Food is delicious and just how I remember it every time. Portions are ample, but not over the top. Ordered a pear martini from their drink menu last night. It was refreshing and a great combination of flavors. Staff always polite and you never feel rushed out.

I felt very safe first of all. They took our info, took our temperature and the tables had plastic on either side. Nicely done. The menu is very extensive, something for everyone including GF. We had a bottle of wine, shared an appetizer,dinner and of course dessert. Try the gelato sliders they were yummy. The whole meal was delicious and the service was good. I always loved the ambiance of the restaurant.

It was our 1st time out to dinner in a year. I highly recommend Pappazio’s.

I have been coming to Papazzio since they first opened over 30 years ago. They never disappoint, so whenever we are celebrating a special occasion, Papazzio is always at the top of our list. From cocktails to desert, the night was fantastic and we were so lucky to have Chris taking good care of us.

It is a very nice family type restaurant. I can’t give it a normal review because these are not normal times. Under the circumstances, they made every effort to give me a delicious meal, with prompt service.
I would recommend Papazzio to anyone looking for a good Italian meal.

This restaurant has a welcoming ambiance; given the times we are experiencing that’s a success. Ordered the Branzino and lobster ravioli, both delicious. Dominic the owner always checks in to ensure your meal is to your liking. Chris our server/ bartender provided great service.

Dominick and his staff have done a wonderful job with making you feel safe while you eat out during a pandemic. There are plexiglass dividers between tables, and you see the staff cleaning and making sure that all customers are safe. Papazzio is always such a warm welcoming place to go and it was nice to be able to return and see everyone and enjoy their delicious food.

My friends and I went to Papazzio for dinner over the weekend and our experience was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for better service. Our waitress was polite and on point. The owner came over a few times to ask how everything was going. One of my friends is gluten free and Papazzio menu has so many gluten free options which was great for her. She said she hasn’t been able to have fried calamari in years. She absolutely loved the restaurant.

Great Service, Amazing food. I highly recommend.

This was the first time we ate indoors since the pandemic. Pappas zip is one of our favorite restaurants, so it was the perfect place to celebrate indoor dining. They had everything set up for the safest experience for customers and staff I paper menus, well spaced tables and partitions between the tables. The service is always top notch, really friendly and attentive staff. The food, as always was delicious-we had the stuffed lobster, garlic mashed and fillet mignon. The chocolate lava cake was amazing! Can't wait to go back!

We missed Dominic’s presence and the regular bar tender. My drink was made 2 times and it was horrible. Clearly, the Manager should not be making drinks. The food was good but again, the regular chef was not there. Oh well :(

Easily one of the best places for a good meal, doubly so if you suffer from Celiac disease.

They have a full separate kitchen just for gluten free meals. I especially love their dip that they offer with regular bread or gluten free bread sticks. It'll make you break the cardinal rule of filling up on snacks before you even get to appetizers.

Their gluten free calamari is amazing for an appetizer. I personally enjoy the gluten free fettuccine con gamberetti e pollo florentine when I go there.

My only regret is that they finally put the gluten free tiramisu on the formal dessert menu. They used to have a mini secret menu if you knew what to ask for lol.

Went there about a year ago and food was great. This time around, food fair at best. They must have changed to cook or something. Ordered spinach, mushroom, shrimp soup - looked great but was very salty. Main course was a spinach pasta dish. Looked great but was very bland. Putting hot peppers in it did not help. Was very disappointed as I was expecting something really tasty from my last experience.
