We had just parked the car and my husband and I were looking for a place to eat. We chose Piccola Cucina because our relatives from Italy were with us and they were hungry. What a wonderful choice. The name, which means small kitchen, is no lie. It is indeed a small but cozy place. The waiter was so moved... More

The food was great. The restaurant is small but the food was delicious. It had a cost feel to it. The service was super!

If you want to have good Italian food stop at Piccola Cucina, Prince Street in Soho. The service couldn't be better. The waiters are so nice always looking for you. The food is excellent. All you are ordering is made at the moment. And very important not very expensive. It was a great experience. Thank you all staff from the... More

Second visit and won't be the last. Very tiny place (reservations are a must) but very cozy. And the food is delicious! Prices are very reasonable and service is great (always a good sign when you are being served by Italians in an Italian restaurant).

Walk through the doors to this tincy place and you immediately feel you've been transported to Italy. Wonderful menu, delightful service and most important, delicious food. The salads are gorgeous, the wine divine and everything coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled fabulous. People were ordering like crazy... a lively crowd. Don't miss the $10 lunch specials.

Right, if you want space and polish this is not the place for you. If you don't mind dining in what feels like someone's lounge with hustle and bustle and noisy intimacy then book now. Amazing, authentic food, great wine at a price that doesn't break the bank. We loved it but honestly it is very small so be prepared... More

Our party of nine family members were easily accommodated with reservations at this Sicilian favorite after visiting the nearby WTC. After a little wait we were treated to an excellent and affordable feast of 4 types of bruschetta, mussels, fried mozzarella and yummy pasta dishes; especially recommended are the ravioli with wild boar ragu and mezzaluna ravioli with porcini filling,...

We've been scouring the local area for three days and this is by FAR the best and friendliest place. Gorgeous food (bruschetta, lasagne and egg plant rolls plus delightful Tiramisu). Lovely service!!!

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
