“Great food in an unbeatable location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

Diego and Christina offer great service and excellent food in a wonderful waterside location. Diego will greet you once and never forget your name!! We've been coming to Antigua for MANY years and just love this location. Now we have a wonderful reason to go more often!

Paparazzi offers a full traditional Italian menu, including a variety of amazingly delicious thin-crust pizzas. The pasta dishes are plentiful with very generous portions.

Paparazzi is a relatively new addition to the Antigua restaurant scene, but we look forward to many more years to come!!

“Real, authentic, fresh Italian cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

While vacationing in Antigua, we decided to make the 45 minute trip down to Paparazzi's...and it was well worth it! The delightful owners are from Montreal, and being Montrealers ourselves, we understand the importance of authentic cuisine from any culture. Christina & Diego carried their Italian heritage with them to Antigua, making authentic food that reminded us of a home-cooked meal.

We shared a pasta dish, followed by a pizza and the catch of the day (tuna). All was cooked to perfection.

The open-aired outdoor seating was wonderful, as the restaurant is situated right on the dock. The waterfront views are breathtaking.

And of course, what's an Italian meal without an ending of Grappa or Limoncello? The owners were kind enough to sit and share a drink with us until we were ready to leave. Christina & Diego have stories for days, which made for a very interesting and memorable experience.

A must try!

“A Memorable Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

What good be more delightful than a waterfront seat with a beautiful view of Nelson's Dockyard and English Harbor, great food ,wine and friendly attentive service? The Penne alla Carbonara was decadently delicious. For those who arrive on their boats, a dinghy dock provides easy access to dining here.

“Pizzas rule at Paparazzi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

The owner Diego has created a must eat place with Paparazzi. The pizza's rule at this waterfront restaurant, where you often see Diego's wife behind the scenes in the kitchen. Thou the pizzas are well worth a try, don't miss out on the pastas either and if you want to kick it up a notch, they are not afraid of a little spice. Decent wines offerd and a worth the visit setting.
