We will give it another try. It was good, service was good but maybe we were just in and out too quickly. They have a great happy hour so will do that next time. I would still recommend it though.

We didn't have the best experience. We asked for bread when we placed our order. 20 minutes later we asked again. Then 10 minutes later our food arrived, but still no bread. Then later while eating our entrees, the bread arrived. But they never brought the roasted vegetables that we ordered. Food was rather expensive for the quantity. Expect to pay around $120 per couple including wine and dessert. There are better restaurants in Santa Fe.

Kudos to the hostess who kindly accommodated our reservation with an extra guest. The bartender, Xena, was great! A+ for the beef carpaccio appetizer. Unfortunately, from there, things went down a bit. Our waitress was scrambling to keep up. My entree was very slow arriving, and only moderately warm. Wine refill was delayed. Bummer when u are looking forward to complimenting the food with the wine and the appetizer is gone before wine arrives. Overall, a disappointing end to the evening.

Unreasonably priced, $15 for 3 normal sized mushrooms. The taste was almost like any other knock off Italian place. By far the worst dinning experience we’ve had while staying in Santa Fe. I got an “appetizer” sized pasta dish- it sure was an appetizer dish containing only six (6) pasta noodles in comparison to the, what seemed like, billions of tomatoes. The pasta itself was great, but the serving sizes where extremely small especially considering this is an Italian restaurant. We also ordered a chicken dish- the chicken was over cooked in parts- and the Italian desert custard. The custard itself was delicious but it was topped with some gnarly Marsala balsamic and had strawberry syrup- the kind used for an ice cream Sunday- which was just nasty. The staff was nice, although they seemed to be stretched a little thin. The atmosphere was cliche Italian as seen in literally any other Italian place. Overall, it’s worth missing this dinning option as it will only leave you hungry and disappointed in the end.

Some dishes were good, a couple disappointing. The "cellared" squash salad was excellent. What was billed as duck confit rillettes, however, seemed to have been made with sweet mayonnaise, rather than duck fat.

Everything was good except the table we sat at. Took a high top because all other tables were taken. The thing was one of those table tops on a barrel, located right in the doorway, and on top of that had a strong overhead light beaming down on one of the seats. Everything else was amazing tho

We’ve eaten at I’ll Piatto many times over the years. This meal was good but not great. Service was good but not exceptional. Maybe the chef and staff were getting weary at the end of restaurant week...

All was OK but could have been better.

Apparently, there was some drama in the kitchen the night we were there, or else they were just overwhelmed by the number of diners since it was Restaurant Week. We were served our appetizers very promptly, but had to wait quite a while for the entrees. The food was delicious, as always, although the bread pudding was more custard-y than the consistency of bread pudding. Andrew was a good waiter. All in all, a very nice experience.

My mom and I love this place. If you are coming in for Restaurant Week, make sure you make your reservations as quickly as the menus come out (in January). There is a reason this place books up quick. The food is delicious with generous portions.

My partner had the chicken mushroom soup; there was a large, ugly piece of limp skin in the unexceptional broth. Her parmigiana sandwich contained a dry and much over-fried (possibly left-over) chicken patty. Menu said it came with roasted peppers and onions. Came with no onions and chopped tomatoes instead of promised peppers, which she can't eat - sandwich was sent back - same over-fried patty and no onions, a few peppers, returned. My Branzino was good, as was my appetizer of scallops Rockefeller. My desert of "bread pudding" was sitting in an unappetizing mess of what looked like scrambled eggs; partner's panecotta was marginally ok. Service was excellent. I am surprised that restaurants strutting their stuff for Restaurant Week would serve such underwhelming dreck. Don't they want people to come back? We were expecting a lovely lunch in a restaurant we had not gone to before - it was a belated Valentine's gift to my partner, and we were both disappointed. This lunch cost me $65.00 including a generous tip. It wasn't worth half that.

We love Italian food and Il Piatto has always been a favorite. It has grown it the past years from one room packed with tables to two rooms. We were seated in the new room with faux exposed brick and other cheesy touches. We enjoyed most of our menu selections: Branzino, papperdelle, the seasonal salad, and the day's specials. The service was lousy. The server must have been disappointed that we weren't padding the check with wine and cocktails, because after we told him we were sticking with sparking water, he lost interest. The restaurant week special kept the price under $100 for 3 courses, Pellegrino, and coffees. I still tipped generously since it would have cost more under normal circumstances.

I have always enjoyed Il Piatto....the ambience is great and the service is wonderful. We went for Santa Fe Restaurant Week and the special menu was excellent! The freshness of the food with their use of the local farmers market and growers makes it special.

The pours seem small for the amount of money you pay for glass compared to other restaurants unless you are early enough for happy hour. Only complaint I have. The Happy Hour food offerings are wonderful.
