We have been to Piatti several
We have been to Piatti several times before and never disappointed. Food is excellent and the service staff very attentive. It is great for couple's, families meeting up with UW students and a very nice respite from a day of shopping. Today, we arrived for an early dinner, asked for a quieter section because we had business to complete and got it. Really like that it is not one of the new "noisy" restaurants where you have to shout to be heard over the din. And it is great for people watching as it attracts the grand dames from Laurelhurst as well as the U Village shopping crowd.

Excellent food and service
Came here for a special occasion. Service was excellent and felt very personal. They made several accomodations for us in adjusting the dishes we ordered, cutting a cake, etc. When we arrived, everyone commented first on the excellent atmosphere. Food was delicious and unique, a little salty but easily adjustable to your tastes. The salmon is highly recommended, and they also made the best gnocchi I've ever had.

I loved my dinner experience at Piatti. Using opentable reservations we didn't have to wait for a table at all. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive without being overbearing. The atmosphere was a bit loud with so many tables in one space, but it was fun getting to sit near the open kitchen and watch our food being made. We ordered the crustini appetizer, it was scrumptious! My husband had the organic chicken with mashed potatoes and mushrooms which he enjoyed and I ordered the margarita pizza. I'm usually a picky eater but all the food I had was great. The drink I ordered was a bit too strong and our waiter did not hesitate to find a way to fix it for me. We enjoyed every minute of our time at Piatti. Thank you.

RE: Lovely Atmosphere!
Great lunch spot to relax after a morning of shopping. The atmosphere is very nice. The service was good. The food was pretty good but not outstanding. Great wine list. We would definitely go back.

Party of ten
Our party of ten was treated very well, the food was great and there was something for everyone including children and people with food allergies. We did not feel rushed and we had enough room so that we weren't in the way of other diners when they arrived and left.

Neighborhood restaurant with pizazz
Piatti's is a great restaurant within the bustling University Village. Take a day of shopping, a little coffee drinks and the stop in Piatti's for your great dinner. Prompt service, energy atmosphere, and good food.

Favorite place in U-District!
Piatti's is definitely our go-to restaurant when my parents are the UW area. Whether we go for lunch or dinner, we always have a great food and great service. It's both a restaurant that is fun for a night out with friends and adults, or accommodating for children as well (we've brought my 11 year old brother several times and they always take good care of him).

Food was great. Our lunch
Food was great. Our lunch was for business purposes and the atmosphere was appropriate to conduct the meeting without needing to shout or be overly sensitive about information we were discussing.

Great Food and service was amazing
We were under a time crunch because of graduation and running late. They were amazing at making sure we got out on time. And, to top that our food was wonderful and the service perfect. We will go back when we have more time to fully enjoy the experience.

Service by Nick
Nick was very good, friendly and informative. We appreciated his service. We liked that the parking was attainable and free.

Had a nice lunch here. Food was tasty. Ambiance would have been great except for the screaming toddler at the next table.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of our favorite places to go for an especially nice treat!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even though it is a chain, you will be surprised how great the food is. They regularly change the menu around and the restaurant is really nice. I go there regularly and one of my top neighborhood places. Always very good service!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a nice place for lunch! Convienently located, good wine list, nice menu. Always have I had great service and a wonderful time! I will return as it is consistent. Having said that, I have two issues. Parking is ridiculous and stressful. There has to be a better solution. And the menu sounds better than it is. I have never eaten anything bad here but I have never been blown a way. Pasta dish was so yummy fresh but under seasoned. Same with the mussels. Pea purée appetizer was amazing the first time I had it and over minty the second. And I need to stress we are discussing the difference between good and great. I enjoy the attentive service, an ice bucket on my table, a blanket if needed and some pretty decent food. We'll be back.

Good food outstanding service!
The Halibut was DELICIOUS! Paired with the snap peas it was so fresh tasting. Perfect for a summer evening. Our sever was very personable and really made the evening pleasant.

always a pleasure
i meet friends at piatti occasionally and have for years. the food and surroundings are comfortable and comforting....it feels like home. it's a delight to have some consistency and history in city who;s restaurant scene is constantly swirling....

Great Neiborhood Gem
We always have good food at the restaurant. The service is great and the price doesn't hurt and our guests from Beverly Hills enjoyed themselves.

Piatt's is great!
Piatti's has a great menu and fabulous food. It's always busy so you know people like eating there. It's quality and efficiency. The staff is very helpful. This is my first choice when eating, especially when I want to go somewhere special, in the University area.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
always well done
We eat here for our University area special place. Students can't really afford it so it's nice to take them for "fancy" dinners. Prices are fine (for us working adults) and the food is always exceptional.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food, amazing drink, amazing service. Just amazing
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wondering where to eat in the UVillage and know that it will be there over time? Piatti's is a cornerstone of UVillage where one can count on excellent food, high quality service, and a pleasant dining experience. And, as it has over the past decade or so, be there when you want to eat out again.

Pleasant Family Dinner
Good service and food. It was a birthday dinner and they provided a candle with dessert. We had pizzas and pasta so simple fare, good value and taste. Service was excellent. Meals were delivered simultaneously piping hot by a crew of 3 or 4. Just the way it should be done. No complaints.

One of my favorite Italian places
The ingredients are always fresh, and the dishes are delicious. I especially love the outside dining on a sunny day.
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
After a slump in performance, Piatti was pretty darn good this time - specially the service. Penne was perfectly done with lots of flavor. The soup on the lunch menu wasn't ready for lunch service.. and a touch on the salty side .. but good.
Desserts were yum!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
celebrated two birthdays, received two free desserts!! very thoughtful. we also benefitted from a slow night, so it was
quiet. when the room is filled, the hard surface reverberates and makes for a very noisy atmosphere.
great service that night too!

