  • "Always great food. Simply and fresh tasty dishes. Lovely drink selections a menu item for all tastes!"

  • "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."

  • "We had a very noisy loud large group next to us and were thoughtfully accommodated with a move to a more quiet area by the host. Appreciated."

  • "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."

  • "One of the things I especially liked is that I wanted to modify one of their dinner specials and replace the Petrale Sole with their Salmon. Our waiter didn't hesitate to provide that change and my entrée was exactly as I wanted. Very happy!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "While the lunch was tasty. I was disappointed that my salad came out with dressing when I had ordered it on the side. My guest was polite and waited for my salad to come back out before they began eating their lunch which was a warm dish."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "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 love this restaurant because even though I am only a teenager, they treat me as they do any other customer. I've had some bad experiences with disrespectful waiters at other places, but service here is always great. 5 stars from me"

  • "Never lets us down. The bread and olive oil dip are worth coming back again and again. Always great food and fun flavors. This is by far a favorite."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Met some friends here on Saturday evening who live in Contra Costa. Had a lovely evening with good food and great visit with friends. We were seated in a separate, smaller room away from the main dining room where it was not as noisy as the main dining room. Service was attentive and friendly. We will surely be back again!"

  • "Went to dinner on a Tuesday night and this place was packed at 7pm. Thankfully we had reservations. The food was awesome! It was very loud in there so if you are looking for a quiet romantic place this in not the place for you. Again, the foods was awesome!"

  • "We have eaten at Piatti's many times over the years. The Mary's chicken was always my "go to' favorite. I ordered it again last night and it was just short of being awful. It was a dried out thigh and breast, flat and lifeless on the plate. It used to be 1/2 of a nicely roasted chicken, juicy and slightly golden brown on the outside, this was not even close. The rest of the food was good, but still lacking last night. Better check out what is happening in the kitchen Piatti's, the Danville crowd likes consistency and quality."

  • "If you are looking for real Italian food this is not the place. Look for others if you want true Italian. The room was loud, the food in some of the cases was oily. I had my nieces there which we're looking forward to dinner and they were both disappointed."

  • "We dine at Paitti often and always enjoy the food and patio seating. The chef is remarkable, the wine list extensive however the method used for setting reservations is offensive. We have tried many times to make reservations only to be told the first open table, for two, is not untill 9pm. We usually eat at 530 to 6 but always get the "we have a table at 7 and so you will need to be out by then. This is generally a week in advance, When did this party make their reso??"

  • "We have been to Piatti at least 20 times now and the food is always consistent and taste great. The fresh bread and dipping oil is addicting. Service is generally prompt and friendly, but as with all places some servers are better than others and often we have to ask about the specials. We like the brunch and the lunch best of the meals they serve, but definitely plan to have a reservation, especially on the weekend."
