I enjoyed my meal very much. The service was outstanding, and the ambiance was great. Make sure to dress business casual and check this place out.

Piatto Ristorante is a wonderful, Carabbas-family owned restaurant. We are always well served as well as well fed! We have eaten there twice this week since they have been allowed to re-open.

Service great, food enjoyable but not outstanding. Wife had their special salad and found it a little lacking. The eggplant parmigiana was tasty.

We went on Valentine’s Day. It was crowded but we were seated relatively quickly. The food was delicious and not too expensive. The portions were a tad small but I would visit again.

This experience was awful and ruined valentines day for my lovely valentine. We had an 830 reservation. They must have quadruple booked. At 9 we still had not been seated. It was crowded and the atmosphere was completely ruined with upset patrons whose reservations were also not honored. Horrible horrible experience. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYONE!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming hostess who informed us the restaurant was running a few minutes behind on our reservation; which was to be expected on Valentine’s Day. We made our way to the bar and had a glass of wine while we waited. Said hostess came and got us from the bar area a short time later; and I’m so glad we waited. Were seated at our table and immediately greeted by our waiter with water and bread. Our food came with relative quickness and was everything we could have wanted and more. Fresh house made pasta and Italian sausage in the parpadella dish that i ordered and the ravioli dish my date ordered were absolutely delicious. Highly highly recommend

First time here, as I took my GF for Valentines Day. We started with the Calamari Fritti, and that was gone in a flash! For the main course, I had the Chicken Piatto and my GF had the Tuscan Shrimp. Again, all delicious. Will come back in the future ...

Houston traffic was at a stop on 2/14, and it took us 30+ minutes to get down Post Oak from Richmond. We called twice to let Piatto's know we would be late, and they were very accommodating. Once we finally got there - it was a great evening. The service was attentive, food was delicious, and every one seemed to be having a good time. It was a very enjoyable evening, and we will look forward to returning soon.

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!

My favorite Italian restaurant in Galleria area. Come back from The Woodlands just to go here. Love their asparagus with crab appetizer and when you order it mixed with the fried calamari, it is out of this world! Add the veal piccata and a dessert like the crime brûlée and you are in Heaven.

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.
