We went here on a rain Saturday for lunch.... first timers.... so good! Alex was our waiter... EXCELLENT!. Had mushroom Pitas for an appetizer, then a small green salad - dressing was wonderful and not overbearing, I had Mousska and my husband had lamb kabobs with rice. Delish. Then we had dessert!!! We are already planning our next trip there... More

We frequently come here service is always great and the food is even better. One of Modesto's best restaurants by far. The filet is better then any steakhouse in the area. Saganaki is awesome.

Spanikopita is delicious. My wife really enjoyed her sea food pasta. Both children had chicken pesto pizza, which they really liked. Great, friendly service and HOT, right out of the oven. "Flat Bread!" So tasty!

I have been to Modesto a few times and every time the dining has been enjoyable. Papapavlo's is no exception. I went to dinner with 10 business colleagues. The locals at the table recommended it. It is classic Mediterranean food and they did not disappoint. I had a starter Greek salad which was fresh and tasty. I enjoyed the swordfish... More

I like to come here alone in the afternoon, sit by the window and order tiramisu (which is excellent by the way), and eat peacefully. The dolmates are also incredible. The environment would most certainly be romantic if that were my intention and I was with a companion.

Amazing food, service and atmosphere! A must go every time I come to Cali! The Calamari was delicious and tender with a great aioli sauce!

My friend and I met there for lunch and we both had the same idea on a hot summer day in the valley. Bay shrimp salad. The lettuce was crisp and crunch and the shrimp was so fresh it was extremely tasty. Definitely out this on your list of places for lunch.
