Saturday I tried the loukaniko pita melt ($7.95). Chunks of rubbery sausage meat with soft and mellow grilled onions and bell peppers and chopped tomatoes held together with melted American cheese were sandwiched between rounds of pita bread. The pita was the thick, soft pillowy type used to wrap gyros that had been grilled until golden and crusty. This sandwich was delicious in a fast food, salty, melted cheese way. The fresh green salad on the side with baby spinach, romaine, garbanzos, kidney beans and cucumber and creamy feta dressing offered some redemption. I also liked the Greek ice tea – house-brewed, unsweetened black tea with cinnamon and other spices.

Papas’ is located on the Petaluma River – you can access it by boat and dock at the marina. On weekends, the music room downstairs, which seats 125, is open for dinner and live performances.

Live Greek music:
Saturdays, 7pm-midnight, bellydance show at approximately 8:15pm
Sundays, 3pm – 8:30pm, bellydance show at approximately 5:15pm

Greek dancing lessons: Sundays, 1pm-3pm
