Italian restaurant in the centre of Valencia
La Pappardella is the perfect venue for a gastronomic tour of the very best Italian dishes, and it’s just a stone’s throw from the Plaza de la Reina square. We are passionate about pasta, so much so that it has become our signature dish. To give you an idea, our a la carte menu includes 18 different pasta specialities! But let’s take you back to the start, which is where our passion for this wickedly delicious pasta began. It has been loved by diners since 1997. The secret to our success is the use of artisan milled flour from Italy to make our stuffed freshly homemade pasta, as well as “fior di latte” mozzarella from the Campania region. Out tomatoes are also top quality, such as the exquisite San Marzano, especially grown to give sauces and appetizers that exquisite taste.
As soon as you walk through the doors of La Pappardella, you are struck by the relaxing atmosphere, feeling yourself transported to a place where the pleasure of eating freshly homemade pasta reigns supreme. Come and savour the delights of our Italian cuisine just a stone’s throw from the Plaza del Ayuntamiento square in the centre of Valencia at our restaurant and terrace. It is an airy and safe restaurant, where we have adopted all necessary safety measures (we disinfect everything, and we mean everything after each shift). This means that your only concern is having enough room for one of our delicious homemade desserts after sampling our mouth-watering pastas.
Late afternoon bites in downtown Valencia
If you’re looking for a relaxed atmosphere, somewhere to while away a late afternoon with friends, then look no further than La Pappardella. It’s chic, contemporary, pleasant, out of the ordinary, and is head and shoulders above standard Italian restaurants. Start with one of our hot or cold appetisers or starters to whet the appetite, such as freshly made tuna tartare or a cured ham and mushroom croquette. Vegetarian options are also available, and we take great care to look after your well-being, which is why the menu clearly indicates if there are any allergens in each dish.
Our piadina warrants special attention, a distinctive Italian flatbread that makes the perfect accompaniment to any dish. Lightly crispy on the outside, and wonderfully soft on the inside. You’ll love it. With vegetables, or mozzarella, rocket, serrano ham, crispy pancetta, cured sausage, provolone cheese, fresh tomato in addition to other tasty ingredients. In short, our restaurant is worth a visit. If you are looking for something less filling, you really must try one of our delicious salads. From a vegetarian goat’s cheese salad to a Kikka with crispy pan-fried chicken with a dried fruit crumble as well as other exquisite ingredients.
Start the drum roll, because now it’s time for our main attraction, the pasta! Ripiene or stuffed pasta, is an Italian vice that you will get hooked on. The stuffed pasta is 100% homemade; made fresh each day. Stuffed ravioli with prawns in garlic butter and brandy, or a filling of cottage cheese, spinach and ham with gorgonzola cheese and nuts you’ll truly relish! And you’ll also discover where the restaurant gets its name, La Pappardella, an egg pasta made from Belli, in Foligno in the Perugia region. And you definitely mustn’t leave our Italian restaurant in Valencia without trying Pappardelle del Levriero, a wonderful recipe from Aurelia, the mother of one of our founding partners. It is truly heavenly! Try our pasta dishes with our grandmother-style ragout sauce, or with sausages or porcini mushrooms, with red pepper, with crispy pancetta, pine nuts and basil. It’s beginning to make your mouth water, right? Yet we’ve only just got started!!

In addition to our wide selection of pasta dishes – we’ve hardly mentioned any at all – if you have a hankering for meat, you won’t be disappointed: whether it’s a mature beef tenderloin with chips or one of our unforgettable burgers. La Finca beef, cheddar cheese and Iberian bacon, delicious!
And last but not least, a wonderful homemade dessert. You really must leave some room for the sweet finale to our menu! For example, our magnificent cheesecake, Oreo cake – with pure cocoa – or the Mocaccino, that is so light, you’ll be flying in the clouds, the unmissable and one-of-a-kind Panna Cotta or our splendidly over-indulgent Tiramisu.
