I have been looking forward to a Papa Gino's pizza for a long, long time. One of their restaurants opened in the Cape Cod Mall in the 70's, shortly after the Mall opened. It's a local company that started in East Boston in the late 60's. Their pizza has always been a fave of mine for as long as I can remember. It's the most like NY style, and soooo GOOD! The west coast knows nothing about making good pizza, except for The Rock in Washington. Back in high school and college, my cousin Diane and I had a tradition of getting 2 slices, eating all but the outer edge of crust, then bringing the crust with us to the movies to nosh on, in lieu of popcorn.
'Back in the day', it was an eat-in or take-out place only. When I moved back here, I assumed this was still true. The closest Papa's to me is in E. Wareham and I don't feel like driving there in the late afternoon or early evening (not that it's far, I just don't feel like going out at that hour) so I figured I'll just stop there for lunch eventually. One day, I mused somewhat forelornly on Facebook how I wished Papa's delivered. One of my high school friends commented that they DO deliver! I called them and....OH HAPPY DAY!!!!!!!
