We made a reservation at this cozy place on a cold, rainy Memorial Day weekend Saturday. My husband, daughters and I were in town for the day and met up with our friends and their son and another visiting out-of-stater. We were seated immediately and our server was sweet, friendly and attentive. The bread was deliciously chewy, and our drinks and appetizer were delivered quickly. All of the kids ordered pizza, which was thoughtfully cut into small pieces and was gobbled up quickly, which is a miracle considering how picky our kids can be! The adults had both pizza and pasta and they were very good as well. We finished up with some generous servings of super-creamy gelato, chocolate lava cake, and coffee and were on our way. The restaurant is a loud space, but we didn't mind, as we didn't want to have to shush our children every five minutes. We enjoyed our meal, the prices were reasonable (by Manhattan standards), and I would definitely recommend Pappardella.
