Uncomfortable chairs & snooty waitress, but the food sounded like it would give you more than the average Italian restaurant. Entree descriptions sounded good, but the taste was just average and lacked some luster. Don't plan to go back.

Don't miss this! We had no expectations, and the list was full of food we had never heard of. So we relied on the recommendations of our attractive waitress and I am happy we did. Food was as good as it can be, together with the wine and the tiramisu the experience sent me directly to food heaven. And the complimentary Limoncello topped the experience. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a meal better than this!

A truly Sicilian restaurant.
Only few tables and perfect atmosphere.

Food is good with a decent wine list.

This is a tiny place that could easily be overlooked. What a mistake that would be. This is a very authentic Italian whose proprietor is a master chef who turns out gourmet quality Italian tapas (sort of appraiser sized plates) of creative, fresh and delicious food from a tiny kitchen behind a counter in the stylish space. You must try the swordfish carpaccio and the mozzarella and speck.

We loved our dinner at Piccola Cucina. The small plates allowed us to try many different things; the bruschetta with walnuts, arancini, and the swordfish were especially good, and we really enjoyed a meatball special. The only surprising thing was the small number of Sicilian wines on the wine list - we would have liked to see more.
