Painful Service & Average Food

I had high hopes from the reviews and the restaurant's proclamation that everyone is treated like a star at Paparazzi. Not so for our table. We visited as a group of 6 for an early 5 pm reservation. We were seated promptly but that was the end of the good service. After waiting a very long time for... read more

Love this place, service has always been terrific, food is awesome, pizzas are cooked in a wood fireplace. The restaurant has a great decor and always feels warm and cozy.

We went for the Sunday Brunch and it was outstanding. It is a gourmet buffet with anything from pizza to made to order omelets. I think the price was $21.95... plus this included unlimited mimosas, coffee, tea, soft drinks, and fruit juice. It is beautiful inside as well. It was a little noisy but it was very busy! Would def... More

As some of the other reviews indicate, Paparazzi's is located in a plaza designed to look like an old Italian town, and if you don't squint too hard, they've done a pretty good job. The only downside is that some of the establishments have taken this a tiny bit too seriously, tilting slightly from trendy to smug. If you can... More

We had the Spinach Lasagna and Butternut Pasta. It was prepared quick and perfectly. Tasty and plentiful. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was nice. Located in a small trendy plaza with plenty to do before or after the meal. The Tiramisu is a MUST HAVE!!! Extensive wine list and live music on occasion. Worth your time to check... More

A great "find" in N. Raleigh. Unique and traditional Italian meals and gourmet wood fired pizza paired with a good wine...great service and comfortable relaxed atmosphere. An upscale neighborhood restaurant. Homemade desserts.

This restaurant gets it all right! The food is delicious and is distinctive, which is difficult to do with Italian food, I think. The decor is nice. The atmosphere is lovely and is conducive to a romantic or a family celebration. The service is pleasant and professional. We are locals and go there often.

This was our 2nd visit to Paparazzi. The first was for Sunday Brunch and the 2nd was for pizza. We love the experience both times. Reminds me of food I had in Northern Italy. The pizza was the best I've had in the Raleigh area. I got the Fig with goat cheese...which was amazing. My husband got the meat pizza.... More

I made a visit to this restaurant for Sunday Brunch and the food was absolutely delicious. There is an omelet bar where patrons can have made to order omelets. The severs are friendly and attentive. Some of the breakfast items included sausage links, bacon, hash brown, French toast, eggs benedict, and waffles. The lunch items consisted of pasta, pizzas, freshly... More

The food is always great here and typically the service is quite good also. This visit was our first experience at lunch time and it was an entirely different experience. Our family was celebrating and made lunch reservations. I mention that because the place was virtually empty the entire time we were there. The one server on duty had many... More
