“Disappointing pizza and dingy restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

I used to visit Papa Passero's with my friends back in the 80's and it was an OK place to hang out. After years away from the place, I returned recently to find that the place hadn't changed - literally: Same decor, same layout, and probably the same paint, carpet, etc. It's dingy and old looking. I'm not a big fan of deep dish pizza (their specialty I think) but the thin crust pizza wasn't great - there are a lot of better pizza's in the Westmont area..

“Game room to keep kids busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

The food is good. When we don't order pizza, we get the buffet which has a decent variety of choices. The kids like to play video games in the arcade, which gives parents time to visit. This is a good, family oriented local spot.

“Personally have been going for over 20 years”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Really great pizza! The service is excellent and the owners (who I believe have been the same all these years) are great. A great place for casual private parties! I can even recall celebrating childhood "end of season" sports parties here. Not only is the food great but they really support their neighborhood too.

“Overpriced and overated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

Too much for a mediocre pizza even considering the $3 off coupon.

“Good Pizza... But Pricy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

The pizza at Papa Passero's is very good. Good, but expensive. I suggest you check the website ahead of time for specials and coupons. Since we were moving my in-laws and didn't have the printer set up, we couldn't use the coupon (even though I showed it to the waitress via my phone). We ordered the Buffalo Chicken Pizza (beware, it has celery chunks) and a veggie pizza. Both were pretty good. Overall, it was a good experience. Just make sure to take a little extra cash.
