Italian
Located in NoMad and Midtown, La Pecora Bianca, which means "the white sheep" in Italian, offers a relaxed, all-day dining experience and vibrant Italian fare in a beautiful setting. We take Italian food back to its roots as an inherently local and seasonal cuisine with an approachable menu emphasizing vegetables and house-made pastas. True to Italian tradition, we source food from our local bounty whenever we can and let the ingredients shine in every dish. Our pastas, including our signature gramigna with sausage and broccolini and tagliatelle with beef and pork bolognese, are all made with local, organic grains. Our produce and meats are often sourced from the Hudson Valley & surrounding farm areas. Our extensive selection of spritzes and negronis are made with Italian amari, inspired by the tradition of aperitivi. La Pecora Bianca is open for breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner, so we've designed our restaurants to allow for the seamless transition from day to night.

We went on a holiday with a prix fixe menu, but we will definitely be coming back again. The steak, vegetables, dessert, and sides were all perfect. We were also very impressed with their cocktails. I loved their Bianco Negroni.

It is a fantastic place for date, the environment of the restaurant is smooth and comfortable. The light turn from light to a little darker, which is perfect because I went there for dinner and the darker light give the area a sense of nighttime. The service is great, they did took a good care of my feeling. The price of the food is average, unless you went there when it is a special day like Valentine’s Day. The price will get a bit higher for those days. Last by not least, me and my girlfriend enjoyed the food a lot, especially the Nutella tart was one of my favorite because the sweetness was on point. With all those advantages, it will a nice restaurant that I would like to go for the second time

We had a reservation but had to wait 45 minutes or so for a table. Handled it well with two wry gracious apologies and one round of drinks. Would have been really bad if we hadn’t been with friends and catching up tho. Unfortunately have to say that.

We had the ricotta appetizer which really wasn't that special, it only came with two small slices of bread, so we asked for more but the bread that they brought next was clearly not fresh and didn't task that good. The pasta we had were really Good though. The service was fine but we got interrupted a lot of times making it feel like they were trying to rush us out which is not what you want on a date night.

Food was okay and service was terrible. Our server disappeared after taking our order never to be seen again. No one came to check-in on us until I requested the check from another server. It’s a beautiful restaurant but will not be coming back.

La Pecora Bianca is a local favorite in the neighborhood. My office is in the area and I absolutely love picking up a quick morning coffee and snack. I’ve had lunch a few times and numerous breakfasts. This was my first time having dinner; my team and I were so excited because we finally found a night that works for us all — and it happened to be during restaurant week!

We arrived a bit early but the restaurant was fairly empty and we were brought to our table immediately. Our host was pleasant, our waiter was great and the food was delicious!

We were sat for about 34-40 minutes when a hostess came to our table to ask if we cared for dessert or coffee — this only a few minutes after our entree was cleared. We politely replied we had ordered our dessert and wouldn’t be needing coffee but thank you nonetheless. She replied okay and grabbed our waiters attention and told him to wrap us up. We were all taken aback... we had just finished our meal and were looking forward to dessert and we weren’t sat for over 45 minutes at this point. Our dessert came immediately after the interaction. We were all extremely disappointed and completely shocked that we were practically being forced out of the restaurant. We quickly ate our dessert and got the check.

A three course meal, completed in under an hour. If they needed our table, we would’ve gladly sped up the process. However, it was handled inappropriately and left an unsavory feeling with the entire experience. It’s unfortunate because I adore this spot and now... I don’t know if I’ll make it back for a second attempt.

The restaurant is energetic and attractive, with excellent service and good food. I had meatballs as an appetizer, and they were very tender and tasty. the chicken with farro was very flavorful, and the desserts were luscious.

Management was terrific in helping sort out our situation. We had wanted a larger table as some of our guests were fuller in size and we were a bit squished around a small round. They compensated with wine and Our server was absolutely superb. The noise level is a challenge, especially as we had some older guests who found it difficult to hear properly. I'm not sure why some sound absorbing baffles cannot be added to the walls or ceiling! All those hard surfaces are challenging!

Great food and wine - awesome service.

It was very crowded on a rainy Monday night. We were a party of 4 and experienced a tight squeeze since tables are small overall. But food was good and made up for the coziness. My boneless dark meat chicken was very tender and the skin was crispy. The Nutella tart was delicious. I cleared every dish. Since it was crowded so noise level was high but we had a good time. I recommend it.

Service was incredibly rushed. Main course was delivered almost immediately after the starter which I asked them to remove. Then the staff hovered around. Very uncomfortable and disappointing. Food was OK However nothing special. The winter negroni was good.

Unlimited brunch drinks were great!
Quality of food varied —the fettuccine bolognese was said to be delicious and so was my Bellini. But my decaf coffee was very strong, frittata was nothing special, and the Bloody Mary too spicy for my companion.

Service was very attentive— the waitstaff came by frequently to refill drinks but they were not intrusive. The table in the back corner was perfect for our party of 5 so that we could hear each other speak. The main seating area would have been too loud for us to carry on conversation.

Had a lovely birthday lunch on the 25th celebrating my sons 26th birthday. But, on my 'opentable' reservations, I listed as special occasion for his birthday, but nothing. But the same thing happened on the 16th celebrating my daughters birthday somewhere else. So not entirely sure the particular restaurants are to blame, or opentable reservation they received. Disappointing happened twice without two weeks. Delicious lunch nonetheless

The food is always good! Really reccomend the grimigna and the meatballs to start. Everyone was pleased with what they ate. I would say that the service is always a bit slow, at this location and up town. As long as you aren’t in a rush it’s fine!! Oh and try the Nutella tart! Insanely good!!
