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.

Sehr gutes Essen, speziell die Pasta ist empfehlenswert. Als Italiener ist es schwierig gute Pasta zu finden aber hier muss ich sagen ist es exzeptionell gut. Beim nächsten NYC werden wir sicherlich wieder vorbei kommen.

The food was amazing. My friend even commented it was the best pasta she has ever eaten. From drinks, appetizers (we got the whipped ricotta and I would order it again in a heartbeat), to entrees, everything tasted amazing. The only downside was the heat in the restaurant - maybe it was the heatwave or maybe it was because our table was so close to the kitchen. It was hot. But the food was still outstanding.

I must say that I have never been here for breakfast. It was wonderful. The Avocado Toast was served on fresh, crusty, Italian bread. The poached eggs were so soft that when you pierced them there were rivers of golden yolk. And the lemon ricotta pancakes were light and fluffy like fragranced pillows of soft clouds.

While the appetizer toast that I had was very tasty and just enough, the very small glass of ice tea, which was a glass mostly filled with ice was rather expensive and not enough to quench anyone's thirst - especially on a hot day. Also, I was having a business meeting and the waiter must have broken in more than a dozen times trying to get us to order more - annoying.

Food was delicious. Service was great and very friendly. Cauliflower dish was incredible. We came late and kitchen was closing, but they still served a great meal and no one was rushing us to leave. Tiramisu was rich and very pleasant, not too sweet.

Host would not seat two of us at 10mins to our reservation time, even though there were 3 empty tables of 2. We ended up sitting at 905pm at a table that had been open since 840pm. And, only after we went up to ask again to be seated. Bar tender and servers were absolutely amazing though and the food is always great

This was our second dining experience at Le Pecora Bianca, and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the pasta was fresh and delicious, and the beverage selection was vast and varied. This is definitely a go-to spot for us in NYC. Highly recommended.

The truffle honey and ricotta did not work at all. Classic example of chef over compensating for originality with truffles. The pesto and mushroom Campanelle was also poorly conceived as the flavor pairing proved incompatible and the pesto lacked parmigiana which gives it the salty tang and was the consistency of green foam. I don’t think the chef actually tries the food but the prime location and earlier reputation still keep the restaurant packed, despite the substandard quality of the food.

The food and drinks were delicious! And the bottomless Bellini special at brunch was a great deal! But our server was MIA for about 30 min when we were looking to get another round. I don’t know if this is a tactic to get people to drink less of the bottomless or what but it was very frustrating. We asked like 3 other people if we could get our server or another round before they came. And there were only 3 of us!

The food was interesting, fresh and delightful. Nice wines too. The service, especially for a very hectic lunch crowd, was great. Both the persons who seated you, the servers and the bus people were all very good and right on target. This restaurant is very well managed -- and pretty. Yes, it is noisy but the rest balances that out unless you're really sensitive to noise or need to have a quiet meeting.

Lovely restaurant with delicious food and an excellent wine selection. Our waiter and the manager were fantastic. The bartender seemed pretty tightly wound, but anyone could be having a moment.
The only negative I would say was the charcuterie and cheese selection was pretty underwhelming. I like that it was a small selection and not a laundry list of all things cured, but I would like to see some more interesting options.

First time taking baby out to a restaurant and using high chair (7 months old). Host was super accommodating about stroller (didn’t make me fold it, wheeled it into a back room as-is). High chair was ready and brought to table before we were seated. The place was packed at 1pm and so very LOUD, was tough for the grandparents but not unbearable. Service was fine, our server was in training and very earnest, his mentor was doing a good job teaching him. Food was solid. Better than I remember from my visits when it first opened. Would go again with the kiddo, really grateful that management and staff were so easygoing in accommodating us.

We have eaten here several times over the years - it has been reliable, good food, fun energetic atmosphere, reasonably priced for Manhattan. Good service and friendly but they do keep moving: dithering over the menu without actually asking questions prompted a ‘I’ll be right back’ as the waiter moved on to other tasks and returned a few moments later. We had fun and will be back.

The waitstaff is incredibly attentive - you barely have time to blink before a water glass is refilled or empty plates cleared before fresh plates and silverware arrive. The food was excellent and very fresh. Really authentic Italian dishes The wines were also excellent as were the Negronis to start. Fantastic place to enjoy a nice dinner out!

Hostess made me wait for my guest to arrive even though I had a reservation and the restaurant was empty at the time.
We were rushed from the second we sat down.
Our food came seconds after ordering it. The staff hovered, removing drinks and food before we finished.
They clearly wanted to move the tables and weren’t coy about doing so.
We had to ask for a dessert menu. The server looked bummed about that.
The manager and hostess were walking around checking each table to see who would be done soon.
It was a horrible experience. The food was okay but the feeling of being pushed out ruined the whole experience. We will not go back!!!

We had an 8:15pm reservation. Our entire party was there by 8:18 and we weren't seated until 8:45am. The hostess was abrupt and continued to say we were next and to wait at the bar despite sitting 4 parties before us include a walk-in party of the same size (the group told me they were a walk-in). For entrees we ordered 2 bolognese and 1 pork chop. The pork chop was delicious but the pasta had clearly been sitting for 10 minutes plus before being served. The decor of the restaurant was fantastic and our server was great but everything else was mediocre or disappointing. I am NOT a complainer as I worked in restaurants and hotels for 10 years but I was really looking forward to this experience and was disappointed.

We went for Father’s Day. I ordered the Chicken paillard. It CRME hard and rubbery. Instead of re-cooking it , they asked me to order something for else. Hardly apologetic or sincere and didn’t offer to comp a drink.
I will not be back. Very average food and service.
