Went there recently to celebrate our son's college graduation from Boston University. We made reservations for this busy weekend in Boston. Located on scenic Newbury Street in Boston. Location near the Hynes Convention Center and all there is to do in Back Bay. The food portions were very generous and not outrageously expensive. The wait staff was very good, courteous... More

This is a nice little place in downtown Boston. Seating options both inside and out, although whilst I was there, it was a beautiful day and, unsurprisingly, there was a wait for seating outside. I sat inside, upstairs. The service was prompt and friendly. Brunch menu includes a Mimosa or Bellini with plenty of yummy options. As a vegetarian, I... More

Having just had minor surgery we decided to forgo fighting the rush hour traffic and catch a bite to eat in town. We were right around the corner from the Papa Razzi so we stopped in there. They have a nice, heated "umbrella" out door area as well as indoor upstairs and downstairs seating. We were early, about 5 and... More

My daughter with celiac disease loves this restaurant! Great gluten-free pizza! Love the outdoor seating in the Fall but the white tablecloths were nice this Spring inside.

This might not be North End Boston Italian but on a Friday night when reservations were hard to find this was a great find. I have a serious allergy and they were attentive and the chef came out with the dish to make sure I liked it. Portions were generous and flavorful. Definitely would go again.

Ate here on the eve of the marathon and had no complaints. Because it was purely a fuelling trip, stuck with pasta with tomato sauce and a bruschetta. Service was very fast, wait staff were good. Food was ok, nothing exceptional, but served its purpose!

Friends of ours made reservations here for us for dinner and we couldn't have been happier! Being marathon weekend it was crazy busy but the servers were still attentive and accommodating. They were even smiling though you know they had been run off their feet. The food was excellent. I had risotto and my 3 friends each had a spaghetti... More

We have been to Papa Razzi many times over the years. Unfortunately, our experiences have declined each time. I don't know if the move to the new location has any bearing on their decline, but it is very sad. My loyalty has ended. Our most recent fiasco started fairly well. We had a nice waiter who seemed to know what... More
