I really enjoyed my food but my mom didn’t really like hers. And it was her birthday. Also, the restaurant was very warm.
We had a wonderful dinner at Il Piatto on Saturday night. Lovely ambiance and great food. We tried the gazpacho, the scallops rockefeller, the branzino and a couple of the specials. All were outstanding. Would highly recommend!!
I used to be satisfied with the half orders of pasta but they seem to have gotten smaller so will order full orders from now on.
Wrong dish was brought out but the waiter did not come back to asked us how the food was.
Too much garlic in everything!
Sommelier suggested one specific vintage of wine and then brought us the other vintage and when we brought it up was unapologetic and couldn’t care about her mistake Then they brought the wrong food to the table and it was cold when they corrected the issue Eat here a lot and this might make me not return especially the sommelier
Hard to describe cuisine offered, a mix of many types. Among the four dinners one felt their chicken dish was outstanding while two were not impressed with their choices, the fourth felt the spaghetti Bolognese was good but not quite the way they like it best. Server was very helpful and restaurant had our reservation ready for seating when we arrived.
We are part time Santa Fe residents and we love eating at Il Piatto. Excellent location too
Great location, food and service. Wednesdays half off on bottles of wine is such a nice touch, great way to try new wines. The server was excellent and the homemade pasta was amazing.
I felt like I was in Italy, the old building is so beautiful, can't wait to return on my next trip to Santa Fe.
Great Santa Fe location. Reliable service and high food quality over 3 dinners there, over past 3 years. Wednesday nights = ½ price on all bottles of wine,.
Service was abysmal. We were initially seated under a speaker that wasn’t working properly. It just sent out a loud humming noise that was very loud. When we asked to be reseated it was as if we had disappeared. No waiter showed up at our new table for 15 minutes. It took another 10 minutes to get some bread. Dinner arrived almost an hour after we did. The restaurant was not busy—just sheer indifference on the part of the staff. Right after we asked for our check the waitress plunked down two glasses of wine that we hadn’t ordered with no explanation. One can only presume that it was supposed to compensate for the poor service, but even that wasn’t done well.
The service was very slow. The temperature was uncomfortably warm. The food was fine but other Italian restaurants in Santa Fe have better food.
The service was a little erratic as we had ordered appetizers which did not come to our table before the main courses were served. The food was very good.
Il Piatto is a fabulous restaurant. The food is excellent. The service and management is outstanding. They really create a lovely environment and are very nice and professional. Just like dining in Italy. They are continually creating new and interesting dishes. Their Happy Hour is a great value! Do not miss this place while visiting Santa Fe or come in often if you live in town. Wonderful!!
The food and service was excellent, HOWEVER, they MUST revise their menu. if you are Gluten-Free or have celiac disease their misprint can be highly dangerous! we had one member of our party who inquired about one entree even though it was noted on the menu with "GF" and after having eaten a portion knew something was wrong and had to immediately leave. Upon inquiring, we were told by the manager that it was indeed a mistake and NOT gluten-free. They did not charge for her meal but it still caused some discomfort since only a small portion was consumed. We just want to make sure this does not happen to anyone else because everything else was excellent and we will come back!
The dining room was lovely, cool, quiet. The service was fine. The wine was also good, particularly the glass of Chianti I had. The food? Overpriced and underwhelming. My wife had a $30 bowl of gnocchi. She ate perhaps a third, the rest we had for lunch next day. They were tender and tasty, but it was $30 pasta. I ordered the New Mexico strip steak pizziola, medium rare. It was much closer to medium, very little pink. Ok, that will happen, but at $36 I expect a tender, flavorful piece of meat. It was neither, and even a bit gristly. Rather disappointing. I don’t have steak often, but when I order it in an upscale place like this it better be good. If we lived here, I probably wouldn’t return. Too many other choices in Santa Fe for dinner.
Excellent service and food. Gazpacho was divine as was presentation of all dishes.
We continue to be Amazed by the outstanding dinner which we enjoyed tonight and every time we have had the pleasure of dining at II Piatto. Service was excellent and we were so pleased with all the selections available. Caesar Salad, Gorgonzola and walnut Ravioli, Bay Scallops, Capaletti Classico. Truly at delightful evening
We have dined at Il Piatto numerous times and love the restaurant. This time we took good friends from out of town or the happy hour prior to going to the music in the plaza. Again good food but service was slow (perhaps a big group from the other room). Also the bill came and had three items which were at hPpy hour 1/2 off marked at full price. After we caught the issue he “corrected” the bill but one of the three was still wrong. It was a real shame as the service and bill ruined the dinner effect for our friends. They wondered why we liked the restaurant.
