Superb restaurant with personal touch and great vibe
Never a bad meal. Great service great food.
This is honestly one of my favorite italian places in the city if not my favorite. The place is small so it is not great for big groups but the food is great and the people are amazing!
A small piece of Italy. The lobster linguini is nothing short of magnificent.
Great Italian with helpful staff. Attracts a young crowd (which we were not). Nonetheless very enjoyable.
Great food and service
Cosy restaurant with authentic feeling. Perfect for a romantic date. But very nice for us with a family dinner. Nice wines and great service. Table reservations is probably the the best way to be sure to get a table. Recommended.
Cozy, nice atmosphere, fantastic food,outstanding team which provide a magical experience for their clients.
It is a like a Sicily spot in NY!
Like always, great food great service great lively atmosphere.
Can’t go wrong for lunch or dinner.
The restaurant is small and therefore a little cramped but otherwise fantastic!
Very nice ambience... super nice waiter ( from Napoli). Great food
Such a great find! Waiters were so nice and the food presentation was great. Highly recommended!
I had a great time in Piccola Cucina. The food is awesome!
Wonderful time wonderful food
Cute intimate restaurant went there with my fiancé we’ll like everything and it was quite correct prices
This place is fantastic and the food was amazing. The staff was fun and attentive and it seemed like everyone at the restaurant was having the time of their life. Met our daughter here for her Birthday and it was a very enjoyable experience.
Highly recommend !!
Perfect for what we wanted: small, dark, romantic. It was a little loud, but we expected that. The food tasted authentic and completely house-made. The only thing I would suggest changing is that they serve in metal pots with long handles instead of plates--kind of awkward and imposing for small tables... but that might be something they're proud of. ;) We'll def be back.
We had a fabulous meal and great time at Picolla Cucina at the advice of my "foodie" brother. Marco was such fun and gave us great advice! We loved it and I want to go back !!
AMAZING! We LOVED our food and the restaurant is adorable. Definitely would recommend
Wonderful as per usual. You will not find many restaurants like this in NYC with true Italian ambience like Piccola Cucina! Food is great too, but most importantly not overpriced like the Italian restaurants in Little Italy.
Great food as usual!
This is one of the best restaurants in the city. The food was fantastic, the service was great. My wife had the pasta with a half grilled lobster....incredible taste. I had the roasted hen, moist and succulent. It's a small space so it can get load, but the food more than makes for it. Highly recommended.
Full on Italian vibes. The place is tiny, so hard to move around. Food was amazing.
Amaizing food , great value , truly Italian
Just a little be noisy , not sure if music in the ambience helps or make Americans be even more loud than usual :-)
We went for my wife's birthday with a group of 5. The restaurant is really small and cozy, but the staff was very accommodating. They are very used to birthday celebrations. The food is high quality and reasonably priced. They did not rush us and let us bring our own birthday cake. The pasta dishes were very good. The menu had some flair but not pretentious like many restaurants these days. I do not need to know that the pork belly came from a pig named Bill. The grilled pulpo was perfect.
Only complaint: Since the tables are small, do not serve the meals straight from the skillet. Transfer them to plates and save some elbow room.
The restaurant kindly waited for us for 30min as we faced trouble of subway and delayed. Very good Italian tastes and Friendship
Dominic was a great waiter and the energy and entire staff were simply fantastic. The food was spot on in taste and texture. I could close my eyes and be in Sicily.
Had to leave before we could eat because the table where they sat us was so uncomfortable. Probably should have been a table for two (I think they may have brought in a table from outside to accommodate four). Since we were so close to the door it was also freezing.
Fantastic service. Great food. Fun time.
Any place that makes their own pasta, has lots of specials, and is not too pretentious is worth a visit, and this place fit all those bills. It's a small little spot with only about ten tables, making it cozy, but not too cramped. Also, as a note of distinction, all their pasta dishes (and many others) are served in a small sauce pot. It's a nice touch. Prices are reasonable, especially since they make it themselves. It's worth a try if you are in the neighborhood.
Amazing Italian food. Great service, great atmosphere.
First off let me start off by saying the food was amazing.
For apps we ordered the calamari and it was perfect to share for three. I was very impressed with the variety of pastas they had, not only on the menu but the specials as well. The pasta was fresh (pretty sure it was made in-house) and flavorful and served in creative iron cast pans. Definitely will be going back until I try All the pastas on the menu!!!
Always great food, friendly staff, a pleasure to dine here.
My mum’s birthday
Pasta was extremely salty. Prawns were bad! We had a stomic flew in the morning after. Not value for money at all.
I had a great time at Piccola Cucina. I must say if you do decide to come on a first date here the music is quite loud and you need to do a bit of shouting for your date to hear you. There isn’t a variety for you to choose from the menu if you're vegetarian. Overall the place is really cute and they had great music.
As Italian I can only say this is my favorite Italian restaurant ever! Very good food, super service and cozy atmosphere!
WOW! What a Find! This atmosphere was very intimate. All of their food was very authentic and delicious! They had a great wine list, along with a drink menu. The staff was awesome and fun. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of food. Can't wait for my next trip to Piccola Cucina!
The staff were very nice and extremely attentive; however, the food was bad. My wife found several completely raw pieces of pasta in her dish and the eggplant was unable to be found by either of us. My dish was ok, but it was nothing special. The other big issue was that the tables were so cramped that anytime the people sitting around us needed to get up, we would have to move our table and hold onto our stuff so that it didn't get knocked over.
We enjoyed an absolutely wonderful experience at Piccola Cucina Osteria. Yes, it is tiny, crowded, and noisy, but it's all part of the experience. The food was absolutely terrific--arancini as good as we have had, and brilliant, bright and flavorful pastas. The wait staff does a great job in conveying an authentic Italian feeling to the place. We will look forward to coming back.
