Went to Pappardella for my wife's 60th birthday. It was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. The food was outstanding; the service was great. It had a small neighborhood feel which added to the experience for us.

Food was very good. Lemon sorbet for dessert was Rome worthy. Only drawback was our waitress didn’t mention the specials. We overheard them from a nearby table after we had ordered. Otherwise, nice ambiance.

Solid spot for a good meal. We went pre-theater and were greeted by a warm hostess. Waitstaff very attentive. Eggplant parmigiana and shrimp Parm were both good. Zabaglione dessert also enjoyable.

For a NYC restaurant, this restaurant provides excellent food at great value. Both my wife and I had (two different) excellent veal dishes. Their Prosecco was exceptional and according to the waiter was the basis for the original Bellini in Venice.
We definitely will return

Pappardella provides excellent table service, taking away plates in a timely manner and cleaning the table of crumbs. Waitstaff is attentive and friendly. This matters as much to me as the quality of the meal. The food proportions are perfect, appropriate to a single person as opposed to family style. The orrecchietti with sausage and broccoli rabe was fantastic.

Pappardella is an attractive neighborhood restaurant with a nice selection of Italian standards. The servers are attentive, the noise level low. On my last visit, I was accompanied by my adult son, who uses a wheelchair. The restaurant staff was most accommodating, and made the meal the special occasion that I had hoped for.

So this was the 5th visit to Pappardella and its still on it's mark. Sunday brunch, great food, exceptional service..the type of place that one wished was in your own neighborhood. Looking forward to my next visit..the spaghetti and meatballs served at the next table were all too tempting!

I woudn’t recommend it . The tables are close together. The service is fair, but not gracious. The food is ordinary and it was noisy. We were in a little corner which was probably the quietest spot, but still..... I did eat out on the terrace over the summer and it was charming. Inside not so much.

Lovely casual neighborhood Italian restaurant with a upbeat ambiance and very good food. The salad with endives was excellent fresh and well laced vinaigrette, the thin crusted vegetable pizza very good and the salmon on kale very tasty. Overall the place has a wonderful feel. Good vibes making for a happy dining experience.

The mozzarella was to die for (rich/creamy) Attentive service in a friendly atmosphere. Try the chianti classico (smooth/dry). Pasta tasted homemade/fresh. Our fist time but not the last.

I ordered the carbonara, it wasn't as flavorful as I remember from the last time. A little disappointed so I added grated cheese. Will order something else next time.

Excellent authentic Italian food in a quiet laid back atmosphere for adults. Food was great from appetizer to desert. Even the bread with outstanding olive oil was terrific. Friendly prompt service but not at all rushed. Even the background music, classic standards, was just the right volume and genre for adults that don't want the thump, thump of today's excuse for music.

Lovely, large space, friendly service, excellent food; ample portions. You can come here and actually engage in a conversation with your dining companion. It is clearly a neighborhood place and doesn't aspire to be anything else. That is a positive in one sense, but the negative side of the coin is that means family and kid friendly. I was there for a 7:00 reservation on a Thursday night and there were some rambunctious children with proud UWS parents who would, one presumes, not countenance a word of criticism about their children's behavior. I would still recommend Pappardella and advise one to hope for the best.

PAPPARDELLA has been an UWS gem for as far back as I can remember. Longevity is rare in the restaurant business and almost unheard off on Columbus Avenue. The reason--great food with innovative touches that keeps customers coming back. From the pizza to the incredible pastas--love the funghi past dish to chicken parm, always delicious. The wait staff is extraordinary too. With a warm and cozy atmosphere, you can't go wrong.
