Piatanzi is the creation of husband and wife team, Pete and Maggie Lukes.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

A terrific experience. They have a large, Italian-centric menu that covers most of the bases and a wine list that does the same. My wife and I had a late dinner at Piatanzi on New Year's Eve and it was perfect. One of the very best restaurants in New Mexico.

We went in on New year's Eve with our 6 month old. Wasn't too dark or lit, no noise, and while bistro seating normally bothers me, it wasn't a problem here. Our server, Jessica, was kind and knowledgeable. We ordered the polenta and grilled artichokes for appetizers and they were both amazing. The caprese salad really wasn't great, but this isn't the first place we've experienced that buffalo mozzarella and burrata don't really exist in New Mexico... and that's okay. We ordered a margarita pizza and fettuccine with green chilis and had to get them to go. Neither was good, honestly, but the appetizers were and the ambiance was and the service was great.

This Saturday night was not very busy, at least until the after-Philharmonic crowd arrived. Service was very prompt and the food excellent. My wife had the pork tenderloin special with risotto, and I had the lamb ragout special. We shared a generous Caprese salad and a dessert with coffee. The wine list was excellent, fairly extensive and reasonably priced, and much superior to the seriously out-of-date list on their website.
We look forward to returning.
