Very nice spot for lunch with coworkers. The waiter was helpful and we all enjoyed our pasta dishes. I would go back if my company was footing the bill again.

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.

Decent Italian food; tables are a bit tight making it a bit difficult to move around the restaurant.

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.

Delicious food and fantastic service. I was there on my own and didn’t feel lonely or in the way at all. The food was so good I even had desert! A must go in NYC.

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.

Good food but the service is poor. Our waiter was great but we had to wait 45 minutes for a table despite a reservation. The maitre d’ was very low-grade - a bit frazzled, unable to remember guests or what she previously told them. I know there are many guests but it’s not THAT difficult to keep track of guests with reservations who are all standing in your general area.

The main space is very noisy but some might like it. The downstairs space is much better for a friendly lunch but it lacks ambiance. The gramigna was very good tho. I must admit that :)

Loud, noisy, cramped tables with a constant cold draft due to the table being close to the entrance door.

Waited over 45 minutes for a table. Restaurant was in the weeds. Many customers were upset. I felt an experienced manager and host would have had a better handle on allowing these situations to get to that level. After complaining several times we did get a round of drinks and an appetizer when we sat which was a nice gesture. Restaurant is very loud. Food was good. Our server basically didn’t know we were there. Never really came over to our table. Flow of food was kind of non existent. We had to ask to place orders consistently.

The food, drinks and service were excellent and great value. Everything we ate was well-presented and cooked to perfection. My wines were very good, above all the Montepulciano Avignonesi. The wine list seemed to have been well chosen and offered an interesting range. Service was attentive and friendly. The only issue - and this, I guess, is not something the restaurant can do much about - was the level of noise, which at times was verging on the unacceptable. (And I previously lived in Italy for over 20 years!) I liked the music, however. All in all, a fine experience that I very much hope to repeat on a future visit to NY.
