Il Piatto Restaurant Review

: Il Piatto is a popular destination for diners looking for authentic Italian cuisine near the Plaza. Pasta dishes include the plump pumpkin ravioli served with toasted pine nuts and a butter-sage reduction sauce, while the prosciutto-wrapped river trout with sweet corn polenta blends savory and sweet flavors. Those more inclined toward the sweet side won't find a better tiramisu within a ten-mile radius; it’s beautifully presented and a lovely ending to any meal. Some of the entrées don’t fill out the large white piatti (plates), so consider the reasonably priced three-course prix-fixe menu. During the dinner rush, the white-clothed tables are dimly lit, making Il Piatto an enjoyably upscale but unpretentious date-night choice. Il Piatto features two happy hours, with early (4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.) and late (9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.) specials from its extensive wine list.
