Success! Thanks for posting your review of Piattini. You’ve done the world some good today.


Food was just ok but was by far outweighed by the terrible service. Will never go back and recommend

Disappointing from our first step through the door.

We selected this venue for small plates based on the location, calling in advance to make reservations for later in the night. As we were seated by the door (on the coldest night of the year yet) we inquired if there might be another more comfortable table available only to hear the staff mumble ""you're lucky to even get a table"". Not about to let a rude remark get in the way of our dining experience, we proceeded ... view more

cute place, good food....BAD service

we were very disappointed with this place, because it could have easily been one of our favorite places to eat. from the minute we entered the place, our waiter was cold and rude. maybe he was just having a bad day? we initially felt rushed, our waiter even told us that he had a reservation in 1 hour and a half for OUR table. (the place was relatively empty and it was a tuesday night, so we didn't understand why our ... view more

Fine food- my Ivy Villa!

Recently dined here with my husband this past! The food was inexpensive and delicious! We had the house special eggplant with smoked mozzarella, so yummy!!\r The wine list was great, a lot to choose from under $35 a bottle and the waitress was delightful.\r The Ivy decor on the wall out back reminded me of a Villa in Italy. Dont walk run... you will love it!

Poor management response to a poor dining experience

Our first experience at Piattini was for drinks only. We stopped in for a glass of wine and, based on our positive experience, we decided to return at a later date for dinner.\r \r Several months later we did just that. My meal (pasta bolognese) was quite good but, unfortunately, my partner's chicken dish was not. Every restaurant has an off night, but what made this particular evening such a disappointment is that o... view more

Great Lobster Ravioli and Wine List

I have been to this Piattini location a few times, and it is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. It is not too chi chi, but you still get a great dinner in a cute atmosphere. I absolutely love the lobster ravioli. I have never had to wait for a table, and the wine list and wine pairings are great. I think the portion sizes are appropriate, as are the prices.\r \r One warning, I have been to the other Piattini l... view more

Cute patio area, but horrible quality

This review is for my experience during lunch. I can't review dinner, b/c there could be different waitresses and a different menu. I understand that Newbury street is supposed to be overpriced, but I honestly could have made better food myself. I don't usually expect much out of an affordable, middle range meal but this was horrible! The chicken i had with my pasta was extremely overcooked, and lead me to believe th... view more

Delicious food, but noisy and crammed...

Tried Piattini for the first time... Both my boyfriend and I thought the food was terrific. I had the spicy shrimp salad and he had chicken w/ fontina cheese (we didn't try the small tapas dishes) and both were very delicious! I wouldn't say this place is 'inexpensive'... the pasta entrees are at least $16. But I think the prices are fair for the quality of food. The thing I didn't like is the atmosphere and the smal... view more

I stumbled upon Piattini one day while walking along Newbury...after one experience it became my favorite restaurant. It is so romantic and relaxing, especially during lunch. At night it does get crowded but the atmosphere created is quite nice. The food is not expensive but it is delicious, and the amount they give you is just enough. It tastes like home cooked italian food, better than anything I have had in the no... view more
