    Quaint and delicious

    The lasagna is the best I've had, romantic space, cozy. Definitely try the tiramisu or cake with mascarpone for dessert

    One of the best in Manhattan!

    My boyfriend took me here on our second date and we've gone back about 10 times in 5 months...the food here truly is amazing. It reminds me of the real italian cooking you get in Italy. If the wait is an hour just go next door to the bar and the host will bring you an appetizer if you'd like...The atmosphere is romantic and quaint, the service is pretty decent, and the prices are the same as your typical menu in Italy. 8-10$ pasta dishes! The gorgonzola gnocchi is to die for...and the tiramisu is their own delicious recipe! One of the most traditional italian restaurants i've been to in Manhattan!

    Great Value

    Anytime we want to have good pasta and not spend a fortune we think of Bianca. we have dined here many times and it has always been great. If you are on a budget share an appetizer and have one entree and you will be very happy. My favored is the lasagan and the pasta bolognese. For the value you cannot go wrong!

    Disappointing

    Food was cold and undercooked, service was slow, hands down the worst restaurant I've been to in NYC.

    Amazing every time!

    This restaurant is lovely. I went here for my first date with my boyfriend and had an amazing time. I've been back several times since. The atmosphere really sets the mood -- it is very cozy. A candle was placed at every table. Right when we walked in, the owner greeted us and brought us to our table...talk about service! But besides the romantic decor and wonderful service, the food is SO GOOD! I still can't believe how inexpensive the meals are. I recommend the Gnocco Fritto for an appetizer. Their lasagna is to die for...I tried Ravioli with Butter & Sage once (very tasty!) but always go back to the Lasagna. Most entrees are around 9 dollars, and wine is reasonable as well. Just remember to bring cash. Overall, my favorite restaurant to go on a date, before the theater..amazing every time!

    Good value

    Nice little place for dinner. The girlfriend and I came here based on menupages reviews, and I was not disappointed. The Gnocco Fritto was very tasty - we both enjoyed it quite a bit. I got the spinach salad, the g/f got the mesclun salad. I was pretty happy with mine, the g/f felt hers was too bitter (I tried it and disagreed). For the entree, I got the ravaoli with butter and sage, and was very pleased. The g/f got the lasagne, and this was also very tasty. The dessert was an 'interpretation' of tiramisu, which was okay, but NOT actually tiramisu. I feel like there should have been more coffee flavor. The plating of the food was excellent and appetizing. The service was absolutely stellar - our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. One quibble is that the tables are too close together, making me feel a tad claustrophobic, with the waiters leaning over me to attend to other diners and having almost no elbow room. Overall, I felt like this was a terrific value, with fantastic service and a good atmosphere, though I wish there was more space. I would return.
