Brunch at Bianca: A Slice of Italy in The Desert

EatPost Category - EatEat - Post Category - Eating OutEating Out

All these places that claim to be authentic and then end up being just another average restaurant with a snore-worthy menu, sigh. Bianca is a very pleasant surprise to the scene.

As a family of 4 with a serious fabless for Italian cuisine, we were excited to brunch out.  And since this restaurant prides itself on delivering ‘Grandma’s Cuisine’, we decided to bring… wait for it… Grandma (all the way from Europe)! The name of the restaurant is actually named after Fabio and Francesco’s mother, Bianca.

Okay… So what did we eat? A lot, of course, anything else would be silly. But let’s break it down.

We started our brunch off with the house ‘Burrata’, which is basically a mozzarella with a soft, drizzly centre and it’s to die for. This one was served in a beautiful glass jar and tasted like heaven drizzled with olive oil. Make note mamas, this cheese is made in-house from Italian milk produced by the Bianca family farm –  arriving that same morning (the carbon footprint debate is all on them) but holy burratamoly… it is good! So good that we’re now craving it BIG time and will be visiting again soon for our fix…

We then went on to devour Spaghetti Vongole (pasta with small clams) and penne Bolognese (pasta with meat sauce for the kids).  And while we were digesting it all; we were in for a surprise. Bianca has it’s very own pizza oven from Naples. You heard us, a pizza oven from Naples in Italy. Frankly, we can’t even remember the name of our pizzas but they were all excellent.

To summarize it all we would say; Try Bianca, bring grandma and just stuff your face. What is the alternative?!

Honest disclaimer: If you want strong grape in order to enjoy your lunch or dinner- this won’t be your place for now. BUT, if you want to eat family style, rustic and super tasty Italian food; just go. Buon Appetito!

Bianca is at The Beach, JBR and at Box Park
