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

Staff proper but disinterested. Food mediocre lamb shank cold in areas, dried out in others as though it had been quickly microwaved (badly)
We ate here prior to Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden. The restaurant is very near the Garden. Was very busy. Food was okay. Service was okay. Nothing special. Michelle
Menu is typical Italian, with selections that should be acceptable for almost anyone. Prices were actually very reasonable for NYC, and food is very good. Service provided by an elderly gentleman waiter who made sure we were pleased with our meals and was attentive with being overly so. Great location in New Yorker Hotel, which is an art deco masterpiece in the garment district, and across the street from Madison Square Garden.
We had a great experience at Trattoria Bianca. We were sat right on time and had a very nice table near the back of the restaurant. Our server, Constantina, was awesome and you could tell she really enjoys her job because she was very friendly and has a fun personality. She was very attentive to our food and drink needs. Next time we go back, we will ask to sit in her section again.
Great location for dinner before concert at Madison Square garden. Food as service was excellent.
Ladies night out before seeing a relative perform in an off broadway show. Our waitress, Dina, was fantastic, personable and efficient. Food was excellent, served to the table all together and not one mistake in our order. Thank you!
Great location, lots of great dishes on the menu. Wait staff was fun, playful, and very competent. Gets busy very fast after 5 on a Friday, you definitely need a reservation. Very convenient to Madison Square Garden.
For the location, this place isn't half-bad — food, service or price-wise. It's very spacious, although the decor could be warmer. The food was fairly-priced for a restaurant outside of Penn Station/MSG in Midtown, and it was surprisingly not crowded on a Sunday evening. The service was good and attentive, and the wine pour was solid. But the food is definitely sub-par. The pizza is nice and thin, but the sauce lacked flavor and seasoning. My husband didn't feel strongly one way or the other on the tuna salad (basically a nicoise) or the meatball app. Casa Nonna is not far away and serves much better Italian food.
Excellent food in a fantastic location which finished off our holiday perfectly. Beautiful battered cod and pene pesto pasta with a great cheese pizza for my 7 yo. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for art deco surroundings in a restaurant with beautiful food. We will be back i promise!
Mark and Family. Liverpool, England.
Food was good & service excellent. Four people going to hockey so we wanted to be in & out and we were. Good place.
The prix fix lunch offered great choices and good value.
Service and food were very good. I plan to be back.
Restaurant was really nice. We had tickets at msg after dinner. Service was great. We were not rushed at all. We enjoyed our pasta dishes. Very delicious. Big portions too. The pizza was just ok. I would return if I was in area again.
Great location and atmosphere. Service was ok. When I ate here before the linguini was obviously fresh and homemade. This time it looked and tasted like boxed pasta. Still good but not great like I was expecting. A decent place for a business lunch.
Food was great, service-fantastic, very friendly, not rushed, which was great because we were a large party...would highly recommend.
It was okay. I has been better. New waiter. I don't think his head was in the game.
Very good value
We all enjoyed our foods and service was great
The veal was tender
The pasta bollaise was very good as well as the calamari
Nice flavors and service was great!
trattoria bianca is our go-to place from the office for drinks or a nice calm well-served uncomplicated meal
Great food & friendly wait staff
This is the second time we’ve eaten here, while staying at The New Yorker Hotel. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Dimitri was our waiter and he was fantastic. We visit NYC at least twice a year and will absolutely be back.
We met friends for lunch in the city. Trattoria is a block from Penn so convenient
The food was good nice and quiet for conversation comfortable we keep Trattoria in mind when we return to the city.
Everything was delicious and the staff was awesome.
Service was exceptional and one of the best steaks I have had!
Love this restaurant!! Food is always delicious and service is always friendly and wonderful.
Great Italian restaurant - excellent place for lunch.
The food was very good although the portions were very small. Service was very good and place low key and nice. Would have given four stars but what upset me was they had a reservation of 60+ college fraternity kids and instead of putting them together in one section of the restaurant they spread them out all around us and a couple of other two person reservations. The noise level was through the roof and I couldn’t hold a conversation with my daughter who took me to lunch for my 50th Birthday. They put music on their phones and then shouted over their music. The kids also stood in the aisles talking making it impossible to even get to the bathroom. This all could have been avoided by simply putting this group together in one section and the couples in another. Very disappointing way to celebrate my 50th.
The service is great. They are so friendly and welcoming! Our food was fresh, done in a timely manner and the 6 of us all had different things and were all satisfied! I'm a repeat customer and will continue to go here!
We waited for over 25 minutes for someone to clear our table from dinner and ask us about dessert. We waited so long we had to forgo dessert (even though it was included). Our waitress could not have cared any less about her poor service.
Overall it was nice! The food was okay in my opinion though. Nothing special, but the ambiance and everything together made it a good experience. I wouldn’t go there if you’re expecting to wow your palate though.
Casual yet elegant. A great menu with many potentially delicious options - sorry I couldn’t order everything on it! - would need to come back just to try what I couldn’t order..
Excellent! Third time there in two months! Service is great food is good!! Very nice atmosphere!
Great food and specials. Very reasonable prices for manhattan
Our waiter was so friendly and accommodating. He knew we were going to a show so he let us take our time and didn’t try to rush us out. They also had a price fixe menu which was a great deal and the menu was delicious! Would definitely go back here again. Was just around the corner from Hammerstein’s Ballroom. Nice restaurant with great food!
I felt like I was back in Florence or Milan. It’s like a mini vacation 1 block from my office. I don’t know what was better, the food or the staff, both were outstanding. I can’t wait to go back.
First time eating dinner at this restaurant was going directly afterwards to see the Elton John concert. The food was very good from start to finish. It was so close to Madison Square Garden. We definitely go back again!
Great food. Would go back again.staff was friendly and the atmosphere was very nice. I would go back again.
Loved our waiter. He was very sweet and personable
Prime location near MSG so we went on a recommendation from a family member. Found out when we arrived that they have a “concert” menu, so offerings were different from what we expected. But service more than made up for it - our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The calamari- delicious- light and fresh, including the tentacles which in my opinion are the most flavorful but not always available. My husband raved about the cowboy steak and my son ordered a second lobster ravioli to bring home! The bianca pizza was just okay, but the folks at the table that asked our waiter for recommendations were not disappointed. We will definitely be back on a non-concert night.
