Wonderful Italian and Great Atmosphere!

In Santa Clara for business and a few of my co workers and I decided to find a good Italian Restaurant. Based on recommendations by the Hilton where we were staying we decided to give Piatti a try. It was great! It was a nice evening so we had to choice to sit outside and we did. They have a... read more

When this place is good, I love it, but just like Goldilocks, when it is bad it is very, very bad. Twice now weeks apart I have had to send back their signature peach crostada because the pastry was raw. But even worse was the reception. Normally I eat at the bar. I love the bartender Randy, he is welcoming,... More

I went to US recently and on the first evening was taken by my friend to Piatti. I was jet lagged and hungry too. While I ordered 'Salmone', I prayed that it is stink free and delicious - and guess what, my prayers were answered - had I wished something else. :) Jokes apart, the meat was very well cooked...

The staff is great. I personally love the food and eat either in location or take out once a week. You can't go wrong here. Make sure to book a reservation! This place fills up quickly. Artisan cheese platter is a great starter.

This is a good Italian restaurant with excellent atmosphere and a good selection of mains. There is a nice outside dining area with patio heaters for the cooler evenings. Service is excellent.

I have been to this restaurant several times and it is one of our company's go-to establishments for business meals. The menu is just ideal: contemporary California/Northern Italian and not overwhelming with too many choices. The fish and the pasta dishes are always well prepared and enjoyable. One member of our party had the duck breast (which was not exactly... More

Atmosphere is nice, albeit bustling. Plenty of space and light, and the decorations are solid and homey while still being modern. Wine list is solid, especially to order by the glass, and the menu had a good variety of options and flavours. The food was well prepared, with good flavour complexity, but definitely represents various Italian palettes. Overall, a nice... More

Been here 3 times now this year, each time on the suggestion of work colleagues who wanted to continue disucssions over dinner. While it's a great place to do that and convienent to offices, as an italian restaurant, the food is just ok. Have tried a couple of different things, and only dish I've really liked is the pizza... which... More

Must be the area, I thought this place was expensive for the amount you get the food was tasty though. We got a variety of appetizers and pastas and everyone seemed happy with theirs. Service wasn't as good as I would have expected for an upscale place like this.

Excellent food. Great service. Was recommended by local folks as a good casual place to take teenagers. (Not sure if I would categorize it that way, though.)
