    i love taking dates to piccola cucina because food has never ever disappointed. Food was very much much below average this time, and service too. I’m sure it’s a one off though, and can’t wait to be back and have my usual experience there

    Many choices on Thompson St, But THIS would be your best bet for Italian that you don't get everywhere else. Very "Home" styled. Helpful staff, fun presentations and you most certainly will NOT go home hungry! Came in from Westchester and Staten Island just for this, and wasn't a disappointment. Somewhat seasonal menu changes- but always the basics of a memorable meal. This location offers grilled bread and a chili/tomato and olive oil dipping sauce that is AMAZING. Much to choose from, leaving you only wanting to come back and try the other dishes! Highly Recommend!

    Jorge, our primary server made us feel welcomed, was very knowledgeable about menu offerings and took into account our varying dietary needs when giving us recommendations. The food was exceptional—our party of three ordered items that we shared ‘family style’ : the red snapper with clams (fish offering of the day), grilled zucchini & eggplant and a Greek salad. The fish melted in your mouth and the salad and vegetables were incredibly fresh.

    Great dinner experience in July. This place was recommended by an Italian friend who moved to NY several years. We had fried sardines and grilled calamari as well as ravioli to share. Sitting outside was the best choice even with the current temperature. I can understand that inside might be too busy and hectic for some people but they probably haven’t been at an Italian taverna somewhere in Italy. It was really authentic.

    Visiting from SoFlo and dined here while in NYC. Loved it! Food was delicious and service was outstanding even though the small cozy restaurant was completely packed and many waiting for a table. Definitely need reservations. While dining was not quiet and romantic the music vibe made it for a fun Saturday might. Pasta was light and fresh and menu had great options to choose from. Happening little Italian place a must!

    A great experience: we booked a table at 11:30 am. We got the table super fast. But the food came a little bit slow. It took 30mins to get my food ready. Also, the distance between each table was too close, and the table was also petite. I wouldn't say I like that very much. Our waiter is very attentive and will keep checking how we are eating. We ordered tomato soup for $10.99, and black truffle pasta for $12. 99 of which the most recommended is the black truffle. I think lobster pasta is edible or not. If I have a chance next time, I will go back for their black truffle pasta.

    Piccola Cucina Estiatorio has become our go-to restaurant in New York, especially for entertaining out of town guests. It has a great New York vibe, busy even on Monday evening, while at the same time being super-Italian (not only the menu, but also all of the staff are from Italy. You can’t go wrong with anything you choose from the creative menu, and the service is excellent

    Location piccolina ma davvero caratteristica, staff super gentile e cibo (maccheroni alla norma) davvero come in Italia. La rumorosità del locale è anche il suo bello, piuttosto che i tanti "ristoranti italiani" desolati in giro per la città, questo ti fa sentire un po' più in Italia. I prezzi ovviamente per noi italiani possono sembrare alti, ma d'altronde qui l'italiano (vini soprattutto) sono merce d'importazione e ovviamente molto più cari di quello che siamo abituati a pagare in Italia. Super consigliato, ci tornerò.

    We found this restaurant on yelp. Our waiter Andy was fantastic. My partner loved the toasty bread served with a dipping oil. We started off with the grilled calamari which melted in our mouths. The size of the Branzino filet was generous and my partner raved about the flavors. I chose grilled shrimp and vegetables for my main course. To my surprise I was served eggplant which is my favorite! We loved the whole experience and the cuisine. Thank you!

    The food was disappointing. The pasta, while well cooked, was very light on the seafood sauce that was meant to accompany it. The Greek salad was little more than tomatoes with a couple of pieces of red onion, and the quality of the seafood in the fritto misto was not impressive.
