We love to travel, and to eat! We have found that our most enjoyable and memorable dining experiences have been where we were able to order many small plates with just a few perfect bites of food, that we could share. Sharing food and experiences together made our connections to one another as a family stronger and more meaningful.
Piattini means "small plates" in Italian. Our fabulous creations are crafted from the finest, freshest ingredients; Organic, farm-raised, and locally sourced. We offer gluten- free options for 90% of our menus.
Food and drink brings people together, which brings community together. We hope that Piattini will become a favorite neighborhood spot in which community can gather and enjoy delicious meals, share some wine and savor good company.
It's a great restaurant! If you are in Albuquerque, you should go!
Our recent visit to Piatanzi proved once again that this restaurant is a great one for dining with friends. While the ambiance has a nice urban vibe, they somehow manage to temper the noise level, allowing for easily heard conversation. We were a bit disappointed with a too dry chicken parmigiana for one of us, but the food was generally quite good, the service excellent, and the prices quite reasonable.
The service this time around was inattentive. Maybe the chef can learn to prepare a vegetarian special one in a while.
Enjoyed the service and food at Piatanzi. Menu has many offerings and has a nice atmosphere.
Dining at Piatanzi is always delightful. Our wait staff made it even better this time; the recommended wine (Bordeaux blanc) was an excellent choice at a great price point. Getting a recommendation from someone knowledgeable made a huge difference.
As usual, this was an enjoyable luncheon experience.
Deliciously fresh entree’s! We look forward to dining here again! Excellent service!
We had an exceptionally pleasant evening. Faron, the waitress, was great even though she was definitely super busy. She was pleasant, professional and patient and we all appreciated it. The food was good and I have already recommended this nice place to several friends.
Piatanzi was a let down, as the gluten free pizza I ordered was served to me yet the dough was raw. The mozzarella was slathered on to perhaps hide the raw crust, and it tasted like rubber. I told the server about the uncooked crust, and he took it back for the kitchen to remake it. The second pizza came out, again with massive amounts of cheese on it, but the crust was fully cooked. Flavor was lacking, and the rubbery cheese overpowered any hint of marinara, basil, garlic, or the green chile I got on my pizza. The server brought the bill and explained that he did not charge for the gluten free pizza. After reviewing the bill, there was still a charge for the gluten free pizza with green chile. When I asked about it (only because he had said he didn't charge for it), he stated that he didn't charge for the first pizza. The one that was served raw. That, and the rubbery mozzarella, left a bad taste in my mouth.
Celebrated a B.D.
Perfect!!! In every way!!
Very good food with gluten free options. Our wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very responsive.
Great experience from the moment we got there until we left. Good off street parking, easy in and out. Very friendly and efficient wait staff. Food was excellent and a good value.
Excellent “homemade” food.
Food was good and tasty. Not much choice for vegetarian/vegan or gluten sensitive guests. Ambience could have been better.
The food was simply excellent, the wine perfect, the service casual and fine.
Nice and quiet on this particular evening. We found both the service and food good; however, a bit pricey for the food offerings.
Definitely recommend!! Good was great and large enough portions to share!
From the moment we walked in, great service. The wine was superb. The salad and entree were off the charts, excellent pesto sauce very flavorful.
We were traveling through and just happened to pick this restaurant based on great reviews, a real gem.
Will be back on our return trip.
Highly recommend, excellent Italian cuisine.
This is now our go-to neighborhood restaurant. The food and service are Excellent.
Another excellent meal at Piatanzi.....always reliable.
Our experience here was fantastic! I took my boyfriend out for his birthday, so we went all out. From the wine, to the appetizer (mussels - so good!), to our entrees, to the dessert (I loved the tiramisu), to the cappuccino we shared, and to even the BREAD (haha), all of it was incredible. The service we received was stellar too. Great date night spot! I highly recommend. We'll be back.
Fair, the menu has been expanded and there are a lot of choices. I had clams with pasta and my partner had the shrimp with pasta (they called it scampi, but it wasn't). Not bad, but a bit un-inspired.
We love this casual neighborhood Italian restaurant where the pizza, pastas, and appetizers are very good. The full entrees are undoubtedly wonderful also, but we tend to like smaller plates and have not ever been disappointed.
One my favorite things about Piatanzi is its price points, especially for wine. Rather than starting at charging double for a bottle, this place seems to truly value having you accompany a well-prepared, tasty meal with a very good bottle of wine, and not gouging the patrons. The noise level can be quite loud here if you choose to dine at 7:15 or earlier, but it subdues somewhat after 7:45, probably owing to how it's tucked away in a quiet, kinda affluent neighborhood. The truffle oil fries are very simple, but they are hot, crisp, and pretty addicting. If you're craving pizza, theirs are large and filling. Generally everything on the menu is very good though on this night, the carbonnara seemed to underwhelm my partner. All in all, I am happy Piatanzi has been nearby for about a decade.
Food was not very good. Ambiance and service were nothing special. Very pricey!
Piatanzi is consistently good with its seasonal specials, a good wine collection, and service.
I always enjoyed dining at Piatanzi, and I was more impressed this time around by the owners' professionalism and service. Fantastic dishes (including seasonal plates), great service, and a fine place to do business lunch or dinner. This is a local gem that deserves a visit.
I live close by and is very handy to walking distance and the food was great.
Always a special meal, whether for a celebratory reason or daily life.
This was our first time at this restaurant and we were very impressed with the service, food and ambience. Four of us had a variety of appetizers (I would go back JUST for the roasted brussel sprouts!), followed by pasta, chicken. One of our party did not care for her wine choice, and the waiter, then manager were prompt to suggest alternatives until she was pleased. We were delighted with the food -- and there was plenty of it which we took home. Amazingly delicious even reheated!
The restaurant looks newly built and has a modern upscale vibe, although not snobby at all. We are looking forward to returning and trying more dishes.
Found this restaurant on my GF app when I was visiting Albuquerque - went there for lunch and ended up taking family and friends there for dinner the next night. Everything was fantastic from the service to the food.
This was our first time here. The service was great right from the start! They were good about asking if we needed to be out by a certain time for a show (we did!) The portion size was decent so we could share an entree (lasagna bolognese), got our own salads (misto very large) and shared a dessert (chocolate flourless torte with whipped cream and strawberries). Everything, including the wine was excellent. We would highly recommend this restaurant!
Had a lovely evening last Friday with good food and a nice bottle of Malbec. Our waiter got us served and presented the bill in plenty of time to make a oerfornance - nothing was rushed
I recommend it all the time and take visiting friends and family there all the time. I live in the neighborhood and am so delighted we have a reliable white tablecloth restaurant just up the street as it were. Keep it up.
Inattentive service. The waiter wasn't very good, which is uncommon for this restaurant.
Great place to meet friends for a casual and quality dinner out!
A great place for all occasions with a wonderful wine selection and great and knowledgeable staff!
Consistently fantastic dishes and ambience for business or personal dining. The restaurant is a gem.
Great food!! Great place for couples
