Our weekly Romeo Group (Retired Old Men Eating Out) from The Villages had a great meal today. Food was excellent, the Pasta Fagoli brought me back to my days in Naples, Italy, and I would highly recommend.

First, I must say that the staff was very nice. I had the Chicken Parm with Penni/Vodka sauce. The chicken was cold and covered with what tasted like turkey stuffing. The vodka sauce was very watery and VERY salty. I was traveling from Tallahassee to...More

Papa Joes does many things well. We often order their pizza to pick up and take home. If you order the spaghetti and meatballs you will be surprised that the meatballs are the size of baseballs. As for us we each order a side salad...More

Papa Joe"s Italian Restaurant has been a family tradition for 30 years. Papa Joe has personally constructed a diverse menu to fit anyone and everybody's taste buds, and each dish is prepared to order 'justa for you'. Whether you are looking for an aged tender steak, fresh seafood, or are in need of a carb fix, we got it! From the beginning, Papa Joe has prided himself in using the freshest and most whole ingredients available. In fact, many of the herbs we use are picked fresh from our herb garden and all of our dough is made on premises with a healthy blend of semolina and stone ground wheat. Cheers!
