We dined here for the first time and upon entering the restaurant to give them our name for our reservation, I was very surprised at how loud and noisy it was. Immediately, my thought was that I do not want to eat here. There was nothing great about the atmosphere. Our reservation was for outside seating on the patio and I was so glad that it was! It was entirely a different vibe outside which may have earned this restaurant it’s name. There is this beautiful old tree right in the middle of all of the tables. The lighting is perfect and they have outside heaters that will keep you nice and cozy. They will first bring you out some fresh bakery bread with the olive oil/balsamic dip with herbs that was delicious! The food was very good and their Caesar Salad was perfectly dressed. My review may not have been so generous if I had to dine inside.

In town visiting family and went here based on their recommendation. We arrived early so sat in the bar and the service was excellent. They managed to take great care of us despite the large number of to go orders that were waiting and being picked up (to go orders are picked up at the bar). Clearly many regulars that order food to be picked up based on the interaction of the bartenders and customers picking up orders. When we were seated, we didn't order an appetizer, instead we enjoyed the bread with the excellent olive oil on our table. The best olive oil and spice combination we have ever had - EXCELLENT! For dinner, one person ordered the margarita pizza which was a fairly large size and very flavorful. Two ordered the Lemon Herb half Jidori chicken and said it was well seasoned and the mashed potatoes and spinach topped it off! Another had the meatloaf which was a large portion and very filling. My husband had the veal special of the day and was very happy with it. Large portion and excelelnt flavors. I had the house made spinach-ricotta ravioli and the waitress suggested half with the lemon sauce and half with the tomato sauce and I'm so glad I did! Both were excellent and the spinach ricotta was SO smooth! Despite the filling meal, some of the deserts were way too tempting to pass up so we had the vanilla gelato and Budino Di Mela. No matter how full you are, you HAVE to get the Budino Di Mela!! I can completely understand why the locals have this as their "go to" for take out. Anything elsse would be a disappointment! Can't wait to go back! My only comment would be that our waitress seemed a little put out that we weren't ready to order our meals right away when we sat down, but we were visiting and enjoying our time together. When we asked for a few more minutes she simply turned and walked away rather than saying "I'll check back in a few minutes" or something along those lines. The service in the bar was 5 stars but because of this, we only gave the dining service 4.

I haven't been back here since 2018, though my friend who visits his 89 yr. old mother with a walker frequents this place because the mom loves the food. I had made 5:00 p.m. reservations way in advance to dine here 2 times requesting the mothers favorite spot: outside by the big tree. First visit, we arrived at 4:55. We were told that the table was just clearing out. 5:10, we were told the people still have not left. 5:20, again we were told that they are slowly getting up and that we could sit inside or on the street patio, and the 89 year old mom wanted her table. 5:30, finally we were seated, no management apologies, no complimentary round of drinks for the inconvenience of an 89 year old women waiting with a walker. Business management should either post a time frame limit (which I've seen) to your customers or don't take overlapping reservations. Second visit, again we arrived at 4:55 and yes, this time our table was ready. Both visits, the cocktails, food and service from both Laura and Alex was excellent. FYI they make excellent Cosmos. Food ordered: Beef Carpaccio, Burrata Salad, Veal Picatta, Mushroom Rotolo, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Lasagna and Pei mussels. All the dishes came out hot, fresh and tasting great! Atmosphere: Indoor and outdoor seating. Service: excellent. Food: very good. Just don't make your customers wait 1/2 hour for their reservation.

We started to go to Piatti about two years ago, after reading the outstanding reviews. It started out great, but has clearly decided to rest on it's past laurels. The final straw was when we took out-of-town friends there for dinner on a Friday night (on the late side). The place was extremely noisy, and the service was terrible. We were basically ignored for 45 minutes (yes, they did give us bread), including that we had to chase down the server to order our food and drinks. She did so in an almost hostile way, and got part of the order wrong. After an hour, after asking one of the other staff what was up, the food arrived lukewarm (it must have been sitting). The quality was blah, and certainly not worth the wait. That will be our final visit.

We live in AZ and visited this for lunch during our girls trip in August. We sat outside in the garden area and it was beautiful. I ordered the margarita pizza and my vegan niece ordered the vegan pizza. Both were super good and the first time I finished a whole one! I believe it was a 10 inch pizza but still, a lot for me. My sister had the angel hair and loved it too. Now fast forward to Sept. We went to San Diego and picked this place for my birthday dinner. Night and Day. First Italian restaurant I have been to that charges you for bread. Then the waiter asked if we wanted apps when we said no, he chirped great! We had to wait 45 minutes for a table so it was getting late and I am sure he wanted to go home but we had been traveling all day and caught a sunset cruise so by 8:30 we were tired and hungry too! I ordered the pizza again to be easy and it was terrible. It was so over floured and not cooked all the way. I ate like one slice and took the rest home, which I did not finish. We didn't feel very welcomed to begin with so I wasn't about to ask them to cook it more. My hubby ordered the ravioli. It was good but extremely small portion. I don't think I will be back after that last visit.

