    Highly recommend. Excellent food (I had the salmon), service was very good and nice place to dine. It was a bit noisy and a bit expensive, although most things are these days. Went for Mother’s Day, was able to get a reservation and was seated promptly. If you go, order the fried cheese…the table next to us order it and it was very exciting.

    We enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch for 11 at Papapollonis. Our outdoor table was quite nice and sheltered from the wind and sun. The halibut, shrimp and avocado salad and filet Mignon were all very good!

    Great ambiance for a Valentine's evening. Our server was great, very patient with us since we were unfamiliar with the menu. I got the chicken parm which was so good! My boyfriend got the lasagna which was a bit saucy for his taste. He said it could have used a bit more substance, more pasta and cheese, but overall a good experience.

    Smallest or shortest Filet I've ever had but everything tasted good. Nothing bad or great just good. Also new customers should be treated as old customers.

    We were seated right away and our table was ready for our reservation. The restaurant manager greeted us and sat us to our table which was set up nicely with a rose and cloth table napkins. Mood music created the appropriate ambiance for the occasion. We started with our moscato, warm bread with balsamic and olive oil dip and calamari fritti for appetizer. The fresh side salad came before we were served our dinner entrees which were the Chicken Marsala and Pistachio-crusted Salmon with capers. Both dishes were consistent and deliciously paired with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Obviously it’s not our first time at this restaurant. They used to have a branch in Oakdale before they moved here in Modesto. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Both the manager and our server checked on us often. We shared a generous slice of the cheesecake with raspberry drizzle for dessert. We were full and happily satisfied. It was nice to have a local, cozy restaurant to go to especially for Gal-entine’s dinner. We were glad that they are in OpenTable for reservations because it was getting busy later on. Their price is just what you would expect if you’re looking for quality and value for your money.

    The food was tasty. The steak was prepared to order. The vegetables were a little over cooked. The server seemed unengaged. She got better as the evening went on.

    My wife and I decided to try a new place for her birthday and we were very happy with the outcome. The service was great and food was delicious!! We will most definitely be putting this on our list to revisit. My wife had the Spicy Garlic Chicken and I had the Chef’s Choice (Italian Sausage, marinara, and Penne Pasta), both dishes ingredients were evenly balanced in flavor and the freshness was very evident. Overall very nice experience!!

    Good comfort food. Consistent, but occasional changes to the menu, or more exciting specials would be welcome.

    We went for New Years , this place is outdated & tacky for the price , I would go elsewhere. That being said the staff were polite and professional, it’s just unfortunate the place is a dump , (definitely not a fine dining experience)

    Very friendly service. The bread, salmon and pastas are excellent. My niece did not care for the gyro. Nice place to go to dinner with family or friends.

    My husband and I had a nice dinner at Papapolloni before attending a show at the Gallo Center. Our table was ready and we were promptly seated at a cozy booth when we arrived. The wine list wasn't extensive but there was a variety from which to choose at varying price points. My husband ordered the seafood ravioli and said it was amazing! My meal was also delicious and left no room to enjoy something from the dessert menu. The service was just a bit slow though it was obvious that they were short staffed like every other pandemic-affected business....everyone was multi-tasking and did a great job during a busy dining rush. Overall, we're glad we chose to dine at Papapolloni Mediterranean Bistro and would recommend it for a date night or an evening with friends.
