Piccola Cucina Osteria - Spring St.
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 )
Amazing. Love the food and the people 😍
Food and staff were terrific! little tight but well worth it!
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 food! Friendly and warm
It is the best food and the best service! Love it!
Wow! Amazing cozy restaurant. They serve the meals in the skillets they are cooked in. We will definitely return to this little gem!!!
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.
Cafe was small be festive, service we lax but exact. Overall a very Italian feel
Excellent Italian Food. Very lively place and fun. We had been in Italy many times and this is as close as it gets!
Fantastic in all aspects.
Amazing. Need I say more.
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.
Excellent food and service.
Small but Nice place.
I strongly suggest this restaurant
Awesome chain- love all 3 of them. Always nice, friendly, welcoming. The cooks are talented- the food is always Delish. We LOVE Alfio who always makes us feel at home.
It was great!
Fabulous as always! Can't wait to go back. Love this restaurant!!!! Everything is just perfect - food, people, music, atmosphere. Love, love, love.
Food and service were amazing. Really fun atmosphere. Restaurant is super tiny so prepare yourself but food and fun are worth it. Also make a reservation
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.
This place is now one of my all time favorites in the city
A truly delicious meal. The space is very small, and the seating is quite cozy, but the food and the service was impeccable.
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.
Super place, tasty Italian food....u can never go wrong coming to this place. Love it!
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.
Would recommend only for the octopus appetiZer and if you do t really like your dinner companion and don’t really want to talk. The noise is beyond deafening.
Great food, Big portions (pasta comes Big, one serves for two) the place is very small, dont forgeth to make reservations. The started of filled Fish with mozzarella is delicious.
The space was just tight but we all enjoyed our fresh pasta. I will be returning. Perhaps when I am not 8mths preggers.
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!
Felt like we were transported to Sicily. Charming, very authentic, tiny, with very good service. Had the special of the night appetizer of grilled octopus. Fabulous!
This place is the real deal! Super delicious and great value. Festive atmosphere and friendly staff. Get a pasta dish!!
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..
Excellent food, hard working waiters but incredibly loud and crowded, it’s nice being close to people but not on top of them
Amazing food and service!
It was my birthday. Everything was great, the food delicious. The staff very welcoming and made me feel like home. Just the place is really small and because of that the table was too small. It's uncomfortable.
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.
The food was great. The service super nice and friendly. The atmosphere was lively with music.
Cute intimate restaurant with innovative Northern Italian cuisine. Our meal was delicious and different from your typical Italian. The wine was an excellent Chianti.
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.
Once again absolutely superb - octopus salad is my favourite
