Had another great night at Pecora Bianca! Our waitress was particularly lovely! Also love that they put a napkin under the glasses with sparking water in them so that the staff does not refill them with regular water. All restaurants should learn this trick!

Octopus was super tough, brocollini had so much garlic it was inedible...tuna tartare was not great...pieces cut way to large for tuna tartare...
Our waiter rushed us out even though there was no wait.
Will likely not go back

I’ve been to this restaurant several times the food is quite good the service is pretty good but this time they have a new hostess was abrasive on several different occasions. Both during the seating process and on checking a coat. Was bizarre haven’t experienced anything like this. While a hostess is not going to make or break It certainly makes me more hesitant about returning

While I have been to La Picora Bianca many times, I was disappointed with the service manners this time. I had to ask both our servers and those bringing food and removing dishes to NOT reach across my guests. The staff should know to go to the gusts side to reach across, not in front of their faces. I know this sounds minor but manners should prevail. KTU

Went here for a business lunch. The food is good, pastas/salad etc. and it is not too noisy so you can hear your conversation.

Took some clients here for dinner and wish I would have taken some pictures. 4 out of 5 of us had the strip steak and it was spectacular for that cut of meat. We tried the meat and cheese boards which were also very good! This place was packed on a Monday night, and so glad I made the reservation on Opentable. They called me 2 days before to confirm as well, which was a nice touch! I can’t speak highly enough of this place. Great place for a variety of occasions, and it was never too loud to have a conversation either.
Would absolutely go back and I think I turned our clients into fans of the place!

Love this restaurant but had less than stellar experience with food this time. Ordered a veal Milanese and it came out ready in literally 5 mins (along with my friend’s salad) and was obviously microwaved which was evident when I tasted it. For a restaurant prides itself on quality food this is unacceptable.

Very comfy ambiance, attentive staff, reasonable to good seating for a business lunch. Coat service good. Would recommend to others - 15 min walk from Grand Central.

One of the worst meals we’ve had in midtown Manhattan.
I ordered the white truffle tagliatelle pasta, the pasta absolutely sucked and had 3 small shavings of truffle.
My wife ordered the scallops and they were overcooked.
No wait staff to even check on us throughout the meal.

The waitress was not as obliging as she should have been regarding my food allergies. The food ended up being prepared very well and was delicious. But it should not have been as difficult as she made the experience

The food was great but we felt rushed.
Staff continually tried to clear our plates, ask if we wanted anything else and interrupted us.
It made what was supposed to be a fun after work meal a harassed affair and I can only assume they wanted us out to be able to seat the next table.

My food came out cold. I sent it back and it camer out cold again. They offered to send it back again. By then everyone else was done eating. All the pasta dishes tasted as if they were sitting aroung for an hour.
They were nice enough to offer something else on the house, but everything was tasteless. Mass produced food.

This Pecora Bianca location has a great, bright, airy, casual chic atmosphere. Dinner at the bar is just as fun as in the main dining area. The Farrow Salad and the Graminga pasta are both favorite dishes- both are simple but unique. Wish they had more exciting vegetarian options on the menu, but overall most people can find something they like. The hostess is sometimes not as nice as she could be. Oh well. Food is good, wine is dependable too.

Was recommended by friends for an uptown restaurant with a downtown vibe. Couldn't agree more. Plus the food was spectacular and the service was great! If you're looking for a quiet spot, this is not the place, very loud. But it did not bother us in the least. We will definitely be going back.

The food was delicious and we like the atmosphere, however the service was very slow. It took a long time before we even saw a waitress and then she disappeared again. We have been before and that wasn't the case. Perhaps they were short staffed -- not sure

Both the hostess and the food were cold. Waitstaff were fine and the room is pleasant but the stone-faced hostess and the cold eggs benedict will make me think twice before returning (and we live literally across the street).
