About Trattoria Bianca
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

Trattoria Bianca Ratings and Reviews
Entrees were pretty terrible. They weren't done poorly enough to warrant sending them back. It just didn't taste very good. Chewy chicken parm. Mushy (almost like a paste) noodles and way too much sauce in my wife's pesto pasta. Sauces were super bland; the marinara in my chicken parm was close to just tomato sauce than a marinara.
Trattoria Bianca is the NYer Hotel and is a gem in a stretch of 8th Avenue that doesn't offer much in the way of good, quick dining. We were due for a Knicks game at the Garden, and this was a convenient option. It was neither crowded nor noisy and there is an entrance to MSG diagonally across the street.
The food is better than average for midtown and the prices are reasonable. The menu is your average pan-Italian without high or low points. Moules frites are more French, but tasty, the pizza margarita competent. The service was attentive.
This was a terrible experience for us, unfortunately. We tried it because it was in the lobby of our hotel, so it was convenient. The hostess has a huge chip on her shoulder. Service was slow, but not terrible. The bread was good, but the cold garnish ruins it. The food was completely flavorless. Waste of time and money.
We found this little gem last year when we looked for a place to eat before a Madison Square Garden show. Everything about this place was "right". Excellent service, food, decent pour drinks, lovely Art Deco ambience, etc. We remembered it this time as we were heading to the Garden again. It was every bit as good! We loved the tomato basil soup and my gnocchi over short ribs with gravy was served in a covered crock which it must have been baked in. My meal was absolutely spectacular. My guy had a beautiful plate of scallops. I remember I'd ordered my dish the first time. We will be back here every time we're in the area!
Trattoria Bianca was a nice restaurant. It is located in the New Yorker. I would have preferred a more "quiet" location, but I certainly cannot blame the restaurant. It is perfect for Madison Square Garden events as it is right there and that was my main focus. For Food, wife ordered the Veal Piccata, which was excellent. A good size portion on top of pasta which was cooked to perfection. I ordered the Seafood Sampler. You received two clams, two oysters, two shrimp, and lump crab. One oyster was bad. Besides that, it was well done and fresh and value wise fair. The Italian bread was great and the hummus brought to the table was delicious. Full drink selection with a some choices as to craft beer. Overall, except for that one oyster (lol), great place for a dinner before an event.
This was a stop for dinner before heading across the street to MSG for a concert. I have eaten here once before and enjoyed it so decided to return. They have a lot of choices on the menu and I would have been happy with just about any of them but I opted to go with the three course choice as it was a great value and I love chicken milanese.
The service was very good, the food was excellent and we ate early enough that the place was still fairly quiet. I would go back here again if I'm going to an event in midtown.
