Food and service outstanding. Escargot was a taste explosion! Salmon was the daily fish special, prepared with lemon and caper sauce, cooked and seasoned perfectly.
I am Italian and was raised with an amazing pasta rescipe my grandmother brought over from Italy. It’s been difficult to find anything that’s a close match to the perfection I’m used to. The pasta sauce at this restaurant was unbelievable it was just about as perfect as you can get. The taste was incredible. It is now one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city of Houston. I highly recommend this place for the food quality. If you are a “foodie” this place won’t let you down. It could be a little more sexy and intimate with candles, soft seating and fancy table clothes and and morph into one of the best places in town. But for now... settle for a food quality that will please the most discriminating customers. Five stars all the way!!’ My compliments to the chef.
It could not have been more wonderful!
Enrique and staff were great! One of my favorite places to go. Mr. John Carrabba is so friendly and personally makes sure you have a great dining experience.
Piatto's has been one of our favorites for years. will always be on our list.
Excellent. We’ll be back sooner than later!
Very nice, intimate, upscale environment that is also relaxing and casual. The food is always excellent and the service attentive.
We've never had a bad experience at Piatto.
The bomb 💥
We came on a Monday night for a HRW outing. Being the beginning of the week was not surprising that the place was almost empty. Winter was brief, somewhat friendly and was on time with drinks and the food. First course, an Asparagus dish was decent, tempura fried Asparagus with crab meat, 2/5. Second course Medallions, meat was tender and mashed potatoes where creamy, 4/5. Third course was a Double Chocolate cake, well made chocolate mousse balanced with the right amount of sweetness, 3/5. Overall experience was fair and deserves a rating of 3/5.
Piatto is consistently fresh and delicious and the food is always the right temperature. The selection is excellent (except there are too many good dishes, so selecting is tough!) and the price is very reasonable for the quality. The staff is knowledgeable and professional.
Great for lunch or dinner alike.
Awesome food. Best calimari and asparagus appetizer in the world, super good wine by the glass. Quiet, convenient and just a great restaurant!!!
First time to try Piatto, even though I work nearby. I was not impressed. The antipasti misti was good - a nice surprise was the breaded veal cutlet - but the cheese was skimpy. Average fresh mozz and a few sticks of a hard parm. Nothing in the middle to give you different layers of flavor. My guest had the Medallions, which were very good and I tried a margarita pizza. Meh. Flavors weren't fresh or savory - kind of in the middle. Tomatoes weren't flavorful enough to carry the dish. Cheese was spotty. But plenty of basil. The crust was the lowest point. Just didn't like the texture or the lack of flavor. Made me think of a frozen crust, not a fresh tossed dough.
We were all disappointed with the pizzas, maybe the rest of the menu is good - but if you can't serve a good pizza then take it off the menu.
We had a most enjoyable dining experience this past Saturday night at Piatto's. We took advantage of Houston Restaurant Week and had the 3 course pre-fixed dinner. Everyone at the table that evening had no trouble finding something that they liked from this menu. The food was great and the service/waiter was very attentive. I will probably go back again in the very near future.
We’ve been meaning to try Piatto for awhile. Houston Restaurant Weeks finally got us there. We enjoyed our meal very much. We’ll be back!
Consistent great food and drinks and great service. Very friendly atmosphere.
Really enjoyed this restaurant. Everyone was friendly referred to you by name. Food was A++. Mr. Carraba Mother was very warm and inviting. Definitely will be back.
Been here many, many times. Lots of birthdays, brought out of town visitors, office get together/birthday. (John Daugherty, Realtors)
Even with the streets torn up..very easy to get to.
Food is outstanding, wait staff fun & friendly..
Bar tender makes a great cocktails..martini, bloody Mary.
Very polite valet attendant..
Thank you for another delightful experience.
Always a great meal.
Part of the problem may be due to road construction but the restaurant seemed woefully understaffed / our waiter was too busy greeting other guests & taking orders although there were only 3 tables. Most of the work of serving and follow up was left to the busboy. One employee spent the entire evening on a ladder stocking bar items ( could have been done earlier I think). Additionally the food was not as good as in the past & we were sad as Piatto’s has always been a dependable go to place for us & it certainly was not last Tuesday night. We are not inclined to return.
The owner/manager came by to check on us and thank us for coming in. Nice touch. Great food too.
The food is consistently great! The ownership and staff are wonderful.
I hadn't been to Piatto in about a year, but my dad and I had such a great meal there on Fathers Day that we both resolved to starting going more frequently.
We had the stuffed shrimp and the chicken involitini and both were great. I had a delicious cocktail - a specialty mule.
Piattos is consistently a top choice with my friends, family and business acquaintances. The Owner Johnny Carrabba and his family are always there to ensure a perfect experience. His wait staff has in many cases been with him over 10 yrs and they know me by sight. The food is always top shelf and the service matches that. When seated at the bar, drinks are well poured(they don't skimp) and bar staff is very attentive to your needs. I do not hesitate to take anyone to Piattos--it is first class.
We really enjoyed our first time dinner here. It was great to see the owner. They provided wiki stix to entertain the kids. The food was delicious!
Went to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Everything was as expected. John has long term staff that has been with him since he opened 17 years ago. His expectations are well engrained in them. Goof food and great service make for a pleasant evening
Always great food and service at Puatto!!
It was good!
We always enjoy the great food and excellent service at Piatto's. Someone always makes their way over to the table during our meal to ask if everything is to our liking and if we need anything else. Keep up the great work.
This place is awesome!
The food was great! But the waiter made it a horrible experience, wanted to charge more! Wouldn’t go there again. So sad for a family restaurant when they hire waiters like this.
This restuarant is normally open for lunch Monday thru Friday but only for dinner on weekdays and weekends. They had a special Mother's Day brunch along with the regular menu. Fantastic. I started with Cozze dei Piatto, PEI mussels with white wine, garlic and herbs. Very good. Next I had a stuffed chicken which was excellent. My mother had the Penne Melanzane, served with olive oil, crushed tomatoes, garlic, and sautéed eggplant topped with ricotta cheese. All very good. This restuarant has been here for many years and you can tell it is run by family members. Worth going to in Houston.
We were there for Mother’s Day brunch. It was excellent. We are long-time fans of the Carrabba/Mandola restaurants but this has become our new favorite. It was comforting to see John Marion behind the bar and Mama watching over everything. The Eggs Benedict and the Eggs Carrabba were both prepared exactly to order and exactly as expected. Great experience. We’ll be back.
We were there for Mother's Day. Even though it was packed, the service did not suffer a bit. The special brunch menu was a real treat for my wife. She loves the Eggs Carabba. Two poached eggs served on veal with fresh fruit and potatoes. It made her Mother's Day.
The food was not good and not good value.
Hard to find , parking would be an issue for me . Cute ambiance . Food is good.
The food was excellent. We started with an assortment of appetizers. All the entrees were very good. The service was excellent.
We always enjoy our meals there. They are always so nice!
Always enjoy the food and service here. A bit crowded when we first arrived but less boisterous as people left and we could enjoy our conversation better. A lovely evening with good food and well-priced wine!
Great food and service!!
