    Wonderful restaurant with many choices for both regular and gluten free diners. . We had the gluten free appetizers and entrees, and they were fantastic. The restaurant’s owner, Dominic, has celiac and he definitely does it right. The service and ambience are both great. Highly recommend.

    Greeted so warmly by a waitress at the door. We ordered the meatball appetizer, they had good flavor a bit overworked though and only warmed. We had a fettuccine and lobster scallop shrimp mushroom and spinach pasta dish, ravioli and chicken cutlet with mozzarella and the rigatoni and shrimp with Gorgonzola cheese. Hard time choosing which was best. The apple tart was killer.

    My family and I ate here the week before with an exemplary experience of service, foods, Daniel, our server, was superlative personified. Therefore, when a girlfriend of mine needed a girl night out for dining some catching up, Papazzio Italian Restaurant was just the perfect place. This time, Kaileen was our sever and she exceeded our expectations in service, recommendations on certain dishes & drinks. She was very solicitous and catering to our needs. Of course, Daniel, was there to visit our table to ensure our dining experience was going to be wonderful and we were in good hands from Kaileen’s ministration. Papazzio is our go to place for special and any occasions ! Foods and drinks were sublime. I highly recommend this place.

    Food was prepared to our liking. Portions were appropriate except a little surprised that mussels appetizer was small compared to other restaurants. Service and pleasantries were superb from the moment you step into the restaurant to the moment you leave.

    Great place for people who are gluten free! I have celiac and felt very welcomed by the owner who also has celiac. My boyfriend shared gf dishes with me and really enjoyed them too even though he doesn’t usually eat gluten free food.
