Her inspiration and the secret to the restaurant's continued success is serving simple food using only the freshest ingredients-- just like the food she served her family.

The best Italian food in Orange County by a mile and a small, family run restaurant.

Love Da Bianca Trattoria. It 's my favorite Italian restaurant. Service is always perfect and the food epic. I am always able to take half of my meal home for leftovers and enjoyment later. This time I took my grandson and we had a wonderful visit. He ate all his food and had nothing to take home.

Service and food was excellent as always. It is a great locals restaurant which has always provided a variety of delicious dishes and specials and their garlic bread is the best. The owner checks to make sure everyone is happy with their meals and the servers and the chefs do a tremendous job.

We were warmly greeted by the owner. We had been there before and she remembered our names. The dishes were ordered were the best of each we ever had. And the service was incredible. We can't wait to go back.

I found this restaurant about a month ago from a recommendation from our hotel in garden grove. It’s only about a 20 min ride from the hotel and IS SO WORTH IT! The food is absolutely outstanding and the service is spot on. The owner is an amazing Sicilian lady and a complete doll. We have been back here several times and I give it 2 big 👍🏽 up

We really enjoyed this restaurant and think we have found a new favorite. Every thing we ordered was excellent from the bruschetta, tomato, cucumber and onion salad, to simply delicious chicken piccata, veggies and pasta. My friends also enjoyed the spaghetti carbonara- it was awesome! Great wine! Great service too! It’s a hidden gem!

Food was very good as usual, but service was very slow. Everything took a long time and our server did not check on us often despite the wait. We eat here often and were there to celebrate our son's Birthday so the poor service was disappointing. But the food was delicious once it arrived!

I noticed the cooking from the different dishes we ordered had changed a bit or they changed a chef, a simple one I always order was bolognese, I don't eat lamb, the ground meat tasted gamy; chicken inside cannoli was cut too large and made it dry; fish on the Special menu smelled and tasted fishy..etc. Hope they improve, I love that restaurant, I have been going there since the mother was alive!

We had a Sunday night dinner there with our son and son-in-law. The food, ambience and service were all excellent as usual. We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. It’s the perfect neighborhood trattoria.

We've heard about Da Bianca for a while and have lived in the area for a very long time. Don't know why it took so long to go but we were very happy we went there and will be going back.

The food and service are outstanding. The noise level is at times annoying because there is little to absorb sound. It's a little difficult to find in the strip center where it is located but this is truly a treasure worth hunting for.

We were introduced to Da Bianca by friends and it had been a while since we had eaten there. We finally made it back and were reminded what a great local gem of a restaurant it is. The ambiance is perfect for a “nicer” casual dining experience. The food was well prepared, the service just right, and the hostess/owner was absolutely personable and genuinely interested in making sure we enjoyed our experience. This is going to become a “regular” on our list for a variety of occasions.
