My friend and I went for a brunch and although we were not sat right away, we were offered a seat at the bar until our table was ready. Every single staff member was accommodating and friendly. We absolutely loved the welcoming atmosphere with a slight touch of holiday spirit. (As our visit was around Christmas time). The seating was close but not cramped and the food was fresh and delicious. I cannot stress enough that every single person was there to make sure we were comfortable; whether it be to the bus person or the manager. If there was an empty glass, it was filled. If there was a dirty plate, it was cleared. As a person who has worked in retail and hospitality my entire life, I can honestly say this was the most pleasant place for a quick brunch with the best bang for you buck!

Went to La Pecora for lunch twice in one week and both times it was delicious. The pasta with mushrooms and the pasta with bolognese sauce were amazing. We had reservations both times. On the second visit, we were seated 20 mins late because the place was packed and earlier diners were lingering at their tables. Once we got seated, the host sent over a plate of complimentary burrata to thank us for our patience. That was a very thoughtful and unexpected gesture.

We were made to wait nearly 20 minutes after our reservation time and treated as if it were a privilege to be able to eat there. Very unhappy. It's not a privilege to eat there--it's noisy and pretentious. The food is good, but not good enough to feel this way. Won't be eating there again.

Terrific food and quiet-ish atmosphere for talk. Excellent waiter but the hostess is a horror, a dreadful start, which cooks and wait-staff overcame with stars.

It didn’t have an Italian dining experience feel to it. It wasn’t “bad” but it felt more like a farm to table hipster spot than an Italian restaurant. Again, not bad, but definitely not an authentic traditional Italian restaurant experience. You definitely won’t find traditional Italian entrees here.

I always have had wonderful meals and a great time at La Percoa Bianca but this last visit fell short. Very short. This was the first time all of my party did not order pasta. Each of us had an issue with our dinners - the skirt steak was dry and overcooked; the chicken was fatty and lacked taste, the farro was overcooked and the pork Milanese tasted like it was under a heat lamp for hours. The bill was over $350 for 3 adults and 2 kids who had appetizers.

When we expressed our dissatisfaction, the waiter said he would speak to the manager and then promptly avoided us/never came back. So disappointing.

The meal I received was excellent and very filling. My first server was friendly with a big smile but he must have left half way through my meal because at the end, it was another person who assisted me.

Great food and service. It was a little loud and the tables were arranged very closely together however it didn't take away from the good food from salad to entree to dessert as well as the wine.

I should have listened to Anthony Bourdin about never ordering fish on a Monday. The salmon was not fresh and I am still sick from it.

This is the 2nd year, I've met my girlfriends at La Pecora Bianca for a reunion brunch. The food is delicious with good size portions. We enjoyed the one hour unlimited bloody mary, mimosa or bellini drinks. Our waitress was outstanding - friendly, efficient and happy to accommodate anything we requested. The atmosphere is open and airy but not too noisy, so we could chat and catch up. We will be returning next year!

The food was quite good but it is very noisy and the tables are very close to each other. We shared a tuna tartare for a first course, which was very good. IFor the main course I had the branzino and my friend had the swordfish. Mine was delicious. Hers was a little overcooked. We had a nice bottle of Gavi de Gavi with our dinner.

I will never understand why restaurants won't seat you until your full party is there, but it's a common practice so I'm not upset about it. What I am upset about is how unnecessarily condescending the hosts at La Pecora Bianca are about it EVERY time I come here. It's enough to make me want to not come back.

I loved our server, Zach.
But, they have to be careful w/the curtain around the door, B/c it got so cold so quickly. I don’t know what will happen during January & February.
