Wow, wow...and wow. If you love a taste of Sicily, then Piccolo Cucina is a must. It's so quaint and intimate. The restaurant seats about 20 guests. The first language by the staff is Italian...starting your journey to Italy. The wine list is Italian. My favourite started is the bruschetta. The traditional mozzarella, basil and tomato is outstanding. I also... More

Deliciously fresh food. Ordered bruschetta, pasta pesto and tiramisu. The pasta was handmade and you could taste it. A very wide selection of wine as well. I will absolutely be going back and recommend to anyone! Small place, so you can see the cooks prepare your food and tables are close and few, but if you have to wait (I... More

Great location and very authentic Italian. Great food. Excellent wine list. My only criticism is the noise. Two parties of 8 or so people were in the restaurant and seem to be in competition speaking loudly and actually yelling.

They restaurant stays true to its name: Piccolo Cucina is little kitchen and little it is. But so cute and quaint with a a great atmosphere. I booked a reservation through opentable, arrived and was seated right away. The place was about 75% full on a Sunday evening. Right off the bat, waiters were fantastic. Very attentive and always on... More

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
