Very accommodating. We choose not to sit at the table they had available and instead gave us the next available booth in a less busy area.

I went for a Sunday brunch
I went for a Sunday brunch with an old friend I hadn't seen in a while. This was my first time at Papa Razzi.
The service was excellent...10 out of 10. The waitress was very patient with us (we talked for a good 10 minutes before even opening the menu). I ordered the French Toast -which came with a complimentary mimosa (double, triple bonus points for that!). The complimentary breadsticks were delicious. The food itself took way longer than expected to come out. I was a little disappointed with my meal - the french toast was not served with any syrup.(seems like syrup should be an automatic?). That made the meal a little "bland". Otherwise, my experience here was good. Next time, I will order something else.

Went to this place for the
Went to this place for the first time in years for a family dinner. We all enjoyed the food, which is much better than your average chain restaurant, but the standout was the service. We had several young kids in our group and the staff was accommodating of our requests-- and did so with a smile. Having never been here with kids, I wasn't sure what to expect, but they have a pretty standard kids menu; the restaurant was busy and loud enough that the noise of our kids didn't offend other diners.

Great for family gatherings
We held a last minute, impromptu, anniversary party for our elderly parents, and mom is wheelchair bound making it difficult to find comforatable seating. They were very accomadating. They provided a lovely table, they catered to our picky food requests and they attended our every need. Several of us had the rissoto of the day and it was delicious. We were there at lunch time, so it was "lunch size" but it was also priced right. Very nice place, good food, great service

We were a group of 7 meeting with co-workers and colleagues. The wait staff was attentive and friendly, food was delicious and served hot in a timely manner. Everyone enjoyed the experience. We will definately do it again

A soso dining experience
The food was brought much too early while we were just beginning to sip our cocktails. The food was good but not outstanding. One the other hand, the service was outstanding.

The Best thing about Papa
The Best thing about Papa Razzi's is the food is consistently good throughout all of their restaraunts.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was impeccable
The service was impeccable quite an improvement from my last visit. We all had the special but had it tweaked a bit to each suit our taste. There was no issue changing anything. The waiters were great and very accommodating.
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food and wine
Papa Razzi rarely fails to satisfy. My bolagnese sause and my wife swordfish special were superb.
The MOma wine really helped smooth things along

Best Birthday dinner
Wonderful meal, friendly prompt service, welcoming atmosphere, lovely people.

I had just picked up my guests from the airport and knew that my friend's young son would be hungry and wouldn't last the 90 minute drive .I had been to Papa Razzi previously and enjoyed the food an ambiance. I don't recall the interior having been so lush, but my friend was quite impressed and enjoyed sharing the chicken Valdostana that I ordered! She compared it some renowned restaurants that I had taken her to previously, and our waitress was top notch, and quite patient with the questions posed by my guest's son. A wonderful way to begin our weekend!

Guard your plate!
We visited on a Sunday evening - very busy! Glad I made a reservation. I ordered the risotto (one of three specials that evening) and was unwise enough to let my companions taste it. I had to spend the rest of my dinner defending my dish. Bits of scallion, sliced grape tomatoes and the sweet burst of tiny corn kernels all combined to make for spoonfuls of deliciousness. Other dishes at our table included an Insalata di Campo with grilled chicken and a salad with gorgonzola and sliced grilled steak (yum). One disappointment was an order of pasta with veal meatballs that were overdone (did not taste that one.)
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistency and performance
This restaurant consistently exceeds expectations. The food is very good and both the food and wine are very fairly priced. Service staff are always enthusiastic and generally very attentive.
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yummy and Nice Service!
Great food, great waiter. It starts from the moment you sit down with fabulous breadsticks already on the table. Quick service and delicious pastas - definitely go with a friend or two and share!

Papa Razzi's is always a great
Papa Razzi's is always a great experience for casual dinners. The food is consistently fresh and well prepared. Good wine selections - not too pricey. Love the Putanesca pizza and their daily pasta/fish special. It's usually very busy but doesn't feel crowded.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently reliably good
Papa's has a good menu with some outstanding dishes, like the cavatappi. Ambience is good, noise level a bit high if it's crowded (and it usually is). Service is always attentive. This time we had a relatively new waiter who forgot our order of bruschetta. But we had plenty without it and it did not show up on our bill. I've been to several parties at Papa's and they've always been well run. Out ot town guests have been suitable impressed with the food. It may not be high level gourmet but it's reasonably close. it's always a sure thing.

Yummy Italian Food
Great food, service and atmosphere. Seating is a bit tight, but not enough to be a distraction.

Friday Dinner @ Papa Razzi
Had another nice evening at Papa Razzi in Concord. As always, the food met our expectations and service was good. It was a busy evening at peak dinner time and they had their act together. We reserved a table thru Open Table 45 minutes before arrival with a special request on table location. We got right in even though there were many people waiting without reservations and they had accommodated our request. You couldn't ask for more.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
food is always dependable
We always go to papa razzi hanover and stopped in concord on the way back from a trip. Food was great server even more pleasant. Helped us with wines - allowed us to taste things - very very gracious.
As always the food was good but the server took time to make sure we were happy and attended to - she made it great rather than just a meal. Chef made my son some special honey mustard and he was also thrilled to take some home - nice touch!!
We had a lot of things that we needed and they arrived without hesitation. Chicken Piccata is the best - I have it time and again and never tire of it.

Had a wonderful meal. The quality and taste of the food was excellent. I ordered a nightly special and the seafood was fresh and prepared wonderfully. Great place to celebrate a special occassion or just have a nice night out.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Service- Reliable meal
The service was outstanding and the staff warm and gracious. As always, the food is consistently reliable and true to the traditional recipes. The carpaccio I had for a starter was excellent and the potato gnocci were soft and delicious. My only negative comment is that the noise level is very high and it is probably most suitable for groups and families. Good Italian food, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices for the quality.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
All of the servers , starting with the two managers, were absolutely helpful and went out of their way to accommodate a member of my family who needed special accommodations. The food was tasty, the atmosphere cheerful, and the pizza- mange!!

