We love this restaurant! The food is excellent and never fails to please. Service and ambiance is top notch. Not the snooty staff we have come to expect at many of Santa Fe's finest dining establishment. Our waiter was very knowledgable & helpful about the wines.

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.

Go for the Happy Hour Special of half off wine by glass and appetizers. Entrees and desserts very good but way overpriced. We have been dining at Il Piatto for several years during our annual visit to Santa Fe and have noticed prices steadily increasing while entrée size shrinking. We miss the Happy Hour with the Price Fix menu that is no longer offered.

Il Piatto won't disappoint. It is one of the few restaurants open on Sunday. It has a wonderful menu and utilizes a lot of local foods. The wine list is really great and the prices are very fair for the wines. The overall tab is a little high for just a dinner out. they offer an option of full size entree or appetizer size. the appetizer size is very plentiful but priced like an entree.
The chef was a little heavy handed with salt the night we dined but it isn't always like that. However, the focaccia is very salty.

We were early and the place was pretty empty so it was no problem that we added two people to our reservation. The service started out good but as things got busier, the service decreased. By dessert it was a long wait. Also noise is really bad when they are busy. Go early for best experience.

I go to Il Piatto on a regular basis and love it. I always go between 4:30 and 6:00 when appetizers are half off and there are half orders of the entrees. They have an outstanding selection of wines at a reduced price during this time too. It's a great a value overall plus the service is excellent, always knowledgeable and attentive. I have my favorites. I usually get one of the soups: the Gazpacho (seasonal) or the Mushroom Bisque are great. The Caesar salad is one of the best in town. I love the New Mexico Beef Carpaccio and Mary's Organic Roast Chicken. And, then there's dessert. All of the desserts are fantastic. My favorite, hands down, is the zabaglione but the chocolate mouse is as good as it gets as is the tiramisu. I also especially like that everything is made in house, they source from local farmers and have organic options. Overall, it's a great experience for a great price. It's a favorite of mine and other locals.

We had a wonderful dinner at Il Piatto. The atmosphere was so romantic and peaceful on the night that we were there. The food was very fresh and beautifully presented. Our server was from Minnesota, as are we, and we had a great time talking with her. She provided expert service and recommendations. This was one of our favorite place we ate in our nine nights in Santa Fe.

Very expensive for pasta. Then the half size dinner left us hungry at the end. The glassware and table ware were not clean. The space was very dark and I didn’t want to venture to the ladies room for fear of what it might look like.

We selected Il Piatto Italian Farmhouse Kitchen based on online reviews, location and menu. Wow! The happy hour menu was right sized portions of pasta dishes and half price appetizers. In addition there was a value selection of good wines. Server was friendly, informative and attentive. I enjoyed the duck ragu with paparadelle. My husband had a delicious frutti de Mar; we started with carpaccio and finished with apple strudel. Locally accessed ingredients, pleasant atmosphere !
