Too much noise spoils the experience. You can hardly hear what your shoulder's mate is saying.

I use to go to Piccola Cucina regularly for any kind of occasion.
I am Italian, a real foodie😃, and this is the most amazing Italian food you can have in New York City.
Emanuele, the manager, is fantastic!

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.

Bring your shoehorn! The restaurant is fantastic but it should be called "Every Square Inch." Well, we're in New York after all. But the food's the thing and this place shines! Try the grilled sardines; they're huge and enough for two. Interesting wine list with treats from the south. Great waitstaff, reasonably priced. Go!

Some of the freshest, most well prepared seafood in NYC. The room is tight, but they make it work. All of the staff are friendly and professional. Prices are very reasonable for the quality and portion sizes. Very good wine list accompanied the delicious dishes. Highlights were grilled sardines, trio of fish carpaccio and the whole bronzino. Can’t wait to go back and check out the rest of the menu.

Okay but don’t go out of your way to dine here. It is very cramped to the point of being uncomfortable. The noise level is similar to being inside of a jet engine. The service is good and watching the kitchen is totally entertaining.

As a siciliano, who loves nothing more than great Sicilian food, I’m considering moving from the UES, to SOHO just to be closer to this gastro delight (and to beat the $25 cab fare!)
