Been to Piatti's many times. I keep trying to order something different than the grilled bacon wrapped romaine, but can't help myself. The first time I ordered it, well that was IT. I know the rest of the food is very good, because my friends tell me it is. Next time I go, I really am going to try something... More

This place is great. You have to try the baked risotto. Found this place when we spent the weekend in la jolla. Now is one of our must stops in sd

Excellent and varied selection of menu items, from small to large. Superb wine selection. Knowledgeable waitstaff. We had gone there twice when last in San Diego and couldn't wait to get there again

Second visit here and both times were outstanding. The wait staff was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Food was superb and the outdoor dining area is friendly and very comfortable. Next time back in LaJolla this will be another stop. Cannot beat it.

We ate here as a family while visiting La Jolla recently. It was a truly memorable experience. Highlights were the Caesar salad with anchovy, veal scallopine, fresh bread and pappardelle pasta with shrimp. Lemon torte for dessert was outstanding. We would definitely return.

Loved the service and the amazing food! We ate outside on the patio - just perfect! Giuseppe was the best- so gracious and added to the fun. Tom, the manager, made sure we were well taken care of and we had the best time.

We had our wedding reception for 30 people on the patio at Piatti on June 15th. Every phase of our experience was wonderful. The planner, Kasey, was a pleasure to work with and offered great suggestions and advice. The menu was varied and the food excellent. Our wait-staff was uncomparable! Considering the quality of our experience, we found Piatti to... More

Local Italian restaurant in La Jolla. Party of 13 and we ate on the patio. Reasonable prices and the food was terrific. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the time we spent at the restaurant. Great place!

Most dishes (3 appetizers + 5 dishes) were faithful to real Italian flavors with 'al dente' pasta light tomato sauce and flavorful ons ( abit too much garlic for real Italian). Perfect Negroni cocktail and honest wine. Home made Tiramissu. Looks and tastes a family owned restaurant, not a network as it is.

We had always made Piattis a must-go meal in previous visits to La Jolla. It's still good with its wonderful setting and outdoor seating. Our server was great and we loved the bread with vinegar and olive oil. Our food was OK, not quite as good as we remembered. Still, this is good place to eat.
