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 )

Simply one of the best restaurant in New York. I feel like being in Italy (where I am from) when I am there. By far the best valued restaurant in NYC

Locale delizioso, la cucina, oltre ad essere squisita, rispetta la tradizione dei piatti del caro sud Italia con un tocco magico di innovazione. Grande rispetto, stima e ammirazione per lo chef Philippe ed il suo team!!

We went to Piccola Cucina Osteria for a Sunday Lunch. The reservation was made for 1.30 pm. We arrived 5 minutes earlier and our table was already ready. The food was great as well as the service.

Excellent food and service. The place is small and fully booked so it is a bit tight but probably adds to me appreciating more how the service staff manage the restaurant efficiently.

I would give this place 1/2 star if it would let me and it’s not due to the food. It’s for the most terrible service I just witnessed and experienced at this place. In the short dinner service we had here (1hr), my wife and I watched the waiter at the door turn multiple diners away. He said they were fully booked, but certain people (pretty white girls and well dressed pretty people) were either seated immediately, told to wait a few minutes or a phone # was taken for a later table. Towards the end of our meal (just after the 1 hr mark) the waitress came over and said “not that we are rushing you, but we need your table for a group waiting outside (no reservation, well dressed group of 4) we can move you to an inside table or this middle table (where you literally can be bumped by the wait staff every 5 seconds). Keep in mind, we had reservations. In addition, we witnessed them turn away a group of 4 young men whom the waiter walked to their other less crowded restaurant. Anyway, we moved but I clearly was very upset. So, they gave us our $10 dessert for free. I have been dining in NYC for 25 years, and I never experienced such bad service. Such a shame😤👎🏻. It’s no wonder you’re dropping in trip advisor ratings. I’ll make sure to spread the word.

Wow, we loved every minute of our experience. Yes it’s a small space and quiet energetic. So if your looking for a quiet, average meal this is not your place. The service was amazing, so nice, attentive, able and willing to answer questions. The pasta was fantastic, the grilled octopus was out of this world! We found prices cheaper than most in NYC, and go for the cannoli. You won’t be disappointed! Make a reservation, it is small. We

The place is much too noisy to have a conversation. The food is just so so. The combination makes a poor dining experience.

Great food, we had the grilled calamari, wild boar tagliatelle and the lobster linguine. The ambiance is amazing, very cute and small restaurant--sit outside!! The service was quick and no mistakes were made. The staff was charming, knowledgeable and kind! Definitely one of my favorite places to eat lunch/dinner in Manhattan.

This is one of my favourite spots in NYC for authentic Italian food. Pasta is phenomenal and the service is lovely. Last time I went was for their lunch special and I will absolutely be returning the next time I'm in town. I don't have enough good things to say about this place, definitely worth visiting.

It is a small restaurant but they make the most out of it. They are very efficient as people just poured in. The service was impeccable. Did not feel rushed. Provided very good advice on the food. Food was excellent. We shared Grilled Meatballs, Burata, Eggplant, Ravioli,
Branzino and 4 Desserts. One of the most enjoyable Italian meals. Felt like being in Italy. Have put it on my favorite list.
