Went to Pappa Razzi's on Washington St. in Wellesley, Ma for dinner last night. It was an awesome experience for us. We do not eat out often and are very cautious. They had a double/triple check system between waiter, manager, and chef regarding my son's food. The manager and waiter were very informed, attentive, and helpful. My son was able to have a full meal including bread, salad, grilled chicken, and desert!

There are no peanuts or sesame in the kitchen. There are a few deserts that have tree nuts, but they are not prepared there. The waiter and manager told me all the ingredients of everything we were interested in getting and they made sure we knew which items were made there and which came from somewhere else to avoid any chance of cross contamination. The only things items from somewhere else where some deserts. But they made some deserts themselves that were peanut/nut free and one was egg free as well.

That sounds great! What desserts were you able to get that were safe? We would love to be able to order a dessert at a restaurant sometimes.

Be sure to ask lots of questions at Papa Razzi's. We went to the one in Concord, MA after reading good things about it here, and found that while they had a nice system for notifying the chef about food allergies, they weren't all that nut-allergy friendly: the breadsticks were cooked on baking sheets coated with peanut oil and the desserts were not safe for PA/TNA.
My son was able to safely eat the ravioli from the children's menu.

The one in Wellesley told me that they do not have any peanut or nut oils in the kitchen. They use olive and canola. The deserts that they made there and were safe were an eggless caramel custard and tiramasu.
Thanks for the heads up about the one in Concord.

Has any one had any experiences with the Pappa Razzi in Cranston, RI ... are they food allergy aware?
