One of our favorite restaurant officially opened their 4th location in New York City! Piccola Cucina, in the Upper East Side, should definitely be on your to-go list!
We’ve been to Piccola Cucina a couple of times and we never hesitate to go back again and again, and again!
Celebrities like the mega influencer Chiara Ferragni and her husband Fedez, and other big names like Owen Wilson, Adam Devine, Katie Holmes, Cuba Gooding Jr, Duran Duran and so many others also love the spot! You might even bump into one of them!
Their 4th location was scheduled to open early March and now they were finally able to celebrate their grand opening….and obviously they did not disappoint!
As soon as we arrived, the outdoor seating immediately called our attention. Every detail and the careful treatment with all the details made the area super cozy and inviting.
Having recently opened, we were happy to see they were already pretty busy with old (and many new) clients having fun and respecting all safety protocols.
Well, we were excited to try their Upper East Side menu and this time, different from the previous post we wrote about them, we left space for their delicious desserts!
This is what we had:
- Antipasti: Octopus Caprese with burrata cheese , tomato confit and basil
- Main Dish #1: Pasta – Busiati with salmon and artichokes
- Main Dish #2: Pasta – Spaghetti with seafood (mussles, shrimp and calamaris)
- Dessert: Tiramisu
- Dessert: Semifreddo Mandorla – an ice cream-like option!
We paired the meals with red wine and an Espresso Martini – to give it a twist! And, if you enjoy Espresso Martinis, they really know how to make this cocktail to perfection!
Chef Philip Guardione truly never disappoints and is always adding amazing new creations to the menu or the daily specials, so you can be sure to be surprised – regardless of which location you decide to go to!
And lastly, of course the staff and the entire team was extremely knowledgeable with all the dishes, super polite and friendly and most of all, very welcoming…making our night a perfect dinner in New York City! Bravissimo!
We can wait for our next time!
