Not Your Average Chain

We have never been disappointed at the Wellesley location. It doesn't feel like a chain outlet to me. The service is excellent and the food is tasty and well prepared. There are many restaurants in this area. Papa Razzi ranks in my top 5 for value and ambiance. On our most recent visit, we... read more

Sauce was served on the side, as ordered. And as we were getting ready to eat, our waittress, Sophie, collected all the spoons. So guess what we soon had to stand up and get just after she left? After we had to keep asking for water, because she didn't check, I told her to leave the container. Service was not... More

This is a nice alternative to Bertucci's(which is also very nice). 'Very similar in service, too! 'Worth a visit!

I used to love this restaurant. Just not as good as it used to be. I ordered the margarita pizza and it seemed like it was left over and reheated. They were kind enough to give me another which was much better but not as good as it was years ago. Also ordered the beef carpaccio which was also disappointing.

The food is to die for at Papa Razzi, and the Wellesley restaurant has a very accommodating staff. Go as soon as you can and indulge in their oven fresh focaccia and amazing flavors!

My family loves to go to Papa Razzi in Wellesley. Every time we go we try something different and have never ordered a dish that we did not like! Everything they make is delicious. The service is pretty quick and the restaurant is very spacious. Overall I would recommend this as a great Italian restaurant in the area!

I dined with a group of five women. We each had a different entree and everyone was delighted with their choice. I especially liked the availability of gluten-free pasta and other GF menu items. Papa Razzi in Wellesley certainly doesn't present itself as a chain. If others in the chain were like this one I would be seeking them out... More

Friendly service and variable food, some good to very good and some have little to do with fine Italian style food, except for the ingredients. Just had two meals there and both would not cause me to recommend it. We went once as it was the only place open late in this part of Wellesley that was not just a... More

This restaurant is always busy so you might have to wait for a table especially if a larger group. My son has loved coming here; pasta when he was young, steak now that he is an adult. Great fish specials. Huge brownie sundae that can be shared. Complimentary valet parking has been added since my last visit.

Outstanding food! We started with some appetizers: the Rollatini Melanzana was superb with wonderful flavor as was the Mozzarella Fritta and the Bruschetta. For the main disk I had the Vitello Parmigiano. The veal was tender and the breading was well seasoned. Their sauce is flavorful without overpowering the dish. My wife had the special lasagna dish and it was... More
