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.

Piatto has been a "go to" restaurant for many, many years. The food is always excellent and extremely consistent. The service is always exemplary! Piatto is one of our favorite restaurants and I highly recommend it to everyone.

We dined outside, so it was a bit noisy, but we weren't really paying attention.

Piatto never lets me down. The food is always remarkable and the service is spectacular. Two Carrabbas were in-house, and both took the time to stop at our table for a chat. I felt like I was sitting in Johnny's kitchen. Fantastic.

So happy to see that Piatto’s has reopened. This is one of our favorite for good, hearty, (but not too heavy) Italian food. And there are plenty of light, vegetable-based options, in addition to the heartier fare. Any dish with seafood is always fresh, and the pasta is always cooked al dente. Great, friendly staff. Tables are arranged such that there is amble space ice social distancing.

Our server Enrique (sp) was VERY attentive and accommodating in every way. The food was excellent. Atmosphere was very quiet as when we arrived, we were the only cpule in the restaurant, but two more couples came in. The manager or owner came to our table and congratulated us on our anniversary! The meal was topped off with a delicious creamy cake. Our overall experience was wonderful!

Our meal was delicious and quite a bargain. We all dined on the $35.00 3 course anniversary dinner celebrating their 35 years in business. The signature asparagus with crab meat appetizer always is a crowd pleaser.
