Intimate surroundings, white tablecloths set against a burgundy backdrop, and waiters clad in tuxedos make this a romantic spot, but it's not just couples who come to dine on the fine northern Italian fare served here. Handmade pastas are a specialty, and Caesar salad for two is made table-side. Linguine is tossed with tuna, capers, olives, and wine sauce; penne in spicy tomato-cream sauce gets a splash of vodka; and shrimp are sautéed with mushrooms and prosciutto in champagne and cream. The menu also includes chicken, steak, and veal preparations. The list of wines is extensive.

My husband and I found this restaurant on a recent trip home from NYC. What a great find! The service was incredible. Our waiter made wonderful food and wine recommendations. We started our meal with fresh mozzarella and red peppers which were incredible. My husband's mushroom raviolis were covered in a lovely mushroom based cream sauce that was very tasty. I ordered linguine in a light sauce that included olives! We ordered banana's foster for dessert
and were surprised when the chef came to a table and prepared the dessert in front of us. We will be visiting Piccolo Paese again!
