The meal far exceeded our expectations. For an appetizer we got Bruschetta with charred ciabatta, sauteed mushrooms, thyme, goat cheese. It was wonderful. I got the lasagna and my husband got Linguine with mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari, today's fish, garlic, parsley, chili flakes, crushed tomato sugo. Both meals were outstanding. We sat on the porch which offered a lovely ambiance... More

My wife and I enjoyed and fantastic meal hear the other day. The food was delicious! We started with the cauliflower cakes and roasted olives, followed by Lasagna and Orecchiette. Everything was amazing. We ended our evening with tiramisu. The service was attentive without being annoying. We will definitely go back!

Went to eat dinner with friends from work. I have one word to describe the place, "Yum". I know, not very elegant, but this place, while a fine dining experience, was laid back, comfortable and provided excellent, friendly service. I ordered, and enjoyed Lasagna and Tiramisu for dessert. Some of the best I've ever had. In short, this was a... More

This is solid choice for a good meal in La Jolla, not to mention you are a block away from the ocean. If you can ask for a table on the patio, a lot better. A good choice would be the past with seafood or the salads, can't go wrong with any of them.

We always have a Christmas Eve dinner with family at Piatti. The food is always amazing and the ambience just as good. They are great about accommodating a large party and children as well.

Bar is a great place to sit! Great bartenders-Michael, Helena, and Steve. They recognize you, give great service, and insure you'll be back! Middle room is a bit noisy, but patio is lovely. Food is scrumptious-mussels and shrimp parpadelle stand out! It's my "must go to" place when I am in La Jolla which is if often.

Always a good choice for everyone! We love eating on the patio, winter or summer. It is quieter there.

Piatti is a great Italian restaurant in La Jolla Shores.....great food and fun atmosphere. Feels like your favorite neighborhood family restaurant. Save room for the bread and dipping sauce not to be missed!

One of the loveliest meals we've had in years of visiting La Jolla. The house-made ravioli were superb. The veal scallopini? Tender beyond description, coddled in a silky sauce. I don't know what alchemy the chef employs to make spinach so delicious but we all had it and marveled. Starters were so generous that after the mains we were too... More
