Diner Reviews
  • "This was not my first visit to Ti Piacera. I've always been happy with my food and service but this particular outing was less than stellar. Firstly our waiters changed through out the evening and no one could seem to get our order right. Short of the busboy bringing water to the table nothing was right. I left not having consumed my main course as it seems to have gotten lost by one of the many waiters we had that evening. We received a free dessert for the mix-up but I actually wanted a meal with my companions. Just an FYI guys your roasted garlic dipping sauce wasn't even passable. "

  • "Was looking for a reservation (on Mother's Day!) for a large group of people, and found this place on OpenTable. The service was great and the food was delicious! I had actually been here once years before and forgotten about it, because I terrible with names. Their menu is classic Italian comfort food in the best sense. I really value a straightforward, unpretentious menu, especially when it's so well priced. Looking forward to going back much sooner this time around!"

  • "We enjoy this little restaurant. Sometimes at the last minute we decide we would like to go out, have a good cocktail and a delicious plate of pasta without having to spend our entire paycheck. Ti Piacera is this place."

  • "Very pleased with our dinner experience here:. Had reservations for 8 clock, due to not being able to find parking showed up at around 8:20. They seated us right away. Food was excellent, great service. I defiantly reccomend this place."

  • "This was my third time dining at Ti Piacera. I found it, several months ago, when I was walking home and thought it looked like a good place. I went, that evening, for dinner with a friend and have loved it ever since. The food is delicious, the service is great, and it's just an all-around great place. They are gracious, friendly, warm, inviting, attentive, and the food always impresses."

  • "We had a fabulous dining experience at Ti Piacere, an owner managed trattoria. The attention to detail and commitment to ensure each guest had a good experience defines this restaurant. Appetizers were well thought out, my capresse salad had just enough rich balsamic and the carpaccio melted in your mouth. Generous braised lamb shanks were the hit of the evening. Desert of home made spumoni ice cream and poached pear finished off the meal nicely. Overall, a wonderful experience we would not hesitate to try again."

  • "Came here for brunch. This place has all the makings of a great spot, except the food. My girlfriend's food was cold when it came out. The hollandaise sauce on my Eggs Benedict was sour, and the eggs were way overdone. Very weird."

  • "The food was good to very good. Not really distinctive but certainly a place I would recommend, especially for those who want a restaurant in the Polk Gulch area. Would go again, but wouldn't travel across town for this place as I would for The House, Acquerello, and a few others..."

  • "I've only had brunch here so maybe the dinner experience is different. I ordered chocolate chip pancakes and they were horrible. They were dense and not tasty at all."

  • "I came here with a group of 14 people for dinner before a black tie event. The staff here were extremely understanding and accommodating to our needs. It's not always easy to serve a large party, but the service was consistent and with a smile. I would recommend Ti Piacera to everyone!"

  • "It had a boisterous and happy atmosphere. The food was OK. My risotto was al dente but bland. The other dishes were the same. The wine list was small and uninteresting."

  • "My husband and I looked for a local Italian restaurant for a pre-concert date. We found this through Open Table and it was great! Perfect for a "just right" meal--not too heavy, not too light. The atmosphere was pleasant and the waiter was engaging and prompt. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this for a dinner for two!"

  • "We were having drinks at The Top of the Mark and searched nearby Italian restaurants and Ti Piacera popped up. It is truly a neighborhood gem, they sat us right away even though we were early. The service was incredible, delicious bread with garlic olive oil, I ordered the margarita pizza and my boyfriend ordered a pasta dish with shrimp that was recommended by our server. We were stuffed but still ordered the biscotti at the end and it was fresh and tasty."

  • "Tired of fighting crowds at all the popular places (some of which it's not even clear why they're popular) we had brunch at Ti Piacera and were so glad we did! Cute spot, great food, charming waiter (even if his English was not quite up to snuff), what more could you want? We had a little trouble getting the check when we needed to leave but all was well in the end."

