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.

We ordered 3 simple dishes, all pasta, and it took over an hour for our food to arrive. They sent a gelato for us to share to apologize, but they clearly just forgot to put in the order. Groups that arrived after us ate, paid and left before we got our dinner. It was ridiculous. The food was good when it did arrive. Hopefully it was an isolated issue

This was first time I was disappointed with my meal. I ordered penne with spicy arrabiata sauce. The sauce was laced with thinly sliced carmelized onions. The sauce was made too sweet by these onions. Someone decided to add their personal touch to a very easy and traditional dish which is what I wanted. I’m guessing the cook was or is not classically trained to cook true Italian food. The meatballs were good and that sauce was tastier and better. I hope you can train your cooks to stick to traditional Italian cooking otherwise it’s more of a fusion restaurant which can be good just not with some pasta dishes.

Food was incredible! Maybe the tastiest pasta dish I have had. Food came to our table quickly.
BUT...
Service was inattentive. Waiter gave us very little attention because we weren’t big spenders. Restaurant was loud. We spent more time waiting for the check than we did eating.
Visit for amazing food, but be prepared for poor service.

Everything was excellent except for the noise level. They need to do something about soundproofing the ceiling so you can hear yourself speak, But other than that, it was excellent.

It was pretty loud - lots of kids. Service was kind of disappointing. Never asked us if we wanted another drinks, didn't bring us bread basket, didn't ask us if we wanted anything after our meal. Food was good, just overall disappointed with service.

Ordered brunch - steak and eggs - steak was fatty and over cooked... 2 tries still could not eat most of the steak, all fat. Rest of the food was very good across 3 other entrees and appetizer. Overall good place, just one bad entree. However, service is inconsistent... slow to respond to issues

While I would recommend the restaurant I would only recommend to go during “off hours”- do an early lunch or super late dinner- the noise level is so high we had to shout across the table- to pay such prices and to not be able to converse comfortably with your seat mates ( at a small table of four!!) is tough to swallow.

La Pecora Bianca offers an excellent value with a hip atmosphere in Midtown Manhattan. We enjoyed an unrushed late lunch. The salad was fresh and tasty and the salmon was perfect. The lattes and espresso were very good, as was the friendly and attentive service.

Food was very good and table service was good, however, kitchen service was extremely poor. As an aside, it would be nice if Open Table had voting sections for Table and Kitchen Service rather than role this up into Service. If they did I would give Kitchen Service a 1 and if lower numbers were allowed I would give it a -5. Our server kept telling us "Your food is coming, Your food is coming" - so is Christmas! No excuse for such an exorbitant delay when The Smith, which is close by, handles a lot more customers and provides very good food and Table Service and the Kitchen always gets the food our promptly. Although we have been to La Pecora Bianca a number of times this was our last. Will never return!
