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.

Special was bad. Looked awful. Risotto was tough. Parmesan crisp was bitter. Too much truffle oil. I quit after a few bites. Manager comped it.

App was great and my husband enjoyed fish stew.

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.

We had a couple of small problems with a couple of dishes (too spicy, foreign object) our dishes were whisked away and replaced with no problems at all. Our server was experienced, polite and very personable. Have been here before and definitely will go back to Piatti's again

I was very disappointed by Piatti's this last time. The Caesar salad dressing was bland and their signature Chop salad was hardly chopped. The dressing was like milk and the portions of all the other things were minimal. The Putanesca was bitter. The portions were much smaller than they should have been for the price. Very surprisingly bad.
They have been so good in the past, I'll give them one more try, but if things aren't better, I'll never be back.

Great food and terrific service! It's also in a convenient location while one is shopping in University Village. I had the meatball dish (spaghetti) with pinot gris, while my partner had butternut squash ravioli with merlot. Great wine. The atmosphere was very cozy and comfortable. Our only issue was that they seated up in an area where large groups would normally be cordoned off. It's a separate room, but wide open to the main dining room. The only other party in there was a large group of 12 or more, with 4 young children. The kids were not being mischievous, but were making a noticeable commotion opening Christmas presents and running back and forth to the restroom. At one point the 3 boys had locked themselves in the toilet stalls for fun, not allowing use by anyone else. The restaurant staff were oblivious to this activity, despite us pointing it out. So we just ate and left without dessert or lingering. We didn't understand why we were seated in that area with the main dining room more than half-empty.

Piatti is always my first choice at the University Village. Food is great, service outstanding, and it's relatively quiet compared to its nearby competitors. I have my favorite dishes and they are consistently excellent.

It's rare to find a restaurant that becomes a 'go-to' favorite these days with so many options, but Piatti remains at the top of my list.

This was a pleasing pre-concert meal. Service was very good, as was the food. We both had vegetarian pasta dishes, and were both pleased. We shared a salad, and were delighted to find a restaurant that still serves anchovies with their Caesar salads!

We had a great dinner there last summer but couldn't believe how mediocre it was this time. And to pay almost $10 for a pathetic little plate of chopped lettuce, cranberries and hazelnuts was ridiculous. The pasta was overcooked but tasted okay-tho also overpriced. I was really disappointed this time and won't go back.

Great neighborhood spot in the University Village where you can meet with friends for a quick bite - our waiter was wonderful, we each just had a bowl of soup and a salad (5 ladies), spending very little $$ and he was still very attentive yet not overly so. We have always enjoyed Piatti - and by the way the food is very good. You simply can't go wrong here, they know what they are doing!! Thanks for being there, Piatti.

Easy to get in. Reliable food. Not great, but better than ‘meh’. Drink/wine menu are better than they have to be, and the bucatini is nice and spicy. The focaccia set down on the table on arrival with balsamic/olive oil has been a classic for decades and is still good.

Amazing food, service and ambience. We had a late evening dinner reservation for a large party, in celebration of a good friend’s birthday. Everything exceeded expectations. Our server was wonderful, and despite the fact that we were probably the last people in the place essentially closing it down, never once did were we ever made to feel rushed, which defines a class act! Special place — recommend most strongly on every front!
