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

    We ate here because we had a concert at nearby Madison Square Garden. The reviews I read were all good and the menu was broad enough for even the pickiest eaters. We were not disappointed. We had a great meal, good service, etc. We would definitely come back. It was very busy so make sure you make a reservation.

    Delicious food, good service. My only complaint was the background music, I wasn’t a fan. The restaurant was empty, so the music seemed too loud. I asked for it to be turned down, but they changed the soundtrack instead of turning it down. Probably would have been fine if there were more people and more ambient noise. Still- great food. A little pricey but on par for a hotel.

    We had eaten many times in the restaurant that preceded Trattoria Bianca in this space pre-Covid, but this was our first trip to this space post-shutdown. The staff was pleasant and extremely attentive, and our food was really (really) good. I can already see that TB will become one of our regular stops in the City. Check it out!

    The hostess seated us next to another occupied table when 80% of the restaurant was empty. Food was decent but overpriced. The waiter was great. However it did take a very long time to get our check and pay.

    The restaurant is dated but well kept. Service was good, server was attentive. Food was just average. My motto is if you get great bread you'll get a great meal. The bread was less than stellar, dry and flavorless. Charcuterie platter had low quality prosciutto and pepperoni not Soprosetta as shown on the menu along with 4 tiny pieces of cheese. The veal picatta was tough and flavorless. If you're looking for great Italian look elsewhere

    This restaurant is in the lobby of the New Yorker Hotel. It is not fancy in its décor and the prices are not cheap but not expensive either. It is good if you are going to a MSG event and want good food and fast service. The staff is quick, efficient and they move fast.

    The food was not great, a tiny step up from an Olive Garden. It all tastes like it were from a microwave. There were homeless people invading the restaurant from the hotel entrance and refused to get out.

    Ate at this restaurant before attending an event at the Garden. The food and service were very good. The fried calamari was very tender and the salmon was delicious. The price was definitely worth it. Also had a dirty vodka martini, which was good.

    It was extremely brightly lit, not what you expect of an Italian restaurant. It looked like a diner. We were the first ones in the restaurant at 5:30 (we had to eat early due to having broadway tickets). The service was amazing and attentive and the food was delicious! I wonder if they lose customers based on the ambiance. The lights were so bright. They finally dimmed them a bit around 6:30.
