My first time at Papa Razzi and I wasn't disappointed! I was recommended this restaurant because I have Celiac Disease and needed somewhere that offered Gluten Free. It's a rare occasion I get to enjoy delicious authentic GF Italian, and Papa Razzi did it right! I ordered the fried mozzarella appetizer and I had Chicken Parmesan for my entree. Both delicious. Even the non-gf friends I was with enjoyed the mozzarella. I will definitely recommend this restaurant and I will be back!!

I’ve been here a few times and it’s the best gluten free pizza I’ve had. They have great mozzarella sticks too! Almost all of their menu can be made gluten free and they’ll offer a GF roll, too. Love it!

Best GF pizza I’ve ever eaten. I had no reaction. Staff was knowledgeable and made suggestions including requested accommodations. Unfortunately they’re closing in October to open up under a different name close to Fenway Park. Great atmosphere!

Daughter has celiac and got GF pasta and sauce. Food is very good. Waiter brought regular pasta after assuring we would get GF pasta. Manager corrected it after we asked if it was GF when brought out. That’s why we ask whenever food is brought out.

For non-celiacs, I’d say the food is great. I used to go here because the staff is typically knowledgeable at these chains. This one? Not sure if the kitchen didn’t pay attention or the server..? But I was so sick for a full day and will never go back. Got it from their supposed gluten free frier chicken parm. Not gluten free.

While the mozzarella appetizer was delicious, the pizza was so dry it was basically inedible. The dinner roll was awful; don’t waste your time with it. I wish I had ordered a salad instead!! The server talked me into the pizza, saying he loves the GF crust. They still get 3 stars because they were really cautious with and respectful of my allergies

I was so excited about all of the gluten free options and so impressed by my waiters seeming knowledge of gluten allergies but when the food came out the food runner gave me "gluten free chicken sandwiches" which is what my friend i was there with had ordered not gluten free. When he said this I said oh no it's the other way around the chicken parm is the one that is gluten free. He said oh my mistake gave me the chicken parm and then went away from the table. I was slightly concerned but assumed that the food runner would not have knowingly served someone with a severe food allergy something extremely high in gluten. Sorry to say I was extremely sick for the rest of the day and night and am appalled that the food runner or waiter would not have said that they made a mistake.

While I am not celiac I do have several food intolerances including gluten, eggs & diary. Everyone at Papa Razzi in Boston was wonderful & very accommodating from the Asst General Manager Julian to our waiter. The restaurant has a "scratch kitchen" so they can cook to a customer's needs. I'm not overly sensitive to cross contamination so I cannot speak to whether they have separate gf facilities but they will discuss all that with you. They had egg free gf pasta so they made me a version if their spaghetti vongole - pasta, clams, pancetta, white wine... & I asked them to add shrimp as well in an olive oil & garlic sauce. It was fantastic!

They had a GF menu and asked about allergies/restrictions before anyone ordered. I got a warm, GF roll delivered to me with the other appetizers, then a GF margarita pizza. The crust was Against the Grain-esque and the toppings were delicious (especially the sauce). The only thing I wasn't all that into was the cocktail (Rosemary, gin, cranberry- shouldn't have been so bland). I would go back.

I was so excited to try the breaded and fried mozzarella, but the whole meal was just kind of disappointing. My server was extremely nice and checked on me often, but getting my courses from the kitchen was a sloooow process. They were kind of busy and maybe there was extra time for GF precautions in the kitchen, but if that is the case I feel like that should be stated on the menu and/or by the server. I started with the Mista salad, which was described as a mix of Boston Bibb, Red and Romaine lettuces. While the serving was generous, it was about 95% Romaine. The GF roll that was served with the salad ranged from room temperature to cold. Strike 1. The fried mozzarella looked terrific - four slices of breaded and fried cheese surrounding a scoop of marinara. The breading and the marinara tasted good, but the mozzarella itself was extremely bland and the marinara caused the bottom of all four pieces to be soggy. Strike 2. Main course was Pollo Picatta. The sauce was delicious and the risotto was pretty good, but the chicken was overcooked and dry. Strike 3. I did not complain about the first two courses because I was hungry and it was taking so long to get the dishes out. I didn't want to wait for a re-do. But after the third course was yet another disappointment, I said something to the server who immediately got the manager. I didn't say anything about the salad, but I informed him of the soggy mozzarella and the dry chicken. He took the chicken off my bill and promised to speak to the chef about putting the marinara in a cup. The next time I'm in the area I may give them another try.

I think Papa Razzi is great! Went here with my cousin and my sister (who is also celiac). My sister got GF pasta and I got a pizza. Both were really good - all of their GF stuff is homemade, which I really appreciate. The pizza was pretty big, especially for a GF pizza, and I had plenty left over. I got the quattro formaggio and loved it, some of the best GF pizza I've had. I would definitely come back.

We took my son here who has celiac. The waiter was very nice and although I don’t think he really knew what celiac or gluten was, he assured us the pizza was gluten free and precautions were taken to prevent cross contamination. My kids enjoyed the pizza and had no issues. Note that the GF pizza crust only comes in 1 size, so it can’t be subbed out as part of the kids meal.

I am vegan gluten free. I was blown away by the service, professionalism, atmosphere. I asked the waiter to have the chef make anything VGF. He knew immediately what I meant. Came back with some suggestions and i ended up w a delicious GF pasta, mushroom, tomato, spinach and garlic dish. They have a good GF menu. The table settings were beautiful -cloth table cloths, good china, high quality utensils. The manager and the chef himself came to the table to make sure i was satisfied. Everyone was fabulous. i can not give enough stars.

Papa Razzi goes all out to accommodate GF diners. They have a full GF menu that they post online that includes several pasta dishes along with main dishes like Chicken Parm. The Chicken Parm was amazing! They also give you gluten free rolls to dip in their signature oil (separate container to dip in provided without asking)- they were delicious!

Have been about 10 times and have gotten sick twice. One time my reaction was so severe I ended up on morphine throwing up blood. The time I got severely sick THREE managers talked with me (as I told them I've been sick there before) and they promised me my food was safe. Ended up realizing they gave me the gluten free ravioli (could tell by shape) but gave me my dads veal parm. Will never go back and do not recommend for celiacs as when I called to tell them I got sick they really didn't care.

I have been to a few different locations and in general, they are pretty good. The Cranston location did not offer me bread (not that I needed it), and when I did have it offered in MA, it was actually pretty terrible. I've had a few salads and gf pasta, and I don't have complaints. I did get one salad served to me with croutons, but they were very apologetic and a new salad was re-delivered by the manager. I will go back, but whenever anything like that happens, I'm a little wary.

Amazingly careful about GF!!!!! If someone states an allergy, a manager must oversee the entire cooking and preparation process, and they will personally bring it to the table. Gluten-free focaccia bread too! Every sauce is made to order so even things that had dairy in them can be modified.
