Italian
An informal Italian restaurant serving traditional favorites along with excitingly new dishes. Trattoria Bianca is a favorite of locals, business people and travelers in midtown.
Bright and mostly white, it is a sleek reinterpretation of Italian Art Deco along with the owner's collection vintage food and wine posters.
Bianca's menu ranges from a simple bowl of spaghetti carbonara to a Tuscan-style steak and a bottle of old Barolo. Featured dishes: shrimp scampi on soft polenta; frisee salad with fried oysters, poached egg, and pork belly; seafood fritto misto; salmon saltimbocca-style with sage and crispy pancetta; numerous pastas and superb pizzas; Chianti- braised short rib, and lamb shank in rich pan juices. For lunch there are heaping salads and inventive sandwiches using Italian ingredients

    Service was amazing! Everyone was friendly and we had great service. The food however was not good. The pizza is listed thin crust but it’s on a burnt pita bread and the Cesar salad had no flavor. The eggplant tower was tasty but the eggplant wasn’t cooked.. it was still hard in the middle. I would go back to try something else simply because the service was great.

    We had a great dinner at Trattoria Bianca. The food was delicious and our waitress was excellent. She gave us great service and she had an excellent sense of humor. She kept us entertained during the meal as well as giving us excellent recommendations as far as items to order on the menu. We would definitely come back again.

    The food was definitely sub-par. Nothing tasted GREAT; mostly just average. The drinks were ok; asked for a lightly dirty martini and got a martini glass full of olive juice. The server said we could only have bread after we ordered when we had hungry kids; brought cold bread our 15 mins after we ordered.

    Cold staff, no ambiance,looks like a diner with surly staff who look like they would prefer to be anywhere but here. Expensive. Chef obviously good as food good but no customers because of front of house staff. Go elsewhere as too expensive for poor experience. Big portions which can be shared but not explained so creates food wastage. Shameful at these prices. This increases tips I assume but not deserving of anyone except the chef.

    I’m often in Manhattan for work and my go to Italian used to be Casa Nonna until they succumbed to Covid business pressures. I’d never considered Trattoria Bianca, being in the New Yorker and so close to MSG probably made me think it was a tourist trap but today with the bad weather I though “ah let’s try something close to the office”. I’m so glad I did. The friendly vibe from the staff was the most immediate welcome and the food is really good, fresh well cooked and presented and excellent value for its location. Will definitely be returning.

    Quiet atmosphere. They were actively cleaning the restaurant when we arrived at 11:30 opening. STILL cleaning during our 11:45 reservation with very strong smell of Clorox….took away our appetites!

    We chose the venue to be near Penn Station and we were shocked at how good the food was, as well as the serve (Tina ROCKS!). When we sat down, the couple next to us were eating pizzas that looked awful dn they said they were terrible. But our entrees were well-prepared AND delicious. Would definitely go again (and sit in Tina's section) !!!!

    The person who seated us was very rude. When we ordered our wine it was a generous poor. The bread with olive oil to dip was good. However the olive oil was rancid. Nasty tasting. Told the server & he did not replace it. Left a very bad taste in our mouths. The chicken Parmigiano was good. The sauce was a bit sweet. The staff attitude is nor great like we should be grateful they are serving us.
