We had a socializing event in the back of the restaurant, followed by dinner. The 'small food' before dinner consisted of really nice cheeses (I'm a big cheese fan) and we were served very well. The atmosphere in that room was ok but I expected more. The food was good but again I expected way better.

I've eaten twice at Piatti. They have a diverse standard Italian menu alongside a very nice Gluten Free menu. This is a popular restaurant so make a reservation. Give yourself five extra minutes to find parking, especially at lunch.

My co-workers and I had reservations for lunch before a meeting. Due to ridiculous traffic on 101, several of the group arrived late. Server Lindsay to the rescue. We ordered and she confirmed what we'd chosen could be prepared quickly. Sandwiches and pasta were very good. We had a great meal and made it to our meeting on time. Piatti's... More

Food is ok. They have drinks, so that's a plus for this area. Walking distance to one of the hotels I stay in. Food is ok, but watch out if you order beef - I've yet to have it cooked correctly.

The starters were great - everything was looking up. Then the main course arrived - linguini with clams, seafood - and chilli - but there was no chilli at all - no spice.

The restaurant is kind of expensive, the atmosphere is not that great especially when you are with kids. I wish they would redecorate inside. I was super happy with their services fast and efficient.

Good pasta (linguine) with sea food and fish. Leggermente piccante. I've apreciated the dessert, suggested by the weiter (pudding with raisins and ice cream)
