    Love this place! A wonderful addition to downtown dining. It has it all - amazing food and perfect friendly service. With a well priced menu of traditional and innovative Italian dishes Il Piatto will be popular with locals and tourists. With a private, shaded patio and living close by, I can see us becoming regulars. I could eat the poached pear salad everyday!

    Looking for the restaurant nearest our hotel, we were so fortunate to select Il Piatto for a relaxing dinner at the end of a long conference weekend in DC. The wine list was very well curated. The food was truly topnotch, and the service was friendly and attentive. When the manager greeted us and told us this was their third day in business, we were shocked. This place already runs like a well olive-oiled machine. I ordered the gnocchi gorgonzola, and it lived up to the memories of the first time I ate it in Trieste, Italy. Perfection in taste and texture. The lemon panne cotta was pure silk, and the tiramisu was up with the best ones I've eaten, in an appropriate portion.

    Great food and interesting menu. The restaurant runs smoothly, especially for just the 3rd night. This place is run by seasoned pros who deliver on their promise of top quality Italian food and wines in a great location.

    The food was good. The drinks were good. The decor was nice and the patio was shaded and tables were spaced apart, so you could have a conversation without being on top of anyone else. It was the service that was the problem…it just felt like the wait staff didn’t know what they were doing and we were helping them along. I am sure that with them, the service kinks will be worked out, but this may be the perfect spot to grab a drink a nosh, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a dinner or special occasion.

    Not really ready for prime time and slow kitchen service. No bread served in an Italian restaurant seems really odd or maybe they just forgot. The salmon was so so and potatoes were rubbery. The vegetable was over cooked and very oily. The egg plant was cold and not appealing. SO MANY great Italian options in DC now why go back, I would have expected so much more from this experienced restaurant Group.

    I came for lunch/happy hour on their opening day and the service, food, and drinks I received were phenomenal. My dad and I loved everything and can’t wait to come back with more family members!
