Piccola Cucina Returns to Ox Pasture for the Holidays

Piccola Cucina, among the top-restaurants in Montana, returns to Ox Pasture exclusively for the Holiday season. Opening today, the restaurant will serve signature Sicilian dishes with a local twist. 

A location that would normally only be open for the summer months, will be welcoming customers for  the whole month of December. “We are happy to greet all of our loyal clientele of the area and newcomers, of course. The state of Montana has given us throughout the years great satisfaction and our  customers have brought us a lot of joyful moments. For this reason, we have decided to experience the Holiday season at Ox Pasture, in the hope to create more memorable moments” says Philip Guardione, chef and owner of Piccola Cucina. 

A destination dining spot that attracts regional diners and tourists visiting the area will be serving dishes  belonging to the southern Italian cuisine, with flavors and ingredients that are mainly locally sourced.  Popular for the Italian atmosphere and its flavors, the vast menu offers Sicilian specialties like the Arancini Catanesi (Sicilian Rice Ball filled with Meat Ragu), Maccheroni Alla Norma (Maccheroni Pasta in  Tomato Sauce with Fried Eggplant and Dried Ricotta on top). 

Finding themselves at the center of the artisanal gastronomic scene of Red Lodge, the meats the restaurant serves are locally raised to coexist with herbs grown in local farms. Philip Guardione works directly with nearby farmers and ranchers in order to bring to the table the freshest and safest ingredients that make up  for delicious dishes like Ravioli with Buffalo Ragu and Parmesan Cream or Veal Shank with Mashed  Potatoes. 

The energy and hospitality of Philip’s team is exuberant & family-like, making this Ox Pasture location the perfect restaurant for a cozy meal with the ones you love this Holiday season. 

Piccola Cucina at Ox Pasture located at 7 N Broadway Ave, Red Lodge, is now open with hours of 11:30  AM to 10 PM Tues-Sun, through January 1st, 2022.
