Good Italian good with good portions The bolognese has a rich meaty sauce served over pasta, nice! The minestrone soup was so good that I made a trip back the next day to get more. It was comfort food for someone feeling sick. We had a good meal and hope you will too. Try it, you will like it!

We will be returning! We made reservations, thankfully because it got busy...and this place is much bigger than it appears from the parking lot. It is huge inside. Our party had the calamari app, chicken parm, margarita pizza, and sausage, ricotta, tomato, spinach pizza. I'll start with the calamari app... Holy moly! It was perfectly cooked, delicious, and so tender! It came with a white sauce but we asked for marinara and it was amazing.. I would go back just for the calamari! We were served bread and oil... the bread was so good.. please don't skip the bread, its worth the carbs, its delicious!! The chicken parm was super good. The pizzas were good, but were not crisp on the bottom, so I'd say they were slightly undercooked. Still... We will definitely be returning!

Excellent lunch with reasonable prices. Liked the chicken parmasean with the greens. The meatball sub was very big and lots of yummy bread.

Circumstances have brought me to Pappa Razzi just a few times over the span of 8 or 9 years, when special family occasions have brought me to West Concord....

Delicious meal. Excellent eggplant parmigiana. Beet salad is 2nd to none. Outstanding service. Meatball sandwich was excellent- mixture of sausage and meat. Minestrone soup was full of vegetables, pasta and beans

Very great apartment! Exceptional Italian cuisine. Visited twice while staying at the less-than-desirable Best Western next door. Meatballs, Parms (chicken/eggplant) and red sauce were all excellent, something I rarely encounter or say as an East Boston Italian. It can become busy and slow, but the bar, dining area, and even the facilities are so great that you won't mind waiting a bit!
Shannon weselovs   August 12, 2022
Absolutely fantastic... amazing food, great options, great wine options & other beverages, desserts were amazing and most of all amazing service. Everyone seems to work as a team to make it an overall perfect experience. Thank you.
Rick Medugno   July 26, 2022
Very nice place! Really good Italian food. Visited twice while staying at the not so nice Best Western next-door. Meatballs, Parms (chicken/eggplant) and red sauce were all very good (and as an east Boston Italian) I hardly ever find/say that. It does get busy and can be slow, but the bar, dining room and even restrooms are awesome so you won't mind waiting a little!

If you want a nice friendly atmosphere this is your place. The food is wonderful and the pizza is equal to Bostons North End. The waitstaff is super...
Matthew Curley   July 19, 2022
It's a shame this once-thriving local chain of a dozen or so restaurants has now dwindled to just two (Concord and Wellesley), but I'm glad their Concord location has held on, as I've been coming here my whole life, and we've always had a good experience. The food is delicious, and the wait staff is always friendly and attentive. It's a little pricey, like most decent Italian restaurants are, but the lively atmosphere and the quality food and service make for a fun venue for birthdays and other special occasions. I am by no means a regular, but every time I visit they're always busy. I hope that that, and the fact they've managed to stay open through the pandemic when so many other restaurants have been forced to close, are signs that Papa Razzi Concord is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Great restaurant. The kitchen is open for diners to watch, and the cuisine was renowned. We ate at the bar while engaging in delightful conversation with the bartender. There is an indoor dining area with a pleasant setting and an outdoor patio. Do not miss this location.
Wendy Boyd   July 13, 2022
We entered and sat at the bar for lunch. The bartender was really personable and the experience was wonderful. The food was delicious as always. Really, you cannot eat a bad lunch here. I have frequented this location and will always return. Try the piccata chicken.
MysteryRobin   June 12, 2022
Got takeout here on vacation, but it looks beautiful. Friendly staff, great food, decent prices. Loved it, I bet dining in would be amazing. Takeout boxes were wicked cute.
Missy Falconer   June 8, 2022
They were extremely helpful and accommodating to the whole party. Took great care of our grieving family and did everything they could to make sure we were well taken care of
Annette Mahon   May 26, 2022
We went in for lunch and sat at the bar. It was a great experience and the bartender was so engaging. The food was wonderful as usual. You can’t get a bad meal here.. really! I have been here a number of times and will always go back. Try the chicken piccata.
Joan Meyer   April 27, 2022

I am surprised at the highs and lows of review stars. Some lower ratings seem to be food related, but most seem to be service related. I'm giving 5 stars...
Ravi Khandelwal   April 22, 2022
t was quite busy. I am glad we made the reservation over call. The complimentary bread they serve is super delicious. We ordered Bruschetta, four cheese pizza, pasta, virgin mojito and a draft beer. Prices are reasonable apart from virgin mojito. $9 for virgin mojito is expensive. Food was great. Service was quick. Staff was polite and quick to respond. Everything was so perfect about this place. Great experience. Highly recommended. Kudos to the team!

