Their homemade pasta specials are amazing. We usually stick to whatever they have on special because it's always amazing.

I recently had dinner at paparazzi w/ my parents & some out of town family, one world describes my experience AMAZING!! Muscles & clams w/ heirloom tomato sauce, Great.. Eggplant Napoleon, brilliant.. I had the pork chop w/ honey smoked brandy sauce, incredible.. My sister had the chicken parmesan & mind you we are Italians, best in Raleigh, our server was Conrad & he was awesome his table presence is very professional.. We can tell that the Executive Chef Michael Kuilan really has passion for his craft, we also had the opportunity to meet the owners Joe SR & Joe JR great people..
Can't wait to share this place w/ friend & coworkers..

We both ordered Homemade Pasta - excellent! It was great to try new Italian wines. Outdoor dining looked beautiful. Hopefully, we can get a table outdoors next time. We will be back.

Chef Kuilan is the best!!
I am a resturant snob and a former Italian resturant waiter. I took my mother here for her birthday and we were both pleasantly satisfied. I had to meet the Chef. He is an awesome guy and has an amazing approach to his dishes. I'm a fan.

If you are looking for the best flavored faire consisting of the freshest ingredients, all hand prepared by an Executive Chef with a palate that is creative and purposefully distinct, enjoyed in a restaurant with quaint ambiance and top notch service, then choose Paparazzi! Whether it is a full course dinner, to a quick lunch bite, to a brunch that will leave you pleasantly full and relaxed, you will be excited to return to experience the next great art in cuisine. Atmosphere is also a positive mention, with a blend of modern and old world traditonal that compliment the food, and service that is attentive but not overbearing, and never hurried. Don't forget to leave room for a scrumptious selection of home made desserts. Five stars!!

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to the restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent with two pizzas and two pasta dishes. A good place.
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food and Customer Service
We dined at Paparazzi's for our 16th wedding anniversary. The food was fantastic. Special requests were handled with ease. Excellent customer service by everyone who came to our table.
5/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place to connect with friends
Attentive server was available but allowed us some privacy to catch-up. Nice drink and wine by the glass menu. We had several apps and all were very nice; can't comment on the entree menu. We'll be back!

Best outdoor dining in town
Love the food, love to sit outside watching my kids play on the field and still be able to have an adult conversation with my Family/friends! Best glass of white wine in town.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
wonderful contemporary Italian Foo
We love this restaurant! It is one of our favorites. The food it fantastic!
I would highly recommend it!