Loved eating outside
My friend and I throughly enjoyed lunch together on the patio of Piatti. Food was tasty and service was attentive but not interfering. Definitely will return.

We had limited time and they were very accommodating to be sure we were served and fed in the allotted time.

Very Good Italian Food
Even though Piatti is a chain, the menu is imaginative and there are specials for more choices. Started with excellent breads. The minestrone was very good. We really like the roasted duck pizza and the rigatoni with lamb sausage. We had two appetizers from the specials menu - the sott cheese and pate - both were excellent. The desserts were great - even compted us one for my birthday. The beer and wine list features many local offerings at reasonable prices. Piatti had a nice blend of good food, service and prices. A nice alternative when near UDub.

The butternut squash was amazing! Loved the pork ricotta meatball...they melted in your mouth.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Piatti is one of my favorite Italian restaurants. The food is great and it is great for a crowd or a small group. I love their pasta dishes!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
a great place to eat ... staff is friendly and attentive A favorite of mine!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reliably excellent, comfortably welcoming, appropriate and considerate service, wisely balanced menu. My guests are always very happy to join me there.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well managed and well delivered food service. Attentive management. Very satisfying overall.

Dine with Friends
We discovered this restaurant when we celebrated an anniversary a few years back. We enjoyed it so much we return with out of town guests when possible and dine here to celebrate special occasions. Relaxing, taking your time, enjoying the food - which never disappoints-is encouraged.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We arrived a little early for our reservation, but were promptly seated--at a table by the fireplace! The waitstaff were efficient and considerate, as always. The ministroni soup was delicious, but the butternut ravioli had little butternut squash flavor and was rather greasy. My companion's pot roast was tender and delicious, and the tirimisu was decadent.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Italian in a mall
A friend and I went to Piatti prior to a performance at UW's Meany Theater. They have a really great fall menu and I'm always excited to get back there when they add butternut squash and fall vegetables to the menu. This meal was no exception. For a great appetizer, start with the mussels.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the squash ravioli , I would recommend. My friend and I spent 3 hours there and never felt rushed. I have met friends there on several occasions and have never felt disappointed.

Our group of 12 had a very nice experience at Piatti's. The menu had something for everybody. The Seattle Restaurant Week specials were an unexpected bonus!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another good meal at U Village
My wife has eaten at Piatti several times, this was only my second visit--one lunch, one dinner. Both were well above average and beyond what we'd expect from a restaurant in a shopping mall. Food is well prepared, prices reasonable and the staff on both occasions has been uniformly and genuinely warm and efficient. Highly recommended.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, great service
It would be easy to dismiss this busy restaurant as nothing special because it is part of a shopping center. However, it is a whole lot better than you would expect, with generous portions, attentive service, careful presentations and tasty food. We sampled their fresh linguini with in house made Italian sausage and clams and it was wonderful! The meal was accompanied by a diet destroying basket of bread with a killer dipping sauce. Salads are beautifully balanced and quite large. Easy to over order here, and not cheap, but a good special occasion restaurant with free parking.

Gluten Free Dream!
When I was handed the GF menu I was surprised and delighted to see how vast it was. I really enjoyed my meal and the simple things, like being able to have a UDI's roll for dipping in oil.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
our waitress was busy serving
our waitress was busy serving a big table but took time to come over to us and apologize and say that she would be with us soon. Then one of the managers came over just after her and did the same thing but also took our drink orders. A sign of a very good restaurant we thought. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Would really go back.

Piatti as a community builder!
We went to Piatti on this particular night because they were sharing proceeds with NEST, a Seattle nonprofit. Thanks for doing this, Piatti! The cauliflower flan w/watercress was awesome! Never had anything like it before. The papperdelle and risotto dishes were fine, if not unforgettable. We got a table by the fireplace, as requested. THANKS! The waitress wasn't sure which chardonnay I'd prefer, so brought me two tastes. A nice touch. All in all, a nice evening. And one for a good cause!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure....
Piatti has a wide variety of menu items to suit everyone in a party. Quick friendly service, pleasant without being intrusive. Excellent food, never had a bad dish there in all the years I've gone for lunch. The only complaint is that it does get a bit noisy when full. Physically comfortable, good light.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Keep it up
Had brunch here on Sunday. The food is uniformly great and the service was good. One of the great restaurants in the area. I eat here at least twice per month.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Piatti's never disappoints. Diverse food choices and always fresh. Service is friendly and attentive. Great value also!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
We always have a great meal at Piatti. Thank goodness I thought to make a reservation because it was slammed by 6 pm, people being turned away in droves. The menu always has something new, interesting (and delicious) to try. Highly recommend eating here.

The service was especially good. Excellent suggestions. We were not rushed. Lots of kids on Friday night so a little chaotic but great for families.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always enjoy our dining at Piatti. It is just the right place to meet friends, not too casual and not too fancy.
I had requested the fireplace room and it was honored which I really appreciated.
Parking in the Village is a problem, but would not keep us from returning to Piatti.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Try the salmon
The salmon dish with pesto, brussel sprouts, crispy bacon bits and arugula was incredible. The management was also very kind and came out to check on our meal. They were a little delayed with one of our dishes and kindly provided us dessert on the house. Great service overall. We'll definitely be back.
