The atmosphere is wonderful, very classy. The gluten-free options are great. Many GF pasta dishes and pizzas as well. Very tasty! Even GF desserts such as gelato and chocolate cake. The staff is nice and personable.

We were invited to this restaurant for a birthday dinner. The table we reserved was ready for us when we got there and we found the decor warm and inviting. We ordered the large appetizer sampler, which was "chef's choice" and varies from evening to evening. It was a fun (and economical) way to begin the meal but the small... More

After having visited the Public Library we were starving and we started to walk and we found this restaurant. We ordered the gnocchi. They were perfect. We loved that place. Restrooms were very clean and comfortable.

We went on the word of a gluten free blogger, and we were not disappointed. The gluten free garlic bread is oustanding (I'm not the gluten free one), and the pasta good. It's a small trattoria and reservations are recommended. I had a spaghetti dish with roasted brussels sprouts, garlic and broccolini. Very good. The house montepulciano was very good... More

No complaints about this Italian Restaurant. The food is excellent, the service is fine, the menu is varied from pasta and pizza to salads and fish. The prices are ok for Columbus Ave and NYC in general. It's a good neighborhood place, Tourists won't be disappointed.

Wife is gluten free so it can be hard to find good places to eat. Pappardella was an excellent choice. It's a short walk from Museum of Natural History or NY Historical Society Museum. We had a late lunch around 2pm and the food was excellent. Wife had sandwhich on gluten free ciabatta buns and said it was excellent. I... More

Nice place, cozy and charming. Excellent and rich food. The raviolis with lobster are the king of the rest. Definitely I want to come back.

I rated this restaurant as poor because of the almost-hostile waiter. Had he, and others, been pleasant and welcoming, I would have rated this establishment as average. We passed Pappardella a few months ago when people were seated outside and the place looked charming. When it came time to make plans for lunch after the parade, I made a reservation... More

This is a very good, neighborhood Italian restaurant in the upper west side of Manhattan. They have a terrific selection of food on the menu, including an entire gluten free menu. The only downside about the restaurant is the slow service, but if that is due to the focus put on each meal then it is worth it.
