Always a fine meal here. The 5 of us loved everything we had. A first class restaurant. You forget it is part of a chain. Great service as always at this spot, which is somehow the best of the 5 I have been to.

I was so happy with my visit on Saturday night that I returned the next day for lunch. The food was good and the service was friendly and professional. I was particularly impressed with the maitre de / hostess staff. Prices were very fair for good quality! I hope to return again soon when in the area. My reservation was honored even though the first night I arrive early and the second day I was late. Very well run establishment!

Excellent food in an elegent
Excellent food in an elegent setting. Service was very good from the valet person to the team of maitre de greeting us at the door and the server. The breadsticks were enjoyable and the bread excellent. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. I was impressed with the quality of food and the reasonable prices.

7 ladies for Sunday lunch
7 ladies for Sunday lunch - happy to realize they offered both Brunch and Regular menu. I called ahead to advise we would want to sit for awhile and preferred a round table if possible. The staff and our waiter were attentive and more than accommodating to our 3 hour visit. Always enjoyed the food and atmosphere at every Papa Razzi but this was a wonderful experience - they went beyond my expectations allowing us to sit for so long and continue to feel welcome. Note: The Cappuccino Gelato was delicious and large enough for 3 ladies to share! All in all a terrific experience.

Uneven food but overall decent
Pappa Razzi offers decent reasonably priced food. Especially good are the salads--lightly dressed, crisp and with generous portions.
The pizzas are mediocre and some pasta dishes sub-par. The mushroom tortellini were clearly the tasteless gummy frozen sort, and not a mushroom could be found in the mushroom sauce that came with it. The pricier special--lobster fra diavolo, was quite well-prepared. as was their chicken offering.
The service was excellent--attentive and unobtrusive.

service was a little off this evening we were asked for our order when we sat down rather than asking for drink orders
food was very good but we felt rushed as meal arrived before we had finished our drinks.
think the service was off as waiter was new? dropped ice cubes for drinks on table but did not remove

This is always a good choice and we go often...full menu with some daily specials, consistently good service and delicious.

Lovely weekend brunch
Brunch at Papa Razza is special, not your usual eggs and bacon restaurant. The choices were excellent and the included mimosa made it that much more special. My friend and I wanted a place that we could talk without blaring music and not feel rushed. This was the place to go. The frittata was very good though a bit dry. However, the warm blueberry bread made up for any shortcomings. And our server (forgot his name) was excellent.

The service here is a little shaky. Seems to be a disconnect between the kitchen and the waitstaff.
Restaurant is accessible to the mobility impaired.The staff handles the challenges of seating or placing the disabled well.

I ordered a pasta carbonara that was not on the menu and they
made it for me. Delicious - not too creamy.

Had a delicious meal with a very special friend. The calamari was perfect and I love how they are able to split an entree thus leaving room for dessert. Will definitely be back.

Great Location to meet with groups
This Wellesley location is good for meeting people coming from a large radius. It's proximity to Rte 95, 128 and the Mass Pike is hard to beat. It also is a great place to make reservations for fairly large groups. Our was 9. I have also been to a dinner in the private room, they do a great job with the buffet. No-one can have trouble finding something they like. Because they seat so many large tables the sound level is high.

Great Menu; Excellent Service
Papa Razzi is perfect for many occasions -- not too formal but formal enough to seem like a special meal out. Food is very good and the waitstaff is personable and efficient. Different waiters deliver the food from the kitchen and did not check to clear our appetizer plates prior to arriving at the table which is awkward. The manager was very conscientious coming by several times to see if we were enjoying our meal.

