"When my husband and I first walked into the restaurant, we were taken by the art work hanging on the walls. We were told by the host it was all painted by his father. The paintings are eye-catching. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the service reflect the same. However, we wish we can say the same for the food. The meatballs were not any better than the local pizzeria and yet it was three times the price. The chicken and mushrooms with puff pastry tasted good, but not great. However, the mushroom with truffle oil was pretty good."

"We tried Pappos b/c it was featured on a TV show. We tried what was recommended on the show. The Little Gems Caesar salad was good but not outstanding. My husband liked the Fried Olives stuffed with Anchovies. After our waitperson cleared those plates, she said our entrees would be just a few minutes. Those few minutes became half an hour, during which she checked with us twice, apologized but offered no explanation why the entrees were taking so long. My husband had the duck cassoulet which he liked. I had the fried chicken sandwich. The chicken was moist and tender, and the slaw that came with it was excellent. It came on a brioche bun which was better after I toasted leftovers the next day."

"My boyfriend and I got a gift certificate for Christmas to Pappo, and I'm so glad we did, everything was perfect, our table, our server, the food, the timing of courses... I also really liked the fact that it was a really nice place but you could dress casually and the service was perfect not snobby, pushy or over the top."

"Pappo is a great choice for a quiet dinner for two or a small celebration. The ambience is warm and inviting, and the food is first-rate. The menu changes regularly, and there is always something intriguing. Their duck risotto is delicious."

"We dined at Pappo with another couple from SF to show off our little town. Park street was vibrant for a Thursday night yet they easily found parking in the structure behind the Alameda Theatre. We walked from our home to The Hobnob for a cocktail before dinner and then to Pappo to meet them. The menu was not huge but covered all the bases and the Prix Fix that evening was excellent. We gave our guests a tour of the Theater lobby after dinner and if we had not gorged ourselves at dinner could have had some ice cream at Tuckers around the corner."

"Market-fresh ricotta and avocado to start. Baby spinach celery root bisque with Alsatian white. Citrus marinated lamb chops grilled to perfection paired with "Chateauneuf du Pappo" from Sonoma."

"I'm new to Alameda and this was my first time dining at Pappo. I had the hamburger and my friend had one of the specials. We both enjoyed our meal as well as the wine. The service was outstanding. We had a 6:15 reservation and we were seated promptly. We shared the bread pudding for dessert and it was delicious. We we will return."

"I have been a dedicated fan and patron of Pappo since it opened several years ago. The last 2 meals I have had have left much to be desired. Last Saturday, post movie, my friend and I had a 730 pm res. He had never been to Pappo and I had praised the hamburger as being the best in town, although it wasn't as good the second to last time I was there (much smaller, less tasty, and underwhelming overall). first off, they were out of iced tea. Secondly, they were out of the Morrocan duck leg and Rockfish entrees, so I settled on the Gnocchi. My friend had the burger, which was undersized and ordinary. I did enjoy the Caesar salad however. he had the Beets, but felt ripped-off having paid $10 for 12 small wedges of beet atop a white cream sauce. I went home with stomach cramps that came from the rich Gnocchi sauce (that I shouldn't have ate), but alas my first and second choice were unavailable at 730 pm on this Saturday evening. I am sorely disappointed."
