My husband and I stopped in Wellesley on our way to Boston and discovered this large and friendly Italian restaurant. Those of us with gluten sensitivities never go to Italian restaurants for obvious reasons, but my husband was craving pasta and so I resigned myself to eating an entree salad. Imagine my surprise when they gave me my own gluten... More

We went year after a 2-3 year gap. Generally, I've always been impressed that Papa Razzi seems like such a step up from other more pedestrian Italian restaurants, but without a huge markup in price. First, the level of service is very professional and sophisticated, but not stuffy and overbearing. I can wear shorts on a hot day while they... More

Food was very good. Atmosphere not so much. Air conditioning either not working or temperature set way too high. Restaurant was maybe half or two thirds full yet service was, while very friendly, incredibly slow. Final negative is poor parking in the vicinity. All in all a hassle to go.

Came here for a group dinner on May 30th. Our group of six was accommodated with a round table as I requested. My dinner of veal scallopini was very well prepared. Good beer and wine selection. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Parking can be a bit tight on Friday nite as the restaurant was full. We parked across Washington Street in... More

Very good restaurant with consistent quality and service. A "staple". Not going to "wow" you but you won't go wrong.

The atmosphere is great, especially for a couple to relax and have a few drinks along with a good meal. The calimari is excellent as is most of the Italian food. it's a little expensive, but worith it. If you like to sit at the bar and schmooze, this is a great place for you. Not the best place to...

Saturday May17,2014. I and my son ordered the special this evening, Osso Buco. We tried some and could not eat it. It was so over salted to the point of being uneatable. One would think that the kitchen would ensure that this would not happen. We were not charged for the dish, but it was a great disappointment on a... More

We have dined here several times in the last three or four years. It seems like there might be a slow slide downward. The service we had a couple of months ago was genuinely abysmal, but there was no response from the restaurant after an Open Table review. That was disappointing. Last evening, we dined there with friends, who were... More
