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.

Table ready at time of reservation. Took guests to dinner and the service was right on! The food was amazing. Pasta made in house and superb. Had the octopus appetizer, which was outstanding. Others had the meatballs and the cauliflower appetizers -excellent. Seems you can’t go wrong with any of the pasta dishes. Just made reservations for this Thursday. You won’t regret dining at La Pecora Bianca.

Went here for dinner prior to waking for to Times Square for a show and had an awesome dinner. Service was great, food was awesome with a decent size portion. Only complaint was food took a while to come out.

Such a lovely space, and yet La Pecora Bianca - NoMad never fails to disappoint. From the surly hostess to the burned (and returned) fritada. I just hope someone who cares about the customer takes this place over some day.

Great food. Great atmosphere. Came here with a friend and split two types of their homemade pasta. Both were amazing. The curly pasta with sausage and broccolini was absolutely terrific, as was the rolled pasta with mushroom and just a hint of pesto. We ate there days ago, and I am still craving that pasta. Will definitely be back.

Disappointed in one of our favorite spots, as both food (which took an unusually long time to come out) was below our expectations, as was the service (never checked on us after meal served; was completely unresponsive to needs of our five-year-old).

Excellent service and the food is consistently great. Fairly large open space so the noise level can be pretty lively but overall, it’s a solid place for excellent homemade Italian food.

If you read the other reviews of this restaurant, there are a couple of pretty consistent criticisms. First, even if you make a reservation, you may not get seated anywhere close to your reservation time. I've been to the restaurant four times over roughly two months and twice we were not seated until 25 minutes or more after our reservation time. There is virtually no place to wait for your table. Second, they've asked people to leave that have "overstayed" their reservation. While this hasn't happened to me, it wouldn't be surprising in light of the first criticism. Bottom line is I wish their management/owners would take note of these problems and take corrective action.

I love this place. I've been there this past summer and sat outside with my friend. It's quickly becoming one of our fav spots. The service is always excellent, as well as the food. I
I had brunch there for this first time this past wknd, and only wish the bar area was a bit more spacious for when patrons are waiting there for their table. Other than that I had a great time and will definitely be back.

Overly priced food with poor quality, poor quality service as far as ordering food. Only good part was several hosts were constantly refilling waters. Appetizer came out with food. Waiter forgot my side order. Food was small portions and bland in taste

A great find for our girls night out! The food was fantastic, the service excellent, and the ambiance is great. My friends and I had a nice relaxing dinner. We started with the Toscano salad, Whipped Ricotta and Honey and the meatballs. All were divine. My personal favorite was the Whipped Ricotta and Honey. We shared the Gramigna and Tagliatelle - both were awesome. My friend has the swordfish and although I am not a fish eater, she said it was outstanding. I did taste the roasted finnochio (fennel) and it was to die for. Our water, David, was outstanding. Very attentive to our needs, did not rush us and overall was super friendly and fun. We absolutely loved the atmosphere. I highly recoomend

I have been putting off providing my feedback as I was a bit disappointed to have dined at this location (unlike the Midtown location where I had dined earlier in the year)...Hope our dining experience was an exception...

I could only guess the food and service quality had something to do with the un-inspired/unmotivated staff on deck (Sunday before Xmas holiday). Food and service didn't seem to go hand in hand with the cost of the dinner. My friend's steak was over seasoned with Sea salt and came overly rare although she asked for medium. The rock shrimp pasta I ordered was overly cooked (mushy), tasteless, and the portion was small. We sat at the bar and although there was only one more customer at the bar, we only got the bartender when we had to sort of wave to get her attention. The restaurant was less than half full at the time we were there.
