Service was very neglectful. Posts salad was uninspired. Medium pork chop was served well done and fry.

The food was delicious and the service was great. The asparagus appetizer is always a favorite. I always enjoy coming back here and bringing my customers.

I really was expecting a more Italian environment. The food was average, nothing special and service was just good. I believe that it’s a place to not comeback

Nice neighborhood place. Waiter disappeared repeatedly despite nearly empty house. Food is very good but not fine dining - more like good home cooking. Nothing wrong with that!

First time since we were visiting Texas. The owners were friendly and good hosts by checking in personally with us throughout the night. The staff were on point and also made sure to check on us often. The food was delicious! We will return for sure.

We loved it. The owner was so kind and our service was fantastic. We loved the food. My only critique would be the music choice. I would’ve loved some Italian music in the background instead of the pop culture radio and there was a slight buzzing sound. Other than that, we had a fantastic time.

Excellent service. I would go just for the asparagus and crabmeat appetizer, but the pasta and the daily fish special are always superb as well. John Marion Carrabba and his staff, both in the front of the house and in the kitchen, consistently provide a great experience.

Nothing is normal due to CoVid, but I just didn’t feel Piatto’s was on top of it’s game for this visit. Food was just okay, service wasn’t personable at all (I think the masks contributed to that), and I personally felt rushed. We aren’t frequent customers because we live out of town, but when we are celebrating something special Piatto’s has always been our go to place, and it just missed the mark this time in my opinion.

Our favorite, ‘go-to’, Italian restaurant. The food here is always good, fresh and authentic; and their fried asparagus with lump crab meat appetizer is the standard by which we rate any others we’ve had(and still, none compares) We’ve been coming to Piattos for over 10 years, and missed them when they wee temporarily shut down during the pandemic. Thankfully, they’ve reopened with our favor servers still there.

First time here. Early dinner on the patio with friends. Food and service were both top notch. Patio is a few feet away from very busy and very loud traffic, but not much they can do about that. Had the October 3-course special for $35/person. Not a bad price for great food in the heart of the Galleria.
