Piccolo Forno

Piccolo Forno is as old-school as it gets when it comes to delicious Italian fare. Pastas and pizza dough are made fresh daily, pizzas are cooked hot in a wood-fired oven, and braised rabbit is often available. Chef and owner Domenic Branduzzi and his family hail from Tuscany, and their roots are very evident in the cuisine. The salads are fresh and light with ingredients like arugula, white beans, and tuna. Pizzas are simply perfect; the best-seller features mascarpone, fresh mozzarella and speck. Piccolo Forno serves the city' best lasagna with housemade noodles, ragu, and béchamel. Reservations are accepted for parties of five or more. There will be a wait for smaller parties, but put in your name and cell and head kiddie corner to the Round Corner Catnina for a drink.
