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.

Unexpected and very tasty menu. Brussels sprouts were delish but deep fried. Swordfish outstanding but topping was sweet. If you’re on sugar restriction best to ask. Wait staff was outstanding. Noise was over the top l, subway level loud. Expect to talk at a yell.

This is an attractive and bustling restaurant, and both the food and the drinks were excellent. Staff was pleasant, attentive, and efficient. The high noise level made the experience less enjoyable however. Please install noise reduction ceiling material at the very least.

The cheerful bright atmosphere was refreshing, and not what one would expect for a restaurant serving such really delicious food, with excellent service. The menu is interesting , and again not what
you would expect in that location. So all in all we felt we had discovered something very special.

We’ve eaten at La Pecora a number of times as we live in the neighborhood. On this occasion we took out of town visitors and had a great experience! The food is always excellent and well-priced. The servers can have a bit of a ‘tude and sometimes forget about you after your food has been served. That could be an understaffing issue though. The ambience is great albeit a bit noisy when the restaurant is full. Highly recommend the meatball appetizer, the kale salad, any pasta and the fish entrees. Continues to be a go-to for us!

I went to Pecora Bianca twice this week and while the food was very good the service was regrettably poor. The first time, for dinner, it was as if the servers had forgotten about our table, the service was slow and they forgot to bring out a dish. The second time, I went for lunch and again the service was very slow. I don’t know if they are short staffed or if the kitchen isn’t functioning correctly but I hope they sort it out because it’s a great addition to the neighborhood and the one in NoMad is fantastic.

This time a bit disappointed: the spaghetti were not al dente (what's the point to use fresh pasta instead of the dry one, just for being fancy?) and so stuffed of garlic (burned). To avoid in case of a date 😉

What happened? Great bar lived up to expectations. Service and hurry them up and out on top of an early table reservation though was poor form. 3 courses ordered and out within an hour at 6:30pm. I shall rethink future dining as well as recommending this one.

Upon returning just a couple of weeks after our memorably delicious dinner, our expectations left a lot to be desired. This time we had a late lunch, (almost identical menu), the food was not very good - even the roasted cauliflower we had previously was mediocre.
The Brussels sprout salad was ok, the pollo panini was filled with chicken in a Russian dressing-like sauce topped with some vegetables and melted cheese. I scraped as much of the chicken-sauce-vegetable mixture as possible off and just ate the bread with the melted cheese. My friend had the hamburger, with “garlic potatoes” which were whole fingerling potatoes wrinkled and over cooked - not to be served with a hamburger! The menu stating caramelized onions turned out to be some mixture of green vegetables, also needed to be scraped off.
I guess our previous experience did not resemble this one and we will not be returning.

6:45 res for a party of four on a Friday evening, the place was busy but not extraordinarily so. We'd asked for a quieter table, but I doubt that there is one--this place is noisy. The appetizers were good, the pastas we ordered as mains were nothing particularly special, and the shared desserts were pretty good as well. Service was spotty; our waitress seemed to be spread too thin. I'd go back, but only if I couldn't find something else.
