The wait staff did a great job covering inside and outside tables on a busy evening. The menu is varied and all of our dishes were really well executed. The popularity of this restaurant over a long time is well deserved

I loved the Sunday brunch/lunch menu. I will definitely be back. I asked for a modification of an order, and they were extremely accommodating.

The chilled carrot soup was too spicy to eat. I ordered Flounder Oreganata over Orzo Salad. The Orzo Salad was excellent. The fish was . . . o.k., I guess, but the one thing it was NOT was flounder. It was a thick and hearty slab of white. The server insisted that it was (twice, once after talking with the chef) but I cook flounder frequently and I know that fish when I see it, and this was not flounder.

We had pretty slow service at lunch-unclear why. Few vegetarian offerings. Pasta with oil/garlic was quite dry/bland-would have benefitted from broccoli/vegetables. The other guests did enjoy the pizza, ravioli and tagliatelli with mushrooms.

So glad to have a meal here again. Their outdoor space is perfect for pandemic proof dining. My husband loved his bolognese. He always does love it here. I didn't love the cacio et pepe. So, avoid that one. Good wine list. Great neighborhood place.

The food at this restaurant was pretty disgusting. It was very clear to me that pasta sauce was microwaved. The pizza was also pretty nasty and it’s not clear whether they used the microwave on that as well. This is probably the worst Italian food I’ve had in New York or anywhere.

Pappadella has a great gluten free menu and for my mother who is celiac, it is a must visit every time she is in NYC. The food was hot, fresh and flavorful, and she never misses the gluten. Service is always friendly and efficient for NYC standards. Will visit again.

Ate indoors - very comfortable as most people still want to be outside.
Much less frenetic and less noisy inside.
Food always delicious - try their pizzas!
Service delightful. Great neighborhood place or if you are going to Natural History or NY Historical Society Museums - or Central Park!

Delicious food and attentive service are the mainstays at this Upper West Side spot. If you like classic Italian fare served in a very comfortable rustic setting then be sure to check Pappardella out. You won’t be disappointed.

We had a really nice brunch at Pappardella, everything hit the right notes. Tried the special celery juice, which was quite good (would be better with alcohol, but that's for next time). Scrambled eggs were good, bacon was excellent, my friend enjoyed her eggplant lasagna. We had a fruit salad for dessert that seemed to have been composed of the sweetest, ripest apples and oranges (there was also cantaloupe and strawberries, but I don't like those, apparently the cantaloupe was so-so, but for cantaloupe that's probably the best you can hope for.

Service was friendly and efficient. We sat in the large outdoor shed on the side street, watched the world walking by and had a wonderful time. Pappardella and the rest of the Upper West Side was buzzing, people still wearing masks, but restaurants were full, the weather was great, and the pandemic seemed to be losing this round.

While I've been to pappardella many time with wonderful food, the last visit was an absolute disaster. After 24 hours I'm still suffering from indigestion. The food was beyond awful.
