On a Monday it is all pizza and pasta half price, i had pasta and my wife had pizza the wait was a bit long cause it was busy.. It was well worth the wait, the food was good and there was leftovers for lunch....The Staff was very helpful and could make a good suggestion. You do have to go early cause the kitchen closes early which is a bit of a hassle....we had some awesome meals and birthday parties at this restaurant...it is great for kids, they could make their own pizzas and there is an awesome play area...they keep the children busy so you could enjoy a bit off alone timeMore

Recently went with my grandson, he enjoyed the playground area but that does need an upgrade. Playground staff were hanging around and did not try engage in communication with grandson. Waitron staff a little laid back, food was good, a little expensive though.

The food is very good with good service. Join Mondays for 1/2 price pizza. A place outside on the upper terrace with an old mine shaft in the distance. I have never been disappointed.

We had breakfast at Papachino's Boksburg, the welcoming was great, we were seated outside, the waiter was excellent and the food was fantastic. This is becoming a very favourable spot to go with the family.

Been here several times over the years. In January we went there for my mother in laws bday. Great atmosphere with an awesome menu from pasta to steak & lots of in between. The only thing is the bill can get quite pricey if you...are not used to eating at this type of place. Great place for the kids as the play area is very big with different jungle gyms to keep them busy. There are helpers in the play area to look after the kids.More

The atmosphere is really homely and cozy. Love the food and the service is excellent! Our order was taken quickly and the server was very friendly and welcoming. The food was cooked to perfection! Highly recommend the creamed spinach! We will definitely eat here again.

Extended family meal with 12 people. Great service from our waiter. I ordered the rump espetada medium rare for my son and I and didn't disappoint. The Lamb Chops and Spaghetti were also good as was the IceCream and Choc dessert.

We had dinner at papachinos, the outside area is great, the kids can play and they are in sight. The service was great and the food was excellent. This is such a great spot to go with the family and kids.

Hello, give them a call on 011 913 2505, they are very accommodating to reservations and have a number of areas you could dine in, the upstairs section would be great as the kiddies play area is downstairs