I really can't see how Piatti gets to be in the top three restaurants in La Jolla. The place is bright and noisy and clearly popular with the botox set. The wine list is reasonable, and not overpriced, and service was brisk but unfriendly. The problem is the food. Everyone around me had ordered pasta and seemed to be loving it, but we went for the entrees section of the menu. As for the starters, the calamari was OK (nothing better) but the lettuce in my salad didn't look or taste fresh. Main courses: my wife's veal piccata was good but the meatloaf (recommended both in these reviews and by the server) was not. It was bland and over-salted, served with undercooked beans and overcooked mash, with huge portions not compensating for the quality. Desserts: affogato was OK (hard to screw up) and I must admit the tiramisu was good. The food, ambiance and service was far better at the Osteria Romantica across the road. Maybe I was unlucky (a sample of two meals isn't really representative) but I won't go back

Recommended by a friend. Italian food served was above average. Sat at a great garden table with nice ambience. Handmade pasta featured was great. Polenta appetizer with blue cheese and tomato sauce was great. We had a pizza and a pasta dish. Ice cream desert was good. Service was below average. We were still eating our appetizer when the bread was served with the dinner plates. We were rushed through the meal. Server knew the dishes well. We were told that the service and table was limited to 90 minutes, but the Drinks and appetizer were not served until 30 minutes. Meal was offered at 40 minutes. I couldn’t enjoy the great food with the proper time to taste the food and talk at dinner. This was our first time here. I would return for the food but not with a service time limit.

The food is so-so, at best. Service is OK, but not especially warm. Definitely, NOT good value for your money. The fact that we were asked to free our table before we had finished our meal is outrageous. The above evidences two facts: 1. Poor table management; and 2. Dollars and cents are more important than satisfied customers. Piatti doesn't realize they are in the "hospitality" business.

Sat outdoors to enjoy people watching on this pedestrian-only section of La Jolla Village. We got excellent recommendations from our waiter and enjoyed our dishes which were served hot and delicious. Choose their private outdoor garden for a more intimate dining experience.

We visited the San Diego area and planned ahead by making dinner reservations for every night of the week we were there. We booked a reservation at Piatti for 18 June at 7pm. We arrived a bit early (6:20) and we sat on a bench outside for a few minutes, because the reservation system said they were fully booked and I was was the one who was early. While waiting, two women walked up and said they did not have a reservation and were hoping to get a table for 2. They were seated immediately in the dining room. After hearing/seeing this, I walked up to the desk and let them know that I had a reservation, but was about 30 minutes early. I was told that they could seat us in the bar at a high top... we took it. I had the Cannelloni and my spouse had the Pappardelle. The pasta in the Pappardelle was a bit thick, which made me question if it was made fresh. The Cannelloni was average at best. The service was slow, but I think this was because we were seated in the bar side. There are better places to eat in the area, but the price was reasonable for what we were served. I'm not sure I'd go back though.

We stopped here for lunch as a family on my sister’s birthday. We did make a reservation since we were in a party of 6 and wanted to make sure we could dine in. The food was AMAZING and delicious. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and even ordered a second portion of the Polenta appetizer since it was so good. Every single plate of food we received was delicious and the service was delightful as well!

I've arranged our New Years Eve dinner for 9:15 at Piatti through Open Table. We had high expectations and although I'd prefer an earlier slot we decided to go for the available one even though it was late. When we arrived there at 9:00 pm restaurant was at dark completely with a note that it was closed because of Covid. I totally understand that under the circumstances but what I don't understand why we were not informed in advance. I've received a message only a day before that we would be charged if we don't show up on time. In conclusion, our New Years Eve was ruined. We could not find anywhere else to eat that night since it was already too late and most of the restaurants kitchens were closed. The ones we could find were not the good ones at all. Very disappointed, very frustrated.

Great atmosphere while dining outside for dinner in beautiful La Jolla. Food was fresh and prepared with care . We had the herbed polenta and calamari for appetizers . For dinner we had cannelloni with short ribs, veal and pork meatballs , hot salami pizza , wild mushroom rotolo, and the orecchiette - all dishes were amazing . Authentic and tasty . Service was attentive while keeping up with COVID safety precautions . Definitely recommend

Reserved on Open Table we were greeted and promptly seated. Place was already full at 6:15. This is a very noisy restaurant. Hearing impaired probably won’t care for. Wonderful service by our waiter. I had the Ravioli and they offer 2 sauces including a cream and red. Raviolis are quite large and I had 3 with one sauce and the other 3 with other sauce. I am still thinking of this meal one day later. It was fantastic. My husband ordered a special comprised of spaghetti with salmon, spinach, olives and capers. The salmon pieces were somewhat dry however. I had to agree. Prosecco brand they offer is quite good. Split a nice gelato for dessert. We would go back but 4 rating due to salmon and NOISE,

A Birthday celebration at Piatti was 4 stars! The missing star is because the patio heaters were not working effectively and it was a very chilly evening. Our party of 9 wore jackets during the entire meal. The 4 stars are based on the delicious food served at the right temperature and the great service. As another reviewer mentioned, the city of LaJolla made a wise decision by blocking off the street so the restaurants could expand their outdoor dining. Parking was easy to find on a Monday night.
