Papa's Taverna, Petaluma report w/ pics

hhc | May 9, 200608:53 PM     1

We went here for dinner 5/7/06 after sightseeing Petaluma. It's a nice Greek-Greek American place with either upstairs or downstairs eating. Upstairs is quieter with views of the Petaluma River. Downstairs is where there is a bar, live Greek music on the weekends (it's loud!), Greek dancing, and belly dancer.

If you eat downstairs there is a $10 minimum per person. We ate downstairs to see all the entertainment.

Service can be slow, but then you can just relax and enjoy the music-which can be loud.

We had based on previous chowdown recs:
octopus as an appetizer-kinda pricey at $12-pretty tasty.
pork soulavki pita sandwich-around $10.50-comes w/ salad-I choose creamy feta sauce--not enough flavor for me. sandwhich was good. Comes w/ a side-I picked vegetables-just ok.
friend had greek sausage pita sandwich-around $10.50-he choice the rice pilaf as side..he ate it all.
dessert-we shared the buaatsa-a filo pastry w/ custard inside, served warm w/ a side of whipped cream. $3.95--pretty good.
