We booked a table for 3 at the last minute. When we arrived the restaurant was very busy. We were seated in a few minutes. After we ordered we found out a 4th person would be joining us. The waitress was very accommodating. The food was delicious and the waitress was great if a bit harried.

Much better than initially expected. Lovely Italian waitress who was so enthusiastic. Nice vibe in the restaurant and very good food, clean plates all round. Reasonably priced for London. Would recommend

We have been going to La Pappardella for many years and always enjoy ourselves. We went on Sunday for my son's birthday and had a great time, lovely food, good atmosphere and excellent staff (sadly Luigi wasn't there on Sunday!)

Booked a table for lunch last Friday, we arrived and the restaurant was empty. I wondered if I had made a mistake choosing this restaurant. We sat down and ordered and our meal arrived freshly cooked and quickly served. By then the restaurant was half full and buzzing. Our food was very good if a trifle large. Nevertheless we ate it up and really enjoyed it.
Service was good and polite and courteous. I will eat here again if I am in the same London area.

Wonderful food and great service! Very busy place and people queuing outside! Unfortunately the staff was very keen on getting us out of the place asap because of many people waiting for a table. The bill was on the table even before we asked for it.

Very disappointing experience. Indifferent service, mediocre food, and quite frankly, just not good enough.

The local was overall quite good. It's an original italian restaurant managed by italian people. The food was very nice, even tho we ordered 2 pizzas margherita. However the space was quite tight, giving low to no privacy for couples. Anyway, I would recommend la pappardella for italian food lovers coming to london near south kensington area.

Good little spot for casual Italian. The food was good quality, portions a bit large in my opinion but some people appreciate that so I’m not complaining. Nothing stood out as outstanding but definitely very tasty and if I was in the area I would go back. Our party of four had calamari, bruschetta, a calzone, pizza and penne amatriciana which is an authentic Roman dish that for me gave this restaurant its authenticity (it was delicious though could have been a tad spicier). Service was authentically Italian..lol...little cool and aloof, a little slow (some call it relaxed) but professional and they warmed up with a few “Grazies”. House wines were also good. I recommend you give it a try.

Best italian place in west London!
Maybe more beer/vegetarian selections in your menu would be great as well as more chicken options in your pizzas. Other than thay however, we have a lovely evening!

Gentilissimi i camerieri, attenti alle esigenze del cliente e molto simpatici! Servizio veloce e eccellente. Sembrava di essere in Italia: bellissima Londra ma, per mangiare, meglio La Pappardella!

One of my favorites when visiting London. The homemade pastas are worth the trip from anywhere. Salads and appetizers are equally as nice and shareable.

Meal on Saturday lunchtime and as always La Papp fully delivered on everything including choice of table location. We enjoyed excellent starters followed by superb main courses and (rather decadently) desserts with ice cold Pinot Grigio. Excellent everything.

I had lunch at this quaint restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. The service was very good. I had salad, soup and spaghetti carbonara and I couldn’t finish all the food as the portions were large. Everything was well prepared.

Seriously impressed with this restaurant - I’ve just come back from a week in Puglia where a waiter who used to live in London recommended this as one of the few places serving authentic Italian food.

I took my Dad and step mum and every dish was superb. I had the pork belly pappardelle which was super tasty and others had seafood pasta and a pizza.

Highly recommend and will be bringing my partner straight back for date night!
