I've eaten here countless times for lunch and it's never failed to produce excellent food. Nice outdoor patio seating below the sidewalk if the weather's right, great for people watching. Two dining rooms inside, I prefer the one to the right. Very friendly owner and staff. The prices are very reasonable for the quality. The perfect place for a tasty... More

While walking along Newbury Street in the late afternoon it was the beautifully placed white flowers among the green foliage that drew my attention to this restaurant Without any hesitation I decided to go in. It was pleasant experience in every sense. Ambient, service and of course food. What I loved was the small servings. That was perfect I only... More

We had a very enjoyable early dinner at rehearsal following a wedding rehearsal. The food and wine was fine and the bread was delicious. The house red wine was satisfying as was the salad. I was pleased to aided by Josephine who helped us sit together as a family and enjoy our time together and her food. We were pleased... More

Hi! This is now my 3rd attempt to submit an earnest, thoughtful, and honest review so here it goes: It was a gorgeous sunny day yesterday, Friday July 31, 2015, and we were strolling on Newbury St. We passed by and wanted a "sunny" meal at Piattini. There were tables outside so we thought this would be easy; I think... More

We went there on a Saturday evening. We had to wait 20 mins, but it payed off. Food was delicious and not too sophisticated, and the back bay area is vivid and wonderful for a walk in Saturday night.

Friendly staff. Nice searing outside. Food pretty good, though agree with some re flavourless dishes...the gnocchi and calamari were serious let downs All in all good but slightly overpriced. May return. 3.5 stars.

Not sure what else I could say,...I was hoping the mediocre/negative reviews regarding the food were wrong. Well my friends, they weren't. OK food, but the wine was very good.
