    We ordered a few dishes. We ordered the starting bread (Ciabatta Demi-loft) which wasn’t complimentary however still very good. We then ordered the two appetizers beef carpaccio and the bruschetta which were both great. We then order two entrees of cannelloni and cavatappi. The cannelloni is fantastic. The serving size was good but it was so good I could have ordered another one. Would not recommend the cavatappi, Italian sausage. It sounded good but the meat and pasta were very simple border line bland. I would also recommend sitting outside. The inside is nice but it is a bit loud and could be a little tight especially for a table of 2. I still would highly recommend going here!

    Food as always was terrific. The service was not what I am used to. We had a party of several at seven pm. Restaurant was packed. Difficult getting drinks, but it all worked out. Too loud for the elders in our group, but still a shoe in for best food for the dollar in La Jolla.

    Very much enjoyed dining at Piatti and would definitely go back. The food was very good, however, 3 of us got lasagna and had to send it back as it was barely warm. Once returned, it was great! The server was delightful and the ambiance is very pleasant.

    Magical ambiance in the outdoor courtyard for dinner! The tree is magnificent and with the heater on, it was the perfect temp (but the ladies at the table next to us were too warm and asked for it to be turned off rather than taking off their jackets…oh well :). We shared the grilled Romaine salad with proscioutto (amazing! Highly recommended), the Mushroom Rotolo and the Shrimp Papardelle. The rotolo was excellent; but honestly I wasn’t thrilled with the papardelle as the sauce was the consistency of broth…and a little bland for my personal taste. But we still had a lovely experience; and are huge fans of Piatti. We were generously served a special birthday tiramisu with a candle for my friend’s birthday (perfect for sharing between the two of us) and truly enjoyed our evening. (My husband and I always love their Caeser salad, the Cavatapi and their lasagna…and I kind of wished I’d stuck with my old standby fave). Of course, we’ll be back though; and we are so glad they’ve weathered the challenges of recent years that so many of our businesses haven’t. Thanks for a great evening, Piatti’s! We love you!

    As always … as you enter the restaurant the scent of the food cooking is a welcome embrace ! The lighting is perfect. Our reservation was ready. We were seated within a few moments and our waiter was pleasant , friendly, professional and available as we needed him! There were four of us and all meals were outstanding- appetizers as well. The wine list was special ! Enjoyed this too. :) It feels special whenever you can dine at Piatti’s. I love bringing my friends from out of town. They are always impressed! Thank you !!
