Piccola Cucina Osteria it's our gem in the heart of SoHo. The Chef and owner Philip Guardione opened in January 2013 to bring in the city the real taste of Sicily.
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. Fully renovated in 2021 the location looks warm and cozy.

Our other two Piccola Cucina locations in Manhattan are:
Piccola Cucina Estiatorio ( 75 Thompson street )
Piccola Cucina Uptown ( 106 E 60th Street )

Piccola Cucina Osteria accepts online requests for parties smaller than 6 guests only.
If you are looking for a bigger party or special event, please contact us info@piccolacucinagroup.com
Thank you

    I travel to Sicily often, and recently spent the month of April traveling around the entire island. In Palermo and west, restaurants serve panella. The pasta we ordered, pasta con sarde e wild fennel, should be served with toasted breadcrumbs on top. The cassata for desert - can't it be made with less sugar? Even in Sicily they are cutting back on sugar. Grazie mille.

    The food was flavorless. I was shocked. I got linguine with lobster. Friend got branzino. Caesar dressing was so average. Croutons were terrible. We boxed everything up to give away and went to another restaurant. The Italians working there were lovely. Not sure why the food is so subpar.

    Sistemati vicino ai secchi dell’immondizia, nonché posto di passaggio continuo dei camerieri (probabilmente, in giornate meno affollate, il posto non viene utilizzato); due delle quattro sedie erano per bambini dell’asilo; i due tavoli “ballavano” e neanche la “zeppa” messa da un inserviente, peraltro ad uno solo, ha risolto il problema; hanno preso le ordinazioni dopo quelle del tavolo accanto, anche se gli occupanti sono arrivati almeno venti minuti dopo (credo di aver prenotato almeno 10 giorni prima); si mangia benino e, considerando i prezzi di New York, abbastanza buono il rapporto Q/P; pessimo il tiramisù preparato a vista (“non come quelli dietro l’angolo eh!?”, hanno tenuto a precisare, riferendosi a ristorante simile, anche nel nome), secondo i dettami della new wave, del quale pure ne avevano esaltato le qualità.

    Our waitress was lovely. The food was as superb as I remember it from a few years ago and we truly enjoyed our meal. The only negative comment is that our coffee first came incorrectly as espresso instead of the decaf American coffee we ordered and it was cold but other than that it was an excellent meal and we will definitely go back again

    Although I know they will regret losing the table space, I think that dining here will be much better without the sidewalk tent. It's extremely cramped even by New York standards plus it's airless and humid inside and smells strongly of mildew. It's hard to separate out that part of the experience but our server was the best part of the visit. The pasta dishes were also quite good. We should have skipped the appetizers, which were tiny and not tasty. The tiramisu for dessert was very good.

    We came primarily for the food and we were not disappointed! Definitely get the green tagliatelle with wild boar and truffle. (We had the truffle on the side, you can get whatever pasta you want wit it). The ambiance was fun - lively, yet cozy, even a tad romantic. The staff (all Italian) and the service were both FANTASTIC— I really can’t get over how welcoming and attentive and kind all of our staff interactions were. Top notch! Exactly what I’d hoped for and a lot more. Also, so reasonably priced and in a fun part of the city. (We were escaping Times Square) Just know that the tables are tiny but that’s part of the bistro vibe, and exactly what we experienced in Italy.

    100% Would go Back We went to Piccola Cucina for a co-worker celebration. Our first thought was “yikes this is a tight space.” However, for what they lack in space, they more then make up for in authenticity, food and service. The food was so flavorful! I highly recommend the fried zucchini flowers (to die!). The waitress was really friendly and knowledgeable and if you order the tieramisu, they make it right in front of you. Would love to go back for date night.

    Overall, the food was average. The lobster pasta dish had a paucity of lobster. The rice balls were warm, not hot, and below average taste. The sautéed spinach was dry as was the branzino. The Italian bread was good and the coffee great. Honestly, would not return to eat there.
