Italian
Piccola Cucina Osteria was the second US restaurant for Piccola Cucina and opened in Januray 2013 in the heart of Soho.
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.
Great care is taken by the chef in choosing the freshest ingredients according to season.

Other two Piccola cucina locations are:
Piccola cucina Estiatorio ( 75 Thompson street )
Piccola Cucina Enoteca ( 184 Prince Street )

Food was very good. Extremely small place so very uncomfortable when it is cold outside for many tables due to very cold drafts - definitely took away from experience. We had a party of 3 but I would only go as party of 2 in future because of the seating limitations. Also very loud and dark. The food is the reason to go here.

Excellent lunch time special when most pasta dishes are $11. I had the vegetarian pasta and my partner the famous lobster pasta. Both dishes were delicious. Small but charming restaurant and excellent service from the friendly staff. Would return in a heartbeat. Always best to reserve a table as was very busy when we were there.

The space was cramped.

We asked for a side dish of pasta on top of the two entrees. We were told they could only give us pasta, if we order another entree. So we paid for the 3rd entree.

The food was delicious though and the wine was good.

If you’re looking for authentic Italian pasta Piccola is where it’s at. I come here often for lunch, ordering the lobster pasta with extra sauce faithfully. It’s amazing every time. The staff is really nice and welcoming. The restaurant is small so if you’d like to dine in with a large party it’ll be best to make reservations. I’d give the 10 stars if can, I love this place.

This place is unbelievable. First you will notice it is tiny. They cram you in there so if you don’t like close quarters beware. But the waiters....they ooze Italian warmth. The food is sublime. Some of the best Italian I’ve had anywhere:. Homemade, fresh, super flavors. The atmosphere is so convivial, consider yourself lucky if you are there for a birthday celebration. Over the top hilarious.

Food is great, prices reasonable. Hard to get a table if you don't have reservations. Tight spot and tables put very close together so not much ambience. If you aim for authentic Italian food only this is the right place.

Gran experiencia en el medio de un rumbo bullicioso. Nos Sentimos atendidos por la abuela o madre italiana que cocina excelente.
El lugar es muy pequeño por lo que sí es conveniente la reservación en horas de comida.
Los precios son accesibles. No hay que pensar mucho y puedes pedir alimentos, vino, postre y compartir porque son abundantes.

It was my birthday and the place was packed. We got the best table in the house and had a wonderful evening.The servers are always very friendly and the food is always delicious. There were two other birthdays the same night and they put the music a little louder for the birthday songs. Festive atmosphere and you know Piccola will never disappoint!

You're sitting quite close to your neighbor in this very cozy, adorable Italian heaven. The food takes over and you quickly forget about your personal space and enjoy the ambiance at this bustling place. Hey, you might make a new friend from another country. This adorable eatery attracts a lot of European patrons and you hear a range of languages, all blending together into a unified " uhhh, ahh, yum" hum..

If you want truly authentic and delicious Italian cooking, this restaurant is for you. It's tiny, and the tables and chairs are small and packed close together. But once you put a forkful of their delicious salads or pasta in your mouth, you'll think you're dining on a seafront terrace in Sicily. For a restaurant this size, the wine list is pretty good, with bottles ranging from the $40s to the low S100s. And the staff--all native Italians--are friendly and professional. We'll definitely be making a return visit.

Food is incredible, atmosphere is lively, and service was attentive but not overbearing. One downfall is the crowding. I like the small size of the restaurant, but they’ve packed the tables in there to the point of being uncomfortable—I practically sat on another person’s table as I was sliding by to squeeze into my seat. If they took our 2-3 of their smaller tables, this place would be a dream.
