I love La Pecora Bianca and take many out-of-town visitors here. It’s delicious and reasonably priced. Everything on the menu is amazing and the service is great. Everyone I’ve taken here loves it too!

I love La Pecora Bianca! With their beautiful decorations and ambiance along with their delicious pastas I can't get enough. My friend and I have a pact to keep trying different pastas each time we go. The only thing is it can get extremely loud in the restaurant making it a little hard to hear. Other than that it's great!

My husband and I had a lovely brunch on Sunday. Nice to be able to eat brunch at 10:00 am. Good menu options, great coffee, best pancakes we have tasted in a long while - fluffy, flavorful. I had the baked eggs with a spicy tomato sauce - different and pan licking good. We would like to go back for dinner sometime soon.

My favorite pasta restaurant in Manhattan. And the chocolate mousse dessert? Omg, so dense and smooth at the same time. Almost the consistency of chocolate frosting!

This is very good and reasonably priced Midtown Italian serving fresh hand made pasta. The pasta is as good as any of the high end Italian restaurants in Manhattan. However, it is loud and the service was efficient but aloof. Great pasta at a good price and a nice menu this is the place, especially for a small group. If you're looking for an intimate conversation or want impeccable and attentive service, this is probably not the place.

Horrible service and long delays to place order and receive food. The eggs were salty the first time around and overcooked the second time.

We went for brunch on President’s Day weekend and enjoyed it very much! It was hard to find brunch reservations most other places, but they had a great brunch for a table of 6. The scrambled eggs with avocado toast, pancakes, and eggs Benedict were excellent. Good lattes. It was a bit expensive, even for an NYC brunch. The service was good, even though their clean up was harsh and quick. After a bit, they definitely wanted us to leave the restaurant because they were trying to get other parties in. Overall, a great and beautiful brunch place with classic NYC brunch food.

I was very upset that I'm paying for an more than normal pricier pre fix menu and on a special night of Valentine's Day and many items were not on this small menu it was upsetting because for two of our 3 courses we weren't able to get what we had originally planned on getting prior to making the reservation and adhering to a pre fix menu think we were gunna be able to enjoy what we wanted I'm not one to normally get upset when something is out but when it's a pre fix and also when your all planned to come in to pay a set price for something we wanted on this night and couldn't get it it was incredibly frustrating

Excellent Italian. Went for dinner with a friend on a Thursday and had a wonderful experience. The mescal Negroni was smooth and gently smokey. Our waiter Sarah was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The The food was delicious, and the portions were generous. I recommend any of the homemade pastas. The olive oil cake and an Amaro was the perfect way to cap off the meal. Can't wait to go back!

I brought two business colleagues who were visiting NYC here and w had a terrific meal. We each had a different pasta dish, and all three were winners. The service was helpful, friendly and prompt. My colleagues were impressed with the food quality ("the best pasta I have had outside of Italy") and equally impressed by the excellent value and moderate prices.

Arancini , Branzino And Brussel Sprouts were great. Nice selection of Negroni’s in addition to their wine list. WaitstAff needs to understand that diners need a few minutes to look at the wine/cocktail list . We were asked twice within five minutes of being seated what we would like “besides water” please , please , please I know you need to turn tables over but give people a little breathing room

I went for the prix fixe restaurant week menu, which had some great menu items included. The appetizer especially was a pretty huge portion size - I got the brussels salad and got full off just that, and my cousin got the meatballs which included 3 pretty good size meatballs with crusty bread. For my main I got a mushroom- pesto pasta which was very aromatic and made for great next day leftovers. The dessert (olive oil cake) was not as amazing as the pasta but still great as far as cake goes.
