    The service was terrible. It took way too long to get our food and after we did we didn't see our waitress again. We actually had to go up to the host and ask for our check without ever being asked how our food was or any dessert offers, despite the many open tables and many servers standing around. Throughout the meal the idea of just walking out appealed to me more and more. The food was okay but definitely not worth the long wait and terrible service.

    Overall I was very impressed. Being a chef I appreciated and enjoyed the menu. It had some different combinations that one would not necessarily immediately think of. The service was great and the breakfast pizza was to die for. All 5 in my party were thoroughly impressed and the pricing was spot on. The only drawback is the "one person at a time bathrooms". Luckily we were there at opening, if not I can see that being an issue with a full dining room and deck.

  • Disappointing service this time
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Usually we have great service. This time Jessica was in such a rush that it affected the whole dinner. While the food was great, and Jessica was prompt with refills, my dad kept getting soda water instead of the tonic (as in gin and tonic) water he asked for-- twice. When we were first sat and looking over the menus, maybe 3 minutes after we'd been seated and our drink order were brought, we were discussing what appetizers to get, and Jessica turned around from where she was addressing the other (cramped next to us) table to ask if we were ready to order appetizers. My dad asked if she was in a rush, and she said she wasn't. She didn't come back for 15 (!!!) minutes. Service was perfunctory the rest of the night. Too bad.

    For the first time ever, I had a less than stellar meal. I had the oriechette pasta dish. Broccoli rabe was impossible to cut with a knife. The sausage was ground up so fine, you could barely find any. The fried mozarella starter though was very very good. I will go back again but definitely order a different pasta dish!

    I think the waitress forgot about us numerous times..after finishing eating very slowly, we waited about an hour before asking someone to bring us our waitress. Then we got our dessert menus and waited 30 minutes before she came to take our dessert menu. Then dessert took another 45 minutes...for one apple crisp, which was presented as a much and clearly not right away because the gelato was half melted on top. Worst service I have ever had, will not be recommending.

    A group of us get together a few time/year to eat, drink and talk. The night was perfect for outdoor dining on their deck. The food was wonderful and the waitress and staff were terrific. We were never rushed or kicked out which I cannot say for other restaurants in the area. It is our favorite restaurant for our gatherings especially our summer one. I highly recommend Papa Razzi in Burlington.

    Went there for my birthday. It is a very classy looking place. Both young and older people would really like it here. Great ambiance. The service was great and a lot to choose from on the menu. The waiter had to come back three times as we could not make up our mind as to what we wanted to order. The food was great. We would def go back again.

    Great ambiance, pretty place, yummy bread and breadsticks; someone in our party has an allergy and was very specific with requirements pertaining to prepping the food to avoid the allergens. The waitress hardly listened, and it seemed that she wouldn't be able to correctly describe the specific requirements. When the food came out, it was completely wrong and they needed to remake it. They remade it well, but it came out correctly about 20 min later, when everyone else's food was partially gone or cold. One other person's dish was not made well. Dining room was empty, for a Saturday night.

    Everything about this restaurant is nice, except the food. Two of us had the seafood pasta special and the mussels were off and the seafood was grossly overcooked, even hard. One of us had the veal parm and that was barely edible. Restaurants are about food first and everything else second. Paparazzi has got this sadly turned around. We spent a lot of money for a poor experience. Too bad we won't come back as we live in Burlington and love Italian food.

    I recently went to Papa Razzi for dinner with my wife and was very impressed with the level of service and quality of food. The restaurant appears upscale and the service staff are very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. This is clearly the go to spot for Italian food. This will definitely become one of my short listed favorite places.

    We have tried this restaurant several times and want to like, but there is always something lacking. As good as the entree tasted, the broccoli and roasted potatoes were barely cooked. The service was great up until we got our entree. Our check was left without asking if we wanted dessert or coffee and then our waiter 'disappeared'. It took a while to get someone to look for him, then finally he showed up with no apology. We won't be returning any time soon. Too bad as the outdoor seating looks amazing.

    This is our go-to restaurant when we're craving good food and atmosphere, especially uplifting when I'm having a blah day. The insalata di papa, bruschetta, and calamari are tops on my list, and the waitstaff are invariably helpful and attentive. A big colorful sangria is the perfect drink, though it is sometimes oversweetened.

They are great with special requests also for a small group or just for two. There is ambiance in every corner of the restaurant, bar and outdoor dining area. Have attended many events in their private dining room as well. Always consistent, never dissapoints! The tiramisu is second to none...don't miss it!!

    Have been to several Papa Razi restaurants, Burlington site more than once. Food is good, not outstanding. Bruchetta was a bad. Tomatoes in a sauce over a couple slices of wet bread. Chicken in Chicken Parm was like breaded super market fare. Wine selection is fine. The service person was excellent though. Very attentive and patient explaining the options.

    Papa Razzi Burlington is a favorite restaurant of ours. We take friend and business guests there with confidence. The food is on the rich side ( with wonderful sauces, etc., but consistently good. The service is almost always perfect, though we have, on occasion, had poor service, depending on the server. My primary criticism of this restaurant is that they allow the room temperature to get uncomfortably warm, and wait until customers request more cooling. This pattern repeats throughout a diner's stay. They need to figure out a way to keep the room temp comfortable and steady. Air temp will be an issue now at least through October.

    I have been to Papa Razzi many times over the years. It has been our go to place for nicer nights out, as there is very little in it's category in the area. It’s always been reliable. Our last visit was the opposite. Several mistakes with our order and the staff wasn't very attentive. More significant, the food was majorly disappointing. 2 pizzas were under cooked and went back. 2 dishes were clumped together spaghetti. Very annoying for a $20 plate of pasta. The manager fumble to correct it all. I would like to say it was a busy night and things happen, but it wasn’t busy. It just seemed as if this restaurant isn’t what it used to be, reliable. I may try it again, but I am VERY happy several new restaurants are coming to town.

    I had made reservations the day prior for a large party. Called to confirm and it sounded like they hasn't checked their open table reservations. Luckily I called! I had to made a slight change to the reservations and called again the next day, which they didn't seem to have checked the reservation change. We got there and it started out fine. We were early waiting for the rest of the party to arrive. We put in some apps but asked for the bread as well. When the whole party arrived we asked again for the focaccia, and it still didn't arrive. We had to ask a different server for bread bc ours didn't seem to listen. He only had 2 two tops he was taking of as well. I've worked for PR in the past and was not impressed with out service here.

    Service was terrible. Had to wait for the bread. Never got breadsticks even though everyone else seemed to be getting them after we asked. Was told the breadstick maker was hit by a bus. They lost the ticket to our order and then had to wait for them to sort that out. Pasta was disappointing. Had not been to Papa Razzi for a while. Now we remember why.

    Even tho it was Mother's Day and I'm sure very busy, they still had no breadsticks or bread for this mother. I was very disappointed. No attempts to make up for that--just excuses....that's one of the best parts of the dining experience here (the breadsticks). They also had run out of a couple of menu choices. Overall, it was a bit disappointing. Not a good feeling on Mother's Day .

    We decided to eat out Mothers Day evening at the last minute, and Burlington PR was the only place we could get a reservation. It was very busy, but our server managed to get our order in fairly quickly and the food arrived in fairly good time. They had run out of bread! Amazing. But they had already served 1800 people that day! Food was usual PR standard - good but not outstanding. Considering the chaos of the day I think they did a great job feeding us so well.
