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!

As always, the food at Papa Razzi was delicious. We went at an off hour so not too crowded or noisy.

We felt the menu was somewhat more limited than in the past. More important, we miss the bread sticks.

So glad this restaurant made it through the pandemic.

My husband and I sat on the patio in our favorite area sheltered from rain . Our server ,Elise, was pleasant and prompt. Our salads - the “chopped” and the “romaine with added tomatoes and cucumbers” were fresh, ample and delicious.

We were seated quickly but it was apparent that our waiter was near the end of his shift - he poured waters haphazardly and spilled water on my cell phone - no apology. Also, took a long time to come back to the table - we waited so long that we actually got up to leave and walk to the front desk before he spotted us and came with the check -- I'm surprised as most times we get great service..... no one is perfect but this visit was less than idea.

Was exactly what we wanted when we were craving Italian on a rainy summer evening. The food was really good and totally reasonably priced -- very fresh and tasty. We had a nice evening despite being fairly busy (and had to use a phone to see the menu) but very worth it! We will be going again!

Really nice Italian style meal on rainy Saturday night. Lighting by the kitchen was a little dim but that was just a minor issue. A great option when in the area.

While the service was pleasant enough, every part of the food and beverage was poor. The bread was perhaps the best part, but well below what focaccia should be. The scallops were VERY overcooked, so laden with salt and pepper that they could hardly be identified as scallops, and the only Sauvignon Blanc offered was bitter and devoid of flavor. My husband’s veal parmigiana was adequate at best. We won’t be returning.

My friend took me out to diner last night at Papa Razzi. The whole experience was nice but what made it truly exceptional was our service. Sydney was one of the best servers I've ever had. She made sure we had everything we needed every step of meal. She was prompt in greeting us, ensured our orders were correct and very attentive. When I asked a question regarding dessert wine that she was unsure of she followed up with me quickly to provide an answer. Bravo Sydney. Thank you for making our meal so special! We will be requesting her next time we are in.

What a fantastic experience. We were 5, but arrived 1/2 hour apart. As part of the first 2, we were seated promptly and our server made sure we had water and bread. (He was so wonderful patient with us...) Once we were all there, ordering was easy and efficient (server didn't write down orders, but got everything exactly as requested...). Food portions weren't overwhelming; just right.

Kudos to the restaurant - we 'overstayed' our time (it was a family reunion and we got carried away with our stories), however, we were not rushed and felt very comfortable with the whole 'vibe'.

Thank you Papa Razzi for a wonderful experience.

We enjoy dining at Papa Razzi very much. We were a party of 4. Our server is a real pro, Mr. Gill. He is a nice man with an amazing memory & a lovely demeanor. 2 in our party had the scallop entree & the others had veal & a beautiful pasta dish, delicious! The bread is yummy & drinks always good! We were very comfortable in the restaurant with most people being vaccinated! A+, Marilyn R.

We had a quick drink and dinner. Pasta was wonderful with great sized shrimp, light sauce, and tasty tomatoes. I enjoyed the veal picatta-- a bit over cooked, but still delicious with the lemon butter sauce & capers. I enjoy al dente' veggies -- but the broccolini was just a tad too al dente' for me -- potatoes were fine! Will return. Always a good meal here
Staff was very friendly and welcoming -- our waitress sweet as well.
