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.

Delicious food, great service, and miracle of miracles - even though the restaurant was bustling and lively, I could hear every word of our conversation.

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 is really good. But i always forget how the service lacks. The front door woman is not overly friendly, and no one ever comes back to see if you would like another drink.

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.

An amazing dinner! The service was awesome. The food was even better. We got the Campanelle and the tagliatelle - both were to die for. Also, suggest making reservations for any day of the week because this place is hoppin

We walked by this restaurant several times until we decided to make a reservation and actually try it. We are glad we did! The food and service were excellent. The tables are a little small and a little close together so you will hear others' conversations, so it's not great for a romantic or intimate dinner.

So i was sitting with a friend eating my eggs benedict when something from the ceiling started falling on our head, on our tables on our food. I thought there was a surprise party or something that confetti came out of nowhere. But when we looked up, they were dust the size of golf balls coming out of the vents. I got up so quick because the next thing I smelled was something burning. My friend and I and the all the others sitting on the side, by the window, got the same experience. We were asked to get up and got moved to different tables. We were all covered with this dust (DISGUSTING btw) so we were all dusting off while trying to sit elsewhere. We all then situated ourselves to our new tables, new food came. Food is always good at this place but next time why don't you make it a bit better for the inconvenienced customers perhaps by offering them a comp drink? Or appetizer? Perhaps giving them discount on their bill? Oh yeah, don't turn the vents on WHILE people are eating when you have not turned them after last winter?????

Sunday brunch is admittedly a hectic time to go to brunch in NYC. Still, I thought the staff was generally attendant in a buzzing restaurant. My family and I loved our meals and the decor. I would recommend it.

Service was neither outstanding nor terrible - felt more like I was at a bank than in a restaurant. The bus boy was a particular sweetheart - he was very attentive and helpful with the little details of dining out (too bad we couldn’t tip him directly). Food was fresh but hastily prepared. Setting is beautiful. Lively crowd - can be a little loud sometimes. Overall OK experience.

The food is delish and the service is 5 star. My only criticism is that the tables are very close together so having a conversation is difficult.

Way too loud to have a decent conversation- and for some reason they love pumping up the music even t lunch
My roasted cauliflower was limp and soggy - tasted more like boiled cauliflower
When I mentioned it to server, he kind of shrugged his shoulders
My colleague's pasta dish was no more than a starter portion and soaking in sauce. It was more like a stew with pasta in it :)
The check ... a small lunch for 2 came to an unbelievable $70 and definitely definitely not worth it.

Awesome food!! Highly recommend the whipped ricotta appetizer and the buratta. We all got different pastas and they were all very good. My only complaint is that the chairs were uncomfortable and a little unstable.
