The tiramisu was great; and the salad was good ; no pizza; shrimp with linguine was average at best; chicken Picata was very good ; crab ravioli was terrible; the service was really bad as there was not that many patrons and so we expected to get the attention of our servant to no avail; drank a Mojito and was...

I've been here dozens of times over the past 15-20 years and it has consistently been a great go-to spot for a nice salad or pasta. If recommend the panzanella salad -- it's my favorite. As I remember, the desserts are good, too, but I'm usually satisfied by the meal and don't order dessert.

The atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing; i.e., not as loud and hectic as a Cheesecake Factory. They serve thin breadsticks (the crunchy kind, not the soft kind), so that was a little off-putting. But I'm not a big bread eater, so not a huge deal. My spaghetti bolognese was delicious (loved the meats and mushrooms they put in there,... More

We came here because we love their pizza and it turns out they had a fire and can't make pizza any more. We still had a very nice lunch with good service.

Went to this restaurant as my family wantd to dine out for my mom's birthday. What a disappointment ... All our food was extremely cold, felt like straight from the freezer. After we tried to eat our food, as we had no choice because it was too late to go to another place, we have to wait and wait and... More

I would highly recommend Papa Razzi to anyone and everyone. My husband & I stopped at Papa Razzi on June 1 for an early dinner. We grew up near by but currently live out of state. We were in town for a family event and decided to stop at Papa Razzi. I used to come to this restaurant back in... More

After a difficult day on the road my wife and I decided to stop here on the way home for lunch, and we were glad we did. The place was not crowded (just after 2PM), and it looked inviting. I was a bit concerned due to the fact that it is in the short Hills Mall, but they were unfounded.... More

We had excellent seafood ravioli, lamb chops and a great salad. The dessert was very rich and too filling. It's convenient if you're shopping at the Short Hills mall. Service was a bit slow, but we enjoyed the tasty breadsticks.

It's hard to imagine an Italian restaurant doing something special that sets it apart from other restaurants of the same ilk. Papa Razzi doesn't. Its minestrone has chunks of meat I didn't expect. It was accommodating enough to give me the linguine without calamari, the sauce was heavy. Located in the Short Hills Mall, it's convenient for a reasonably priced... More

We were here for a large family dinner a couple of weeks ago. I had not been to this place in ages and I can say that the quality of the food has gone down. The taste wasn't as good as it used to be. I don't think I will be coming here again. Only reason that it isn't getting... More
