My husband and I made our 2nd visit to Piccoli Trattoria on 6th Avenue this evening. The first time was a Saturday night, and the place was packed; this time was early on a very cold Sunday evening (coinciding with the Giants' game), so it was fairly empty. Both meals were lovely--we've now had 1 fish, 2 pastas and a risotto, and loved them all. Prices are very fair, staff is helpful and friendly, and the site is cozy (we had been in the space last year when it was an Indian restaurant--memorable for being one of the top 5 worst meals we ever had!).
I suggest reservations on weekends, and highly suggest giving the restaurant a try.
