One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Their food has been getting better and better. Service is friendly and efficient. Ambiance is nice, inside and outside. Good heating system.

A good option if visiting the nearby American Museum of Natural History. The margarita pizza was fair, but the two pasta dishes ordered were good, with portion sizes appropriate for lunch. Don’t skip the garlic bread with marinara to start.

We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at Papparadella. The wine was good, the food was great and the desserts terrific. Best of all was the friendly staff and attentive service. Would love to visit again. Did you know that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pappardelle

Pappardella has fabulous food and a generous menu with something on it for everyone. I like being tucked away in a corner watching the the servers move through a puzzle of tables covered with beautiful food and smiling patrons. There is a buzz about this place that is so authentic: you’ll experience friends, families, and neighbors enjoying excellent food, while interacting with colorful servers seeking to please. No pretense here-just of multi-region Italian heaven.

Restaurant a bit noisy. So we ate outside. Very cozy & warm, despite 40 degree temps. Short staffed as are all restaurants these days but we had a great waitress who really hustled. We never had to wait. They do offer appetizer size on pasta main course (when asked) & my Rigatoni Bolognese quite good. And a great gimlet.

What a gem! Was in the neighborhood overnight and found this place through Open Table. Warm ambiance, amazing food, excellent wine choices, and a great waiter. (The host was less warm but that was just a few seconds of the evening.) I will be back the next time I’m staying in the Upper West Side.

First, when I reserve outdoors, I expect it to be outdoors, not the outdoor area, with which I'm very familiar, totally enclosed. That's not outdoors, that's indoors. They didn't have a real outdoor table for us (there was some confusion as to what happened to the table; evidently it was used for a large party of 12 kids who were having a birthday party right next to us), so we accepted an indoor table in the formerly outdoor area. The GM wasn't particularly nice about the entire situation. No checking of our vaccination status or that of the 10 12-year-olds to my knowledge. Although my lobster ravioli was very good, my friend's chicken parmesan was cold and not particularly tasty. I will never return.

My family has visited Pappardella many times. Usually for brunch, which is excellent.

The lunch experience was up to our expectations. The food was excellent. The only difference between lunch and brunch is that the restaurant attracts a much larger crowd. But the staff was attentive to our needs and we were served in a timely manner.

We look forward to returning soon.

Delicious meals (osso bucco & a mushroom pasta, lentil soup). Excellent service. Table was out in the sidewalk shed but we preferred that as the main dining room was a little noisy

Drinks were generous. My wife had a bruschetta appetizer which she enjoyed; I had the zuppe di pesce di mare which was excellent. Her main course was penne bisanzio which she enjoyed. I unfortunately can’t say the same for the veal parmigiana; I found the veal cutlet to be thin and a bit chewy; the accompanying spaghetti was average and the entire dish drowned in sauce; a pet peeve.

Tables were crowded together and the noise level left something to be desired; upon reflection I might have preferred to sit in the covered outdoor area. I will say that the service was prompt and attentive; prices are reasonable for upper west side standards.

All in all I wouldn’t classify it as a negative experience, rather average. I wasn’t unhappy, but I wasn’t jumping for joy either. On the whole, average food at average prices; an average experience.

Our lunch was excellent! We started with the Giant Meatball which was so good! The olives were great and the Riviera salad was delicious. We had the Rigatoni Bolognese, Hanger Steak and Gamberi al Parmigiano. All were outstanding - so tasty and prepared perfectly. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be visiting again soon!

Loved that the item I wanted, while on the online menu, was not on the menu on-site, but the waitress had someone make it up just for me (spaghetti carbonara.) That shows wonderful customer service. Only other suggestion - offer butter with the bread too, not just the dipping oil. Some people aren’t as fond of the oil.

The tables are much too close together and the noise level too loud. We were about 12 inches from chairs next to and behind me. When I complained to the waitress she said “The pandemic is over we don’t have to follow those rules anymore.” I said “The pandemic is NOT over, this is just too close.” She was a bit belligerent about it but relented eventually and agreed that the pandemic was not over. Food was very good, as always. But noise level extremely high. Not as enjoyable as we would have hoped. We have been there many times. This was a Wed. evening. Sit outside if it’s not too cold.

Our experience at Pappardella was excellent. The service was spot on, the Vegetable soup was so so flavorful and served at just the right temperature, and the Caesar salad was perfect. What a great meal. My friend had the Pesto Gnocchi. It also was prepared perfectly.
