Amazing Gnocchi – I am a gnocchi snob and have searched up and down for the best gnocchi. Bianca's melt in your mouth, and the sauce is creamy and delicious. Plus, the price is downright affordable. I feel so lucky that Bianca's exists and it is my favourite restaurant in Manhattan.
lovely italian gem – I just found this place over the weekend and can't wait to get back. The food was simple, basic, homestyle italian food. Delicious and very well priced. The host George was a riot too. Really a great restaurant.
It's Like Eating At Italian Grandma's House - Authentic all the way – BIANCA is a little tucked away secret. They don't take reservations so you better get there no later than 7:30 whihc is exactly what we did. It was THE BEST italian I have had out in a long while at this price. My husband and and I FEASTED for less than $70.00. You know the place is great when you talk about it a year later and still go back. Our meal would have been even cheaper if we knew that the portions were big enough to share. The place looks like an old Italian grandmas livingroom converted into a tiny restaurant with candle light, exposed brick. It's a bit cramped but adorable and the food is AMAZING for the money. It's a great place to TEST a date. If she loves it you know she's a keeper -- a person with depth and soul who can appreciate authenticity over a scene. The service is just as good as I have had at placed 3 times the price. Excellent VAlentine's Day choice - just get there very early. Line is out the door.
Authentic Italian, Good Food, Low Prices, Very cozy – I was so impressed with this authentic Italian restaurant. The portions are huge, the service fast and friendly, and the prices are unheard of. In an area of pretentious and often underwhelming restaurant choices, Bianca was a refreshing change of pace. Extremely cozy, if not a little claustrophbic!
try out – good italian food, cheap prices and cozy atmosphere. cash only, so keep the jacksons on hand.
Perfect Winter Spot – I used to work in the area and would come by a few times a week for the fantastic tagliatelle bolognese. The staff is wonderful and makes the place feel like home. Nice wine list, with a few reasonably priced bottles.
Cozy and tasy – This is a great neighborhood restaurant where the food is very good, as is the service and atmosphere. There was a short wait when we arrived so we went next door to the bar for a drink. When a table became available, the man who greeted us at the restaurant came to the bar to let us know our table was ready. We had a nice bottle of wine recommended by our server and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The prices are great, too.
Perfect – My boyfriend and I discovered this out-of-the-way, cash-only, cozy spot and have been reluctant to tell friends and family about it as we want it to remain our little secret! It's as close to perfect as I've found in Manhattan: romantic setting, friendly owner and wait staff, reasonably priced wine list and some of the best home-cooked Italian food I've ever had (I highly recommend the gnocci and the lasagna and the specials are often quite good). It's truly a hidden gem, and one I keep going back to at least twice a month even though it's not at all convenient to my work or home. It's just that worth it.
Accomodating and Delicious – Went here for a friend's birthday--the staff was extremely accomodating: reservations for 10, kept her b-day cake cold, and then brought it out with candles. I'm a vegan---but all of my friends love their cheese, meats, & seafood and they thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Cute and Cozy.
Under $15 and downtown – The food was not particularly noteworthy, but I was happy to be there. Most entrees are $15 or less. The portions are huge -- neither my date or I could finish our portions. There's no bar, so expect to give your name and then have a drink at Voon next door or possibly at Manhatta. The decor is country-house charm, though there's one unfinished wall (of exposed brick), which needs some covering. The tables are too close together, but the crowd noise manages to create some privacy.
