    The ambiance is not fit for a date unless you sit outside, if the weather is right. The food is packed with garlic most of the time. It's a group's hangout not a romantic conversation type place.

    We went there for lunch during Restaurant Week and it was a pleasurable time. The food was prepared and presented perfectly. Our server was a young man who was attentive (but not overly so) and knew the menu. My friend and I had two different menu items and they were both excellent. The ambiance was lovely and subdued. It was a little noisy but there were many people there who were having business lunches so it was understandable. I would definitely recommend Piatti to anyone looking for a terrific lunch experience. Will definitely return there for another pleasurable time.

    While visiting the Piatti located at the Quarry, I must say that it was nothing close to what I expected. I made a reservation online and everything worked out great which was very impressive. After the first impression everything went downward and was completely terrible. The tea I was recommended was disguisting as well as the food, and that really wouldn't even have mattered if we would have had good service. The service was the complete worse, it was an insult, I really wish I would have chosen another restaurant. Although I won't say the chances of me coming back to this restaurant is a complete 0, but it is very slight.

    Our food was excellent. I reserved our table by Internet, simple. I requested a table far away from the bar. We got exactly what we wanted. Our wait person, Roy, was excellent.

    The reserved table I had secured online had "Happy Birthday" stamped on top of each menu at the table and both the server and owner extended good wishes to our birthday guest. The guest had his choice of dessert and, when the generous slice of cake was presented, the server lite a large sparkler on top of the cake as a festive surprise. Food was delicious and the service attentive, friendly but unobtrusive.

    We made a return, annual visit to Piatti's. Each time our group gathers in San Antonio, this is a must do for us. The food is excellent, choices are numerous, and service is impecable. This would be a favorite of ours if we lived in the community, but we eat here each time we are in town.

    I had the ricotta spinach pasta with a lemon cream sauce and it was fantastic. As a fan of freshly rolled pasta at home, I'm almost positive this was made in house. It was just delicious. Friends had me try a chocolate cake they are famous for, but it wasn't very impressive. Just some sort of lava cake with chocolate ganache on it. At an italian restaurant, I should have tried the Limone tart. I'll be back.

    We met some friends for dinner. We made a reservation and that worked out very well. This was a first-time visit for me and my wife. Table bread was a little tough. Guess they didn't want diners eating too much bread. I had the salmon with potatoes and spinach. It was absolutely delicious. The other three were all pleased with their dinners too. I thought the margaritas were a little over-priced which takes some of the fun out of drinking. Our waitperson was very good. He was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and ready to give menu advice when I asked. We will definitely go back again, maybe next time skipping the alcohol.

    Booked through Open Table and had a nice dinner. The food was good and some dishes have the option of getting half orders in case you don't want a big plate. The gnoochi with meatballs was good and the meatballs had a little kick. Just wish they had Peroni beer to go with the Morretti beer for more Italian choices.

    My wife and I had lunch at Piatti on Mother's Day. We had a reservation, and seating was had right away. Service was attentive but not overly so. Food was excellent. My wife had sautéed prawns, an appetizer made an entree by adding pasta. I had cioppino, a rare find in San Antonio. Both were excellent. Our waiter, Roy, admirably abstained from "selling up" with dessert, and we enjoyed splitting a dessert, which was satisfying and just enough for the two of us. Overall, a positive experience.

    We enjoy eating at Piatti's in both locations: the Quarry and at Eilan. The food is delicious and a bit different from standard Italian. The crusty bread is to die for, and I was pleased that they brought us butter for it in addition to the normal olive oil dip. My husband ordered the gnocchi, which he said were terrific, although a bit heavy on salt that night. The mussel appetizer is a meal in itself, and I am seriously thinking of getting 2 orders of it "to go" on another night. Our waitress was attentive and cheerful. We were able to hold a conversation without yelling at each other because although it was busy, the tables are nicely spaced for privacy. All in all, a wonderful restaurant that is becoming one of our favorites!

    I had dinner here with two colleagues and we ate outside. It was very noisy inside so it was a great choice. We had the best server I have had in years. Her name is Olivia. She was great at describing the food, making suggestions, giving us time to talk but making sure we had what we needed. Olivia made this dining experience exceptional. The food was good too. make sure you have the s'mores for dessert. What fun!!

    We stopped here for lunch and were very happy. My son who is vegetarian had many choices - all of them excellent. I had the ceasar salad with salmon -- great salad and enough salmon for lunch another day. My husband, who is very picky about how his fish is cooked, had salmon also and was very impressed. The service was attentive, the wine list interesting, the space welcoming -- and enough space to be able to talk to each other. We will come back.
