About Us

Good Food and Old-Fashioned Hospitality

Opened in 1955, Tom’s Papa Dino’s has been dishing up pizza family style in Florence for over five decades. Now owned and operated by Mary Schwartz-Crittendon, Tom’s Papa Dino’s uses recipes passed down generations and brought to this country from Italy by Mary’s great-grandmother.

The secret of our success? We make food the way we would want it made for us. Each item starts with fresh vegetables and ingredients.

Our generously topped pizzas begin with a hand-made crust, topped with our homemade sauce, sweet and thick with spices, your favorite toppings, then smothered with a secret blend of cheeses.

Not in the mood for pizza? Try one of our generous salads, homemade spaghetti and ravioli, or 12 kinds of specialty hoagies.

If you want more than food, come visit PaPa’s Pub and Patio Beer Garden. We have variety of entertainment options including Karaoke, a DJ and live music. You can even catch the game on one of our 12 big screen TVs!
