We always try to go to Piatti when we're in LaJolla. The food is great, and we can carry on a conversation over dinner!

There is a great buzz about the place. We rented a house in La Jolla Shores over Christmas & New Year and walked down to Piatti on several occasions, it is by far the best place to enjoy a drink and meal in La Jolla Shores. We always sat at the bar and enjoyed a cocktail before going to our... More

It is crowded and noisy, but the food is excellent. They specialize in Italian food and it is good! We have spent lots of time in Italy and love good Italian food, so we are really picky about it and do enjoy this place.

Local playing partner at Torrey Pines gave us the recommendation for dinner and it was our favorite dinner and ambiance of the week. It is definitely a local favorite and near the waterfront.

We stumbled across this restaurant and were thrilled. The staff was wonderful-very helpful with the menu, etc. Terrific atmosphere. The food was delicious! Try the cauliflower cakes for an appetizer- yum!! We would definitely return.

Piattis is one of my favs and sitting outside under the tree is one of the things that makes it so special. Problem is that there is major construction all around this great restaurant and the construction has not only affected parking and then walking to the restaurant but also the overall dining experience. It was so very disappointing! Couldn't... More

Love their patio and the location is close to a great beach. One can walk to it after eating a great meal. The martinis are absolutely wonderful.

This is our favorite go to spot. Casual, fabulous ambiance, and the best food and hospitality. We always sit outdoors as the banyan tree is spectacular. Never disappointed.

I've been going to Piatti Restaurant for many years and it's always consistently good. It is a friendly comfortable neighborhood type of place. You have the option to eat at the bar, at a table inside or outside on the patio. Personally, I love eating at the bar. Michael, the bartender, will take good care of you and you'll meet... More
