Description: Piatto is a gathering place centred around a passion for fine food, fabulous wines, friends and family. Check out the little gems we've come across—diverse wines from across the globe, authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizza, coffee and fabulous desserts—all in a casual atmosphere and with reasonable prices. In our world, authenticity is big. Our pizzaiolo use ingredients and procedures regulated by the Italian governing association (VPN)—so you experience a "true" pizza like you would find in the energetic pizzerias in Naples, Italy (but without the airfare).

“Do yourself a solid. Go.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

This place is amazing. There is good pizza in Halifax (eg, Salvatore's, Morris East) but this place is better, in my opinion. Neapolitan style. Beautiful ingredients. Lunch special was reasonably priced. Arugula, walnut, blue cheese salad was decent. The daily pizza (Genovese) was delicious. The Stephanie pizza was amazing. Just go.

“Best Pizza Ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We read about this restaurant in a Halifax Magazine and as Pizza lovers decided we must try it. Opened only a year it is getting good press in Halifax and rightly so. The decor is sleek and minimal and the staff are very warm and professional. Now on to the pizza. They are a VPN certified pizzeria which means they are adhering to the strict traditional methods followed by the Vera Pizza Napelotana Association. That means special flour from Italy, San Marzano tomatoes crushed daily, Fior di Latte Mozzarella handmade and all other ingredients super fresh. It also must be cooked in a wood burning oven which gives you the most wonderful blister on the crust.
We ordered two pizzas, one dinner sized 11 inch and one lunch size 9 inch which comes with the best Caesar salad I have had in a long while.
Both pizzas, the pollo pesto and Cielo, were so tasty with chewy thin crust and fresh toppings. I highly recommend this restaurant and only wish we were locals and could visit more often!

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Thought we would try a fancy pizza place to take out some food and chose Piatto. The pizza is fairly expensive considering size but the ingredients are great. Tasted very good. Nice to have tried but i don't think we would get it again.

“Great wood oven pizzas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I had lunch at Piatto today, after a friend recommended it to me. The lunch special (any 9" pizza and a salad) was good value, and there are plenty of options. The very nice cook gave me a demo on how to work with pizza dough, something I have never quite figured out on my own. I don't go out for pizza often, but I would definitely go back to Piatto.

“Great local spot, super service, wonderful pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Spotted Piatto while walking by from our hotel and decided to check it out. First time there (they asked) so the seating person explained about the food, the pizza, how it worked and all that - very helpful. Had a pretty straightforward pizza and it was delicious. The oil to drizzle on or dip the pizza in was very nice. Not a big pie, but the crust and ingredients were very fresh and extremely tasty. Would go back in a heartbeat.
