A tiny and friendly restaurant where the waiters are knowledgeable and helpful. The diners are friendly as well and the table next to us asked our feedback on each dish since they arrived a little later than us. We tried 8 plates and 2 desserts, and each one was unique and very tasty. I'd definitely come here again!

Interesting Basque small plates in a charming little restaurant. Perfect for a late night snack for two. If you like Spanish tapas, you will enjoy Txikito, the Sangria was great!

As a huge fan of Spanish/Basque cuisine I was excited when this restaurant opened many years ago. I haven't been in 5 years ago but went last night and had an amazing meal. It's very casual and small but the service is experienced and warm. The pinxtos are wonderful. They offered a trout that evening that had serrano ham and... More

This Basque restaurant always pleases the palate. We had 8 different dishes and each morsel was simply divine. Ask you server for suggestions and get a good mix of specials and regular menu items. You won't be disappointed. The price adds up, so savor every morsel. It's worth it.

I had read good things about Txikito, so checked it out while in NYC on business. Staff were very friendly, but the food, while tasty, did not stand out in any way. I had razor clams, which were minuscule, albondigas, not bad, which came with bread, a nice artichoke appetizer, and the croquettes. A glass of Tempranillo is always good... More

Have visited twice. The first time before the Queen concert this past Summer.Hard to find delicious food near MSG so of course hit Trip Advisor and found this gem. When I first saw menu and saw kroketas I figured my kids would be fine with tons of those for dinner if nothing else appealed to them. Well we ate more... More

The server gave us wonderful advice on what to sample. I thought the tongue was exceptional. Two others at the table really liked the tripe. For those who are not adventurous eaters, fear not, you will have wonderful food.

Loved their sister restaurant in Brooklyn (La Vara), so tried this Manhattan site. Very pleasant downscale decor, not noisy. nice service. Small and medium-sized plates all with outstanding flavor. Limited liquor (gin, vodka, rum); great wines. $178 for 2 people with drinks and good tip.

Pintxos, tapas, small plates....whatever you want to call it, it does not matter. This is a great restaurant. Firmly rooted in Basque style cooking this little gem transported me to San Sebastián. The croquetas were crisp and creamy, the chorizo, bold and authentic. I ate a lovely dish of calamari with crushed piñon and lemon.....miraculous! The crispy morcilla ( blood... More

Txikito was recommended to us by the owner of the excellent tapas restaurant Elephant in Kingston, NY. Wow, was she spot on! Everything we tried was super fresh and expertly prepared. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and steered us toward some dishes we might not have otherwise tried. They had quite a few Basque classics, but the... More
