“A great place for lunch!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I had the pleasure of eating lunch at Papa.Razzi in the Short Hill's Mall this past week. The food and service were both high quality. Many of the items on the menu contained citrus, balsamic vinegar, something spicy, or tomato sauce which left me fewer options than usual given my low-acid dietary needs.

I ended up having a caprese salad which I rated as better than average, and the risotto special which was cooked to perfection.

If I'm shopping, I will return to this restaurant for its service, ambiance, acceptable food quality and somewhat hidden location which makes it less busy, and a nice escape from the mall crowd.

“Great restaurant rd Great food a worn out decor”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Spent the day with family in short hills mall and decided to get something to eat and since my last time to cheesecake factory was gross (found roach) we decided to go into papa razzi after friends had recommended the place. The service was spot on the food was good and the price was great. The only knock is the dated look. To bad because this place exceeds expectations.

“Great, fresh Trattoria-type Italian”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Thisw place is family friendly but much more upscale than a pizzeria atmosphere. The pasta is fresh and there is a great bar and wine list.

“Good Italian food attached to a mall? Yes please!”
Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

Start with their bruschetta and GET the mozzarella. Ask for some bread and oil, fresh and warm! Their pastas are amazingly good, the arabiatta sauce spice (and slightly tart)..rave room for the gellato.
Their cappuccinos aren't bad either- all in all a good dining experience. Our waitress was awesome, real attentive, quick, and courteous.
I'm glad I chose to go here over the chains in Short Hill mall (legal sea food, CPK)...
