Diner Reviews
  • "The food at Papa Razzi is consistently fantastic. The wait staff and greeters are always happy and professional. We continue to dine here and are not ever disappointed."

  • "We sat outside and in addition to the great food, we were "entertained" by the colorful people of Newbury Street."

  • "Okay, this was a great find for having only a night in Boston. Sat outside on the patio - nice lighting and ambiance. Drinks, appetizers (spicy calamari) were great... the evening was going perfect... until about thirty minutes after ordering our server came back to "reconfirm" what we ordered. It was SO OBVIOUS that she forgot and could have been handled SOOOO much better (ex. admitting it, and apologizing and either comping our meals, or providing dessert). It was very unprofessional. If everything else wouldn't have been so delightful, I would have asked to talk to the manager. All in all, very good food, just questionable service."

  • "We were seated right away. The waiter explained the specials right away and then gave us ample time to decide on our order. Wine was great. One of our group ordered a whiskey straight up, which looked watered down. Bruschetta was not prepared as we expected it would be so it was difficult to share that appetizer. Dinner was great. Paying and splitting the check was not a problem for our server."

  • "I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with my boyfriend. We try to do date night every week. We had ordered in from Papa Razzis before, so we knew that we liked the food but the ambiance of the restaurant made it a much enjoyable experience. We had excellent service. Definitely going back."

  • "My mom flew in for the weekend, and on the spur of the moment decided to head to Papa Razzi on a Saturday night. It turned into one of those rare dinners out where things just fell into place — a perfect little table for three on the front patio, comfortable temperatures, delicious wine and food, staff that were kind and welcoming — that quickly became way more than the sum of its parts. We'll be heading back often!"

  • "It was a such good quality and price few years ago... Now it is more expensive and the food is average low quality including the size of the plate. They were famous for bread sticks and focaccia... But they don't serve it anymore. Service is now terrible.... Slow....and not kindly... They really don't care about the customers. I won't go in this place anymore"

  • "My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Papa Razzi's outdoor patio this past weekend. Great cocktails and wine selection. We started with the fried mozzarella cheese which was delicious. I tried the Lobster Fra Diavlo which had TONS of lobster meat and just the right amount of spice. The desserts looked great however we declined. Definitely going to be back to enjoy the patio!"

  • "Restaurant changed management. The things we liked best--the tasting flights of wines, delicious salads, shrimp-spinach appetizer--are gone. I used to love the pazanella salad, so vinegary, full of bread, and large. Last night's version was 1/2 the size and had a handful of tiny croutons which looked packaged.NO vinegar but but a creamy sauce. (I had asked sauce on the side.) Ironically, the prizes of dinners have been raised as quality has dipped."

  • "We went for dinner at 7:30pm and there were plenty of tables on a Wednesday. Our server David told us it was his first night working at this Papa Razzi location but that was barely noticed. He was very nice even though we took our very sweet time before ordering and between courses. The food was great, portions were acceptable and the ambience put pulls everything together. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend."

  • "What stood out was the service. Friendly, professional, with appropriate spacing between courses. Value/cost excellent. Would return next time in area."

  • "Semi-New location on newbury.. nice outdoor patio area.. unfortunately very long wait time for outside on a nice day since its small. Inside is nice, clean, and plenty of seating. Food was very good. Meatball pizza, and panni sandwich were spot on, fresh, and tasty.. Service was good as expected. Always try to visit this place when I visit boston, and i would tell you to do the same."

  • "5-28-14 at 6:15 PM. Cold rainy night in town, we walked in and pleasantly greeted to either go to our ready table or wait at the bar for our other guest to arrive. Bartender gave us a good recommendation on a wine choice, our guest arrived and went up to dinner in this beautiful restaurant . As our waitress said ,the special beef short ribs was a melt in your mouth delight. Truly SPECIAL! Veal parm, excellent and huge! Gnocchi, great as well. Tiramisu was fantastic , not soggy or spongy , with a nice espresso. Very pleasant waitress, at our service, while we visited family from Ohio. We have been here many times, great atmosphere and outdoors in the summer is a true delight. On of the best restaurants in Boston! They never disappoint."