  • "My colleagues and I recently went to lunch at Ti Piacera and we're absolutely BLOWN away. This is the best Italian restaurant I have enjoyed in a very long time! The bruschetta was delicious and their mushroom polenta was perfectly flavored! Their salad was perfectly dressed and tossed with fresh ingredients. We also had the porchini mushroom ravioli in a pesto cream sauce that was incredible. The chicken fettucine, mushroom risotto and eggplant Parmesan... All delicious! They serve this amazing roasted garlic in olive oil with fresh baked bread as well that is to DIE for! Aside from the food, the ambience and service experience was superb! Exposed brick and candlelight, it's gorgeous! Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!"

  • "This was among the worst dining experiences I've had. It took 40 min to place a food order; when the food came only one of the four dishes our group ordered had any flavor. When the entrees arrived we ordered 4 wine refills, which never came. Next time our waiter came by (20 minutes later) we mentioned we'd never gotten our wine. He launched into a long explanation about how someone had told him we wanted wine, but he hadn't been sure, etc etc (of course he didn't come by to check with us!) then said he'd bring our 3 Chiantis and a Sangiovese right away. We corrected him that it was 3 cabs. The wine finally arrived - after our entrees had been cleared. ... Poor food, worse service, and overall the worst $45pp I've ever spent on a meal."

  • "The restaunt took care of our table of 9 very graciously. A few members of our group were stuck in traffic, and they were very considerate, told us not to worry, no problem, etc. Very unusual in a big city. The food and service were great!"

  • "Went here for my girlfriend's birthday, so-so appetizers. Waited 45 minutes for a salad & an eggplant parmagiano and still didn't get it. We got tired of waiting, paid for our appetizers and left. Would not come back here."

  • "Our experience started off well with an excellent wait person and very good lemon drop martinis. Alas, the entrees were quite disappointing: fish entree was minute in size; veal was tough and should have been sent back; the cioppino size only became adequate when we asked for pasta to go in it."

  • "Yeah, there is gluten free pasta at this delicious restaurant! The service was also friendly and helpful."

  • "Absolutely loved our dinner here on a beautiful day--until it got busy. Got here between happy hour and dinner rush. The food was quite decent but I did wait awhile for my oysters at first. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, as was the busser which shocked me! My dinner partner has allergies and when the busser dropped off a dip we grilled him on what was in it-he knew everything. COOL. It wasn't terribly busy until 730ish, which is normal I think. The bar looked like the it got really fun at night! Once it got busy our server disappeared and we needed to go. Totally understandable and that's our only complaint! We've been checking out fancy dinners lately so a small place like this is hit or miss. Everything was great-will retur"

Great, really good rucola and fennel salad, and dish of mushroom ravioli and the pork marsala, both superb. Split a classic creme caramel and voila!"

  • "Friends and I celebrated a birthday here recently and enjoyed the experience very much. Our reservations were for 6:00, so the restaurant was not very crowded, just a few tables with small groups, but it started to get busier as the evening wore on. We really enjoyed our appetizer, main courses, and the wonderful dessert. The wait staff was very attentive. All in all, a very enjoyable experience, in a good location. We all would recommend this restaurant."

  • "We were looking for a close-by Italian restaurant to the Holiday Inn on Van Ness and found Ti Piacera. While some of the reviews were less than flattering, there were enough positive comments to warrant giving the restaurant a try. We're glad we did! The service was quick, friendly and efficient. The food (veal piccata and chicken marsala) was very good as was the tieramisu for dessert. All-in-all a very nice, casual dining experience."

  • "You'd expect to find Ti Piacera a few blocks to the north where the restaurants get a little nicer and more crowded. But on its stretch of Polk Street it is a gem. It wasn't crowded at all, which could have helped with the service. Everything was timed exactly right. The ingredients were fresh, the dishes had good flavor. We don't usually drink wine so I don't know if the wine list is "notable", but we did get a good recommendation. I wouldn't say it's a romantic place, not because of anything wrong in the restaurant, but because I wouldn't take a date to a restaurant that has a view of Walgreens."
