It was our first time dining here, and we will be returning! The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the caprino pizza as an antipasti, and the agnello and salmone as our entrees, and the food was superb. Definitely put this restaurant on your list!
Great selection, service and food. Only issue was I ordered GF pasta and it was corrected right away. Food came out quicker than we expected and it was fresh and hot.
Amazing food, and they were very gracious about my friends’ allergies!
We came for our anniversary and had the most wonderful dinner. The staff was Fantastic! Would highly recommend. 4 Stars!
This was the third time at this restaurant. However, the third time was not a charm. 1:00pm lunch, very few people in the restaurant. Service was terrible. Our server seem to forget about us several times. I had to ask the manager for help. Disappointing.
The best Italian restaurant I’ve been to years. DO NOT pass up the opportunity to go here. Incredible.
Solid pasta dishes, well made! Prosciutto/melon appetizer was a little light on the prosciutto. Caprese appetizer was delicious!
Delicious food and great service. Highly recommend!
I used to eat here back-in-the-day (1985-86) when I used to live on the UWS. The fact that they are still here and post-pandemic means they must be doing something right! Food and service were excellent.
Everything was very good!! Enjoyable experience. Thank you
The food was excellent and very timely pre concert.
Beautiful and quaint restaurant with the best gluten free Italian dinner options. I go here every time I am in New York.
Really delicious Italian food and great weekend brunch at very reasonable prices. Good service and atmosphere too! A great find!
Poor service. Got to the restaurant and had reservation. We waited 10 minutes while they dragged an extra table for our seats.
Ran out of menus for our table of four/ we only had two menus between the four of us?!
Always love it but the waitress forgot about my rosemary allergy and brought me oil for bread with rosemary.
Food is decent but horrible service! Not worth the money or time!
I am glad that Paparadella seems to be thriving in this accursed pandemic. I just stopped in for quick dinner, just a glass of wine and whatever the special entree of the day was, and i was not disappointed. Lobster, bay scallops in cappellini with a terrific saffron sauce.? Outstanding. Viva la Paparadella!
Had a great birthday dinner friends. Food was amazing as always. Service was a little slow but that’s not normal here.
We've gone to Pappardella for years, but hadn't been there since February of 2020 because of the pandemic. We were able to reserve an outside table without worry of rain because they have awnings, and it did rain a bit while we were there without putting a damper on our evening at all.
The service was above and beyond; Mark, as always, made our evening extra special, and the whole service team was attentive and friendly.
Every food item exceeded our expectations, with a special shout out to the Bolognese, which was out of this world. We had appetizers, mains, drinks, desserts, coffees; everything was just perfect and the four of us left very happy.
We plan to go back again very soon.
First trip to NYC
If you’re looking for authentic, it’s here. While not a low budget meal, it’s definitely priced well for the neighborhood.
the seating distance from other occupied tables were not great, given there were a lot of other empty tables. apart from that the food was good, the truffle pasta was amazeballs !
This is one of our go to places on the UWS. Mark is usually our waiter. His wine suggestions are always what we are looking for. Gnocchi was my dish and it was hand made and the pesto sauce was excellent. Enjoy!
Great pasta and appetizers which were good sized and great for a party of four.
Food was delicious but service was spotty. Waited 15 min and no server came by, despite other wait staff clearing and bring food to table next to us. Had to eventually wave one of them down to get him to find out waiter - a good service team would be aware of a table waiting around and notify their team to get the waiter
Very strong watermelon margaritas. We had to water them down! Inside dining was comfortable and well spaced. We shared a delicious tri colored salad. Pastas are made on premises and it shows. Husband had the orchietti with sausage and I had the chicken parmigiana. Generous portions- I couldn’t finish! Won’t eat the bread so next time I can have dessert!
Excellent pastas. Neighborhood gem. Good value. Dependable.
We had been meaning to go to Pappardella many times but never seemed to get there. The food was delicious. The tables were nicely spaced. We will definitely be back.
The restaurant offered a very nice wine list at an excellent value. The meal was geat and diverse to satisfy all attendees, An excellent place to enjoy great Italian cuisine
Arrived and was too hot to sit outside. Restaurant was very accommodating.
The menu had a wide variety of items and the food we ordered came quickly and was delicious. Excellent Service. My second time here. A favorite go to place now on the Upper West Side.
The watermelon margarita special was delicious & very refreshing. They could have turned up the indoor AC a bit more.
Thank you for a lovely dining experience.
This was our second visit to Pappardella and it did not disappoint! The food is extremely high quality for a moderately priced Italian place. And the service is terrific. I started last night with a linguine with clams that was perfectly cooked and the clam sauce was super fresh and flavorful. My husband had an angel hair pasta "caccio e pepe" that again was perfectly al dente with a sauce to die for. Then I had a beautifully prepared and filleted branzino with delicious broccoli and a tasty raisin jam, while my husband had a rack of lamb that was superb, exactly to temperature. The portions are generous, we had enough to take home a second meal for ourselves! Good wine list, we had a super tasty Verdicchio. We opted not to have dessert, but they topped us off with a lovely limoncello on the house. This is our new favorite place! Highly recommended!
We had a delicious dinner last night. Both our meals were so tasty and simple, our caesar salad fresh and cold and dessert to die for. We ate outside and really enjoyed the evening.
It took over 20 minutes for us to get a waiter and another 20 minutes to get our drinks. No apology or any mention. It was a slow really early weekday dinner.
They were packed, super busy and I was there by myself. yet the service was exemplary and the food is terific. Great sunday afternoon outdoors in NYC!
This was an incredible experience! It was my birthday and they made me feel absolutely special! David was a great server. Tip them well, they deserve it!! I give 10/10 on all fronts. Absolutely exquisite.
I’ve been going to Pappardella for many years and the food and service is outstanding.
Wine was bad and the waitress was very defensive when we pointed it out. Should have mentioned it to the manager instead.
Great meal. Good tunes.
