Italian
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

Piccola Cucina Osteria is and has been one of the best Italian food spots in all of NYC for years. I've been coming since 2015 and the food never disappoints. Also, their hosts and service teams are absolutely amazing!!!! The perfect place to eat and get a meal like mama cooked it!!!

This place was absolutely amazing. We felt cozy, warm even though it was freezing outside and the service was so kind and good. We visited with our two girls and they made spaghetti for them as we requested. We tried the days special that they recommended and everything was delicious. We will visit again when in NYC.

This place has pretty good Italian.
It’s as small as a closet. So your crammed in.
Especially with covid. Not sure if that’s what you want.
They do have outdoor seating.
Staff was very nice. But they tried to move the dinner along so fast. Hard to enjoy. We weren’t even done with the salad. And they tried to take our plates several times.
And the pasta came out too quick.
They wanted us in and out. As fast as possible.
Beyond that the tagliatelle was great!

The food tasted phenomenal. We had to talk ourselves out of ordering more and overindulging. We had the gnocchi, lobster pasta, and lasagna, along with an appetizer of the stuffed calamari.

The staff was very friendly and upbeat. Tiny space, but filled to the rafters with positive vibes.

The food didn’t live up to the previous reviews. Sat outside in an enclosed area, were sooo close to others, and food was just average. (Except the octopus, that was very good!). We asked to be seated indoors, but that’s only 3-4 tables! Asked on open table, thought they would honor our request or say that we couldn’t sit inside. Not like the pics. Average food, good waiters, lukewarm coffee. Don’t know where these amazing reviews are coming from!

When you want Italian food like you get when in Italy, this is the place to go. So delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant in the SoHo area. It’s a little bit of a walk if you are visiting NYC and staying near Times Square or Central Park, but well worth the walk.

This little restaurant produces some of the best Italian food I have had. The tables are set up outside in a comfortably, heated space. It was a bit tight though. I would recommend it and to make reservations
