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 surfaces of this restaurant are all HARD and it's incredibly noisy - the service is ridiculous, disorganized and unprofessional. Food is mediocre - good for the area if it was served professionally. The lack of organization is seriously concerning. I will never go back

I was disappointed by the midtown location -- the food was not as good as the NoMad location. The A/C was also out in the restaurant on Wednesday night so we sat outside which was fine, but unpleasant for those sitting inside.

The Hostess was very kind in accomodating with a last minute changes on the reservation. She also helped our group a lot since our server was a bit all over the place.
Food is a solid 4 out of 5, I wish they just turn up the AC a little bit higher to make us comfortable eating.

The service was rushed. We sat at 6:30pm. Ordered food by 6:45pm (after first ordering drinks and taking our time reviewing the menu.)
Our shared appetizer (meatballs) arrived 5 minutes at 6:50pm. They were delicious as was the sauce they were in. The bus boy came over exactly 5 minutes later, while food was still on our plates and asked if we were done. We were not. In fact we asked for more bread to dip in the sauce because it was so delicious. He came back with the bread and told us that our entrées were ready and asked if he could bring them out. yet. It was now 7:00pm. We literally had ordered only 15 prior and our main courses were being pushed out.
We told him we were not ready for our main courses and to please hold them. He didn’t listen. They made room on the table for our main courses (2 pasta dishes.)
My friend’s dish (tagliatelle with shrimp) was luke warm at best. The air conditioning vent vent above our table quickly made both dishes cold, despite us repeatedly asking them to turn it down. We were told it was the n a timer they couldn’t control.
Food was good but very overpriced, rushed and the service was horrible.

I always wanted to try this place and finally did and I’m glad I did. Very testy food and they carry one of my childhood drink, gazzosa. I had the garganelli with wild mushrooms, it was creamy and testy. I will go back to try out some of the other dishes.

We have been going to this location since it opened and we love it. The food is consistently good. Service is friendly. This time we we took family with us and went as a group of 6. Everything was fantastic. If I have to pick highlights, the farro salad and the arancini are my favorite appetizers. And the garganelli pasta is amazing. Every dish was delicious. Our server was wonderful. We are so happy to have La Picora Bianca in our neighborhood.

Food was just servicable. My appetizer was grilled peaches and stracchino -- my favorite cheese. They seemed to have re-heated the peaches on top of the cheese, which yielded a mushy, curdled mess. The service was friendly and attentive.

Liked the restaurant, the food was good with healthy portions. The one thing I did not like was that my waiter would tell us about a dish or wine and then immediately tell us the price of it. I know how to read a menu and know how to read prices, it definitely made me a bit weirded out.

Service was just a bit lacking - we had a bottle of white wine which was not on our table. had to flag the waiter down to get refills.
Plates left too long after finishing. It was very busy that night.

Good atmosphere but noisy. We enjoyed a reunion of old friends for lunch on a Saturday at 1pm. The food was good-especially the Orcata and the Mista appetizer. Wine seemed overpriced but it is NYC. Would definitely visit again.
