The best deep dish in town. My personal favorite is the Seafood Deep dish. As my title says to Fantastic to speak on...you need to actual taste.

Had dinner here. The server was great. The pizza (thin crust) was fair. The deep dish we ordered was burnt on the bottom. Be prepared to wait as this is a very popular place in Greektown

I love Pizza Papalis! This is the BEST pizza in Detroit! You will love the pizza and salad for sure! I recommend call in 40 min prior to your arrival and making your order so that it is ready and waiting when you get there. This is a must if you are local or if you are a Detroiter!

The pizza here is awesome, and unlike any you'll find elsewhere in the city! We sat at the bar and had a very friendly bartender that made great drinks! All of it made for a great experience!

We came here after normal lunch hours since we were traveling and just arrived in Detroit. We needed something filling and delicious to hold us through the hockey game later that night. This was the perfect choice. Plenty of tables available since we arrived after the main lunch crowd and it was a quiet week (between Christmas and NYE). The... More
