We happened on Piccolo's additional, new location on West 40th (@ 8th). I think it has recently opened. It's quite small and quaint. The decor is cute and different than anything else you'll find in the region. Italian newspapers from the 40's furnish the walls and stool and bar areas are where you can enjoy your espresso & croissant (or panini). Nice friendly staff and good coffee. Check it out.
