    Excellent Italian restaurant with creative menu. Really first-rate and very fine service, too. It has many of the standards you find in a fine NYC Italian restaurant but more, too. We had a wonderful Roman artichoke appetizer and a langoustine fusilli. Multiple crudo fish appetizers, too, for those who like that. Various salads to which you can add shrimp or chicken. We were there on a busy lunch day and the service was impeccable and unpretentious.

    We are an Irish family on vacation in Manhattan. Our waiter Marli was on top of his game and impressed us with his witty and ‘on point’ conversation. A real cool dude. Only downside was that all the fab dishes served were way too salty!! Please Chef - go easy on the salt and let the food flavours speak for themselves!!

    The staff was nice and wonderfully attentive. They were happy that I was happy - and that’s the best customer service experience that you can have. The food was incredible - highlights were the guac and lobster bruschetta and the AMAZING cacio y pepe. I will definitely be going back soon.

    Our daughter gave us a gift card to eat here but when I previewed the menu I was concerned about my very limited options due to numerous food allergies & being gluten free. I was very pleasantly surprised that most of their pasta dishes can be made with GF pasta. And they include GF bread too! The GF pasta was the best I ever had and the sauce was delicious. My husband who is not GF, raved about his meal too. The service was excellent and the manager said take serving safe food for people with allergies very seriously. It’s a busy place so I recommend reservations for lunch or dinner. But Go! We had a wonderful meal & great experience.

    What a great find! We booked a reservation here though OpenTable without knowing much about the restaurant. We were thrilled when we arrived and we were warmly greeted by the team. The hostess, Erica, was very accommodating and she sat us at a table we requested. Our server, Marlee, was terrific and made food and wine recommendations that were outstanding. We both had the Cacio e Pepe… WOW! In short, this place is special. Go, eat, drink and enjoy.

    Possibly the best authentic Italian food I’ve had in NYC (& I lived in Florence for a while), recommend the spaghetti al nero di seppia or the maccheroni alla norma, amazing cute little place, only slight complaint is it gets very noisy inside

    I just LOVE the place. Fabulous food and delightful Staff. The manager Erika has a terrifically high VIBRATION. She knows well how to make the Place SPIN. The staff is superb. They really have HOSPITALITY at the top of their list. Welcoming and efficient. Unlike many restaurants where too often, untrained and uninterested staff provide a lousy experience as if the diner is just a real hassle -- but they sure have their hand out for the Tip... Know what I mean? Run, don't walk... Piccolo Cucina IS the BOMB.

    We traveled a long distance & dealt with traffic, bike lanes, bus lanes nowhere to park just to eat at an authentic SICILIAN restaurant. The hosts were pleasant and quickly seated us as we had a reservation. We ordered rice balls as an appetizer and they were just awful. Overly fried crip, no RICE, or cheese, but a small amount of ground beef that had zero flavor. They gave us very good semolina bread with a tapas of sun dried tomato, hummus and an unidentifiable terrible dish along with it. My main dish was grilled salmon and was ok, too undercooked for me but nice, the worst was the fingerling roasted potatoes! Covered in thick salt and rosemary. I have been sick all day with a headache from eating those overly salted over cooked dry potatoes. Cappuccino was made perfectly and was delicious and hot when served, the lemon cheesecake was delicious! I won’t go back but the atmosphere, music and service was good.
