    I chose Piatti's because the parking is easy and the food is good. Had a great time, the wait staff noticed the music was loud in our corner and turned it down without any prompting. Food was delivered promptly and the server was attentive. Pizza a little salty but my mom enjoyed it anyway! Highly recommend.

    Dined on 1/26/2014
    I was planning a surprise birthday brunch for a friend, not realizing that finding a brunch location....on a Sunday....for 20 people....would be so difficult. That's when I found Piatti! They had no problem accommodating such a large group. The food was delicious and the place was relatively empty until around noon. The only thing that was kind of lacking was the service. We were there for about 2 hours and there were some incredibly large lapses in service where we were just waiting for new drinks or to get the tab at the end. I would for sure recommend this spot to just about anyone and I'm sure the service was mostly because of the length of time we were there and the large-ness of our group.

    Always have a great meal, the service is excellent. Surprising for a restaurant in a shopping mall, but it's very conveniently located so we eat there fairly often. The one downside is the abysmal parking at Uvillage. Even with the parking garage, when you just want to zip in for dinner and out for an event, it's a frustrating situation.

    I asked for a quiet table if available and the hostess seated us in the corner and it was great for conversation and privacy. We enjoyed being able to visit with old friends that we hadn't seen for some time. The butter squash ravioli was outstanding, the waitress helpful and patient with the four of us arriving at different times. I recommend the food, the atmosphere and the staff. Nice wine list and several fillings of coffee made for a relaxed and enjoyable lunch.

    Good food.. Not quite as exceptional as last time but everyone enjoyed their meals (mostly pasta dishes) This place is comfortable and prices are reasonable. Avoid the almond joy cheese cake. It does not resemble cheese cake. It was more like a serving of coconut flavored frosting. They always strive to accommodate. Service was exceptional. They were continuously friendly though we stayed for a long while catching up with old friends.

    This isn't high-end fine dining, but they were pretty creative with their menu. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. We had some people in our party who are vegans and they had a number of options for them. I had the wild salmon and it was cooked perfectly. (I greatly appreciated having wild salmon, and not farm raised salmon!). A friend had their poached egg salad which was a different take on a salad, but she thought it was excellent. One person had their butternut squash ravioli and said it was excellent. Service was excellent. We appreciated their patience with us because we had two people in our party who ended up not showing up at the last minute.

    After waiting 15 minutes for our Martini & wine, the waiter came by to see if we were ready to order. Seems he should come over to tell us what the delay was. When food came he also came by to see if or how we liked it. I gave him the pepper grinder as it was empty. It was a nice meal but not outstanding for an Anniversary dinner.

    Food was generally excellent which was quite unexpected for what is essentially a mall restaurant. Salads were perfectly dressed. Calamari was much more interesting than usual with fried sweet onions along with the squid. Mussels were outstanding: fresh, succulent, delectable broth and it was a big portion for an app. Pasta portions (both half and full) were huge, hearty and satisfying. Service was also excellent: host, server and support staff were all very professional but also friendly and their smiles and the care with which they treated us made us feel like much appreciated patrons. We had a wonderful first impression, a pleasant dining experience and a lasting, positive impression out the door.

    Piatti was a wonderful choice for Christmas Eve dinner. I loved my beef tenderloin with gorgansola butter served over a bed of mushroom risotta. A taste sensation. My husband had the pork ricotta meatballs and pasta with tomato sauce. it was perfect ambiance, lively--good energy to celebrate Christmas Eve.

    Very gracious hostesses seated us early to wait for our guests. Wait staff brought wine tastes to help us select since they were out of our first wine pic. They accommodated a special request for carbonara. The rest of the food was quite good and the panna cotta was excellent. Unfortunately noise is an issue.. heard the entire dating history of the table next to us. However, in total, after what seemed like a slump over the last year or so …we enjoyed very nice evening at Piatti.

    For my kids to say the food wasn't good is bad. Pizza was "slimy", alfredo not very good, my salmon was so oily I couldn't eat it-they did bring me something else to eat, however. The one thing we all said was great was the salted carmel gelato. Service waitress was very nice and thoughtful with our 7 kids at a second table not offering them things without getting our permission first.

    My friend and I ate at Piatti's a few nights ago. I ordered one of the specials, a sweet potato gnocchi that was quite good. My friend ordered a pizza and while the flavors were good it was a little undercooked. The crust could have used a longer cooking time. Service is good. Nice big wine list. They have a daily specials list that includes not only food but drinks and wines.

My hubby had lamb sausage pasta dish, which he said was good. So, all in all-- good. Not the best meal we have ever had just average. The service was super slow and not great.
