    From the food to the service to the ambiance, Pappardella delivers! We had three different pasta dishes and they were all outstanding. The Caesar salad and endive salad were wonderful as well. The manager is welcoming and professional and is always there to admit his clientele.

    The food is delicious but the service is slow. This was not my first time at Pappardella and the service continues to disappoint. We always have to seek out the waiter/waitress, it takes forever to get the food and check, etc. Not sure I would return for dining but may do take out.

    Very good food and service , only negative is extra charge for anchioves on a Cesar Salad is foolish. The definition of Cesar Salad includes anchioves . And they are the least expensive ingredient in the kitchen , why upset people over .50 cents

    We’ve been going to Pappardella for years and have always loved our experience there. Tonight we dined with a server named Freddy, who was honestly one of the worst servers we’ve encountered in Manhattan. To start, he didn’t greet us or display any common courtesies when we sat down. He barked the drink special and rushed us through our order, running away before we could even add in our appetizer. He gave us the check while we were still eating our dinner and didn’t even ask us if we wanted desert or another glass of wine. One of our entrees was terrible and the bread was stale. He then gave us a pen that was out of ink and exploded all over. We are not ones to complain, but the service tonight honestly ruined our previously amazing opinions on Pappardella. It’s a shame this server is negatively impacting a restaurant that’s been around our neighborhood for so many years. The owner was extremely apologetic but i’m not sure if we will be going back anytime soon.

    Food was good and service was a little slow in the beginning, however, once our order was taken everything fell into place and we had a good time. This is my go to restaurant when we go to events at the Beacon Theater.

    Wonderful time at Pappardella last night. We were party of 4 sitting outside on a hot night, but a fan provided a great breeze. Service was good, though took a bit longer for our entrees than it should have. However, everything was delicious, including a special cold corn soup and peach pizza (don't knock it till you've tried it!)

    We had a 6:30 dinner reservation and a show to get to at the Beacon for 8:00. Should be plenty of time to eat and walk one block. We sat down and we're noticed about 6:40 by our waitress. She took our order and said our bread and water would be right out. We didn't get water until 7:00 and the bread didn't come out until 7:20. Still no sign of our appetizers which were mozzarella and tomato and clams and scallops soup. Shouldn't take too long for either of these plates. By 7:30, an hour later, we told our waitress that we needed to leave in 15 minutes to get to our show. Magically right after that our mozzarella and tomato came out. By 7:40, an hour and 10 minutes after we ordered, our clams were still not out and our pizza was no where in sight. Now remember we ordered at 6:40 so over an hour later there was no still pizza. We told the waitress to forget our pizza, which I'm sure was not even in the oven yet, and close out our bill. We paid $55 for a bottle of wine that was listed on their menu for $46 and $25 for the clams. The comped our mozzarella, which was nice but we still missed the opening song of the concert and we were starving all night.. I would not recommend this place unless you have a lot of time to waste and you have a lot of money. I mean $80 for wine and one appetizer, come on. This place was more expensive than advertised and very disappointing service. I can't blame our waitress but the bread guy should have been on it right away. Do yourself a favor. Bring an Italian hero in the car for one tenth the price and more filling and go straight to your concert. You'll thank me later !!! By the way I don't blame our waitress I blame the place. It must be very stressful for the waitresses to have to hear this from the patrons and not be able to do anything about it.

    While the food at Pappardella is always good, I found the service on my recent visit wasn't quite as good as I've come to expect there. I was there for lunch - taking a friend out for her birthday. Unfortunately, I felt our waiter wasn't very attentive when he should have been, and it usually took me waving him over to place our order or ask for more salad dressing, etc. rather than him checking on us to see if we needed anything. I was surprised, since the restaurant was far from filled (there were maybe 4 other tables and another waitperson). I've been a waitperson in the past and know that attentiveness to the customer is paramount. It didn't seem that way on this visit.

    The lobster ravioli was outstanding. The service was just okay. The restaurant was too warm to really relax and enjoy our meal. The bathroom was unbearably hot. The music was so generic that it didn't set anything other than a "pop" mood - not what we were looking for on our evening out. While the food was good, the ambiance and service were lack-luster, at best.

    They do a wonderful job with celiac and gluten free dining. However, our waiter was inattentive. Didn’t tell us specials, didn’t check on us, didn’t bring items that were asked for. The hostess was lovely and the gf garlic bread and gf pizza were great.
