Three of us ate a late dinner here on a Friday night. We tried the risotto and two fish dishes. They were each ok. I tried the halibut with a black rice base. The fish was good; the rice was only ok. With all the great food available the meal was good, but not exceptional. The location was very convenient... More

we had a reservation for a later time, but when we arrived, the maitre'd sat us immediately... went there for pasta and got what we wanted... our waiter was very attentive, even though he had two large tables... the food was tasty...

I've eaten here many times, mostly for lunch but also a few dinners. There is a nice patio in front and it's dog friendly. There is a decent wine list and a nice menu of Italian dishes. The service has always been excellent. A nice "go to" place when wondering where to go and a nice place, lunch or dinner.

Ate here on a business trip with coworkers. The food is good, and everything tastes fresh. It would be nice if they had a few more options on their food & wine menu (specially for vegetarians), but we all enjoyed our meals. I had a veggie pizza. It is one of those open kitchen concept places where you can see... More

A very good Italian restaurant within the Rivermark Plaza. If you are a salad person, the Chicken Romaine salad will be the number choice. I had this salad in my previous trip. For the current 2 visits, I had roast chicken breast on one day and magherita pizza on another day. Both dishes tasted very good. If you are planning... More

The highlights of this restaurant were the fresh bread with olive oil and the appetizers. We enjoyed eating both the prosciutto and olives appetizer as well as the mozzarella with pea sprouts appetizer. My meal was the squid ink fettuccine. The noodles were an interestingly black color from the ink. Unfortunately, the entree was quite salty. We ended with the... More

Not a great place if you want to talk to your guests and colleagues. The food was OK at best they should stick to pizza and pasta. My halibut was well over cooked and on the border of being burnt. There are far more reasonable places to eat better in the area that also do pasta!!!!

I was pleased about the food quality and the very closed taste to an Italian food. Invited by colleagues I was quite skeptical to have a decent Italian meal but I have to admit I changed my mind. Very good service, tasty food and good selection of wines and drinks. Closing the dinner with the "panna cotta" was a plus.... More

I've a dinner meeting with a few business partners in mid May in this Italian restaurant. To my surprise, it is very crowded even at 6:30pm PT for both indoor and outdoor spacing. It's good (and my recommendation) that you made a reservation in order to secure a table. Since the restaurant is almost full, you would expect that the... More

Piatti's has a nice atmosphere, with open and airy restaurant. The food is good, while the service is great. The bread that they serve before the meal is great; it is warm, served with olive oil and vinegar. My favorite is polenta fries, which are on the lunch menu. The mussels are great! The lunch and dinner menus have a... More
