We have eaten here before with good service and excellent food. Our recent experience was quite different. We showed up for a 6:30 reservation and were told it would be 15 minutes. After 20 minutes, the hostess said they would provide us with a wine tasting at the bar because our wait was now nearing 30 minutes and would be... More

I'll preface by saying that my family loves this place. We came here for my college graduation once upon a time, when my grandmother was pre-dementia and could travel, and this is where over dinner my mother met by now-husband five years ago. We have loved coming here until last night. My parents and I were having dinner with my... More

While sidewalk tables are enticing, step instead out of the bustle of Columbus Avenue into the Old World charm of this Italian bistro with a handsome bar, white tablecloths, tin ceiling & dark wood walls covered w/ old photos of Italy. The Italian family dining & talking happily a few tables away confirmed our choice & coupled w/ cordial efficient... More

We purchased their picnic basket which included prosciutto sandwiches and vegetable sandwiches. Mozzerella and Tomatoes and great italian bread. Dessert was lemon bars and Biscotti. Bottles of water. We purchased these baskets thru Groupon. It was really great, a definite must since they are a block away from central park.

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
