I have been going to Piatti for a long time, and the quality of food is always good. The pasta is always fresh. It is a very nice neighborhood restaurant.

La Jolla is wll known for its great food. Piatti provides excellent Italian food and wine in a most pleasant setting. Try the safron pappardelle, one of a wide range of pastas available. Reservations recommented.

We really enjoyed our meal here. My hubby had the bruscetta appetizer and I had Caesar salad both were really excellent. For my entree I had the ravioli special with cheeses and mushroom filling and hubby had a shrimp Pappardelle dish with spinach that he really enjoyed. We tried a pomegranate limeade and berry lemonade which were refreshing and not... More

Piatti in La Jolla is not only the best fine dinning in La Jolla Shores but in all of La Jolla. Sure, it doesn't have the views of other locations but the free views of a walk along La Jolla Shores or in La Jolla Village are free. The food at Piatti's is excellent, reasonably priced, and the ambiance is... More

I disliked there was not gluten free bread. Loved that fact there were gluten free option since Italian food has always been my favorite. Expensive but worth it!

My wife and I travel around the world and visit the best restaurants. PIATTI will not disappoint you. The Italian food and service is a 10 in the 1 to 10 scale. This is the reason that the place is busy. We recommend it and we will be happy to comeback

We have dined here on several occassions and we are always happy with the food and service. We especially enjoy the complimentary bread/olive oil dipping sauce. We always recommend this establishment to our friends and family when they come into town. I especially enjoy the home made sasauge dish and my wife likes the orchette entree.

A friend recommended Piatti to us for our trip from NY City. I reserved a table for us before we left-- smart, because it was busy even at 6 pm!! My husband, four year old and I sat out on the patio- a lovely space. Our waiter was attentive, informative and friendly. The food was amazing! We started with the... More

Piatti is a chain restaurant in La Jolla Shores. Don't go for lunch in the summer, as you won't find a parking space. The dinners are always good, and it is great fun to eat on the tasteful outdoor terrace. They have a nice wine list with some reasonable prices. I have been there many times over the years, and...

I loved this restaurant. The food is fantastic and the service exceptional. If you can get into Jessica's section, do - she is smart and sassy and fun as well as super-efficient, and she'll tell you off-menu order options that are great. Food: don't miss the ravioli in lemon cream sauce, or the penne with lamb. The cauliflower cakes are... More
