It was a perfect experience from the food to the ambiance, to the service to the location. It was truly an experience we will never forget and for sure won’t be the last.
Loved the outdoor patio with heat lamps!
The food was watery and this was true across the board. We had the meatloaf, the linguine with seafood and the catch of the day, and the sweetbread veal. The sweetbread was our favorite but even that was mediocre. Each could have benefited from better spices or just any addition to the taste. We will not be going back and do not recommend it.
Amazing experience!! One of the best in the La Jolla area!
For our anniversary. Food and location is great. We get unlucky with the waiter’s more often than not. There was a toothpick in the lasagna but they explained it was for cooking purposes and comped the dish.
We loved our dinner at Piatti. It was full inside so we were given a lovely spot with a heater next to it outside in the garden where it was quiet and lovely. Our meal and service were excellent. Even with a full restaurant inside, we were well attended to.
I love Piatti's and this time did not disappoint. The food was delicious as always, served hot and in a consistent and organized manner. We weren't rushed but we didn't have to wait too long either.
It was just ok......pleasant waiter, noisy, food ho-hum
Always top notch food and value for money as well. Would recommend to anyone who is in the area.
We enjoyed all the food. Our waiter was attentive and helped us with out choices. The veal lemon picatta is amazing.
I love the roasted olives.
For dessert The tiramisu is wonderful
Oh and the afogatto is delicious
We really enjoy Piatti's - it's close to where we live and the food and service are always good. We are often there with large groups and the servers never disappoint. It is VERY loud when it's full (and it's usually full). And the parking is tough. But I always recommend it to friends because you know you will get a good meal.
Piatti has always been our ‘go to’ Italian restaurant in La Jolla. Although their salmon pasta special was wonderful, the spaghetti dish was not good. The noodles were undercooked and the meatballs were sub par. Not what we expect from this restaurant.
Food and service were great!
Great food and good service too! :)
Good date spot
We took out-of-town friends for dinner on a Friday night. I walked away very embarrassed. The service was terrible - had to hunt down the server to place and order, and it went downhill from there. The noise was bad - it was difficult to have a conversation. The food was very disappointing. The only food that was really enjoyable was the bread. The food was served lukewarm and really wasn't that interesting. After trying it at least 4 times, we won't be back.
The service staff was a bit pushy as to wanting us to order and moved plates with food still remaining. Additionally, my wife had asked to box her remaining portion to take home and we never was given it in a to go box. We assume they may have thrown it out. Somewhat disappointed for my 51st birthday.
Were in town for a long weekend and birthday celebration with friends. We were able to sit outside in the courtyard which was much quieter and more pleasant surroundings. Our waiter was friendly and gave good recommendations for our meals. We had birthday dessert compliments of Piattis. I would recommend this to anyone in Lajolla.
Great food, service & ambiance 😉
Loved the atmosphere
Amazing Italian food by the beach and they treated us to the best tiramisu ever tasted for our 5th anniversary!
Local favorite! Always a good choice for dinner and a stroll.
Great food and service. this is a great alternative to going downtown La Jolla.
Bread and oil mix outstanding. Eggplant appie best ever. Pizza very good. Seafood linguini overcooked and lacking in flavour
Bad night. Food was mediocre and I usually love the food there.
Awesome food and service. Every time we come to La Jolla we make sure we stop in for dinner!
Outstanding service! It was my birthday and they printed Happy Birthday with balloons on all of our menus; so cute!
Awesome dinner. Tim was our server. Best waiter we have ever had!!!
Out table was surrounded by a lot of noise from the kitchen service area directly behind our table of 6. Made the reservation several weeks ahead and expected a better location within restaurant!
They were so kind to have a personal menu that said “Happy Anniversary” which was so cool! Food was also amazing
My favorite place to have dinner
We went to this restaurant twice while in La Jolla shores. Of the restaurants on the street this one was the most elegant. We had a delightful experience both times.
Amazing place we come back to all the time!!
We have been coming here for over 20 years and I must share with you all that they are very consistent in their excellent service, food and everything else they do for the guests that eat at Piatti.
This is a must try if you have not already....you will not be disappointed.
I was very happy that they had some delicious vegan options on the menu.
I came to this restaurant thinking I was going to spend $100. I ordered an appetizer and two entres and was very surprised when my bill was only $60. The food is amazing and is a little different from your normal Italian restaurant.
My absolute favorite contemporary Italian restaurant in SD!
I’m so glad that we found this place, everything was just perfect!!!
Love this restaurant. We love it every time.
Food is amazing and they always take such good care of you.
The past two times we have wound up with a table in the bar area, don't love that. A little too noisy and enclosed.
