    The breading of the chicken scallopini was not browned enough, so it tasted like flour. The bacon in both the chicken and salad was the artificial/packaged kind of bacon. It was not crisp, but instead pink and undercooked pieces. The lettuce of our family-style salad was soggy and swimming in dressing. The soggy salad tasted as if it had been sitting for a long time before being served. The meal was kind of a bummer, and we left feeling a bit underwhelmed and disappointed.

    There's a lot to like about Papa Vino's. The kitchen is speedy, service was good, and the food was thoughtfully prepared and seasoned well. Starting with warm bread and an amazing roasted garlic oil was a highlight. Plating is nice, too. This isn't super high end Italian food, but a nicely prepared American spin from a restaurant that is very well run, indeed. The value of the food/experience relative to the cost, is why this is worth checking out and Papa Vino's exceeded expectations.

    First time at this restaurant. Using the Open Table app made this a pleasant dining experience. Excellent customer service, and serving time was minimal. Food portions were above average, but deserts had to taken home. Reasonable price menu items.

    We had reservations for over a month. I specified that it was for our 10-year wedding anniversary. We got there and we were given a table, not a booth, in a poor location. There was traffic constantly by our table and a little girl cried and screamed every time her mother didn't give her what she wanted. The drink I originally wanted I couldn't have because they were out of a particular element. I was offered something different to try that I never had before, and it was awful and bitter. The chicken that I ordered was tough, rubbery and very tasteless. I didn't even eat but a few bites. The whole experience was awful with the exception of our server who was very nice. I am extremely disappointed in the fact that I chose Papa Vinos for our ten-year anniversary supper, and it was so blah. We spent a lot of money and wound up going home and fixing something to eat.

    Just a little confusion over seating. Part of the party was seated in one part of the restaurant and the other group somewhere else. It was only after one person texted another guest that we found out we were all there and were finally seated together. The food, however, was superb.

    Our server, Betho, found the right balance of being attentive without hovering or taking too long between stops at the table. We felt neither rushed nor forgotten. Our food was excellent (though my lasagna was not quite as hot as I would have liked). It was a great night for just my wife and me.

    While any pasta is good pasta there surely is a difference between passable and tasty. My wife and I would rate our meals last evening as just passable because they really lacked any taste. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and she had the chicken Marsala. The savior of our first experience to Papa Vino’s would be the service. I can’t say enough nice things about the young lady that took care of us. She really turned “just another meal” into a very pleasant experience. Out thanks to her for sure.
