Great location, greektown. Friendly staff. Great service and even though it was really busy, we only waited 20 minutes for our dinner. Chicago deep dish, pan, and thin crust. They are all awesome. The only place to get pizza in Detroit!

I cannot say enough about this place, the pizza is amazing. It does take 40 minutes for the deep dish, but it is worth it. My friend and I both picked up a large deep dish the following day just to bring home with us. This will be a regular stop whenever I am in the city

We were walking through Greektown and craving pizza--not promising. But then we spotted Papalis and I am so glad we decided to try it. We had the VIP with thin crust. Amazing!

Love this place and the smaller sizes if your group doesn't all agree on toppings. Having lived in Chicago, I appreciate being able to get a good pie in Detroit! Other menu items if Chicago style isn't your thing. Lots of seating and fun for meeting with friends.

Love the Pizza there! I think the people working there could be more curtious. The waitress who took care of us at the bar was super friendly and made us delicious drinks

We had a party of twenty-five people, and there was more than enough space for us (and another party!) upstairs in the restaurant. Food was well priced for the amount we received, good quality, and delicious. I think everyone in our group liked what s/he ordered. Wait staff was great, in spite of the inconvenience of a water boil order.... More

Best Chicago style deep dish pizza you'll find without going to Chicago. Clean restaurant and restrooms, friendly staff. Located in the heart of Greektown.

We went here for dinner with our children and it was a great experience. The deep dish pizza was PHENOMENAL!! We had deep dish Chicago style pizza in Chicago a few months ago and it didn't even come close to being this good! We also ordered the garlic bread- deep dish takes around 40 minutes to bake...the garlic bread was... More

Have been coming here for years. A greektown staple! I must say I've only ever tried the deep dish pizza but every time it has been excellent. Great pizza sauce at this place.
