    On my first visit: impressive menu variety to choose from, particularly the "specials", which included wine. Service was excellent; we arrived early on our reservation, but were seated as soon as they downsized a table for us.

    A beautiful, quaint and quality place. One of the last authentic small business owned Italian restaurants left on the UWS. Every moment in there is worth every penny. The food is fresh and quality Italian. It is the only thing that ever reminds me of my Sicilian grandfathers cooking. The service is wonderful and the staff is extremely personable and attentive. Every time I go to NYC I make the effort to come here.

    We chose Pappardella because of the much appreciated separate gluten-free menu it offers as well as the location. The food overall was good, not great. There are many places in Manhattan that serve better tasting Italian food. The service unfortunately lived up to the many reviews I'd read. It was sorely lacking. Even though we weren't in a hurry, the slow service and lack of attention was strongly felt by all in our party. The manager was lovely but perhaps not effectively managing the staff and flow. Whatever the reason for the poor service, it's clearly an issue that needs to be fixed.

    It was a pleasure to be back at Pappardella for the first time since the pandemic began. The food was excellent with a great gluten free menu just like they always had (including their yummy GF garlic bread.) The service was also excellent: gracious, knowledgeable, helpful and even mask-wearing. Try the pasta with mushroom ragu (regular or GF); it was delicious.

    Reservation timing was perfect to make a nearby show at the Beacon. The location is a nice size, and ambiance relaxing. Our server was not pleasant at all and a big part of why this restaurant lost a review-star. Food was very good (we had the asparagus appetizer, ink squid special and rigatoni bolognese) except their rigatoni bolognese was lacking in the bolognese department and needs to be addressed, seriously. All in all a good neighborhood restaurant.

    It felt a little chaotic. Table covering not clean. Once our meal was served our waiter never returned and we needed to chase him down in order to get to a show on time. And we left a ton of time. The menus were so beat up they looked odd or burnt. The food was actually good. But I wouldn't go back.

    Pappardelle con funghi e tartufo were heavy, not very flavorful. The mushrooms were cut too large and were chewy. I ordered it because it is the restaurant’s signature dish and was recommended by the server. I will not order again (if I return at all).

    Normally the restaurant overall does a very good job. Last night it was very crowded and the service was poor and it showed when they brought out both courses at the same time. Fortunately the manager realized how bad things were and bought our drinks and offered to buy us dessert.

    Always a stop when I’m home in NYC. Not a good visit, at all. The new host is rude and surly. Outdoor tables are crooked and unkempt. Servers are over stretched and non attentive. Giant meatball is always good. My pasta arrived cold and slopped into a bowl that no one bothered to wipe. My friends’ orders arrived with same complete lack of care. Even the water for my tea was cold. There are 100 Italian restaurants on the UWS. This has been my go to but no more.

    I was brought the wrong food. No one checked on us. Everyone else said their dish was fine enough. We had all different servers, so I’m not even sure who ours was. The food was fine enough. The hostess had an attitude with the children trick or treating that was very awkward. They marked me as a no show as well, possibly because we paid in cash (and still tipped well, but I arrived before my res time and said my name clearly to the host. We chose this place due to proximity and an allergy, but we would certainly not go out of our way to go back.

    We were a large group, and they accommodated us with ease. Service was a bit slow, no more beer on draft, but those are my only slight complaints. Food was excellent, especially the home made pastas and pizzas. They even have a gluten-free menu which came in handy as one in our group had to take advantage of it. Reasonably priced (prices posted on their website are inaccurate and lower than in printed menus), and the atmosphere was chill and quiet. We'll return.
