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
The staff was very knowledgeable about Celiacs and super friendly! I had the fried mozzarella as an appetizer and the chefs special as an entree. They were both ah-mazing!! You can’t go wrong with the food and service here. We’ll be back!
Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Manager even came out to say the chef was aware of my son’s celiac disease and nut allergies and was taking extra precautions. The pizza was only so-so but in the mozzarella sticks and chicken Parmigiana were fabulous. I highly recommend this place.
Awesome!!!!! First and foremost, my waitress had celiac as well so she was extremely knowledgeable. Gluten free bread, gluten free fried mozzarella!!!!!! And tons of dinner options. SO good. and the foot came out extremely quickly
Cannot say enough about how amazing Papa Razzi is. Yum! So many options.
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.
Best GF pizza crust I've ever had. GF ravioli! Yummy
Mozzarella fritta and ravioli- enough said. Knowledgeable and friendly staff
Amazing food! Fried mozzarella and pizza was delicious! Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great Gluten Free menu! Chicken parm, mozzarella sticks, pastas. The waiter even had them bring me a gluten free roll.
The waitress asked about food allergies and brought out a GF menu. Very good selection. She also brought out GF rolls for me as well as regular rolls for my family -- along with separate oil bowls. Food was very good as well.
Great gf menu options. Fried mozzarella and pizza tasted amazing.
Amazing gf fried mozzarella ! So yummy and pasta good too! Pizza was ok but definitely have had better. They seemed to pay great attention to my allergy concerns! Overall A+
Love this place!!! My new favorite in Boston! My waitress was amazing and so attentive. Many of the options can be made dairy free as well :) I even got to have bread to start!
SO many amazing options. Last time I was there I had fried mozzarella as an appetizer and goat cheese ravioli as my meal. They also bring out bread for you. Delicious and I didn't get sick (celiac)!!
Great options for celiac! Carefully prepared. Very friendly.
Recommend by another gluten free friend on Instagram (follow along: @celiacinthecity) and SO glad I tried it while visiting Boston!!! GF menu, manager discussed options, server was on top of it and made suggestions, assured me it would be celiac safe. Had chicken parm and it was amazing!!! Will be back any time I'm in Boston!!
Was so happy with the service and the food was wonderful! Totally understand celiac. Soon as I said i had celiac I didn't have to ask any questions they told me all I needed to know.
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!
The spicy sauce and GF penne pasta is awesome!!!! GF "bread" not so much.
Amazing! The fried mozzarella was delicious! Chicken parm was best ever and they are so celiac aware, very pleased.
We used this app to find dinner on our first night in Boston. We were dinning with 3 people who need to be GF. We were all impressed with the gf and non gf items. My son, who has celiac disease, said it was one of his best meals in a restaurant ever!
Best chicken parm I have ever had! I can't wait to go back
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.
huge gf menu, great service. my husband has celiac and got the pepperoni and sausage pizza and really loved the crust! no complaints here!
Phenomenal!!! Gluten-free menu with plenty of choices. The gluten-free bread was the best I have had at a restaurant, and the minestrone soup was delicious. My companion had glutenous food and said it was also wonderful.
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.
Loved the mozzarella! Had Chicken Pene. The noodles tasted like boxed gfree from the grocery, but the sauce, chicken, and veggies more than made up for it. Yummy and no side effects can't ask for more than that. Recommend
Awesome gluten free menu! Loved my gluten free pasta, roll, and fried, breaded mozzarella!! Recommended highly!!
Absolute best gf pasta. Period. So nice to be able to have a full meal like everyone else in the party- AND have options too! Gf rolls, salad, soup, and even fried mozzarella and breaded chicken parm. Favorite Boston restaurant.
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.
the four cheese gf pizza was great. nice atmosphere. bought out a gf roll while my dining companion ate his wheat bread. added to a great day in Boston.
I can't tell you about the food because the service was so bad we had to leave before we ordered. Too bad we have had great experiences at other Papa Razzi's.
had a few GF options (pizza and GF noodles available for pasta dishes). my wife thought the pizza was okay.
Had the pizza to-go and it was a bit gummy. The toppings were also sparse.
I think the pizza is just ok, not great. they seemed to be cautious, and everything they brought out they announced as gluten free.
I love it here. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the food is so good! Everything I have gotten here has been great. This is one of my favorites!
Gluten Free pasta was good. Had to ask for bread multiple times and it basically a Pizza crust, rock hard with olive oil and herbs. Waiter asked if GF was an allergy or choice so they could alert he kitchen.
This is one if my favorite restaurants. They don't over cook their (from scratch!) gf pasta and they'll even bring you a basket of gf bred to the table. My friends all agreed it was even better than the regular bread.
amazing pasta they can make you any sauce in it. also had gf bread and gf pizza!
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.
The best GF pizza I’ve had. Started with the kale salad (delicious) and my husband got the GF ravioli. While that was also good- get the pizza. It’s outstanding. Cheese baked into the crust gives it a wonderful flavor and texture. Also great service here. Will be back!!
My celiac son got violently ill shortly after eating here. The restaurant promised that their g/f items were safe....obviously not. Now my 8 year old is sick...never again will we eat in your restaurant! If you have Celiac, stay far, far away!!
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.
Visited with my gluten eating family, they were fantastic and very knowledgeable about the celiac, gluten free, and cross contamination. Even when our food was brought to the table, it was done so as to not get my gluten free food contaminated. Food was delicious. Will absolutely go back when back in Boston!
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.
They were fantastic about my dietary restrictions. I had the gluten free mushroom ravioli which was very flavorful as well as the mozzarella appetizer. There were several other options on the menu that looked tempting too. The staff knew about gluten and the managers oversaw the entire process.
Wow. Is all I can say. My jaw hit the flow when I could actually order fried cheese and chicken parm with pasta Alfredo. It was phenomenal. I devoured as much as I could then took the rest home and could wait to heat it up the next day. No sickness I always wait to review just in case.
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.
All of the food is amazing and they make everything to order so anything can be modified. My best friend works at this branch. She says it is considered as important to be allergy trained as it is to learn the menu for servers and hosts alike at this place. Have never gotten sick here.
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.
My server was very knowledgeable about gluten free. The manager came over and told me my French fries would be made in a GF frier. I had a burger on a GF bun with sweet potato fries. The manager personally brought me my entree. I highly recommend this place!
I went to a catered event here. We had a few brunch choices. When I asked for the frittata without crostini, the waitress immediately asked if I needed a gluten-free meal. She brought me the delicious frittata and substituted the tiramisu dessert with a bowl of fresh fruit. Everything was done without any attention being brought to me and the only people who even realized hat I had a special meal were the folks sitting with me! Well done!
I once discovered a strand of spaghetti in my gluten free ziti, and they informed me that it meant my pasta was cooked in the water with regular pasta and that I should stop eating immediately. they were immediately on top of it, comped our check, called to check on me, let me know they were having a corporate meeting to discuss the mistake. I understand mistakes happen, and they handled it like a good restaurant should.
