Per Zagat:

For “memorable Nuevo Mexican”, these “festive” cantinas are “the place to go” for “upscale” (yet well-priced) cooking and “interesting cocktails”; the “small” Park Slope original can feel “cramped” (“go when the backyard is open”).

Per NY Magazine:

“The owners of South Slope’s Piccoli Trattoria make the most of a limited space, turning a cramped corner café into a cozy dinner nook with minimal décor including tin-tiled ceilings, an open façade, and well-worn seating. Chef Andres Rodas’ (Cipriani) relatively conservative menu surprises…”
