Casual fine dining in an intimate space

We stopped on a whim and were delighted with what we found. Despite being emptier than most places in the neighborhood at 9pm, it was not because of the food. Our waiter was from Rome; we dusted off our Italian and compared notes. The fish crudo was amazing; pasta was also fantastic. There was... read more

Me and my husband had lunch twice in this little place. The lasagnas (vegetarian and meat) were superb. Desserts are also great. We tried the Sicilian canoli and the Tiramisu, both of them out of this world. Costed us about $60 each time for both of us. Definitely, a great place for lunch!

Atmospheric and friendly, the food here – especially the bruschetta – is pretty good. But be warned, it is very very small. So small that on our visit, when it became full I got fed up with the constant nudging and bumping from the (apologetic) staff trying to make their way around the restaurant to take orders and serve.

Having enjoyed our visit to Italy last summer, we are always in search of great, authentic, Italian food; particularly when it is complemented by Chianti Classico with the red rooster label. BINGO! Piccola Cucina is that quaint place! For lunch, my daughter and I started with the burrata, parmigiana rivisitata, and a glass of Chianti Classico (be still my heart).... More

I always dreamed to stop doing business in big companies and have a small place of mine where I would cook and drink good wine. Now this is a clear model for it. Absolutely delicious and genuine Sicilian food in a tiny place in the middle of soho. A cook alone behind the bar preparing the food. Perfect eggplant parmigiana... More

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

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
