Great veal scaloppine but only fair service. The staff spent all of there time with a large party leaving us feeling largely ignored.

Piatti is my favorite restaurant in La Jolla shores. A quaint, charming house for inside dining and a lovely patio shaded by an old tree, for al fresco dining. The variation on the balsamic vinegar/olive oil dip, with warm bread, is almost enough with a bottle of wine! It's fantastic! But you will want to continue on with any salad/entree... More

Met with friends and co-workers to enjoy a very delightful Italian fare. We were seated quickly at a large round table and despite the a moderately noisy environment could easily converse and enjoy our menu choices. From the noodles to the steak, food was tasty and not over done with the garlic and seasoning.

It was my second time there after some years and I got the feeling it is not as good as it was. It could have been a bad choice of all of us at the table, a bad night or maybe it is really worse then before. But what really bothered us was the noise. Almost impossible for our group... More

beautiful and tasty restaurant, but one bathroom, was always locked. "even though we have a 200 seat restaurant, we are grandfathered in to the old commode ". The people in charge of letting this happen should be ashamed of themselves. Stand there long enough and listen to the poor waitstaff yelling, "corner, corner, corner," to navigate the hallway from the... More

We live 5 minutes away from this restaurant and have sampled its menu numerous times. It is one of our favorite restaurants in all of San Diego. It's always crowded, but the service is great. My favorites are the lasagna and ravioli with lemon sauce.
