to come to our most favorite Italian restaurant. We are never disappointed and have now gotten our Italian friends hooked on it. The seasoning in the food are right on the spot. Which that is what I am very picky with. We had the priazzo -red and white and a meatball which is the most tender... More

My husband and I moved away from Prescott last year and every time we visit we have to go to papas. It is by far the best restaurant in Prescott.
