Piatti is located in a quiet neighborhood in La Jolla away from both the tourist and business areas. You have to do a little searching to find the lovely place that was very busy on a Sunday night in December. Our server started out very attentive but he drifted away after a while, possibly due to the number of people at the restaurant.

Our food was excellent. They start you with bread and a great dipping sauce. We shared a delicious thin-crust pizza of mission figs, caramelized onions and mozzarella that was a perfect starter for two people. One entree was orecchiette, grilled chicken, sun dried tomatoes, asparagus and Gorgonzola cream and the other was penne pasta with slow cooked lamb, red wine crushed tomato sauce, grana padano and mint. Both were very delicious and large portions. It was hard to choose which was better.

Been going here forever. I usually get take out, it's fine to eat here. It's a bit over priced, but the food is decent and reliable.

Piatti is in a great location at the middle of la Jolla shores. They have great appetizers which uses find better than their main courses. I also love their vinegar dip and bread.May be I always eat to much bread and don't have Tom for main course

My wife and I remembered this restaurant from an earlier visit to La Jolla, and it was as good as or better than we remembered. We really like dining on the patio and enjoyed a unique and tasty salad, homemade pasta, wine and dessert. When we made reservations, we mentioned that it was our anniversary and were greeted with a menu saying “Happy Anniversary” and treated to a complimentary dessert. Reservations are necessary, at least on weekends, and we highly recommend this restaurant.
