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

After an active morning in SoHo this was a great way to relax in the afternoon with a glass of chianti, delicious food, and conversation. It is a tight space but the patio dining and open doors make it feel larger. You can actually have a conversation, too, unlike some cramped cafes here. Both the food and the service exceeded... More

I can't believe I did not know this small intimate place was here and so wonderful. The food was excellent, the wines equally so. It is like a visit to southern Italy and never leaving home. We are very particular and this restaurant gets accolades for the staff, the food and the chef.

We visited Piccola Cucina immediately after a 24-hour trip and were looking for an experience we couldn't find in our current home in Southern Africa. We found it! Piccola Cucina had great atmosphere, food, and service. Our meal included meatballs, homemade fettucini in a boarsmeat sauce, and ravioli stuffed with seasonal veg. It was all fantastic, served at the perfect... More

This is a small place approximately 10 tables which was just the atmosphere I wanted. The portions are perfect, more appetizer size and great for sharing. I had the porcini mushroom special and it was excellent. I will definitely be back!
