    We met there for lunch on the patio at 11:30. Easy to find a table BUT as a party of three we could not find any shade. The umbrellas are lovely but do not tilt so only two people could sit in the shade and we took turns sitting in the sun...it was so beautiful outside that it was worth it. Our waitress was lovely but it felt like she was new to the job. We have been there several times before and found comfortable seating and good service so we know this was a blip.

    I’ve never had a bad experience at Bianca’s. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was friendly and casual. Our server was friendly, attentive and welcoming. The food was delicious and the hummus was outstanding as always.

    Bianca continues to be an outstanding option in Chestnut Hill for eclectic and farm to table food. The manager is delightful and the staff terrific and dedicated. The service has been a little spotty lately with younger staff who are not yet up to speed on the food items but they are motivated and will snap to soon. The burrata is superb and their pizzas are exceptional. Pastas could improve and are not there yet. Sushi is excellent and cocktails are creative and delicious. Hummus appetizer is also excellent. Definitely a great choice if you are local and still a great choice for driving in to get a local upscale and fun experience on the Street. PS the street corn new appetizer is outstanding!

    Nice vibe at restaurant but not a good value for what you are served. Portions are small and prices are high. The grilled shrimp was only five shrimp with no side other than sauce and was $29! The cod was good, but was smaller piece than usual and served with a very small side of leeks and potatoes. Ordered side of wood grilled broccoli which should have been enough to share but wasn’t. We have been to Bianca at least five times and will probably not go back after this past experience. Prices are up and portion size is down.

    This restaurant was the most perfect spot for a Labor Day weekend dinner. Bringing our two young grands worked well because we had an understanding server and the outdoor atmosphere is totally divine! To top it all off, each of the adults truly enjoyed our dinnes that was prepared as requested and nicely presented. If I could make any suggestions, it would be to have a kids, pizza and actual chicken fingers/tenders on the kids meal menu, which is rather sophisticated. Highly recommend Bianca for many reasons !

    Service was very slow. Noticed other parties getting attention/service/food before ours although we had been seated before them. Didn’t receive one item and was told it wasn’t on the bill because she forgot. However it was on the bill and unfortunately had to take it out of her tip. Because we didn’t have time to wait for an updated bill.

    We had a wonderful brunch here. Three of us had the breakfast pizzas which were wonderful but really enough for two people. I had the mushroom pizza with an egg and it was amazing. One person in our party order the Japanese latke which was yummy but smaller than expected. No worries! We had lots of pizza to share. The brunch cocktails were very good too!! The wait staff was attentive but not hovering. None of us had been there before and we thought the decor was lovely. Overall a great experience. We will be back for sure!! Yum!!😊

But seriously, we already loved the food and drink here, and the staff went above and beyond to help my fiancé plan the perfect surprise proposal out on the beautiful patio. I can’t thank everyone involved enough for helping us create such a lovely memory. You all rock!!! 🤍💍🍾

    We’ve tried Bianca 4 or 5 times, hoping it would become one of our go to spots. The outdoor patio is very nice. But we continue to be unimpressed with the cuisine. The cocktails are almost devoid of alcohol, and the food offerings are mediocre, at best. With so many restaurants to choose from, I doubt we’ll be going back again

    Salmon was very salty, expensive and got nothing as a side with it. Portion was small for 32$ piece of fish served in a bowl of sauce. If you want bread you have to pay $3.50 for a side of bread. Hi and’s pizza was tasty but expensive,$24. If you like small portions that are expensive give it a go and would stick to the pizza.

    Our server was great and the food we had was great as well. However, the only thing that was very disappointing was that she said you were out of sushi???? How is that possible?! I specifically came there for the shiitake mushroom roll and was told you didn’t have it! She said you were out of all rolls except the spicy tuna. That makes no sense and she didn’t seem to indicate why you would be out of sushi? How does that happen? Very disappointing!!

    Our waitress was friendly, attentive, and accommodating. The pizza was a total winner with both kids and adults, and the vegan pasta dish was super creamy and perfectly portioned. While the sushi was ok, I’ve had better and the rolls were on the small side. Cocktails were unique and excellent. I will definitely go back!
