Paparazzi: Brunch like a Celebrity!

Last Sunday we were invited to brunch at Paparazzi Ristorante Italiano,  located in the heart of Lafayette Village in North Raleigh. Paparazzi, is dedicated to the idea that every guest should be treated like a star...mixed with a little old world Italian warmth and comfort. The restaurant features celebrity photos old and new, and while it reminds you of traditional Italy, the restaurant itself has a modern, contemporary style.

It's always great to discover a good place for Sunday brunch in North Raleigh. Lafayette Village is the perfect location for the restaurant with its European style and provides a great place to walk around, shop and relax after brunch.

Paparazzi's brunch is served Sundays from 11-2pm (the restaurant opens again later for dinner).  Brunch includes an assortment of chilled salads, artisan pizzas from the wood burning oven, made to order pasta station and omelet station,
carving station and an amazing dessert station!! 

The brunch price includes unlimited soda, coffee, iced tea and juices along with unlimited mimosas (starting at noon) which make for a great deal with your meal! They also offer Bloody Marys for $5.

We arrived around noon and most of the restaurant was full and the food looked delicious. We ordered up some freshly made omelets from the omelet station where you can pick what you would like to put in your omelet, all while cooked in front of you. Meanwhile, my girls without hesitation, helped themselves to the french toast with syrup and whipped cream! There is also a made to order pasta station where you can select your pasta and sauces.

After our meals, coffee and some fresh fruit,  the dessert bar was beckoning all of us. It looked amazing with many gorgeous bite size desserts to sample. Its nice to be able to try different traditional pastries and cakes in the smaller portions.

Forget the cold temps and escape to warmth and a feeling like you've left the country for a little taste of will enjoy it!
