We love Papa Vino's. First time I've ever had a complaint. The steak in the Sizzillini was grissly, but the server brought out a fresh dish of steak, so I was pleased. The server was very attentive and friendly. They could not make us a Golden Cadillac or Grasshopper, which surprised me.

Quality of food seems to have declined from pre-pandemic days. Three out of four of us were disappointed in the quality of our meals. Margherita pizza had little cheese and too thick tomato slices. The zucchini noodles with shrimp were very runny - lots of water in the dish. I asked for no hot pepper flakes at recommendation of server but it was bland with none at all. Lasagna was also bland. But the pork chops were good! Used to go there often pre-pandemic and was always good so hopefully just a temporary issue.

Loved the evening at Papa Vino’s. Met a friend to celebrate Christmas. We hadn’t seen each other in months. It was wonderful not to be rushed off as we were there for quite a long time. Our server (Alex) was wonderful….very professional and courteous. Food was perfect and so was the evening. Thank you for allowing us to stay, eat, drink wine, and “catch up” for as long as we wanted! It was delightful and will definitely brag to friends!

We were in town for the game and to see our son; got the wiggly table that vibrates ( not kidding) and our sweet waitress moved us over to another; great service.

前菜は美味しかったです。
が、メインのエッグプラントパルメジャンは、なぜか真っ黒のオーバークック。サーバーは料理がどうであるか?チェックにも来ない、追加のパルメザンチーズが要るか?も聞きに来ない、持ち帰りのboxのオッファーもない。
高評価を見てわざわざ行ってみましたが、おそらく1度の訪問で十分か、と思います。

Pros: Great food! Best Italian we have had in three years in South Bend area.

Cons:
Reserved via Open Table and specified it was for two birthdays. Very slow (had to ask twice) for silverware and bread plates for appetizers to all place settings at the table. During meal, apparent that waitress was not aware of the birthday request on Open Table. Lackluster effort for two birthdays at one table. Basically set down a box with two cannolis in it and walked away. Not a big deal but you should double check any special requests made on OT.
