Zagat rated and close to Grand Central, Piccolo Fiore is dedicated to providing an unparalleled culinary experience by serving the finest local, hand-crafted Italian fare by a passionate team driven by their love of food.

Our 4-course meal starts with an antipasti course of burrata, mozzarella, roasted peppers, vine ripe tomatoes and basil with baby spinach, goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Then we have a multi-pasta course of gnocchi with mozzarella pesto and rigatoni with roasted eggplant, tomato-basil. Our entrees include grilled swordfish; chicken with prosciutto, sage, fontina cheese and port wine; slow roasted veal with mushroom sauce; ribeye steak or eggplant rolatini with spinach, tomatoes, and mozzarella. Our desserts are chocolate cake or tiramisu. Please note that Juliane will be running this dinner.
