About

Papa Joe’s Italian Restaurant and Bar is located at 1301 S Capitol Blvd just down the hill from the train depot. Our building has housed a number of different businesses, the most famous of which, aside from Papa Joe’s, was Dixon’s Sea Food. It is a beautiful eclectic building which we have been working to restore. The patio offers a great view of the foot hills and the BSU campus. You can enjoy sitting outside in the early morning with a cup of espresso and watch the world go by. Evening patio dining has a festive charm. We offer a variety of dining rooms, one by the stone fire place, one in our parlor, as well our private meeting/dining room with seating for 8-10.

Papa Joe’s was established over twenty years ago and has become a Boise tradition for Sicilian style pizzas, home style pastas, Italian wine, cold regional beer and great prices.

We love hearing stories from our customers about how Papa Joe’s was their college hangout; now those customers are all grown up, and the restaurant has grown with them. Take a moment to look through our website and see that we have become more than a simple Pizzeria.

In the fall of 2006 we restored the north wing of the restaurant and brought Papa’s Cup of Joe to life; our representation of a classic Northern Italian, espresso/coffee shop and wine nook. We have also added a meeting/banquet room; great for group meetings of 20 or more!

So come on down and meet the family.  We are dedicated to bringing the highest quality ingredients together with our family recipes to delight your taste buds!
