Food was not completely gluten free as a member in our group got sick that night. Very overpriced.

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.

From the moment I walked into this restaurant I knew it would be a good experience. I was meeting friends that were running late; the hostess took note of it and assured me it would not be a problem. As I sat at the bar waiting for my friends to arrive, the bartender was attentive and so nice, striking up a conversation and making me feel at home. There was a band playing music, but it was subtle and enjoyable while talking to my friends. The server was funny and attentive and did not rush us. The food was delicious and the portions were quite generous. The owner spoke to us and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our meal. Also a huge plus, this restaurant has valet parking which really is needed when dining on Bell Blvd. Although I live in NJ, I will definitely be back!

Phenomenal, from the first step of entering the atmosphere is enticing to stay. The meet and greet from the Bartender to the hostess makes you feel like VIP even if it's your 1st or 10th time, the owners leadership of consistency is reflected in all the staff. The food choices and presentation by the Chef, not a cook is so amazing...that if you happen to bring guest you might just be tempted to ask to sample theirs if they offer. Just can't say enough about this place so I end with PERFECTO!

Was looking for a place to meet friends from Westchester. We live on Long Island. Decided on Bayside. I found this restarant in Openness arable and decodednto give it a try. Started at the bar while waiting for friends and the bar tender was one of the most pleasant attentive bar tenders we have ever had. Immediately started our night off pleasant. Dinner was great and the service was top notch. Had a small bluesy jazz band playing which was great and had the pleasure of meeting the owner who was telling us about the history of the restarant and making sure every thing was to our liking. Very impressed with this great find. Highly recommend!!

My wife and I are both gluten-free and this is an exceptional Italian restaurant if you have celiac. The Manager told us his daughter also has celiac so that explains why there's are so many gluten-free options on the menu which is unusual in an Italian place. Our food was very good and the service was excellent. Also, they have valet parking which is free. A little pricy but worth it.

Papazzio’s is a great Italian restaurant for a romantic dinner or an everyday lunch. Papazzio’s is a family owned establishment and the food is always delicious. I had my daughter’s bridal shower here and it was outstanding. The service is always on point. Thank you Dominick and your wonderful staff! Regards from Jimmy & Nancy!

Visiting home (NYC area) and stopped in for dinner at a longtime favorite Queens Italian restaurant. Baked clams, sausage & broccoli rabe over pasta, and wine were fantastic as always. Good to be home for a weekend and a great dinner at Papazzio made it that much better.
