    Small menu that changes, however, the chef will prepare your special request if possible. Mine is their eggplant parmigiana.

    By far Piattini is our favorite restaurant. When you come here you feel like you are totally welcomed and at home. Service is great and the Chef even better. The best pork chops and seafood on South Florida. We consider ourselves foodies and this restaurant is at the top of the list. We have brought lots of friends here and everyone had loved their dish. Hats our to Lilo the best chef ever!

    The menu was nice and varied with a few twists compared to the standard Italian restaurant. The service was slow and the restaurant was only half full on the Wednesday night that we went. In season, this place could be mobbed and I don't know how the kitchen will keep up. Food was good but not great.

    We went with a party of 6. The restaurant was empty when we arrived at 6:45 on a Tuesday. When we left only less than 1/2 was full. Hope their business picks up as the food is delicious. They start you off with a complimentary small antipasto--very nice. We waited awhile for wine and then to order. The waiter could see we were having conversations. Two people ordered flounder francais and they siad it was excellent. The chicken parm was not hot enough but that was rectified. I ordered 2 appetizers for dinner: grilled octopus on arugula with tiny white beans--delish. I also had a large antipasto plate--wow! It was so big! Five different kinds of meats, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, beans, olives, cheese--took 3/4 of it home!

    Great restaurant in Royal Palm Plaza. Delightful evening of Al Fresco dining in the heart of downtown Boca Raton. Outstanding service and a great menu of Italian Classics. The Chef offers to prepare dishes that aren't on the menu! Wow! Alex and Mara welcome their guests with warmth and appreciation....Love this restaurant ...And if you are looking for Outstanding table service, request Igor.....the nicest and friendliest server in Boca....Great Evening!

    When you come to Piattini you feel like you have arrived at your best friends house. But the food is so much better! You are treated warmly and the service is great. Even more important the food is outstanding. From pork chops to eggplant rolletini the food is the best you can eat for gourmet Italian in south Florida. The prices are moderate and we love coming here. The chef is the BEST!

    I definitely would return to try more dishes. My friend and I had fettucine with clams in a white sauce. We thought it was delicious. Two people at my table had chicken parmesan, one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. The service was not that great and he wasn't that friendly. They don't have a big bar menu."

    its located in mizner park area the food was very good we both had fish dishes , 1.had seafood over linguine in a white wine sauce, I had yellow tail snapper with liv sauce and two vegetables. we had the standard pasta p soup it had meat balls in it was diff and good. we finished with coffee. everything was fresh. the prices for this area are more than reasonable. note its $15 to bring your own wine which will work out much cheaper than ordering from the menu .we went on a tues evening and it a slow time of year..

    Four of us all enjoyed our dinner, including one vegetarian. The food was excellent. Request an outdoor table if the weather is nice, but you can't go wrong indoors. It's a charming place for a lovely evening. I have wanted to eat here for a while and finally made it. I'm so glad I did. I can't wait to go back.

    It was a "nice evening" but waiters were a bit shaky speaking english. As a result, not much conversation or interesting information provided concerning the dishes or preparation was forthcoming... Which would have made the experience rewarding and add to the Italian ambience, resulting in greater appreciation of what were well prepared dishes. Food was subtly tasty. Which was really nice for a change, instead of being slapped in the face with excess garlic or rosemary!

    Piattini has a challenge to overcome since this location has been so many restaurants before it. We were served good bread and a plate of tapas to start. While my friends had pasta dishes and Caesar salad and enjoyed both I had the veal Francese which was just ok, served with broccoli by choice. My husband enjoyed their special fish of the day which is served with a pizzialo sauce. You can add whatever you would like to it so he chose olives and onions, not knowing each additional topping was an extra $2. Not nice to not mention this when stating the specials. It was good but certainly not worth the extra $4. The Tartuffo for dessert was delicious. The cappuccinos were reasonable and good. Plus the wine by the glass was plentiful and good.

    otdiner2012VIP
    Dined on 3/15/2014
    One of the worse experiences. We arrived and it took the hostess 10 minutes to tell us they didn't have a table inside which was our preference. During that time, we heard 2 people complain that they had been there for more than an hour and hadn't been served. We sat outside (at a table abutting the parking lot) and ordered 4 appetizers (to be shared by 2 people) and a plate of pasta. We told the waiter the order in which we wanted the appetizers to come and they came all at once (which on hindsight was probably good as we wouldn't have gotten them otherwise). After 2 hours, we left without getting the pasta. The food was mediocre and definitely not worth the aggravation. There are much better choices, including some in the same center.

    Six of us dined at Piattini recently with mixed results. It was a Sunday evening and the restaurant was clearly understaffed. We sat outside and our waiter had tables indoors too.We got bottled water for the table but the waiter never asked for drink orders. We had to flag him down to order our meals. The food was slow to arrive. The chicken cacciatore and the gnocchi were delicious.the chicken paillard was rather bland. We decided against dessert after waiting so long to be served. The location and food have potential. They just need more help to make it all work.

    We had a 7:15 reservation for 4 on a Saturday night. We were running late, so I called and informed them that we would be about 15 mins. late. They said don't rush because they were also running late. We got there about 7:35, had trouble finding a parking space. We had to wait about 15 mins before we were seated. The food was okay, but nothing special. Reasonably priced, but not impressed enough to run back there again.

Wonderful menu....you can go light with a salad and a bowl of their wonderful homemade soup...or go for a signature pasta dish...Their veal dishes are delicious as well as their fish!. We love this restaurant and make a habit of introducing it to our friends. Alex was again attentive...Danny did an outstanding job as our server and Igor....who we really like did his share to make our evening a wonderful experience.

    The restaurant was updated which was nice but the new menu even better. It's authentic Italian food with some nice choices and you don't have to spend a fortune to get a nice weeknight dinner. The Gnocchi with pomodoro sauce blew me away, a simple dish but best I ever had. Seems like an older crowd but that's Boca I guess. The oudtoor tables are very nice but too many smokers.

    One of the nicest outdoor dining spots in Boca Raton, and the food is very good. Lillo and Alex are great together. I do wish they offered a small plate menu (after all, the word "piattini" means small plates!) My osso bucco was delicious but enough for 2-3 people. As a senior, enormous plates of food overwhelm me.
