Abusive service from our waiter, Andre. He took our order, then disappeared. Other wait staff in the restaurant were helpful but slow.

Entrees appeared. No Andre.
Wanted additional items. No Andre.

Food was excellent.

When Andre finally did come back near the end of the meal, a member of our party asked where he had been because he had wanted some fresh ground pepper on his Caesar Salad. Andre replied: "well, better luck next time"

Then Andre comes back and cracks ground pepper on the empty table (the dinner dishes had been cleared) and my guest.

The food was very good but please find another option in Santa Fe until Andre is fired.

Very quaint, beautifully decorated Italian “tapas” style dining. Attentive waitstaff, diverse menu with local ingredients and great wine list. 50% off all wine bottles on Wednesday. Happy Hour until 6pm, 1/2 price glasses of wine and 1/2 price on all appetizers/salads including small size pasta dishes. Great value and excellent food.

We enjoyed Il Piatto with friends, but not as much as we used to. The noise level was frightful, frantic, difficult, not like a fine restaurant. The wait staff was running, not together and not really interested in service. The food is good, as it used to be, but I would not return. We had a reservation, but they sat us in one room and our friends in another...until they called me to ask where we were?? They apologized, but that should not have happened! Needs some assistance in management.

Our trout wrapped in prosciutto was lathered in butter/olive oil, and the prosciutto was tough...could barely cut with a knife.

We enjoyed our dinner at Il Piatto. We had the artichoke appetizer, the seasonal green salad, the pasta with duck ragu and the veal marsala. All were delicious -- the salad was especially good. Nice wine list. We had a hard time finding a restaurant open a little later in Santa Fe, and we were very happy we ended up here.

While visiting Santa Fe, my wife and I had dinner on a Saturday evening at Il Piatto Italian Farmhouse Kitchen. They offer an afternoon Happy Hour every day from 4:30-6:00 pm. We made reservations for 6:00 pm on Open Table but showed up a little after 5:30 pm for Happy Hour. We ordered glasses of Maschio Prosecco to start, their Caramelized Eggplant Salad to share, and then glasses of Tormaresca Chardonnay from Puglia, Italy, to have with our entrees. My wife ordered their Prosciutto Wrapped Idaho Trout and I ordered their Branzino (baby Australian Sea Bass) Piccata. Hers came with New Mexico wild mushrooms, tomatoes, lemon butter & grilled polenta. Mine came with sautéed arugula, fondant new potatoes, capers, mushrooms, & grass fed butter. Our Prosecco and Chardonnay were very good and the latter paired very well with our fish dishes. The eggplant salad was excellent. The arugula was very fresh and crisp. The eggplant was topped with caramelized onions and red peppers and cheese. It was very good. Both of our entrees were exquisite, very tasty and cooked to perfection. We shared tastes of each other’s meals so we can both attest to the great flavors! We shared a daily special dessert, a fresh berry tart with strawberries and blackberries along with Cappuccinos. Yum!! When our bill arrived, we found that our prosecco, wine and starter were all half-priced because they were ordered before their Happy Hour expired! Wesley, our server, was also exceptional, very friendly and attentive, and knew his menu and wines. It was clearly the best meal and dining experience we have had in our two-week visit in Santa Fe. We will certainly return on another visit to the city.

Went here for a pre-theatre dinner and was pleasantly surprised we were able to take advantage of the happy hour...which meant half priced appetizers and salads and glasses of wine. The quality was stellar. We will go again soon.

The food was delicious. The prosciutto wrapped trout was amazing and the pumpkin ravioli was just enough sweetness that it was overpowering. The prices are more expensive than it shows on open table.

I do enjoyed our Memorial weekend dining there. The naked trout was superb, and the recommended white wine with it was paired well. The Rockefeller scallops were a high point! Thank you for great service and a charming atmosphere.

We went to Il Piatti for my husband's birthday and, due to our schedule that day, ended up making a 3:45pm reservation for a late lunch.

The restaurant itself is rustic and charming.

The $25 3-course special was a wonderful deal. The food was fresh and well-prepared. The service was attentive and professional.

Looking forward to exploring the dinner menu.

Happy hour prices are an excellent deal. All appetizers and small orders of pasta are half off. Suited our group of friends perfectly as we were going to a performance later that evening. Try the spaghetti bolognese, gorgonzola ravioli, or duck ragu pappardelle. Salads are good too. Pannacotta abig hit as shared dessert.

The waiter was very quick. When he checked on the table he assumed we were doing fine and ran away. Did not wait to check with us with an answer. I got up to get my wine after waiting too long. I raised my hand for more water. He delivered a salad with dressing on it when I was clear about no dressing.

We have eaten at Il Piatto many times and used to enjoy it very much. We returned this year after not going for a couple of years. The prices seemed much higher this time around. The mushroom strudel appetizer was delicious and the high point of the meal. For an entree I decided on the seafood linguini. There were two sizes, priced at $26 or $38. After discussion with the waiter I decided on the large plate since I'm a hearty eater. What arrived was less than ample, half of a full plate in terms of what I'm used to at other restaurants. In retrospect I should have checked whether I got the $26 size by mistake, but that seems impossible since the tab for two was $159 before tip (no bottle of wine, just one glass each). Last, the berry-mascarpone tart wasn't particularly fresh, and it would have been better to serve it with a knife since the philo dough crust was too tough to cut with a fork. The food otherwise was good, but the dessert was not, hence the average rating on the meal as a whole.
