Amazing ! Service was great, good was delicious.
Menu was difficult to understand. My friend felt his dish looked unattractive (Portobello mushrooms and pappardelle pasta) taste was ok but Pasta did not work with dish. I had Maccherooni allla Norma. Again the pasta didn’t work with dish but taste was ok. Perhaps the fettuccine which is put together table side would be better but we weren’t told about that possibility. Not sure I will return or recommend to anyone else!
Great service and food
Food was wonderful. Staff was very pleasant and very attentive. Great value.
The food was amazing! I highly suggest the burrata for an appetizer and Maccheroni alla Norma for pasta.
The manager also brought over free dessert for us to try! The experience was fantastic.
Very friendly staff. Ordered the Fritto Misto and Squid Ink Cavatelli. Both have on point seasoning but the cavatelli is not all cooked through. Some cavatelli were cooked thru and tasted wonderful, some were not and tasted doughy.
One of my favorite restaurants in New York. Amazing food and great service.
Very pleasant outdoor seating area. Friendly and efficient staff. Safe and clean throughout. Excellent food.
Great outdoor dining with amazing food and gracious service.
Wonderful food. Service was excellent. They’ve created a nice space on the street.
Great food. Everything was tasty. Service was good. Try the octopus.
What a fabulous evening.
The food was excellent, and generous portions.
The outdoor dining setup was very original, you didn’t feel like you were out in the streets.
We had such a wonderful time we’re going back next month.
I’m getting the bucatini cacia e Pepe.
Service was excellent and we really enjoyed our waiter, who is from Rome.
Great dining experience.
Outdoor dining atmosphere is wonderful. Food is as good as Prince Street location. So glad Piccolo Cucina opened an uptown spot.
Some of the best pasta dishes I have ever had in NYC
Staff was very friendly and attentive. Ambiance and food was great!
What a lovely Friday evening outdoors at Piccola Cucina! I was greeted by name when I arrived, which was so welcoming. The staff were incredibly nice and helpful. The burrata appetizer was delicious, as was the salmon entreé. Great wine list, and the night was topped off by a surprise dessert! The table in the corner was cozy and far enough from the sidewalk that there was no need to worry about sidewalk vagrants and criminals. Despite not loving outdoor dining in the heat and humidity of a NYC summer and the annoying street noise, all the delights of this experience far outweighed the things outside annoyances that are inevitable in NYC. Can’t wait to return!
Under trying circumstances and on a somehwhat rainy day, my party and I had a very lovely lunch with terrific food and service right out on the street adjacent to my former place of business! It was my first visit to Piccola Cucina but it won'y be my last.
Food was great--my friend got the tuna and said it didn't taste so fresh. The ambiance is great and the pasta is AMAZING. I would have preferred if the tables were a little further apart in light of COVID--it didn't feel like there was much social distancing being practiced as the tables were very close together. Our waitress was so sweet and very attentive but it was obvious they were trying to rush us out to seat other people.
Excellent outdoor dining option. Appetizers and small plates are a strength. Only weakness in our meal was the green fettuccine w wild boar ragu. The sauce was terrific BUT pasta was dramatically over sauced overwhelming the pasta and making this more like a dense soup. The veal Milanese was excellent. It came with potatoes. Next time I would compliment the crisp crusted chop with a salad instead.
They are still new, so they are probably still perfecting their food but I'll say the downtown location is better food wise - however the ambience uptown is better!
was a wonderful, delicious dinner and great 'outdoor' ambience . Will go back again soon ! thanks !
The food here is phenomenal. The outdoor ambiance is also very enjoyable and the service is also great! Felt very safe in the Covid environment
Raining during a pandemic? No problem: we were seated at a table with an umbrella. Wine not quite right? No problem: they opened a new bottle.
The salmon tartare is out of this world. The cappuccino was as close to what you'd find in Rome. And the fact that this was all happening in a pandemic was just incredible.
This places is FANTASTIC and we will be back!
Amazing highly recommend. Very authentic Italian food and an amazing ambiance. Enjoy!!!
Nice ambiance and delicious food
Amazing meal and amazing service! I’ll be back soon.
Nice food, excelent service and nice ambient to share a moment with friends and family.
Amazing as always!!!
Excellent food and very friendly waiters! By far the best Italian restaurant in Manhattan. Highly recommend people looking for a true Sicilian experience to go there!
Amazing food, service and staff. Highly recommend - great lunch time deals / great food overall!
Great value. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Very friendly and attentive service.
We had a reservation for 2, but were not seated until 30 min later. The service was good, and food was delicious, but the restaurant needs to honor their reservations.
Great food and service. A lovely lunch at a lovely restaurant.
My boyfriend couldn’t stop raving about the fusilli scampi. The restaurant has a really nice outdoor setup, service was great, food was delicious and dessert was amazing as well.
Not even a question, this restaurant is the BEST. L'atmosfera, il cibo e il personale sono incredibili! Will keep returning.
Food, service and outdoor seating were exceptional. The ambience was great for a group of friends. One of the best dining out experiences I have had in New York.
The food is, hands down, the best Sicilian/Italian food in New York, and the staff is wonderful.
This place is as great uptown as it is downtown, which is really great. Such delicious pastas and awesome service!
My husband and I have date night at least once a week at Piccola’s. The food is always amazing and their customer service is 5 star. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially their cannoli’s they are to die for. This restaurant is a must try, what a gem!!
