Great service food was awesome services
Always great! Our local go-to place
Great find! The wait staff and owner were very attentive! They have great gluten free selections, even pasta. The food was delicious! We would highly recommend!
Bar tender was a bit on the slow side. However, the bar was really crowded. Maybe have 2 on a Friday night. Food and service were excellent.
Went with a group of friends and we had a great time! The appetizers were as good as anything you’d get in a fancy city restaurant- the ricotta toast and Brussels were amazing! Delicious pastas, great drinks and wine. And surprisingly reasonable for such a great meal!
Everything we ate was fresh and delicious. Nice wine and drink menu, great atmosphere and arrive early too. Will definitely return!
Absolutely would recommend LaPadella! My only suggestion would have appetizer a little hotter. Had Brussel sprouts with crab and was delicious. Dinner of halibut was equally as delicious. Server was a delight!!
Love this local! Chef invents remarkable dishes. Nick has created a local hang out space with great food. Calamari may be the best I’ve eaten anywhere- and I’m a global traveler.
No one has succeeded in this space before but they broke it open.
The specials really are. And the basic menu is solid.
Go. Relax. Enjoy. It’s very nice food.
We always enjoy coming here. Their staff is very prompt, friendly and professional.
The food is always very good.
Nick has a class A restaurant! The food was excellent, our waiter, Tyler was wonderful. The atmosphere was perfect. Love it when the owner stops by the table to see how everything is! Will definitely go back!
Food was pretty good, server was a little off but his co-workers filled in the gaps. Overall good experience.
The meatball over pollenta appetizer was wonderful!!! The chicken pasta entree was not so good. The cream sauce seemed to be just cream poured over the pasta and the chicken did not taste fresh.
Nick is so welcoming! You feel like you are eating in his home. The food is delicious, the service was great, and it is a good value.
Great food, full menu, pleasing & comfy vibe. Something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a wine bar, a full well done restaurant that kids to dates will enjoy, or anything in between. Nice find.
I love La Padella! It has amazing food, great atmosphere. It feels like home every time I am there. Nick does an amazing job!
Excellent food, excellent service , excellent ambiance🍸🍷
Good value good food
The service was wonderful and the food delicious. The only disappointment was the desserts.
My husband and I had a lovely meal at la Padella for our anniversary. It was our first time here. The service was excellent and the food was very good. It's small and relatively quiet so perfect to have a nice conversation over our meal.
Mark was a very good server. Great cocktails. Scallops and salmon both delicious choices.
Wonderful overall experience. Amazing food, excellent service (even included a complimentary sorbet which was delicious!) for my boyfriend’s birthday. Will definitely be back!
The food is excellent, home made. The meatballs and the antipasto are one of a kind. Service professional and courteous yet feels like family. The owner interacts with customers, rare thing these days. I highly recommend this restaurant and will frequently dine here!
We had a wonderful dinner. You get a sense of coming home when you walk in the door. The staff are friendly and helpful. Very welcoming and the food was delicious. We'll definitely be back.
Outstanding food. Must try the spicy Garlic muscles. It comes with delicious garlic Crostini for dipping! Yum.
This is a great place! Highly recommend! The best Italian restaurant in Media!
Broccoli Arab and escarole undercooked. Chicken overcooked.
The high noise level was unpleasant. We know the young crowd loves the din, and all the good restaurants we go to seem loud to us oldsters.
The food wasn’t good and the deserts not fresh. The service was excellent.
It is a very cute restaurant and the atmosphere is nice. Not impressed by the wait staff. Food was just OK. My try again because I thought the restaurant was cute but the food was certainly not a draw.
If you have not visited La Paella than put it at the top of your list! It is fantastic! I cannot say enough great things about the food...phenomenal! The service is excellent! The owner, Nick, is such a nice man. If you need anything whether it is a suggestion on the menu or what type of wine to try, he will bend over backwards...literally :)! Please make La Paella a favorite of yours as it is a favorite mine forever!
Consistently delivers on excellent food and service.
Great little neighborhood gem, with great food and impressive wine list.
We found out, at the end of our meal, that it was the first night for our server, Chris. We never would have known! The service was great. Our food was delicious and a perfect temperature. The owner was present and acknowledged the patrons. We look forward to going back again soon!
We had a weekday lunch for four. Food was excellent (try the roasted Brussels sprouts and the homemade meatballs). Host was friendly and helpful. Good wines by the glass. Casual, easy parking behind the restaurant. Easy and quick commute from NJ.
Great food! Huge portions.
The service was great and the food delicious. The noise level was low enough that we heard a political discussion at a table 4 or 5 tables away that we could have avoided. I would recommend La Padela to anyone in the Media PA area.
The room was very noisy which made it difficult to hear our companions
I told the waiter that I can’t eat hot peppers - I asked him if peppadew peppers are hot. He told me that they are sweet. He gave me the wrong information and it took a while for my tongue to quiet down.
The food was delicious otherwise.
Wonderful food, great portions
