Papa Joe’s

The number of times this establishment has been recommended as a date-night location, I couldn’t count if I tried. If you’ve been to Akron for any amount of time, you’ve heard the name Papa Joe’s, the family-run restaurant with a southern Italian menu. Picture an intimately lit, romantic dining spot. The image is probably pretty close to Papa Joe’s. This is not the venue for last-minute Valentine’s Day reservations, you’ll want to plan ahead if you stand a chance. 

Papa Joe’s Wine Shop retails bottles at every price point. Similarly, the Italian Market nestled in the left side of the restaurant, offers a variety of ingredients and oven-ready entrees.