I found all the food extremely salty. I realise that steak needs salt. But the fries and spinach were also oversalted. You can’t take the salt away!
Staff (Bridie?Britney?) were lovely.
Whenever friends are in town, New Mexican food is a must. This time these friends had their fill and wanted something, something that would include wine. Having eaten here recently for a meeting, and having had dinner here once or twice before, I had been impressed with everything about Il Piatto. So this is where we went. It is going to stay on my list of go-to restaurants in Santa Fe, and our friends were delighted and vowed to return. The food is very good, and with a varied and interesting menu that is different here in the City Different. The wine list is good, with several good bottles under $60.
We had an early dinner and ordered the Pappardelle with Duck Ragu which was delicious. We ordered the smaller serving which was smaller than we expected. The extremely small bowl made it somewhat difficult to eat. We enjoyed the dinner, but next time we will order the larger serving. Our server did a great job.
Delicious food, cozy atmosphere, exceptional staff. We will definitely go back!
The food was absolutely superb, but the noise level made the dining experience unfavorable. Everyone seem to think they had to “talk over” everyone around them. With the small, intimate dining area, I left the restaurant exhausted.
Good food, as always, with choices for everyone. Pasta and chicken were quite wonderful.
Had a great lunch using the 3 course menu option which worked out great for my wife and I, my daughter had a main from the kids menu. We all had chicken for main course which was supper succulent. Starters and deserts were fantastic and all washed down with a reasonably priced wine by the glass. It was the best meal we had in Santa Fe on our week long trip. Thanks
Enjoyed the meal and dessert! Wine and beer were awesome, too.
The trout was delicious, and the wine really complimented the trout. Friends found the gazpacho, which contained heirloom tomatoes, perfect for an appetizer. The pumpkin ravioli were fantastic. Anthony, our waiter was helpful and knowledgeable.
My wife ordered Lamb, medium rare +. Came out pretty much well done. I had linguine with clams. Pasta was not great, clams not much better. Server was Excellent and it was half price wine Wednesday which helped, but unlikely to be back and we live in Santa Fe so were looking forward to trying this place.
The stuffed mushroom appetizer was delicious, and the focaccia was wonderful to soak up the sauce.
Andre was genial and knowledgeable and knew not to interrupt when we were deep in conversation.
A lovely experience I can recommend!
Had not been before but menu looked interesting and it was close to where we were staying. The waiter had too many tables in our opinion and service was a bit slow but pleasant. The Caesar salad and bread were delicious as were our pasta entrees. We will definitely return next visit.
Had the rabbit from the seasonal menu and it was phenomenal! Thank you to Sean for his wine recommendation! Can’t wait until I’m in Santa Fe again and can have another great meal at Il Piatto!
The waiter seemed to have too many tables to attend to. I had indicated on the OpenTable reservation system that it was an anniversary. That evidently wasn’t noticed by the restaurant. It was no big deal - but it could have been.
Love the new seasonal menu! The cold pea soup was so delicious!
We loved the food and atmosphere!
Defiantly will be back and try other delicious looking dishes....
First time but very pleased!!!!!
Great food, you can tell they make the pasta in house. I sat on the patio, had an excellent dinner of salad and pumpkin ravioli.
This dinner was mostly to celebrate my mom’s birthday. We were in Santa Fe for a few days of vacation and wanted some place for Italian because that is usually our family tradition for celebrating birthdays. We were not disappointed! The food from appetizer to dessert was absolutely delicious. The entrees has great flavor and were prepared so well. Our waiter was great. He had great suggestions for wine, was attentive, and made a deal out of my mom’s birthday! Overall we would definitely go back the next time we visit the city.
The crab asparagus appetizer was horrible. It’s all claws no meat and expensive. The eggplant parmigiana was filled with something mysterious!b
My wife and I had the linguine and clams which was the most bland pasta dish I've ever had! It was really bad and I hate to complain but I would not recommend it. No flavor what so ever!!! The sever was spread out too thin and was in the weeds the whole time. He needed a busser or something! It was a bad night there and hopeful that's all it was because I recommended Il Piatto to Santa Fe visitors all the time....
Flavorful preparations of good Italian food with capable service. Prices surprisingly on the high side for this type of place.
Wine and beer only. Enjoyed the pasta bolognese.
il Piatto has new menu items and they're great. I had the pot pie appetizer with soft shell crab. Delicious! Also, the new special wedge salad was scrumptious. And, as always, the gazpacho was wonderful. We also had great service from a friendly staff. Thank you, il Piatto!
