Pappardella restaurant brings to you the flavors and food of Tuscany. Established in 1983, Pappardella offers a romantic setting of timeless charm with 20 foot ceilings, French doors & a stunning mural of Florence. Menu and service reflect the warmth and attention of the old world, as well as the diversity and techniques of today. we feature homemade pasta, artisanal pizza & other great Italian staples, like chicken parmagian, grilled branzino & scrumptious tiramisu. A beautiful outdoor terrace makes for great people watching in the warm months. Pappardella is conveniently located near the beacon theater, the museum of natural history & Central Park offering lunch & dinner pre fix, brunch & a busy happy hour.

"I'm only in NYC a half-dozen times a year, but I visit Papadella regularly when I'm on the Upper West Side. The food is good, the service fast and friendly the prices reasonable. And altho it's right on Columbus, it has a real neighborhood feel and it's priced much less than some others nearby. Recently I noticed that they have been in business for 30+ years. Good for them. Keep up the good work."

"always consistent. and even the small portion of veal parm is plenty. I come here every other month or so because the food is great and the wine list changes regularly and I'm always finding something new"

What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

"we visited on a Saturday night at 6 PM and it was easier to count the tables WITHOUT children. Nonetheless, to a one, they were well-behaved and altho they could be seen - and heard - it was not distracting. The beauty of a place like NYAJ is that it's better than common pub food but consistently consistent. This is the 3rd location we've visited and while never having been knocked out, have always been pleased. Tho one minor nit from our Saturday night visit while I enjoyed my choose-your-own-toppings thin-crust pizza, I received red onion altho having specified white onions three times to the server."

"We eat here fairly often and this is the first time the service was not up-to-par. The food was terrific as usual, my shrimp with pasta with fried zucchini sticks was delicious. However, the amount of attention was lacking and the wait between order and delivery, then the wait between completion and presentation of the bill was longer than we've become accustomed. It won't stop us from returning but it's notable as it's different than most of our experiences here which is usually fine."

Gina la Fornarina is an authentic Italian restaurant featuring specialty pizza and a thin and crispy focaccias filled with delicious ingredients mostly imported from Italy, and when it is possible, organic.<br />Pasta from all regions of Italy and delicious salads are a big part of our menu, but do not forget our daily specials, where we feature delicious fish and seasonal ingredients in our recipes<br />We have a liquor bar and great wines; make sure you try our antipasto platter with a bottle of wine or a carafe of our famous Sangria di Capri made with crispy pinot grigio and fresh fruit. We are always looking for the best quality & value so that we can offer our customers great products at the best price in a very welcoming ambiance.<br><br><br />We would love to help you celebrate your next event: at Gina we offer great party at a very smart rate.

"We had a very nice meal at Gina La Fornarina. Service is quick and efficient. Terrific veal-and-beef meatballs. But next time I will be sure to order the home-made pasta. I had a sample and it was also terrific. Wine list is nothing special, but you aren't paying an arm and a leg either.
And do use OpenTable as this place fills up quickly around dinner time.
