Namesake Pasta DishYou can't go wrong if you order the pappardella. Consistently, the best I have ever had. Very pleasant, non-rushed service.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne complaintThis restaurant has really gotten pricey over the years for a neighborhood Italian trattoria.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for brunch on SaturdayWent here for brunch on Saturday 5/4/13 at 1:30. I can say they had a warm, friendly staff who were kind and patient.

The service and food are excellent. It is festive, but it is never noisy.
What we like best is that there is no attempt at Pappardella to be anything other than what it is--
a neighborhood place that consistently serves delicious food.
This is a wonderful spot for dinner with friends or a romantic dinner,4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding,The food was outstanding, there were four of us and we tried a variety of different things. We were with friends who are very Italian, and very critical of "other people's" Italian food...they were impressed and said so several times. A misunderstanding by the waiter about what my wife had ordered was corrected quickly and satisfactorily. When we ordered desert (also excellent) and coffee, we told the wait staff that we needed to be out of there in 15 minutes to make a show, and we were. Can't wait to go back!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find--Great FoodThis is a great, little restaurant in the heart of the UWS. Has nice ambiance with exposed brick wall and very attentive service. Menu has something for everyone but leans toward pasta and classic Italian dishes. I had a leg of lamb which was perfectly prepared with a terrific mint jelly while my husband had a pasta dish which he thought was delicious. There was a family with 5 children next to our table and the waitstaff was very accommodating to this family who did not bother us one bit. We will definitely return to this neighborhood gem.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA dependable restaurantThis place has been around for years and is always good - I love the Branzino.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found Pappardella by accidentWe found Pappardella by accident several years ago. It was the best accident we've ever had. Never a bad meal. We'll keep coming back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was solid and wellThe food was solid and well presented. Prices are good for the quality.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPappardella, An UWS GemMy wife and I have been fans of Pappardella for many years. This neighborhood italian eatery is a gem. The food is consistently excellent, as is the service. The ambiance is wonderful, too. The decor is contemporary, with just a touch of Tuscany. To me, Pappardella is NYC's closest thing to a cafe at St Mark's square. Try it just once, and you are bound to fall in love with Pappardella. My favorite? Fresh whole Branzino, with a nice crisp Italian white. Salute!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMUWS Italian foodTerrific neighborhood Italian restaurant. Will go back. Everyone enjoyed their food and the service was excellent.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was very pleasantOur waiter was very pleasant but not so on the ball. He forgot our water until our salads came, then forgot to get my pasta dish order with the rest of it and it was a long wait for me to eat more than shared sides. The food, though, as always, was great. The dining room consistently has a good low-moderate buzz that is perfect for good conversation. We were seated by the window - me right against it, and despite being a very cold night, it was not cold and that was a real surprise.2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was very good -Everything was very good - we received a warm welcome on arrival, table was immediately available, food was excellent as was the service.1/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
