Second time there. The first time a year ago it was great. This time, maybe it was just the parppadella with sausage dish they make. Extremely skimpy on the sausage in the dish. This eliminated the contrast in flavors in the dish and made it very boring and bland. We were there with a French trained chef who ordered the same dish and had the exact same reaction. My wife had the salmon which she thought was outstanding. BTW my not reccomending this restaurant for my dish only. I can’t comment on other menus items.

Plese note that I typically do not write reviews but in this case I felt it necessary. My wife and I brought my daughter for her birthday to Parpadella because of the gluten free options and it’s location in the city. The food was delicious and the ambiance was excellent however I respectfully say that the waiter was abysmal. He greeted us, took our drink order and was never to be heard from again other then to briefly say our entrees were on their way out (45 minutes after being seated) we sat down for an hour an twenty minutes and spoke to our waiter for approximately two minutes if that time. We were never offered a second round of drinks or offered a dessert menu.

Th food was awesome but will never return to Parpadella again

Very metropolitan vibe, energetic atmosphere, reaching the LOUD level upon our exit, around 7 p.m. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. Food very authentic Italian, beautifully presented. Decent portion size and tho I am from CT and not very familiar with the Manhattan restaurant scene, prices seemed about what I would expect in Manhattan and on par with many restaurants where I live.

I really liked the gluten free options. The gf focaccia was delicious especially when you add grated Parmesan. Salads were large and fresh. A few of us had the brunch options (avocado toast and yogurt parfait) and really enjoyed them. A nice spot near the Museum of Natural History and the NY Historical Society.

I took my voice teacher here for her birthday as it used to be one of her favorite restaurants. This is the second time they were overbooked and we had to wait in spite of our reservation. The first time was Mother's Day. The food was good, but unfortunately, we waited for 50 minutes for our dinner and received bread about 40 minutes after we arrived. I rarely write negative reviews, but probably won't return because of the service issue. This was not our waiter's fault, but the kitchen's...Many people were served before us who sat down after us. While they were apologetic, it didn't sit well with either of us. So sorry.

Chose this on a whim and was not disappointed. Being of Italian descent, I generally don’t go to Italian restaurants because the food doesn’t measure up to my expectations. A friend loves Italian food so I took a chance. The food was delicious and fresh.

Been here once before for lunch and it was pretty good. This time, for dinner, it was mediocre, bland and uninspired. The Caesar Salad was among the worst I've ever had. I decided to go simple and chose Veal Parmigiana; bad choice. The veal was tasteless as was the sauce on the spaghetti. Finally, the meal was overpriced compared with better Italian restaurants in the neighborhood.

While the food is delicious, and the service great, the dining room was sweltering and so loud it was difficult to hear my friend speak. I’m also Disabled, and the front door doesn’t accommodate a wheelchair. My friend had to go inside and ask if they could please unlock the double door so I could enter, then several people had to get up from their tables to make room for me to pass so that I could reach my table. It was embarrassing. I’ll definitely go back, as it’s in a great neighborhood, and again, the food was great, I’ll just make sure to tell them to keep my chair in mind when reserving my table. They do, however, need to invest in a reliable air conditioning system. It was uncomfortably hot, so much so that I had to blot my face with a tissue throughout my meal.
(To be fair, the dining room was packed wall to wall, which would also explain the noise level. Perhaps they are seating too many people?)
Overall, I would recommend the restaurant.

We’ve been dining on the upper west side for 25 years but somehow only ate here for the first time the other night. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very, very good, particularly the salmon, and service was nice. It had a very cozy, neighborhood feel.

I always like to eat at Pappardella, but the noise level sometimes ruins the occasion. Why on earth do noisy restaurants play music on top of all the noise? It was not crowded when I was there but the service was slow and rather careless. We had to ask for water and ask for bread.
