Pappo's never disappoints. Another delicious meal with plenty of time to make it to the theatre.

We had a very nice meal at Pappo. We started with a shared caesar salad which was very good and fresh. I had house made pappardelle pasta with bolognese which was very good, but had a little too much tomato taste for me. My wife had native halibut which she really liked a lot. We each had a glass of wine from a well curated list. Both of us had an affogatto for desert which were prepared at the table with house made vanilla gelato which was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

The food was delicious and our server was friendly and efficient. The problem was how long it took to receive our food. We sat down for a 6:15 reservation and ordered a salad to share and wine. We did not receive the entree we planned to split until 7:20. It was a problem as we had to make an 8:00 show in Oakland so we had to ask for our entree to be packed to go. Our server apologized but no other concessions were made. The gnocchi was delicious but didn’t plan on eating it in the back of a cab.

Great dinner with my Wife here. Every portion of each disk was excellent, something I can't say about any recent dining experiences. The salt levels were assertive without going over the top (although it was close)

Pappo has never failed to impress, in the dozen years I've lived in Alameda. On this occasion I was looking for the perfect little romantic spot to celebrate two years with the bf (and also impress him with Alameda's unexpected cuisine, since he is a SF native). ;-) It did the trick! We accidentally booked during Alameda Restaurant Week and were convinced by the diner next to us to try the duck (I'm usually not a fan, re: fattiness). It was delicious, tender, NOT fatty, and the only duck I've ever liked. Yes to Pappo!

Ribeye was tasty but was cold and served on cold plate. They did accommodate menu entree item changes for low carb alternative. Expensive “WAGyu” burger with bone marrow” $17 then you charged additional for cheese and anything else - while it was tasty the burger came to $20 with the extras and you just feel ripped off.

This was our second time dining at Pappo’s. The duck was amazing.
