Such a gracious welcome! My guest was late and I was seated with an understanding smile. Staff continued to be attentive when I changed my seat (the waitress recommended an even better one) and these grateful diners also accepted her menu recommendation. The pasta and pizza were both outstanding (as well as the latte). Wish we’d had time for dessert!

I tried this restaurant again after a disappointing meal a few days before. I was glad I came back. Pappardelle is wonderful if you’re gluten free like me. I had salmon as a main course and it was
quite good. The other three people in my party were pleased with their meals as well.
It was a busy Friday night, however, and it was very noisy!

Both the service and food here was excellent! My wife and I went there with no knowledge of the restaurant after a day at the Natural History Museum. When we arrived we were seated quickly, the waiter introduced himself and interacted with us through out the entire evening. He recommended an excellent Italian Tuscan red and walked us through the specials. Both the appetizers and meals were delicious and we never felt rushed by any of the staff.

I highly recommend restaurant if your by the NHM!

I usually enjoy this restaurant. I felt the staff was not attentive and hard to find. We had a couple of the daily specials and they were just OK. Sorry to say..... it was a disappointing visit.

Disappointed. I’ve eaten here before and been pleased by gluten free options. This time the gluten free toast was undercooked, the gluten free pasta was hard, and there weren’t enough mushrooms or olive oil in the dish.
Will try again; perhaps you had an off night.

First of all, we arrived early and were seated, but the hostess did not mark us as having honored our Open Table reservation.
Secondly, our waiter was not committed to our table and our needs. The food was good enough, but not outstanding. The ambiance was also good, but would have been so much better if we had had a more attentive waiter.

I had picked the restaurant due to location (convenient point for friends from UES and UWS to meet for dinner; easily accessible via mass transit); how happy we were to have chosen it! I had the fileto di salmone raspighi (with a glass of Gavi) and one friend had the branzino alla griglia (with that evening's signature cocktail containing gin, Prosecco, and I forgot what else). We both ooh'ed and ahh'ed throughout our meal and planned who we'd bring there next. What a find; so very happy we happened upon it!

The food was great and the servers were very friendly, just a little slower than what we expected. Wouldn’t stop us from coming back or recommending it to others, though.

We all had a delicious meal and our family member with Celiac was very happy with the extensive gluten free menu and her final choices tasted amazing! We all tasted the Gluten free bruschetta and couldn’t tell the difference from the regular!

Dollar for dollar, one of the best Italian restaurants in New York City. Wonderfiul mastery of herbs, textures and blends of ingredients. Atmosphere throwback to an earlier New York.

Outstanding in all respects. This ranks in the top 3 of my favorite Italian restaurants anywhere. The food was wonderful and the staff were a joy. The menu was incredibly varied, but focused on traditional Italian fare without too many bells or whistles. The tomato sauce was the best I’ve ever tried—hearty but not overwhelming. It is located in a quieter part of the city, so you can sit outside and comfortably watch the world go by. Plus, they accommodated my nut allergies with a smile, which made the whole experience even better.

Food was presented creatively. Service very good & responsive. We went on a Sunday night, it was very crowded, and so noisy I had trouble hearing the 3 other people at my table. We did not drink but still the bill was very high for a neighborhood place.

Had brunch at Pappardella on Saturday. I had the salsiccia omelet and my partner had the eggs Benedict. The omelet was very tasty -- sweet Italian sausage and broccoli and other veggies. The Benedict was well-prepared, with prosciutto instead of Canadian bacon. We were the first diners at the opening at 11 a.m., but the restaurant filled up quickly, including a fairly large group of theater-goers from Connecticut, so I would recommend reservations. Service was prompt and friendly. This was our first visit to Pappardella; we will definitely go again.

The restaurant has a very 90s vibe, with decor that hasn't changed in a while yet the pappardelle with peas was good and the toasted bread and marinara tasty. Wine selection by the glass could be slightly bigger but we had a good montepulciano. Didn't try too many dishes but I would give it another chance.

We used to live in the neighborhood and always LOVED this restaurant. We were excited to go back but when we got there on a very hot/humid night ...there was no a/c. It did kick in near the end of the meal though. My husband ordered the pork chop - they were out. We both ordered pasta...it took a long time to come out. Wait staff came to pour water, and she poured water right onto table, giggled and then didn’t bring a towel. These were a bunch of minor complaints though. Overall food delicious and vibe perfect for a neighborhood place. I suspect we may just have arrived on an off night.
