Pasta not quite cooked, and served warm, not hot.
Those booths/tables are really tight.

Always enjoy it here. Good food good service. Always a little noisy, but always busy. So I guess that’s a good thing

Pizza was great, when it arrived. Waited almost a whole hour for our food. It is not acceptable to make sit-in customers wait only because you prioritize take out. This needs to be fixed.

Food was excellent. Service was adequate. Had a 7:30 reservation, and got seated at a table in the front of the restaurant in their window, which must open up in the summer because it was a nasty draft.

Got up and walked around would love to return some night and sit near the pizza oven to see all the action.

We had gnocchi, arancini, then green bean salad and sicilian pizza. Food was phenomenal, only a couple minor service issues which was impressive given the full house and they didn't affect our overall experience.

I would however recommend insulating the window better or rearranging the dining room to not have a table by the front window during the colder months.

We appreciated having a booth especially since the noise level is HIGH but the booth was by a window and very drafty. The food was excellent and the service was friendly if somewhat amateurish -- the waiter mentioned it was his first week on the job.

Recommendation: take out or delivery!

Excellent experience. Caesar salad was exceptionally good this day. Music was very loud (making conversation hard to hear), but it was turned down as soon as we mentioned it to a server. Corner table (by the front entrance window) was very bright in the eyes as it was a sunny day. Perhaps blinds might be in order (but then again, do we really get enough consistent sun for that??).
An excellent lunch meal, as always. Thanks!!

We did have a 40-minute wait for an appetizer, which is out of character for Piatto.

I really wish you guys could do something about the noise, Because of the open celings and hard surfaces, ll conversation echoes and builds into a sometimes maddening background noise. Add to that msic being played too loud, and it becomes difficult to hear what the other person/people at the table are even saying. I'd come to Piatto a lot more often if it wasn't so noisy.

The noise level was not "energetic" -- it was unacceptable! The policy of not taking reservations over the phone is unpleasant. I would recommend trying it to a friend who could go to a late lunch and request a booth or order takeout or delivery. The food is excellent!

It was busy however the waiter could have stopped at the table to acknowledge us gotten a drink order. We had to wait 1/2 hour before we knew who our waiter was. No drink at this time either.

Make a reservation. The food is lovely, and its' popular so it gets really full at lunch and dinner, so you often have to wait for a table if you haven't reserved one. The wood fired pizza is heavenly, and the sides are generous and flavourful.

Predictably efficient service with great food that leaves you feeling full and well. Yes, the space is tight and the noise is heightened at lunch. Parking is right in front and so appreciate the rapid service. All seems to quieten down on the few evenings I have visited.

Predictably, excellent in every area - from greeting, to food, to service. And, owned and operated by NLers who source locally. Just a wee bit too tight when seated at a table for two downstairs. And, love. love the Open Table app.

For a special need I asked for a booth.
I knew it can’t be guaranteed.
We didn’t get one but did get against the wall which was good.
We enjoyed our food.
Place is very loud and hustle bustle all around.
Will go again.

I was happy with my server and food however since to took the time to make a reservation and requested a both I was disappointed in being told they could not give me a booth because my party was too small. The whole point of making a reservation was to get a booth.

Great food and service as always! Love the new location and the atmosphere. Our only "critique" would be the booths. While they look really nice, the tables are VERY narrow in terms of getting your legs in and out.

The only complaint I have is that the door to the patio was left open...we were seated at t table right by the door and it was chilly. We were moved without any fuss. People on the patio were wearing jackets and were given blankets to keep warm and had gas heaters which were not of much use because of high winds. We asked for blankets but there was only one left...my niece was trembling from the cold. It was very uncomfortable. When I asked about the door being left open the waitress said it was to keep the air conditioning working???? I have been cold there when the patio door has not been open. I understand that staff cooking the pizza must be hot but it is not nice eating when it is cold. Too bad because the food is exceptional. Service is great too.

The ambiance was great. The salad good however I found it to be small for the price. The fig prosciutto pizza was very good but the arugula was replaced by spinach and it definitely did not have the impact that arugula would have had. The toppings were sparse. The mushroom gorgonzola pizza was pleasant enough to the palate however it was wet and visually unappealing. The excess liquid should have been removed somehow and some fresh chopped herbs or something would have improved the appearance. If it is appealing to the eye it helps the taste buds. The crust was light and airy and the outside crust had a good bite.
