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.

This spot looks great & ambience is amazing! The hostess was a little off putting & our waiter was terrible... the food was delicious & well prepared but can't imagine going back cause the service really put us & the tables around us off. Specifically - ignored us, kept forgetting food & drink items & then got upset when we followed up.

Yes I would recommend this restaurant but not at lunchtime - too crowded with business people. Mostly men with loud voices. Otherwise, it was an excellent recommendation from someone. Two of us had the Pappardelle with pulled pork ragu which was delicious - not in a red sauce which was a plus. Will go back to sample other dishes.

I went on Valentine’s Day 2019. They had a special for $75 per person for a three course meal from a special valentine menu. The restaurant was dimly lit. Very romantic. The staff was attentive and so very polite. I took my fiancé out for valentines on a 8:30pm reservation at the restaurant and he loved every minute of it. We had 2 glasses of wine and the bill was $230 something. It’s a little pricey to me but the food was great! The steak and grits... omg almost melts in your mouth. If you go you must try the apple cake (it’s on their regular menu). Lastly, even waiters that weren’t assigned to us checked in on us to make sure all was well. I loved it. You will too!

The food, service, and ambiance were all terrific! The only downside (which I was aware of prior to going there) was the overall price of a Valentine’s Day dinner and bottle of wine. With an ok tip, I paid $290.00 which included a three course meal for two and a nice bottle of wine. They offered %33 off for any bottle of wine that was $100.00 or more. If I had to do it again, I would. Great place!

A physically stylish and potentially comfortable restaurant but with a high noise level. Interesting and good food and good service. Food prices were moderately high, as one would expect, but the wines were expensive and two glasses were necessary even for light drinkers. I will go back but either later on a week night evening or try it for lunch to see whether it is a little quieter.

Really excellent homemade pastas, with the only small complaint I have being that the amount of meat was relatively low compared to the amount of pasta. Got most of the shrimp in my pasta early and then was just eating noodles. But the appetizers were also delicious - the cauliflower with mascarpone cheese might have been my favorite part of the meal.

Went for lunch by myself and sat at the bar. Ordered the restaurant week special and it was wonderful. Portions weren’t tiny just cause of the deal and the food was all amazing. Meatballs to start, curly pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe (!!!), and an olive oil cake with pears. I ate every last bite. Great cocktails too!

I might recommend La Pecora Bianca to young people - not old! The place was very lively and full!
I arrived before my guests and turned down a table for us next to a group of 4 women who were extremely loud - laughed a lot but still very noisy. We were given a table in the middle of the room which was better but certainly not quiet. I won't be going back, but my younger guests might.

This dinner was my first at La Pecora Bianca, and I can't wait to go again! The food was excellent, and the service was as well. My server was #13 Ash Y, and he was very attentive. Everyone on the staff wished me a nice evening as I left the restaurant. A very good feeling. thank you so much!

Very good overall. Vodka felt watered down, on the other hand, the pasta I ate with mushrooms and arugula
was among the best I've eaten for a long time I lived in Italy and think I know what good pasta is.

Service: a bit too anxious to scoop up our plates once we appeared to be done but overall pleasant.

Went for an early dinner on a Saturday night. there were only a couple other tables occupied. We sat there for 15 minutes before someone came over and offered us water. The restaurant was empty! The hostess also told my friend to move her coat from the bench because of other patrons when there were legit 2 other tables filled across the room.

Food: the food is always solid, but I hate that you can’t add chicken or another protein to it. Pretty sure that’s standard.

I had a Restaurant Week lunch here and thought the menu had a good variety of options and the first course portions were large, so needed a "To Go" bag. The food was excellent. I had the meatballs and the dorade. If dining solo, the bar is not only large, but the chairs are high back, so comfortable. Service was good and friendly.
