We had a wonderful dinner and experience. We sat outside and were served dessert and an after dinner drink for our anniversary from the owner. The food was excellent. I would highly recommend. Especially the mushroom pasta dish!

This is the first time in the 4 years since I was diagnosed with celiac disease that I was able to eat one of my favorite fishes in an Italian restaurant. Pappardella has an extensive gluten-free menu and uses gluten-free breadcrumbs to make parmigiana dishes. I ordered eggplant parmigiana and was in seventh heaven. We were a party of four, me being the only one with a food allergy, and everyone enjoyed their meal. The flourless chocolate cake topped off a totally enjoyable experience. I’m definitely coming back.

Ambiance outside wasn’t good because of traffic and construction noise, but inside is much better. We decided to dine outdoors due to great weather and COVID avoidance.

6:30 reservation at Pappardella before a 8 pm show at The Beacon (1 minute walk). This is our second time at this restaurant gem. My wife and I each had a pasta dish (Shrimp with spinach linguini, and pappardelle in mushroom ragu). Pasta extremely fresh and delicious, likely made from scratch on premise. Food quality and taste was again excellent. Wish the pasta quantity in each dish was about 10-20% more, not only because it tasted so good, but because it was necessary to get full and feel satisfied (lost 1/2 a star). If not for the appetizer (cheese platter) and two bread baskets (asked for refill), we probably would have left a bit hungry (we consider ourselves ‘normal’ eaters). Bread is excellent BTW. Cheese platter app included 4-5 different high quality and delicious cheeses, and a tablespoon of fig spread, but disappointed it did not also include any crackers, grapes, or olives, which would have helped change up the various cheese tastes to better appreciate them (lost another 1/2 a star), especially for $21 app cost. Service was okay, not bad by any means, just not as friendly and welcoming as we prefer, and drinks empty for 15 minutes (I needed to ask for 2nd drink with dinner). Maybe the restaurant just got slammed at the same time. Lastly, it took 45 minutes for main meal to arrive, 30 minutes after finishing the app. Although we did NOT complain about the wait at all, the manager apologized for the delay and was very gracious, taking the cost of 2 drinks off the tab without us even asking for it. Very nice and classy. Nice and cozy place, clean bathrooms (bathrooms down a flight of stairs for those who can’t physically maneuver stairs). Good value for the main dishes, but would have paid a few $ more each dish for more quantity. Overall, we had a great time, app, meals and drinks and our ‘wish list’ noted above will NOT prevent us from coming back again!

Restaurant offered choice of indoor or outdoor seating. I chose indoor but request was not honored. Should not have been a choice if request only accommodated based on availability.

Going to the beacon theatre for a show. Decided to try pappardella. The restaurant was very cute and inviting. People were very friendly but it took a long time to get someone to come to our table. We ordered some apps and cocktails. Bruschetta was delicious as was the buratta.
Waited on a 2 nd drink for awhile. The restaurant was busy because of the show but they should have anticipated this. We also ate the flatbread pizza which I would not recommend. The crust was sort of dry and overall bland. Also had the cacio e peppe. Was very good.
Would definitely try this place again.

Our server Mark was phenomenal.
After I was served the wrong entree he remedied it quickly.
The lemoncello he bought us was just a bonus

It's certainly a drag to have to write fifty characters, but since it's just fifty characters, not fifty words, it's all right. We enjoyed lunch at Pappardella very much, and sat there for a long time.

Perfect night. Didn’t catch her name, but the General Manager helped us choose a perfect wine, had excellent food suggestions, and just made the evening that much more special. Kudos for what she (literally) brought to the table.
Atmosphere was lovely, food was beyond good, and the Tiramisu to top it all off was next level!

Caesar salad and pasta very good. Fish was good not spectacular.
Apple tart tasty, crust should have been flakier.
Will go back, try other entrees.

Some dishes better than others. Not impressed with spaghetti & meatballs. Sauce and spaghetti had a gloppy consistency. Meatballs just ok. Chicken Parm very good and a generous portion. Papadella with mushrooms in cream sauce very good. Mimosas lovely. 3 of us shared the Apple Tarte and were satisfied. Will keep going back and trying new dishes. Staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. Food and drinks came quickly which was impressive for a busy Saturday night. This is a reliable neighborhood place.

It was our first time dining here, and we will be returning! The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the caprino pizza as an antipasti, and the agnello and salmone as our entrees, and the food was superb. Definitely put this restaurant on your list!

This was the third time at this restaurant. However, the third time was not a charm. 1:00pm lunch, very few people in the restaurant. Service was terrible. Our server seem to forget about us several times. I had to ask the manager for help. Disappointing.

I used to eat here back-in-the-day (1985-86) when I used to live on the UWS. The fact that they are still here and post-pandemic means they must be doing something right! Food and service were excellent.
