We have been going to Piatti for years - it's consistently great food with excellent service... We go often for lunch and also for dinner. Parking is tough, but they have valet if you lose patience. Worth the trip!

Very good Italian restaurant recommended to us by a local. Food was excellent but the atmosphere was even better. Make a point of reserving a table in the centre courtyard. I really enjoyed the penne with lamb which was suggested by our very friendly server. It was a nice 10 minute stroll from where we were staying at the Hotel La Jolla.

We had 2 hrs for lunch in La Jolla on our way to airport. We stumbled upon this fabulous restaurant simply by walking up & down the street. The outdoor ambiance caught our attention, the instant welcoming greeting sold us, outdoor courtyard was charming, but the FOOD was fabulous, can't say enough!

I generally eat here once or twice a year when in the area -- it's always very good but I get the feeling they've been trying to get more adventurous which is both good and bad. I would suggest sticking to the more traditional stuff; house wine by the glass is inexpensive and good

We have been dining at Piatti in La Jolla, CA for a number of years and it is consistently excellent in its food and service. The restaurant is usually crowded and noisy, but does not deter from the experience as everything is wonderful, starting with the cocktails. They make a terrific lemon drop. As for the food, everything is of superior quality. The calamari is done very well as are the wonderfully varied salads. The main courses whether it be the lasagne, penne with lamb and mint or the marinated, grilled chicken breast are all perfectly prepared and presented. The wait staff is attentive and friendly and will do whatever it takes to make the customer satisfied. The restaurant has a lovely outdoor patio and the main room though crowded is comfortable. The only downside to the evening is finding parking which can be difficult on a busy summer evening as it is a beach community. I highly recommend Piatti for a wonderful dining experience.
