WELCOME TO PAPPARDELLE
Ristorante Pappardelle was opened in November 1988 by Bruno and Clive Mina as a small, family run Italian restaurant, a family whose roots are in the Veneto in north east Italy.
Although the experience of dining out has changed greatly over almost 30 years, the core values that define Pappardelle and fine Italian cuisine in particular remain unchanged; freshness, quality, simplicity and style.
In 2010 the Osteria opened on the ground floor. Perfectly complimenting the Ristorante upstairs, the Osteria offers a more informal style of food at pace, but with the same emphasis on quality and style. It also boasts a well stocked bar with the largest wine list in Arundel, and the most extensive grappa selection outside London.
Shortly afterwards Bruno and Clive were joined by Emma, Clive’s wife and Osteria ’Boss’, and upstairs Gianmarco is the face of the Ristorante. They, together with all the team at Pappardelle look forward to welcoming you, whatever your appetite.
‘…cose semplici fatte bene….’ (Simple things done well)
*Pronounced ‘Ostereea’ ([oste’ria])
‘L’osteria: from the Latin “hospes” meaning “guest”. A public place which served drinks; traditionally wine.
The emphasis in the Osteria is on simple, fresh food served with style and professionalism. The character of the dining room/bar changes through the day; breakfast is 9-12, lunch 12-3, though food is still available up until 6pm when the evening menu proper begins. These menus represent the perfect balance between choice, quality, and convenience. We are especially proud of our Eggs Benedict (Breakfast), Gourmet burgers (Lunch), and new Cichetti menu. (Evening).
Osteria is open all day, seven days a week for whatever takes your fancy, come in and say ‘ciao!’
THE OSTERIA BAR
The Osteria bar has a predominantly italian wine list of over 50 bottles, most of which available by the glass. A good selection of Cocktails, Champagnes, Proseccos, Gins, whiskies, Grappas, Artisan Italian beer and draught Peroni also figure. Click here to download our current list.
Arriving soon are five beers by Arundel Brewery and Langhams Brewery near Petworth. Our current favourites are Lucky Swallow lager by Arundel Brewery, or if you fancy something with more body, Reale IPA from Birra del Borgo.

‘…Arundel’s premier Italian restaurant….’
The Ristorante menus are built on seasonality and innovation, turning classic flavours into something entirely new.
We only use top-quality British/Italian ingredients and look to support local and Artisan producers wherever possible.
In the summer of 2017, the Ristorante menu evolved into a more streamlined 2 page selection:
Has a two-fold meaning here. the best of menus we have served in almost 30 years of business, our ‘classics’ if you like, furthermore they are also likely to be based upon the more familiar classics of Italian cuisine.
This is where the chefs ‘upstairs’ get creative! Changing completely every 2 months, we look at classical Italian cuisine in a more contemporary light, and attempt to bring it to a seasonal focal point.
Whether it’s the reassurance of our classics or you’re in the mood for something more adventurous, then you’ll find something to satisfy.
Reservations are taken and confirmed in person or by telephone. Enquiries can also be made by email. Parties of 8 or more will require a small refundable deposit of £50 to confirm. Call 01903 882025 or click here to email us.
