Fantastic Pizza in a comfortable restaurant in a safe location in the D. (Detroit) Pizza Papalis is a well know eatery in the downtown Detroit area. Make sure you are hungry when you go, because the Pizza is large and filling.

I wish that I remembered our server's name but he provided us with the best service ever. The food is always top notch and the day we went was no different. No other pzzeria in downtown Detroit can compete!
