Piatti Restaurant Review

: Contemporary Italian cuisine takes center stage, along with a modernized decor. Each table is stacked with a basket of warm focaccia, ready to be dipped into a garlicky mixture of oil and balsamic vinegar. If it's on the rotating menu, we suggest the veal and mushroom stew with gnocchi. House-made pastas have included pumpkin ravioli with goat cheese, crispy sage and pumpkin seeds; linguine with fennel sausage, clams and arugula; and penne with chicken, broccoli and tomatoes. Tiramisu adds an intense sweet finish to any meal. Seasonal patio seating is available for warmer months.
