Horrible start, gave us a cramped table right in the way of all the Waiter/Waitress traffic, as I looked at the menu I was barged into 4 times in 3 minutes. This was due to the party next to me being booked for 4 people, but 6 turned up. I wasn't happy. They did move me 5 mins later, once... More

We love all of the Piccola's. The food is authentic Italian. The price is fair. The wines are very good. This location is a little bigger and louder than the other ones but a very popular date night or dinner with friends spot. Very well run by nice people.

We went here twice on a four day visit, food and service were very good. The restaurant is tiny and can be quite loud but worth it.

This is an authentic Italian nearly all the staff are Italian, and as the name implies it is very tiny. The tables are very close together, the atmosphere is buzzing, the music is vibrant! The kitchen is behind what could previously have been a bar. It's impressive how the two chefs produce such fantastic food in such a small space.... More

This is pretty authentic. The pastas were very good, and served in nice presentation. Salads were good, but I didn't like the breadcrumbs on the spinach dish. Very difficult to hear, as it is a small location on busy-ish street with music. That is my main issue with this place. Book ahead during popular times.

We dropped into this charming bistro while exploring soho on my daughters birthday. We each ordered a different pasta dish, caprese salad and calamari. Wow. Great service and excellent quality food in a charming setting.

What a wonderful find this restaurant is. Food was finger-licking. I went without much hope of getting a tasty, gluten-free dinner, but was pleasantly surprised. I had gluten-free pasta with a burrata sauce and prawns and it was delicious. Waiters were delightful and brought us a couple of "presents" from the chef - e.g. a marinaded artichoke for me when...

People watching and lunch! We got there early for lunch due to the reports of needing a reservation. $10 lunch special included almost everything on the dinner menu! Awesome service and food was outstanding. We felt like a pampered NY socialite, dining on excellent food and conversing while watching the world go by!

Small please but excellent food and very good service! Nice price and service was fast! There was really "little Italia" inside that restaurant. I recommend this place!

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.