We stopped in after going to our granddaughter’s soccer game. The vibe is nice with pleasant music and delicious food. Jennifer took care of us and we instantly felt like old friends. This combo, welcoming vibes, yummy food, friendly and fun staff make for a good restaurant. I also love the risotto and Sicilian sangria! We’ll be back.

Good menu, good food. Service was slow. Seated at 6pm, did not take our drink order until 6:30.
Sissy OHara   March 9, 2022
Having Federal Hill with the best Italian food in the greater NE area, gotta say. The food was great. The calamari was cooked to perfection and the martinis were skilfully created.
Jacquelyn C.   February 21, 2022

Charlotte Nichols   January 11, 2022
Plenty of parking, great service, excellent food and specials, plenty of choices and since it's a scratch kitchen, they are happy to customize entrees when possible. Tasty, fresh, clean food at decent pricing. Check them out!
Schuyler Larrabee   December 11, 2021
Friendly , excellent fresh food, skillfully prepared. Special requirements cheerfully accommodated. Congenial atmosphere.
Laura Gimby   December 7, 2021
Terrific meal! And the place is definitely classier overall than I'd remembered.
Roland Ouellette   December 5, 2021
They do a decent job with allergies. Good simple dishes. Good bar.
Tom Hanlon   November 16, 2021
Enjoyable Italian, although the menu seems dramatically reduced with the pandemic. $111 for two, with one drink. We split the Caesar and the pistachio cake. Neither cheap nor expensive. We like it, and will be back!

Pretty darn good restaurant with a great room. Unquestionably best restaurant in Concord. .
nicole monteiro   September 21, 2021
My fiance took me on a romantic weekend away and this place was right across from our hotel so we figured we'd have dinner here. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was romantic. I recommend this place to anyone looking for delicious authentic Italian food in a great environment.
Joy Marshall   September 21, 2021
I had a photo shoot in Boston, and on the way back home (Greenfield area) we were desperately looking for food outside of the city. I have Celiac so choices can be limited. We ended up going to Papa Razzi and it was amazing! The service was quick but the food was so fresh and delicious. And I had zero dietary issues after! We also ordered a gluten free pizza to go for the next day, and it was honestly one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had! The ingredients were fresh and the sausage had a home made taste to it. I wish we lived closer! We will definitely be back!
Liz O.   September 19, 2021
Grilled chicken Caesar was lovely, Pinot Grigio was cold and the chicken piccata was salty and delish. We sat outside in what used to be their parking lot...

We had a private event in the back room. Excellent service, first of all, and very polite. The food was quite good as well. Could have slightly more adventurous apps, but overall I was very happy
chandler slaton   August 17, 2021
Great food! What they did have was delicious and the quality was top notch. My one complaint is that they were missing some staple Italian foods. Lasagna for example. The linguine and meatballs was delicious as well as the chicken scaloppini. The service was slow because there was a shortage of kitchen staff but the server was very good and apologetic about the wait.
Jan Martin   June 26, 2021
Great restaurant. The food was famous and the open kitchen is available for customers to view. We sat at the bar to eat abs enjoyed wonderful conversation with the bartender. Nice comfortable ambiance inside and patio dining available. Don't miss this place.

Sunessa “Sunny” Schettler   May 14, 2021
My entree was decent, but my dining partner's scallops over corn was amazing! The minestrone was very good, but the focaccia was on the stale side. I'd say this is a mostly hit but sometimes miss experience..

Phil Baton   May 3, 2021
There is an awesome surprise to this place when they bring the bread basket to the table. I don't want to ruin it for anyone so I wont tell you what it is. My only single complaint is that I ordered a medium rare burger and they brought me a well done burger. It was still good but not what I ordered. I would still highly recommend this restaurant to anyone asking if it's worth the prices
Barrett Menson   April 23, 2021
Wonderfull spot, great pasta dishes. Usually stop on our way back from appointments in Boston.
Susan Wessels   April 3, 2021
So few people inside on a Tuesday we had a corner booth far from anyone. Still the best salads. Meatballs and eggplant parm sides were excellent. First time inside a restaurant in a year. It was a treat! Could sit outside, too.

Sarah Topolski   October 5, 2020
Really nice place to eat. Food was delicious. I had the gnocchi and it was really good. The half chicken was potatoes that my friend got was amazing. And the wait staff were very good and attentive.

Amber Callahan   July 15, 2020
Everyone was very nice. Food was great. Only thing I marked a star off for is you don't get salad or sides with meal just a main course.
John Madden   June 18, 2020
They are still open during Covid for take out and it’s all arranged very well and in a safe manner. Always great food and service. At a time when local business needs to be supported more than ever I am happy to be a customer here
