Papa Dan's

Pizza & Pasta
2 Convenient locations to serve you!


Serving the Coachella Valley since 1894.
You'll see why our dishes are voted "Best of the Valley!"

When you are consistently voted "Best Pizza in the Valley" that's really saying something! When you walk through the door and catch the aroma of their simmering pasta sauce and mouth-watering pizza baking in the oven, you'll understand why we are truly the best.

Papa Dan's sauces and pizza dough are made fresh daily so everything you order is a delicious masterpiece - whether it's a regular or New York thin crust pizza with all your favorite toppings, or a chicken or seafood entree highlighted by rich, creamy alfredo sauce!

Sound good? This is just the beginning of a menu that boasts all the treasures of traditional Italian cuisine. You’ll want to come with your appetite, but if you’re just in the mood for a light lunch or dinner, be sure to try our fresh Salads, Papa Dan’s calzone bursting with flavor, or a stacked hot or cold sub made to order. Lunch specials are available from 11 to 3pm daily (10am for Sun City location), so tell your co-workers!

A dining experience is always so much better in a restaurant where the ambiance is just right. You’ll feel relaxed and cozy within the old world, New York-style atmosphere, or outside on the misted patio that makes dining a pleasure even on the hottest days.

Speaking of hot days, Papa Dan's has a full selection of soft drinks, beer, wine and a full bar (Palm Desert location only) to quench your thirst and compliment your meal. Call your friends and plan a dinner or lunch right now!
