I Love Piati – I used to work in the Village and personally I think this is one of the best restaurants. The staff is always super friendly, and the food is great. I am a special fan of their Happy Hour too! Super great deals on all the best food (no big entrees). Their caesar salad actually comes with anchovies, which is kind of rare these days, and their calamari is delicious (in fact I think I like the fried broccoli better than the squid). Their drinks are all great, although I usually stick to the wine.
I always love eating at Piatti – Considering I'm on a budget I am very particular about where I choose to spend my cash when I'm treating myself to a meal.
I LOVE Piatti.
The ambiance is welcoming, warm and a little bit romantic. I've always had great experiences with the staff.
I typically sit at the bar. There is a bartender who I am always happy to see when I go in, she is attentive, the perfect balance of conversational and giving space, she makes great drinks as well.
But the food... the food is wonderful. What I most appreciate (aside from the wonderful flavors... everything is delicious) is that they accomidate my special requests happily and with no problem. (Yes, I'm that annoying person who would like this on the side and please sub this... at least I tip well for the trouble, okay?) If you simply ask what your options are for trading side dished, substituting items and things like that they have always been great about it. You truly get exactly what you want, which I appreciate.
The only thing I am a little unhappy with is that they took away my favorite sourdough bread which comes with an herb bread. Now they serve a dense white bread and herb bread for dipping and I really wish they'd bring the old stuff back. Needless to say it isnt a deal breaker!
My thoughts on the food (I am no expert);
Love the Grilled Portobella Panini sub with Chicken
All of the pasta's except the Duck Ragu (which they may not have anymore... it wasn't good at all)
The pizza's are good but my fave is the Prosciutto
If you want soup get the Butternut one...
I salivate over all of their antipasti's especially the Gamberi though I wish it'd come with more (probably best that it doesn't though)
My absolute favorite salad is seasonal and its the Halubut one. Get it if its on the menu and you want something light but filling.
Things on the menu change relatively frequently so its always nice to get a new taste to try that is pretty much a guarenteed great dish.
Best Deal in Town – I wenrt to Piatti last night and was offered therir economic stimulus menu. What? Turns out they are doing theri part to offset gas prices by offering a killer four course dinner for only 25 dollah. After some sort of yummy veggie lasagna type appetizer, a caesar, seared sole in brown butter and gelato I was fat and happy. I'll be back next week to try some other choiceson that menu!
Great food! – The gnocchi is amazing! The pesto/marinara combo is absolute perfection and I love their bellinis. It's great for couples and families. It's also very affordable. I definitly recommend it.
Great food, romantic atmosphere, low price – A perfect place to go on a date. For a young couple on a budget Piatti is the best place in the city to go.
Literally Perfect! – My boyfriend took me out on a impromptu date to Piatti, and since I had checked citysearch minutes beforehand and only saw one $, I figured it was cheap and not to expect much. I was blown away... Ordered calamari, northwest berry salad, and a mushroom/ravioli dish for both, and all were delicious, unique, and very much worth it. Food came in great time, the waiter came exactly when we needed him, and the bill came to $52 - not bad. I would come here every week if I could!
best italian in seattle – This is our favorite Italian spot around Seattle - I see this other review & wonder if they went to the same restaurant? The food is by no means bland, it's awesome & great flavors! True Italian flavor, something which Seattle Italian restaurants lack. It's romantic & casual, love the fireplace area, the bar is sweet.. you must go. Who cares if it's in the U-Village.. it's on the outskirts & you'd never know it once inside. I know my Italian, and this is as one of the best.
Great service! Okay food... – If you want to go to a great looking place with excellent service, then try Piatti's! The food is a bit expensive for the small portions but the presentation looks nice. The taste is not the best because I found the food quite bland (I've tried many of their entrees before because of going in large groups). The service is great, very attentive and friendly!! I recommend making reservations but there is an 18% gratuity for parties of 9 or more. It is a nice first-date restaurant :)
Thumbs Up To Piatti Restaurant! – I ordered the Gnocci with Creamy Pesto, garnished with Marinara and Pine Nuts. I was a little hesitant at paying $11.95 for Gnocci, but they were truly fabulous (and this means quite a bit coming from somebody with Italian heritage!) The pesto was a lovely compliment to these soft and tender, perfectly cooked Gnocci. Also, the server was wonderful. He doted just enough to make the experience pleasant, anticipating our needs at right time.
Divine! – We unexpectantly found Piatti and what a blessing! The gnocci and ravioli are amazing. I haven't been there during the evening but their wine bar looks appealing. Plus, the decor is adorable!
