This is a very solid dinner place, good Italian menu with broad choices. Service was good, waitstaff were polite and attentive. Nothing not to like. If you are in the mood for pizza, pasta, or salad, there are lots of choices here.

This is a very good Italian restaurant in Palm Desert! They do a fabulous take out and delivery business, but dining in is also a good choice. The menu features pizza, but the pasta, chicken & meat dishes salads, etc are excellent! No reservations are taken, but come early as the restaurant area is small and it fills up quickly.

When in Palm Desert we always do Papa Dan's. Great service and food. Comfortable dining in and also good for takeout. The antipasto salad is great and the pizza is delicious.

While visiting Rancho Mirage, we stopped into Papa Dan's for pizza. Ordered their Supreme Pizza. It was delicious. The crust was crisp (ordered the regular crust). But what was best was their service. The servers were so attentive. And the place was full! We had our glasses filled at least three times each. They were kind and courteous, without being... More

I arrived at 10:30 a.m. The restaurant opened at 10:00. The tables were beautifully set. I was the only customer in the place. A woman who I believe was a bus person asked me what I wanted to drink. She asked if I knew what I wanted. I asked if the tuna melt would be fast. She said yes. I... More

The place was busy and noisy but the food was good. Not gourmet but at those prices we didn't expect it to be. The place is a little dark. Parking can be limited at times of the day.

Had been here years ago and wasn't impressed. We had just arrived after 13 hours on planes, etc. and saw it and decided to go. Very busy, slow service. Food was ok. Like Marios better. My husband had combination plate. He said it was ok. I had mostacciolli with meat. It had a lot of cheese, sauce wasn't bad.

We enjoy visiting this restaurant when we are in the Palm Springs area. Nothing fancy - just good food and service. The staff always seems so happy, well trained and knows the food. The quality and prices of the food are very good. We have tried the salads, fish, pizza and other options. All really good.

First bad experience with Papa Dans. Did a takeout on 15 Feb at 6 PM. When I got home with my Sausage Canneloni with red sauce it looked a little bit smaller than usual in the container. (Like it was shrunk up.) Opened it up and tried to cut it with a fork...no luck. Tried to cut it with a... More

We decided to have pizza for Valentine's Day while vacationing. We ordered Papa Dan's special. It was the worst pizza I have ever tasted. It literally had no sauce. I researched ahead, but got taken on this one. Worst Valentine meal in our 43 years together. Pizza was below a 1 on the review scale.