We are always pleased at Papa Razzi. They are attentive to my husband's need to be gluten free. He enjoys their GF bread and pastas. I think they have one of the best chicken parmesan's that I have eaten and I always enjoy that. A good dining experience.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Little slow tonight.
Food was good. Service was split between 2 people. Don't know why, but it didn't work. And the food was very slow coming out of the kitchen. Usually, it comes out very fast. But not tonight.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Other than the very noisy atmosphere, Paparazzi continues to provide a tried-and-true tasty menu and attentive service. The food is much better than other places of its type and always provides more of a taste treat. For a place that's been around for years, I'm impressed that the waitstaff still really cares whether you're happy.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there
Extremly pleased We all had the Sunday brunch menu
It was perfect food and service

Best food around
Paparazzy has great food, fresh ingredients and a variety of options. Great service and is one of the best options around.

Good neighborhood restaurant
We frequent Papa Razzi and we can always depend on a good meal. We meet friend, take our grand children or have a quiet evening with my husband. The wait staff is always helpful and pleasant. They cater very nicely to my need for Gluten free Meals. Stop by , just off Route 2.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good choice
we eat at Papa Razzi often and its always a good choice, we are never disappointed!
10/8/2013 5:00:00 PM
We all enjoyed our meal and the service was very good. We will be back
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Off to a rocky start but...
My brother and I and our spouses were there to celebrate our birthdays. It took over ten minutes for us to flag down a host to tell him about our lack of service. After that, everything was great. They had a waitress (who was not our server take our drink orders) and then our server came and apologized for his taking so long. The food was very good. The specials very interesting. We will definitely go back again soon.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good neighborhood place
Papa Razzi is a good neighborhood restaurant. I love the food. i wish they would have more options for someone who is salt restricted. I'm aware that an Italian restaurant is not the place to go to limit salt, but it would be nice to have a couple of options.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Celebrated our 10th Anniversary with excellent food and service. Greeted by the Manager Amy who along with the waitress offered us free dessert. We selected Cheesecake which reminded me of my old New York childhood. Wonderful evening. Wonderful memories

Papa Razzi, Concord Review
Used Open Table to make reservation. Worked well. First time diners at this restaurant. Arrived an hour before our 7:30P reservation and friendly hostess bumped us up a half hour even though we were comfortable waiting in the bar. Dining room was crowded but booth was in secluded corner and quiet enough for easy conversation. Server was quick to greet us, attentive and capable. Party ordered salads, Clams w/Linguine special, Chicken w/Penne & Tomatoes and Wood-planked Salmon w/vegetables. All ordered house Merlot w/dinner and enjoyed dessert after dinner. Meals were well prepared and visually appealing but the chicken was a bit overcooked. House merlot was satisfying. All together, a very pleasurable experience and we plan to visit again.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always cooked to order and that impresses me for a chain. I had some slight issues with timing of the meal and manager just waved our desserts. I love the atmosphere here especially once they get the fireplace going next month! They easily accommodate my parties special diets.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Our server was great and we
Our server was great and we didn't feel rushed at all, we got delicious food and the speed of service was perfectly paced. Marisa was knowledgable and friendly and without seeming fake or stiff she managed to keep a professional demeanor while being approachae and friendly. We will be back for sure!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently great food
We eat here frequently, sometimes at the bar, other times in the lounge. The food is always fabulous and the specials interesting. The place has a great vibe. Our local favourite by far.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great central gathering place
My friends and I grew up in central Mass and have since all moved to various cities from western Mass to Boston. Papa Razzi is a great central meeting place for dinner with old friends, we can all access easily right off the highway and love meeting there every few months to stay connected.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great staff, food and experience! Never felt rushed...our waiter Andrew made suggestions which proved to be right on the mark! Plan to return as often as possible!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The menu is a little sparse. I would have liked a few more choices, but the food was very good. The service was excellent.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a delicious meal here this weekend with some dear friends. The menu is extensive and there was a good variety of specials. It can get a little loud in the main room and make quiet conversation difficult. Otherwise we enjoyed it very much.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM

We enjoyed dinner very much and will go back again.

Excellent service, and the
Excellent service, and the waitress was very sensitive to needs of children diners. The food portions were ample and delicious. I had not eaten at a Pappa Razzi for several decades and was very pleasantly surprised. We will return.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
always a favorite
coukd use some nee menu items, but perhaps I say that because of how often we go here. love the gluten free pasta..seriously, it is really good. they also do gluten free pizza.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love It Here
Great Pasta dishes and cooking to order is great! I visit here about once a month with a person that is Gluten Free and Dairy Free and they easily accomodate her requests. They easily accommodate substitutions too!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great dining experience!
My husband and I have eaten at Papa Razzi on several occasions and we have found it just keeps getting better and better.
Of course the food is always excellent. Our meals were superlative Papa Razzi is the kind of place that is classy but not stuffy. Atmosphere and ambience are superlative but in addition, one of the reasons we keep coming back is the service.
Our dining experience was wonderful. We will look forward to returning to Papa Razzi for a special dining experience.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for brunch or lunch on Sunday
We we met a dear friend early on a Sunday afternoon.
They had lunch I ordered from the brunch menu, a frittata with a mimosa. Very good experience.
Our friend had the mahi mahi, my wife the chicken.
Service was good, food good.

Derek was a great waiter.
Derek was a great waiter. And the manager found me at our table to say the alarm was going off in our house (son didn't know we had put it on). We are regulars and are rarely disappointed.
