Piatto dinner selections were adequate, but overpriced for what was served. Each Entrée was served without any accompanying vegetables or potatoes. Bread was extra, spreads for the bread were also extra and each vegetable was extra. All in all, meal was average, but the prices were well above average.

We were expecting an upscale dining experience but were somewhat disappointed. Nice atmosphere, service started off good, but server never asked how our food was, which is such a basic part of being a server. Cocktails, although good, were tiny and way overpriced. Food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Comment most heard at our table was food... More

Okay, so I stole the title. It applies to Piatto now, though. It definitely is winning the race as it has evolved into a first-class Italian restaurant with a very nice atmosphere to boot. Highly recommended.

Main course was pleasantly delightful but portions were very small for the cost. Bread was extra and the dipping sauce was an over embellished can of tomato paste. ... very bland in flavor!! Most likely won't go back; we will go to carrabas

The management staff assisted greatly with our visit. They made recommendations over the phone for their desserts, as well as other local venues in downtown Carlisle, before I even came to the restaurant. They also assisted with placement of our party by the cozy and beautiful fireplace. The lighting and the environment gave a great ambiance to the setting. The... More

Piatto provides excellent food and service. The wine list though not large provides an excellent variety of interesting and quite good wines. If in Carlisle it's a stop you must make.

Trattoria Piatto would have received TOP marks but for the "a la carte" approach on EVERYTHNG including the bread. We ordered the "Salumi" plate and though the meats were delightful, no Italian would think of having cold meats without bread. No Italian restaurant I ever visited in various regions of Italy charged extra for their bread. While the bread we... More
