I would strongly recommend you avoid this place. I got the Groupon picnic for two and was more than disappointed. First, it is grossly overpriced at $40 for the two little Panini, pasta salad, and antipasto that you get. Plus, they will make you pay another $5 there--tax and "packing fee". For $45, you can get this food and more... More

Pappardella has become our favorite restaurant in this beautiful NYC neighborhood. My family and I were there for the third time on Friday, August 15. We brought with us a close friend of our son's and had gone into the city to take a tour of Columbia University. I had no doubts about where to make a dinner reservation in... More

My daughter and I had dinner on a recent Summer Sunday evening. The food was amazing. The service was excellent. The ambiance is welcoming, relaxing and very nice overall. The doors were open to the sidewalk dining area as it was a beautiful city summer evening. Highly recommend the gnocchi. The cannoli's were delicious. Wine was very good also. We... More

The eggs benedict with prosciutto on a brioche was superb. The indoor space is lovely, plus they have outdoor seating. The wait staff is attentive.

When we were looking at places to eat near Central Park we ran across a deal for a picnic meal for two that you could pick up from Pappardella. I'm so glad we decided to purchase the picnic! We submitted the request for our picnic online the day before through their website. When we arrived the picnic was ready to... More

They put together a multi-course packed picnic lunch that can be picked up and enjoyed in Central Park. Everything was delicious and it was so easy and enjoyable. We especially enjoyed the chocolate cake/brownie dessert (we even asked for and received the recipe so we could make it when we got back home)

We found ourselves in the area around lunchtime, so tried unsuccessfully to get into another restaurant. We weren't really feeling strongly enough to wait that long for a table, so we walked on down the street and found Pappardella. Our service was very good. We had carpaccio d'manzo and insalata riviera for starters. The salad was really tasty, with generous... More

Had a travelzoo voucher for brunch for 2. Staff was very nice. Had a separate voucher menu. Had a mimosas followed by the farmers omelette with croissants and bread. The omelette was one of best I've had. Filled with goat cheese, spinach and tomatoes, it was cooked to perfection and served with a side salad. The only downside was the... More

We sat at the small patio outside. The tables were squeezed tight together and the waiters had to make a real effort to walk between the tables without brushing against us. The service was very professional and attentive. We also liked that the tables had table clothes- that was a classy and welcome touch. However, we thought that the prices... More
