We had an event, followed
We had an event, followed by dinner for several dear friends. Piatti's did an excellent job catering the event, and accomodating a post-event dinner that doubled in size from our reservation.

One of us had a seafood salad
One of us had a seafood salad that was light and fresh,and the other a green salad with salmon. The salmon was requested to be cooked medium, but came so rare we thought it would wiggle off the plate. By the time the mistake was discovered, we were halfway through lunch. So we took it home to re-heat. The restaurant is all renovated, very sleek and modern. Frankly, I'm mystified as to why they did it. The layout remains the same, and the old tile floor and more homey decor were, we thought, more cozy and welcoming than the new. But our server was charming and eager to please, and well informed about some otherwise mysterious additions to the menu, including "crazy water" (a sauce). On the whole, well worth a visit.

Our meal and waitress was excellent. The bar wasn't that busy and it took a very long time for our cocktails after ordering. My Manhattan tasted almost like they used a little rose water, very strange taste. Dinner was wonderful all the way around the table, waitress was very attentive and I appreciated not having to ask for bread, they refilled on there own. The decor was a bit too minimalistic for me, I miss the other decor and table-clothes, thought it was a bit more elegant before. Maybe tablecloths would make it feel note like restaurants in Yountville, etc. Will come back as the location to East Sac works for us and the food was memorable. Shredded brussel sprouts with the chicken, amazing!

My family had Easter lunch/brunch
My family had Easter lunch/brunch at Piatti. We were a party of 10. The server was nice, but wasn't very knowledgable of several items we had questions about. Service was slow & her timing was so off. She initially took drink orders & only asked a few people. Didn't ask about kids drinks. Came back 3 times because she wasn't getting everyone's order. The drink orders took a long time & were inconsistent (different garnishes on same drinks...some came with straws, others nothing, etc). The food, however was amazing! Everyone loved their choices. Maybe with a more experienced server, the experience would have been perfect.

I took my mom and my mum and had a wonderful time. Our server Christopher is just the best. I wish there were more menu choices but all in all it was great.

I must say that my daughter and I enjoy coming to your restaurant whenever possible. It is comfortable and on Mothers Day, the service impeccable. Our server was fantastic, and I wish I could remember his name, but I do not. The food, as always, tasted fantastic...and one of our favorites is the bread with your oil/vinegar dipping......

Menu is new. Gnocchi with lamb was very good. Got bread and oil immediately but water arrived more than 5 minutes later. Their old signature dish, ravioli in lemon cream sauce, is no longer on the menu.

Good Food, Good Ambience
Has always been a family favorite. Simple, very tasty food served in attractive platters. Recommended.

a pleasant lunch
I took a family member to Piatti's for lunch. The food was wonderful,the staff were friendly,and the ambiance jovial and relaxing. I would certainly recommend it to my friends,coworkers,and relatives. I wish I could dine there every day!

Loved the veal
The veal was great!! Very tender and well seasoned, as were the vegetables. The service was attentive without being intrusive.

Great food and great service
Great place for a meet up with friends. Dine inside or out and enjoy the fabulous food. They are very accommodating and will even fix up a special dish if you have special dietary needs like vegetarian or vegan diets. Server was very attentive and made sure every dish was satisfactory. I would definitely eat there again!

Great Summer Dining on Patio
We met a another couple for dinner at Piatti this week and had a great evening! We intentionally arrived a bit early to enjoy the bar (Piatti has fabulous craft cocktails) and really enjoyed talking to the bartender and learning about the different drinks. We chose to sit out on the patio and got to soak up the beauitful Sacramento weather. The service was great and the food was oustanding! Piatti is a long time family favorite and we will definitely be back again soon.

I took a few of my employees for a mini recognition event. The food was excellent. The person at the front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant. Our waitress forgot our 2 orders of bruschetta. We had to remind someone. They came as we were finishing our meal. It was not very busy when we went so I think she just forgot we ordered appetizers. The manager was a bit rude when we tried to take a group picture. We asked her to take it for us. She looked annoyed but took it anyway. Worst picture ever. I have been here a few times. Food is always good. Not the best spot for an event.

We had a group celebrating a retirement. Appetizers and salads were outstanding! Entree delicious as well.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Haven't been back since the remodel. Refreshing look. Friendly or should I say, "Friendlier" staff - as Tesh, the new manager, personally introduced himself to our table and was extremely gracious and hospitable. A very nice touch, since we've never had anyone introduce themselves to us since they located here so many years ago.....
Interesting how such a simple gesture can make such a favorable impression when you least expect it.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A true gem!
The food was outstanding. The dishes tasted like we remembered they should taste! Flavorful, beautiful and seasoned just right. Local fresh ingredients. Our server, Will, was knowledgeable, attentive without being intrusive and made the dining experience special.

odd visit. generally i really
odd visit. generally i really enjoy the place. our waitress lacked a bit of training i would say and she was not observant. it did change our experience. minor blip in usually better place.

