We used to come here every time we went to the Mall at Short Hills. We had lunch at around 3:00 pm. Servers were sitting and talking and we waited almost ten minutes before a server noticed we weren't being served. I noticed the table next to us had to speak loud get the server's attention to get served...... What... More

To go to an Italian restaurant and order a Cesare salad that is bland and flavor was just not there and they don't even offer anchovies is a big disappointment. However the Spaghetti Bolonese was excellent with a thick meat sauce and cooked corectly. The Calamari Fritti appetizer was a little heavy on breading and just ok. they offer Gluten... More

This Mother's Day, I was faced with the dilemma of trying to get last minute reservations for brunch when my daughter suggested Papa Razzi at the Short Hills Mall. For us, it was both convenient and could accommodate a party of 5 for a 1:15 reservation . I have been there before for both lunch and dinner but never brunch.... More

My husband and I had lunch here after Christmas shopping. The line at the restaurant next door (Joe's) was the usual "out the door" mode so we decided to try Pappa Razzi. Very upscale atmosphere and the food was very good. We both had sandwiches which were good sized and tasty. Will definitely return during future shopping trips.

When we visit the short Hills Mall, we either eat at Joe's or Paparazzi which is right next to Joe's. We discovered this restaurant while waiting for almost 30 minutes at the restaurant next-door. It has the feel of a fire dining experience. Paparazzi has a warmer feel to it. They have excellent specials alongside a menu with all of... More

Stopped in here while shopping. Had a beer, and a sandwich. Server was really nice, and treated us as if we were royalty. They made sure the game us on, and quickly offered us refills on what we needed. Food was simple but good. This reason that this gets a rating of Excellent is because I would not hesitate for...

Good food. Good sized portions - without being too large. Daily specials. Little bit pricey. Popular as in the Short Hills mall.

Location location location, food? Not as good. True the location makes it a slam dunk but I'm not a big fan of robo trained servers who clearly are following the managers dictates about providing good service. Food is diner food at best and a lot costlier. Shopping in the mall? Fine but a special trip, I don't think so.

Great food! reasonable prices. Good service. Try the fried mozzarella and tomato soup! Ambiance is great, can be a bit noisy, try for a booth along the windows.

I used to frequent Joes a lot. But honestly it's way too crowded and the food is too salty. So we decided to start going next door to paparazzi. Everyone I are with enjoyed the meal and loved the fact that we were not rushed. Joes is notorious for bringing out your dinner before you even get to take two... More
