Outstanding Business Lunch Spot

Dined 4 days ago

Our team celebrated Administrative Professionals' Day with a party of 9 at Piatti, and it was a great experience. The service was excellent, and the food, as always, was outstanding! The hostess was welcoming, and we were treated very well. I highly recommend Piatti for business lunches, large groups, or for any occasion.

I have a feeling they now have a different chef

Dined on April 7, 2016

Slightly different menu and slightly different presentation and slight different taste. Calamari has more herbs and oily. Also pizzas gone larger and more oily base. Didn't enjoy as much as in the past.

Dined on April 5, 2016

Everyone who works there is wonderful especially Dario, Guy and Francis. Amiee in the sales department is great for larger groups. Charles, the manager on duty most of the time is always making sure that you are taken care of. It is a very busy lunch time spot especially Monday's and Tuesday's. Overall we have always had a great time there, good food and good service.

Food and Service is Always Tops!

Dined on April 1, 2016

From the time I was greeted to the time I left the door, my experience at this restaurant has been tops. The staff prompted greeted us and treated us like royalty. The menu was not extensive, but offered a range of options. The waiter offered and promptly provided suggestions. Each entree was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely will return.

Piatti Has Gone Downhill

Dined on March 3, 2016

Stated with waiting for >10 Minutes to get a glass of wine at the bar, which had been opened for a while, while waiting for my dining companion. Menu seems to have changed from traditional dishes to more contemporary and eclectic ... not very good. The best part of the experience was the waiter, who was very attentive. Not sure I will go back.

fun place for a group dinner

Dined on January 4, 2016

We had a Sunday night reservation for a group dinner and Piatti did not disappoint! They called ahead to confirm the reservation and to ask if we needed high chairs. We arrived a few minutes early, and our table was already ready! Service was good. Our server was very patient when our group trickled in an placed staggered orders for drinks. The food was good, but they could have increased the portion sizes a little bit.

We had dinner here Sunday evening. Our waiter was extremely personable and attentive, and the food was absolutely delicious (we had the special pizza, minestrone soup, salads, and the apple tart with salted caramel gelato for dessert). I asked for the remainder of my salad to be boxed, and also requested a bowl of the minestrone to go, since it was SO incredibly delicious. When I opened the package the next day for lunch, I discovered the waiter had tucked in some of their delicious bread and olive oil/vinegar dip so I had a complete meal. What a nice touch to top of a perfect evening!

Chicken Breast Potato-parsnip puree, green & yellow beans, chicken jus I ordered the chicken breast with purée potato parsnip. The chicken was DRY/TASTELESS, purée was tasteless and the greens had a strange taste. I decided not to make a fuss like my friend wanted me to. I was not paying so I ate what I could and I let it go.. Disappointing

I was somewhat disappointed with Piatti. The food was dry and under seasoned as well as overpriced for the quality. The service was only mediocre. I don't think I will go back nor would I recommend it, unless I hear things have changed.

Business lunch .. I can't hear you

vip
Dined on December 9, 2015

Food is always great. Local with healthy options. Made reservations quite in advance and generally the staff was great.. A little slow on taking orders but the place was packed, actually overflowing. Noise level here is always a consideration due to the open floor plan; but it was so loud we were unable to have a discussion .. I enjoyed the tomatoe soup and arugula persminnon salad .. Note on the salad the arugula was so immature as in small I felt I was trying to graze off my fork. Although the salad was fantastic on flavor, the greens were falling through the tines of my fork.. Rather unappealing during a business lunch..

I was there for a business dinner and due to the holiday season there was a lot of big tables and lots of noise so it was rather hard to have a good conversation. Food was well presented but my pasta was a bit on the saltier side. Overall a good place.

We came back after having an awful experience the last time. This was a Saturday and our reservations were at 530pm. No problems at all. Our waiter was very attentive. The food and drinks arrived without problems. The food was excellent. I had the soup of the day and the filet mignon. Everything was good. We will definitely go back again.

Hadn't been in a while. Service wasn't great and it was really loud inside. They screwed up the bill but by the time we finally got it, we had to go so we worked it out ourselves. My eggplant sandwich was really good. Maybe add something other than just feta and dressing to the side salad. Maybe a cuc or tomato? I know it's a side salad, but really? Also, ease up on the garlic in in your the bread dipping sauce. I know it's close to Halloween and the vampires are out, but no need to overdo it. To me it's not worth the pain of Rivermark Plaza during the lunch hour.
