5 visits and always good. It's bigger than it looks with two spaces downstairs but very popular so book. Decor is nothing to write home about but it is cosy. Avoid the internal room downstairs - it feels like a corridor and is noisy. The owner/manager is charming and gives good advice - for once it is real advice and... More

Although we had booked in advance and had our booking confirmed, there wasn't a table laid for us on arrival. However the staff soon joined tables together and set us up. There is a wide choice on the menu and the food arrives very quickly considering how busy they are. The food is very homely and delicious. Main courses are... More

Visiting London I and my friends stopped for dinner at the pappardella. I took ravioli and salmon, one of my friends spaghetti and tomatoes and the other pizza. Everything was excellent. Do not spend too much you can eat great Italian food. The service was very good and a special thanks to Filippo,kind and very nice guy.

La Pappardella is clearly a very popular restaurant. Went down for dinner (without reservation) on a Tuesday night and all tables were booked. Staff was very friendly and could manage to give a table downstairs after some waiting. The pasta I ordered was very good, prices are OK, friendly service ... what more do you need to enjoy a quick... More

Not sure why this restaurant is receiving such rave reviews, as the food is nothing special. I've genuinely had better from Italian chain restaurants. Huge portions but not necessarily great quality. Tried the Pappardelle Al Ragu'D'Agnello, Pollo E Peperoni with the garlic and tomato pizza bread and foccacia rustica and was very disappointed all round.

This was a random walk in, but boy o boy was I shocked outta my boots!! (In a very good way😁). It's about a 10-15 mins walk from Earl's Court station. I have always loved Italian food, but it's very rare that the food that u get in restaurants hit the right notes. But I am happy to say that... More

Want to give the full 5 but can't. Food was great and staff were friendly, but it simply took too long to get seated. Fair enough it was a busy night and we hadn't booked but a simple acknowledgment of our being there and a rough indication of wait would have been appreciated. However all was saved by lovely food...

Enjoyed a great meal here and was impressed with the quality of the food and wine which were reasonably priced for this part of London.

We decided to eat at La Pappardella after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The food was devine. The portions were large and fresh. The side order of spicy mushrooms was my favourite. Delicious. Good service. Nice venue.