Great service, great food!
We took our kids (2 tweens and a baby) to Paparazzi 2x in past month. Most of us ordered the same thing, it was just *that* good! I especially appreciate how graciously they accommodated my dairy allergy, creating a chicken picatta entre for me sans dairy that had a robust flavor - just delicious. My kids loved their food as well. Definitely our new favorite restaurant. Reasonable prices for the cuisine/atmosphere, and convenient suburban location so we don't have to make a trip into the city. Very professional and courteous wait staff. Looking forward to our return visit!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really like Papa Razzi - nice atmosphere and reliably good food.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
This particular location had dated decor, but it doesn't hurt business. The food is consistently very good, and they take food allergies seriously. Wait staff are usually good, and the wine list is excellent, including an unusually strong selection of wines by the glass (or half glass).

Food was its usual high quality and the service was outstanding.

Great meeting point for friends. Food and service were very good. A good variety for all tastes.

I love that you have Valet
I love that you have Valet parking now. The Wellesley restaurant is hard to park if there are no spots in the parking area so the valet parking is terrific.

Wait staff was good but reception..
Chaotic is an understatement. The waiting area and reception was a hot mess. Yes, it was busy but this restaurant is always busy on a weekend evening. You'd think they'd have something worked out by now.
Thankfully our server was great and the food was delicious.

Always a good meal
Papa Razzi has a good GF menu and never delivers poor quality in my experience. The service was a bit slow for Friday night, and while the food was very good it was not exceptional (which specials sometimes are). I had roasted lemon chicken, wilted spinach and roasted potatoes. All well prepared, but with a bit too much butter and salt. My husband had a GF pasta dish which was also too salty for his taste.

For the most part everything
For the most part everything was excellent. a couple of meals weren't hot but didn't want to send them back.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mom had spaghetti bolognese which is her favorite - my husband had penne con pollo and I had a gluten free pizza. Not a complaint among us - the pomogranate martini was fabulous. Our waiter was one of the best I've had - very attentive to my gluten free allergy - all in all it's one of my favorite restaurants!

Our waiter Nick (Korean Nick)
Our waiter Nick (Korean Nick) was the best. There were guests at another table next to mine that was very rude and impolite to Nick. He continued to treat us all with great service and remained professional.

Papa Razzi Celebration
Perhaps one of the more consistent restaurants I have been to, thus a great go to spot. Fine food and wine offerings with creative desserts. Whether a couple or a crowd, the restaurant can handle your party.
If you haven't been; be sure to put it on your bucket list; you will find that it will make it to your Go To list quite quickly.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Server John was terrific. Within a minute of sitting down, John was there to take our drink order. He gave us time but checked in repeatedly as we made our dinner choices. Our food was timely, delicious and hot. Always a great experience when we visit Papa Wellesley.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice find
The food was good but for Italian in Boston, there are more options. The restaurant has impeccable service. That was one of the most attentive meals I have ever had. The price was very good also.

Popular neighborhood location
Although decorated similar to the rest of the restaurants within this chain, this spot is tucked into a small sub-community of Wellesley (I believe called Wellesly Hills) - providing that neighborhood feel.
Food selections and service are always great and ambiance relaxing for that after work dinner with friends or a special occasion. I visited for dinner with friends and we were all pleased with our meals and service received on a Wednesday evening.
Will certainly visit this location - as well as others around the Boston suburbs - for guaranteed great meals in the future!

Great service for a table of 10. Servers know their wine and make alternative suggestions. ALways fun

Dependably good food
I have eaten at Papa Razzi many times and the food is always good. You can not go wrong with the food or the specials - everything was delicious. The service could have been better. We had a party of 5 and ordered 2 salads for the table. They arrived on 4 plates. We had to ask for a plate for our 5th person, so we could share the salad. The plate arrived without serviving utensils and there was only 4 tomato slices in total, so one of us had no tomato. The pitchers had too much ice and the water was not refilled enough to compensate. I was hit in the face with icy water twice when trying to drain the last drops of water from my glass while I waited for more water.

The resturant people were very accomodating when my guests arrived late and I needed to delay the reservation. Also, they were welcoming and took good care of my party including the baby and toddler. They were patient and didn't act annoyed as workers sometimes do when children are in the party. It was perfect.
