Excellent food, happy atmosphere and warm ambiance. Our party shared a cheese puff, and enjoyed the following entrees; lasagna, seafood stew, and gnocchi. In spite of no reservations, cash only, and a bit on the noisy side we managed to have a good time. Bianca, we'll be back.

I read the glowing reviews here and expected more. I was very disappointed. The food, while cheap in price, was very mediocre. My chicken dish was dried out. The pasta was flavorless. The' ambience' was like eating on a crowded subway at rush hour. I guess this place is for those whom price is the deciding factor. they have names for places like this, McDonalds. That's where you go to save money. This place is just a cut above. Live and learn, and never return. Hey, it rhymes!

Well so it goes, my first time here I really enjoyed the place. Now I realize it was the company, a college student for whom price is the ultimate factor. Like many reviewers here I praised the place in my mind. Tonite I wait outside and the host/owner seems eager to steer me into the bar next door, his most likely, and taking only cash like at the restaurant. I am waiting for someone outside and let him know that that's exactly where I'll stay, much to his frowning disapproval. Then we enter to ear shattering voices bouncing off the walls. We shout to be heard. Then the appetizer, an artichoke salad arrives, full of godamm lemon seeds of the dressing, leaving a foul taste in my mouth as I've crunched down on one after another. I scan the plate for more and assemble a pile and point this out to said owner, who industriously sweeps my plate away, as if I'm to get a replacement salad. None appears. The pasta bolognese arrives and the meat sucks, like hamburger helper or some like boxed garbage. At this point I can't wait to just leave. of course I have been charged for the salad. My friend's buffalo mozzarella is 12$ for 4 small pieces. And the meal is a flop. I cancel plans to take my visiting friend here next week. Well I gave it two chances. I should've quit while I was ahead.

Of all the restaurants in the NYC, little Bianca wins the prize. Small and dark...and yes, perhaps a little loud...but it warms the soul from the inside out. I don't mind the wait (Von, you, too, are a little gem), especially if Fish Stew is on the flip side. Some things are worth the wait. Bellisima.

Bianca is extremely loud. Expect to not be able to hear your date. You must yell at the person you are with in order to hear them. The gnocchi was overcooked. Ravioli was great though. Nice staff but I couldn't even hear what my waitress was saying.

easily one of the best values in the city. the food is great. the place is a little small and tight, but romantic. one of my favorites in the entire city.

One of the best Italian food I ever had. Everything we ordered was delicious..gnocci, spaghetti, mushroom ravioli. To end the dinner with Tirumisu which is to die for. Worth the long wait of about an hour!!
