Great dishes at reasonable prices

Good creative small plates at decent prices for Newbury street. I really liked the mushroom flatbread, not skimping on the mushrooms. My wife's salad was a bit too boring for her, but overall we liked it.

Piattini is my go to restaurant! For a quick bite to eat or celebrating a special occasion I am never disappointed. The food, wine, and service are exceptional. I have had four private parties at Piattini, and Josephine always goes above and beyond to make the occasion extra special. She has customized menus, provided themed decorations, and even beautiful flowers.... More

Found Piattini on the web. Very friendly attentive staff, including the friendly "training" waitress. We shared 3 Piattini. Ravioli stuffed with goats cheese (daily special), aubergine with tomato & cheese, both excellent, & caprese (slightly lacking in flavour.) To follow my husband choose sword fish (daily special) & I had pasta with scampi, tomatoes and white wine sauce. Both excellent... More

The food was good, but nothing fantastic. Perhaps we had been spoiled by dinners at other restaurants. Staff was attentive, but again, nothing special.

We enjoyed a tasty meal here in this small restaurant. We opted to just have a selection of starters - 7 between the 3 of us and that proved to be sufficient. We also had desserts which were also good. All the dishes we had were well delicious and well prepared.

We went for the setting, wanting to sit outside and for the general menu of Italian foods. They have a great selection of wines and do wine flights as well as tastes. The chocolate torta was wonderful as was the roasted cauliflower with balsamic and the lobster ravioli. The roasted eggplant ravioli and the almond spinach salad were very bland.... More

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent meal here. We ordered the lobster mac & cheese and meatball for appetizers and shared the ziti con pollo as a main course. We enjoyed the food and would eat here again if we were locals. We were shocked at the reasonable prices on the bottles of wine and enjoyed the Uppercut Cab... More

Visited this restaurant every time we have been in Boston. The food is excellent. The portions are good but you can share the small plates for a varied selection of dishes. All served to a high quality.

Went with a couple friends for dinner on a Friday evening. We had a reservation but asked to sit outside when we arrived, so had a drink at the bar (a table opened up in about 10 minutes). Nice vibe, nice space. We each just had a salad and a pasta dish--everything was quite good though only one of the... More
