Waiter gave us the desert menu and we never saw him agin. I had to go to the bar to pay check.
Despite having reservations, we had to wait in a crowded doorway without apology from young inexperienced hostess. I kept waiting for an apology, but instead got lots of hostility from the obviously inexperienced greeter.
Food was average, one out of four orders was incorrectly served. In a foodie town like Santa Fe, there is a plethora of better choices.
We had reservations for a party of 6 we arrived at least 15 minutes before our reservation and we did not get seated until over 45 minutes after our reservation, many others had the same problem. They seemed to have overbooked and they could not recover well. The manger did not seem to be helping the hostess at all, the hostess was new at her job and did not do a good job communicating with the people waiting. The food was good but the problem wth the reservation was not acceptable and had an affect on the overall quality of the experience. Unless they fix this problem I would not recommend anyone visit this restaurant.
We had a very nice time at Il Piatto. The service was very good. We enjoyed
the quaint experience.
Having eaten there previously while visiting Santa Fe, we were looking forward to delicious food, good wine, and the lovely ambiance. The disappointment was the food. The saltimbocca was tough fro over cooking and the veal was not fork tender. It was thick and tough.
Il Piatto was our chosen lunch venue, the menu is limited but fresh and Italian. Service is efficient but not rushed, as this location is off the plaza it tends to be frequented more by locals than tourists. Nice selection of wine by the glass as well as three-course lunch menu for $25, excellent value. I have dined here on numerous occasions and they deliver consistently fine cuisine. No negatives of note.
Food was truly awful. Wine pour was anemic and overpriced. Server argued about why the small pour was justified. The veal scalopina was thick and loaded with garlic. The polenta was tasteless. Must be a new chef because last time it was quite good. This was a Tuesday night.
Everything was great! Went during happy hour so prices were very reasonable. We had 2 appertizers and shared an entree and all 3 dishes and dessert were excellent!
My husband and I had a very nice meal at this restaurant on Tuesday evening. I had the gnocchi and my husband had steak for our entrees. Both were above average but not spectacular. For starters I had soup and it was very good. My husband had the full leaf Caesar Salad (which he asked them to chop and dress) and he thought this was good. Our sever recommended a very good 1/2 bottle of red wine for us to share. The service was good but sparse. Overall we enjoyed our dinner, the restaurant was attractive and the food was above average. We will be return to the restaurant but in a city of wonderful food it will not be our first choice.
The service was great, food was excellent. I love that there is the option of smaller portions.
Mother daughter weekend and we enjoyed so much !
Great service and food! Thanks
We’ve been to IL Piatto several times and were anxious to go back. Right from the start our experience was poor 1) hostess who wasn’t interested in our arrival 2) seated at a table set for two (there were three of us) and having to ask for silverware 4 times. 3) Wesley never introduced himself nor welcomed us 4) water glasses never refilled, even when asked 5) the ‘specials’ menu we were given didn’t match the one on the chalk board- Wesley did tell us the chalkboard version was for the previous night 6) never asked if there was anything more we would like - we all would have had another glass of wine. The food was very good and if you can get through the horrible service, this place is for you. The following evening we had dinner around the corner at a similar priced restaurant and had both an excellent meal and outstanding service. We’ll go back there again. IL Piatto- probably not.
I found this gem of a restaurant multiple years ago on a trip to Santa Fe. We always go here a couple of times while in town each time. Food, service and atmosphere are dead on each and every time.
The food was great. We especially liked the pumpkin raviolis and shrimp scampi.
Unfortunately the noise level was very high. Music was loud and it was full so very loud from people too.
Il piatto is on our must-go list every visit to Santa Fe so we know how good the food is but on this trip each of our 4 choices could have been a photo in a cookbook. Very impressive presentation and tasted as good as it looked.
When in Santa Fe we always make a visit to Il Piatto. The food is matched in its excellence by the service and ambiance.
Food was good though the gorgonzola ravioli was a bit salty. Main issue was the service. No attention to simple things like filling water glasses or seeing if we had what we needed. The bill was basically tossed on the table. Had been here before and brought friends this time. Be hard pressed to come back.
Service was slow and waiter may have been assigned too many tables. Their specials Heirloom tomatos and mozzarella was light on heirloom and heavy on mozzarella...overpriced. The special egg plant pasta was average and was light on both pasta and egg plant and was topped with cold pieces of mozarella...not worth being called a special. I would not recommend choosing their specials.
The Eggplant Farfalle was excellent, as was the Velarde Apple Strudel.
