Papa Razzi - Wellesley

Papa Razzi Trattoria Wellesley is an Italian dining restaurant that offers Tuscan specialties, regional Italian wines, and vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. We believe in scratch cooking, fresh ingredients, and passionate chefs. Our team looks forward to serving you in a relaxed, family-friendly environment. We welcome you for brunch, lunch, dinner, or your next private event.

LOCATION: Papa Razzi Wellesley is conveniently located on Washington Street near River Street in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Originally named “Contentment,” this town was first settled over 350 years ago around the Charles River. Papa Razzi Wellesley is a popular option for students and visiting families at Wellesley College, Babson College, and Olin College; Wellesley is known for hosting one of the best school systems in the state. Newton-Wellesley Hospital and Newton Lower Falls Park are also nearby.
MENU STYLE: Papa Razzi dining combines the best of traditional Italian recipes with fresh, local ingredients. Our panzanella is made from house-baked focaccia, vine-ripened tomatoes, and Vermont goat cheese; our thin-crust margherita pizza is wood-fired with crushed tomatoes, fresh basil, and creamy mozzarella. Each of our signature pasta dishes is prepared with made-to-order sauces, customized to your request. We bake all bread hourly from scratch and our desserts are house-made. We offer all the comforts of home cooking in a relaxed, inviting atmosphere.
Of course, if you’d prefer to enjoy our cooking in the luxury of your own home, we are happy to prepare any dishes featured on our regular menus for take-out. 
WINE: In Italy, no meal is complete without its beloved complement – wine. We thoughtfully prepare our wine lists to accompany our menus and enhance our guests’ experience. Selections include imports from each of the major Italian wineproducing regions and even a few California varietals. We build variety and value into our offerings, allowing both novices and connoisseurs the opportunity to experiment with their selections.
