    We made our reservations, they called to confirm 24 hours before we arrived. Upon arrival they had an excellent table already set with menus ready. Our server was very attentive for our party of six. The mother's day brunch menu was excellent. The seared pork belly with polenta is highly recommended.

    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.

    My son came to town for Easter and we had to come up with a place to have Easter Brunch as he was leaving that afternoon. Went to open Table and found Piatti's. I could have been more pleased. It was a wonder place to have brunch. Food was great, service was great, just as nice relaxing place to eat.

    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!)

    I have gone to Piatti often. Their food is wonderful and the service top notch. I was there last month with a group of ten for lunch. Separate checks were given cheerfully and each meal was very good. This past Wednesday we went to dinner for my birthday. Each meal was highly praised and again the service was excellent the Panna Cotta is perfection for dessert. I highly recommend Piatti.

    I recently had lunch at Piatti with a friend at his suggestion. We couldn't have been happier with the selection. Great food! I had a salmon sandwich that was excellent and paired it with a wine that was perfect. Our waitress was very polite, professional and punctual. Atmosphere was pleasant, and a nice break from a very busy and frenetic day at University Village. I will recommend Piatti to friends.

My last visit was on my birthday with my sister and brother for brunch...it was perfect...they both agreed...and I love the artwork on the wall. Also...the waitress was a hit. This is just my idea of a great little place to eat,relax and enjoy the time with myself or others...there is not loud music or conversation...it is a keeper and I will always return.. Thanks for a well run ..well appreciated restaurant

    My two sisters and I went to Piatti!s for a birthday lunch. Our server was fantastic. He was friendly and always had a smile. We all ordered the Salmon with olive tapenade with cole slaw sandwich with field greens. We all thought the salad colorful but very bland tasting. Afterwards we thought we should of asked for some oil & vinegar dressing to spice it up. The salmon was good, I personally wished there was more coleslaw on it. We loved the place, the server, but thought for the money thee food was just okay. We hoped there was more chocolate desserts, although knowing this is a Italian restaurant. we left without sharing one. It was for a birthday celebration. I would come again and try something else.

    Our party of 11 made reservations at Piatti "blind" and had an immensely enjoyable experience. They accomodated our extended family's every need, which isn't easy! We ranged in age from 6 to 72; four of us have significant allergies/dietary restrictions; and our usual dining preferences range from Denny's to Foodies. Some had breakfast, others had lunch and we all raved about our food. Menu was creative without being pretentious. Per our request, we were seated in a quiet corner, near a fireplace, and the acoustics made it easy for all of us to hear one another at a long table. It wasn't busy when we arrived, and hadn't filled up when we left, but I didn't notice an increase in decibels as more parties were seated. We will return!

    Took my daughter her for dinner. We order a starter and entrees. Imagine our surprise when they both came out together!! So now we either eat fast or pick which one gets cold. The food was not delivered by our server (we actually didn't see him much) so when I did see him I mentioned that it would have been nice if the starter came out before the main. He was very surprised and promptly sent the manager over. I was really not looking for a freebie but just wanted to let him know it had happened. The manager immediately offered us a free dessert. We decided to take her up on that and got the cheesecake to share. I don't normally like cheesecake, but this stuff was awesome!! All in all a nice meal.

    Friday night was busy as expected but even though the noise level was "energetic" we felt relaxed and comfortable once we were seated at our table. Our server was very good - attentive, prompt and courteous. In the all the times we've dined here the quality of the food has been consistent (in a good way!). From the salads to the entrees to dessert we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    When we first walked in (5:30 reservation, hardly anyone in the restaurant) the hostess wanted to put us WAY in the back corner -- I mean the farthest back corner there was. A little too secluded, so we asked to be seated in the lower 48, with the rest of the dining world! My dinner was very tasty: the chicken penne pasta was delicious with just the right amount of hot spice. The pear salad was different; a refreshing alternative to a traditional green salad, but it was unfortunately, a little bland. Not very sweet. And a little pricey for what it was ($10-11 for a half pear w/ cheese, with a couple of thin slices of beets? greens?). Oh well, the pasta was very good and the service was fine. I'll be back for a 2nd look see!
