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.

Went for weekday lunch. A little loud but we were lucky to get a seat beside a dividing wall, was a little better. Great service and food. Chicken palliard was nice & moist.

What a wonderfully delicious dining experience!!!! I had the lavender spritz, which was very refreshing. The whipped ricotta, so good! The gramigna pasta is amazing! My sister had the octopus appetizer and the rigatoni. Both very tasty dishes! I highly recommend this restaurant, you won't be sorry!

Decided to try La Pecora because one day I walked by and it was very busy. We sat for dinner at 6:30pm. We both had a glass of wine and we found the pour VERY disappointing. Not a great start. The volume in the restaurant got progressively louder and it was necessary for us to literally yell across a two top table so we could hear each other. I had the octopus and strip steak and my wife had the Manila clams with gluten free pasta. I found the octopus had way to much sauce of some sort and the steak had had a sauce on it which was not in the description. Not a fan when all ingredients of an entree are not included in the description. I did not find my appetizer and entree to be anything special or memorable. My wife actually enjoyed her pasta. As I mentioned earlier we sat at 6:30, we could not wait to leave, and were out of there by 7:30pm. I personally felt our server was rushing us and needless to say this was not a relaxing dinner and will not return.

The food was delicious!! I cannot state this enough. The service was very good. The ambiance was somewhat more casual than I was hoping for on a Saturday night, but do not let that deter you as long as you are not looking for something very romantic.

Great good. Exceptional service. Friday nights may get a little too noisy if you want to actually talk to the person across the table without yelling.

Service was horrible. Stopped in for lunch today. No designated waiter or server. About 7 different people brought things to my table. I had to move plates to a table adjacent to mine for anyone to realize they needed to be picked up. Wasn’t asked if I wanted more coffee. Absurd. Left $2 tip.

Overall it was a fine experience. I don't know if I'd put it on the top of my list to visit again. The food was all a bit cold. The truffle butter pasta lacked flavor and needed salt. Everything needed a little salt actually, all a bit bland. Mostly I was happy the meal came in under $100 each from my friend and me. We got 3 apps and shared a pasta. She had a cocktail and I had a beer and a glass of wine.

We made reservations and upon arrival let the host know we had a 7:30 show. Our waiter went above and beyond making sure we were served in a timely manner. The food was PHENOMENAL as usual :) The tagliatelle and the pasta dish with sausage and broccolini was out of this world. Can’t wait to go back!

The food is delicious and friendly servers. We had the roasted cauliflower, scallops, and some pasta all of which were delicious. We ended with the Tiramisu for two which was so decadent with lots of mascarpone! I’d go back for sure.

Very good brunch with friends- so lucky to have you in our neighborhood! The Apérol Spritz was the perfect summer cocktail. It got pretty lively at a table behind us- a bunch of girls having a very good time! Got pretty noisy, but in a happy way. We’ll be back!

Great atmosphere, great food, great service. Definitely a casual mid tier establishment that knows what they do well and sticks to it. Casual but upscale. Fancy but not contrived. Solid, solid restaurant.

We waited 1 hour for our reservation, however one of the hostess was very nice- didn’t get his name but was young and on the shorter side. He offered to comp our drinks for dinner and got our food out very fast. He checked on us throughout the dinner which was nice since we waited so long to be sited.

It was a sisters dinner. We took gazpacho, burrata and a Tuscano salad with a beer and a glass of whine.
72 dollars. Good food but a little bit expensive.
Ah, first bill was wrong (99 dollars)...so...take a look before pay!
