“Really good Italian food served by great staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here twice in one week that's how good it was! Authentic Italian food well cooked with good ingredient. The specials are great with homemade pasta and the homemade cheesecake is super. The staff are friendly and welcoming both times we went it was very busy which added to the lovely atmosphere. I would defiantly recommend a visit.

“Great food, lovely staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Yesterday we had diner at la Pappardella with a group of 6. On this january monday evening the restaurant was full. I can understand why: great food: fresh, plentifull and tasty, with nice and very affordable housewine. Very nice staff, really Italian. They even split up the bill in 4 separate ones. Very relaxing atmosphere, all guests seamed to enjoy themselves and noise levels rose because of all the conversations.

“Excellent italian at a good price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

This cozy italian restaurant serves wonderful italian food. The restaurant is very simple and looks just like any other italian restaurant from the outside. The difference is really hidden within. I wouldn't have just walked inside unless my friends had taken me there. Now Im happy ive been, the quality is excellent and the food is nicely layed out.
Big pizzas and wonderful pasta dishes. But most importantly at a great value. 11 pounds a large pizza is in order here.

The service is good and well timed.

Definately recommend it for anyone who just wants a great, well valued, dinner.

“Real Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

I was there because I was intrigued by some contrasting reviews, even if latest reviews from Italians were really good. The atmosphere is great, staff is Italian and caring of you even in a packed restaurant. Food excellent. My penne with broccoli and sausages were cooked to perfection, even if the sauce was a little too rich for an Italian taste (but you must understand you are in London ). However, the taste was excellent. My lamb chops were cooked to perfection, and presented in an high level restaurant style. Price is not cheap, but worth the overall experience.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

A couple of friends and I were looking for a decent Italian restaurant/pizzeria in central London to fulfill distance-from-each-other gap because of living in a metropolis. Pretty close to Earl's Court tube station, we ended up trying "La Pappardella" and our search is pretty much over. As an Italian I can certainly certify this as an authentic Italian restaurant, very good choice and great quality of food. Excellent service provided by young and smiley waiters, it definitely feels like "going our for a pizza" in Italy. You'll probably find me there every week or so.
