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

Went with a group for a friend's birthday. The wait staff could not be friendlier or nicer. They went out of our way to make my friend and everyone in our party feel special. The food was very good, especially the inventive appetizers and scrumptious desserts. The entrée portions were large enough that most of us took something home with us and the menu was quite extensive, with something to please everyone. The price was very reasonable for a NY City restaurant too. Our only complaint was that we were seated not far from the kitchen and there was a strange odor coming from the kitchen every now and then (like a cleaning fluid). Not sure what it was, but it wasn't bad enough to ruin our evening!!

They were absolutely amazing! They delivered on their word. We were on tight time constraints and when we let the staff know they were friendlly and made sure we were out on time and did not sacrifice the quality of the experience. Food was amazing! Thank you!

A real pleasure! Super clean, the food was not only delicious but reasonably priced. Dimitri is a great conversationalist and very accommodating. I live in New Jersey I will come here again for a meal when I return to NYC!

Trattoria Bianca is our post-dance class go-to group restaurant. We can always rely on the food and especially the wonderful service.

Great location if you need to be near Penn Station or Macy's (35th & Eighth). Quietly elegant, nicely decorated. I liked the menu choices and enjoyed my chicken dish. My friend had the scallops which she liked too. The house wine was very. And the prices were affordable.

Hard to believe I never knew about this place. A bright light in area with not lots of options. I will be back.

Stopped in for a quick bite after a show on the way home. Decent food, and good service but nothing amazing. Enjoyed the enthusiasm of our waitress. Thanks.

It was a quick stop for a bite. Very conveniently located and very good options for food. Service was ok but not flattering and food was decent. Nothing wowing but would stop in again if in the area

With so few quality dining choices near Madison Square Garde, Trattoria Bianca stands out. The Italian food is prepared well with other options including prime steak. The wine list is reasonable with excellent choices by the glass.

This is not an Italian restaurant, it's a slightly upscale diner in food, service, and atmosphere.

I had the chicken parm which was great, my wife had the strip steak (part of the prix fixed menu) which was also very good and a good deal also. The service was also very good. A nice place to go when your at the Garden for any event.

There are so few good places to eat near Penn Station, so this is a little gem! Make a reservation as it was busy on a Sunday night and walking may be an issue if you are crunched for time, like catching a train, for instance. Noise level was very high, but not distracting.
