They always impress me. Excellent food, great service, and so friendly. I always say I'm getting something different but always order the Chicken Parm. So So good and plenty of it. Home made bread is always the best.

Thank you very much for leaving a candid review. We are very sorry if the quality of your visit was affected by our staffing shortage. We work very hard to staff our restaurants the best we can but finding good, new employees who want to work is extremely difficult right now. Mother's Day weekend is also traditionally our busiest weekend of the year and we promise we did the best we could. We appreciate your support and hope to see you back soon!

We have been here several times and it has never disappointed. Having been stuck at home like many others it was a joy to go out with the same friends we usually dine with. I had reservations and asked for a specific area and got exactly what I asked for. Great food, wonderful service. A return trip in the future.

Reserved this table for 2 a month in advance for our anniversary. Ended up getting a makeshift table for 6 with sticky tablecloth in the enclosed patio room that parties are in. Noisy. Overpriced. Drinks weren’t all that great. Quite disappointed to say the least. Won’t be coming back any time soon.

The food is always good and the servers area always nice. They have a good variety of dishes to choose from (and they have true spicy sausage, which makes me happy). I wish they could expand their bar drinks--I would love a negroni before dinner--and it's Italian after all. But their martinis are pretty healthy portions.

It was our first visit to Papa Vinos. We enjoyed our time at the restaurant overall. The hostess skipped our reservation and then stated she thought we were dining in the bar. Considering it was my wife’s birthday and Valentine’s Day we did not appreciate that one bit. We did find the wait staff in the bar were delightful. The papa trio app was tasty and the lasagna was excellent however the Shrimp & Scallop Scampi was extremely bland and we would not recommend ordering this dish. Not the experience we had hoped for overall but we will give the restaurant and other try on a normal day.
