Fancy looking Italian restaurant that falls short of its looks to present a bland menu full of deja vu plates. I ordered an appetiser of roosted cauliflower which came too cold to be enjoyable, besides the fact that the portion was way too big to...be an entrée. It killed my appetite for a pasta pommodoro that was OK but I was just too full to eat it with gusto. Correct service. Prices are what is expected in NY.More

I head to one of the Pecora Bianca locations around the city for dinner every few weeks or so. This was my first time visiting this location and it was my first time going for lunch. The staff was very warm and welcoming. My father...and I had an excellent lunch. He had the pre-fixe menu and I tried the burger for the first time. It was perfectly cooked medium but I didn't enjoy the fries much. Just my preference. Not a huge fan. The appetizers and my fathers pasta were excellent. Pecora has one of my favorite bolognese's in the city. I will definitely visit again.More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends and we’re not disappointed! We have two daughters, ages 9 & 11. We spent the day in the city and were staying at an apartment a few blocks away from the UES location. We started with zuchinni fries,...fried calamari/shrimp and shaved Brussels sprouts salad. All were great and very tasty. They also came out quite quickly. The only negative thing I can say about the starters were that most of the fried calamari/shrimp dish were onions and potatoes. They were delicious but we only got two shrimp pieces. Would have liked more seafood for the price. For a main we got Rigatoni with Bolognese for the girls to split. They were happy to switch to the rigatoni for the kids. I got the sausage and broccolini pasta with pesto- it was delicious. My husband got the bronzino. It was all delicious! We opted out of dessert- we had our sights on Anita Gelato across the way and it was amazing! Also got a dessert crepe down the road that was expensive but tasty.More

I happen to be in a bus right now going to work at a sleep away camp in the middle of nowhere!! I was in the city all week and so it is very crazy that I’m now going to be in the woods and...if I grow a ton of hair all over and get three feet taller someone may thing I am Bigfoot!! I am going to be turning 20 in four days and I’ll be at the camp and so we had to celebrate early and so we went last night!! We made a reservation and ate outside with our little poodle!! The waitress was from Ireland and her accent reminded me of Barry Keoghan if it was a lady’s voice!! I got the curly pasta with house-made sausage and broccoli and it was unbelievable!! I’m a big fan of sausage pasta and it tasted exactly as it should!! The waitress has very good ears because she showed us the results from her audiology tests!! I am obviously joking and she overheard it was my early birthday and so they gave me free ice cream!! I didn’t have anything to complain about and it brought my joy!!More

Our son used to live in Manhattan and now lives in Brooklyn picked La Pecora Bianca because it was near our hotel and he had been here numerous times previously. For starters we chose the Local Burrata with cherry tomatoes, basil pesto, and country toast,...good choice. For mains, my wife selected the Scallops with summer squash, pine nuts, capers, golden raisins. She really enjoyed it. I opted for the Linguine Puttanesca with squid ink pasta, shrimp, and chili. Bursting with loads of flavors. All their pastas are made inhouse. We also had the Brussels Sprouts with rosemary honey, lemon, and chili flakes, great side dish. I truly recommend La Pecora Bianca with 3 locations in Manhattan for a memorable dining experience.More

We had lunch here and were satisfied. The place was bright and airy. Service and food were very good. My squid ink linguine (pictured) certainly tasted a lot better than it looked. Recommended.

We were here for lunch and left 100% satisfied. We shared Calamari for an appetizer. Crispy, well seasoned perhaps a bit ‘light’ in terms of quantity. For main courses; the Scallops were well prepared and presented, decadent. The Branzino was excellent. The two salads; Toscano...with Chicken and Brussel Sprouts with Salmon were very good. Nice sized portions well presented. The Espresso was outstanding. Attentive service. Acoustics are not great. Will be back.More

This restaurant has a lovely, airy feel but we ended up having to scream to hear each other. My friend's Apple watch vibrated a few times to warn of dangerous decibel level. The experience of dining seemed chaotic and forced. Our entrees came while we...were still waiting our salad starters. Then the staff kept checking to see if everything was ok. Very annoying.More

Three people dining. Two main courses (a burger and a linguine), three first courses (autumn salad, fried calamari, faro salad), two glasses of wine (we wanted Peroni beer, but they had run out), one tiramisu (large enough for 4 people, only one ate)...$217 with tip....Dishes were pretty good, except the clam linguine; the clams were tough and I suspect were the cause of my stomach issues the next morning. Server was efficient and pleasant, atmosphere nice. You decide if this is a good value.More

We got a table despite no reservation, which is a sign of great service. The service was excellent all night long. The burrata for starter was nothing short of perfect. The pasta dishes were also very tasty ( should have been at least one spicy...veggie dish though). The prosecco was amazing. I do understand why locals recommended this restaurant.More

I booked this restaurant as an anniversary meal for my wife who is gluten-intolerant. We ordered dishes based on the written ingredients as stated in the menu. The waiter also asked if either of us had any food allergens to which we replied yes, gluten....We were then surprised (to put it mildly) to find that when my wife's dishes arrived both contained additional ingredients not listed in the menu, both of which had gluten. Now my wife is just gluten-intolerant but if this had been given to somebody who was celiac this could have had very serious consequences for that individual. The establishment should ensure that a) their menus actually state all the ingredients in a dish and b) that their staff are trained to ensure that someone who states they have an intolerance of gluten is not then given food containing gluten. This is basic food safety.More

An unrushed lunch oasis near United Nations building and Midtown Manhattan. We happened upon it and were so pleasantly surprised. Italian is their cuisine; however, our lunch choices weren't typical "Italian"--brussels salad with salmon, strip steak and the burger. All were good. Service was impeccable!...Loved the vibe. Our absolute favorite was the fried zucchini appetizer!More

There are waiters. And hosts. And then….. there is STEPH FROM MIAMI!!!!!. the warmest, friendliest, most natural, most customer service oriented person you have ever met. She made our dinner super enjoyable. Gracious. Funny. Hospitable. She just “gets it”. Will be the reason we return....Not to mention that the pasta was delicious. And overall level of staffing was great. Try the Black Manhattan cocktail too!More
