Stopped by for a business lunch and found it to be a very nice restaurant, great wait staff, and very good food. The lunch menu is relatively diverse with an assortment of salads, antipastos, soups, and pastas.

I was in town for the night with teenage kids and we wanted something more than fast-food or pizza after several days of traveling. This was recommended by the hotel and it hit the spot. The waitresses were very polite and provided good service. It...More

For a chain, Papa Razzi is one of the better ones in New England.(Certainly a notch above the Olive Garden) Food is always reliable and consistent. With that being said, the service is not. Our waitress (who is seemingly a veteran there) this evening was...More

I seriously suggest reserving a table instead of just waltzing in, because this place was PACKED. To be fair, it was a Saturday night. I ordered the calamari for an appetizer and split a pizza with my dad. Before the food came out, foccacia bread...More

It’s a great option if you are looking for a bar area that is not overly noisy. Equally, the large restaurant area has comfortable seating. Service is excellent. Breaded Chicken is outstanding.

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.

This place is temporarily closed due to a major renovation. Papa Razzi of Wellesley will temporarily be closing on Monday, June 18 so we can undergo a transformation throughout the restaurant, including an expanded and refreshed bar area and a reinvented private dining space. We’ll be back at the end of August with the same great things you love about Papa Razzi, but with some delicious new additions and a new look. We’re excited for all the good things to come and we look forward to seeing you when we reopen. In the meantime, if you need your Papa Razzi fix, please join us at our restaurants in Boston or Concord. Gift cards and BENE rewards can be used at those locations as always, and will of course still be valid for when we welcome you back in Wellesley later this summer.
