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.

Ambiance and service was fine, but brunch food items were mediocre. It seems there is only one type of bread they use. No matter whether you’re having whipped ricotta, eggs Benedict, or French toast. Not always fit for purpose.
Salmon frittata was super dry and overcooked. Ricotta pancakes tasted super egg-y.

I’ve had the pasta here for dinner and would return for that, but would not recommend the brunch menu.

We had a very enjoyable meal at La Pecora Bianca! To say it's vibrant would be correct. It is a very busy, bustle type of restaurant and there is background music playing. The cocktail menu is interesting and the appetizers were delicious. I had the whipped Ricotta and would have enjoyed more bread to eat with it; the ratio of bread to Ricotta was off. My husband had the Tuna Tartare and really enjoyed it. We opted for Pasta for dinner and the portion was just right. The Campanelle with mushrooms was very flavorful and tasty. The Tagliatelle Bolognese also delightful. We did not stay for dessert because we were pressed for time for an event, but the cappuccino, I'm sure would have been memorable.

The restaurant is good, great pasta - serviceable and tasty. However the service struggled with friday night bookings as any decent restaurant do in friday nights - I have to wait for 15 minutes for my reserved seat and I'm 30 minutes early. Probably just an off day, but everything's good.

Service was extremely poor. Food came out cold, had to send it back to be reheated. Waiter was near impossible to get ahold of when we needed more water, etc. Additionally, we were seated near the door and every time someone entered or exited we were met with a blast of cold air. Not the best dining experience.

I like this place a lot. I prefer the midtown location for comfort and noise level, but the menu is the same and the food is really delicious, well prepared Italian. The NoMad location is quite noisy, but I did have a really nice table at a banquette which helped. The pasta dishes are outstanding as are the meatballs. The swordfish dish was nothing special, and pricey as swordfish tends to be. The wine selection is very good, but pricey as well. Service was friendly and efficient. I've eaten here several times and it's always pretty much the same reliable food and service.

We’ve eaten at the midtown location numerous times and were unhappy to find that this location not only had a smaller footprint, but a smaller menu as well. Still good food, but would opt to go to the other locations for more options and better ambiance.

I was looking forward this place after hearing some great reviews about their lunch. We decided to come for brunch but was very disappointed by the food. The frittata was over cooked and not flavorful. While I didn’t say anything about the overcooked dish, they must’ve noticed and they did give us a free desert type dish at the end which was a nice gesture. Coffee was burnt tasting and cold.

I’ll come back here to try the lunch but not for brunch

I always feel comfortable here! Food is always delicious. Ambiance is perfection. Service was great. A tad slow? But immediately upon sitting we were handed complimentary Prosecco which made everything worthwhile. Tuna tartare app was divine. We had a bit of an issue with the check at the end -- we were initially charged for the complimentary drinks, which they acknowledged immediately and dealt with. Other than that, we felt very comfortable and happy and filled by the end of the night.

We were celebrating a birthday, as were many tables around us. Our waiter knew we were celebrating a birthday and we were the ONLY table that did not receive a candle with dessert. It was honestly offensive. Our bill also came with extra drinks that we did not order. The waiter took it off the bill, but it makes me wonder how many people wouldn’t have caught the error. Bread is complimentary, but for a table of four the first round of bread came with two huge pieces and two small ones. The second round of bread came with one large piece and two small pieces...three pieces for four people... Two people at our table ordered steak and we had to ask for steak knives. Speaking of silverware, at one point our silverware was switched and the tray containing said fresh silverware was held so close to the head of one of the people in our group that she had to physically move her body out of the way. This was a fine meal, but won’t be rushing back. Food was decent but service was lacking.

It is a fantastic place for date, the environment of the restaurant is smooth and comfortable. The light turn from light to a little darker, which is perfect because I went there for dinner and the darker light give the area a sense of nighttime. The service is great, they did took a good care of my feeling. The price of the food is average, unless you went there when it is a special day like Valentine’s Day. The price will get a bit higher for those days. Last by not least, me and my girlfriend enjoyed the food a lot, especially the Nutella tart was one of my favorite because the sweetness was on point. With all those advantages, it will a nice restaurant that I would like to go for the second time

I chose this pretty, well-appointed restaurant for a breakfast meeting with a client I had never met face-to-face before. The decor of the restaurant was highly attractive, and I felt welcome. My guest ordered the avacado toast, but when she tried to saw into it---even once she obtained a steak knife from our waiter---she could not even get a bite. We ordered her the Nutella french toast instead, which she found delightful. My own ricotta pancakes were slightly dry; I may be spoiled, having eaten spectacular ricotta pancakes at Venus in Berkeley a few years ago.