We went to Il Piatto last night. The experience was underwhelming. When spending $200 (not including gratuity) I expect the food and service to be exceptional.
We started with the Gorgonzola & Walnut Ravioli and the Pappardelle. Neither had any "Wow, this is good!" factor.
For the mains I had the Veal Scallopini Marsala and my wife had the Prosciutto Wrapped Idaho Trout. The scallopini was good but $15 good, not $38 good. It pretty much tasted like a veal cutlet, decent polenta though, probably the highlight of the course. My wife enjoyed the trout. It came with grilled polenta which she had me taste. Taste in the sense that it had none. It makes me question if the chef(s) are actually tasting what they are serving. While we both love polenta, 7/8 of the portion was left on her plate.
We each had dessert, I had the Tiramisu, don't recall what my wife had. Both were uninspired.
A very disappointing dinner. No chance of a second chance.
Nothing about this place was good. I would not recommend it.
We had a front-window table (thanks, Open Table) in this small, romantic, true Italian restaurant in the heart of Santa Fe. All the food was delicious, and a nice break from the many New Mexican meals we had already enjoyed while in town. They offer appetizer portions of most entrees, which is really nice, if you had a big plate of enchiladas for lunch a few hours before. We took advantage of that, and then had room for dessert, which was also delicious. The service was excellent and friendly, and we will return the next time we're in Santa Fe.
Since it was our first time to visit Il Piatto, we shared a few dishes and enjoyed every bite. We started with Bay Scallops Rockefeller, followed by Pumpkin Ravioli and finished with Prosciutto Wrapped Idaho Trout; we selected a chardonnay and cabernet to enjoy with our meal. The food was prepared and presented beautifully and was absolutely delicious.
It’s all good as usual. Fabulous carpaccio . Great ambiance
Just wine-Would have really liked a cocktail before dinner. Food good-nothing special with respect to creativity. We both had fish, a welcome respite from TexMex. Bread had a very salty crust making it inedible. Service was adequate, nothing special. Waiter seemed a little pretentious.
We were in Santa Fe for 10 days and loved it so much we went twice!
Il Piatto claims to be Italian. I disagree. I ordered Pumpkin Ravioli. It was presented swimming in butter, sun-dried tomatoes and pecorino Romano cheese! Was unable to taste the pumpkin or the sage which was supposed to be in the dish.
Sat in the bar room, big mistake.
The food is very good but the noise level intolerable in the bar area of the restaurant. Also on half price night for wine bottles, they did not have enough inventory in stock. We had asked about three wines and
they were out. Nor good.
We dine here often. The happy hour is the best deal in town.
Service poor food was a joke
Good food, but much more expensive than it should be.
I got their pasta special for the evening but it turned out to be nothing special. The portions of vegetables to pasta were sparse but did appreciate the light use of sauce. Our waiter seemed nice enough be after someone else brought us our dinner, our main waiter or any other service individual, never checked back on us until we were completely finished. No dessert for us so we left unimpressed.
Your portions are much too small for the prices charged. The amount of beef on the carpaccio was skimpy and the scallops were three bites...tiny. My friends duck confit portions were so small that they thought that it had been split but was actually a full portion. They asked the waiter and confirmed it.
Had mussels and Cesar salad. The mussels dish was overpriced and very small. The red sauce was nothing special. Two of us had Cesar salad which was salty and one so salty it had to be returned. Service was very poor. Initially, the wrong appetizer was delivered to the table; mushroom dish instead of mussels and when initial servings were cleared, silverware was removed and not readily returned. Overall, not a good experience.
Gnocchi was like glue texture Flavor was good.
Pistachio Chicken was dry overcooked.
Sauce was good.
Not a good food experience. More attention to detail by the kitchen staff would have given you a top rating.
We have eaten here numerous times. The food is excellent and the happy hour allows for getting several smaller plates to share at a great price.
Food was excellent - though we only had entrees. Sat on the patio and we were neglected for service. Water was warmer than Luke warm - which we thought was kind of funny.. the warmer your water, the fancier the place.
For many years the best restaurant Santa Fe has to offer!
My wife and I always make sure we have at least one dinner at Il Piatto when we are in Santa Fe. This is the second time in the last 24 months that we have headed over to Il Piatto after enjoying a 4 pm Sunday Santa Fe Symphony concert (a less than 10 minute walk from the Lensic auditorium), and it provides a great atmosphere to share concert thoughts and experiences, in addition to authentic Italian cuisine and a fine Italian wine selection. A gem.
