Piatti - La Jolla
I love PiattiI love Piatti restaurant. One of the best in San Diego6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great gathering placeThe food is always good, fresh Italian. The service is attentive and engaging. The location is perfect. The price is right.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FoodMy husband and son loved the sweetbreads, which are difficult to find. My caesar salad had just the right amount of garlic, which I love. The outdoor seating was picturesque and warm, lovely. We especially love the personal touch on the menu. Special menus were made with a title wishing my son a happy birthday.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI visit this spot, which isI visit this spot, which is away from the touristy part of La Jolla, at least once a year when I visit town. Consistently great service and quality food. Wine/cocktail selection is great too. Always accommodating, the staff makes the evening wonderful.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian PerfectionWe always plan to eat at Piatti's every time we make a trip to La Jolla; It's a special neighborhood gem! The dipping oil is superb with the crusty Italian bread. Their Caesar salads are fresh and chilled. The gemelli pasta with sausage, mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes was delicious; My husband had pasta with lamb in a rich tomato sauce that was also excellent! Portions are generous, so come hungry!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing little gemThe food was excellent. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the service was spot on. My only complaint is that they no longer serve lamb everyday. They only serve lamb on Thursday.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlwaysa greatmeal!I have yet to have a bad meal at Piatti's. We live out of state but travel to the Shores often and always eat at Piatti's when we do! Great restaurant! Great food great atmosphere and nice people!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAll Hail PiattiLoved it, top to bottom. I've eaten here on multiple occasions and will be back for sure. Friendly staff, great ambience, excellent food and reasonable prices. What's not to love?5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful!Enjoyed this little restaurant for quiet dinner. Great ambiance and service. Would definitely come back.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian in La JollaGreat food and nice atmosphere but without the hassles of dealing with downtown La Jolla.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAn absolute favoriteWe have been to the restaurant 10 or 12 times over the years. Birthdays, anniversaries, dates,etc. Always a wonderful experience. My wife and I were there on Sunday, the 19t. Great braised veal and risotto specials. Now my 20-something daughters have been going on their own for the same reasons. In fact, one in going tonight with her husband for their 2nd wedding anniversary5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPatio is great - food pretty goodThe patio is really attractive. A large central tree covers virtually all of the patio. In the past the food has been great. This time it was not bad but unremarkable. The service was really good. Every time I have been here except once a table has been ready at my reservation time. The quality of the food has generally been above average in the many times I have been here. This time I had grilled salmon which is pretty much the same everywhere. So, the less than enthusiastic comment about the food is not really characteristic of the place.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great evening!The food was great as always, and our server was very pleasant. I love dining on the patio. Must stop here if you are in La Jolla.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat outdoor diningPiatti's has added outdoor (in front of their restaurant). We would typically sit either inside or on their side patio seating but this front seating was so nice. Nice addition to an already wonderful restaurant!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood overall and a good placeGood overall and a good place to start if you are staying in the la jolla area. We have another Italian restaurant in la Mesa that we prefer for food and the ambience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMfood makersGreat commications start to finish. Very well run resturant . service eceptional. great food.....too5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen coming here for nearlyBeen coming here for nearly a decade and I have never been disappointed.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place 2 Eat!I went for lunch with my supervisor and some coworkers. We totally enjoyed the food. Great loemon sauce and grilled romaine hearts. Homemade pasta with shrimp was great! I will be back!!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great restaurant.This is a great restaurant. I always have dinner here when I travel from the East Coast.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing relaxing neighborhood gemI loved the relaxed and familial feel of this place. Even though it was packed on a Thursday night (good sign!), the staff and decor made our group of 7 feel as if we were enjoying a leisurely meal almost at a friend's home. The bread and dip was so tasty and the appetizers so well-proportioned that I ended up ordering a half-sized pasta dish as my main meal -- and I still left stuffed. Our team has been out to a number of La Jolla's best restaurants (George at the Cove, Eddie V's, etc.) but I actually enjoyed dinner at Piatti's the most due to its neighborhood ambiance and tasty food. Definitely recommend.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMlove the neighborhood surroundinglove the neighborhood surrounding Piatti; social, scenic, charming; food always good; busy at lunch even on Monday but
that was GOOD; added to the charm
Salmon Salad is my friend's favorite there; for me, Veal Piccata always a hit!!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!I reserved a table online and received a call about 6 hours before the reservation time to confirm that the reservation was correct. The man on the phone was very kind and even asked if there was a special occasion. I told him that it was a friend's birthday and he asked for a name in order to put "Happy Birthday [insert name here]" on all of the menus for the table (the birthday girl LOVED it). Not only that, but he also asked if we had plans afterwards so that we can be served in a timely manner in order to be on time with OUR schedule. As soon as we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated quickly and our orders were taken as soon as we were ready. Delicious food! Great service! Very nice setting. Would recommend this place to a friend.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic DiningThis is my third time at dining at Piatti. I've loved it every time. Beautiful setting and the wait staff is awesome, extremely helpful and attentive. The food is excellent!

Great customer service.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendedWe went here due to a recommendation from a former resident of area who is fried. The service was top notch, the house Red by the glass was really something special. Dinner was amazing, was torn between a couple of items and our server asked me a couple of question about what I as really in the mood for and helped me pick something I doubt I would have otherwise.
Penne paste and lamb! WOW it was simply amazing! The lamb was almost like stew that had been cooked for hours, just the right amount of everything, the red wine reduction was perfect. My partner had the veal picatta and was very very happy. Everyone around us was having a great time, we all sang Happy Birthday with gusto to one customer! Parking is an issue but it's the beach!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here was fantastic!The food here was fantastic!

They always honor our request for a particular seating area. Piatti is in our regular rotation. The bread is addictive and the gelato is a perfect follow up to a great meal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMalways great.Not our first time here but everything was as good as before.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a Romantic CelebrationMy husband and I decided to try this place to celebrate his birthday. When I made the reservation on OpenTable, I left a note in the "Special Request" section indicating that it was his birthday. The whole experience was terrific. When I called to push the reservation back half an hour, they didn't blink an eye or show any annoyance. When we arrived, they gave us special menus that said "Happy Birthday" on them, they had an attentive waitstaff, and the food and wine were great. For dessert, they brought out a DELICIOUS and complementary piece of tiramisu with a candle on it. It seemed like inside the restaurant might get a bit loud and is more brightly lit than we wanted, but the outdoor patio is very romantic and charming.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial BirthdayOur server, Jessica, provided us with personal and friendly service (making my wife's birthday very special). The food was brought nice and hot and was delightfully tasty.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat all around experienceThe ambiance and service are always top notch at Piatti's.
