Tasteless spaghetti and sauce. Meatballs had a squishy texture. It was edible, but certainly didn't pique my tastebuds.

I wanted my brother from Maine to enjoy Papa Joe’s fine food and extraordinary service. He was not disappointed and in fact raved about the restaurant and said he planned to make it a stop every time he comes to Florida. Thanks for everything.

same great food and service, miss the charm of the former restaurant but the Italian décor in the new place provides upscale ambiance.

The food was delicious and our server, Mona Lisa (her real name!) was great! We would highly recommend Papa Joe’s! Just be hungry when you go! We will definitely return when we are in the area again!

In a little town in central Florida, guess one must say it has ambience. Aroma from outside was wonderful with making of garlic bread for all customers. Unfortunately for those who’s been around, this place is no different from Italian restaurants around The Villages. The...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!
