I went to Papa Vito's with my sister for my birthday. We had that garden salad and the deluxe Pizza 9 inch and it was way more than we could eat between the two of us. I highly recommend both, the salad was fresh and flavorful the pizza was crisp and flavorful

Pizza, wings, salads, ravs are all great. Chef salad is a must try. Wait is always long. Be prepared. Small inside and really only for carry out.

Their garden salads are wonderful with house dressing. Pizzas good too but salad is a must have. Not many places to sit I usually take it home. There are other papa Vito's in the area with ample seating but waterloo is convenient for me

Food is exceptionally good; however, be prepared to wait hours (yes I said hours) for your delivery. Very small restaurant with only a few tables so you really can't eat there. We like their food but rarely order because no one wants to wait 2-3 hours for a pizza.

We have a true gem in Papa Vito's. Everything on the menu is excellent. We love to watch them load the cheese on. The garden salad is huge and roast beef sandwich is scrumptious.

Pizza's are great with plenty of toppings. Nice selection of tasty sandwiches that are large enough for two meals or two people. Salads are full of fresh ingredients and the Italian dressing is amazing.
