Afternoon Coffee
Piccolo means small in Italian: here it only refers to our place’ size. poco, ... ma buono !

Like the old Italian say, in food, the emphasis should be on the quality and its goodness, NOT on the quantity, where here, at il Piccolo Ristoro Cafe, we want you to add that quantity on the flavor by making you say, before you leave: poco e giusto... ma molto buono ! (less is better... but very good !)

Il Piccolo Ristoro Cafe offers breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, sandwiches and happy hour. A cozy cafe under the high-line in Chelsea with amazing coffee and great paninis. Our Patio Garden is now open.

this is a great little spot with a gorgeous patio. Great food, self-ordering at counter but servers bring food out. Quick, inexpensive, great menu and feels like a little trip to Europe. Very authentic.

We loved the little garden underneath the newer section of the High Line. It appears that they are still not offering table service, but the service we did receive was receptive (you had to order at the bar). The food offerings were limited, but I did enjoy my meal (gnocci cacio o pepe and the pepper soup). I would go back as I enjoyed the experience overall.

Outstanding food and wonderful atmosphere in the heart of Chelsea. The area has needed Il Piccolo and we are so glad they’ve arrived!

The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is gorgeous. My friends and I sat in the beautiful outdoor garden and already planning to go back. P.s. they make an amazing matcha latte!
