lovely evening for three 70 plus people. Food was excellent. Staff was terrific. Felt like we were in Italy. (sadly, the closest we can get now!)

This was our first dinner out during the pandemic.
We selected a table we felt comfortable with.
My sister had the fruits de mar and loved it.
I had the halibut special and enjoyed very much.
The white sangrias were wonderful!

For outdoor dining, Pappardella is a delight. The ambiance is festive and the food is excellent. This is the second time I have been here and ordered the branzino. It is delicious. Some of the best I have had (and I order it a lot).
The only drawback was the waitstaff. They were very pleasant but inattentive. It was difficult to get anyone's attention.

The outdoor space was very good. I was surprised by a couple of safety protocols that were not being followed at this time-the serving of bread and the original menus being handed out which were hopefully wiped down page by page between guests.

This is the first time I've eaten out in six months. I'm a doctor and honestly didn't want to expose myself unnecessarily all this time so as not to endanger my patients. This is the first restaurant I felt safe enough to patronize. Of course the food was delicious. The service was wonderful and warm. And the cleanliness and spacing of tables was beyond reproach.

Bravo to the owners and staff and chefs. You guys are amazing and I thank you for a much needed respite from cooking and cleaning.

It was my first outdoor dining experience since Covid started and what a delight it was! It will definitely have me out and about more. We got a great table on the side of the restaurant under a tent that they place partially in the street. They created a space that didnt make feel like you were in the road and that it was meant to be there. The tables were accurately place over 6 ft apart. The ambiance as the sun came down was great. And of course, per usual, the food was absolutely delish. The service was great, never had an empty wine or water glass. The manager came to see how we were and even asked our opinion of the new set-up.
Highly recommend.

This was my second time visiting Papardella with my best friend since their re-opening and it was just as fantastic as the first. We had a wonderful table that had more than enough space from others and a fantastic waiter that even brought out a bottle of wine so we could take a photo of the label! Overall it was a wonderful experience – we can’t wait to go back!

Our server Aline served us the (single) glass of wine despite being nicely reminded twice and well after our appetizer rolled in much later. Water glasses were left empty throughout the meal and pepper grinder left on a tiny table well into entrees despite several busboys passing. We decided on here just for the sautéed calamari (appetizer) and then the server strongly recommended the special tagliatelle with halibut. She kept pulling her mask down to speak. Calamari was surprisingly underwhelming (with two legs) in a lackluster broth, raisins, pine nuts and several tomatoes. We decided to say nothing in the wake of phase 4 to support the restaurant. Tagliatelle was a nice portion, but it was disappointingly again tasteless in red sauce. We politely informed our server, still leaving the appetizer out. She said nothing in response, offered no solution, left the table, and never informed the manager. My partner fed me his as she never returned. The saving grace was the delightful manager Chris whom we were able to inform. He ensured the rest of the meal went the way it should. Why the three stars? My partner’s Orecchiette Baresi with sausage and broccoli rabe pesto was suitable with marvelous flavor! FOH needs some more retraining.

This was a perfect choice for the 1st dinner experience post Covid. The restaurant is on the corner with plenty socially distanced outdoor seating with no neighboring restaurants that would result in overcrowding as I've witnessed everywhere in the neighborhood. The food and service was excellent and I thank you for providing such good service during these trying times!

Great service, from the moment I checked in with the hostess to the server. Polite, professional, friendly. Again, excellent service. The food, very tasty, great quality of their meats and the fresh watermelon mojito was outstanding. The asparagus with pesto and mozzarella was great, but finally the main entree. I ordered Australian lamb, and it was phenomenal. Highly recommend it

The service was very friendly and attentive and the food was authentic and tasted very good. We got the pappardelle pasta special for dessert we ordered the cheesecake and the apple tart. The apple tart was a lot for one person - I’d recommend sharing!
