This trip for dinner was just a relaxed Friday evening with my wife - the place is quite large but set up in such a way as to feel intimate and contained. Not too loud - moderately crowded but at an enjoyable level. Waitress was quick and attentive, friendly. Great salads and then dinner came nice and hot - chicken piccata for me and a pasta/chicken dish for my wife. All was tasty and hit the spot. No dessert as we were plenty full. We will be back again

Ate at the bar and watched the Red Sox play. Bar is comfy and our drinks were good. It was an early Easter dinner. Both had the chicken piccata with asparagus risotto both of which were tasty. We’ve been quite a few times before...sat outside once which was very pleasant and inside tables pleasant as well. Yes, we like Papa Razzi

We were there for a mid-day dinner on Easter Sunday. The restaurant was packed but we had a reservation and were seated and served immediately. We had a lamb shank special that was awesome. Our waiter Jon was terrific; he was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive even though he also served a 12-person table nearby. All in all a very enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Meeting friends we hadn’t seen in 2 yrs. it was a half way point for each couple. The food was great but the waitress we had was in a bad mood or didn’t let me that we were slow ordering but we were enjoying ourselves with the ambiance etc.

We are regular diners at this Papa Razzi, and as always, it hits the mark in all respects. Very busy and lively on a Saturday night, but the service and attention to detail are excellent. The food, by quality and portion measures never disappoints. Parking at that date/time can be a challenge, but not enough to keep us from going back.

I always enjoy Papa Razzi in Wellesley, especially the "old" menu. Never liked the "new" menu they were trying in some locations.

We had been big fans of the Paparazzi restaurant in Chestnut Hill and were so disappointed when it closed but delighted to find Paparazzi so close to where we live. What a disappointment! We were warmly welcomed into the restaurant and thought we would have a wonderful dining experience. Our waitperson who took our order could have cared less about being there and providing quality customer service to enhance our dining experience. They did split our salad dish which we said we were going to share and I thanked the person who brought that to our table. She was at least pleasant. The manager did come by to ask how everything was but it was more of a perfunctory visit than an actual interest in our experience. The hostess was delightful as she cleared our plates and asked if we wanted dessert. We let her know we'd just like the check. The person who plopped the check down on our table also plopped down a dessert menu saying I have to leave that as well. I usually don't write negative reviews but I feel that I have to leave this as well. We will not be returning to Paparazzi.

The service from our waiter started strong but he disappeared. I ordered the baby greens salad and it arrived with oversized, hard to cut leaves—quite unexpected.
The Olive oil with the bread was not very tasty. We were not offered a dessert menu. The table next to us had too many people for the small corner space and they were noisy enough that we moved over mid-meal.
Overall, disappointing.
