Founded by Bianca Cangelosi Bavand, Da Bianca was a dream come true for the Sicilian native. 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. Daughter Marjan Bavand Dunn continues the family legacy of welcoming our neighbors, as they celebrate milestones, meet friends and share family dinners.

I always order the linguine and clams. The bread they serve while we await the meal is delicious. We often run into neighborhood friends so it's very nice to have such a high level local spot.

Our neighbors joined us for dinner. We are still friends. There should be none of the concerns one often has about suggesting a restaurant. This place is swell. My wife said it was one of the best meals in a long time This spoke to the quality of the food and not the COVID quarantine. The wine list included a Primotivo that everyone enjoyed. Every outing with your friends makes a meal better but I think my wife would have said the same thing if it was only me with her. Da Blanca Trattoria was that good

This is a wonderful local restaurant. There are few with such a following. It was our 20 year anniversary and this is where we spend most of our special occasions. I was, however, surprised to find that I could again get a Wednesday reservation. Wednesdays, they allow a $20 corkage and typically there are standing reservations and you just can’t get in. I guess Covid has probably slow business a little bit… But the food is still spectacular. Very highly recommended.

Went to commemorate what was our 45th anniversary. We used to dine there often when we lived in Trabuco Canyon. The service was wonderful and respectful. Food was as good as I remembered it being 29 years ago.

Amazing appetizers! We loved the calamari! Perfectly crispy, but still tender! The cannelloni is a family favorite! We really enjoyed sitting outside and hope that outside dining continues.

Too Many times reviews particularly non chain restaurants are inflated and generated by friends and family of the restaurant owners. I can assure you, I not only have no connection , but never heard of Da BIANCA. I read the glowing reviews and not living in the area "took a chance" . To put it simply - glad I did and recommend any one wanting excellent Italian food, a well trained staff providing top notch service, to also "take a chance". I suggest you read the reviews to add to mine. I will add , the Italian style is very east coast(sweeter thicker red sauces and attention to meat tenderizstion). The missing 5th star is because it is lacking ambiance, being in the back of small shopping center.

Recommended by a friend and we absolutely loved. The food was amazing. I would suggest to get specials you wont regret it. Staff was really friendly the outdoor area was really nice even though it definitely isn't regular hopefully they will keep some of it. Wine was great wondering though if they do a corkage fee when you bring your own or not. Highly recommend and already talking about bringing more people the next time we go!
