For the 2020 season, we welcome back Chef Philip Guardione and his Sicilian kitchen, Piccola Cucina. Philip cooks authentic Sicilian food which is an amalgam of Italian cuisine influenced by all the cultures that found Sicily as their crossroads. Simple, fresh ingredients authentically prepared suit the local environment of Red Lodge.

At Ox Pasture X Piccolo Cucina, we are at the heart of Red Lodge’s artisan food scene, the locally raised world class beef is featured alongside produce and herbs raised in area farms. We work directly with the local farmers and ranchers to obtain the freshest and most seasonally appropriate ingredients.

Took a bit to be noticed and seated, and then to get our drink order taken, but everyone that served us was polite, kind, and personable. You can tell that it's all hands on deck and everyone pitches in where needed. Food was fresh and tasty. Drank a recommended red wine that was delicious. Finished off with a warm and cozy latte. 10 out of 10 would go back again and again.

The staff was wonderful! One can take a quick look on the emblem on the immediate right as you walk in the door that craftsmanship to detail is not there. The paint run on the emblem makes the statement as to the food quality then same. Yuck! We came for lasagna and was told they were out of it. So we ordered spaghetti. The sauce was bland and semi warm, in a small skillet. Not a class act! For the price, and my past experience, this is not authentic of Sicily.

Food and service is amazing! The hostess Ericka is the absolute best - we had only been there a couple of times this summer when we were in town - she remembered what wine we liked and even which tables she sat us previously. Can’t wait to eat here again next year.

One of the best Italian dinners I have had. Great wines, great food and great service. All waitstaff were friendly and easy to speak with--they know the wines, know the food and do a great job of serving. Everyone should have a chance to eat there.

Absolutely fabulous! The food was amazing and the staff was awesome! They were very attentive in a discreet way so as not to be disruptive to the whole dining experience. Kudos to the chef for entertaining the little girl next to us! She even got to go back to the kitchen for a photo op! What I’m trying to say is, you can tell they enjoy what they do and it reflects in the food and their stellar service. The atmosphere is full of energy! I can’t wait to go back when they reopen next year! And if you’re celebrating a birthday... well, I won’t spoil it. Just go and find out for yourself!

We drove to Red Lodge just to eat here. It was my son and his wife’s first time. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and want to go back before they go back to New York. Wish the Gorgonzola ravioli was on the menu. Excellent

Hands down the most memorable, most fun, and most delicious dining experience we've had in 2019/2020. We loved it and hope to return before they close for the season at the end of the month. We will return and make this a regular trip every summer. Thank you, thank you for the joyous evening.

The music was turned up when we arrived. It’s very hard to both enjoy your conversation without yelling and after asking to possibly turn it down a touch, the staff was great.
With that - from the food to the attention of the staff, Amazing! Every time.

I have been to the Ox Pasture three times. The first was absolutely incredible. Since then the quality of the food has gone down. I had the lasagna and it was good. My companions had other pasta dishes and all three described them as “Chef Boyardee” tasting. I tasted them and they were right.

The food and service was excellent. The ambiance was good. Not really my style of decorations but still nice. IMHO. Will we return with out a doubt YES. Would definitely recommend. Was worth the trip from out of town to make a reservation and give it a try. Next trip we are going to take our friends with.
I give it

Another great place to eat in Red Lodge, MT. Food was excellent, generous portions served by great staff. Nice wine list which was pricey compared to the menu. Service is not rushed but the kitchen is fast. Seasonal so move quickly if you want to visit in 2020.
