Little sister to Soho staple Piccola Osteria Enoteca, Piccola Osteria Cucina serves up similarly tasty Sicilian dishes in a trattoria-style space. Oversize glass doors to the sidewalk swing open in nicer weather, giving the intimate dining room a breezy feel. The food here is straight-forward and flavorful. To start, the Involtini Di Pesce Spada—grilled slices of swordfish wrapped around mozzarella and topped with a savory tomato sauce—is well-seasoned and elegantly plated. The grilled octopus served atop a salad of cherry tomatoes, scallions, and capers is equally well-prepared, with just a hint of charred zest. Homemade pastas dominate the main course selection; for the meat lover, cavatelli with mushrooms and a decadent lamb ragu is rich, but worth every bite, while the slightly lighter busiante is served with fresh eggplant chunks and topped with a simple tomato sauce and ricotta cheese. The wine list is concise but varied, so you’re sure to find something to match your meal perfectly at any price point.
