One of my favorite restaurants
One of my favorite restaurants in the UWS. Food is very good - any of the pastas is a hit, my favorite being the Pappardella Buttera. The pizzas I tried for the first time this weekend, and they were amazing. The sausage, goat cheese, spinach was fantastic. Service is warm and attentive. Highly recommend.

Such an adorable place with
Such an adorable place with the exposed brick and the welcoming atmosphere. The staff are attentive, and what I've had was good, but I'd like to try other dishes since I wasn't overwhelmed. Two of us shared the kale salad, which was the best dish of the night and really something different but great. Then we waited an awfully long time after the salad for our two main entrees, especially for a Monday night, when it was busy, but not packed. The papardelle with wild mushrooms was flavorful, though by the end of the dish, the mushrooms were too mushy. The pizza was thin crust and flavorful, but too heavy on the cheese for such a thin crust. All over very cute cozy place with great atmosphere and service. Plan to come back and try more.

Pappardella, An UWS Gem
My 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!

We found Pappardella by accident
We 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.

Great Find--Great Food
This 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.

We went there because of the gluten free menu. The pasta baresi dish I had was very good in terms of taste, however, the sausages were "skimpy" - thin slices instead of more substantial pieces/amount I expected in a main course dish.The salad was very good - tricolore.The service could have been better -- the waitress was good but not as attentive as should be.

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!

Pappardella never disappoints
Pappardella never disappoints and always satisfies.
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,

Went 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 food was absolutely amazing, they really treated us well.

This restaurant has really gotten pricey over the years for a neighborhood Italian trattoria.

Namesake Pasta Dish
You can't go wrong if you order the pappardella. Consistently, the best I have ever had. Very pleasant, non-rushed service.

Excellent GF menu, my friend, who can eat gluten ate from the same menu and enjoyed everything!

This restaurant was very attentive for a special occasion we were celebrating. Their version of Mac and cheese was extremely tasty, rich and unique.

Delicious fresh pasta!
The food and service here were very good. The pasta is very fresh and although some of their sauces are a bit on the heavier side, they are delicious! The portions are quite large. I am defintely coming back for more!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great find... and Gluten Free!
This is a really adorable little Italian place. The gluten free crostini and garlic bread were a big treat for me!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
THERE WERE 5 OF US & EVERYONE WAS SATISFIED WITH THEIR ENTREE. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE ABOUT ITALIAN FOOD?
WAIT STAFF WAS ATTENTIVE.

My husband and I came to Pappardella to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This restaurant not only had amazing food, but absolutely fabulous service. This was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. Can't wait to go back!

Sat outside, the staff was
Sat outside, the staff was exceptionally pleasant. The food was good, pasta was good though the vodka sauce was a bit heavy for my taste. The chocolate cake was quite good. The wine carafe is a very good value.

HOT neighborhood eatery
The food was outstanding, and the gluten-free menu option AWESOME:) Only drawback, was that there was no AC and it was very warm. Would definitely go back.

Another great meal
After recently getting a Blackboard Eats code for Pappardella, my wife and I went and had a great meal. Having been once before with another couple, we knew that the food was good, but our pasta dishes (mine the sausage with pappardelle in vodka sauce and my wife's the gluten-free pasta with truffles) were truly amazing. The flourless chocolate cake was nice and rich; it and the house moscato were a perfect way to end a nice evening over Labor Day Weekend.

good italian, doesn't break the bank - the kale salad and the soup were excellent.

Dinner at Pappardella
This was my 2nd time at Pappardella and it was every bit as good as the first. It seemed to be a lot noisier this time, maybe because it was a Saturday night, or maybe because there were a lotof families with small children, but in either case, we had a great dinner and I would certainly go back again,
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was looking for something close to the Beacon theatre. Found this restaurant online, was happy I did, we really enjoyed our meal. I would definately go again. It seems like a neighborhood restaurant full of regulars (always a good sign).

Delightful sidewalk dining
My husband and I ate here for our anniversary, delighted to be able at eat outside. Waitstaff was attentive,, adequate and reasonably priced wine list. My husband's salmon was perfectly prepared; unfortunately my frutti de mare was less than hoped for with mussels that were off and I should have sent it back. Gelato was excellent.

A Long Time Favorite
Pappardella has been our go-to place for years. It's always buzzing, the food is good and nicely presented, and the staff stays pretty much the same, so we know some by name. It's like going to an old friend's, and we always look forward to an evening there.

Great Dining Near the Beacon
Pappardella does a great job with an energetic and clearly satisfied crowd. The tables are packed pretty close together. Great service, although our primi was served at the same time as our entree so we had to ask for it to be kept warm. Excellent branzino and wild striped bass. Terrific roasted brussel sprouts. Great spot for dining before shows at the Beacon.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Once again a good choice!
I have been to this restaurant before and really like it. It is a safe bet but also adds something new each time. Good food in cosy Upper West Side.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. Great salad choices, and the striped bass fish special was wonderful. Staff was attentive enough, but let us sit and talk for hours without being intrusive. It was a bit noisy for us, there was a very large very loud group right behind.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a lovely reunion lunch with close friends visiting from Paris. Broad choices from salads to classic Italian, close to Museums and park. Good, friendly service, lowered piped in music for us.
