We went for Christmas Day lunch and had a lovely meal in a festive outdoor environment. It really made an unexpected holiday warm and beautiful in the midst of a pandemic. I would highly recommend Pappardella for group dining.

The perfect place to dine outside for lunch on the Upper Westside. The heater was on and we were fine- temp in high 40s. Food was perfect--we were celebrating a birthday and we felt like we were in Italy. Look forward to going back.

Because we are all dining outdoors, the noise level is really loud every time a truck goes by, but their outdoor dining accommodations are versatile and pleasant. As has always been the case when we have eaten at Pappardella, the chef is always willing to make requested changes from the standard menu when asked. The food is always good and the service as well, even in these very trying times. I hope that we will be back to normal soon making most of this review irrelevant.

My husband and I are quietly snobby about Italian food, but Papardella has some of the best. We both had pasta dishes (the pasta was cooked just right) and enjoyed the featured wines. Juggling outdoor diners made the service a little slow, but our servers were attentive and responsive.

Food is really good. Service was spotty. Fortunately we were not in a hurry. We would return if time was not a concern. We sat outside during the pandemic. It is possible that they are still adjusting.

Our anniversary dinner was bound to be different in the pandemic, especially since one of us is still a little worried about eating indoors. But Papardella has a lovely outdoor set-up, and we love love love the food -- if you're gluten-free, you must try their pasta and garlic bread. It's a delight.

Good food and decent portions; subpar service. Recommend the cacio e pepe and the garlic bread. Don't get the sangria.

a very nice outdoor as well as indoor dining spot with an excellent menu plus daily specials and many good wine choices. the service always starts off well but then dissipates and needs sprucing up.

Early dinner out with friends. The food was great, service was great. There wasn't a long wait for anything. However there was a large group who were noisy, which made hearing ourselves a little difficult, but overall we had a good time and the restaurant was a good choice. I give them 4 stars.

I had a wonderful lunch at Pappardella. They have lovely outdoor seating with protection between tables. I had the kale and beet salad to start, which was delicious. I then had the classic flatbread which was also great. I finished with the tiramisu, which was excellent. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. A great neighborhood dining choice.

Terrible service. We had to wait over an hour to get our food after we had ordered and only got it after going repeatedly to the host to complain.
The server never came to the table even after being called at, not even to serve us water.
Would not recommend this place, we would never return.

Came here with my daughter to celebrate her 18th birthday. She flew in from the west coast and loves this restaurant. Unfortunately, we got a server who was apparently having a bad night. NEVER asked once if our meal was okay, if we needed more drinks etc. My Cosmopolitan was probably the worst I'd ever had, the next drink almost as bad. They need a new bartender. I sent the Cosmo back AND WAS STILL CHARGED FOR IT. The rest of the wait staff tried to get our food and drinks (because our server was clearly not interested in helping us) and made us feel like we were trash, despite dressing nicer than half the guests there. I won't be back.

MUST go here - all of the food was incredible and delicious! Big plus is they have an extensive gluten free menu if you have to accommodate a group with food allergies. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!
