Food was average tasting. Will not be going back. Long wait time. The server was fine. Cheap on the bread. Instead of a bread basket. You received one piece.

Every time I happen to be in New Jersey, I try to set up a stop at Papa Razzi. The Italian one-word is "paparazzi", a slightly negative term for describing photographers who sometimes take pictures of famous people without asking for permission, in private or...More

We eat every once in a while. The food is not spectacular but good with nice portion sizes. The calamari appetizer is great. The pastas are good and the staff is friendly. All in all a pleasant place for a simple relaxing meal
