Welcome to Papa Joe's!

Italian Restaurant in Akron, Ohio

From Our Family to Yours

The Iacomini family has been in the restaurant business since 1932. We are celebrating our 34th anniversary in the Merriman Valley with the 4th Iacomini generation. Our Italian restaurant in Akron offers an authentic and robust menu of fresh fare.

Our family at Papa Joe's Iacomini's invites both you and your family to a traditional Italian dining experience. We are known for our diverse menu fueled by the freshest seafood, center-cut USDA choice steaks and chops, as well as our authentic Italian cuisine. We pride ourselves on consistency in our day-to-day operations to provide you with the excellence in dining that you deserve. It is through this consistency dating back to 1932 that we have been proud enough to serve the Greater Akron Area for over 80 years!

We are in close proximity to Weathervane Playhouse, Stan Hywet Hall and Garden, and Blossom Music Center! We look forward to providing you and your family the delicious and memorable experience that cultivates from the traditions of the Iacomini family.
