    An overpriced (a side of kale for $19), rather average experience, uneven service. On the positive side, food was tasty, we were seated and served quickly. Overall, seems to be popular with the affluent Chestnut Hill crowd.

    The staff, especially the host and waitress were great. They were very accommodating and friendly. The food was great, although the rotisserie chicken salad could be more of a Cobb salad by adding corn and cranberries. Everything else was excellent.

    Excellent service. Some items are overly pricey- a tuna roll for $22!! But almost all the food is very good. Nice selection of drinks. Smoked mussels are good but avoid the nasty pickled carrots that for some reason are in the dish. Cod, mushroom pizza and salad excellent

    First time dining here. Food was good. Service was okay. Too noisy for a business meeting and the sun was blinding half the guests where we sat. There was no way to alter the sunlight or switch our seating. The server stated…”The sun will move.” Seriously? It did indeed move (no kidding) and it got worse than when we first arrived.

    Loved the overall vibe with its bright, airy ambiance. We went for a birthday celebration because it's a newish place, offers a varied menu for our varied palates, and was conveniently located for all of us. Unfortunately the food was a mixed bag. Appetizers came out after all 4 of us were served meals. The Japanese fried chicken app was dry as a bone but the sushi was a hit. The filet mignon was tasty and well-prepared (but overpriced). The tuna steak sandwich was tasty too. Two guests shared a salad that was soggy and a pizza that was meh. Would we go back? Probs not, which is too bad because we really enjoyed the setting and the server was very friendly/pleasant.

    Overall, Bianca was good but the pasta wasn’t al dente and the middle of the pizza was undercooked. The atmosphere is nice casual. The service was very good even though the servers were barely adults. Maybe it was a tough night for the kitchen. I will give it another chance.

    The menu looked better than it tasted. Hamachi and tuna with caviar were sitting in soy based sauces which made it a little salty but the shiitake mushroom tempura roll was very good.

    This was our first time dining at Bianca. We plan to return. Service was prompt and helpful. Throughout our dinner, various staff and the hostess stopped by our table, a comfortable banquette. Our pizzas and salads were well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. The portions were very generous. Without appetizers, 1 beer (amongst the 4 of us) and without dessert, the cost was $$$. Ambiance and decor were fresh and bright. We hope to return when patio dining is possible. Two additional notes: when making our reservation via OpenTable, it seemed that there was no available seating. In fact, there were many seats; always check the latest menu or call ahead because the actual menu did not match the online one. Items were fewer and prices were higher.

    Did not expect to have excellent dining experience we had. Very pleasantly surprised by the level of food served. Everything our party of 3 shared was outstanding in taste and presentation. Delightful service staff. Unfortunately service was slow, but that is something we all have become accustomed to since the staffing challenges due to the pandemic. I look forward to me next meal at this newish restaurant

    BF and I came here on a pretty steady Friday night. Food was awesome and we were seated right away with our reservation. Food and initial drinks arrived in a timely manner. Our waitress was nice, but she didn’t come check on us after our water and drink glasses were empty. We waited for long periods of time (20+ minutes) for our second drink, as well as for our box for our food to arrive. Two other waitresses asked us if we had needed a box since we were just sitting there with our leftovers. It also took a while for our check to arrive and we noticed the couple next to us was also sitting there waiting for their check. All in all we were at the restaurant for over two hours. We still had a good time but the timeliness of service could definitely be improved.

    Bianca is a very pleasant place to have a meal. I have been there before and while the food is always OK, it is never spectacular. Last night the brussel sprouts, which are usually wonderful weren't hot enough and the butterscotch pudding tasted insipid and hadn't been cooked to the right consistency. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the evening.

    Service was a little slow for lunch, but food was worth the wait. We sat outside so kids playing in the play area were noisy, but the traffic on Rte 9 was surprisingly quiet. This was my first visit, but will go again.

    It was fine. The service was great. The after doing net latte was not so good. They need to up the coffee quality to compliment the service and most of the food. The truffle fries should never be served on their side. The need to be served in a papered cone standing up with truffle oil and Parmesan, never on its side. The Margherita pizza reminded me of Chef Boy Ardee from when I was a kid, being from NY the pizza was fair at best.

    Five of us reserved an outdoor table for a birthday celebration last night. It was a beautiful evening and nice to be outside, but we had to wait for an hour for the bread we asked for, and 2 hours to receive our dinners. By the time they finally came, we immediately asked for the check, and left without ordering the birthday dessert we had planned. The food was fine, but didn't quite live up to the price tag of $50 a person. There were lots of screaming children playing on the adjacent play area, so it was also hard to hear one another talk. All in all, not what we had hoped for.

    Service was terrible. Server disappeared for 30 minutes and after waiting for water we went to the bar and asked for it. Appetizers arrived after the entrees and we didn’t touch them as we had already started our mains. When the server did reappear we explained that the apps arrived late and she didn’t seem bothered and didn’t take it off the check. Just gave us a box to take them home. I got the filet mignon which was nice but for $55 it absolutely should come with sides. Added fries and Brussels sprouts which made it a $70+ entree. Totally overpriced. Kids menu is very limited. The place has a lot of potential but our experience was poor.

    Great place with possibly the best fries I’ve ever tasted. If you like the thinner fries, do yourself a favor and order some as an appetizer for the table. The mushroom French dip was super flavorful and as a carnivore I didn’t miss the meat at all. The au jus was the only let down as it wasn’t flavorful. Thankfully, the sandwich didn’t need it as it had more than enough flavor by itself.

    The salad I ordered, one that I'd had a few times prior, wasn't nearly as fresh and vibrant as it typically is. So maybe just an off day! Fries that my guest ordered were delicious. Service was excellent as always.

    Restaurant is beautiful. Weird format where you walk in through the back of the restaurant (apparently) and have to walk through the entire place to get to the host stand and check in. Maybe that makes sense in the summer with people coming in through the patio but less sense when the season changes and people come from the parking lot. Additionally, the food was good but not worth the cost. My burger and fries were very good but it looked and tasted like a great macdonald's meal. Same size burger too. Brussels sprouts were spectacular though. It was a lovely environment just not worth the $$.

    Caesar salad, rotisserie chicken, and roasted cod were all fabulous. But French fries were brought to the table during salad course, with apologies that they were “done earlier than the meal”, so they were cold by the time Dinner came :( Rookie mistake by the kitchen, should not have been served that way!
