Piatto Italian Ristorante (Galleria)
Marsala/PicataThe asparagus of course, with the crab must not be missed. hard to figure how I'll ever try any other opener. I saw someone having the veal scallopini and I couldn't resist, but the hard part was deciding between the marsala and the picata. Didn't really matter which I chose, I knew it would be a case of greener grass either way.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food; Good ValueFour of us went for an early dinner after a long day. We suspected that we would have a good experience when we noted that the proprietor was there. The food was quite good, in particular the Osso Buco special that 2 of us enjoyed. The wine list had a nice selection and was not overpriced. The service was fine, but nothing to write home about. While a couple folks enjoyed their Tiramisu for desert, the mini cannoli were pretty weak. The filling was not very good and they were garnished with too much pistachio. All-in-all a very good experience with good food, decent service and reasonable prices. It is not a "cheap" restaurant but, considering the quality of the food, it represents a very good value.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian FoodDine here if you want great atmosphere and food.My group was relaxed and comfortable .

The chicken alfredo and the salad both had too much salt.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMall you need is asparagus and crabPiatto is a delightful restaurant, and never fails to delight. It is a great place for conversation--whether your guest is a friend, loved one or business colleague, the setting is perfect for a discussion over a great meal. Their fried asparagus appetizer is one of the best dishes in the city, in my view--it's just wonderful. All of the entrees I've had have been fabulous as well. Add a glass of wine, and you have a perfect meal!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPiatto Italian Ristorante (GalleriaMy girlfriends and I meet at Piatto for drinks and dinner at least four times a year. We are planning to have our husbands join us in the very near future. We have never been disappointed in our excellent food or service. We are even seated at the same table each time we come which makes us feel even more special!
It is easy to get in and out even though it is in the heart of the busy Galleria area.
I do not remember our waiter's name (having a senior moment) but he was outstanding!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchWe visited on Mother's Day with my children and grandchildren. The food was excellent!! The asparagus and sausage, peppers and onion appetizers were to die for. The Veal dishes were the best I've had in a long time! We will definitely be going back. . .5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFamilyWe were looking for a place to out of town family and not being to loud and big.
