La Cucina Piccola
Valentine’s Day celebration! Delicious food as usual.
The food is fantastic! It’s one of my favorite places to have dinner.
Great food. Excellent service. I really enjoyed the Branzino, and the salad was excellent.
Quiet Thursday night before Valentine’s Day. Food was lovely , both the salmon and the pork chop. Soup and beet salad a good start. Had to wait a while to get bread and appetizers but after that smooth sailing. Not too noisy and music was right level. Service was friendly.
Great food. A bit cool when door opened. Definitely need reservations. They were turning away walk ins.
This restaurant is a jewel. The young chef has imagination and is passionate about his meals. The portions are generous. His wife, Trish, the waitress, is very personable and friendly. She treats all diners as family. I visited the restaurant after about 6 months. She remembered me and remembered the dished that I liked. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
New menu but same excellent food
Dinner was delicious, service impeccable! This neighborhood gem is wonderful! Food is served hot and with a smile!!!!
nice little place. good food. good service. close to our house.
Fabulous as always!
2nd time we’ve been...good value, very good food, nice neighborhood place.
Always great! The menu, the specials or the atmosphere never disappoint! Been coming here since they opened and it quickly has become one of my top 3 restaurants.
The food is amazing, the service is top notch, the prices are fantastic and I return every chance I get! Always fresh and super tasty - lots of healthy options as well as cozy comfort food. I lived in Italy as a child and Cucina Piccola reminds me of the family owned places we used to frequent. Add this one to your list!!
Love the food. One of my favorite restaurants in the area.
Lovely evening...great food and service.
Very enjoyable evening. Leisurely and delicious. Wait staff is the best!
Overall experience was a good one. Food was on point and the portions were adequate. Quality of the ingredients was high. Servers were attentive and friendly. Very small place, only about 10-12 tables, so make sure you make a reservation. Will definitely be back in the future.
This was our first visit to this restaurant, after reading all the rave reviews. The dining room had limited seating and the placed was packed. That is a good sign. Our food was well executed and very delicious. But there was a little glitch in our dinner order that extended our meal for a half hour. A very large party of people sat next to us, so I attribute the mix up to the kitchen being overwhelmed, the server and runner very preoccupied. We will try this restaurant again.
The food at La Cucina Piccola was delicious. We shared a caesar salad, and the two entrees we ordered were veal parmigiana and Chicken Giambotta. The veal just melted in my mouth....so tender and tasty.
The other entree was also great.
This has been in our top few choices since the day they opened. The specials are often fantastic and we have never been disappointed! We fear the day we won’t be able to get a table for dinner since we are often booking last minute. They do it all and they do it very, very well!
2nd time and it was equally amazing
Food is consistantly great and so is the service! It's why we keep coming back!
Charming little cozy restaurant in a strip mall. Felt comfortable from the time we walked in till we left. Delicious wide variety of food. The salmon I had was delicious as was my husband's braised short ribs . Everything is fresh esp. the salads . The portions are just the right size. The staff is extremely attentive. We will be returning and recommending La Cucina Piccola to a friend. It's a BYOB which is fine with us.
This was a last minute reservation as we were late booking a restaurant for New Year’s Eve. We had never been here and only booked it because it was available on open table. We were all very surprised at how wonderful the food was. All six of us had excellent meals from the appetizers to the entrees and desserts. We will certainly be back.
Food was excellent. Staff were conscientious.
I had no idea this little treasure was just up the road 2 miles. The food and service were amazing. Can’t wait to go back.
Food was excellent and friendly, efficient service.
Wonderful food and great staff!
Can't say enough about La Cuccina Piccolo. Every time we go there, we have a great time. No rush - you can converse with friends & enjoy yourself. Lou Lento
First visit to La Cucina Piccola and we really enjoyed our dinner! We will definitely return!
Took some new friends to the restaurant - they really enjoyed it. Food, ambiance & good conversation. Desserts were outstanding. Trish & Alan are good hosts. Lou Lento
My favorite BYOB restaurant in the Morris/Essex area! The food is consistently excellent and the service is friendly and efficient. If you haven't tried this restaurant yet, it's definitely worth a try!
excellent food and service
very easy to carry on a conversation
Another good night - food and desserts were great. Tricia and Alan do it right. Coming back again with more friends. Lou Lento
If you are looking for a decent local place this fits the bill but was not worth a drive.
Good food. Good service. Good prices.
Good food and service Friendly local etablishment. But like most restaurants too loud
Our favorite restaurant by far!! The food is always delicious and the service is perfect! We go every chance we get!
I hate to write this as I've had only very good experiences on my prior visits. Somehow the kitchen had an off night. Being good consistently isn't easy. I'll be back as I've enjoyed the place many times.
