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.

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.

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.
