Where Every Guest is Treated Like a Star!
Paparazzi Ristorante Italiano, located at Lafayette Village, is dedicated to the idea that every guest should be treated like a star. The restaurant reflects the family’s philosophy of blending the classical and neo-classical elements of everyday Italian life.
The menu, architecture, and ambiance of the restaurant were created with this respect for the traditional, while infused with the contemporary. The interior space is reminiscent of Old World Italy with domed ceilings and comfortable wooden floors, while the new age bar offers the modern convenience of HD TV and a sophisticated sound system. The Private Dining Room may be customized to accommodate any special event, which offers complete audio-visual autonomy for any type of party or business presentation. The room is available for private events everyday for lunch and weekday nights. We do not book private parties on weekend nights, although large parties are welcome. Outdoor courtyard dining is also available.
The menu adheres to these same principles. It offers classical Italian dishes that have become part of the American tapestry, while introducing its fair share of the interpretive, creative, and innovative. The regional recipes are authentic and passed down from generation to generation. They are marked by freshness and seasonality. The wood-fired oven, visible from every seat in the dining room, imparts a special flavor and aroma to the Artisan Pizza as well as other specially prepared dishes. Imaginative desserts put an exclamation point on the dining experience.
The Wine List is designed to take the stress out of the selection process. While it is descriptive and friendly, the knowledgeable staff is eager to assist. Specialty martinis, customized cocktails, top-shelf spirits, and craft beers are also available from our unique drinks menu.
Paparazzi offers lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. Takeout orders may be picked up using our specially designated parking space at the west entrance. Parking is also available adjacent to the restaurant and the parking deck.
