    Food much too oily. Salmon was a small portion and overcooked. Salads were nothing special. Desserts were the only bright spots in the meals. Servers were pleasant.

    We are very familiar with the Piatti operation, i.e. La Jolla, Danville, Sacramento. It is always up to the challenge. We love Italian food and wine so this is a natural for us. The visit was on my wife, Nancy's birthday. The "dedicated" menu headed by, Happy Birthday Nancy, was a very nice touch.

    Service: (5 stars) - The bartender (liz) was a joy and made great drinks. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The general manager was very nice (he knew we were in talks to book our rehearsal dinner there and made a point to make us feel welcome). Food (4 stars): We had a cheese plate the manager comped which was very good with some local goat and blue cheese, homemade burratta and fresh flat bread from the pizza oven. The "20 minute" Chicken w/ Shaved brussel sprouts and bacon (5stars) the star of the night. Crispy and juicy. I had the Wild Salmon. Cooked perfectly medium rare with a crispy skin that added a great texture, and accompanied by cor, chorizo, mushrooms and green beans (5 stars for meat/ 3 for the corn succotash)

    Piatti's turned out to be the PERFECT place to celebrate a landmark birthday with a group of friends and neighbors. Great job, Piatti. It was perfect in every way. The ambiance, service and food were all perfect. One of our guests, a real foodie, was telling me last night that he couldn't get the sauce for one of his dishes out of his mind--it was so fresh and light and flavorful. I had the minestrone. It was probably the best I'd ever had--not too heavy, fresh and perfect.

    The waiter had a great personality, and the food was good - especially the appetizers. But the waiter was responsible for too many tables. So service was very slow - 2 1/2 hours from coming in to leaving. We would have ordered dessert, but ultimately had to go. If you have the time, though, it's worth the visit. Very nice staff and very pleasant dining experience.

    We expected a great evening out to see one of our favorite jazz-blues-scat song stylists and outstanding accompanying musicians. Happily, we weren't disappointed! Host and service staff were intelligent and friendly; the food was tasty and well-presented (as was the wine). Hat's-off to Piatti's for such a lovely, welcoming venue. Extra-added performances by very talented young people, the legendary Delta breeze, the dancing, and the great folks we just met then joined at the next table--all contributed to the ambiance and our enjoyment far beyond what we anticipated of a casual Friday night out. Stay the course, Piatti's, and keep the great jazz coming!

    This place is consistently good, I have never had a bad meal here. The service is excellent and the staff is very helpful. I will admit that I was a bit disappointed this trip because they were out of two of the items we really had our hearts set on, but I also realize that when you use fresh ingredients that can happen.

    Service well-timed, wine list affordable, friendly staff. The salads were great, we all got different dishes and all loved what we got. Were happy that we could choose smaller portions with smaller prices. Our only negative would be the chairs were a bit hard for sitting any length of time, there were booths but none available as there were less of those than regular tables. But we would happily go again.

    Always enjoy dining here, but much more so before the redesign which doesn't generate the warmth of the old layout. More Bahouse than Italin House. As for the food, me and my mate and guests enjoyed the food, especially the t-bone pork chop and the pork pappaderelle. The service was attentive and smart. Appreciate the nice tough of a small cake for my birthday boy guest, too.

    The restaurant has a wood fired pizza oven. There is a chalk board in back of the bar with a wine list. They have Music on Friday nights on the Patio. I began with a meatball appetizer. They were large, they had a mild flavor and they were covered with a mozzarella and served in a high sided dish with red sauce. The cocktail was "A Perfect Storm." The minestrone had a tomato base with pepper flakes and green beans, and no pasta or beans, The clams had lots of garlic and pepper flakes and kernels of corn in a light white sauce with tagliatelle pasta.

    Great food, and service was good up until dessert was served. The waitress let the dessert sit for a good ten minutes and the ice cream melted. It was only when the manager saw us eyeing our dish from the open kitchen that the food got out. Also, the people who were next to us were extremely loud and obnoxious. I understand that the resturaunt cannot help this ,but on a slow Sunday they sont have to provide such close seating.

    I recently had dinner with another couple for my wife's birthday. Sometimes we can be picky about our food and did not have great expectations since we have not eaten here for several years. To our surprise we had one of the best Italian meals that we ever had. The restaurant was not very crowded for a Saturday but had a comfortable ambience and was not very noisy so you could hear the person across from you. The fresh heirloom tomato salad and carpaccio was fresh and tasty. Our pasta was perfectly cooked and had outstanding flavors that went well with their homemade bread that was crunchy on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside. I would definitely return again and would recommend this restaurant to my foodie friends.

    The restaurant is farm to fork, so the menu changes seasonally to reflect availability. The wait staff wa constantly checking up on us and seeing all our needs were met. The dipping oil for the bread was rich with spices. The appetizer cheese plate was so good! The Margherita Pizza had a light tomato sauce and the crust was crispy, yet soft where it should be; only advice would be to provide a bit more basil. The Pappardelle and while Bolognese sauce was good; I would have liked heavy cream for a smoother, richer taste, but it was solid. The ambience is a big, open place, sparse artwork, music playing masks outdoor traffic perfectly. There is a pretty outdoor patio with water alongside it and twinkle lights for nighttime! Love it here!

    We have been to Piatti's a few times and it is a wonderful restaurant. Moving here from New Orleans has been difficult and I try not to be a food snob, but Piatti's is really one of the nicest culinary experiences in Sacramento. I had the heirloom tomato, mozzarella, and basil salad - it was large and could have been a meal in itself. The pork chop was prepared well and moist. My wife's salmon was excellently prepared and seasoned. Great dining experience and the wait staff were attentive and helpful. Nice evening meal.

    The remodel was a bit of a disappointment. Considering all of the amazing restaurant interiors in the Sacramento restaurant scene these days, the buzz about Piatti's remodel had my expectations on a higher tier. Although their efforts fell short there, the food was excellent and the service was great.

    The food quality was inconsistent Tuesday night - not nearly as good as on previous visits. The bartender did not follow the recipe for the drinks and produced four very sour cocktails, and pea shoots served with the vegetables were so fibrous as to be inedible. Pork chops, veal, and pasta were excellent. Saving graces! When food/drink issues were noted to the waiter, he explained to us that WE must be wrong ("Italian 150's are SUPPOSED to be sour" and "pea shoots are just like that". Not an acceptable approach for wait staff! And, the waiter was "mentoring" a new waitress that night. I hope she did not learn his approach. I have liked Piatti a lot in the recent past, but I will wait a while before returning.
