Good food, mediocre service

We were visiting the Museum of Natural History and decided to just walk along Columbus Ave and find some where to eat lunch. After passing on a few places, we came upon Papperdella and it looked good, no wait. There were three adults, one teenager and one 2-yr old in our party. The hostess was nice... read more

My wife and I have been here several times. Each time we go, we're amazed at how we've forgotten how much we love the food since the previous time. So much flavour. Reasonable prices. Yum!

This picnic lunch that was prepared and packaged by Pappardella was fabulous. We purchased it the night before online and picked it up at the restaurant at the specified time the next day. It was so good. Not only was it good, but the food was plentiful...2 delicous sandwiches, antipasti, pesto pasta salad, almond biscottis, lemon bars, 2 bottles of... More

We only had 4 full days in New York and it was our day to visit Central Park. Everyone had told us we should visit Tavern on the Green for lunch, but since they required reservations, we decided to "wing it" and look for a restaurant near the Strawberry Fields section of the park just before we entered. We were... More

The hostess was extremely rude and gave us dirty looks when we asked simple questions relating to food allergies. This totally ruined our meal. If it were the first time this happened, it would be one thing, but it's the third time we went there, and each time she was just as rude.

My wife loves Italian food but I have a gluten allergy which makes eating at Italian restaurants a challenge. So when I read positive gluten free reviews on this and other sites, we had high hopes and expectations. Only to be ruined by bland food and a server who told us our food was fine and we were wrong.

Pappardella on 75th and Columbus offers a perfect and delicious picnic lunch! I found the deal on travelzoo for $39. This picture perfect lunch consisted of 2 full size sandwiches of tomato, mozzarella and prosciutto; an antipasto of olives, provolone, roasted red peppers, salami, blue cheese, goat cheese; a pesto pasta salad. Then for dessert 2 lemon bars and biscotti.... More

Both the food and service were fantastic. We purchased a prix fixe dinner through Living Social, which meant we were presented with a specific menu and we were not disappointed as there were plenty of choices. We started with a basket of delicious warm bread that was brought promptly to our table. We decided to share two appetizers, a caprese... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
