    La Cucina Piccola (LCP) is our favorite Italian restaurant in the entire area. We have been dining at LCP for years. Everyone is treated like family in a comfortable, casual setting. Innovative, great food with large portions and moderate prices. BYOB and they have good wine glasses. The menu is excellent and has many standouts although we frequently order daily specials. Tonight was branzino filet over white cannelloni beans, spinach, chorizo, and tomato. And, a customized version substituting veal for branzino. Substitutions and special dietary needs are readily met, especially since everything is made to order. There is even an excellent prix fixe menu weekdays until 6PM – a three-course meal for less than $30! Ordering to take out is also available. Best to call the restaurant directly and pick it up yourself. Reservations are ESSENTIAL, especially on weekends. Three couples came in without a reservation and, since the restaurant was fully booked, politely turned away. Very highly recommended.

    We came for the early bird dinner. The service and food were wonderful, as they always are. The value is excellent, the selections are varied, and the portions are generous. We highly recommend La Cucina Piccola.

    As a long time customer, I can honestly say that neither I nor my friend(s) have ever had a meal we didn’t thoroughly enjoy! The portions are large and well worth the prices charged. The service is great and servers are all knowledgeable and friendly. It’s a fantastic local restaurant for me and I heartily recommend it to all.

    My fiancé and I took my mom out for dinner. This is the first time we’ve been to La Cucina Piccola and will be back! The staff was very friendly and efficient. We ordered from the pre-fix “early” menu and were very impressed. My mom and I had a minestrone style soup and flounder Francese which came with mashed potatoes and vegetables. And we had gelato for dessert. Food was delicious. The total was about $25 per person. We were all very happy with the experience and look forward to coming again.
