Loved so much this restaurant that I will come back every time possible. Food is fresh and delicious, staff is super nice and kind and ambience fun and lively! Price wise is great for the quality.
It's so good that your family is going to celebrate a wedding anniversary next week at Piccola Cucina Estiatorio. They are doing a great job in this place! Thank you for a wonderful lunch.

Wait staff is very pleasant, a tiny place, not a restaurant to linger. In the warm weather the front is open which gives a nice summery feeling. The food is authentic Italian. Pasta is homemade and the best cannoli ever! I would recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful. Our go to siciliano time machine. The only big issue with Piccola Cucina is that it isn’t on the UES! We may have to start billing them for cab fare

Piccola Cucina Estiatorio has quickly become our favorite restaurant in NYC. We have eaten here twice in the last two months, after trying their other restaurant the Osteria twice. Great service and some of the freshest, most well prepared seafood in town. If we could give the restaurant a 6 rating, we would. The sardines are delicious. The whole branzino was perfectly cooked. And the pasta dishes are also delicious. The wine list is filled with some rare Italian choices. We had a bottle of Carjcanti Bianco from Sicily that was perfect with our fish.

Had a lovely 25th birthday dinner for our son the other night. Warm and attentive wait staff, excellent fish and pasta. Large portions! Wine list is on the pricey side, but good choices within that.

Loud music and energetic waiters that dance with patrons. Good food but too loud to hear conversation at your table. Lots of birthdays.
