The old standards always please! Can't beat their pasta and meat sauce. The monthly specials are creative. The spinach fettuccini with fresh clams and sausage was especially popular. If you arrive before 6:00 PM, you can take advantage of reduced prices on drinks and some appetizers in the lounge.

We had a retirees luncheon there. We meet every other month all year long. We have been to many places over the past 3 years. I enjoyed the ease of making the reservation and the reminder. The menu had many choices and price ranges. There was no problem with single billing. We would very much recommend Papa Joe's to others and will most likely be back. The server and staff were very friendly.

Day in and day out this place
Day in and day out this place consistently has excellent food, great service, all in a very nice setting. We love going there when we are back in Akron visiting relatives. It's great to have a place where you can have a nice conversation without having to speak up so others can hear you! The chicken livers are fabulous. The cippino was great. All the Italian dishes are excellent. Great and friendly service.

Certainly, one of the hallmarks of a great establishment is being able to offer consistently personalized service that makes people feel welcome and comfortable. This was again the case recently while dining in an atmosphere that continues to set the highest benchmarks for a complete and pleasurable experience. We were seated immediately and provided with an accommodation that was requested in advance. From there, it was simply superb service, food, and quality. Our server, Scott, couldn't have been more kind, courteous and helpful. Thanks, Papa Joe's, for a lovely evening.

Our group enjoyed the entire dining experience. From the warm dinner rolls right through to the delicious desserts.
Thanks for an enjoyable time. We always come to Papa Jos's before going to the Weathervane Theater. It has become a tradition
for our summer outing.

One of Akron's finest
We had some friends in town who will be moving here soon and we wanted to take them to an "Akron Tradition" with great food. Papa Joe's fit the bill! They loved it! Our meals were delicious. The service was great. The price is very reasonable. We made sure we ordered some of the characteristic menu items, like sauerkraut balls and white French dressing. We will dine there again and believe our friends will also when they settle into Akron.

Another Good Meal
Returned with a family group on a very busy Saturday evening. Had to wait for 20 minutes for our table. Once seated, though, service was pleasant, attentive, and efficient. The kitchen definitely has a way with frying in the Italian style: the lightest of coatings, not greasy, squid and zucchini cooked to exactly right point. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their entrees. The walleye special (I begged a taste) was a standout: perfectly seasoned and cooked in a lovely sauce (variation on a beurre blanc?). Nice wine selections with uncommon Italian wines and modest mark-ups. All in all, a dinner that was completely enjoyable for our whole party.

I love Papa Joe's! My husband
I love Papa Joe's! My husband and I have basically named Papa Joe's as our favorite place! I love steak and seafood, he loves steak and Italian. A fabulous place for all three!

One Last Dinner
Since we are leaving OH for good, wanted one last dinner here. Fried zucchini was outstanding as usual. Fried artichoke hearts appetizer special a bit less so. I guess I should have known not to expect fresh in Akron, but the flavor of pickled artichokes detracted from the dish. Bucatini all'amatriciana get credits for the right pasta perfectly cooked and for using pancetta (flavor was discernible although no pieces). But large chunks of tomato made it less authentic and less attractive. Excellent price on Gaja's Tuscan venture, Ca' Marcanda, the Promis. Great service as usual.

There was a mix-up with the computer and our order didn't come out as fast as it should, but the staff and management apologized and comped up desserts which all of us thought was great PR. Our family loves to go to this restaurant for special occasions and it is always excellent.

If you are looking for a salad with a refreshingly different taste, I highly recommend the Piedmont Salad.

Very Relaxing Evening
This restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere. The food is amazing and the wine list is out of this world. There is also a wine room and take out area that is part of the restaurant. I always leave with a couple bottles of wine and some lasagna to go just to keep the experience going. I wish I lived closer to Papa Joe's so I can go more often.

My wife and I truely enjoy Papa Joe's. The staff is friendly, courteous and are there to make your dinner as enjoyable as possible.
The food is excellent. One of the best Reuben Sandwiches I have ever had is served here. Add a plate of calimari to start with and you really have some good eats ! Obviously, the Italian dishes are wonderful. You won't be disappointed dining here !

The food is always fresh and delicious. Each entrée comes with a nice size salad. Not in the mood for salad, they will substitute for one of their soups, usually wedding soup and lobster bisque. The service is friendly and the prices are reasonable. The wine is very reasonably priced. They also have a retail wine store connected to the restaurant. They allow you to purchase wine from their store and enjoy it with dinner. Papa Joe’s is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant!

Inviting as well as delicious!
Great place to enjoy food and friends. Anything we have ever eaten here is good but there is excellence in the Italian entrees which make those very special. Servers are helpful and friendly and courteous. Our whole dinning experience is always wonderful here. We will continue to keep this on our top 'five' favorite places to eat.
