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.

Food was ok, unfortunately service left a lot to desire for. We were sitted and never asked if we wanted to drink something, they just brought water and most water. I had to ask the waiter 3 times for a glass of wine. etc etc etc.

Went here based on Yelp reviews. We were staying in the neighborhood and I wanted to find a nice, romantic spot with great food. Piatti fit the bill perfectly. We sat inside in the main dining area. The ambiance was cozy. It was around 8 p.m. on a Sunday and there were a lot of diners but tables available. The patio, despite it being a cool night, was full. The waitress was friendly and professional and gave us suggestions and as much time as we needed with our menus. My fiance is a vegetarian and had no problem finding vegetarian options, including the tasty cauliflower and risotto cakes. I had an excellent carpccio, and linguini with seafood. Both were delicious with very fresh ingredients. Pasta was al dente and seafood cooked perfectly. They brought over a very good tiramisu with a candle (it was my fiance's birthday dinner) on the house. All in all, a great dining experience. Definitely recommend if you are staying in La Jolla Shores (or nearby). We'll be back!

We have visited this restaurant many times. It's a 16 mile drive for us but well worth it. Never disappointed.

Our favorite place in La Jolla! We drive down from Orange County periodically for an overnight getaway and without fail, we go to Piatti for dinner. We look forward to it between trips. Food is amazing. Ambiance is great! Wish it was down the street from my house so I could eat pasta everyday!
