Italian food for every day..
Appetizer: Spinach, cheese ciabatta bread. They should call it heaven on a plate. Juicy plump spinach blended with cheeses and bake on flat bread. It was hard not to just fill up on this...
wife had the filet medallions with wine sauce. The meat was well prepared, good portion, some left over went home. The flavor was rich and tangy with a hint too much salt. Good dish.
I had the mushroom pasta with chicken. The dish was served as a large portion with plenty of juicy mushrooms and chunks of chicken. Nice garlic and basil finish to the dish, leaves a pleasant smooth aftertaste, no bitterness. A Great dish.
Atmosphere: They sat us in the bar which was much nicer than I expected. The decor from ceiling to floor is Italian renaissance prints and sculptures. Really well done even if on a budget.
Service was good: The staff seemed a bit short for the number of vehicles in the parking lot.
Overall I would give it four and a half out of five stars. Really a good value.
Warm atmosphere, delicious food!.
I have been going to Papa Joe Junior's for probably fifteen years. The restaurant is beautifully-decorated and dark, though it can have a crowded feel. The staff has never been anything but friendly and helpful. As a huge fan of Italian food, I absolutely love every visit here; the food is delicious. It is well-prepared- and make sure to save room for dessert.
Get reservations for dinner, especially on the weekends. Reasonably-priced.
