Piccolo Angolo

Piccolo Angolo
West Village
Low- and highbrow meet in this little corner of the West Village, where patrons range from big spenders to hungry bohemians. Nothing fancy here, just perfectly cooked pastas in tangy, chunky tomato sauce (try the plump ricotta-stuffed ravioli) and deceptively basic mains, like jumbo shrimp swimming in buttery broth. A simple antipasto of caciocavallo, a subtle Sicilian cheese, is served with baby tomatoes, mozzarella, salami and savory prosciutto. It’s not exactly a temple of style, but getting a table can still be tough.

What a great find! I learned about Piccolo about 15 years ago. I always find that people I know already know about it and it's no wonder. The best Italian food in NYC! You get that family-run comfort immediately. Renato, the chef/owner/dad sits down next to you and tells you the specials (if they are not too busy). The meatballs, the tomato sauce, everything, is just the best. I recently had the stuffed calamari, a special. What a taste treat and a nice big portion too. You need reservations. So, make them!
