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.
