This Northern Italian restaurant, which used to be farther down Boston Post Road in Rye Neck, is located in a cozy 1792 landmark, the former home of James Fenimore Cooper. The menu offers lots of pastas and chicken, as well as select seafood, veal, and steak dishes accompanied by a range of tomato and white-wine sauces. For dessert: tartufo dessert drizzled in chocolate sauce and served with a cappuccino.
La Piccola Casa (“The Little House”) faces Harbor Island Park; outdoor seating comes with a view.
Open every day for lunch and dinner.