New manager making a difference?
This was our second visit to Piatti after the remodel and I think the first with the new general manager. Don't know if it was luck or the manager change, but there was a night and day difference. Our server was the best we've had there on any visit and we have been many times. Food (potato gnocchi, veal scallopini) was excellent. The manager stopped us on the way out to ask how our meal was - he was quite nice and obviously is interested in doing a good job with this restaurant. We will return sooner next time!

Good Food and Excellent Service
My stepson gave us a gift certificate for dinner and we were finally able to break away as we live about 40 miles away. When we arrived we were greeted with a very cheery hostess and were seated right away. I don't think we even had time to blink before a basket of bread and dipping oil and water appeared.
Our waiter gave us our menus and without hesitation asked if we had any questions and left us to ponder what our choices were going to be. After allowing us plenty of time to make our choices he returned and took our starter and main courses.
The ONLY glitch for the evening was the bar was out of the Port my wife ordered after dinner. Our waiter brought a substitute and did not charge us for it and was very applogetic . Very Good

A Perfect Evening on the Patio
We had not been to Piatti since their remodel. We were pleasantly surprised. The patio is awesome for a summer evening dinner. The food was excellent, as was the service. We will return.
7/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
My husband and I went here on a spur-of-the-moment date night. They gave amazing service, made us feel really special, and the food was wonderful! (and the banana chocolate chip bread pudding that was requested to us was to die for!!!) The outdoor dining was lovely too, the atmosphere was friendly, but intimate. We plan on coming back, and we've been telling friends about this place!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a hit
The panzanella, the pasta and our halibut were over the top. Our server was fantastic.

Second Visit a Little Disappointing
Our second visit (same party of four) for dinner was two months after the first. We had such a delicious experience, we wanted a repeat. But, the menu had changed. It changes every week or two. So after two months, the items I was looking for disappeared, including salad, entrée, and dessert items. That was the disappointment. The food is always very good, with a pleasing presentation. The three other members of our party enjoyed a repeat of their entrées. The service was EXCELLENT. Laura was very attentive and personable. A fair amount of tables are available for outdoor dining. Located in an upscale outdoor shopping mall.

Excellent experience especially for a first date! New Server Sally is a special girl! So personable and congenial!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a place we don't often think of going to. But we're glad we did! We greatly enjoyed eating on the patio. The water gently softened the surrounding noise and the ambience was delightful. The service was excellent and the food was good. We would certainly recommend it to our friends.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and really great service. A little pricey but worth it.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the ricotta meatballs as a starter, and the papardelle as an entree, all I can say is WOW!!! Excellent meal and outstanding service. First time here and I can't wait to go back.

Very Good Brunch
I was happy to see breakfast options on the menu. Poached eggs were cooked just right, potatoes were well seasoned and browned, bacon was delicious. Very good mimosa. Waitstaff was very helpful. I would do brunch again.

Erica was great!
Erica, our waitperson was knowledgable, friendly, efficient and had the right amount of "check in" with us! Thank you!

Great Date Restaurant
I went to Piatti's recently on a 5th date on a Wednesday evening because I wanted a romantic environment with great food and wine that would not be too dark or too noisy, while still having a "vibe". Piatti's delivered. The service was great. I arrived before my date and was seated. When my date arrived she was escorted to my table immediately without confusion. The food was for the most part excellent. The olive appetizer, while a bit too large for just two people, was delicious. I had the crispy skin chicken. It was moist, skin crispy, but a bit over-salted. The brussel sprouts that came with it were fantastic. My date had the spinach ricotta ravioli, which was also great. I recommend Piatti's!

Birthday lunch not the greatest
While our service was extraordinary, the food was, at best, just "okay." The menu had a strange contstruction to it, in retrospect. Best way for me to explain it would be to say things just didn't "flow together;" guess the word would be "haphazard." Tried it with two other friends for a birthday lunch and had hoped to get steered back for a subsequent dinner with hubby. that's not likely to happen anytime soon. One point in the menu's favor is that pasta dishes are offered in two sizes--small and full entree size. That is a big plus to me.
I'm kind of sorry it didn't meet my expectations, as we are in that neighborhood 2-3 times a month.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our pasta lunches were perfectly prepared and very tasty. The bread was excellent as well and also the dipping sauce. For the most part, we had a pleasant experience.

We had Erica for our waitperson
We had Erica for our waitperson for the third time. She is terrific!! She is knowledgable, efficient, friendly and inobtrusive. She made our lunch experiences memorable. Thank you!
