We were told “absolutely no changes” could be made to our food if we had a person in our party who had a food allergy, even if we simply asked for the sauce on the side rather than on the food. Even though it explicitly...states on the menu that the kitchen will try its best to accommodate. Food was over-salted, pasta was over cooked. Not recommending or going back.More

Piccola has excellent food with a wonderful balance of flavors. The Frutti di Mare and the Branzino were simply sensational. The place is well located and easy to get to. It has outdoor seating and great service.

Sat outside and enjoyed an early dinner. The burrata was TERRIFIC. The cacio e pepe didn't work for me. It was more like a linguini with light white sauce.

This place is phenomenal!!!!!! Great food all the way around. I don’t need to go to the varied steak houses in Westchester County or New York City anymore! I’ve been to Picola in Dobbs Ferry, NY about 20 times and 19 times I’ve gotten a...steak. It is amazing! They serve it with homemade potato chips on top, incredible and of course with steak I always have some pasta, please try the Caccio Pepe pasta! THE SERVICE AND STAFF ARE GREAT!!!!More

If you want authentic Italian food made with fresh, quality ingredients, go to Piccola Trattoria. Inventive cooking with recipes that range in origin from Sicily to Piedmont. I had the fried calamari with pepperoncini sauce which felt Calabrian and then the Frutti di Mare over...squid ink pasta which felt coastal Campanian. The sauce for the calamari was a perfect choice for the dish that was unexpected. Loved the new take on what you would normally expect. The assorted fish over squid ink pasta was fantastic. Finished dinner with a lightened version of zabaglione over berries. It was nice to go out for quality food that’s prepared well. Can’t wait to go back.More

My first time here last weekend and I loved it! The food is amazing, and nice portions . I had the Vongole pasta dish...BANGING! They were out of clams but gracefully they suggested shrimps instead and it was amazing. I am a foodie so I...get very excited over great food. Service was top notch, very nice, cozy place. Owner/chef Sergio came by and greeted us at the table Malbec wine was great, and the dessert to die for. If you are in the area and looking for great Italian food, stop here and you will see for yourself. Enjoy!More

Ok guys - First of all we need to support our small local businesses....so this is beyond an added bonus since Chef Penachio is creating feasts which you can enjoy at home with your family. His hard work...and the work of his staff - is...beyond remarkable. The food is OVER THE TOP! So is the value. Treat your family to something delicious. I personally THANK THE ENTIRE STAFF!!! Be sane, be safe and keep smiling.More

Small and very friendly restaurant with lovely ambience and delicious food. The pastas, ribeye and seafood we ordered were nicely done, and we appreciated visits from the chef. Highly recommend Piccola Trattoria for its welcoming atmosphere and the obvious care that goes into its food.

Intimate ambience. Family atmosphere. Delicious food and caring service. Baked eggplant made with with ricotta, mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce, Insalata con gorgonzola made with arugula, endive and radicchio, gorgonzola cheese, roasted shaved almonds and dried cranberries and balsamic vinaigrette dressing, and Pappardelle con nocciole with home...made pasta and butter nut squash in a cream sauce are all excellent choices. A delightful dinner.More
