    Being from Raleigh, we were shocked at what a great value this meal offered. Prices lower than in NC and excellent quality. Great cocktails and food. Initially they tried to put us in a back room, the restaurant manager had an attitude about moving us but they did it anyway. After that, everything was perfect!

    Poor service, our server disappeared for almost our whole dinner other than taking orders. Never filled up our water. Cappuccino came out completely cold, asked for sugar and never gotten it until we already drank the whole cup of coffee.

    Food, quality and service was exceptional. The only issue we came across was being seated by a large group sho became loud and not very conscious of other customers. We attended during restaurant week and are really glad we came here! The service was quick, attentive, and professional.

    Very good food and environment, although the service was a little slow and my client and I were seated at the worst table in the restaurant despite the availability of other tables. I didn't protest so as not to start out my business lunch with lightweight drama. Otherwise, great spot for a lunch meeting.

    Went for dinner and had the an ample sized meal With a bottle of wine for a great price. The lamb was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. Would definitely recommend this dish We also had a pasta tossed in truffle oil that was to die for. The calamari was just okay. I would recommend this place and I would return

    The service was fantastic, our waiter and all the staff were very attentive and helpful. Our drinks and appetizers were brought out to us impressively fast. Unfortunately the Arancini were lukewarm at best but otherwise very flavorful. The chicken parmigiana was delicious but the pasta serving was not nearly enough. The old fashioned was great but the Negronis tasted like Vicks NyQuil.

    We went for New Year’s Eve dinner and had their pre fixe menu which was four courses. Overall the food was good and the price was amazing for the amount of food that we got, the only critique about the food that I had was that the eggplant parmigiana was stacked like lasagna so it was super soggy but the flavor was good. Otherwise the risotto balls, gnocchi Gorgonzola, limoncello panna cotta and the tiramisu were delicious! Service was amazing and food came out fast and hot.

    the gnocchi was unique; made from ricotta. red sauce on another dish was outstanding. it was New Year's Eve fixed-price menu; amazing value four courses for $80. my mixed drink was a bust however. I asked for it not too sweet and it was overwhelmingly syrupy

    We had a very nice waiter. Food is over priced and they should definitely improve on the cooking time of pasta and rice considering they are in the market as an Italian restaurant.

    Had a wonderful time having a Christmas dinner with my family and I. We ordered the Chicken Parm, the Arugula salad and the Salmon with Polenta. We also ordered a The Godfather drink and it really elevated the night! The service was fantastic and there was easy street parking at K Street (thanks to the receptionist who gave us the tip at the restaurant). Overall, would 110% go back and bring more friends and family there!

    Perfect choice for Christmas lunch! The hot buttered rum was delicious, along with appetizer, salad, pasta and dessert...we overindulged a little and don't regret a bite. Actually we took half our mains home so we would have room for dessert. The chef came out herself to clarify a little request in our part which was greatly appreciated.

    We had a really good time here. We were a party of 9 with 4 kids. We were happy to find a place that would let us make an indoor reservation with short notice during the holidays for a large party. I was a little nervous walking in because it was quiet (still early in the evening) and we had kids, but we didn’t seem to cause a disruption. I was pleased to see we had a nice table set off in its own nook and it was ready when we arrived early. Everyone was friendly and the food was good. A couple of people said their protein seemed overcooked. It was on the more well cooked side than other nice restaurants, but we also noticed the menu was more affordable than many places in DC. The overall value was good, and the ambience was very nice. Overall we were glad we went as Il Piatto was exactly what we wanted for our occasion.

    Food and drinks were excellent. The spinach ravioli and chicken parm were delicious. Service was only ok. Server was not very attentive and never came back to see if the food was prepared to our liking nor did he offer ground pepper or fresh grated cheese. We had to ask for the cheese and it arrived after 3/4 of the entree had beeb eaten. Would definitely return but hopefully the service will be better on our next visit.
