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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The outdoor space was very good. I was surprised by a couple of safety protocols that were not being followed at this time-the serving of bread and the original menus being handed out which were hopefully wiped down page by page between guests.
