I was the first one to arrive on a midweek lunchtime. It's a very small place seating 20/25 people. I was greeted in a friendly fashion and could pick any table I fancied. It soon filled up and the atmosphere was fun. I'm not sure about the music though - it kind of didn't go with the style but hey... More

What a nice experience! For lunch everything was at 10$. And so tasteful! We had fabulous garganelli and cavatelli followed by cannoli and creme brûle for desert. A nice barbera was perfect with it. Very small restaurant, so reservation is necessary. Go there if you're in Soho.

It was almost good, but not wonderful. Quick served, but tables are very near all from each others. In conclusion: good time, but i'm not sure we will go back.

Stumbled upon here late in the evening last Spring (April 2013) with my girlfriend after waiting a longer than expected wait another restaurant around the corner that we normally frequent. Piccola Cucina is a tiny space about the size of 450 sq foot studio apt. It was full with approx 4-5 other tables (10 - 15 ppl). They were very... More

I am always looking for MY place. This could be it. I have eaten here twice and each time was an excellent experience. It is extremely small so leave your shopping bags and extras at home. Noisy? Yes. The Burrata was fresh and generous. Prosciutto, excellent. The Carpaccio di Tonno was as good as any I have eaten. It was... More

This is part of a small though rapidly growing international chain (4 widely dispersed cities, to date). I can’t wait to try out the sister eateries. The food is classical southern Italian cuisine, as you might find at someone’s home, but with a genuinely professional presentation. As mentioned, the space it tight, just like so many places where I went... More

Was trying to escape the crowds on Boxing Day looking for a quiet sanctuary for a bowl of pasta and a Pinot noir. Found by chance and the restaurant was having a $10 lunch special. Thought why not. The restaurant was small but very attractive. The service was really good given it was fully occupied. The smoked salmon bruschetta.was to... More
