The bruschetta was very good but the small plates of roasted peppers , asparagus and olives should have had less olives and more peppers . My husband didn’t like the way the salmon was prepared and my chicken parm came to the table slightly warm. Service was fine but with so many choices for Italian food in the neighborhood , this wouldn’t be my choice .

I really like this restaurant so my only real complaint it is that it is TOO LOUD when full. But
at least they don't add to the din by playing "background music."

Food was good but getting a little pricy Very happy about the gluten free menu. Waitress forgot the gf bread with the meal. A little disconcerting to watch people scream and jump when the very large spider appeared.

The food is always outstanding. The noise level can at times be a little loud, especially when the restaurant is full. We Americans need to speak more softly in general. The waiter was excellent, the bus boys needed some mild prompting at times, but not too bad. All in all, it is always quite a pleasant experience to dine here and we will continue to come here.

Great food, Good ambiance, Reasonable price ,Sangria was good but warm (ask for ice) , Service was slow, if you didn't ask you didn't get. Even when we asked three times for a candle on my wife's dessert it didn't come. At which time I vented and they comped our desserts which was very nice of them. Great main course everything else so so you decide.

We discovered Papardella by happy accident when we were looking for a place to have lunch after a doctor visit. Although we live in New Jersey, we cross the river into Manhattan often, and whenever possible the trip includes a meal at Papardella. Sometimes we make the trip just to eat! The atmosphere, staff, and unbelievable menu keep us coming back. With so many possibilities in NYC, we are always drawn back to this favorite. From cocktails and appetizers to entrees and my ABSOLUTE FAVE dessert -- zabaglione -- it never disappoints. This place is divine. Wish it were closer!

I booked on Open Table, and the hostess was ready for our reservation. We got a nice table in the corner. All of our food was very good and the prices were very reasonable for a pre-concert dinner. Service was efficient, I can't say overly friendly or informative, but no issues and perhaps most of the patrons are returning customers who just want to come in and not be "schmoozed". My husband said his Bloody Mary was very good! Also one thing to note that was pleasing, our table was for 3 and the third party was not there at the seating, nor when we ordered, and there was no problem with that. Some establishments have an issue with that, but it was very smooth and easy when he arrived and ordered late. All in all, a positive dining experience, and we would return when in the area again.

This is a great place for some really excellent food. It was very crowded when I was there and the noise level was almost unbearable - the waiter had to yell at us while we were ordering. I love the tin ceiling but I wonder if some kind of soundproofing would help this problem.

Pappardella is my favorite Upper West Side restaurant. It is consistently good food, freshly prepared and they are always willing to make adjustments for food allergies and dietary restrictions. The staff are friendly and immediately make you feel welcome. The ambiance is nice with the brick wall, exposed wine racks and copper accents. It's a great place to dine.

I had attended the Sunday Brunch for my Birthday on July 1, 2018. It was for a party of four. The food was great, however I didn't really enjoy my drink , I had the Peach bellini. For my meal I had the scrambled egg panini toasted baguette,maple bacon, fontina, avocado, field greens. It was delicious and very fulfilling.

We went for the gf options, especially the garlic bread but everything was disappointing.

Sauce was bland, bread was depressing, and it took over an hour to get our food because either our waiter forgot to put in our order or it got lost somewhere. It wasn't until another waiter came over to the table that we were finally served and everything came out within 15 minutes.

This meal definitely wasn't worth the $82 we were charged.

Arrived on the early side so the restaurant was fairly quiet. The bread and olive oil was very tasty. A broad menu and we went with the bronzini and pasta with mushroom & truffles and wine. Lovely dinner and good service.
