I’m so used to seeing dark wood in restaurants lately due t that I was extra thrilled to walk into La Pecora Bianca and see light wood and mint green. I was there with some family friends who were visiting from Georgia, and found it to be the perfect place for a young couple, like my beau and I, to take two of my parents’ buddies. First of all, it’s Italian. You can’t really go wrong there – everybody loves Italian. It’s also lively without being overly loud and has a good cocktail menu.
La Pecora Bianca isn’t the kind of place you’d identify as your favorite, but it’s a solid, pretty option in the NoMad area when you want Italian but don’t want to deal with Eataly. I thought the meat and cheese plate was on the small side (Albert said the same about his swordfish entrée), but I enjoyed my coffee and thought the fresh tagliatelle with beef and pork bolognese was simple but quite tasty – definitely something I would get again. I also like that you could get a glass and a half portion of wine. Not sure it actually saved money, but I like having the option.
Go to this place to enjoy the cute atmosphere and the pasta, which is definitely the star of the menu.
