***WE ARE OPEN FOR TAKE OUT. PLEASE CALL THE RESTAURANT FOR PATIO DINING AVAILABILITY***

A tradition to many La Jollans, this Italian bistro serves fresh authentic regional Italian cuisine. A landmark Ficus tree takes up one corner of their very popular patio, but the bright and cheerful dining room is delightful during the day or on those chilly evenings when it’s too cold to sit outside. The menu is presented in an innovative and creative fashion offering a wide variety of pastas, pizza and grilled items. In addition, you may find many vegetarian and health conscious dishes. Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday and includes specialties such as Uovo Benedetto (Eggs Benefits served on grilled polenta with basil hollandaise) along with omelets and breakfast pizzas.

Ordered a bottle of red wine and it was warm when dropped off. Server didn’t have another so she had to chill it with an ice bucket placing it on the floor.
Food was ok... over seasoned. Had the taste of the food in our mouths all day.

In our current environment Piatti is taking the Covid VERY seriously. So sad to see so few tables but there are doing what is necessary, unlike other places. I was hesitant to go. We sat outside in the front and there were only two other tables being used. I appreciate them being responsible.

The most difficult thing about going to Piatti is deciding what to order,
as they have so many great items on the menu. My food was great as
usual and tried a few bites of several of my companions' food, at
it was all unique and flavorful. Can't wait to return.
