Very good meal and good service

Nice italian food and service is always good. The spaghetti carbonara is one of my favorites, and they also have really good pizzas. Also a great spot to go with the family.

We've been coming here for over 10 years, and Papa is truly like our neighborhood restaurant where everybody knows your name. We've seen their staff turn over, but they continue their friendly service and good food. We continue to come here to this day.

I love this place because of its food and its staff! I personally know someone who works there, so it may just be me, but mostly the staff are really nice people. I usually order pasta (orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe), and I really like it. I have never had any of their pizzas, even though they look pretty... More

Don't miss this favorite. Great Italian food, the eggplant appetizer is the best. Salads are excellent and the chicken Milanese is not to be missed. This resturant always aims to please.

Service was good, but the food was overcooked: the shrimp was dried out, and the pasta's sauce showed telltale signs of being held too long under a heat lamp. The manager gave us complimentary desserts, but the restaurant was way overpriced in comparison to what we were served. Sadly, the problem was mostly in the preparation; the initial food quality...

My choice wasn't great, but as we shared "tastes" there was some pretty amazing stuff. The wait staff was very good, attentive and efficient.

Overall, Papa Razzi at the Short Hills Mall is just average. Avoid the main meat, chicken and fish courses and stick with appetizers and pasta. Pizza looks good, but haven't tried it yet. Service is OK but a little inconsistent. It's a big space so you almost never need a reservation or need to wait.

The lunch menu is susperb. The sandwiches and salads are outstanding. The service is adequate. And they offer a large variety of wines and beers.

Visited October 2014. Went on a weeknight, we were seated right away. Service was quick & pleasant. Received breadsticks as munchy while we waited for drinks to arrive. Ordered grilled eggplant wrapped around ricotta cheese and prosciutto as appetizer. Really yummy. I had pasta, g/f had pizza. Both were very good. Portions were large enough to get full & take...

Great place for dinner. They have great bread. It's so good. I had the salmon with spinach and baked potato. Servers were great and service. Great atmosphere. Their calamari appetizer is excellent.
