Had lunch for 5 at Piatti on Dec 19, exiting adventure in a bad sense. While the food was very good and the service adequate. It was kind of crowded on a Friday noon but they managed the crowd well particularly since we did not have reservations and had a group of 5. The wine list has enough depth to... More

This place is nestled on a little side street in La Jolla. It has a great menu with very reasonable prices. The food is great and so is the service. I suggest sitting outside on their patio. Even in November it was great as they have heat lamps around so you never feel cold. There is a beautiful old tree... More

Piatti is consistent with the good food and great service. They accommodate big groups. We had a family celebration with 12 people. Everyone ordered something different and were all happy with their food. Parking can be a challenge. We will go back.

Piatti's always serves delicious Italian food. Hot, tasty, properly. You may have trouble getting in here (get reservations) but you won't regret it. Only one negative is, it is abit on the noisy side, having all hard surfaces all around. Still, were it not for that it might get a 5 on the scorecard. If you have the chance try... More

This was a great meal at a reasonable price. Sitting under the giant tree on the patio made this a very enjoyable dinner.

Our friends who live a block away from this restaurant suggested this restaurant and glad she did because the food was great along with the service. They made a great martini. Also thought the price was reasonable. The place was crowded along with the bar. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Found out that they also have a restaurant near... More

We were here a few years ago and hoped it would be as delightful as before. It didn't disappoint. We were in town for a conference and made a reservation for the patio on a lovely fall evening. It was a charming scene with a garden setting. We split a few dishes, and everything was freshly prepared and delicious --... More

We initially had a late reservation for outdoor seating, but we were so hungry so we headed over 1,5 hours earlier hoping they´d have a table for us. They did have a high table available by the bar and we were happy with it. The ambiance is very nice! Our waitress however was stressed and we felt very rushed. When... More
