Very good but needs a few little things to be excellent. My soup was lukewarm and the marsala sauce was not as flavorful as it could have been. Service and all else was great.
We are sorry to hear that not everything was excellent, but thank you for your feedback and we are hopeful to see you back again soon!
Awesome waitress and friendly manager who came to check on us. My meal came Luke warm and different then expected. They replaced it without issue and with a different dish which arrived hot and delicious.
We were sat in the lounge/bar area. I wish they had plexiglass between the booths as we had seen in other restaurants. We were on a business trip and quite nervous eating out. Overall though a super place.
Sharon, thank you for your feedback! We are glad that, despite a few minor complications, your experience seemed pleasant and seamless!
I got 4 tiny shrimp at a high price and the waitress argued that’s normal
We are sorry to hear about your experience! We are sending you a private message now to learn a little bit more. Again, we apologize that this happened!
Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and the food was phenomenal!!
Wow, thank you! We hope to welcome you back here soon!
We've been here before, enjoyed it then and still enjoy now. The food has always good, my wife has Gluten allergies and they can handle it with very little problem.
Paul, we are glad to hear this! We always strive to provide guests with the best customer experience, and are so glad that we can make yourself and wife comfortable!
Nice menu options, excellent taste, great service and atmosphere. My only complaint was a lack of shrimp in my dish. I counted 6 small shrimp on a full plate of pasta. Not even enough for a piece in every other fork full. But overall, excellent quality.
Love the Chicken Marsala. Our waitress was awesome !!!!
Jane, thank you so much!
Made our daughters birthday very special. The food and service was great!
This is wonderful to hear! We hope to see you again soon!
Great service, great food,great atmosphere.
Visiting from Indy. A friend recommended Papa’s. Reservation made since we were not sure about availability of inside dining related to COVID restrictions. Erin our server was very attentive and explained the specials for the evening. The frozen peach Bellini was tasty with the bread and roasted garlic oil. Papas salad for 2 was a winner and plenty for 3. Fresh Parmesan cheese grated over to was welcomed. We chose the sizzling chicken and sausage special. Tasty specially made sausage and grilled chicken mixed with peppers, onions, and spaghetti noodles. Large portions more than enough for 3. We took home a dessert to enjoy much later!
We are so glad that you chose to dine with us, and hope to see you again soon!
very good food. relaxed but nice atmosphere. service was excellent
Keith, thanks for the feedback! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The bread the server brought us was stale (like it was warmed over from the night before). She brought us a fresh loaf. My friends French fries were cold. I feel that that their quality of food has gone down. Our server was pleasant. My fork had dried food on it. I don’t understand why the wait staff doesn’t steam and wipe their silverware before wrapping it. It is a decent value for the money.
Thank you for your feedback-- we're sorry that the food quality was not up to standards! We are sending you a private message to gather some more information.
Our server seemed like he didn’t want to be there the whole time. Not sure that serving is the best career path for him. We had went there the night before as well, as we were visiting from out of town, and had him and he was the same way. My husbands lasagna looked like it had been sitting in the oven for a while as the noodles were a dark brown around the outside. His chicken parm was super dry as well. Thankfully the manager gave him a 50% discount on his meal as he ate it because he was so hungry. Not sure we will be back to visit any time soon.
Wow, we are so sorry to hear this! We pride ourselves on quality of both food and service, and are disappointed that both were lacking in your experience. We are sending you a private message to gather more information and remedy this situation.
Steak was good. Pasta and asparagus was a little like warm. But, everything was ok. Our waiter was very good.
We always strive for excellent customer service, so thank you for this feedback!
Good value overall...the restaurant is always clean and dependable..
We appreciate it, and we hope to see you again soon!
Pizza was tasteless. Mushrooms in pasta dish were dried out and hard and the sauce was greasy. Very disappointed in their food. Quality used to be good.

Valentine’s night with my husband & 4 college girls. The food was wonderful & the service was great. They were very busy.

The restaurant was overbooked and we were placed at a plastic table in the server walkway. It was freezing and the staff kept bottlenecking at our table. It was loud and cramped and frustrating for us and the staff. We had booked 5 days in advance, so felt we should have had a "table" not an add in.
Hi my name is Mike. I am the area director. I am so sorry About the problem with your table. If you could private message me your phone number I would really like to hear the details of your visit. This way I can make sure it does not happen again. Thanks
Very unhappy with our experience. We arrived the lights dimmed as we took our seats. We couldn't even look at the dessert menu, and a few at our table were finishing their meals in haste just to get out of there. Getting our checks and checking out was yet another fiasco of repeated trips & waiting. The food was mediocre at best. Watery pasta - no flavor pizazz. The best thing going was the bread and we had to ask for more than 2 loaves for a table of 8 hungry people. Considering Papa Vinos is touted as 'fine dining' in our area, I was once again, very disappointed.

Went with a group of friends (6 people). We went before our formal winter dance. They have a special menu made for high school students before the winter dance. The price is $20 per meal which may seem pricy but it includes a lot. It comes with a drink, salad, main meal, cookie desert, and the $20 accounts for tax and a tip. Overall the dinner was a good experience and we all definitely ate too much!
Hi my name is Mike. I am the area director. I am so glad you enjoyed our special menu for the dance. I hope you had a great time at the dance as well. Hope you come and visit us again soon!!
The server was great but it took quite some time for our food to come out. Then three of us had mushroom fetticini (sp) and one had quite a bit of sauce where the other two were dry. The sprite tasted funny and had to have it returned for a coke. We were celebrating two birthdays and I left my card on the table with a $50 gift card in it- I called recently after leaving once I noticed and I believe Anna was her name. She was fantastic! I asked if she could hold it till the next day. I went back the next day right when they opened. I was able to retrieve my card along with the gift card inside. With the way the world is today, I really was doubting if the gift card would be there. Not that Anna would have taken it, but anyone could have. Renewed my faith that there are still good people in this world. Thanks!
Hello my name is Michael Kelley and I am the Area Director. I am so glad you enjoyed your time at our restaurant. I will follow up on the inconsistent amount of sauce on the dishes and the sprite. Thanks for letting me know. I am so glad you got your Gift Card back. It is refreshing to hear that people are still good!! I hope you had a great Birthday. We hope you will visit us again soon. Thank
