Piccola Cucina Enoteca
184 Prince St., 212-625-3200. Lower East Side
A 30-seat wine bar from the owners of Piccola Cucina pours 20 vinos by the glass and offers Sicilian small plates, as well as homemade pastas. The regions of Southern Italy—Campania, Sardinia—dominate the wine list, but grapes from Tuscany and Piedmont make appearences too. Slide into one of the leather banquettes and dig into Sicilian small plates, like beef carpaccio with homemade lemon sauce or arancino rice balls with ragù centers.
