Piccola Cucina Osteria it's our gem in the heart of SoHo. The Chef and owner Philip Guardione opened in January 2013 to bring in the city the real taste of Sicily.
Friendly service with a buzzy atmosphere, all in a typical Italian restaurant setting. It is matched by home cooking like you would expect to eat in Italy, which is one of the keys to the success of the restaurant. Fully renovated in 2021 the location looks warm and cozy.

Our other two Piccola Cucina locations in Manhattan are:
Piccola Cucina Estiatorio ( 75 Thompson street )
Piccola Cucina Uptown ( 106 E 60th Street )

Piccola Cucina Osteria accepts online requests for parties smaller than 6 guests only.
If you are looking for a bigger party or special event, please contact us info@piccolacucinagroup.com
Thank you

    I did appreciate Linda reserved my seat very well. Food is real Italian. Especially Buccatoni of sardine was fantastic. If you can enjoy yourself very cozy SoHo atmosphere, absolutely this is the place to go.

    Pero espectacular!!!! Las flores de zuccini de entrada liviano y delicioso. Los calamares con alcachofa espectaculares. El vino Gavi Gavi bien seco y perfectamente frío. El linguini de langosta al dente y en el punto perecto de sabor. De postre el mejor tiramisú de mi vida, preparado en mesa, fresco, suave cremoso, inigualable. Pero lo mejor la atención de todos los chicos. Atentos, y muy muy cálidos! Lo mejor de Litle Italy!!!

    muuuy mal servicio, fui a cenar con mi familia y mi pasta venia con un pedazo muy duro, se me rompió un pedazo de muela y la respuesta de la mesera y del dueño fue terrible. Estas pagando por comida y por servicio y dejaron mucho que desear, sobretodo la parte del servicio de la mesera que nos atendía. NO LO RECOMIENDO por el servicio.

    We arrived shortly after our scheduled reservation time but the restaurant couldn’t seat us. There was a line of customers with reservations who were also waiting to be seated. The restaurant appeared to be understaffed. We waited 20 more minutes to be seated and then decided to leave. It appeared that service was going to be a problem. The reservation was at 9:45. We left at 10:15 without being seated.

    The staff was wonderful and welcoming and the food was quite good. Just a note as an Italian: you do not put cheese on fish but I understand that you need to accommodate all flavors and hence the waiter offering to grate fresh cheese. I do recommend this restaurant

    The pasta was impeccable and I couldn’t believe how quickly that little kitchen pumped out the food. They are a well oiled machine. We enjoyed all of the recommendations from our server: The scallop special, pasta with boar’s meat, pasta with lobster, octopus, and lemon cheesecake were chef’s kiss. I want to go back and try the cacio de pepe and squid ink & risotto dish.

    I have travelled the world and this is still my favorite Italian restaurant anywhere - and this original is my favorite of the four locations. It is not overly fancy or sophisticated...it's not a place to be seen, but it is a restaurant to eat unbelievable food! Extraordinary!!

    Probably the top 10 best Italian I’ve experienced in NYC, however the outside heated seating was cramped to the point I could not take off my jacket and regularly bumped arms with the gentleman to my right. Regardless, it was very well worth it for this food and everything was delicious, especially the Tiramisu! We had: Truffle Lasagna Eggplant Maccaroni Cacio e pepe Tiramisu I recommend all of these dishes
