    The menu looks promising but the execution fails. Panzanella is just a decent salad with some fresh(!) lumps of bread. Gnocchi drown in way-way much of tomato sauce, which is much too sour - one can only taste that sourness. Decent wine list.

    I don't usually like to go to chain restaurants, but this one in Concord is the exception to my rule. Everyone from the front desk host to the waiter AND the manager made our visit here very enjoyable. We came with a Living Social offer and we were treated extremely well. The salads are HUGE and can easily be shared (and probably should be @ $7-8:50). The entrees are generously portioned and very tasty. We enjoyed our visit and will definitely return here!

    The dinner took forever to come out today and it was an early dinner. The food was great and we were not in a rush, so everything was okay. The kitchen and wait staff were not in sync today. Mom ordered gluten free rolls that showed up 30 minutes after we ordered. Then came 2 more! I had the swordfish special with a risotto cake. THe meals tend to lack veggies, so I ordered asparagus on the side and that came right away.

    Food quality was poor 2 entrées of salmon were both dry and taste less. My order of chicken was tasteless and somewhat dry the side of potatoes was overcooked too while the sautéed spirit och was tasteless too. Overall the food has gone way down hill. This is the 2nd straight time at this restaurant that the food was far from its old standard. Don't think we will be back

    We visit this restaurant every few months but this time we found it exceptionally noisy--deafening in fact. We were told sound-absorbent tile was scheduled for installation. Can't be soon enough. The food was about as before, but the coffee was lukewarm. I will add that the service was not at fault.

    We keep coming to Papa Razzi in Concord because the whole family can usually find something to their liking and the prices are not too high. That said, the last few visits have honestly been mediocre. It seems this chain restaurant is starting to lose its edge. If we have another so-so visit here, I am going to be forced to write this one off as yet another blah blah pizza/Italian restaurant so abundantly available in the area. I wish someone would get in the kitchen and get it really sharp again.

    My family and I have been to Papa Razzi's a few times now, and have been pleased with the food and service every time. Recently, however, I reserved a table for a large party for a weekend night, my friends were all there on time, and since it was a surprise bday celebration, it was a little frustrating that we could not be seated for 30 minutes. Why make the reservation then? We will go back, but I would be hesitant to book another function for a large party.

    As long time Papa Razzi fans, we were very disappointed by our recent visit. The new owners have really gutted the menu, and taken away the special touches. The food is now bland; in this recent case, underdone roasted potatoes and broccolini, smaller sized drinks and glasses of wine. Our waiter was pleasant but unknowledgeable, and his timing was way off. In general, this once consistently delicious and pleasant destination bears all the earmarks of ruthless cost cutting, and they've lost a customer in us.

    Papa Razzi Concord is definitely our go-to restaurant. We can always count on excellent service as well as consistent and delicious entrees. Along with our ever favorite chicken parmesan, we enjoyed a sword fish special this visit that would rival any high end, gourmet restaurant, anywhere. The presentation was beautiful and the flavors were outstanding. We especially enjoy the ambience when we eat in the bar area.

    I have food allergies and was able to find plenty of choices on the Papa Razzi menu. I believe they cook food to order and use top-shelf ingredients -- a rarity in the restaurant world these days. Plus the food was tasty and well-presented. Brunch is a great deal.

    Food was not timed well. Main course overlapped our appetizers. I had the shrimp with polenta and arugula. My dish was almost cold while all the others were piping hot. For ~$28 I got 4 shrimp that were not cleaned of the vein. The other dishes were very oily and my family all had abdominal issues after eating. We were seated in a side room, the only four top table where the rest were tables of 10. It was so loud we couldn't speak to each other. We will not return.

    We recently had an 88th birthday party with 13 people, including four (well-behaved) kids age six and under. The staff was extraordinarily attentive. The food was hot when it arrived. The poached eggs were runny! At the risk of making the place too crowded, I urge you to go there for weekend brunch.

    I asked in advance for a quiet spot for our group of 6 because my Mom is hard of hearing and yet we found ourselves in the middle of the main dining room where the acoustics are terrible and you can hardly hear yourself think. People at the table were having to lean over the person next to them to have a conversation. The chicken mushroom risoto was exceedingly salty even though I asked for a low salt preparation. I guess the days of personalized preparation the way you want it at Papa Razzi is a thing of the past. Salad was good and so was desert.

    Recently our Papa Razzi in Concord has been through new mgmt and has been suffering - our dinner Saturday night was a great blast from the past! the service was as expected, the food very good and delivered in timely manner and the mgr came over to comment and ask how we were doing in light of a recent review for poor service. They even provided dessert and dessert wine on the house for the past experience. It was a very welcome gesture and one that made us feel they were listening and wish to maintain our business. GREAT Job! and we will be back.

    The food here was very good. Excellent presentation and the flavors were all present. I hate eating bland food. This was not the case! I was really surprised because the name of the restaurant was kind of corny and I wasn't sure how the food would be but it was delicious. The wine was a bit pricy but overall I will definitely stop in here again if I am in the neighborhood.

    Our all time favorite restaurant has changed for the worse with the change in management. The food was mediocre, the caesar salad which we love, was very soggy. I ordered the special rib eye and was so surprised at the way it appeared on the plate in small sliced up pieces. I thought I was going to get a full ribeye steak. The cut or the way it was cut made it appear and taste less than what I had hoped, such as all different heat consistency, some pieces were well done and others were medium rare when I asked for medium. the veal parmagiana and pasta was also smaller in size than in the past. Many of our friends that were repeat customers have also discussed the change and the disappointment in food portion and quality.

    I was told that Papa Razzi was bought and has new owners. That is why the menu is different. There are only half the choices. I am vegetarian and always found the old Papa Razzi a great place to go with lots of options. This is no longer true. This particular restaurant in Concord has always been consistent. Out of all the Papa Razzi restaurants you could always count on getting the same dish. I don't think I will be going back as much. The desert menu stayed the same.
