Everything was perfect except for my salmon. It was overcooked.

My family went to Papa Razzi for Christmas Eve dinner. Nobody liked their meal. 3 meals of the 4 were overly acidic, like the cook squeezed an entire lemon on each plate. My husbands pasta was too al dente. The waitress was distracted every time she approached the table. Lastly, our glasses of wine tasted watered down. Would not recommend this restaurant. Total disappointment.

We dined here early on Christmas Eve. The menu is a bit heavy on pasta (yes, it is Italian) and chicken, and I wish there were more beef, fish and pork dishes available. Ivis was our waiter, and he did a great job taking care of us. Was sad to learn that this location (Framingham) of Paparazzi is closing on 12/13/17. Apparently, the rent became too high when Framingham decided to become "a city". So, will have to go to Wellesley location from now on. Too bad, because the Framingham location had it over Wellesley like a tent in my opinion. Plenty of easy parking, a much bigger spot and more ambiance. The Wellesley location always seems noisy, crowded and filled with kids; not exactly where you'd want to go for a "relaxing" meal.

Food was awesome!
They have high standards!
The waiter made a mistake keying in my husband’s order and so he did it over, they were busy, so it took awhile and the restaurant comped his meal.

The bread was warm focaccia for gluten eaters, my husband was served a gluten free roll.

The beef carpaccio is a nice shared appetizer or a light salad for one.
I loved my filet balsamico, but next time I would ask to sub the roast potatoes with a green vegetable.
My husband wolfed his gluten free chicken parmigiana, but the pasta was under it was nothing special. He has liked the penne pollo pasta better in the past. (What they accidentally made first. Had they offered it to him, he probably would have eaten it happily. )
My son finished his chicken piccata and the risotto it was served with.

The tiramisu was rich and I had just a few bites and took the rest home.
Sadly, their landlord raised the rent so much they are closing the Framingham location.

Nice Chow... But Closing Soon... We had a very nice dinner tonight. Enjoyed the antipasto, a pizza, caesar salad, beef carpaccio, gnocchi, grilled chicken, and brownie w/gelato for dessert. Nice wine by the glass and cocktails. Service from Melissa was excellent... friendly and attentive.

Sad to hear that they are closing this location after 12/31/17 as they couldn't come to terms with the landlord. They have other locations, but stop by to get a last meal in before they close up here. Just a few days left!!

A great restaurant but found out this location is closing for good on 12/31/17. Shame, as their other locations are just not convenient for me.

I went there with my family for Dinner. The service was good. The pasta dishes were very good, the Minestrone soup was sub-par, the salad was OK, but the brownie sundae desert was excellent.

We had an EXCELLENT server who was attentive and helpful. The food was excellent. It was crowded yet wait times for food were very short. My only complaint - big booths that make it hard for folks to move about for bathroom breaks -5 people in a round booth is not convenient. I would MUCH prefer a table. Also, the booth was VERY tight for sitting. I was very uncomfortable. Luckily the food and company made it bearable.
