Looking for a casual mom & pop laid back Italian eatery? I revisited one of my favorites last Friday night. I went with a friend who had never been there before.I was a regular for many years & enjoyed sharing with out of towners and friends. Ihaven't been there for many years since I moved to another city. I was... More

We chanced upon this restaurant while walking along 2nd St. We went inside and I personally found the interior so inviting. To some it might be basic with red checkered tables and dark interior but for me it felt like I was invited to someone's home for a meal. We ordered pizza and the Luis pasta. It was excellent. Service... More

We are locals, and have tasted at all the local restaurants in Belmont Shore. Papaluccis is by far the best Italian restaurant in the South Bay area. I love their Linguini and clams, best priced dinner on the Menu at $14. Love, love, love their Caesar Shrimp Salad. All other dishes are wonderful and full of garlic. You must try... More

It's really pretty good Italian food, but I've been there many years ago and remembered it being a better atmosphere. The food could qualify as finer dining, but the atmosphere says pizza with the checkerboard tablecloths. It wasn't too busy in a very busy area, which made me wonder if it was more popular many years ago. The server was... More

Bryce was our great server. I had the Pepe Salad and a side of Meatballs. Very tasty. My husband ordered the Meatball Sub and he loves it. This is a go to spot for that Sandwich and the price is right at only $9.99. Try this locals spot!

I was surprised at how affordable this place was, especially in this area. The food was great as well. My kids raved at the pizza and the pasta I had was excellent. The portion sizes are quite large. The service was great and our server was very friendly. My kids wanted to go back again the next night! I'm glad... More

Good service and food. My husband had the seafood pasta and he loved it. I had he salad combination and pizza and loved it too. Looking forward to going back and trying more dishes. The prices for food were good but the alcohol was expensive compared to Happy Hours in the same area at the time we ate.Wish they had... More

My husband and I went for a late lunch. Bryce was our excellent server. He allowed us to try the wine before we bought it. We chose a Paso Zin that paired well with the food. We had a Pepe Salad and it was wonderful with pasta and Romaine lettuce. I highly recommend you try it. The Blanco bread is... More

Went to dinner with 15 business associates. Service was great. We were allowed to seat before all of our party arrived. Ordered beer and wine (no hard alcohol available). Great Central Coast - Paso Robles wines at excellent prices. Next came great bruchetta, anti pasto and garlic bread bites. I had the Henry Special - wonderful fresh shrimp cooked with... More
