Papa Razzi - Boston Ratings and Reviews
I was on a business trip to Boston and love to explore new restaurants. I used OpenTable and found Papa Razzi on a Monday evening. Monday is the best day for this restaurant. They offer one-price Monday for all meals on the menu which is a great deal, they also offer discounted wines that are a great deal as well.
The Veal Parm was great, the bar was great and the wine was great.
Perfect experience for a fantastic price. Would recommend highly.
Papa Razzi was a great date location - super convenient, being a short walk from the Copley stop on the green line, and absolutely delicious with many options on the menu. The pasta was amazing and you could most definitely tell that everything was made from scratch on the premises.
Went here for a Valentine's Day dinner and it was nice! The tables were a bit close to each other and I think if the restaurant had been more full it would have been pretty loud. Still a good ambiance though. A lot of people must have canceled due to the bad snowstorm as there were some empty tables and we showed up 10 minutes early and were seated right away. Or maybe it's just always like that. Either way no complaints! The service was excellent and our food came very quickly. Pasta was not the best I've had but still very tasty and the venue worked very nicely for a Valentine's Day.
Papa Razzi's food was delicious. Two of us got pizza (the Pollo Arrabbiata) while the other two got pasta (the Penne All'arrabbiata and the Ravioli Al Pomodoro). We loved each dish! The pizza was a particular favorite, and by the end we were all too full for dessert. Would definitely return!
Don't bother making any reservation in advance . I made a reservation 10 days in advance so I can get a table or a booth something with littel more privacy , they stuck me in the middle of the hallway on a tiny table . So much for a special night out.
We've been going to Papa Razzi in different locations for years, but the Boston restaurant is our favorite. It's the perfect location to meet up with friends, since there are many parking lots available in the area. They have valet parking on site, but it's also an easy walk from the Clarendon St. garage, which only charges $10.00 if you enter after 5:00 pm. Food at Papa Razzi is excellent and plentiful. The Rigatoni con Luganega, Penne all Arrabbiata, Pollo Piccata, and Spaghetti Vongole are our usual go to favorites. Service is outstanding! It's a good idea to make reservations for a Saturday night.
This location has some work to do but not a bad meal. The bread was dry. The risotto was too starchy and bland, not creamy as risotto should be. The almond cookies were very hard too. The waiter was great and recommended a good wine. The chicken was nice and tender. The gluten free accommodations were great. Sounds like this place need a little tweaking in the kitchen. I have not recently had any negative comments about Papa Razzi's in Concord. Try that locaiton!
A friend and I wanted a place to take our middle/high school aged daughters out for a holiday dinner. Both girls have limited palates. Papa Razzi has a nice ambience. Fancy enough so the girls could get dressed up. Portions are large. Girls were able to split their meals - caesar salad and chicken parmesan- and still did not eat it all. Lobster Ravioli very good. Service good, attentive. Wine was decent. Good place for large groups and families or friends out for an evening.
This used to be a cozy, low-key place for dinner, with tables clad in tablecloths and fast and efficient waitstaff. All good things must come to an end. Gone are the table cloths, the good waiters, the piping hot focaccia bread and the ambiance in general. Instead, behold large families with screaming kids, badly washed dishes, clueless waiters and the sort of atmosphere one would expect to find in eateries much lower on the to totem pole.
The food is still good, but i happen to know lots of places with good food, that don't require noise-cancellation equipment. Let's hope that whatever this place is going through is just a phase and not an end-game...
The food was absolutely delicious. Our server was attentive and kind.
But I was expecting more when it came to the details.
Only three complaints.
1. My date and I were greeted by two managers and a host, all at the same time. A bit of an overwhelming and unnecessary greeting.
2. We were seated at a corner booth that was 8 feet from a closet. No problem with that, but it was distracting that their staff kept coming and going putting things away and getting things out, sometimes leaving the door half open with backpacks and jackets hanging out on the floor.
3. The party two tables away, wearing shorts and t-shirts made me a little confused why I was wearing a bow tie and paying $80 for dinner.
But again, the staff was kind, and the food was delicious, but I felt that their attempt at being an upscale restaurant could have been better executed in the details and atmosphere. Or they could have lowered their prices 15-20%.
We have been to many restaurants in Back Bay and have passed Pappa Razi many times but this was our first time dining there. We were seated promptly on a busy Saturday night and the ambiance is quite lovely. However we were disappointed in the food quality. The lobster filled pasta while tasty was undercooked and the Osso Bucca was excessively fatty. Would not go back.
Overall we had a positive experience. The food was excellent; my wife got ravioli and I got filet mignon. The server was friendly and competent. The food took a while to arrive but it was hot, so it makes me think the kitchen was slow, not the server. We had 7:00 reservations but were not actually seated until about 7:20. Not a huge deal since their bar is great so my wife and I had a drink. The service at the bar was first rate. Both bartenders were attentive. I wasn't thrilled about being sat at a table next to the kitchen and stairs, but wasn't going to be picky on a crowded Saturday night. We will go back there because the service is friendly, the food is delicious, and their outdoor seating is some of the best on Newbury St.
Our server seemed really distracted. We ordered an appetizer that never came. She took drink orders for the 2 adults but never asked our 2 kids and walked away. When she came back to the table we ordered for the kids and she didn't get that she completely ignored them. When our dinner arrived we asked about the appetizer and she said she would go get it. We explained we wanted it before the meal, so she said let me check and never mentioned it again. The food was good and served fast, but the server was lacking.
