Dishing up traditional fare, you’ll stumble across this Italian restaurant beneath the high-line in Chelsea. The interior is contemporary, painted with different shades of nudes and cappuccino browns, alongside wooden furniture and a sprinkle of leafy plants. The spot serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, as well as sandwiches and happy hour cocktails. On the menu, you can expect the likes of piadina, salads, panini and pasta.
Il Piccolo’s name comes from the Italian word for ‘small’ – a reference to the size of the establishment. But the space is more cosy than stuffy and the plates are moderately portioned, which as the restaurant notes, is the point: quality over quantity.
