I had a signature dish called the Lorenzo fettuccine and it was fabulous. The wait time was almost an hour for a table but very worth the wait.

There are so many dishes I'd like to try that we may have to come back to Brooksville! The Stromboli wasn't the best, but everything else was amazing.

Amazing place. Great micro craft beer. The fettuccine alfredo is to die for. The homemade bread is a real plus. Side salad a must

Was here for a late lunch with my large extended family. Thought the staff was very accommodating - especially with some of my high-maintenance family members! The food was excellent. Price seemed reasonable though I didn't have to pay.

If you are from an italian family or have traveled a lot, you get familiar with how fresh veal is prepared, homemade mozzarella, marinara sauce, fresh pasta, charcuteries, etc. so it's becomes so hard to find true authentic Italian cuisine. Everything misses the mark. They...More

Papa Joe"s Italian Restaurant has been a family tradition for 30 years. Papa Joe has personally constructed a diverse menu to fit anyone and everybody's taste buds, and each dish is prepared to order 'justa for you'. Whether you are looking for an aged tender steak, fresh seafood, or are in need of a carb fix, we got it! From the beginning, Papa Joe has prided himself in using the freshest and most whole ingredients available. In fact, many of the herbs we use are picked fresh from our herb garden and all of our dough is made on premises with a healthy blend of semolina and stone ground wheat. Cheers!
