We ordered the evening's "special" dish, pasta with calamari, and a salad, requesting both to be served at the same time. The salad was served first, and a glitch in service followed - a very long wait, and a reminder to the staff was needed before the main course appeared. When it came this was pretty ordinary, with somewhat chewy... More

Bought the picnic basket and were very pleased. Everything was as advertised. Now that the Mayor is allowing "vino" in the park. We took some with us. It was a great experience. Would recommend but with a Living Social coupon.

We found this place via tripadvisor and we found what we were looking for. A cosy place with a nice atmosphere, good wine list and italian traditional dishes well made. Worth a visit!

We got our picnic meal on Friday and were pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food was excellent, we loved the paninis, the pasta and the lemon desserts! Attention was superb. Thank you Pappardella, for being part of such a unique experience.

I nipped in for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. Fresh ingredients, simple menu and wine list and friendly service. The prices are good for what you get.

Excited to get to the restaurant, picked up our picnic meal and headed to Central Park. Upon opening the bag, we were disappointed in the meal provided. The menu says panini, but really it is a sandwich on a hard cold baguette. There was no mineral water provided but just 2 regular bottled waters. The lemon bars were over cooked... More

Point of view: Family with 3 members who have celiac. There is a great Italian restaurant on every corner of NYC. Many of them ever serve gluten free options. But Papparadella has made a true commitment to serving the gluten free community. They do this by offering gluten free options across the board, and clearly marking them. Most importantly ,... More

Visited this restaurant during our stay in New York and it was a very nice meal. It was chucking it down with rain outside so it was a relief to get inside and sit down. The food tasted fresh and they were of decent size portions. The waiting staff were friendly but the only negative thing about this restaurant was... More

Pappardella was a great restaurant to get a delicious dessert at! The torta di cioccolato and the zabaione con fragole fresche are very delicious! We went there at 10:30 pm and got a late night dessert. I would definitely try dinner here another time!
