    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/23/2010
    The reservation for a large party worked smoothly. The service was very good. The drinks were disappointing; had to be sent back twice. Be careful ordering a mixed drink, very weak, even for someone who rarely drinks. Presentation is fine. Veal is tasteless. Because the kitchen is open, if you are seated nearby, be prepared to be warm throughout the meal. It also adds to the noise factor.The restaurant location in Newton Lower Falls is by far superior on every level.

    15 minutes before we were waited on while restaurant was not overly crowded...person bringing salads carried one plate overlapping the other, leaving goat cheese all over the bottom of one plate and spilled salad onto other plates while serving it and took no notice. Waitress didn't mention specials until asked and we had already ordered appetizers. Foccacia was so salty it was inedible. Main course was just ok. Dessert cream puffs were soggy. This was meant to be a special Father's Day dinner...very disappointing.... so much so that I'm writing a negative review (which I never do) and skipped the doggy bag ( which I also never do) ...won't go back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/23/2010
    I've eaten at this Papa Razzi numerous times. The waitress seemed to be a bit out if it with service, knowing items on the menu, and responding to requests. As an example, we ordered a wonderful dessert that has oven roasted fruit with gelato. Having had this before, I asked that the gelato be brought to the table on the side, so it wouldn't be melted by the roasted (hot) fruit. She brought out the roasted fruit with the melted gelato on top, along with another "side" of melted gelato. Lack of attention to details like this prevailed for most of the meal. The salads were great, the rest of the food was fair.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/21/2010
    We originally had picked the restaurant because of their outdoor dining. As it turned out it was too chilly to eat outdoors that night and we were offered another table inside upon our request. Unfortunately, the table was somewhat near the door to the patio which at that time was still open (all the time). So we had to ask for yet another table. We never really got warm - I assume because the air condition was turned on too high (the day before was very hot). The somewhat chilly air was unfortunate because we could not fully enjoy the good food and of course we did not want to complain any more.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/20/2010
    I've been to Papa Razzi many times at different locations. The food is always good (not stellar, but solidly good), and the ambiance and service, with very few exceptions, have always been very good (the waiter this time was excellent, yet not overly attentive). Sometimes the restaurant can be rather noisy, but in a good way as it's busy and never so loud that you can't hear the people you're dining with. I go back to Papa Razzi with regularity because it's good AND dependable, when both (quality AND consistency) are rather hard to find these days even at some Boston's most highly rated and expensive restaurants.

However, it took a few tries to get it right. All in all the food was just fair. The table were very close together and the restaurant was very noisy.

    I went on Mother's Day for Brunch. Obviously a very busy day. We came a little early and let the staff know we were there with our entire party. They did end up seating us right on time, but there was very little room to wait in the restaurant (assuming they weren't used to that many people there). The whole process was hurried, including the food. Appetizers came out quick and were good. However, the entrees seemed a little rushed and the food seemed pre-prepared (my tenderloin was cold). I've been on other occasions, and can't say that this is the norm.

    For two branches of our family, located more or less equidistant from the restaurant, Pappa Razzi Burlington is a kind of standard rendezvous spot. The food is reliable, and there are some creditable wines on the list. Service is generally quite good. The place IS very noticeably noisy, but we seem to be able to ignore the racket most of the time. It is probably a touch overpriced, but still, we would recommend it for a comfortable, reliable upper-mid-range dining experience.

    Good Morning, The food and service was excellent as it always is. We were visited by someone other than our server who was checking to see how the evening was going - always good to add this feature. The only item and I don't know if this can be corrected or who is at fault - but the salad wasn't even close to being done and the meals came out. It was a bit awkward! Should the server catch that or is it your policy to serve when the food comes out? Thank you.

    This place had been a favorite of mine for 20 years. They had the best Caesars salad in the country and awesome thin crust pizzas. They recently messed with the formula and the food is nowhere near as good. Their pastas are still ok, but much of their food is now a lot more like every other Italian restaurant chain.
