We have been going to Papa Razzi for many years (visiting all the Papa Razzis around Boston, and even in Georgetown, Washington, when it was still open). It has always been our son's 'go to' favorite restaurant, and since moving to Connecticut, we have made it a Christmas tradition to visit the Newbury Street Papa Razzi every year. We always... More

First time we have visited. We got straight off a plane and met friends to celebrate. The staff were friendly and though we must have looked a complete mess they helped us with our luggage and seated us very quickly. The waitress was friendly and polite and pointed out lots of vegetarian options on the menu. The Blood Orange Manhatton... More

Me and my partner recently went to Papa Razzi on our last evening in Boston. The service we received was absolutely terrible, the host was rude and the server wasn't much better. The actual food that was served was okay. There are so many nice restaurants in Boston, give this one a miss and try another in town!

When in Boston it's not a bad choice. Location on Newbury street is perfect. Atmosphere is good. Somewhat chain like... Service is usually good.. But not fine dining..... Food is usually good but again somewhat generic... All and all.... A solid OK

This restaurant is located in Newbury street along many shops. I and my wife visited here for lunch and we really enjoyed the special panini for the day and pizza. The service was good and comparable to some nice French restaurants. Next year, I will visit this place again.

Always a great stop on Newbury street for a nice dinner! We went on a Monday and they have a new promotion where all entrees $15.99 and over are only $15.99. So amazing its a great deal for all their entrees! Everything is delicious. The bread and olive oil infused with red pepper flakes is the best. Always a great... More
