Open for Business: Piccola Uva, 165 Seventh Avenue

A wine bar/ pizzeria from the owner of Tutta Pasta has opened on Seventh Avenue between Garfield and Carroll, in the space that was last occupied by gilled chicken joint Chickadee Chick.

The small restaurant, simply appointed with exposed brick and ceiling beams, wine bottle racks, and an open kitchen, serves up a focused selection of antipasti, salads, grilled meats, and brick-oven pizza (the whole menu can be found here).

Piccola Uva isn't unique for the neighborhood, but a no-frills place to grab a couple glasses of wine, some prosciutto and cheese, and a pizza will most likely not be frequently empty. They also sell pizza by the slice for $1, geared toward schoolkids looking for lunch.

It seats about 35 in two rooms, and when it gets warmer there will be outdoor seating as well.

Piccola Uva Wine Bar and Pizza, 165 Seventh Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215.

ugh, another article about this place? Guess it's better than an empty store

It seems likely to me that this may hurt Piccoli Trattoria (http://www.yelp.com/biz/piccoli-trattoria-brooklyn) as they have such similar names.

More from the owner of Tutta Pasta. Um, yawn. Tutta Pasta sucks.

Also unhappy about how similar the name is to Piccoli, which is phenomenal and one of the nabe's best restaurants.

No need to worry. If it's owned by Tutta Pasta, it will not be any competition for Piccoli Trattoria, which is wonderful.

Hope they to ok. Yeah I could jump on the "It is mediocre at best" train" but 7th Ave has become so bleak for decent restaurants at any level of cuisine and price point are rare that any opening gets a wave from me.

Went Friday 1pm. place empty, ordered 1$ slice and served smallish sparsely topped TOTALLY BURNED slice ... reeked of burnt toast taste, ate it saved crust and showed the Mexican pizzaolos ... BURROS , when you offer a $1 slice to get NEW CUSTOMERS to try you out ... don't serve shit.

Went in week before last. I wish them luck but this place needs some serious work. Pizza crust was SUPER thick, like imagine a deep-dish pizza but all crust. Not at all what I would consider "brick oven" pizza (do they indeed have a brick oven anyway?), but perhaps this is some people's taste.

They also say they're a wine bar in their name, but yet only carry 7 bottles of Red wine (5 of which were out of stock when we were there).

2 large televisions dominate the room, and the music is powered by a local adult contemporary radio station (ads and all) - which left me wondering what kind of atmosphere they were really going for. Lower the lights, plug in an ipod with some italian music, and get rid of the TVs.

It was early on and they had just opened a couple days prior, so I'll give them a pass...but here's hoping they can work it out.
