We had a great experience at the restaurant. It was my wife's birthday and she was delighted. The food was wonderful and the gentleman that served us has had my table in the past and he is terrific. Loved the house salad, escargot, fried asparagus and lamb chops. Will be returning soon.

Piatto's is one of our favorite places to eat. The staff is always friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food is delicious - always - everything we've tried has been completely satisfying. We find this place a great family restaurant liked by grandparents, and grandkids - and their parents! The asparagus is the first thing we order - and could make a meal just on it with the delicious crab and lemon/butter sauce!

The food was good. I took friends to dinner; the waiter totally ignored me assuming I was not the one paying for the meal. He was not very attentive to begin with. When he brought the check to the table he placed it in front of the only man at the table. It was awkward for my guests as well as for me to try and reach for it.
Thinking back I obviously should have left a minimal tip. FYI the reservation was in my husband’s name so that there were actually 2 women and only 1 man at the table.

We went on Thanksgiving with a party of three and we all enjoyed our dinner. I had shrimp risotto and the other two people had the turkey dinner. The food was outstanding and the service was good. You cannot go wrong eating at Johnny Carrabba's restaurant.

Great. Great. Great. Food. The best Veggie Risotto with grilled shrimp. The shrimp had the best glaze and the risotto was perfectly cooked and so tasty. Pasta dishes are fantastic too. Very low-key, quite ambiance. Good service too. One of the best for Italian.

Terrific service and food. Juan our waiter was friendly and very attentive. The shrimp wrapped in bacon was excellent, the bacon not overpowering and the shrimp tender. The eggplant Parmesean is lightly breaded thus letting you focus on the eggplant. We got chance to chat a bit with the owner, Mr. Carrabba, a very friendly and warm host. This is why Piatto is an excellent restaurant, it starts at the top. To the Carrabbas, keep up the excellent food and service. I hope to return soon.

Piatto is a favorite of ours. The food is always delicious and service great. The owner, Johnny Carrabbla is always present. Most of the time, so is his mother. Love patronizing local restaurants.

Black tablecloths depressing. Need candles on the table. Ambiance lacking. Too many other good looking restaurants in our town not to spiff up a bit. Good service.

A group of our friends met at Piatto. Juan was our waiter, and he was excellent at taking care of the 11 of us. As always, the food was delicious, and the setting is relaxing and warm. It allowed all of us to catch up with each other and have an enjoyable evening.

My friend and I ordered the same salmon dish. Her piece was twice the size of mine. I didn’t ask for another so as not to ruin our evening, but this was something that the waiter should have noticed before serving. I guess they had a leftover piece and wanted to get rid of it. I won’t be back.

Hidden gem! I have celiac disease and am able to eat here with no problems. They are very accommodating and understand my allergy. Consistently good food - although I find dinner better than lunch because there are more selections. Service is good, but on our last visit, the waiter was stretched thin with too many tables. Reasonably priced and nice wine list. Mr. Carraba and his mother are always there and are so nice!
