    Great view over water, not too noisy at lunch but can be very noisy in the evening. There are a few tables outside and that can be delightful. I like how they provide heaters and blankets. The food is good BUT when I announce beforehand that we are celebrating a birthday, I expect the dessert to arrive with a candle. It didn't. If there's no candle for me to blow out, you blew it.

    Piatti never fails to delight us with its friendly, professional staff, eclectic menu, and panoptic views across Richardson Bay and Mt. Tamalpais. lunch Al fresco on Friday featured a delicately flavored gnocchi and a nice thin-crust veggie pizza. Our group birthday function in the large northern room a couple of years ago was a memorable occasion: One of our favorite spots in Marin. We'll definitely be back.

    Great place to unwind especially during happy hour especially when killing time from traffic going Northbound, knowing I don't have to rush home, cook, clean and not enjoy a glass of wine. The food is delicious, we always get the meatball sliders and pepperoni pizzas. Drinks are strong. Good times on the patio overlooking Richardson Bay!

    Enjoyed an early Sunday dinner here with a friend after a Marin Theatre Company production. Seating provided a lovely water view—as requested. Wait staff were attentive, but not intrusive. Decent wines by the glass and my linguine clam dish was simple, but delicious. (My Caesar salad, however, was only so-so. It looked more flavorful than it tasted.) Still, I’ll count this among my post-theater finds and will definitely dine here again.

    Had a group birthday dinner here on Sunday night. The restaurant was nice about accommodating last minute that our group went from 8-12 and let us show up an hour early to set the table and were very accommodating overall. Our waitress was friendly and it was a great experience for everyone. Good food and pretty view.

    Made a dinner reservation through Open Table. Requested a table with a view as we were celebrating my husband's birthday. We were seated promptly and the view was spectacular. My husband started with a perfect vodka martini on the rocks. Warm bread was served with a delicious olive oil balsamic dipping sauce. Food was wonderful, service was attentive, desert was served with a candle and was on the house...... All in all, a YumYum evening......

    Good food, great service. We needed a last minute place to check out after an early party where there wasn't enough food. Waiter was great, menu looked good. We had the meatballs which my wife loved but I thought were a bit boring. I had a caesar salad which was also ok (it had some almost kale-like lettuce which threw me off but enjoyed). The part I did not like but ended up finishing anyway was the bolognese, which was much too salty and a bit dry.

    Arrived an hour early for our reservation. Host graciously fitted us (2) in immediately. Food was varied and good and the waiter assisted us in sharing plates. It was sunset and a beautiful view overlooking the bay and seeing Mt. Tamalpais. However by 7:00PM the noise was almost unbearable. We were in the middle of the restaurant which was probably the loudest. Ricky

    We were a party of 8 and I had asked specifically that the table be relatively quiet because of several elderly people who were hard of hearing. Our evening was a disaster since we were set up at a table near the bar. Unbelievable! We asked to be moved and were told we couldn't be as the other tables were reserved. This in spite of the fact the restaurant was empty when we arrived. Horrible! An important event for us, spoiled because half the people couldn't hear.Build a wall between your bar and dining room. The food was very good.

    Great location, water view, would be perfect but for wait staff that doesn't know the menu and doesn't listen, and for a kitchen that slaps food together. Steak in steak salad ordered medium and came rare; when asked to fix, meat came back charred like shoe leather; it wasn't made right in any way. But the view and company were delightful, so...maybe...who cares about the food and service?

    We've had 3 decent dining experiences at Piatti's until our most recent visit. Unfortunately, this 4th time we dined there, & none of our orders were to our liking and we had brought a guest from out of town! Our guest's Kobe steak was quite tough, after ordering it med rare. The steak dish was strongly suggested by our waiter for our guest to order from the menu. My husband's salmon was overwhelmed by the more then generous sauteed carrots, which covered 2/3rds of the plate. My pork chop I couldn't eat since it was smoothered with lemon sauce & capers, which dried it out. We left very dissapointed & apologized to our guest for the not so good dining experience. I doubt we'll be back.

    The food and service were terrific but we sat in a place where the windows were insuffifiently covered for the sun problem and it made it challenging to have the sun in our eyes (we ended up wearing our sun glasses) for an evening meal. There are many ways to rectify the problem but we won't sit in that room next time.
