Amazing food, live music and staff
It was A beautiful day in NYC and sitting outside was perfect. The food was delicious and the service was on point. Would recommend.
Because we are all dining outdoors, the noise level is really loud every time a truck goes by, but their outdoor dining accommodations are versatile and pleasant. As has always been the case when we have eaten at Pappardella, the chef is always willing to make requested changes from the standard menu when asked. The food is always good and the service as well, even in these very trying times. I hope that we will be back to normal soon making most of this review irrelevant.
There playpen is perfect for dining outside and so pretty with the trees and lights - snug and warm too!
This neighborhood institution won't be stopped by any pandemic! As always, the carpaccio is authentic Roman-style and first-rate.
Great food always - nice set up outside for covid
My husband and I are quietly snobby about Italian food, but Papardella has some of the best. We both had pasta dishes (the pasta was cooked just right) and enjoyed the featured wines. Juggling outdoor diners made the service a little slow, but our servers were attentive and responsive.
Food is really good. Service was spotty. Fortunately we were not in a hurry. We would return if time was not a concern. We sat outside during the pandemic. It is possible that they are still adjusting.
This is our favorite restaurant in the UWS. They are always so nice and the food is the best.
Our anniversary dinner was bound to be different in the pandemic, especially since one of us is still a little worried about eating indoors. But Papardella has a lovely outdoor set-up, and we love love love the food -- if you're gluten-free, you must try their pasta and garlic bread. It's a delight.
Good food and decent portions; subpar service. Recommend the cacio e pepe and the garlic bread. Don't get the sangria.
Excellent service & food. A local go to
I chose Pappardella for a birthday celebration, we all had a nice time and was happy to be able to sit outside before the weather get cold.
Great local Italian food-the meatball is a must and the pasta with sausage and the Bolognese were fabulous. Nice sidewalk seating area.
a very nice outdoor as well as indoor dining spot with an excellent menu plus daily specials and many good wine choices. the service always starts off well but then dissipates and needs sprucing up.
Celebrating a friends birthday
This has become a favorite: great location, outdoor seating, menu and warm professional service.
Early dinner out with friends. The food was great, service was great. There wasn't a long wait for anything. However there was a large group who were noisy, which made hearing ourselves a little difficult, but overall we had a good time and the restaurant was a good choice. I give them 4 stars.
highly recommend the pappardelle funghi e tartufo. you will not regret!
I had a wonderful lunch at Pappardella. They have lovely outdoor seating with protection between tables. I had the kale and beet salad to start, which was delicious. I then had the classic flatbread which was also great. I finished with the tiramisu, which was excellent. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. A great neighborhood dining choice.
This is during Corona seating and our first visit. Very pleasant overall!
Delish food as always, celebrating our 3 year anniversary at our favorite place!
Food was fantastic and the waite staff very attentive!
The food amazing and service impeccable! Will dine again at your restaurant, soon!
Terrible service. We had to wait over an hour to get our food after we had ordered and only got it after going repeatedly to the host to complain.
The server never came to the table even after being called at, not even to serve us water.
Would not recommend this place, we would never return.
Service was a little slower then usual but food somewhat compensated for that
Great food and great service.
Came here with my daughter to celebrate her 18th birthday. She flew in from the west coast and loves this restaurant. Unfortunately, we got a server who was apparently having a bad night. NEVER asked once if our meal was okay, if we needed more drinks etc. My Cosmopolitan was probably the worst I'd ever had, the next drink almost as bad. They need a new bartender. I sent the Cosmo back AND WAS STILL CHARGED FOR IT. The rest of the wait staff tried to get our food and drinks (because our server was clearly not interested in helping us) and made us feel like we were trash, despite dressing nicer than half the guests there. I won't be back.
Fresh food, great drinks, especially excellent pasta. Great girls night out birthday. Very covid
compliant. Would absolutely return.
MUST go here - all of the food was incredible and delicious! Big plus is they have an extensive gluten free menu if you have to accommodate a group with food allergies. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!
nice place-ate outside on a beautiful night. The Riviera salad with avocado was nice. Also had tasty bronzino and pasta with funghi. The flourless chocolate cake dessert was excellent. Very solid-nice.
MaitreD was fabulous, Alberto was so wonderful! Great food really delish! Thank you for a nice dinner.
Always good food and they have done a wonderful job with their outdoor set up
Friendly hostess and waitress. Nice seating on the sidewalk. Food was not great - dry chicken & the sauce not very tasty in the pasta special.
lovely evening for three 70 plus people. Food was excellent. Staff was terrific. Felt like we were in Italy. (sadly, the closest we can get now!)
This was our first dinner out during the pandemic.
We selected a table we felt comfortable with.
My sister had the fruits de mar and loved it.
I had the halibut special and enjoyed very much.
The white sangrias were wonderful!
For outdoor dining, Pappardella is a delight. The ambiance is festive and the food is excellent. This is the second time I have been here and ordered the branzino. It is delicious. Some of the best I have had (and I order it a lot).
The only drawback was the waitstaff. They were very pleasant but inattentive. It was difficult to get anyone's attention.
So thrilled this UWS institution is still here and thriving
Great food and wonderful attentive service.....
