    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.

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.

    We had the butcher block for our appetizer all of the cheeses and meats. It was okay, we have had better. The wines were good. I had gluten free pasta dish with fennel sausage, it was good. 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. The restaurant was also chilly.

    Our group of 6+ was typical and did not make reservations until night of. Piatti was great because they were able to seat our group with little notice. Food was excellent. Beef was moist, tender and very succulent. Definitely rustic Italian. Great wine list, full bar, and delicious food. Maybe only down side is that it can be a bit crowded and noise level a bit loud.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    We go to this restaurant often...this time may be our last. We were a group of 7 with reservations made more than a week ahead. We were seated right next to the open kitchen area. The restaurant was full by the time we left, and the clatter of the kitchen along with noise of the patrons prevented any meaningful conversation. The waiter could not even hear us. The open kitchen design with no sound barriers in restaurants was a fun trend, but has had a real downside. Rating should include a noise level of "unacceptable" for conversation.

    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.

    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.
