    Had a lovely brunch with an old friend at this sunlit restaurant in The Street complex in Chestnut Hill. We had the first reservation spot at 11 AM and there were only a few other people there to start. All the staff was friendly and responsive, saying good morning even when they were not directly serving us (it might sound silly, but this matters to me). Our waitress was fabulous and knowledgeable about the cocktails and food. I ordered a Rusty Cat (delicious) and had the Bianca omelet. My friend had scrambled eggs and the Oh Beehave cocktail. Everything was really good, especially the homefries, which have a little shakshuka vibe to them. My only suggestion for improvement is to have Maldon or other finishing salt (do not judge me!) as when I asked for it, they brought regular salt. I also like to have salt and pepper on the table rather than having to ask for it, but that might just be me. Finally, the place is both beautiful and comfortable. Looking forward to going back soon!

    Service was very friendly and efficient. The food was just ok. We had the brussels sprouts which were a little burnt. The pasta dishes were mediocre. For the price, we won’t be going back.

    Service was slow. Appetizers arrived promptly but we waited quite a bit for our main course. Customers who arrived after us were already done with their meals by the time we got ours.

    We had a nice mother/daughter brunch. The service was great. We love sitting in the booth seats with all the pastel color china, great mocktails, tasty brunch items in addition to the lunch menu. Great butternut pudding dessert and banana icecream. We always love dining at Biancas! We will be back.

    I went to dinner with my good friend to Bianca. The interior design and ambiance was lovely. The drinks and the food were delicious. However, the food was quite pricey for what we got and the portions were very small. I would recommend for special occasions but not for everyday dining.

    The food is delicious and the service is prompt and very friendly. The atmosphere is warm,, inviting and relaxed. We went on a Tues night and the menu was limited -- no sushi chef and no pizza chef, but we were still able to find tasty and satisfying menu options. The owner and staff definitely care about the dining experience they are creating for their guests. Though it was not available last night, the smoked Salmon sushi is one of the best things I ate (on my prior visit) all year. The smoked chicken added to salads we had last night was moist, full of flavor, and plentiful, with great dressing and fresh plentiful greens in the salad. Cocktail and wine choices are above average/ not the usual boring choices, and reasonably priced for the pour. Overall, this is well worth a visit for a very pleasant dining experience.

    Fantastic place for lunch or dinner. I met up with a friend for our bi-annual lunch. Bianca was terrific. All the food is terrific. We had the burrata (don't miss the tomato jam) and pizzas. The pizza at Bianca is some of the best I've ever had in my life! We were given plenty of time to eat and talk, catch up, and enjoy. The service was lovely. No one rushed us, or made us feel abandoned. Terrific space. Bathroom was clean as well.

    A very pleasant, bright room, with attentive service. A nice spot for a business lunch. The menu is a bit all over the place (miss the nori tacos) combining sushi, pizza and traditional grill items, but I suppose that it's important to maintain the chef/owners' legacy from the iconic O Ya.

    Everything we ordered was delicious. The servers were so kind and attentive. My mom has a severe allergy to alcohol and they made sure everything was cooked properly for her. The only dish that wasn’t what we expected was the pesto ravioli. It was tasty but not a typical ravioli dish. The cocktail was on the pricier side being $14.

    I've been to Bianca twice in the past month. The restaurant is open and spacious, well appointed and inviting. The service is prompt but not rushed. Best of all, the food is great. Pizzas are done in a super hot oven so the crust is thin & crispy. Salads are well made and large enough for two people. I had the tuna tartare last night and it was fresh and super tasty. Pizza and sushi... great idea!

    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.
