Wonderful! Great food great service. Amazing pasta
Absolutley lovely dinner! The food and service was amazing and will be on my list for future NYC visits.
Todo excelente, ambiente poco pequeño y ruidoso (bien napolitano)
Disappointed - this restaurant had very good reviews so I was expecting a lot but it was kind of dumpy. Food was good but not special.
Excellent restaurant , nourriture excellente et petit prix
The food was excellent. The service was impeccable, friendly waitress/waiters. I would definitely come back again.
Great food - superb service - extremely almost painfully loud though.
This has changed since our last visit. Yes it is small and intimate sitting on top of other diners but the place has turned into a bit of a bazaar; lights flashing up and down, 80’s music blaring out (I mean loud) and food has gone from amazing to average. This was a little gem which has changed for the worst.
Loud but enjoyed bubbly atmosphere
Food very good
Great food in a small space where tables are very close. Excellent service. Noisy due to the limited area.
The Piccola Cucina Enoteca restaurant was very crowded.
The food was supposed to be Sicilian. But having been to Sicily just 4 weeks before, it was not.
My meat Lasagna had very little meat and was a little blah.
Sicily is know for very good large canoli. Theirs were the small ones like one would get in Northern Italy.
Finally, they kept turning up the music so loud that every one had to really scream to hear your neighbor across from you. I don't mean the normal restaurant volume, I mean LOUD.
I would not recommend this restaurant for Sicilian or any other Italian food. There are better choices.
My meal at Piccola Cucina was one of the best 2 or 3 meals of my life, and I have eaten at many of the top rated restaurants in the world. I don't want to spoil the experience for you though, so I would simply say, go!
We had a great meal at Piccola Cucina. Very authentic!
Love, a small gem. Excellent cuisine.
Visited this restaurant after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. The food and atmosphere were to die for, very cosy but authentic Italian food. loved the experience.
We had a large party and ordered a variety of dishes. “Best lasagna I’ve ever eaten”, “Best ravioli I’ve ever eaten” were just a couple of comments from our group! Excellent Caesar salad, excellent bruschetta and excellent cianti! Wonderful service...they even joined us in a few songs:)
Great authentic Italian food served by friendly and accommodating staff. Go and enjoy.
Had a great birthday there.
Had a small table, It was very busy. The service was great, the meals outstanding. Good quality, noodles were handmade with great sauces. We will come back.
Great food, great service, great place....just very cosy inside as it is a very small place! But worth it for the great Italian food!
Great food and lovely authentic feel... but very small and crowded so you have squeeze in and not stay too long!
Delicious and different pasta dishes. Great appetizer. Amazing vibe. Loved everything about it. Can't wait to go back.
Absolutely great, good food and great fun.
What an amazing restaurant! Went there for a nice dinner with my wife and so enjoyed the food, service and overall experience. We will definitely be back.
Outstanding food and service. Will definitely visit again. Best Italian food ever.
The food here is beyond superb. This is the quintessential neighborhood find that boasts the best food at reasonable prices with patrons packed shoulder to shoulder without a vacant chair.
Excellent service and value for money. Will be back
This was our first visit to Piccolo Cucina Enoteca and our party of six enjoyed it very much. It is a tiny restaurant so not the kind of place you want to hang around in after eating. It is pretty much a no nonsense..glass of wine, order, eat and run kind of place. The food is very good and I loved our waiter from Napoli...not too far from Sicily anyway.
The venue is extremely small and cramped. We felt rushed to order. The eggplant rolls were not made the way the menu specifies. They are filled with pasta vs ricotta. The main staff all speak Italian. Cooks are not Italian. Appears to have regulars and locals as guests.
First time we’d been there after reading great reviews on Tripadvisor. Staff were all really friendly, food was excellent and the atmosphere very warm. Tables placed very close together meant that chatting with other diners added to the ambiance. Would definitely go back again, and recommend to others.
Such a fun and cozy restaurant! The eggplant pasta is AMAZING!!
Tiny space so the cold night made it a bit chilly at our table near the door...but the staff was very aware and accommodating, very kind. Food was excellent.
My favorite Italian restaurant in New York!
A must try
The food and service were great. The tables are packed into the small restaurant, so it’s a little hard to get around. But we had a great dinner.
I’m not even finished eating; I HAD to write this. I couldn’t wait. The service is friendly, inviting. The environment is loud but comfy, close. The food is inexpensive and impeccable! Cooked to perfection and the cook himself was right behind me, cooking, enjoying himself in all his glory on a busy Monday night. I made a reservation but still had to wait; it was a full house. But they served me complimentary Processo for the wait. I had arancini and lasagna. I highly recommend and will return to try more on the menu with my friends!
Great restaurant. Food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely be back.
Amazing experience! Food is a 10! Service is outstanding!
Best restaurant in NYC.
Our first time at Piccola Cucina and had a very enjoyable dinner. Food-wise the highlight for us was the Octopus Caprese appetizer - it was just perfect and delicious.
Delicious food, nice wine pairing, great personal service.
Amazing and authentic pasta and you can watch the chef prepare your food! Great service as well!
Great lunch menu, all the pasta dishes are $10!
Unreal. That’s all there is to say.