Wonderful Father's Day dinner
We opted to go to one our favorites for Father's Day. As usual, we were not disappointed! The food was wonderful, and the service friendly and attentive.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food and outdoor dining
Enjoyed it for Father's Day with a party of 6. Food was really good, and I am usually very picky about finding good Italian food. I had the fettucini alfredo which was perfect (not a big creamy mess like most restaurants), and my Dad has the short ribs which looked AMAZING! Oh and my sister had the soup of the day which was a tomato gorgonzola bisque - it was so good we passed it around the whole table for everyone to try! I wish it wasn't as pricey, but guess I can't complain for the quality of the food.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pleasant dining-Great Sunday Brunch
Our second Sunday buffet brunch-expanded selections for Father's Day. Reservation on time, great food and total enjoyment.
One in our party of four is a vegan and there were many items on the buffet that satisfied both her food restrictions and her
Looking forward to our next visit.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great martini list and great drink specials all week. Food is amazing. Great place for a romantic date night or when you are in the mood for a different atmosphere. Will not break the bank either!
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm Italian and I rarely go
I'm Italian and I rarely go to Italian restaurants because I can make it better at home. I really enjoyed the food at Papparazi and plan on returning. Great Italian food!
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good at reasonable prices
This was our first visit and we really enjoyed the food. There is definitely more on the menu that we'd like to try so we will be going back.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
YUMMY! I was very surprised
YUMMY! I was very surprised about the food selections for the brunch menu. All the stations were laid out with wonderful foods of all types. Very well done.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice local place, we're going back
Bolognese (supposed to be an old recipe) was excellent, salads were fresh, servers were attentive and professional. You got the feeling mgmt was paying attention.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like Being in Europe
The complex the restaurant is in resembles a European village. Paparazzi continued this feeling. The atmosphere was great as wad the food and wine. Really a great evening!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our visit to Paparazzi on Tuesday. Two of us had pizzas, one had fettucine, and we tried the mixed green salad. Alacarte makes it a little pricey, but everything was excellent. It has a nice ambiance and professional wait staff. They also have good specials on wine and cocktails one night a week. We ended up on Martini night, and they got busier than anticipated which slowed things down. We even got a free dessert for my daughter's birthday! We'd go back. The mall is pleasant as well, and music on the green was a plus afterwards.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Paparazzi has become mine and my wife's favorite restaurant. The food is always outstanding. Desserts are made fresh daily by the owners wife. Their veal saltimbocca is the second best I have every had ( the chef who made the best has passed away). The one time we had a sub par waitress, the manager bent over backwards to correct the issue. The food is reasonably priced and new menu's every season. Any celebration in our family calls for a trip to Paparazzi.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I happened upon Paparazzi by searching Open Table on a random Wednesday night and were pleasantly surprised. We loved the atmosphere and even more so, the food. Everything was terrific - we will definitely be back!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've eaten here many times as it is less than a mile from my house. At first I stuck to 2 favorite dishes but recently I've been trying other things on the menu. All the dishes have wonderful complex but delicate flavors.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Impressed with Menu
And food was equally delicious. There were fabulous pasts dishes on the menu and i was very please with the bolognse sauce. Service was also pretty good, no complaints. Would definitely reccommend to friends
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this restaurant. Food
Love this restaurant. Food is great, fresh ingredients, creative and of high quality. Staff is very knowledgeable about preparation of food and also about wine pairings. Several waiters have been there for several years which makes one feel very "at home" in a restaurant environment.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brunch at Paparazzi
Delightful atmosphere. Great food selections. The BEST French Toast ever! Will definitely return.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, the special martini, the server and the ambiance made my date with my husband special. New menu item, chicken Marsala, was excellent.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our family really enjoys the brunch. Great variety so everyone has options to try. Made to order pasta bowls are my favorite.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fabulous. Their french toast is the best I've had. The bacon and sausage were great too. I had never had pizza cooked in a wood burning oven. Salads were unique...and the desserts were out of this world. It is family oriented and there were several infants. There are a couple of booths that would give a little more privacy. We would go back again.

New Italian fave
Our favorite Italian restaurant of 17 years closed last year. After trying many non-chain local restaurants, our family agrees this is our new favorite! Excellent food and staff. Only drawback is that you will smell like the wood burning pizza oven for the rest of the night. We like to eat outside when the weather permits.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went before and had to return!
It was our 35th Anniversary and we had a perfect evening.
Very knowledgeable waiter (Justin). Never felt rushed, timing of everything was perfect.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was wonderful! We have been searching for a GREAT Italian restaurant since moving here 2 years ago. This, we decided, will be our go-to restaurant for italian food. We even tried the pizza as an
appetizer and it was perfect, not oily, thin crust, cooked just right! The bolagnese sauce was the real deal!!!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fettuccine was sticky and
Fettuccine was sticky and the string beans were way over cooked, eggplant appetizer was perfect and stuffed peppers were good.
Out wait or was super nice and attentive as well as the manager.
We were able to enjoy the ambiance and talk, we had a good time and would go back.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for dining and conversation
Went with friends and had a great Italian meal which is saying something since my wife and I are both Italian. Also the noise level was such that our party of four could carry on a conversation without having to shout yet, the restaurant was vibrant and active. The owner checked on our table several times and was quite attentive to service. We will definitely return.
