“Good...not great...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Noisy and jammed on a weekend night..sevice pleasant but slow, but that was fine for us, but don't expect really relaxed conversation. Tables close together and large groups of women tourists were very boisterous. Pasta dishes fairly priced but other dishes a bit on the high side. I agree with other reviewers that the food is overcooked and that clams and mussles are tiny. Ordered a drink with light ice and it came almost total ice and watered down to no taste at all. And was charged $14, two dollars over the menu price for it, which was corrected. Except the drink was terrible and not corrected. Sometimes you wonder how many times this is a real mistake or just something restaurants hope is overlooked. One of those places I will probably try again on a weekday.

“Good lunch great price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch at Pappardella and it was,good, but not great. The price was great for NYC. We had a Prix Fix lunch for $15.95, which included an appetizer, entree and dessert and ended up taking some home. The food, service and atmosphere were fine, but nothing to get excited about. We'll probably go back when we want a quick lunch on the upper west side, close to where we stay.

“Nice Italian restaurant on Upper West Side”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I found the Pappardella while walking on Columbus a Saturday afternoon. I had a vegetable panino and a glass of red wine, both were excellent, delicious and a good value. This is one of those small neighborhood restaurants that often surprise you positively in Manhattan. I sat at an outside table, the autumn weather was perfect. I recommend this restaurant if you happen to be in one of the museums or hotels nearby.
