Gluten Free Italian at Papa Razzi!

June 14, 2017

 

Last weekend, my boyfriend Kerrey (@k_rrey) and I treated ourselves to a meal at one of our favorite Boston restaurants, Papa Razzi. Papa Razzi is a small restaurant chain with a few locations sprinkled throughout Massachusetts, but we've only ever been to the Newbury Street location. 

 

Papa Razzi serves delicious Italian dishes and good wine, which makes it a great date spot. They also have a separate gluten free menu, which you can see here

 

Appetizers

This visit, we decided to be adventurous and try a new appetizer, Gamberi Spiedo. It turned out to be a nice, flavorful dish involving shrimp, tomatoes, and spinach. Because Italian food can be pretty heavy, it was nice to start the meal with something a little lighter (and eat a few veggies!).

 

Of course, we also had to order the Mozzarella Fritters appetizer, which is one of our favorites. They are basically gluten free mozzarella sticks, just serviced in a circular shape. I haven't found gluten free mozzarella sticks anywhere else, so these are a fun treat.

 

The Main Course

I almost always get one of the two gluten free ravioli dishes when I come here because Papa Razzi is the only restaurant I know of that serves gluten free ravioli. Both types are delicious, but I have a special soft spot for the Mushroom & Goat Cheese Ravioli. The first time I ordered it, I thought it seemed like the dish didn't come with a ton of food, but it didn't turn out to be a problem. The dish is very rich and I often have a hard time finishing it (especially after apps).

 

Kerrey decided to try something new and ordered the Penne alla Bolognese, which was also delicious (despite being a little less exciting than gluten free ravioli). He was also too full to finish.

 

Dessert?

Unfortunately, we were too full to get dessert! But they do have two gluten free desserts: Panna Cotta, a custard dish, and Gelato & Sorbetto. (My only complaint is that there's no creme brulee.) Maybe next time, Papa Razzi!

 

Overall, this is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston! It's a little out of my way, but I typically eat at Papa Razzi several times a year. Highly recommended if you're ever in the area!
