Food was great, but served not warm. Service seemed very rushed. Everyone was very nice and had three different people other than our server check on us. Could have been busy with restaurant week.

We were greeted graciously by the front desk( by name) and our server did likewise.
The server presented our drinks and gave us ample time to settle in , enjoy our cocktails then asked for our order. The food was very well prepared and enjoyable.
We did not have dessert but the cappuccino and expresso were excellent.
Overall, a very pleasant evening.

We have been here 2-3 times in the past and it's a solid choice every time. This last experience was a bit hectic with a 7:30 reservation they had run a bit behind and it started off with a very slow and uncomfortable seating arrangement. However, once the server did come over, he was quick and attentive and made sure we had an excellent experience. They quickly made up for the small issue in the begging and we had a wonderful experience. Food is always delicious and we will be coming back!

Wonderful experience. Food was delicious but the owner, his Mom and the entire staff made us feel so welcome. Such an enjoyable evening, and we can’t wait to come back. We were celebrating our anniversary- and it was just a perfect evening.

We had loved this place about 15 years ago and were revisiting out of nostalgia. Asparagus and lump crabmeat appetizer is still outstanding! We had the medallions of beef, ordered rare and medium rare. Both orders were a little tough and overcooked. Sauce was good. Dessert cakes were both average. Food is average, good value.

Thought with the construction near by figured traffic would be horrible but in and out it was a breeze.

The food and service at Piatto is consistently awesome. The veal marsala was spectacular and a friend ordered a shrimp dish I had never tried-super tasty (Spiedlini or something like that).

Always enjoyable but especially this visit since we were supporting the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation by ordering from the special menu! Our meals were delicious and our waiter,Squash was so very professional and efficient. Johnny Carrabba also came by to greet us! A great time!

Due to all of the construction on Post Oak, the place was deserted. I hope they can survive until it is completed as the food and service is exceptional.

Our party of four dined on a Monday evening, which provided a good subdued atmosphere for catching up with friends. Service was prompt and not intrusive. The Linguine Bashaw (shrimp in white wine sauce) was well prepared and seasoned. The portions are generous, so I had a great lunch the next day, also. My other guests enjoyed their dishes, as well. I highly recommend Piatto to my friends.

Food was fantastic. Service was quick. We met Mr. Carraba and he was very personable and friendly even though the restaurant was busy. The asparagus with lump crab meat and lemon butter sauce was to die for. Next time Im ordering that Im not sharing.

We took some friends from the Netherlands who are relocating to Houston. It was their first time. They loved the food and the service. They said it will not be their last. The snapper special was very nice as was the pasta primavera.

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.
