    We came to Papparadella to celebrate my mother’s 70th birthday after a friend recommended it to us, and we were not disappointed. The staff was so friendly and the food was amazing. All 6 people in our party agreed it was a fantastic evening. Can’t wait to return the next time we are in NYC!

    Attentive service and large comfortable indoor dining room. Carpaccio and fried buratta were delicious. Carbonara was creamy and perfectly seasoned. Bolognese not to the level of the former. Great location; close to Lincoln Center and Beacon Theatre.

    Pappardella is a fun, casual neighborhood restaurant that we've enjoyed for years. Last night was our first time back in a while and the food was terrific -a wonderful, refreshing tri-color salad and a pasta primavera in oil and garlic. The wait staff was very friendly. The biggest change was the outside seating which looks rather fun on the 75th street side.

    Not enough waitstaff for the number of tables and diners. We waited 10 mins for menus, after flagging down a waitress and 30 mins in total to actually order, again after flagging down the same waitress. No one ever checked on us after we received our food and we had to, once again, flag down the waitress to get our check. No one stopped to ask if we wanted dessert or coffee. We were tired of waiting so just got the check and left. Its a shame as the manager was there resetting tables but seemed in a terrible mood and never checked to see how anyone was doing. It's great that they can expand their business with the outside seating but they have to hire more help. We will not be going back.

    They offer many traditional menu items for for both meat eaters and vegetarians, as well as a very accessible menu of gluten free options. My GF Eggplant Parmesan was a treat I haven’t had in a long time, and I enjoyed every bite. A GF roll and pasta were also readily available. My husband said his chicken parm was very good, too, and we both loved the homemade vinaigrette on the salad we shared. We also shared a delicious flourless cake dessert. Service was very efficient at our table in the restaurant’ outside covered space, which was quite pleasant,

    We suggested that the linguine with vongole clams be served in a large bowl rather than on a cast iron plate and having to transfer the dish into the bowl. The manager suggested it was not as easy to do as it sounds from the kitchen point of view. A much smaller bowl could be used for the shells from the clams. The meal was delicious from start to finish. Thank you.

    Service was terrible. Water glasses never refilled, never asked if we wanted another glass of wine, asked if we wanted dessert while dinner plates still on the table….and the restaurant was only 1/3 filled with plenty of staff. Food was tasteless….no garlic nor seasoning. Overpriced…..$200. For 3 glasses of wine, 2 apps and 4 pastas. Many other delicious Italian places in the neighborhood.

    We ordered drinks, appetizers, entrees, coffee and dessert. It was all beautifully presented and delicious. Servers and wait staff were efficient, friendly, courteous and non obtrusive. We sat outside and we didn’t sense the pedestrians hovering as they passed. We were there for almost 3 hours without feeling rushed.

    I have only wonderful things to say about Pappardella! The food, the atmosphere, and the service couldn't be better. Plus, one of our family members has Celiac Disease and Pappardella is one of very few restaurants that has a separate gluten-free menu, separate cookware for gluten-free food to avoid cross contamination., and a well educated staff on the needs of people with allergies. I give it an A+... perfect in every way.

    Every item we ordered for party of 3, pre-theatre, was excellent. One party ordered a pasta with alfredo sauce that was not on the menu, but was presented. The eggplant appetizer was generous and tasty, as was branzino. The specialty drinks we ordered were delicious and refreshing. The only disappointment was our service waiter who seemed to overlook us and lesser staff had to pitch in, we were surprised Nice location, not too busy compared to theater district. Will visit again, and hope for better service.

    The occasion that provoked our visit was taking an out-of-town friend to dinner in our UWS neighborhood. The food was tasty, and the service attentive but not obsequious. My lone criticism has to do with the temperature of the bottle of Chianti that we selected—it was served at room temperature rather than the requisite 54 degrees. Petty, perhaps, but I know the proper temperature makes a difference in taste.
