Fantastic! It was like being in Sicily. Authentic Sicilian food. Ambience and service were top notch. And unbelievable value to boot. Piccola has become our go to Italian restaurant in the city. Seriously, go there. You won't be disappointed. We had the fritta misto, eggplant parmesan, and fried octopus appetizers. Then we split the carbonara. Too much food! An inexpensive, delicious Sicilian red rounded out the meal. Coffee and tiramisu for dessert to complete a fabulous night.

cozy Italian restaurant off the main Soho drag. Space is tight and noise level is energetic. Pasta portions are enough to share with 2 or 3 as appetizers. Feels authentic as most of the waitstaff are Italian.

My favourite italian restaurant in the city! I met thr frendliest staff and ate the most amazing food! I celebrated my britday there during the weekend and I had an awesome time! I also love it during the week to bring a date and enjoy a relaxed environment. A prefect place fo every occasion! A bit more animated in the weekend and relaxed during the week! Amazing!

Superb food and great service. Restaurant was way too cramped with seats by the window where it was noticeably colder than other parts of the restaurant. Forced to move table multiple times to allow other guests to be seated/get up.

The food is réal authentic Sicilian cuisine. Difficult to find even in New York City.However, thé restaurant is too noisy and the tables too crowded. Go for the traditional and inventive dishes.

I thought food would be good , it was alright. Ordered a drink which never show up and it's also added to my bill. I kindly asked them to remove it. Not an issue. But obviously a busy restaurant. You sit too close with other people. I don't recommend if you like the idea of having personal space.

Devo dire che sono rimasto veramente contento sia del cibo che dell’accoglienza, il locale piccolo ma bello il personale gentile e parlano in italiano. Lo consiglio e consiglio il pitto di pasta con il sugo con i ricci di mare. Favoloso come piatto

The food--burrata, eggplant parmagian, and buccatini--was absolutely delicious.
The service was friendly and efficient.
Tables are situated very close to each other, so get ready to get cozy with your fellow patrons.
I will be back!

A phenomenal, cozy, yet vibrant Soho restaurant with reliably fantastic Sicilian food and just as reliable great service. It is always a pleasure to dine there and try another of the many delicious menu choices or daily specials. The grilled octopus is outstanding.

We come from New Haven CT with a large Italian population. We have made 15 trips to Italy, so we know Italian cuisine very well. The food here is very good. The prices are very reasonable. The owners and staff work very hard to make the evening memorable. They succeed!
