    I prefer the soup/salad/bread with olive oil route. We went for a birthday dinner and the entree (pasta) was overwhelming for one meal (took some home), and there wasn't enough variety. I would have preferred half the entree and a green salad or cup of soup instead of just the bread and the entree.

    Piatti's in University Village has always been one of my favorites for my daughter and I to frequent. Since we are both gluten intolerant, we know we can have many great food choices. The other night we were eating outside with one of my daughter's best friends ~ the food was delicious ~ the service was outstanding ~ and when our waiter found out it was a "reunion" he surprised us with a yummy dessert. Try the gluten free pasta with homemade sausage ~ the flavor is fabulous. Love this place!

    Overall, dining here was pleasant. Service was very friendly and mostly prompt. Receiving our drinks after our first order was slow, but the custom drink we ordered was very good (first time the bartender had made it!). Food was just above average. The most negative comment is that the pasta (w/ the chicken picatta) was overcooked - which is a no-no for an Italian restaurant. Pizza was very good. The rest of the meals were fine. We would give it a try again.

    I had a reservation initially for 15, but these guys accommodated our swollen group of 22 people. They close at 9 in sundays, however no one ever told us or nudged that we had to leave as we lingered until 10 - that to me is exceptional hosting! Very polite and cheerful host - thank you so much. Food was just great, and one should definitely try their tiramisu!

    Reception was organized and gracious. Table was ready on arrival. Special request to have a table out of the way was honored very nicely, so we could talk freely. Service was efficient. Food was very satisfying. What's not to like? Nothing -- except the parking in U-Village is crazy while the parking structures are under construction. Suggest you bite the bullet and just go to the garage in the SW corner.

    A late lunch mid-week with a friend. Sunshine on the patio. Wow, the only things that could make it even better are a couple of cucumber coolers and a Burrata. What's "Burrata", you say? Better hurry right down there and try it! Never tasted anything like it. Too much for one person for a starter, we thought, so we were glad we split it. We were both happy with our entree -- the gnocchi and the asparagus ravioli. I'm sure I'm going to go back and get another Burrata before it goes away for the season!

    The service and food never disappoint in a casual ambience with a touch of elegance. The space is works well for a group or a date and the noise level is not uncomfortably quiet and still allows for easy conversation. The price range is reasonable for the quality of service, presentation, and dinner. You always know that you and your guests will be treated well and that the experience will be pleasant and nice.

    We're always looking for new restaurants in the north end of Seattle . . . Piatti is a nice find, with great food and an appealing atmosphere. Some restaurants crowd their tables together, making conversation difficult, but spacing at Piatti was more than ample. And then there was the final nice touch . . . it was our 34th wedding anniversary, and the server gave us the dessert on the house!

    Outstanding dining experience! Our party of 7 was celebrating our son's graduation from college. The graduate's grandmother had a delayed flight an arrived at the restaurant nearly an hour after the rest of our party. Our waiter, Nicoholas was incredibly accomodating and suggested our family relax and enjoy drinks and starters in the outside dining area while awaiting grandmother's arrival. Although we tied up a table for 7 for 3 hours, we never felt rushed. Delicious food, wonderful service. Everyone enjoyed the evening. We will definitely return.

    We have gone to Piatti on numerous occasions over the past several years and are generally pleased with the quality of the food and the service. Over the past year we have noticed a decline in both the service and the food. The $26 halibut entree was salty to the point of being inedible. The garnish with it was lovely. The tomato sauce has become bland and overly sweet to the point of tasting as though it came out of a can. We've always thought of Piatti as our go-to place, but for the price, there are far better options in the area.

    Piatti is a typical chain Italian Restaurant. Good, but not great. The service here was very good and staff was friendly. We were seated in a room with a fireplace, which was very nice as it was a cool, rainy night. The table next to us were celebrating a birthday and were quite loud. That didn't really bother us and the overall ambience was good. The menu items were not traditional Italian, but more Modern Italian.We started by splitting the Romaine Wedge Salad, which was very good. My husband enjoyed his Chicken and pasta dish. I ordered the halibut, which had great possibilities, but was overcooked and drenched in too much butter/oil/sauce. The wine selection was not huge, but there were some nice choices.

    I hadn't been to this restaurant in years, so I decided to stop in when I was in U Village. The ambience is nice, the noise level is fine, it's a pleasing place to be. But the food and service were disappointing. We were charged for something we didn't order, the waitress vanished toward the end of the meal, which left us sitting there about 30 minutes longer than we wanted to, and the food was bland and uninspired. Sadly, I won't be going back.

    Piatti is a dining spot we consistently return to. Service is always top notch, "extras" like the bread and great dipping sauce are things we always enjoy. A highlight of our most recent visit was particularly attentive and friendly service from Devin. He took good care of us and made us feel welcome while taking care of multiple tables on a busy night during Seattle Restaurant Week. The only disappointment of the evening was my beet salad. The "golden" beets were a disconcerting shade of gray, and the "micro" greens were indeed tiny and sparse. The rigatoni with a fantastic lamb sausage more than compensated. We're planning to come back on a Monday night when, as Devin pointed out, bottles of wine are 50% off.

    I came here with a friend to imbibe in a couple glasses of wine and their seattle restaurant week. Their duck prosciutto salad was good...perfectly dressed and garnished. The lamb was really good, but I felt the vegetables that went with it was a touch too acid and a hair overdone. That's being nitpicky though. The panacotta was amazing...and the flourless chocolate cake was good, but a little on the dense side. Our servers was great and prompt so overall good experience.

    I could tell my lady needed a special night out, so I researched various restaurants participating in restaurant week. Her favorite is Italian, and I chose Piatti. The thoughtful hostess went the extra-mile to accommodate my seating request submitted via OpenTable. Danielle, our waitress, was delightful and she helped add to an overall excellent experience. I'm no foodie, but the 3-course meal we each had was spectacular, and I HIGHLY recommend Piatti if you're in the mood for Italian and/or you want to treat your lady/man well on a weekday (or any other day!)
