We love this restaurant. We've been there many times and it is always just perfect. I took my cousins from Rome there last year, and they also felt like we do, that it really is a touch of Italy in New York.

This is a teeny tiny place with fantastic pasta served in the pan! Make a reservation as seating is limited.
WELL WORTH IT!!!! My new favorite place!

I absolutely love Piccola Cucina. It is a tiny restaurant with the tables practically touching but 100% authentic and absolutely amazing. Our waiter Piero was incredible.

Authentic Italian that is extremely tasty, knowledgable and kind staff that makes you feel like you are at a mom & pop shop in Italy and overall incredible atmosphere.

We had the meatballs, rice balls, Cesar salad and ravioli and everything was DELICIOUS.

I would recommend making reservations.

Most amazing staff and food. Small, cozy spot. Made reservations for Saturday night. Place was full the whole time. Authentic food from the beef carpaccio bruschetta to the pasta dishes. Staff was amazing. Wine was great. The place has true character. Don’t miss this spot. But do make a reservation.

Had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation time & the space is very small could not move in or out of our table. The food was okay and service was fast once you are seated but overall would not return.

I’m a frequent visitor at Piccola Cucina, but it was my first time at the Prince St. branch. The food was impeccable as always, but my friend and I waited for our bruschetta to come out for 40 minutes and another hour for our 2 pastas. In fact, several parties who got seated after us got their food way before us and left before us. I don’t know what happened, but I was disappointed.

Even with reservation waited half an hour for the table, then I got squeezed into a narrow corner, next was offended by a woman, who fought for some space. Finally left before ordering dinner.

What a pity. The last couple of years when I visit Piccola Cucina people there werd friendly and the food excellent. But now they destroying the atmosphere in this really nice place as they overcrowded the restaurant.
