Beyond words, an exceptional gem!

Being of Italian heritage, I am extremely critical of most Italian restaurants and find most adequate at best. Therefore, you have to understand that when I say this could be the best Italian restaurant I've been to outside of Italy, it speaks to just how good this restaurant truly is.

After reading the reviews of Bianca's and thinking we'd have a very memorable meal based on them, we decided to give it a try. Sadly we were a bit disappointed. First the good things, the décor was OK, the restaurant was very clean and the staff was very well trained. Kudos to their trainer, they did a very good job.... More

Our first visit. We're new tithe area. It's close to our home. Decided to sit in bar area as the atmosphere was nice and full of patrons. Bartender/waitress was great! We shared a half carafe of house red wine, zucchini appetizer, and a white pizza that we added marinara to. Service was great! Food was delivered promptly and was delicious.... More

We so enjoyed our dinner .....My dining partner enjoyed the chicken marissa. The meat was cooked to perfection, sundried tomato, goat cheese, and a mild delicious cream sauce. I loved the lobster stuffed ravioli with shrimp, served with asparagus and a smooth creamy sauce....that was different from my dining partner's sauce....that part, I loved.....they both had distinctive flavors that were...

Not close to the standard "Italian" fare. All is fresh made to order, hot and yummy. Chicken or veal are the two main dished, but with different sauces and pasta. I haven't tried the pizza, but looks yummy. Seafood dishes are popular. Good value for a night out with your Sig Other. Biscuits and salad come with entree so that... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. There are good things but the bad out weight them. Tonight was no different. Our server has no knowledge of wines. I ask for an oaky wine and have the worse thing ever!! The bread and butter.. Bread cold butter colder. Can't spread cold on cold.. Dinner special.. Awful. Salmon was so... More

Dear SBear: We strive on a daily basis to provide exceptional food and service. I only wish management had known from the get-go that you were unhappy . Specifically, you said the rolls were cold. Our rolls are baked in a 600 degree oven and moved immediately to a bread warmer as soon as they are done. We will look... More

The Main Dining area on the left is a little crowded and noisy, but the aux. dining area on the right is perfect; especially the hi-tops.

I have eaten at Bianca's many times and always have a wonderful experience. The food is fantastic and the service is even better. Here's a tip. Start with one on myra's desserts first because you might not have room at the end.
