Food was absolutely delicious! We picked it to have dinner prior to a concert at The Beacon. Fruit Del Mar has us sopping up every last drop of the delicious sauce and the Pollo Milanese did not disappoint. Arrive wonderful! 10/10 would recommend.
Another great dinner at Papparadella! The perfect spot before going to see Steely Dan at the Beacon! The mushroom pasta is delicious! The place has a good energy.
We were looking for a restaurant near the Beacon Theatre a few years ago and stumbled upon Pappardella. Went back last night, still a great place! Shared an appetizer of eggplant parmigiana that delicious. The pasta special was squid ink pasta with grilled calamari and fresh tomatoes. Loved it. Husband had Pappardella with sweet and spicy sausage in vodka sauce-what a great combo! Excellent service, good wine and all reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again!
Great gluten free offerings. My daughter was so excited when we found this restaurant a couple of years ago and we make a point of visiting every time we are in NYC.
Pretty Italian restaurant right next to the AMNH. Friendly and accommodating service and scenic atmosphere.
Food was delicious and exactly as described, but the service was horrible. We had three people taking care of us, but somehow no one checked on us until we were almost finished with our food. My dad ordered coffee before our food and we had to ask a second person to bring it because our waitress forgot. Then later, my husband asked for ketchup and our waitress forgot again so his potatoes were cold by the time we were able to ask another person. There was plenty of staff around, just no one actually checking in on us.
We enjoyed our dinners. We meet these friends several times a year and decided this was a good place to meet and we would do it again next time.
We love Pappardella for its outside dining. Food always very good , service excellent and friendly. It’s one of our go to restaurants
The food was great but the service was poor. The waitress was never available.
Food was fair but not good enough to be a 'destination' restaurant. A good, local neighborhood restaurant. Service was pleasant and attentive enough.
Fantastic food and a great place to catch up with friends. Little external or internal noise makes it easy to actually converse. No music allows you to focus on your company. Just wonderful! Service was a bit inconsistent, but fine.
Unbelievable gluten free menu! GF breaded chicken parmigiana! Wow!
Our second time here
I saw two cockroaches on the floor in the middle of the restaurant and one crawling down the wall. The food was just okay. The service was very slow.
Fresh pasta was so delicious! Service was fine and it was loud, but I would definitely return to this neighborhood gem!
The food was very good. However, the service was seriously lacking. We asked the server about the size of the caesar salads and she showed us with her hands that it was pretty small so we ordered two of them as well as two pasta entrees. After waiting, our entrees were brought out but not our salads. The runner who brought the entrees went and got our server and she told us we never ordered any salads. After I reminded her of what we had said, she said she now remembered. The runner offered to take our pastas plates back and "keep them heated" if we wanted the salads. Sorry, but no, I do not want reheated pasta. The server never offered to make things right, just ignored the issue. We never saw her again until we flagged her down for the check. This could have been easily resolved by the servers. The pasta however as very good which is why I upgraded my review.
Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, and amazing service! This place has it all and then some. I absolutely recommend for anyone from the area or touring!
Outstanding meal and service
So appreciate the gluten free menu. Food was delicious. Wine was wonderful. Cost was $$$.
The food was just OK, nothing special. Service was uninspired. No anticipation of needs or any discussion of menu items
Not really. I ordered branzino (fish) and the waiter did not fore worn me that there would be bones. I was not happy. They only offered me a dessert which I declined because we do not eat dessert. My wife's meal was good, my mine fair.
Nice neighborhood Italian.
This is a perfect, classic neighborhood Italian restaurant in feel and taste. Had to have the garlic bread just to taste the wonderful marinara dipping sauce. The heirloom tomato and burrata special was beautiful in presentation and delicious. The homemade gnocchi with pesto was melt-in -your-mouth perfect. All the sauces were complex without being heavy or overbearing. Good wine list without going off the rails. The staff were friendly and attentive, considering how bustling and busy the place was. We felt welcomed with no one hustling us out the door before we were ready to go. If we lived here, it would be a weekly habit!
I have Celiac Disease. Papparedella offered an extensive, dedicated gluten free menu - fantastic!
always consistent in terms of food and drink while the service is usually just fair as it was this time as well. and it if often hard to talk because of the noise level. perhaps if the windows had been closed we would not at least have had the street noise.
Very good food.....good service.....Noise level was LOUD!!! I would recommend it for lunch, not for a noisy dinner.
This is my go to dinner spot whenever I have Beacon Theatre tickets. Consistently top notch. Checks all the boxes. This past Saturday I had the pleasure of turning on 5 newbie extended family members. Great dinner, friendly efficient service. We will all be back.
Service a little inattentive. Spaghetti overcooked.
Very delicious food, both my husband and totally enjoyed our appetizer and entree. The service was awesome we very much enjoyed the whole experience.
My first time here. Good food. Pkeasant service, though slow. A nice unhurried dinner with inly medium noise.
Last minute Friday night get together with close friends. We were warmly greeted by the managing host. Seated immediately at the only available table. Food and service was perfect. We were able to enjoy our conversations and appreciated that we weren’t rushed in any way. Looking forward to going back to this UWS icon.
Food, drinks and service always on point. Be back soon
great food as always but service was somewhat lacking...
Such a gracious welcome! My guest was late and I was seated with an understanding smile. Staff continued to be attentive when I changed my seat (the waitress recommended an even better one) and these grateful diners also accepted her menu recommendation. The pasta and pizza were both outstanding (as well as the latte). Wish we’d had time for dessert!
Always a welcome from the staff. Food consistently good.
I tried this restaurant again after a disappointing meal a few days before. I was glad I came back. Pappardelle is wonderful if you’re gluten free like me. I had salmon as a main course and it was
quite good. The other three people in my party were pleased with their meals as well.
It was a busy Friday night, however, and it was very noisy!
Both the service and food here was excellent! My wife and I went there with no knowledge of the restaurant after a day at the Natural History Museum. When we arrived we were seated quickly, the waiter introduced himself and interacted with us through out the entire evening. He recommended an excellent Italian Tuscan red and walked us through the specials. Both the appetizers and meals were delicious and we never felt rushed by any of the staff.
I highly recommend restaurant if your by the NHM!
I usually enjoy this restaurant. I felt the staff was not attentive and hard to find. We had a couple of the daily specials and they were just OK. Sorry to say..... it was a disappointing visit.
always consistent in food and drink and the service is usually a bit less than that but this time we had a fairly good waitress and support staff. love the eggplant parmigiana.
Disappointed. I’ve eaten here before and been pleased by gluten free options. This time the gluten free toast was undercooked, the gluten free pasta was hard, and there weren’t enough mushrooms or olive oil in the dish.
Will try again; perhaps you had an off night.
