great dinner

I went in with the intention of having a nice meal and was pleasantly surprised how good it was. It's nice to see such a classic restaurant that is doing what they are good at and what we the dinners want. The staff was super nice and when my girl needed gluten free they had a whole menu. They have won a new regular.

Pappardella Central Park Picnic

The Girlfriend and I shared a lovely Pappardella picnic in Central Park one afternoon that included: - One prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato panini - Two roasted eggplant and peppers, goat cheese, balsamic reduction paninis - Antipasto platter with prosciutto, bresaola, salami, gorgonzola, goat cheese, parmigiana, artichokes, and olives - Pasta salad with penne, basil, and cherry tomatoes in pesto - Ricotta cheesecake - Apple cake - Hazelnut biscotti - Lemon soda To put it simply, we had quite the feast. There was no denying that the ingredients were great -- the Italian cold cuts, the stinky yet more delicious cheeses, the al dente and refreshing pasta and cherry tomatoes. Was a very romantic afternoon, and only cost about $45.. Would certainly do it again...

Delicious Brunch!

Brunch is like a religion to me, so I'm always on the lookout for new places to try out especially on the Upper West Side. This place is 2 blocks from the park which is perfect for a Saturday early afternoon in the fall. You should definitely try the smoked salmon crostini with egg< ricotta & green onions. It also comes with a mixed green salad. The food is so fresh and they make one of the best Bloody Mary's I've had. I plan on going back tomorrow to try out the spaghetti frittata.

The food is very mediocre, and the decor is out-of-date and not cozy. I would not recommend it.

THis is an alright spot in the summer when it's warm out. But during the winter, the place is cold. It's kind of bare and cold in the room, making your meal uncomfortable. Also, the food isn't the best. It's alright, but nothing great. There is a "La Papardella" in London owned by an Italian family. But the one in NY is owned by an Indian man, and the food reflects it. Not authentic.

Great UWS Staple with delicious pasta & pizza

while i have come here for a while, i have to say these guys really get better with age. the menu is enticing and recently they started offering delicious gluten free pasta, garlic bread and pizza. my husband is so relieved that they offer this and really tasty too. we just had lunch during the warm days and to sit out on their terrace with very good wine, personable service and rustic italian delicatessen like a crispy branzino and fresh gnocchi pesto, i look very forward to sitting here all summer!

Food was very good for a traditonal italian american joint. Large, affordable wine list and big portions sum it up. nice option for an early sunday supper with the family. personal pizzas for the kids satisfied my picky eater. kid friendly too, a nice surprise since most of the 'fine dining' places on columbus give us the shoo once they see the strollers coming.

Proabably the best UWS Italian

Funnily enough every other site has Pappardella listed as a top place but not ny magazine.. I find that strange which is why I am posting this. We have lived on the UWS for 15 years now and have tried almost every place in the area. We have consistently gone back to Pappardella whether its date night with the husband or a pizza snack with the kids. The restaurant has fabulous, fresh pastas and main courses as well. The wine list is affordable with many selections by the glass and the staff make you feel at home. We love you Pappardella thanks for the years of good service and great food.

Very expensive & poor quality

The excitement of seeing gluten free pasta on the menu quickly diminished when I ordered delivery from here. I ordered a cobb salad, penne bolognese and 2 diet cokes (delivery). I received a small bowl of lettuce, very small portion of bolognese and 2 diet cokes from the soda fountain. Sent it back, will never order from there again.

Good, but still not up to my expectations

The food was good, the lobster ravioli were ok. For a 100$ meal, I would have expected better, it's a bit expensive. The environment looks nice, and as always (in the US), the service was way too fast. Ordered a beer before lunch and I got my plate and my glass of wine 5 minutes later.
