I like a restaurant where they make food better than I do. Both pastas-pomodoro and mixed mushrooms were excellent ingredients but lacked what a special chef can do. When the mixed mushroom pasta tastes like my attempt( garlic and oil cooking,add the mushrooms,then toss over the pasta and sprinkle some parsley on), I am disappointed. Why go out? Then w... More

Selected Bianca for a recent dinner for its ability to please vegetarians and carnivores together. And it did in fact please. Beverage service was initially very slow, but got better as the meal went on. The place is tiny, I was crammed in a corner, and cash only is inconvenient, but man it was worth all the minor inconveniences. The... More

We read reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. It's a very small restaurant so get there early (not sure if they take reservations). It's cash only so make sure you have money with you. We split an order of eggplant parmigiana and an order of calamari as our appetizers. They were both excellent. Large portions. In... More

A group of us stopped for dinner here to celebrate my partner's birthday. It was a very busy night but we got a table quite quickly. The service was fairly efficient and the food was outstanding. Some of the best sausage and pepper pasta I've ever had. The staff were very kind and brought over a slice of the delicious... More

Had a great meal here. Friday evening @ 7pm. I think we must have been lucky because we walked right in. Had a big bowl of mussels to share and seafood pasta and steak as entrees. Two soft drinks and the bill was $45 without the tip. The food was excellent and the service good. Yes, this is a tiny... More

The wait time to be seated at 7pm was quoted as 45 minutes, ended up being an hour and 15 mins - pretty close. The host is very kind and engaging and will come find you at the bar next door... and yes, he does remember exactly who you are and what you look like and what order you are... More

We were celebrating a friend's birthday. Bianca serves authentic Italian food at very reasonable prices. For appetizer, we ordered fried artichokes and vegetable lassagna.The 4 half artichokes were ridiculous, totally burned and very small in size, a total 8,50$ waste. However the vegetable lassagna was adequate for an appetizer. We ordered the fish stew, which was tasty and substantial, as... More
