Piccola Cucina Estiatorio
Amazing as always, my home away from home !
I’ve been here a few times, COVID hasn’t changed the atmosphere, service, or food quality at all. Still one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city.
Amazing sea urchin pasta and service. Will definitely be revisiting.
The staff made us feel special. We were there to celebrate our birthdays. The food was delicious. Definitely coming back!
Too crowded in outdoor dining huts, that were not completely open.
Food was delicious! Would definitely recommend for all!
the best pasta place in the city
don't go anywhere else.
So good! Outdoor setup is great, perfect night!
Delious pasta! The new outdoor dining set up is amazing, stayed warm and cozy in December.
The spaghetti with sea urchin was sub par. Clearly frozen sea urchin splattered with butter to hide. Service and ambiance excellent
Cute place but outdoor seating is too close to other people.
The food was amazing as usual but definitely reconsider if you are going for outdoor dining. the heaters aren’t that strong especially if you are sitting at a table far from it.
Perfect experience! Delicious food as always, lovely staff who made my friend feel special on his birthday, and a cute outdoor dining space. (Tables are a bit close though!)
Always come back here, we love it. Food is always awesome and vibe is great.
Amazing.. food was superb! I’ve been there four times and have eaten so many delicious dishes... just go ..you will not be disappointed!! Ohhh, and the Sicilian cannolis are a must to end a fabulous meal!
Waiters were extremely friendly, the service was great and the food was very good. Great place for a fun energetic night out. Ambiance with outdoor dining was really nice.
We had a great time! Friend calamari was a pleasant surprise (for my daughter) and very tasty!
Very special lunch! Very tasty food, specially the bruschetta!!! Service very good like always!
Great food for a great price with fantastic service. Highly recommend
This place is very cute and the outdoor seating is well-decorated with heaters and pillows. It is definitely a must try Italian place in the NYC area, probably one of the best pasta I had in the States. Customer service was on point as well.
I had the Paccheri Gamberi (tube-like pasta with red shrimp and zucchini flowers). The pasta is chewy and fresh with a light tomato sauce topped with zucchini flower to finish it off. Perfect place for date night or friends gathering. “Aldente is key.”
Every dish we ordered was really really delicious. Service was perfect too - our waiter very funny. Would definitely come back or recommend to friends.
Amazing as always!! Loove it, food is amazing ;)))
Super tasty and good options for everyone
Best Italian place ever!
The whole experience was excellent and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great spot to dine in for any occasion.
The food was amazing as always! The seafood lasagna was out of this world good! Service was very attentive and fast. Will definitely go back.
One of the best Sicilian cuisine in NYC.. the special dish pasta with lobster was fabulous ! The staff is always very nice. Bravo
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!
Awesome experience. Food was great! Loved the entire meal. Perfect for any occasion
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.
My favorite - authentic italian, creative food and warn athmosfere
Great food and very friendly service.
Great as always.
Great experience! Wait Staff were professional, small table for three was well bused so that small table was never an issue. Food great, would definitely recommend and return
Amazing! Everyone is so friendly And both the servers and the chefs make you feel at home! Special Kudos to Karol and Gioele! ❤️
Incredible food, octopus app and the grilled Bronzino were both AMAZING 🤩