  • "I went to Paparazzi for mother's day and we had a really good dining experience. The place was very crowded, given the holiday and a gorgeous spring day, but the staff was very accommodating given we were a bit early for our reservation. The menu only had a few brunch items but the food was delicious!"

  • "Visited Papa Razzi - Boston but thought it was just okay. We waited a bit for our waiter but was to be expected as it was Friday night. After ordering, however, we waited quite a while for our drinks and had to ask for bread. We ordered soup - ministrone which was okay and Pasat e Fagoli which was awful. It tasted like chili!! For our entrees, we ordered Chicken Sorrento, Penne con Pollo and Rigatoni con Luganega. Each one was 'fine' but nothing to write home about. It was a one and done for us. "

  • "Came here due to the Gluten-free menu options noted on their website. Located on vibrant Newbury St. it has a large and nice interior but dining experience was overall disappointing. Servers seemed confused and generally "tuned-out" Took them about 15 minutes to track down one dog-eared gluten-free menu. Why not asterisk the GF options on your regular menu? My husbands bread arrived at the table before his meal - they promised to bring GF bread but it arrived long after my entree. The GF pizza crust was ok, but the pizza tomato base was heavy on the oregano and tasted like Prego from a tin. When I think wood-fired thin curst margarita pizza I think fresh DOP tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil - this was poor interpretation"

  • "I took two business associates for lunch yesterday. No water for 20 minutes, got our soup in about the same amount of time. Lots of angry diners! No bread basket either, and no wine that was ordered. Other waiters had to help and they were not happy about it to the point of being rude. The food is so delicious that I can't figure out why they can't hire enough employees to serve patrons. Maybe call and get to-go food! Very sad!"

  • "Have been a loyal customer for many years but won't be returning. Had a server who was also waiting on a table of 14. Which meant terrible service for us. Had to ask for water 3 different times from 3 different people. We ordered pizzas that took 1.5 hours to come out. Life is too short to wait that long. No attempt to make amends from the server. Had to wait 15 mins just to get water. If you can't handle that many people in your restaurant then don't accept more reservations"

  • "As someone who does not get to go out with my boyfriend regularly, we had a very nice date night here on Sunday 4/27. The host was pleasant and our server Paul was amazing. He was exactly what both my boyfriend and I look for when we go out to eat. The food was delicious as well! Overall it was a great night and we will definitely be returning soon :)"

  • "Great food and great service. Always come to have aldo as my server, he always remembers me, what I ate last time and it's so considerate. I have absolutely loved both brunch dishes I've had so far and always look forward to my weekend mornings here"

  • "I had a 12:30 reservation on a Tuesday and I'm glad I did because the restaurant filled quickly. The wait staff was highly attentive. Food preparation was slow (32 minutes for my chicken parm Panini) but the portion was huge and delicious. The ambiance is nice. I will definitely return."

  • "After an impromptu lunch or was it brunch we thought that we should really see what they could do and so made a reservation for dinner a few days latter. It was a good decision and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Writing these comments in New York we are able to put the attitudes and service levels experienced in Boston into context. On bangs for your bucks it's Boston by a country mile!"

  • "We booked our table a month in advance through open table and they did not have it when we went to eat our pasta dinner the night before the marathon. Needless to say we were very disappointed. The hostess did not suggest any alternative for us. Luckily we spotted two seats at the bar and ate there. Unfortunately this made for a disappointing dinner. Our trip to boston included 3 bookings through open table and there were no problems with the other reservations. "

  • "The Ravioli with spinach was amazing. The waiter was extremely friendly and sociable. The setting was a dimly lit dining room with dark furniture and decor. I highly recommend it for great Italian pasta dishes. "
