Pappardella's chefs craft classic Italian fare within a Tuscan-inspired setting. Dining duos can nosh on Tuscan-styled brunch or lunch fare, choosing a pair of classic brunch entrees from a selection of five during weekend excursions or choosing their adventure from a lunch menu including sandwich, pizza, and house-made pasta options. With a large mural of Florence and 20-foot-ceilings enhancing the interior, Pappardella ensconces diners in the aesthetic influences of northern Italy. Pairs can also eat on the outdoor terrace for ample people-watching and meatball-juggling opportunities, all the while contemplating jaunts to the nearby Beacon Theatre, American Museum of Natural History, and Central Park.


Pappardella is just a short walk from Central Park, but it feels like an authentic Italian trattoria. Inside, a colorful mural of Florence sprawls across the walls. The menu sticks to traditional Italian cuisine, using homemade sauces and pastas to craft entrees such as rigatoni bolognese and linguine with roasted Brussels sprouts. Alternatively, diners can sample seared wild king salmon or pollo milanese made with free-range chicken. Pair entrees with a wine bottled directly from a wine river in Italy, or wrap up dinner with a dulcet tiramisu.

The food is always really good. The manager was less than gracious about my using an expired voucher but we worked it out. I've done their picnic and it's awesome!

The food was very good and it was cute that they even included drinks and picnic cloth! However maybe it would have been nice to know what the different courses included in advance because nobody ate the antipasto appetizer and I felt t was a waste, better if we could have selected something we knew we liked.

This is a well thought of idea for the warm summer days. It has everything ( disposable) you will need including some amazing sandwiches and snacks. A great gift for the young generation that knows little about picnics and being frugal :)
