My husband and I had heard great things about the food at Papa Joe’s and we wanted some good Italian food one night so we decided to give it a try... we should have just went and got generic commercialized Italian food from Olive Garden and it probably would have been more enjoyable. Overpriced for the quality of the food. My lasagna was hard and burnt on the bottom. They charge an outrageous amount for kids meals that ended up being 2 meatballs only for my son. Definitely will not ever return. Spend your money elsewhere.
I have been coming to Papa Joe's for many years. It's always consistent. Good food, good service and not over priced. I will be returning soon.
We made reservations for 7:30 on a Sunday and was seated promptly for our Valentine's date. John was our waiter and he suggested a couple of dishes when asked. We went with the chicken francaise and fettuccine Alfredo. Both were amazing! And the Tuscan bread was fabulous! John was friendly and humorous. We will definately be back!
Very good salmon choices. Gluten free options and pasta. Great service.
My husband and I went for our 1st Valentine's dinner as husband and wife. Our rehearsal dinner was at Papa Joe's last October, so it's a sentimental place for us. We don't go out to "nicer" places like this often, so it's a special treat. The salad was fresh and crisp, the bread warm and tasty. The dinner (filet mignon) was cooked to perfection. This place has the right ambiance, our server was knowledgeable and the service was great. We will be back again!
Valentines Day dinner. Always a pleasure to dine here. Good food, great staff and excellent value.
Pleasant evening at a fine restaurant
Go there usually once a month. Never disappointed.
Went here for my birthday. Dinner was good. Server was very new. Had to ask for more wine — twice. Was overcharged. Salads were supposed to come with the meal but we were charged extra for them
The food was great. Our waitress was very good. We had a nice experience.
Always yummy! Service was lacking last night. Jackie was non-attentive and slow. It took saying something to get water refills and additional drinks. We weren’t in a hurry and it was a very yummy dinner, just feel the service should of been more attentive.
Deliciously awesome as usual!
Enjoyed our evening out at Papa Joe's. Food was delicious, wine was scrumptious and thank goodness it was quiet and you could talk without shouting over noise. We enjoyed ourselves.
We went to try their meatloaf Monday’s and I must say it was the best meatloaf I have ever had. Came with mashed potatoes and a salad. Very good value and our waiter Anthony was fantastic! Good drinks too!
Very crowded, server was very polite but stretched between large tables. Food was very good and authentic, portions were adequate
Used a gift card we received. Food is traditional Italian and was very good. Iacomini’s is a local institution in Akron and has a very classic, traditional feel. Service is efficient and friendly, and one certainly gets the sense that most people who work there have been at it a long time. You know what you’re going to get here.
Food was excellent but service was slow. Busy Friday night and apparently waitress had too many tables.
Papa Joe's is consistent. You can always count on good food and good service in comfortable surroundings.
Love their steaks! Always enjoy eating here.
Server was spectacular however, I forget her name:(
Very disappointed. Always thought this was a very good restaurant but our service wasn't great - 2 meals out of 6 were brought out wrong, pasta side was not seasoned, no butter or sour cream brought with the baked potato, ran out of bread and had to ask for appetizer plates and silverware. For the prices charged, this should have been a much better experience. Don't plan to go back.
Great food and atmosphere love the lady that served us!!
Perfect holiday ambience ~ lively, colorful. Great food, great cocktails, nice seating. Service, excellent! All in all, made for a perfect beginning to the Christmas weekend. We decided the night we were there that Papa Joe’s would become a new tradition. We’ll be back when family’s next in town!
Loved celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary at Papa Joe's, one of my favorite local restaurants! They never disappoint!
I have been a regular at Papa Joe's for a long, long time. It's dependable for a good meal with good service at a reasonable price.
We had an excellent experience for dinner. Our food was amazing and our server, Rebecca, was attentive without being intrusive and she contributed to our experience. Thank you for a great evening!
Very nice restaurant. We have been there before. We brought friends for the first time and they very much enjoyed it and said they would like to come again. Good food and good service even though it was very busy.
Our waitress was precious, very attentive and wonderful. The food is always DELICIOUS.
The food and service is always good.
