Never have a bad experience or meal at Papazzio. We often go their for celebratory dinners or whenever. Dominick the owner is always so welcoming to us and always spends time at our table talking. The food is great, valet parking and the ambiance is nice. BTW, if you love Cosmopolitan martinis, the bar tender there makes the best!

Disappointing experience
Food was underwhelming. Ordered calamari basically it was fried tentacles clustered into one piece. Other than the sweet potato gnocchi—which was delicious ! —the pasta dishes were average. Also ordered risotto as side dish. Essentially it was flavorless boiled rice
Mixed drinks also were so-so
Would not recommend coming here . So many better Italian places nearby !

Love this place. Small place, free valet parking, friendly staff, excellent, tasty food. Have not had a bad meal there. Even the desserts are really, really good. Wish I lived closer, would go more often.

The staff is friendly & make great recommendations. The service is amazing & the food is excellent. Thumbs up for Papazzio. One suggestion, they should have a children's menu. All kids love pasta, but if children order pasta, they do not have a kids portion.

Thank you for having an establishment that is safe for those of us with celiac disease to be able to sit back and enjoy a delicious meal & beverages. It is hard to find a safe place for us without worrying if we will get sick or not. Thank you! More people should start safe places as well, there are not many of them out there.

Always great food and great service. The only thing was it was very hot outside, and the restaurant was unusually warm as well.

Enjoyed a Father's Day Dinner with my family at Pappazio. The food was very good except for the mashed potatoes and risotto which were very salty. The filet mignon was excellent. The service was excellent. The cost of the meal appeared pricey. This is somewhat understandable for gluten-free food, but $4.50 for a coke seems a bit high.

We had to meet people in Bayside and had no idea where to go. Struggled to find something on OpenTable and then this gem showed up. Food was wonderful. Service was terrific. We ended up chatting with the owner at the end of our evening. So good, might have to drive out from Manhattan for another great meal!!

My family of 4 came here from Tennessee; everything was fantastic. George was a great server and Dominic oversaw a great meal. We sang Happy Birthday to several groups and it felt like a family gathering. Best time!!

Have lived in the neighborhood for 30 years and have always passed by it but never stopped in for dinner. I feel like I've missed out on fantastic food my whole life. Lol. What caught my eye were the open table reviews and then the menu. So different, unique and delicious. Made my reservation and was not disappointed. The food was delicious and on point. I ordered the beet and goat cheese salad and it was large enough to feed 4. It was so delicious. The filet mignon with priusuitto was succulent and cooked to perfection and the fried penne pasta with seafood was out of this world. The waiter and staff were attentive and had great suggestions. The owner came to our table to see if everything was to our liking and and conversed with us when we were leaving for quite sometime. He was most gracious and you could see he loved what he was doing. We this be our new "go to" place. can't wait to try everything on the menu.

I ordered the pollo Papazzio. It was fabulous! The portion was so large, I had it for lunch and dinner the next day. My husband had a steak special with scallops and lobster sauce. He loved it, and loved the garlic mashed potatoes that came with it. We shared the New Zealand mussels as a appetizer. They were fresh and delicious. The waiter was personable and very efficient. All in all, we had a great experience.

Very nice restaurant. Was certified gluten free restaurant. They treated our celiac mother great. Cooking her gluten meal dinner just how she wanted it. Good choices for her as well both for dinner and dessert. The rat of our meals were also very good. Free valet service. Owner came over and talked with us. Loved it
