We had one of the best meals of our lives last night at Pianeta! The Chicken Marsala as well as the Chicken Fettucine were glorious. Moreover, the service and the setting were extraordinary.

Last year we were in Italy on 2 vacations, yet Pianeta's pasta is the best that we have found.

Enjoy.

I have eaten at Pianeta over the past 15 years and have always found it to be warm and cozy in the winter months and cool and refreshing in the summer. The food is top notch and a bit on the pricey side. The bar menu is wonderful and a good place to meet new interesting people.

Reservations are a must. But if you do not have them, the wait is worth it. The menu is varied, but the pasta dishes are superb. The polenta and halibut were excellent as well as the house made sausage with penne pasta. The service is a bit slow but everyone is friendly and accommodating. We have been going to Truckee for many years and this restaurant has been consistently very good.

If you are looking for a fancy stuffy restaurant this is not the place for you. This restaurant is a
Truckee staple with excellent food and service.The Pasta Bolognese is some of the best we have ever had and it comes on house made pasta. The pork medallions are served on some of the worlds best cheesy polenta. We will definitely be back for the food.
