Italian
Piccola Trattoria is an authentic Italian restaurant, with the charm and comfort of a real Italian Trattoria.
Piccola Trattoria’s seasonal menu features an array of homemade pastas such as cannelloni, gnocchi and pappardelle. Come warm up with melt-in-your-mouth Bistecca, Boulliobese di Pesce or Branzino.
Piccola Trattoria’s cozy atmosphere is perfect for date night or to relax with good friends and a glass of vino.
"For the love of cooking"
A dinner at Piccola Trattoria is meant to re-create the warmth of meals enjoyed by Mr. Pennacchio’s family.
Chef Sergio Pennacchio, transformed the single dining room of 38 seats into a roomy, elegant-rustic space. Like the friendly and knowledgeable service, the ingredients are first-rate.
Chef Sergio Pennacchio changes the menu often, sometimes twice a week.
It's not northern or southern; it's Italian all over!

Chef Sergio serves up a slice of Italy as only he can. The food is always top notch and his outdoor dining space is truly al fresco.
Sorry I have to write such a good review as Pjccola Trattoria is a find.

Many choices. The chicken was chewy, tough, not enjoyable..
Seating indoors was well spaced but seats are hard benches and not comfortable. Bench needs cushion on seat not just a throw pillow for your back
Waiter was very nice.

Went here for our anniversary and it was a great experience. We sat outside on a beautiful evening. We started our dinner with the meatball appetizer. The meatball was gigantic and the taste was out of this world. We both loved it. My main course was sea bass in a special sauce. It was delicious and the fish was cooked perfectly. My wife had crepes stuffed with seasoned beef and spinach. It was so good that I ate half of her dish. Our waiter was really good and attentive. The service was not rushed and we relaxed with some delicious cocktails. The dessert was vanilla bean ice cream with a crepe filled with dulce de leche. It was decadent and the perfect ending to a great dinner.

Had mussels in white wine sauce as appetizer and striped sea bass. Both were outstanding. Server was very knowledgeable and recommendations were right on. Appreciated that the music was set relatively low so as to not be intrusive. Overall an excellent dinner.

Traveling with family to the area, found this gem in Dodds Ferry. Yummy Italian cuisine!

The appetizer - shrimp with polenta was amazing. There was an incredible pesto cream sauce. Would DEFINITELY have this dish again!!

For the Main course, the chef was most accommodating making the Fruit Di Mare for us both with squid ink pasta and a gluten free penne. Super yummy!

Our waiter recommended the Nebula which was the perfect compliment to our meal.

We are frequent patrons of Piccola Trattoria and we are NEVER disappointed. It's our favorite, intimate Italian restaurant in Westchester. Chef Sergio's food is incredible and creative. He's super friendly and comes to the table to personally check on you and make sure you're having the best experience possible. I applaud him and his servers for carrying us safely through Covid. His out-door dining was superb!!

On our most recent visit, we brought friends who are true foodies - they love to eat but also love to cook so choosing a restaurant to satisfy them can be a challenge. I had no doubt that they would love Piccola and I was correct!

So the long and short of it is...you must visit Piccola. It will become your new favorite restaurant!

Another delicious meal at Piccola Trattoria! The food was very flavorful, the service was very good and we loved seeing Sergio, the chef owner. Still the best calamari ever! Just check the prices of specials as ours were a bit higher than we expected. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

We recently ate at the Cipriani Restaurant in Miami before eating in Dobbs Ferry. Baked artichokes at Piccola Trattoria were excellent and much tastier that the ones on Miami. The main dish and deserts were also outstanding. The personal greeting by the owner completed this great experience. We strongly recommend it.

Piccola Trattoria is my favorite restaurant. Sergio (the chef) makes delicious and scrumptious appetizers, salads, and entrees. The homemade desserts are unbelievably delicious. The food is always consistent and always made to perfection. The wait staff is wonderful, friendly, and pleasant. Piccola is truly a hidden gem in Dobbs Ferry.
