My wife and I TRIED to eat there today.
I think the above was written by someone that works there.

My wife and I went to Papa Pesto's January 9, 2013. The temperature was about 63 degrees. and the interior is not inviting at all. We had an Attraction's book coupon for a "buy-one-get-one-free " Italian pasta meal. I asked the waitress if they accepted these coupons and she said , "yes, but you have to order from the dinner menu and that would have been about $30.00. There are a lot of Italian places we'd go before we'd go to a C- place like this. She took the lunch menus back and brought the dinner ones. There was nothing on the coupon that indicated you had to order from the dinner menu, PLUS, they have a second coupon in the book that states $10.00 off of a DINNER meal. My wife and I eat out at least 700 times a year. We don't always use a coupon and usually go back to the ones that honor them to show our appreciation. We definitely won't go back to Papa Pesto's. I predict they'll be closed shortly, as many before them like Brown Sugar, Bela Habiba,and quite a few others have

I think they are gonna be opening April 1st. Very good food @ good prices. We ate there often and are glad they have found a location that will hopefully be better for them. They also have great lunch specials. Give them a try, you might just be glad you did.....we were.

I told you they'd close.
I was too optimistic in my guess as to when.
I gave them until the end of the year.
There are two places that will never make it because
of the locations:
Papa Pesto's and the previous tries there,Bela Habiba,
Brown Sugar, etc, and
all of the businesses that have been at the old
TCBY in Viewmont. The street beside the Shell station
and across from Dunkin' Donuts, presently
The New City BBQ. A lot have tired , and a lot have failed.
I've only missed guessing when a place would go out, once.
Just like Papa Pesto's, they were all so obvious.

"RIP" , Papa Pesto's.
You had the ambiance, when walking in, of
going a pig sty.
Why in Heaven's Name did you think it would ever work.

They have about as much chance of making it there, or
anywhere else, as the odor of flatulence being a
problem in a 200 mph typhoon.
I think not.
Like my parallel comparison?

First off... to all the people who had a bad experience at the old Papa pestos located off of Highland Avenue I do sincerely apologize however since we have moved to our new location on Fair Grove Church Road our food service and business I have never been better our restaurant is much more inviting and our clientele is faithfully repetitive. I am an employee and you may ask for me by name Ashley. with the most competitive lunch prices around I feel those who were previously turned off by their experience at Papa pestos will happily change their opinion of our humble establishment. please come get us a try we hope to see you soon.

I had the Gyro sandwich. It was great. The waitress was quick about drink refills too. Not a "fancy" place, but the food will keep us coming back, especially for lunch.(My office is only a couple miles away). Good luck to them, I hope their new location works better for them.

I was in a restaurant some where and they had wooden benches to sit on at the table. Some woman or man let out a big ass fart on the wooden bench. I thought WTF? It sounded like a bomb.

Have you ever sat on the same bench, like at sporting events where the benches are real long? When they fart, the bench vibrates! Ewwwww.
