Met two friends for dinner. Restaurant was packed but comfortable, with a similarly easy atmosphere - friendly, great service and filled with diners enjoying the experience. We tried a number of super small plates (cleaning every one). My personal favorite was the lasagna, which was lighter than many places, but enjoyably flavorful. The waiter selected a great wine to accompany... More

My return to this tiny place was worth it: once we squeezed in, the friendly staff helped us select a nice wine to go with our fish carpaccio and artichokes. Everyone around us seemed to be enjoying their meals. A great find.

Perhaps 10 tables in this Sicilian cucina. I had the Eggplant wrapped around pasta, our group loved the Lasagna ,and the chicken, but everyone's favorite was the risotto. A fun vibe with upbeat music as a backdrop and the staff were lively and friendly.

I had lunch with my wife. We are both Italians living in NYC. The restaurant is very small and we were next to the entrance, so it was not nice when is cold outside, as many people come in and out, and forget to close the door. We ordered several Sicilian appetizers and dessert, plus red wine. We ordered Arancini,... More

Reason because we can't forget the taste & good time we had in such a big city.We found this place by accident while going through shopping & never regret that. Small place, small menu, small kitchen but with... More

After a long day of shopping we stopped early to have a bite to before catching a cab uptown. What a treat. Tiny place but couldn't have been nicer about seating us on a Saturday evening (no reservation) with lots of bags. Helped us with wine selection to pair with starters's, meatballs very good by the way. Thoughts...how do they... More

The food was delicious and even the espresso made us feel like we were in Italy. If you love Italian food you will not be disappointed.

Everything is terrific at this little iItalian gem in Soho. We had just returned from Italy and needed a cafe fix. So we drove from Stamford CT to Piccola in NYC. We were immediately transported back to Verona and summer memories. The authentic Italian wait staff humored me as I attempted to order in Italian (didn't fool him one bit).... More

The reviews on several sites were very good, so we searched out this restaurant for dinner before a Broadway show. Service was poor. On a warm summer evening, I had to ask for water several times. The best part of the meal was the ceasar salad. The dressing was not they typical heavy creamy type, but had the same full... More
