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.

Very disappointing brunch. Poor service and food. Very hot in the restaurant and the waitress hated serving our children who were seated on a different table.

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!

The food, drinks, and ambiance were all amazing! Unfortunately we had a very cranky server who immediately told us that she was “on the verge of a mental breakdown.” We knew it was going to be downhill from there. We had finished our appetizer before our drinks arrived. She never checked on us when our entrees arrived, never asked if we wanted more drinks, and when it was time to cash out I literally had to chance her down.

I would never normally post such a review but I feel like the owners and management team should know how their establishment is being represented.

Otherwise everything was excellent and we will absolutely come back.

Food very good, especially the pasta carbonara special that night. House white wine interesting, dry but floral. Love the 1.5 glass option. Size just right. Service fine. Staff honored request for quiet table. It was the best - tucked away in a comfortable corner. Altho the place is high volume, crowded, with long lines for bathroom, will return for sure. Free street parking in the area available after 7 PM.

Very pleasant service. The Dorado was excellent although there were a few bones in it. The pasta was also very good. Portions were ok but the fish for 28 could have had a bit more "vegetable accompaniers".

Best Italian food I’ve had in Manhattan. Grilled octopus weans, olives, radicchio complex, nicely charred and dressed with excellent vinaigrette Ravioli light and creamy green salad well dressed a delight all round. Sat outside so picked up street noise but still easier to hear than in very flattery interior. Good thoughtful service. Price not bad at all.
