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

    Great food . But not the best service. Latte tasted like milk was spoiled. They Weren’t that busy and yet they were not paying any attention or even coming to ask us if our food was good. There’s about 6 waiters and only 2 doing their job. Idk they gotta hire better help . The place looked like an upscale diner. Casual jeans and sweats are good here. Not your typical Italian restaurant. Overall not bad but not great either. Getting them to do anything for you or even take the check takes forever. Smh. It’s a bit frustrating. Not enjoyable

    I loved the food and we had great service. The bar area was being used to host a corporate or commercial industry event, and this probably contributed to a slightly higher level of noise than would normally be occurring. That said, staff sat us towards the back (thank you!) and the experience and service was very good. I will return to this restaurant as this was a very good meal and value with top service provision and the convenience of location near to MSG is great!

    When I walked in and saw an empty restaurant in the middle of midtown, right by Penn Station, I should've known it wouldn't have been it's best experience. The waitress server was pretty good but everything else outside of that was not good. None of the food we were able to finish except the crab cake which didn't even taste fresh. Especially for the price that we paid for what we had, I would not suggest.

    Really good scallops and Caesar salad, not enough sauce and too much breading on the chicken parm. Overall very good experience.

    The best dining experience we had in a very long time. If you’re looking to quickly escape NYC’s rush. Come in here for a comfy cozy vibe. It’s all the warm and comforting parts of a diner, but served with yummy Italian food. Officially our new spot!!!

    Excellent spot near Penn station for a business dinner before people head out with easy access to their trains. Servers were amazing, anticipating our needs and just hovering close enough to spot when we were ready for refills on our cocktails or the next course.

    This restaurant is part of a hotel -- and was very close to hotel I stayed at. Waitress was very nice and very honest about what to get/not to get, very helpful. Ordered meatball appetizer and chicken parm and lamb shank mains -- food was okay; not special, but serviceable. Ordered the apple tart for dessert -- would skip that.

    Service was slow and server’s attitude was downright rude,well below what I would have expected,and what I had experienced so far in other establishments.Food was above average, price was overinflated for what I had. Water glasses at start of meal were thrown down, no offer of a dessert or anything else, twice I asked for coffee and was ignored, check and pen were thrown down.It felt like as my wife and I were on our own we weren’t as welcome as the large parties that were in as our server was a totally different person to them,fortunately I won’t be back in NY anytime soon, and even if I was I won’t be back here.

    The restaurant looks like a diner. Our waiter was terrible and took forever to come over! We ordered our food and drinks at the same time because we weren’t sure he would come back. Once the drinks and food came it got better. Our waiter was very abrupt! Anytime we asked for something we got a look. I ordered the shrimp cocktail to start. The shrimp were big and fresh. Then I had the branzino entree. It was really good! I also ordered garlic fries. They came out way later than the meal but were hot and delicious. Overall we had a nice evening(there were 12 of us) but I probably wouldn’t go back. Though it is convenient to Penn Station.

    Most people did like their food, but I ordered the pork chop and it was almost all fat. This was an office party and I didn't want to wait for a new one to get cooked so I just dealt with it. Probably 60% of the chop was fat. I did mention it to my server though, but he didn't really do anything.

    All of us from our work group of 6 were very pleased with our dinner: great service, tasty food, and a great selection of cocktails and wine. We didn't want anything fancy, so this was perfect. It kind of has a diner vibe, and with the proximity to MSG and the Theatre District, lots of people come and go. The meatballs were outstanding as was the beet salad.

    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.
