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!
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 loved this place. They brought me hot GF bread fresh out of the oven with olive oil for dipping. The fried mozzarella was a treat. I was excited to try the GF ravioli and enjoyed it. I would go back again in a heartbeat.
Among the best Italian food I've eaten, not even including it being gluten free. I had the pizza and rolls. Phenomenal!
Gluten free menu, even have a great six cheese ravioli.
They just added two ravioli dishes to the GF menu! I had the mushroom and goat cheese ravioli in a sherry cream sauce last night and it was amazing. The staff here are careful and I have never been sick after a meal here.
So nice & helpful. I had three people taking care of my meal. They couldn't have been more accommodating. Very limited options for dairy-free vegetarians.
Food is good. Waiters are very careful. I have eaten there many times and have never gotten sick.
They went out of their way to ensure my meal was gluten and dairy free. The freshly made gluten free bread rocks
Great gluten free options. Their gfree penne pasta is absolutely delicious!
Amazing accommodation! The manager and our waitress were going back and forth from the kitchen to make sure that our allergies were being accommodated. My mom can't eat dairy or gluten and I'm celiac but they were so helpful and patient! The food was absolutely fantastic too! Definitely going back!
Great fresh baked roll, phenomenal pizza!!! I will definitely be back!
Great, conscientious service, fantastic food!
They are top notch when dealing with allergies. They have gluten free pasta and rolls. The manager will check in and make sure they are aware of any other allergies. I am very impressed with their service.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
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!
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.
Amazing! The fried mozzarella was delicious! Chicken parm was best ever and they are so celiac aware, very pleased.
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 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.
