I had the burger, which I was apprehensive about this menu item at first, as it sounds like it is a large slice of salami with meat around it.

This sandwich is beyond that and is immensely flavorful, juicy, and the perfect size as I did not feel bloated or that I had over indulged.

The side Caesar was also delicious.

We also had the Arancini and it was both crispy and soft as well as delicious.

Amazing food and ambiance. There was a small issue with my order, which was partly my fault as I was asking for topping substitutions. But that was remedied by the kitchen and wait staff super fast. Meal was delicious as usual.

I come from Italy and I’m here in Newfoundland to spend an year as an exchange student. The open view fire where the pizza was cooked reminded me of home: the pizza was a pizza I would perfectly eat in Italy at any nice pizzeria. The zabaione in the tiramisù was delicious. The atmosphere was cozy and the waiter that served us was very kind and had a nice attitude. I got up from the table after lunch 100% satisfied, as an after lunch should be! Will surely come back and recommend this to friends and family

We had a great meal - the only con is the server didn’t come back to refill our water glasses once we had received them. But food was reliably delicious and no complaints.

Food was fabulous, in fact it was probably one of the best times we’ve ate at Piatto, however, service was unbelievably poor. Served incorrect drinks, Our table was not checked back on despite the restaurant being not busy, we had to wave at the waiter to get her attention (who was standing behind the bar and appeared to be on her phone) to order more drinks. Removed food from the table before we were finished with it. Unfortunate service experience as we know this isn’t the norm.

The food was good, a little spicy for me but I'm not used to having much spices. My parents loved theirs. We all had spaghetti and meatballs. We arrived for 5:30. It was very noisy and the music was loud, so people were shouting to be heard, which contributed to the noise. Once it hit around 6:15, it got much more quiet. The music was turned down and lights turned down. So if you're looking for quieter, definitely recommend around 6:15 or later. The wait staff were very friendly and excellent at their service.

One thing to note, this place is not at all accessible if you have mobility issues or use a wheelchair/aid. The bathroom is located on the top floor.

Great service and good food but they ran out of gluten-free dough prior to our 7:30 pm reservation so our choices were limited.

We have been to Piatto's several times in recent months. Each time we have a wonderful experience. The service is very good, the food is delicious and just overall it is a great place for a meal.
They need to revisit some items on their dessert menu and bring back the zeppoles to add a citrus component or something with limoncello might be nice too.
We will be going back again soon.
Reservations are not a must, but on weekends especially, it would be recommended.

You have to try this pizza, specifically the 'Stephanie'
A local recommended this place and it was incredible. Thin crust and all of the pizza choices could be personalized. One of the male servers was so much fun. All of them were great.

Service was good as usual. Sat outside and had walnut salad to start as well as the piero pizza topped with arugula as well as the classic Margherita. Pizza was delicious. Thought we would have take a ways but we demolished them. Also the oil, chilli and accommodating us with our request for balsamic vinegar was appreciated.

I took my family that’s visiting from BC to the downtown location and they absolutely loved it. We had the aranchini, Caesar salads, olives, the spaghetti and meatballs as well as 3 pizzas and everything was to die for. Best food in town. Jason served us and he made us all feel welcome and read the table so so well. Always a pleasure to eat at Piatto downtown St. John’s.
