We had some out-of-town company so we took them to Piccola Cucina . We told them about the fun atmosphere and they were not disappointed! We had reservations at six and we were seated immediately. We shared a Caesar salad, which came very quickly. Our main courses were delicious and the serivice was very efficient. As always , Roxanna and the rest of the staff made us feel so welcome and valued as customers. We will be back!

We drove from Bozeman to Red Lodge for lunch at Ox Pasture after friends raved about it. We weren't disappointed! The portions were quite large for lunch but to-go boxes were available.

Great location. We were first reservation of the day and music was so loud we could not talk. Once we asked them to turn it down it was fine. Octopus appetizer was well done. Good sized proportions and always end up with leftovers to go. The only one not boxed up was the spaghetti. The spaghetti sauce tasted like Campbell soup. Have always enjoyed the restaurant and of course will go back.

The ambiance, waitstaff, and food were exemplary. The arancini, pasta dishes, and tiramisu were standouts. I really wished I had ordered the cacio e pepe. I could tell it was done right by watching the tableside preparation at another table. Overall, a stellar experience.

The food is exceptional, you will not find a more authentic Italian experience aside from New York or Chicago. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you are being taken care of at every level.
This is an experience you won’t want to miss!

Even though we missed Erica, the chef was on his ‘A’ game which he has been every time we eat there! Huge portions of delicious cuisine. Have tried new things each time and have never been disappointed. A must on everyone’s bucket list who are even close to Red Lodge!

We drove 2.5 hours just to dine here and it did not disappoint! I had a green salad and the Bronzino and my husband had the Caesar salad and the pasta that is mixed in the cheese round. We both also had the grilled veggies. So, so delicious, ,and our waiter, Zane was fantastic, as was the maitre d, Roxana. Both made sure we had a fabulous time, as it was our anniversary, so they played a song and we danced. So sweet! Then we had the cannoli's. Mama Mia! If you go on a weekend you need to make reservations several weeks in advance, but just do it! Best meal of the summer, for sure!!!

An excellent choice for a Birthday celebration. It's a small place and was crowded but it is in a small town. The entire staff was friendly, helpful and seemed genuinely happy to be working there. Pablo was our server and could not have been nicer or better. We loved Roxanne too- she was a sweetheart. The Caesar Salad was perfect - crisp and huge. Our entree was a green fettuccine with a beef mushroom truffle sauce. It was delicious! Our friend had a Fish dish which he loved. Créme Brûlée was perfection. Make a reservation and don't miss this gem in Red Lodge.
