A truly Sicilian experience in Soho. Philip Guardione, owner of Piccola Cucina, comes from the school of Sergio Mei who has trained many talented chefs around the world. We’ve visited many times this restaurant and we’ve always experienced a solid and traditional cucina italiana with an authentic Sicilian accent. The restaurant is small and may look touristic but flavors are direct, incisive, and gourmand.On the menu we suggest some simple and delicious grilled or fried sardines, a well made arancino (catanese style). On our last visit we had some very succulent maccheroni alla norma (with eggplant in tomato sauce and ricotta cheese). A wide range of fresh fish and a well cooked lamb complete the experience. The wine list displays a huge work of research: if you’re an Etna lover, this is the right place to be. Friendly and attentive service.
