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!

Loved the food. The service was great. They were very patient with my mom. I thought the owners were nice and welcoming. I enjoyed my dinner a lot, particularly as they accommodated my request for a non-cheese/cream sauce. They offered options.

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.

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!
