I and my tennis friends have had lunch at Papa Joe's for 15+ years. We always have the bean salad, rolls and a fine lunch. Besides the regular pastas, there are 8 daily specials and 2 soups which we accompany with wine from the excellent wine shop. You can buy your wine at retail and bring it into the restaurant with no other charges.
The consistency of the food and the value is unmatched in the Akron area.

Went there several years ago after living in Akron for decades and hearing how great it was. It was overpriced and below average food.

I went to Papa Joe's for the first time with my husband and 2 year old son. It was delicious!!! We had the hot pepper and calamari for appetizer and I defiantly recommend the hot pepper but you can pass on the calamari and me personally I love calamari but this one wasn't too special. Then I had the seared salmon that melted in your mouth and my husband had the trio in which he loved. It's a nice restaurant with a lot of room but you may still want to call ahead and get a reservation. The service was great and friendly. We will defiantly be back!

The food is very good as is the staff. My family often has parties in the back room and we are always treated well.
