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.

Half-priced wines by the bottler or glass on Wednesday nights. A strange, overpowering smell permeated the dining room at one point. Smelled to me like burning plastic. Thank goodness we had no food in front of us at the time. Papperdelle special was a mess. Fish was overcooked and so was pasta. Instead of lovely, singular noodles, I had a... More

My wife and I went here for lunch while browsing around Lafayette Village. We had a calzone and pizza. Both had fresh ingredients and toppings, and both tasted great! It's very clean and the interior seems new and the service was great. The prices were above average for lunch, but well worth it. I definitely recommend this place!

Again, Raleigh shows it's not the city for great Italian food. Paparazzi is in an upscale area and I was expecting some serious Italian cooking. We went for lunch to try it out. Pasta with a sauce, not a meat sauce, just a plain sauce, is $12 - $14 for lunch without salad or drink. I decided to get a... More

Quirky location (french town setup), good atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent fare. The restaurant is dimmed with pictures of celebrities adorning the walls-Hepburn, Travolta, Sinatra... Someone stood by a pizza oven tossing fresh dough into the air for fresh crusts for artisan pizzas, the swing back and forth of the kitchen door revealed workers putting together what seemed like fresh ingredients...

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 beverages (a... 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

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.
