Our dinner experience was very pleasant. The food was of good quality and reasonable price but the best was our waiter who provided exceptional service. He was very pleasant and helpful, we couldn't decide on which wine to order and he got us samples. Also, I like the bright atmosphere of Piatti's .

My book group met at Piatti and we had a great time. The server very kindly gave us separate checks without being asked and that really was a big help. We chose this restaurant because there is great food, free parking, and a low noise level that made it possible to have a conversation with a group of seven people. Everyone was happy with their meal and especially enjoyed dessert!

We have been to Piatti 3 times over the last few months. It is a good family restaurant but not for foodies. The food is fine, not special. The first two times the service was excellent. This last time, we had to look for our waitress. The new décor is very nice.

The gnocchi was bland which was a special that day. The appetizer was hard to eat. When you pay that much for food it should be better than what I make at home.

The restaurant glass of friend’s orange juice broke on its own, but our server handled the situation very well and Piatti’s paid for our lunch. Thank you for dealing with the situation in a very civilized way.

Among the 6 different meals ordered for Easter brunch/lunch, I'd say we had a 50/50 success rate for diner "happiness": thought the biscuit and gravy brunch, veggie sandwich and sausage pizza were tasty and would probably order again. The Margherita pizza was rated "OK", the "ribs" pizza was "interesting, but wouldn't order again", and my father in law finished about 40% of his chicken ragout. He did eat the fresh fruit appetizer with gusto, and our whole table did like the donut hole appetizer. Delish! Our server was very sweet and ready to please -- when asked. She was not very observant, or anticipatory in her service. Had to flag her down for almost everything we needed, as well as getting our service started (didn't ask if we wanted drinks, etc. while we waited for the final guest to arrive at the table. Maybe this is what she is supposed to do, but normally you are given the opportunity to order drinks, etc while waiting for all your guests to arrive. At least at other restaurants this is the norm.....)

Our experience was outstanding in both food and service. Our server listened to a concern about the food given a medical condition and was quick to suggest items that would work for us. The manager came by several times to ensure we were satisfied. We will go again when we return to the Seattle area even if we have to drive a distance.

The menu continues to disappoint. Piatti's used to be my "go to" place to meet friends. I like the atmosphere, the plentiful free parking and used to love the food. Now I am finding it expensive with limited choices. I have eaten here twice in the last month and am afraid that I am going to find some place else to meet friends for lunch.

Piatti is always reliable. I liked the menu better before the remodel and definitely liked the décor better. Food was fresh and tasty and the waiter attentive. There is a variety on the menu to satisfy most appetites.

We have been having lunch at Piatti off and on for 24 years and we have always enjoyed ourselves until this last time. The prices seem to have been raised significantly compared to a year ago and they now charge for bread that is not as good as before when it was part of the meal. Even though we arrived at 11:30 to beat the lunch crowd, the service was extremely slow, about 45 minutes to be served. There were small insects (fruit flies?) flying around our table. We didn't think the food was as good as before. Looks like 3 big strikes to me.

After 24 years this is a big disappointment and I don't think we'll be back. It looked like quite a few other diners might have already made that decision because the restaurant looked half empty compared to earlier visits.

We dined at Piatti for a family birthday, and we have been there many times before. The service was excellent - first class - and we found it very hospitable. The food was good but not great - terrific ingredients, but the flavors didn't all blend right . Specifically, there was not enough Caesar dressing on the salad, and the Puttanesca sauce didn't seem quite balanced between the tomato and caper flavors. Also, I'm nostalgic - I preferred the warmer décor of the old Piatti, before the recent remodel. I will certainly go again, but Mama Melina has an edge over Piatti.

Pizza was good, pastas were below average. I could make way better pasta at home. My penne was beyond undercooked (Not al dente, I know what that is), bland tomato cream sauce, hardly any guanciale. My friend’s bucatini was sooo salty.

We needed a restaurant that could accommodate seven of us. Our experience was enjoyable; however, two of our entrees were just OK (Albacore tuna). The rest of our food was very good - appetizers, entrees and desserts were devoured. The restaurant was a bit noisy and being near the kitchen added to the decibel level.

I met my friend at Piatti and we both loved our experience. Our FAB waiter, Marshall, was great: friendly, helpful, attentive and fun. We had the beet salad which is my favorite one so far (and I order beets a lot), great wine from Tuscany, and, for me, a dieter's choice of lovely mahi-mahi with grilled radicchio. We split a light desert, sipped a bit more wine and promised to return. The atmosphere was upbeat and lively, parking great!, and many people around us celebrating birthdays and/or just a simple night with delicious food. I can't wait to return!

It was reserved from Google map which is super convenient. The bread was so delicious with olive oil and vinegar, one of the best I had so far. Pasta tasted great, even for me a person who is into pasta. And I like it. Environment and service were nice. We will definitely go again sometimes.

We were frequent visitors to Piatti before the major remodel. We still prefer the older room on the inside of the shopping center which retained some of the original features. We sat at the bar since we arrived early and had drinks and an appetizer. Bartenders were very friendly, drinks were great and the appetizer was forgotten but quickly fixed when prompted.
Dinner offerings were fewer than we remember from before the remodel. Our table for six had appetizers (excellent), salads & soups (very good) and 6 entrees, most of which were not served hot, rather just warm. Not a kind way to treat pasta or pizza.
We'll return again because we like the location and the small plates are excellent. Just not sure we'll stay for the whole dinner.

I wrote on my original reservation that it was my anniversary and we were hosting a small group of cousins to help celebrate with us. I then repeated this on two occasions- once on the phone when I called to move the reservation 15 minutes (Open Table incapable of making on-the-hour appts) and once again when we checked in. I expected Piatti’s to do something acknowledging our anniversary, like Palisades /Palomino/Tilth, etc. all have done for us. A card or a free dessert or a balloon or something. Why include a section asking if this is an XXXX event if you then do nothing? Disappointing when the rest of the evening was so nice.
