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!

Same surprise birthday weekend in NYC with my lady. Wandering the streets as we always do when in the city, looking for new experiences, new tastes, new places. Time to eat and nothing booked. Piccola looked very welcoming, very busy, very small, very friendly. The maitre'd took my number and promised to call me in ten minutes to let me... More

I feel so bad, I did not have my glasses on and when I paid the check I shorted our server by about 15.00 on the tip. The reason I felt so bad was that everything about our dinner was wonderful. It was very unique with Italian small plates and the 4 of us shared incredible burrata with a beautiful... More
