Papa Razzi Restaurant Review

: Located in the tony Mall at Short Hills, Papa Razzi provides a respite for the harried shopper as well as an attractive dining destination for couples, friends and families, even when the high-end shops surrounding it are closed for the day. The food is modern Italian, defined as a brighter, lighter take on the traditional, and it succeeds with thin-crust pizzas from a wood-burning oven, pasta dishes with light sauces and hearty entrées. Start with gamberi allo spiedo---grilled shrimp with braised spinach and lemon vinaigrette---or the panzanella---a variation on the classic salad with mixed greens, capers, tomatoes, torn focaccia and Vermont goat cheese in a red wine vinaigrette. For an entrée, we suggest the lombatina di vitello, a bone-in center-cut 14-ounce veal chop with wild mushrooms, Marsala and fresh vegetables. Although the wine list is limited, Papa Razzi offers some interesting and fairly priced tasting flights of three two-ounce pours of each varietal.

Dining at Papa Razzi

I have been dining here for 3 years without a single problem. Its my favorite place for lunch; the service is always excellent. Its always clean; I am sure they take the sanitation and pest control very seriously because it's always immaculate. I would recommend it to anyone; the lunches are delightful!
Not fresh food

I went to this restaurant with my family a few days ago. As an appetizer we got called Antipasto casa, which is not so good has some fresh cheese and some Veggies. I got it to go because my main entree had arrived. Later at home I noticed a big puffy black spot on the cheese I was about to eat from this dish. I looked again to make sure and guess what? It was fungus. How gross! I had to throw out the whole dish. I called the manager right away, he said I had to speak to the general manager to get my money back. I have called about three times to talk to the manager and left messages for him to call me back, I have not heard from him yet. The food is not so good for the price and the service also is not great.
