Our meals were delicious. Our service was very good - they are a bit short staffed at the moment, so slight delays, but honestly great if you realize just how much they are doing with fewer staff. Good values food for the prices. Very happy with our visit.

Dinner experience was poor. Our server was NOT wearing a face covering and was not only inexperienced but also rather inattentive to our table. The restaurant seemed pretty empty at 8pm on a Saturday night, yet our party of 2 was squeezed in closely to those already sitting and eating. No spacing! Food, fair for the price. Not an overall good experience. Won't go back.

I spoke to the hostess on arrival asking if my party of 4 could have a table that was under the roof outside. I was told in not so nice manner that that table was reserved.
We were there for 90minutes and the table was never used. If there is one thing I dislike is being lied to. We had a nice meal but as elderly women , we would have been more comfortable where I wanted to sit.
A real disappointment.

The food portions got unrealistically small. I got the beet salad and salmon. The salad was tiny and not well balanced compared what it was. I came home and had to eat more to feel satisfied.
Good food but not a good value anymore. Overpriced

Our meal was delicious but our dessert was below par. You would expect a tiramisu from an Italian restaurant to be as good as the meal. It was not. Instead, it was soggy and unflavored.

Our waitress was inexperienced or so it seemed. She did not know how to access my Bene membership. So she did not apply my rewards to the tab. We had to insist she redo the check. She tried hard to please us but she was either too busy or did not bother to check my account.

We were celebrating our grandson's going off to college. We always enjoy Paparazzi and wanted him to enjoy it as well. We all had the veal Parmesan along with the mozzarella fingers and calamari and tiramisu. We enjoyed every bite! Our waiter was terrific and very helpful. WE look forward to bringing another grandson here soon.

The patio is quiet, private and pleasant. The service was fair. We asked for a salad and the waiter forgot to put the order in. The service was also a bit slow. The waiter was very nice. The food was very good. The chicken parmigiano is always good, the Bronzino was very tasty.

Our reservation was for 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon. We practically had the entire restaurant to ourselves. There were 9 of us and we were comfortably seated in a long booth that was just perfect. Everyone really enjoyed their entrees as it had been a long time since we were all there and the menu had changed… and all for the better. Look forward to going again soon.

Requested table was ready and greeting was prompt and friendly. Our Server was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We were pleased to see some new additions to the menu as we wanted something different. Our cocktails and The Burrata starter were excellent! We also enjoyed the Chicken Piccata with Asparagus Risotto. It was a very good dinner and evening.

A lot of the dining experience includes the service. While service was not poor with respect to attentiveness, it was odd because of the server himself. We learned that he normally is one of the bartenders. My suggestion is that he go back there. Personal appearance, professionalism and faith in the service are all elements which make a great server. Our guy had none of these qualities. As my wife said, the guy was just a bit “creepy” and “socially inept”.

We had not been during the pandemic and were glad to be back. The service was great. I have food allergies (fish/shellfish), and the manager came over to assure me they would take great caution. That level of care makes me able to enjoy dining without worry.

First and most important, they have taken the garlic and lemon chicken off the menu. We have requested it be put back several times. The statler chicken is not a good substitute. 3 of 4 of us wanted the original chicken and 2 ordered the statler chicken and said it was no comparison to the original.
I ordered a Caesar salad with medium rare tenderloin to tips. They arrived burnt and I returned the dish. By the way, the salad was quite skimpy. I got a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp. The salad was adequate on this dish. They comped my meal.
All in all, the menu is now limited and the choices require that we substitute many of the sides.
Let's go back to the original menu. We frequent this restaurant very often, but we're getting skeptical and looking to go elsewhere.

Uncrowded for a late lunch. We opted for inside seating due to hot weather, and majority of tables were open. Both had salads, which were generous in size, fresh and flavorful. He finished his, I took nearly half home for later.

Paparazzi has been such a consistent quality restaurant with amazing delicious food and outstanding service. The experience from the moment you enter, being greeted, seated to the presentation and quality of the food and service throughout the night is exceptional. Always fantastic for a special occasion, a family night out or even a casual lunch!
