Went there Valentine’s Day now. Loved the veal piccata and of course the crabmeat asparagus! Sat at table near the bar and had the best view. Service was great and food came out super hot as always!

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.

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.

Everything was superb. Our server, Luis, was appropriately attentive without making us feel pressured. The kitchen handled my companion’s special request impeccably, and my own entree was excellent. This restaurant is in my top ten for both business and personal lunches, as well as family dinners.

We love John Carrabba's Piatto Ristorante near the Galleria in Houston. Although we live over 100 miles away (Austin TX), we always have a meal at John's place. He is always onsite to provide the friendliness of service and always exceeds our expectations.

As always, the food was excellent. The service was pretty slow tonight, especially given a very sparse crowd. 15 mins between getting drinks and being asked to order appetizer. Then 10 minutes between "yes, we're ready for the check" and actually getting the check. Will chalk it up to a reduced staff and of course we'll be back.

Our party was 5. We had made a reservation for 7 but called to see if we could put it earlier. "Jackie" was very helpful and let us come at 6:15. We really appreciated it.
The fixed meal was wonderful, we all 5 ordered from that menu. Nobody went home hungry!
Happy New Year!

We had a great experience (as always) but I couldn’t give 5 Stars this time because two of the sea bass dishes tasted fishy. This shouldn’t have been the case. Overall, all the food was terrific. I just wish our fish had been tastier.

Haven't been in a very long time but my favorite dish was still yummy. Shrimp scampi. My only concern was the portion for the price. There wasn't very many fettuccine noodles besides that owner provided exceptional customer service throughout our dinner.
