Always a good "go to" for business lunch or dinner. Good quantity of food, service, ambience and value. The right balance of everything.

Relatively quiet though many tables were still occupied at 8:30pm.
Fresh sourdough bread. Pasta was al dente and sauces were tasty and flavorful.
Definitely plan to go there again soon.
Dishes: asparagus soup, pasta bolognese, venison pappardelle.

The experience at Piatti's was very good. Booking the table right from their web site was convenient. Noise level is little high for the business meal setting. For business meal or celebrations type, it will be OK. Outside seating could be preferred for lower noise.

Food is very good. service is excellent. Their bread and the signature dip is always a nice thing to start with and is very tasty.

We have been to Piatti's in LaJolla many times. We love their food and friendly atmosphere. Santa Clara Piatti's was equal to our experience in LaJolla. The service was exceptional - friendly and engaging - without affecting our table conversation. The food was wonderful. We will undoubtedly return when we are in the area again.

Pros
-We were seated quickly
-Appetizers and kids meals came out quickly
-Calamari was good, a little greasy, but good flavor
-The kids liked their food
-Steak was cooked to order
-Ambience was warm

Cons
- I had called earlier in the day and spoke with the hostess and requested 1 high chair. She verified my name and confirmed it would be there. Note*I did try to send include this in my Open Table reservation however I kept getting an error message that the app could not communicate with the restaurant. Upon arrival, they did not have the table set up, they simply moved the high chair from another table that had just departed, without wiping it down! I understand this may happen, but I was a little disheartened as I was standing right there to see it. Yuck!

-My husband ordered coffee for after dinner, it never arrived

-We talked to one of the servers and we told him it was our 10 year anniversary, he then started talking about how he got divorced after 20 years. Pretty morbid and not something you want to talk about at your anniversary dinner.

Our server was great and very nice to us and our daughter. We were attended to whenever we needed anything. Food was pretty good. It is definitely up there. You can tell and taste the quality of ingredients. It ain’t no Olive Garden. Lol. Filet Mignon was so delicate and high quality. The cooked it bringing out the natural flavors of the steak. Not to overwhelm it with sauce or seasoning. Tomato sauce tasted made in house fresh. Gelato was among the best we’ve had. Excellent.

We arrived at 12 noon on Valentine’s Day and the place was packed. As we sat down I thought we were destined for poor service and a good potential for disappointment in the food. Our experience was exactly the opposite. The service was excellent and the server was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The dishes were served in a timely way and were fresh, well presented and delicious. I highly recommend this place!

We had another fine evening at Piatti's. We called ahead to let them know that we were running late. Despite being 90 minutes late they had the table ready for us. We had a great business dinner: delicious food, exceptional wine and excellent service. Thank you. We will be back. Also the noise level was very quiet. It was after 8 PM.

The food was fantastic and the service quick and attentive. We tried their house brand wine during happy hour and it was really delicious, considering the value. They missed checking us in for Open Table, but that was corrected. I highly recommend this restaurant and we look forward to going back.

Our server was excellent. I was with a friend I had not seen in awhile and we wanted to sit and talk long after our meal ended. Luckily it was not a terribly busy night so we were able to sit at our table for hours. I really appreciated our servers attitude about our needs. She was awesome.

The prices are very high given the quantity of the food. My gnocchi dish was $17 for a small portion, then $4 more for (a small amount of) added chicken. My co-worker has a restricted diet, so they prepared her a plate of cooked vegetables. They served a very small portion -- for $16. Small dessert portions (Tiramisu, chocolate cake) were $9 each.

The noise level was so high that it was difficult for the four of us seated around a small table to hear each other.

I live near Piatti, so I am a "frequent flyer". Overall the best thing about the restaurant is the service. The food can be hit or miss, but is generally quite good. The dessert menu could use some upgrades, as the options are very standard and unexciting. But my Pappardelle with Venison Ragu was very, very good - rich without being overwhelming, and a reasonable portion that allowed me to take some home. I have not tried their pizzas as I am gluten free, but there are some very appetizing suggestions. Overall, the food is pretty good, the service is very good without overly hovering, and I would both recommend it to a friend, and eat there again.
