We dined at Pappadella's based on its wonderful reviews, and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is country charming, the service gracious, and the food -- oh, the food! Not wanting to embarrass my friends or myself was the only thing that kept me from picking up the plate that held my appetizer of little pasta sacs filled with mushrooms... More

My husband and I just returned home from an excellent dining experience at " Pappadella's. The food was freshly made, served hot, delicious and plenty to fill us up, with just enough room to try the great desserts. The service was friendly and fast. The restaurant is clean with real tablecloths and cloth napkins. The chef came out of the... More

Excellent service and food. Quaint restaurant off the beaten track but well worth it. Great stuffed salmon with seafood, fabulous portabella mushroom stuffed caps, plus many delightful Italian menu items. Come for a quiet lunch, no rush if you wish to linger. Busy on weekend so make a reservation. Pizza available for take out only.

You wouldn't know it from its appearance on the outside, but this is definitely one of Danbury's finest restaurants. Inside, however, the decor is tasteful and inviting. What makes this restaurant stand out is its food. The specials are wonderful, the food is always delicious and well-prepared, and the prices are quite reasonable. Don't miss this "diamond in the rough."

We checked this place out based on a recommendation. While the decor is not impressive, the service was great and the food was tasty & delicious. It's nicely priced as well. Check it out.

Food is always fresh and amazing. Always delicious. Favorites are the calamari, homemade pasta and the bread is the best ever. If something is not on the menu, they will try to make it for you. Fairly small place so reservations are recommended. Parking is limited in front but extra parking on the side.

A lovely evening with good food and wine for a group of 9 colleagues. Recommended!! The food was quickly served, huge portions and delicious! A little crowded and parking a challenge, especially because there was a lot of snow around.

A diamond in the rough. Out of the way but well worth the trip. Excellent value and superb food. Service was excellent and the staff was accommodating. The prices are far less than other fine places in the Danbury area. The fish was very fresh and pasta homemade was excellent. Definitely going back.
