We have been going to Papa J's for years. The food is always good. They have the best pizza and Calzone's anywhere and we love their homemade spegetti. You go to dinner to have a relaxing experience and so many restaurants rush you

My family and I are regulars here and as I was looking for the web address I came upon a previous review. I was shocked by this beerman's negativity, lack of education, unjustified assumptions and poor palate! He must've been drunk! I wanted to clear a few things up. This place is still owned and operated by the Giraldi family. Their sauces and meats are homemade and are always great. The pizzas and calzones are the best in town and we've always had attentive and friendly service. Try it yourself to see why they've been in business for so long! Yum!

The maetballs and sausage are always different, very dry and seem to come from a food service (frozen). The sauce is never the same any two times. Don't know if it's canned or if they have different cooks making it daily. Also a little pricey for spaghetti and meatballs. The service is so so. They should have kept it on Lowell it seemed more family owned and operated, don't see any of the original owners at the new place. the people who run it now don't even look like there Italian.

We were so sad to see Valente's close down on W. 38th Ave--it was the best Italian in Denver for decades. We were glad to find Papa J's with a traditional, cozy, nice but comfortable Italian atmosphere, great service and great food on 75th Ave & Sheridan. The service is great! The atmosphere is great! The food is great! Some, but not all of their pastas are homemade--spag is not linguine is. Just ask if you prefer homemade pasta. Nothing is Valente's but Papa J's is in the same league. Ample parking and large spaces for big parties. It's real Italian, so it is kid and family friendly.

Papa J's is a real neighborhood treat for the north side, especially when Papa gets out the violin for the evening.

With Papa J himself strolling around playing violin on the weekend nights, the atmosphere is fabulous... almost as good as the food. From their homemade house salad dressing to the outstanding pasta sauces, Papa J's doesn't skimp on anything. Prices are reasonable and the food a great value. The daily lunch buffet let's diners try a little of everything for a steal. My family's favorite, hand's down.
