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.

The chef should seriously consider a smaller portion of tiramisu instead of a plate suitable for 4-5 people.

I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and then returned for dinner.
Breakfast was delicious and delightful! Dinner was sensationally good!! The pasta was simply delicious...as good as I have enjoyed anywhere in the City. Service was pleasant and professional. Tables for two are a bit close to each other and the noise level can be intrusive at dinner. But all in all it was terrific and I wil return and recommend it to friends!

we had a 5:30pm reservation on Sunday, so it was fairly empty and quiet. We wanted an corner seat and initially was told that it was for 3 people, but they were able to accommodate us, which made the evening much nicer. The brussel sprouts are delicious. The bucatini texture was a little disappointing, but will try it again.

La Pecora Bianca was a wonderful dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious, the service prompt and our waitress April was attentive but not overbearing and very friendly, and the decor is stunning. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

First time for us at La Pecora and we absolutely loved it. The cauliflower and the octopus appetizers are fantastic. The fish and the scallop dishes were equally delicious. Service was helpful and courteous and gave us enough time to chat (so atypical in NYC where you are so often rushed through your meal to free up the table). Will definitely be back.

Unfortunately the lunch menu is not available on the weekend, just the brunch menu. But the food was great as well as the service.

Went to this restaurant for a business lunch. I would usually go to the Smith, however the Smith can get very loud. At La Pecora Bianca the volume level was not too loud and the food was very good and came very quickly. Service was also very attentive but not overly so. Would definitely recommend.

Service was awful. Didn't bring dishes we ordered and wait time was super long. Waitress had a major attitude problem. Made for a less than ideal meal.

Great addition to this neighborhood. Food has been very good every time we have been there. This most recent visit was great. Our server was wonderful; very polite and attentive. Everyone else who served our table was great.
Food was delicious. We had the spagetti pomodoro, the daily special truffle taglietelle, the aarancini, the brussel sprouts, the farro salad and the summer corn. We liked everything we had but the brussels sprouts side dish is the TRUE star and is a must-have. The farro salad is also a not-to miss item.
We will most definitely keep going back.
The one comment I must make is that I miss the little side-nook area next to the entrance that had the high bar tables and high chairs. I loved that "quick seating" feel and eating looking out the window. It has now been transfomed into more regular tables as in the main dining room. (The row of tables immediately in front of/next to the bar are noticeably cramped.)

The food and waitstaff is consistently very good at La Pecora Bianca. Favorites include scallops, zucchini fries and honey Brussel Sprout side dish. It’s a pleasant atmosphere except it can be very loud on a busy night!

Pecora Bianca
With all of the restaurant closings in Midtown East, we are excited that Pecora Bianca is here. This is a go to spot for us as it offers tasty, simple, Italian fare served in minimalist (yet attractive and pretty) JAMMED digs. The age 20 to 30 something clientele fills most of the restsurant. The staff is pleasant and efficient, and Jimmy M. is the best server in the house, with his extremely attentive, warm, pleasantly humorous and very accommodating service. What a pleasure!
This visit we enjoyed the kale salad (SO good), the Dorade with squash and tomatoes (good and healthy as it is dairy free and low fat), and pasta marinara (tasty). We have previously enjoyed the good meatball appetizers (one order is more than enough for two people to share), the pasta with broccolini and homemade sausage (the pasta itself, cooked al dente, was perfectly prepared, albeit a tad salty, and how can you resist sausage with broccoli?) Pecora Bianca is lively, casual, packed, young and serves good Italian food at reasonable prices. The service tonight was exceptionally good by both the manager (Kelsey) and server (Jimmy M.) The vibe is energetic and fun and we are quite happy to have Pecora Bianca in the neighborhood!

Food was really good. Service was too. Issue is with a two-top, you are seated really close to other two-tops and you can hear other table conversation. We were sandwiches between two couples each on a date. Very hard to hear your tablemate speaking. We went on the later side which was good but still very noisy. And the two-top table is very tiny for plate and drinks and candle to enjoy the dining experience.
