After an all-day meeting, some of my workers met for dinner. The restaurant front is unassuming and like many NY restaurants, you descend from the street. Hostess was pleasant and cordial. We were seated right away and offered water and cocktails. Good selection of wines and the bar was fully stocked. One coworker enjoyed a Khalua and creme which was... More

I am so sad!! This used to be one of my favourite restaurants. Went there last night 3rd sept!! One waiter working and a man in a polo shirt. We waited 5 minutes before anyone wanted to even seat us. Were greeted by an unfriendly and unhelpful waiter. Atmosphere was similar to that of a morgue!! No music, no service,... More

I recently went to Piccolo Fiore for lunch with a friend, after not having been there for some time. I was surprised that we were the only ines eating there; perhaps this was because of the scaffolding covering the building where the restaurant is and the construction work around it. Hopefully the works will be completed soon as the noise... More

I went into Piccolo Fiore for lunch having only 40 minutes. I ordered the Caprese starter and Pasta Fagioli soup. Friendly service, quick delivery of my food, I was able to have the plates brought out separately, eat in a clean, comfortable atmosphere, and make my appointment with minutes to spare. The food wasn't cheap, but about par for the... More

My family enjoyed our meal here. We had blognese rigatoni, chicken francese and spaghetti with meatballs. The spaghetti was hand pulled and delicious. Wines are a little expensive, but the meal prices are average for the area.

Lovely food, well cooked and very tasty. Nice surroundings and attentive staff. A bit more expensive than we would pay in the UK, our bill for 2 people with a starter, main, desert, coffee and service charge came to $220 which is about £150. I would expect to pay in the region of £90 to £100 for the same at... More

My husband and I were both on business in NYC on the same night, a rare occasion, staying at the Club Quarters Grand Central location. We identified Piccolo Fiore here on TripAdvisor so tried it out. We're so glad we did! The owner, hailing from Abruzzo Italy, has created a menu of classic Italian fare with special spins, like "Mama's"... More

My co-worker and I had dinner at the bar here this week. We split chicken part and one of the house pasta, both were great and too much food. The bar has is own menu with small dishes that also looked great - I will try those next time.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
