John, the owner, is very hands on and wants all of his customers to feel welcomed. He always tries to spend at least a few minutes with each party to ensure they feel welcomed. To me this is what sets Piattos apart from many other restaurants. It also does not hurt that the food and general service are also great. I have been to many high end restaurants but we keep coming back here because of the way we are made to feel welcomed.

Great service! I ordered the piatto salad, except for the roasted garlic, it was good. In fairness, garlic is written in menu, but I didn't see it. The Tuscan shrimp, was delicious!

Food was good although one dish was very small for the price. Ice cream for the kids was a nice touch. It was not busy and took 30 mins from the time we were finished eating to get the bill and pay. That was annoying.

I was so pleased with Piatto, somehow after living in Houston most of my life I had never visited this wonderful restaurant. It’s the kind of place you just get a good feeling when you walk in. After discovering the escargot & brie I knew the remainder of my meal would be just as delicious. My date and I shared the linguine pescatore and Tuscan shrimp entrees and both were so full of flavor. The tiramisu is one of the best I’ve had, the service was warm and attentive and there was a great wine selection. I can’t wait to go back and introduce my friends Piatto!

Due to location (one way street), and the construction, it's a little difficult to get to, but well worth the effort. Valet parking, interior well decorated, tables nicely set. Wait staff highly professional, and the food is excellent. We were a group of 5. Appetizers were of a good variety. Menu ran the gamut from burgers to pasta, to delicious meats ... Highly recommened.

It is always pleasant dining here. The atmosphere is relaxing and service excellent. I "LOVE" the beef medallions in a marsala sauce - I want to lick the plate clean.

Valentine’s Day they overbooked all times thus when we arrived for our 7:45pm time they said it would be 10-15min before they could seat us due to no available tables. The hostess was very nice enough to prompt us back in and seat us at a table even though there were other people in front of us. Food was decent but not the greatest. Our server was ok. It was busy this we didn’t expect personalized service. Would consider going back but not during events or special occasions.

Took my wife here for Valentines day. We had an early dinner so it was very quiet. Excellent Manhattan to drink. The food was great, best lamb chops I have had. Service was spot on from the server and hostess. We have recommended this place and we will be back.

We haven't been to Piatto's in a while, but it was as good as I remember. The food and service is consistently way above average and it's relatively quiet compared to most restaurants in the area. It's a lovely place to go with great food and a very nice ambiance.

This place is amazing. Our waiter Juan did a great job taking care of us. The price is very reasonable and service is very personalized. Juan made sure to greet the regulars while still taking care of us. Veal was on the menu, but we really wanted Saltimbocca. The chef was happy to make it without extra charge. The chocolate cake was huge. We’ll definitely come back.
