When you think of a neighbourhood italian, you sometimes think of friendly, family service and heaps of well cooked pasta in a homely sauce. You get very friendly, caring service here but that's where the connection ends.
Piccola Cucina is wonderful find with modern, light, delicate flavors and fantastic dishes. You can go to this small but perfectly formed restaurant for lunch or dinner and be genuinely delighted at the care and thought that has gone into the quality of some great dishes.
My favorites are the Vitello Tonnato ( not to be missed under any circumstances), the delicate beef carpacio and excellent salads such as the Arugula with Grana Padano and cherry tomatoes. In each the ingredients are of the highest quality and the preparation is skilled.
Piccola Cucina is my favorite for lunchtime by myself or with a friend, you can sit in the window or on the small patio onto the street and watch Soho NYC go by. You'll be looked after by great staff and you will leave content and happy.
