Great fish piccata!

I'm a big Picatta fan. Chicken, veal, lamb, whatever. Piatti does a very nice fish Picatta. Here's the trick. The Chef prepares this dish with the lowly Tilapia to a very delicate white wine, tangy flavor, on a bed of garlic saute'd spinach which is outstanding. Most fish Picatta's I've had used a... read more

Food: excellent. Service: the worst. When someone has to stop and practically beg folks for service, you know you are in trouble. The bar? warm and friendly, truly welcoming and the kind of place you would want to call home. The restaurant? food is good, not outstanding. Bread is divine as is the olive oil dipping. But if you want... More

Piatti's at The Quarry on Basse Road has been opened for over 15 years now and continues to offer great tasting italian food. A seond location was opened a few months ago by Eilan Hotel area on I-10 and 1604. I still prefer the "original" Piatti's on Basse Road and loved the new atmosphere and patio with new furniture and... More

My wife and I shared the goat cheese appetizer with crostini - it was average, nothing exciting. We shared the mixed salad with champaign dressing - same reaction. For a main course I ordered the gnocchi in brodetto with pork meatballs - The dumplings themselves were light and pillowy as they should be, the sauce however was revolting it tasted... More

I had a very disappointing meal last night. Although I do appreciate a choice of small portions for some entrees, I do NOT appreciate small flavor! I ordered penne pasta with Italian sausage and a a descriptive sauce. There was not enough sauce and I had to request more. The sausage was absolutely tasteless. I did not eat much of... More

Was told about the Alamo Quarry with it's fine shops and restaurants. Found this place and will not regret going in. Very helpful waiter made some good suggestions and was not wrong. The trout in lemon sauce was excellent. To end the night, the tiarimus was just wonderful! Recommend this place highly, but try to sit away from the bar... More

This restaurant is cozy and comfortable and located in the Quarry area of San Antonio. It provides a nice selection of menu choices and delicious entrees, appetizers and desserts to choose from. This is the second time I have visited this restaurant and both times were equally enjoyable. I would continue to frequent this restaurant in the future!

Went there for lunch on valentines day since everywhere else seems to have a long waiting period or needed to have reservations. We decided to go to piatti's and we're pleasantly surprised there was no wait. The complimentary bread with the olive oil mix with some other sauce was very good. I got the salmon with spinach and it was... More

Lovely establishment and great staff. It's always good when the waiter can give you suggestion and the food is amazing. The Seafood Stew was hands down, the best I've had in San Antonio. All of the food was tasty and fresh. The calamari wasn't chewy and over cooked and the broth was perfect. The staff was very attentive amidst the... More
