    We took our youngest son here for his 14th birthday. As always, it did not disappoint! Dinner for 5 with drinks, $128.52 out the door. Tip was additional, but the service was on point. I would recommend a visit.

    Yummy yummy! I was super excited to eat here since so many have closed. I got the baci & prosciutto pasta purses and they were delicious as I remember. I also got the crab stuffed mushroom app which seemed a little small but it was very filling and delicious. I did have leftover pasta which I’m excited to eat later on. One of my fave restaurants!

    The chicken parm was great! Good salad and bread. The lasagna was bad. The noodles were hard and rubbery. Tasted like leftovers that had been reheated in a microwave. They took one of our lasagna dinners off the check but still kinda disappointing.

    Amy is a fantastic waitress. She always checks our food when it comes out of the kitchen to make sure everything is correct. While that may sound like something "ordinary", unfortunately many waiters and waitresses don't do that and it's disappointing. Her attention to detail is superb. This is a great place to bring a customer for lunch. Great service and fairly quiet for conversation.

    Had a reservation for New Year’s Eve. We were seated on time. I usually order the wild mushroom Alfredo. I asked the waitress for a recommendation and decided on a shrimp penne pasta Alfredo dish which was delicious. Our service and food were both exceptional.

    Excellent service as long as you can get a table. Limited seating right now. The Door Dash ringer is annoying. It rings constantly and is very difficult for the limited staff to answer. My service was outstanding but that Door Dash dinger needs to go!

    The menu is extensive, offering plenty of choices for diners with all kinds of palates. There is plenty of room to spread out, the decor is warm and welcoming, inviting a relaxed dinner. Service was friendly and attentive, the bread served with olive oil is always a welcome addition, and the entrees (both pasta) were tasty. Nice wine selection as well.

    We traveled from Grand Rapids to have lunch at Papa Vinos because it is our favorite restaurant. We were saddened when they closed down the Grand Rapids location yrs ago. Wish they would reopen here in Grandville. I think the former location was the issue when they were here because it wasn’t a convenient location and people didn’t know it was there. Our waitress at the St. Joseph location was a good as they get. Big prompts for her. We will travel back when we want Italian again Bob S. Jenison MI.
