Never tried this place before until last evening. The pizza was AWESOME! The atmosphere is just an old pizza joint, very cool. The servers were prompt and friendly. Very good place.

So we went for the Thursday night prime rib special. Thin cut of prime rib with over half of it going into the trash can. So much fat and gristle that much of the meal was trimming out the meager pieces of meat to eat . Salad was uninspiring mix of iceberg lettuce. Baked potato was OK

We've have been coming to GS/OB for approx 30 years and today was our first visit to Papa Rocco's . . . and it was very good!

We have been frequent patrons for the past 6-8 years. The past few months have been very disappointing. The wait staff has asked us to wait outside when multiple tables were available and Last night, when we were asked to "seat ourselves" per signage, waitress came over and TOLD us to move. No asking nicely but demanding. Wait staff appears... More

We visit Papa Rocca's each time we are in Orange Beach. The food is great, it is a friendly place and the prices are very reasonable. It is THE place in Orange Beach to get the best oysters and we always enjoy their pizza. Do yourself a favor and stop in this place.

Very small and crowded tables but a great little pub for a beer and a slice of pizza. The oysters are good too.

We like to support the local family run places and this one was a great choice. We enjoyed their pizza, their friendliness and there relaxed atmosphere. Food service was excellent. There's a reason they have been in the restaurant business through many years....you can feel the pride and the care they have for their work.

The pizza and the grilled oysters here are wonderful. The place is always packed so be prepared to wait for a seat, but the wait is worth it!

We recently ate at Papa Rocco's while visiting Gulf Shores. It had a fun environment, and the staff was very friendly. We tried different types of pizza. It was good, but not the best pizza that I have eaten in the Gulf Shores area.

Thank Julesfromlc
