Piatti's is better than it used to be. It is not a good place for people who want to converse, however, as the noise level is beyond reasonable.

I have eaten all at your properties with my two daughters and mother. Your menu has changed drastically and you charged us for bread. Four times. I will never eat at your restaurant again. Ee had to ask for everything. Cheese, chili flakes, oil, salt and pepper. This is not Acceptable and our waiter was not service oriented, this is not a covid matter!

Piatti updates their menus quite regularly, and quite often. The offerings were tweaked a bit and there were some new dishes. My wife likes raviolis and ordered a dish. It had a cream sauce so we switched that to Bolognese, as she has lactose issues. Nothing we could do about the ricotta cheese in the raviolis though. There were also 5 large raviolis. So, she had plenty of room for dessert.

I ordered the Squid Ink Linquine with clams. The sauce was good, a light wine sauce, but the clams were spiced, and for me, it ruined the meal. I like to taste the pasta with the sauce and I love shellfish of all kinds, but I want to taste the pasta and the shellfish, no spice. I can eat spice, but do not prefer it on most meals. I was not aware and not warned that it would be spicy.

Service was good, although a little slow. and bread, wine, dessert were all great. Price was reasonable, not cheap, but not crazy either.

Special Mother's day for my wife was good for her not for me.

I still think this is a good restaurant, but I am more of a traditional Italian and probably would not go back unless I review the menu and see something that I like first.

Excellent food. Great service. Only thing I would change is that the server did not come over to ask for drinks or appetizers until the whole party arrived. Parking in the U District can take a while sometimes. Would have been nice to get the appetizers in early as the group was hungry.

We were there for the Mother's Day brunch and were seated outdoors. Everyone enjoyed their choices. I had the grilled halibut, which was outstanding. My daughter had the short ribs, very tasty. My husband had a spaghetti dish with shrimp and my son-in-law, a ravioli dish. The service was excellent as always.

I took my girlfriend to this restaurant for her birthday.
We have been there before but it was so-so experience this time because (1) I requested the table seating when I made a reservation but the host took me to one of bar seat. (2) two servers forgot our request to bring new clean plates for pastas (3) calamari was sooooo salty. I told the server but he didn’t do anything about it.

Disappointing changes in the menu!! This has been our “go to” place, but certainly not now. They have cut their menu down to far fewer choices—only three entrees: chicken, steak, and a lamb special. Plain Jane. This is the Northwest, but not one fish or shellfish main course.
Even pasta dishes are pretty basic. One has some shrimp, but with lots of red sauce. One has clams, but with sausage. No scallops. No fish. Little that is light.
Also gone is the marvelous octopus appetizer, the seared tuna main dish salad and the steak salad.

Tonight was my fifth meal at Piatti since Dec.24, 2019. But I must not be the customer profile they are looking for. Sad! So tonight was my fifth and I don’t want it to be my last...but the “new” menu simply does NOT appeal.

We were in the vicinity and had dined happily at Piatti's before, so we stopped for an early dinner that was technically on the "happy hour" menu. Great idea! The food selections were delicious and imaginative, and any restaurant that can make brussels sprouts taste magical is pretty darned impressive. Very accommodating and helpful wait staff, convenient to U. Village shopping, lovely food.
