Neither my husband or I thought our food was anything but ordinary

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal. He had the rosemary chicken and said it was delicious. It was half a chicken-on the small side though. He also had the wedge salad and it was on a cold plate and a nice portion. I had the linguini pescatore with a lemon butter sauce instead of the spicy marinara. It had shrimp, small crab fingers, and muscles in it. The seafood was fresh and tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and had great service as well. Wine was resonably priced

Obviously a favorite with the locals as it was apparent that the wait staff knew many of the diners. Food was good; not great. Portions were very generous and we loved our waiter, Juan AKA "Squash".

Come here for pasta.

Salads are pretty basic ... not an organic produce ...

The food was really good especially the appetizers. One could make a meal just from the appetizers.

Disappointing experience at Piatto tonight. We’ve come to this restaurant for years, and have always had positives experiences. Unfortunately, this visit was not up to their usual standards. It was a busy night, and it was obvious the staff was running around to try and keep up with the high demands. We had about 3 different waiters, and it appeared they weren’t talking to each other. Our appetizer came out quickly, which was great, but our salads came with them (although they forgot 1 persons). It would have been nice to have the appetizer, and then the salad. Then we waited a very long time for our entrees....a very, very long time. So long that one waiter came over to acknowledge the long wait. When the food finally came out, my entree was all wrong. So I had to wait about 10 min for mine while everyone else ate theirs (I was not about to make them wait any longer). And it was obvious my entree was quickly thrown together, as it was not the usual presentation or taste. The waitstaff apologized for the mistake, but the manager never even came by to acknowledge it. We got coffee and a small dessert, and not that I’m looking for comped stuff, but it would have been the right thing to give us coffees or the kids ice cream on the house. But no...everything was listed on the bill, including my crappy $36 thrown together entree. Shame on you Piatto. You lost a long time customer tonight. Best of luck.
