We come to this area periodically for business, and always visit Piatti's. In the past, we've had concerns about the service, but on last night's visit, the service was very good and the food, delicious (except the Brussel sprouts and spinach sides, a little tasteless). Otherwise, crusty warm bread, excellent lamb shank and polenta, well-prepared risotto and a very interesting... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner. Service was great, they have quality child's menu. I ordered a side of Brussel sprouts that were not completely cooked or seasoned. I should have just sent it back but we were in a hurry.

I love the atmosphere at Piatti, somewhat rustic, yet polished at the same time. The food is great and the presentation always beautiful. It's my favorite restaurant in the area. However the portion size is small and the price is high. We have stopped going because we do not perceive it as a good value. If you've got bucks to... More

This busy place looked very nice with a good menu. However when I got home with the pizza I had ordered to go I found it did not have one of the key ingredients Iisted in the menu description Had they told me they were out I would have happily ordered something else but to get home late with a...

The place is ok but not as cozy as it could have been. Unfortunately the total grade will be negatively impacted by the ambience. Feels like somethng is missing and the "soul" is missing. Outside of that the food was ok but not great, we had pizza but they were far to "fluffy" to be called Italian style (and believe... More

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.
