Always consistently good at Piatti. Crab Benedict’s all around and everyone very happy. Great service, friendly and professional. They never forget ANYTHING. Smooth, seamless and genial—really helps make a Piatti experience special. Know we can count on Piatti, so we keep going there!

Waited nested to the hostess for 23 min past our reservation time. They seated several people who walked in after us...not sure why. Seemed odd.

Great food.

We had a lovely time and felt very special by the staff. It was our 43rd Anniversary dinner date and the food and ambiance were awesome. The dessert Cream brulet was free.

The food and service were great. Ambiance is also very good I felt that it was a bit expensive for what we got. I'm sure the location plays a part in that. I do recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

Went to our favorite restaurant and had another great meal. I always order a Lemon Drop and it is always so delicious. My daughter ordered from the dairy free menu and she loved the pasta with vegetables she had. I had the Mary’s half chicken which was delicious. My husband had the meatloaf and said it was very good. We will keep coming back for sure.

I work for a large corporate and we often have events held at Piatti. On my last visit, we brought 2 visitors from Colombia. The waiter asked where they were from and made a very inappropriate remark: “I’ve heard about Colombia, I watch Narcos”, referring to the Netflix series about drug cartel. Awkward.
The visitors began explaining that Pablo Escobar was a dark stain in their history, but the country has come a long way ever since. We wished they didn’t have to go through this embarrassment.
On the meal service: I am vegan and allergic to dairy. I ordered veggie pizza with no cheese. The waiter made another strange remark, “well, it’s not a pizza, then”. I responded, “it is to me”, and proceeded to order. He was very arrogant. He added I would be “charged accordingly” for the extra onions.
When the food arrived, one of the visitors didn’t receive his meal. Mistakes happen, but the waiter justified as “because your vegan ‘pizza’ was too complicated to explain to the chef’. The waiter blamed me.
We asked for the bill, and we all had our credit cards ready to pay. The waiter never returned to the table to retrieve the credit cards, so we stood up and walked to the front, to look for him. It was a business meal, we wanted to split the cost. One of the credit cards would pay for 2 parts – we provided the instruction, but we were completely ignored. The credit cards were split incorrectly. It was another awkward moment and too uncomfortable to return the credit cards for correction. We just left it as-is.
The lunch turned out to be a 2-hour lunch due to the poor service.
We all walked out of the restaurant apologizing to our visitors for the inappropriate comment, the forgotten order, the delay in collecting the check and the wrong amounts in our credit cards. Very embarrassing!

One of my favorite restaurants for lunch. Favorite dish crispy brussels sprouts followed by their calamari fritte. Great selection of both food and wine. Good place to linger for any reason.

We brought out of town friends here. Our request on Open Table was for a booth and we were seated in one of our favorite areas in a comfortable booth. The food is always delicious and the menu offers varied dishes. Our server was very attentive and all the staff is friendly and helpful.
A great place for lunch or dinner in The Livery Danville.

Our craving for Italian food and eating outside led us back here. That said, it was a bit too cool for outside.
Service was top shelf. Food was good, bread was awesome. We brought a bottle of red and had a slow meal. Of course at 3:30 there are few others around, but that was nice.

It was both of our 75th birthdays, and we couldn't have had a lovelier time. The service was attentive but not overwhelming (including a quick picture for our kids), and the food was its usual yummy. The tiramisu topped it off perfectly.

Had a great lunch. My salmon was delicious. The other guests enjoyed their lunch as well. The only negative comment I heard was that there should have been more raviolis on the (spinach and lemon cream) plate; she stated that it was an appetizer; not a lunch portion. She also stated that the lunch entree should have a green salad or something more than 5 raviolis on a plate. That was not good value in her estimation and I tend to agree. Maybe you can up the raviolis with a side dish.....

Food is always quite good and there is always a variety to satisfy the palate of everyone in a group. Service is attentive as always. It can be noisy inside, especially in the back area so the soft spoken people in your group may struggle to be heard

We ordered pomegranate cosmos and they were very good. The 3 of us, all ladies, decided to do family style and shared a few things. The brussel sprouts with bleu cheese salad was tasty and we enjoyed every last morsel. The spinach ravioli had a light cream sauce and was plenty to share. The ling cod filet was perfectly moist and a perfect healthy choice! Our waiter was very patient and checked on us several times and he understood how to deal with a table of ladies who kept getting side tracked with conversation and forgetting to look at the menu. And to top it off, he overheard our conversation that it was my birthday and surprised me with a candle in a complimentary tiramisu!! A great time at Piatti!

Always good, the bread and spicy dipping oil is a great start. Kids love the build your own pizza. Most of the staff are very friendly. The food is a reasonable value but the drinks and wine are a bit overpriced.

Brussel Sprout Salad very rich.
Arugula Salad little bland. Could use another piece of breaded Goat Cheese to enhance flavor.

Swordfish was a little overseasoned (salty) and a little dry in the center.

Overall, it was very good combined with the atmosphere.


The Lemon Ravioli is the BEST!

As always... Another memorable time at Piatti in Danville! This time it was our mom’s 93rd birthday! From the personalized menu, to the eggs Benedict, from the champagne to the tiramisu... it’s always a fun time. Never hurried, always pampered! Our mom felt like a million dollars on her special day! The food is always delicious & we’ve tried everything from the chicken sandwich to the salmon, the various pizzas & homemade muffins...
