    Love a laid back Sunday Brunch? Piatti is the place for you. Excellent food and atmosphere mixed with the casual cool style that Piatti offers makes for a perfect way to start your Sunday. I highly recommend grabbing a seat on the patio.

    Although we had reservations, we had a long, long wait. To apologize, they comp'd an appetizer to our table almost immediately. Very cool. Because it was too late in the evening for us to eat a full entree, we ended up ordering another appetizer and pizza, both of which were very good. The service staff were attentive and friendly. We would go back and hopefully get an earlier reservation, so we can order up.

    Initially, the noise level was too high but once we were reseated, it was better. The food was fresh & served quickly. The service was the best because the bartender and manager attended to my food allergies by modifying an item which ended up being safe to eat. The bathroom needed attention but all in all, it's a nice place.

    Very nice atmosphere and a very good brunch menu. The food was not quite as good as expected, but certainly not bad. The crab cake benedict was good, but the crab was not a pronounced as one might like and the eggs were slightly over done with only a small amount of wet yoke. The prosciutto omelette was also good, but its contents were uneven such that one portion was mostly tomatoes, then prosciutto and a little overly salty. Again, good, but not outstanding. We will try it again to see for consistency. Total bill for 2 with soft drinks (coffee, iced tea) and tip was $50.

    The food was average. I had a small Caesar salad that I swear must not of had any Caesar dressing on it. And when I say small -- I mean small. The wood fired pizza was decent but again nothing special. Matter of fact the fennel sausage was fairly tasteless. Kudos for the dipping sauce for the bread. Service was marginal.

    Good food. Great service. Tables too close together. Extremely noisy. We wanted a quiet romantic dinner, but instead it was chaotic and loud. Good place for very casual dining, and watching a game on a TV. Not a good choice if you want an intimate upscale dining experience.

    The check was 117 for two people with only one glass of wine, an appetizer and two entrees. I would expect to pay that (actually probably more) at a mortons or ruth Chris type place but here my steak was undercooked and our appetizer, the ahi tuna was so peppered it was hard to eat. My boyfriend enjoyed his sole however. Its a nice restaurant but way over priced for their mediocre quality of food

The staff completely accommodated my request. The service and food were outstanding. I can't wait to go back.

    Piatti may be a chain but they never act like one. I asked for a birthday menu, a gluten free menu, and the patio, all graciously provided without a hitch. They always have fresh in- season local produce, beautiful fresh fish, and homemade pasta. There menu has enough variety to please everyone. They are patient with families with children. It is our go to place for a lovely meal in Danville when we have more then the two of us and varied tastes.

    We were warmly welcomed, service was outstanding, they honored our request for a window table and the food was perfect. It was our granddaughter's 7th birthday and they included her name on the top of the menu, gave her the ingredients to make her own pizza, brought her a complimentary dessert and our waiter, Terrence, was gracious and friendly with us and her. It was the perfect birthday evening for her and for us to share with her. She even had her first 'Shirley Temple' :-) I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant. We have never been disappointed at Piatti's!

    I had reservations for 4:45 for dinner (and no, I'm not in the senior citizen crowd!) and we were seated promptly. My husband and I both ordered pasta dishes. He had a special with home made sausage and mushrooms. It was very filling. Mine was fettuccine with heirloom tomatoes and pancetta. Didn't find much pancetta in there but the dish was tasty. We finished with a scoop of gelato for me and apple crisp for hubby. They were both tasty, the apple crisp has a great topping on it too! The only thing that detracted from a great experience was seeing the Justin Beiber look alike host shotgunning a Monster energy drink. Not professional at all.

    Piatti's has been a good choice whenever I have been there. The noise level used to be high, but was okay. Perhaps it is the rearrangement of seating since I was there before. It may be loud during the bar scene. The service was a little inattentive. The coffee refill was late plus lukewarm. The food was good. I chose Piatti's as the place to go with a friend I had not seen for years. We could hear each other, enjoy a good meal and stay talking after we finished eating.
