***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.

We had a wonderful dinner outside at Piatti. The hostess, Rosie, and our waiter, Ryan, could not have been kinder or more professional.

The food was fantastic from staters to dinner. My daughter loved her cheese pizza and the wild mushroom rotolo is simply amazing.

Highly recommended.

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.

This was our second visit to Piatti and we plan on coming back every time we are in La Joya. Service is EXCELLENT food is EXCELLENT. We were celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary and we were VERY impressed that they acknowledged it by having a personalized menu for the occasion. I have never seen this gesture before. Thank you, Piatti!!!

This is the first time my husband and I have been out since everything was shut down a few months ago. We didn’t really know what to expect. Wow, I’m so glad we made our first outing to piatti. These guys really handled everything so well, we almost didn’t notice anything was different or out of the norm. From the distancing of tables, to the way staff handled food, we were so impressed. Loved this place before, and love it even more now. Have so much respect for whoever owns and runs this restaurant and all the staff there who put in 110%. Thanks for creating a little getaway from all the stress.

The old great vibe is missing in this covid-environment, but food was great as usual. Paying for bread seems petty and slightly irritating, but service and employees were great and friendly.

Excited to find Piatti’s open. Food was amazing, as always. The ravioli with lemon cream sauce is a favorite, and perfect for summer. We also love the number of amazing non-alcoholic cocktails, on the menu. So nice to enjoy a meal at one of our favorite restaurants!

On the beach and looking for something upscale definitely worth a visit to Piatti. Our Osso Buco and Rissoto Milanese were a delicious. Great Caesar Salad to start with anchovies, fresh bread made in house. Attentive service and keen attention to detail. Solid wine list to compliment each entree.
