Papa Razzi in the Garden City Mall in Cranston is an upscale restaurant - not like the other fast food places. The menu selections, food quality and service are all very good. They are part of a small chain of restaurants mostly in Massachusetts and seem to have their act together. Very pleasant change of pace for lunch while shopping.

Went yesterday for lunch and it was very enjoyable! Like the brunch menu, had frittatta, which was very good. Came with a Bellini and delicious blueberry bread. Waitress Carolyn was delightful. Glad to see the improvement since they changed management. Look forward to dining there again soon.

Papa Razzi's, in Garden City, Cranston, RI is a friendly, professionally run spot with great food, great staff and a great atmosphere!! Most people think a "chain" restaurant is bland & cookie cutter, but this shop has a wide variety of dishes, perfect for your mood of the evening. The chicken risotto & veal parmesan are always tasty and cooked... More

Going to dinner is an interesting thing. Some go to celebrate special occasions. Some go to meet friends and chat. I/we go to try different places and sample food and drink. I like the feel, the hustle and bustle. I like the fact you feel welcomed from the time you hit to door until you leave. Lynn our server was... More

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 excellent. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is casual-classy, even... 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!
