Piatti - La Jolla
A tradition to many La Jollans, this Italian bistro serves fresh authentic regional Italian cuisine. A landmark Ficus tree takes up one corner of their very popular patio, but the bright and cheerful dining room is delightful during the day or on those chilly evenings when it's too cold to sit outside. The menu is presented in an innovative and creative fashion offering a wide variety of pastas, pizza and grilled items. In addition, you may find many vegetarian and health conscious dishes. Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday and includes specialties such as Uovo Benedetto (Eggs Benefits served on grilled polenta with basil hollandaise) along with omelets and breakfast pizzas.
We have been going here for years. It is great for any occasion -- meeting friends, my mother-in-law's 90th birthday, a romantic dinner for two, you name it. The service has always been fabulous and the food is wonderful. Don't be afraid to try the patio.
We were a group of 8 and we all loved it. Very good food and service. We sat on the patio, and it was very nice. We were travelling and meeting friends and had an 18 month-old with us and it was no problem either (she is well-behaved).
Piatti is a great place to be at. The food is always great. The only thing i dont enjoy about this place is that it's ALWAYS busy which means it's very noisy. If you plan to come to this place make sure to make a reservation a day in advance
The Restuarant was a little hard for me to find, but once I got there I knew it was worth the wait. We were about 3 minutes late to the Restuarante but once we got in all i had to do was say my name and i was seated imediatly all ready for me.
We went here for me and my girlfriend's 4 month anniversaty. It was very clean and very well decorated I was feeling a Venis Italy vibe at least that what I felt it was like. After being seated we were serviced emediatly. We asked what he recomended for and appitiser. He was very well informed on every thing and not more than a minute after we ordered the appitiser was on the table i was amazed. Seriosly that was the fastest I had ever been served an appitiser before and i think thats the way it sould be. Oh and before we ordered the food we had some sort of toasted bread with a signature dipping dish that was excelent i really loved that. Once we got our food which was very soon after the appitiser was off the table. My Girlfriend Jessica Said it was undoubtably the best Italian Food That She has Ever Had I'm More hesatant to say such things but thinking back no other Italian Restuarant that i have eating at has not come even close to the taste of that food I Had a spaghetti type pasta with chicken and increadable seasoning I wish i could pronounse the name of the dish but it was much better than I had Exspected and Very Reasonably priced my dish and Jessica's was around 15 for the plate. I would have payed douple for a dish like that, and be well satisfied. It's been Two Days senses we went there to the one in La Jolla and i can't wait to go back it was well worth the drive i came from Murrieta, Temecula, Area.
My wife and I try to visit Piatti in La Jolla every chance we get. Located just a few blocks from the beach in a very quaint part of La Jolla, Piatti's dining is just terrific. Their outdoor dining is also very nice, with white lights lining their trees, candlelights on tables, very peaceful environment, etc.
Their fresh-baked bread and balsamic vinegar/olive oil dip is a favorite of ours. Our kids love their pastas and pizzas, and my wife and I love their seafood with fresh steamed veggies, and some of their more traditional dishes as well.
Some of the best Italian food anywhere. Price is fairly reasonable, ambience is great, somewhat kid-friendly; great place to dine when in/near San Diego, CA.
