    We chose Pappardella due to its location, as we were attending a concert at the Beqcon, and we were extremely impressed. The food was absolutely delicious and the service top notch. The restaurant is newly renovated and presents itself beautifully. It has a local/family vibe to it which adds to its charm. Overall great experience and would recommend!

    The food was delicious and the service was attentive, and did what they needed to so we could make our show. I wish we could have lingered a bit longer as the ambience is very pleasant. Next time we’ll make an earlier reservation. Would definitely recommend for anytime dining or special occasion.

    I initially chose Pappardella for it's close proximity to the Beacon Theater and it's impressive gluten free menu for myself, but everyone in our party of six raved about their choices. Apps, entrees, desserts, and drinks were all excellent. We will definitely look forward to return visits.

    We had a great time at this restaurant. They asked if we were going to a show and the service was quick. The drinks weren't the best, but the waiter explained that the bartender called out and they were winging it. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this restaurant and we look forward to returning.

    This is the quintessential restaurant to visit while in New York. The cocktails are reminiscent of an era gone by and pay homage to some of the most beautiful leading ladies of the past. Have the Gina Lollobrigia! And the beef carpaccio along with the chicken parmigiana and tiramisu. The service is outstanding. The restaurant in itself beautiful.

    The server was outstanding; allowing us to order appetizers in advance of selecting our main course. The maitre ‘d was awesome, greeting us by name and ensuring that we were comfortable at our seats. He quickly realized that one of our group was pregnant and offered her a non alcoholic cocktail. We were serves a special birthday dessert to acknowledge the special occasion that brought us out to dinner. The food was sublime, artfully prepared and simply delicious! All in all, a perfect evening out!

    We dined for my husband’s birthday. Everything was delicious and there was no shortage of staff to take our orders or to get anything we might have needed. The manager was so pleasant and surprised us with a celebratory after dinner aperitif . I live in Massachusetts but have been a fan of Pappardella for over 10 years and it’s the little things that keep me coming back!

    Great food and great atmosphere. It appears to be in a neighborhood and made me wish it could be my neighborhood restaurant. Better then the place we ate in Little Italy on our last visit. Hubby got the pappardelle fungi e tartufo and it has such a good and rich flavor. I had the ravioli did formaggio which had a light and complex sauce. The finished up with the canolli which were great. Definitely coming back!!!

    Pappardella was fantastic yet again! The first time I came was for lunch in Summer 2021 when I was living in Manhattan. I happened to stumble across it after touring apartments on the UWS and had some delicious pasta and wine [huge wine list!]. This most recent visit, I came with my partner and his friend/colleague. They accommodated her gluten allergy right away and she enjoyed her gluten free garlic bread as well as pasta with sausage and vodka sauce. My partner and I shared a pizza with sausage as well as pasta with broccolini, sausage, etc. Everything was flavorful, fresh, and had great portions! The staff was attentive, but also let us catch up and enjoy our visit. 10/10 would recommend and will be returning!

    Non è un ristorante italiano. I piatti provati sono stati preparati molto male. Pensavo avessero organizzato una cena di fine anno, in realtà alle 10 (ma sul sito internet non c’era nessun avviso) chiudeva la cucina e poiché sono arrivato alle 9.30 mi è stato portato tutto molto velocemente.

    We had the most fabulous New Years eve dinner in Pappardella. Every member of staff we came into contact with was kind and helpful. The wagyu beef carpaccio and the rack of lamb on risotto were absolutely delicious. It was such a wonderful experience we had another venue booked for New Year’s Day dinner but we cancelled it and made another reservation with Pappardella! We can’t wait to come back tomorrow.
