Went there with my family several times. Good food and great atmosphere. Kids love the play area there and they love the free ice cream (Gelato).

As you sit in, they give you the free salad and buttered garlic bread sticks. Excellent if you are hungry. Reminds me with Olive Garden in the US when it was good... but Piatto is better.

Kids like their Pizza, Onion soup is lovely and they have many dishes to chose from.

For deserts, you must try their gelato.

The only negative is how busy it is for dinner especially on the weekends. Seats are too close to each other and the service is not as good then and it is understandable.

Although this place is big, busy, and bustling, all the elements in place to make it a terrible food experience- the food is surprising quite good. The gelato dessert was a pleasant surprise at the end of the meal. The place has the vibe of a busy airport lounge on the weekends but mid week it's much more relaxing.

Nice atmosphere! Great food and good service. I reeeally love it! kudos to Piatto Jeddah, ill be going back for you Piatto.
I am not so really in to italian food but out of curiosity since everytime i passed Piatto i see a lot of people and as well as cars parked so i conclude indeed this restaurant is really making its name in the italian cuisine here in KSA. Bottomline, its WORTHIT!

Another chain that's hard to spoil. Though they try on occasion.
The food is pretty consistent - though the risotto is too stodgy.
Pizzas are as close to 'real' Italian as I've found anywhere outside Italy.
Service can be hit and miss.
Love the "free" salad bowl as a starter - the dressing is delish!
Can be quite noisy sometimes.

I was a bit disappointed with the menu. my risotto was served within 5 minutes of ordering, which means that it is not freshly cooked. A typical italian chain restaurant. I have neot met one yet that does quality food
