I find my meals at Papa Razzi to be fine but nothing special. They just don't seem worth the the price point. We tried out the newly renovated Papa Razzi and I found the experience pretty much the same as before. The service was fine,...More

Great Italian food and service. Went on a very busy Friday night. Appreciate the valet parking. Orders included chicken parmesan, rigatoni, meatballs and burrata...all were delicious. Decent wine list. Will definitely return on our next visit to Babson College.

Over the course of several visits have found the service to be intermittent, sometimes inattentive. Food is fair to average Italian and somewhat overpriced. Few options for similar in immediate area but if able, travel a little further and will do better.

Pappa Razzi typically has an Easter Sunday featured menu. It gets busy that day so reservations are recommended.

They have a wide selection of pastas and salads if that qualifies as vegan. Just tell your server and the kitchen can usually meet your needs.
