I have been living a gluten free life since 2009 and I've been living in Boston for almost two years. I love to cook, bake try new foods and dine out. I love also like to write about it, so I've decided to share my stories here. This blog is all about cooking and eating gluten free in Boston and at home. I hope you enjoy it!
Papa Razzi has gluten free bread, pizza and pasta! Almost all salads,
pastas (minus the raviolis) and pizzas can be made gluten free, as well as many
of their entrees. They are great about making anything you want gluten free.
Everything is made fresh and to order so substitutions and alternations are so
We shared a Cesar salad to start, asking for the croutons on
the side. Instead, she put the salad on two separate plates for us, mine
without croutons, Jeremy’s with extra croutons, it was great! And I used my bread
The bread looked like a muffin top or English muffin, which
we all thought to be a bit odd, but it did taste good!
Jeremy ordered the Risotto Special (Gluten Free of course,
as is all risotto) with fresh parsley and mushrooms and topped with slices of
beef tenderloin. The beef was delicious; it melted in our mouths! The beef was
my favorite part of the whole meal, and it wasn’t even mine! The Risotto, one
of Jeremy’s favorite things, was better than the one I had at The Cottage two
weeks ago, but a little saltier. I hate salt.
I had the Cavatappi Affumicati with gluten free penne
instead of the hollow pasta spirals. It was served with roasted eggplant, roma
tomatoes, smoked mozzarella, romano and fresh basil. The fresh basil gave the
dish such great flavor. The smokiness of the mozzarella could be tasted
throughout the dish, a little too much for me, but Jeremy loved it. The pasta was
great, cooked to perfection and tasted good. The eggplant pieces were smaller
than I hoped and fewer than I hoped as well. There was a generous amount of
tomatoes (my favorite) and pasta, but not a huge portion
I have also eaten at the Papa Razzi on Newbury St. The Boston
location does not have gluten free bread, only pizza and pasta. We ate here for
Mother’s Day and it was delicious. I ordered the Tuscan Eggs Benedict without
the Grilled Crostini. Two poached eggs with pancetta, tomatoes and Parmesan cheese
served with extra roasted potatoes. The potatoes were awesome! We were also
given complimentary Mimosas, which they do every weekend for Brunch! Many of the brunch items can be made gluten free, I know the Chicken Hash, Oak-Fried Fruit Pizza (gf crust) and Frittata are all gluten free. I like this location better, only because we were able to sit outside. Why they do not have gluten free bread is beyond me, and such a shame!
