  • Basic Italian - nothing special

    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

    I called ahead to request a booth for just two people. I felt bad taking up a booth for only two people, however my partner is severely hearing impaired and has a difficult time hearing a conversation if not in a booth. 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.

    Well I have been very vocal about the decline and then sporadic improvement in food taste, service, and management however, I will say our experience this time was significantly improved. My food was seasoned and tasty, our waiter very friendly and attentive, and really enjoyed our dinner with friends.

    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.

    We only go to Piatti a couple of times a year but every time we do its is excellent. Even the simplest thing like the roasted chicken is well prepared and quite delicious. I had the pork chop this time and was very happy with flavor, tenderness and temperature. It was perfectly cooked to medium and very juicy. We will definitely keep coming back.

    Made reservations here to celebrate my wife's birthday. Upon arrival, the table we initially had reserved was given away, but we weren't being too demanding and was seated promptly. They had made a specialized menu that had a "happy birthday" wish for my wife at the top. The food was great! It began with warm bread and a vinegar and oil dip. The appetizers were tasteful. Recommend trying the prawns. The main courses were 50/50. The pork chop was flavored great. However, the fettuccine was a little bland and lacked protein. The desserts were on the mark. Overall, the experience was pleasant. Either the owner or manager gave us a complimentary crab cake appetizer and a dessert for it being our first visit. I would dine here again.

    Have enjoyed Piatti many times and always re-impressed each visit. The menu is fresh and creative, the service attentive and it's a pleasure for a casual quick lunch, or a special occasion dinner. They offer health aware options so everyone in your party can enjoy, and it's indulgent no matter what you choose.

    We love this restaurant! Everything we've ordered is great! We took some friends and they agreed the chopped salad was the best salad ever (who raves about salad?)The filet mignon is always perfect and full of flavor, as is the baked chicken (again who raves about chicken?) . I have to eat gluten free and sugar free and they are very careful. They are happy to move side dishes around, etc. Great service!

    Decided to have a meal out during the weekday in the Tri-Valley on a hot evening. Piatti of Danville was our first choice. They were quite packed for a Tuesday night, but fortunately I made reservations through OpenTable and got the time slot that we wanted. The atmosphere was buzzing with patrons enjoying their company and the summer food selections, And the wines and spirits did help in toning down the crowd after a hard day.

    We keep coming back because Piatti Danville has it all: pleasant surroundings, consistently excellent food (plus a gluten free menu) and always the best in service. They actually go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable evening. The only negative is that it gets pretty noisy inside the restaurant, so dine outside in the summer and eat earlier when nit's too cold to be outside.

    Have not dined here in six months due to disappointing experiences. Again, food was bland in flavor. No one had high compliments about anything. I had risotto that came out like oatmeal swimming in some liquid. It was quickly replaced with a tasteless but drier version. Probably a good place to go for cocktails and starters.

    Piatti is a restaurant that offers great food in a lovely atmosphere. The wait staff are on their game and management is ever present supporting the staff. I enjoy the outdoor dining. It feels like you are at home in your own backyard relaxing and eating fine food. Also, if you have kids the create your own pizza comes to the table and your child gets to prepare it for the oven with the sauce, cheese and toppings!

    I bet that his chain Italian restaurant does not have a authentic Italian cook in the kitchen. With those prices, they can afford to hire at least one experienced Italian cook. The quality of food is going down here while the prices are going up. Stay hungry my friends and look for better Italian food joints!

    I mostly make the trek to Danville for Piatti on special occasions (they will print special greetings on your copies of the menu), but sometimes a warm summer night is special occasion enough! Cocktails and wine are very good, and the bread is to live for! Crusty outside, with a perfect balsamic and spice-infused dipping oil that takes pure determination to stop eating. Most salads on the menu are a good bet; they are substantial with a flair for dramatic. We love the Bolognese, Spicy Prawn Chitarra, Risotto... and they offer pastas and salads in two sizes to suit varying appetites and sharing dishes. Piatti has a very pleasant, upbeat ambiance, at once romantic and boisterous. It's a classy, warm place to have a GREAT MEAL! Do it!
