Nice atmosphere, good service and food

Papa Razzi has the best chicken Caesar salad I've ever had, so that's what I usually order. But the menu is pretty varied, with many good, interesting choices. I know, because I usually sample others' selections. However, this is not a good place for the calorie-conscious. The service is usually... read more

From the moment the wonderful hosting staff open the door for you, to seating, to service, I have and my family have never been disappointed at Papa Razzi! It is really a quality spot in beautiful Garden City, Cranston, Rhode Island. I even enjoy the outdoor patio in warmer weather and also like sitting at the bar because of the... More

We went on a Monday night and the place was full but not so much that we had a long wait. The food was above average and the wait staff attentive. There is special pricing on Mondays! It is good for a family meal, dinner after shopping or a casual date night. I would not hesitate to recommend this place... More

Papa Razzi is a great stop... Always fantastic food, good service and upscale yet casual atmosphere. The daily special risotto is typically amazing, appetizers to share works every time and smooth cocktails make for a nice night. You can custom make any dish on the menu as well. Tell them what pasta you choose and what toppings to add and... More

I frequent Papa Razzi whenever I'm in the Rhode Island area...the food is delicious . the calamari and mozz fritti are my favorite appetizers... I am obsessed with the panzanella salad also. This place is great if you are looking for good Italian food, but not a fancy restaurant!

Papa Razzi is a typical upscale Italian Restaurant. That is not necessary bad but there are no surprises. The food is good, the prices reflect the upscale category. All plates on the menu are in Italian with an English translation in italics in case you forget that it is an Italian Restaurant. All the plates are familiar and well done.... More

Seated promptly for our 5:30 reservation on a busy Sat. night. Our server was attentive and professional, food was well-prepared to temp, and the white linens add to the overall upscale vibe of the place.

Went to Papa Razzi for brunch with a friend. Tasty and healthy menu options. Portions could be a little larger but it was still good. Great bread and olive oil.

We have been to Paparazzi on numerous occasions and have brought others to the restaurant as well. We have never been disappointed with our meals and the service is excellent (there was one exception, but we avoid him). This restaurant is our go-to place when we want to have a good meal in a comfortable place. I would consider it... More

We had 6:30pm reservations for four adults. Sat at a nice table in the center of the dining room and the server was very good. We started dinner with apps and drinks. The draft beer selection was limited to about 6 beers but the Stella I ordered was cold and delicious. For apps, we ordered the fried mozzarella and bruchetta.... More
