The food was wonderful! The Cacio e Pepe was the best I ever had! The ragu tagliatelle was missing something, maybe an acidic element but I think it was just overshadowed by how amazing the cacio was. The server was fantastic, very knowledgeable and attentive and the food came out very fast and steaming hot! Would definitely recommend for a night out.

Best Sicilian food outside Sicily! The arancini was crispy on the outside and full of delight. The seafood was fresh and prepared just right. The cannolis are the real thing. Great Sicilian wine choices, some great vinyards I just do not see elsewhere. The staff are very customer-focused and don't leave you wanting for anything...great buzz to the place!

We went here for lunch. In this age of pandemic, this restaurant is providing excellent food and excellent service. The tables were well spaced from each other, and the staff was attentive to all aspects of service, including their masks at all time. I will not to hesitate to return here very soon for another delicious luncheon experience.

Overall pretty disappointed in how they are handling social distancing. The tables outside were not far enough away. There was a rowdy birthday party seated next to us and we felt very uncomfortable the entire time as those patrons were really drunk and getting up unmasked way too close to our table. Food was great, our server was great, but they need to tighten up on social distancing. They need to cut down on tables to ensure that each table can be at least 6 feet apart.

Although, inside did look perfectly distanced.

I decided to go here after reading all the great reviews to celebrate my friends birthday, but to our surprise, we were both disappointed. I had to return my first dish, due to the amount of salt and the second dish was just okay. The outdoor ambiance was nice.

I loveeeee this place!!! Never disappoints. Went for a girls night dinner and the menu is exceptional. I’m a pescatarian and love their seafood options. The grilled calamari was Delia koi’s steamed spinach side was tasty and not bland or too much oil. I got the grilled swordfish. A little small but with an appetizer it’s perfect. So fresh and clean and just delicious. Staff is wonderful and the outdoor seating is so cozy and a vibe. Highly recommend during this time. I’ve been to many restaurants the last few months and food quality was down but not this place!

Outdoor seating area is spacious. Service is good. Osso Bucco Ravioli with veal sauce was fantastic and I couldn’t help but lop up the remaining sauce with bread. Paccheri with red shrimp and zucchini flowers cooked well and flavorful.

I had a reservation for 8 pm, and we arrived at 8:03, but weren’t seated until 8:25 or so. Also our Parmesan shaker didn’t work but when we asked the waiter for more Parmesan he gave us an unlabeled salt shaker, which we didn’t notice (since it was dark) until dousing our pastas in salt, effectively ruining our meals. I’m sure the pasta would’ve been great otherwise. Ultimately could’ve been a better experience.

I enjoyed the most amazing lunch at Piccola Cucina Estiatorio. I started with the mista salad, which included carrots, tomatoes and a few other special ingredients. I then had the paccheri with shrimp and zucchini ribbons. It may have been the best pasta dish that I've ever eaten. It was served in a skillet and was quite generous in size. I finished with the chocolate gelato, which was very tasty. The service was awesome and the prices most reasonable. I can't wait to go back.
