Having read reviews on Bianca before travelling to NYC I was very excited and the place managed to exceed my expectations! The owner is a lovely man and although there's a wait he sends you to the bar next door to have a drink while you wait. The food was AMAZING, the best pasta I have ever tried! If you... More

I went for an early dinner after a matinee performance up at the Cort. The waiting staff were incredibly friendly, they let me choose my seat and didn't try to rush me out. I had the deep-fried ravioli to start, which was stunning and served with delicious, generously portioned stracchino cheese. I'd read great reviews about their lasagne and I... More

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
