Wir kennen bereits La Cucina Osteria und waren dort schon begeistert.dieses Mal waren wir gleich zweimal hintereinander in der Enoteca. Super freundliches Personal, die Gerichte schmecken Original italienisch. Italienische Musik dröhnt durch den Raum und manchmal klatschen alle Gäste mit der Musik mit. Geburtstagskinder werden herzlich mit Musik und Gesang gefeiert.
Wenn wir wieder in NYC sein werden, sind La Cucina wieder geplant. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist topp, im Gesamten zu vielen anderen italienischen Restaurant in New York eher etwas günstiger.... Wichtig, unbedingt vorab online oder telefonisch reservieren. Die Gaststätte ist klein man sitzt etwas enger Zusammen.

Has always been a favorite spot. This time we were a bit disappointed. Our appetizers came out separately and then our meals as well. At least 5-7 minutes of waiting for my dining partner to get her appetizer and then meal. We felt like we were eating separately. Food is always delicious so hopefully just a fluke.

We had to wait a little even with a reservation but the staff was quite apologetic. The food and service was outstanding. We had seafood and pasta. Both were delicious. We had two younger children with us and they were terrific with them. Not sure if I would bring kids there but we were visiting from out of town and had no choice. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to New York. Make reservations! Best place we ate on the trip!

Locale giovanile ed accogliente dove poter mangiare un buon piatto di pasta. Camerieri italiani disponibili e simpatici che ti fanno sentire come a casa.
Forse unico neo l'eccessivo rumore nella sala.

The service was exceptional from the moment we entered the restaurant. The servers treated us like family. The food was delicious, as it usually is (this was my third visit). I started with the tuna salad and filled it with the capellini and porcini mushrooms. So smooth and so tasty! I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

I was hoping to eat the risotto when I got there but then I realized it is 3 Piccolas in the neighborhood and I reserved the wrong one. So I ordered the shrimp pasta that was really good and it is a big plate. I was with my parents and their linguini arrived like 10 minutes after my dish, whitch is really wrong and shows a disorganization in the kitchen.

Visited the restaurant on Saturday night with my girlfriend during a quick NY weekend trip - great “date night” place.

To sum it up quickly: Great food, attentive service, and reasonably priced. Can’t ask for more than that.

Highly recommend. We will be back on our next NY trip.

Bonne cuisine italienne. Plats de pâtes très copieux et bons. Service sympathique et efficace.
Belle carte des vins... mais :
Salle exiguë et bruyante.
Je n’ai pas apprécié le service imposé sur la note.
Je voulais y revenir mais pour cette raison je n’y retournerai pas. Dommage.

Small and noisy Sicilian restaurant in the Village with $10 pasta, appetizer, and salad lunch specials. Tasty pasta dishes are delivered in large pans. The eggplant parmesan and artichoke appetizers were delicious.

A bit cramped for seating and long waiting times. A surprise we were told only after the meal that their credit card system did not work at this day...but as the really tasty food was not too expensive we managed with our cash

È stata una serata magnifica accompagnata da ottimo cibo italiano, alcuni piatti sono rivisitati o proposti in un modo che non ti aspetti ma il gusto e la qualità sono fantastici!!! Tutto accompagnato dalla gentilezza del personale di sala e da un sottofondo di musica italiana. Eccellente!!!

Some of the best Italian food I have ever had (I won’t tell my Italian grandmother). We enjoyed two different flatbreads - I especially liked the slight sweetness of the caponata flatbread. Fantastic earthy taste to the cavatelli with porcini mushrooms. My friends loved their ravioli and lasagna. Excellent and attentive service. We were celebrating my 40th Birthday, but did not tell the staff. We witnessed a very enthusiastic celebration with music and singing for someone else’s birthday which was lovely. I cannot wait to go back there. And food of that quality for $10 (lunch special) in NYC is unheard of.

The food was delicious and we were seated right away. It's a very tiny place, but we knew that going in, and found it to be very quaint. Due to the small quarters, I was a bit concerned about the noise level, but that was not the case; the 4 of us easily conversed the two hours we were there. The staff was extremely friendly and we lucked out with a parking spot right in front of the restaurant. A win-win evening!

Tiny little restaurant with attentive, charming service. Well executed appropriately priced pasta dishes (served in pans!) and ecclectic wines by the glass. It's many good points outweigh the cramped feeling of the dining area. I don't recommend it for claustrophobics, but everyone else should be delighted.

I have walked past Piccola Cucina Enoteca many times and finally made a reservation. All of our appetizers were outstanding and our main courses good and the pricing is fair as well. Unfortunately it was an unseasonably warm day and the tiny dining room, with its 30 or so patrons, overwhelmed the air conditioner above the door making for a noisy and hot dining experience. Each time the door opened the room immediately cooled by a minimum of 15 degrees. On warmer days, the windows are usually thrown open making the intimate atmosphere more bearable.
