There for a large group dinner (business meal). This is one of the 'go to' places for my employer. They always do a nice job and handle the groups well.

We got tot he Papa Razzi in Wellesley at 8 pm Easter Sunday after a long tiring drive back from NJ in traffic. We were anxious for a quick plate of pasta a good glass of wine and to get home. The problem was that we sat for 15 minutes before any waiter or server came over to pour us... More

I love the way they do the veal schnitzel. Prepared just right every time. 4 of us went on a friends night out and 3 of us ordered the same dish. It is amazing, light, simple and delicious. Also, so easy for it to go bad, which it never has. It was a great night out and we enjoyed it... More

For over a decade Papa Razzi has been a family favorite. I remember my youngest, then about 6 and now 21, ordering the carpaccio and having a surprised waitress ask, "Does she know what that is?" She did, and we all loved it, and the rest of their food. The Chestnut Hill Mall PR was my wife's staple lunch for... More

We have eaten hundreds of times at Papa Razzi over the years and have many happy family memories there. So when we found ourselves in the area, we went back for old times sake. The parking is limited, the staff are very friendly and accommodating, and the restaurant was quite busy. We have always enjoyed the carpaccio - but the... More

Not too bad. Certainly busy and lively. But the food is just pretty ordinary. Nothing special. If you are hungry and in the area, go there. Don't make a special trip. It has the feel of a chain restaurant -- and there indeed are several other Papa Razzi's in the area. Very limited parking. Good front desk. The ravioli was... More

Well I've been going to Pappa's for decades, ever since it opened around 1990 or so I believe. I really like it, the food is Italian and excellent, and the wines as well. The staff deserves superlatives in all areas. They are courteous, efficient, and a real asset. In the Summer we like to dine on their Patio, they keep... More

We shared a wonderful meal with friends who were visiting from Slovakia. Atmosphere, Service and Great Food helped assure a night full of fun and friendship. After enjoying a nice bottle of Pinot Noir, we had soup (Minnestrone) Antipasto and homemade bread and dipping sauce. A large Insulata preceded our entrees which we thoroughly enjoyed. They included Chicken Piccata, Sauteed... More

I now only go there to get bread sticks. I think they are $1 a dozen and totally worth the trip. The staff is super friendly and the scene loud and family friendly.
