My favorite pizza, in Detroit, or anywhere else! Pizzapapalis is not your ordinary pizza. It's a 2 inch thick example of tasty greatness that makes your mouth happy. It does take a while to be served, since each pizza is made to order, but the joy of people watching as they walk by the windows in Greektown is plenty to occupy you, if the delicious appetizers and drinks somehow aren't enough. Just fantastic!

I'm not a huge fan of chicago style pizza but pizzapapalis is an exception. It's like eating a cake that is savory and I mean that in a good way. The ingredients are top notch, the dough is really good and the flavors mix together beautifully for a different take on pizza that I sometimes crave. Service, appetizers, and atmosphere all add to make for a totally great experience.

Some of the best I've ever tasted. The Chicago style pizza was awesome., The cheese is out of this world. Service was great I got everything I wanted.I recommend all my friends and family. I can't wait to go back. I'm gonna order salad breadsticks. Does that sound good variety. The place was very easy to find. The sign was kinda funny too!

Hands down this is the place to go when I visit my friends and family who have all moved to south east Michigan.  The food is delicious and fresh while still maintaining a nice healthy ambiance.  Service is midwestern friendly and the decorations top off a really nice atmosphere.  Overall, this is one of my favorite places in michigan to eat.
