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.

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.

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.

We had a reservation for 1:30 and still waited for almost 40 minutes to be seated. Restaurant was extremely noisy and cramped. Food was mediocre at best. The server forgot to bring drinks we ordered. They were obviously overbooked and overwhelmed. $18 for a small and sad portion of egg Benedict, served on overly toasted piece of bread and some insincere side salad. Not okay.

Great energy. Good vibe. Good service.
Paninis were premade and served cold. A little more effort and attention to the sandwich prep would really help. Didn’t seem to hurt business though....it was packed and bustling for lunch on Friday.

We had dinner reservations for 8p and were not seated until 840p. While not entirely the restaurant's fault, they made no attempt to ask a table who had lingered far too long to leave. They offered us a round of drinks and an appetizer, which was nice, but I would much rather have been seated when our reservation was.

Super crowded on a Thursday night which is probably expected. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was very good and food was also very good and flavourful. I liked it overall and would definitely come back. Menu had lots of choices and wines were reasonably priced. Not super spectacular hence I didn’t give it 5 stars but I definitely liked it.

When I entered the restaurant for an 11;30 reservation, I was told that I would have to vacate my table at 12:45. I was NOT told this prior to coming to the restaurant, which was very rude. At 12:40 two people started clearing our table and rushing us with the check, while we weren't close to finished. I thought their actions were rude and disrespectful. Don't tell me when I arrive for lunch (with 5 people) that I will have to be done in the middle of the lunch hour! Very disappointing. I will not be returning.
