This Osteria was recommended by my friend Sherry after we had been to an Italian wine tasting at Aster Wines a few blocks away. We arrived in time to beat the crowd. It soon became obvious why it was so popular. I started with the Passatelli In Brodo soup (breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, spaghetti in chicken broth) for my entree Tagliolini... More

No bookings. Cash only. That's easy to sort out. Bring cash and get there early. Limited range but seriously cheap wine $24 for Falanghina. Pastas are $11.50. Bit more for seafood. Try the gnocchi. Try the caprese salad the mushroom fettuccine special was so good. And the Tiramisu. Nothing detracts from the experience and the bill does not hurt. 10... More

Classic Italian food with a small twist. Flavours of dishes we set were excellent. The staff were quick to turn tables over bug not in, a rush you out the door situation. The fruit to misto was very flavoursome, and lasagna was very rich, full of flavour and satasfying. Very very busy. Go early.

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
