Description: Piatto is a gathering place centred around a passion for fine food, fabulous wines, friends and family. Check out the little gems we've come across—diverse wines from across the globe, authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizza, coffee and fabulous desserts—all in a casual atmosphere and with reasonable prices. In our world, authenticity is big. Our pizzaiolo use ingredients and procedures regulated by the Italian governing association (VPN)—so you experience a "true" pizza like you would find in the energetic pizzerias in Naples, Italy (but without the airfare).

“Best pizza in Halifax”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

Great pizza, wood fired and lots of choices. Ambience is interesting, modern but nice. More room and better pizza than Morris East.

“Good pizza, smaller salad portions”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

My husband and I dined here early September on a Thursday evening. We did not have reservations, but got a seat within a five minute wait. We love "pizza Margherita" since having it in Italy a few years ago, and saw that this spot advertises being "authentic" in terms of its' pizza. We ordered a salad to share, as the waitress told us it would be large enough. We found it to be rather small - a goat cheese salad...Barbabietola something...so my husband got another salad, a Cesare. Both were fine, but nothing to write home about.
The two pizza's we tried (11") were Margherita, and one with pepperoni. We did enjoy the Margherita, but didn't find it to be "amazing". The pepperoni, we did NOT like, as the pepperoni on the pizza was too thick, and we didn't like the taste of it. We both liked the crust on the pizza very much.
The house wines were nice, and the service was friendly. We didn't finish our meals, and when we told our server why - (did not like the pepperoni), a complimentary dessert was offered. We turned it down, but felt the server was both very genuine and considerate.
We will return mainly because of the service, and give this spot another try in the future.

“Fell short of our expectations”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

This time last year we were eating pizzas all over Italy so when we heard a VPN certified pizzeria was coming to Halifax we were excited to try it. Unfortunately the pizza fell short. The big thing was that the crust was soggy and undercooked. Secondly, the pepperoni used tasted like Brother's extra hot and did not fit the Italian taste. Customer service was excellent and after our meal a young lady asked for our opinion and was very quick to offer a complimentary dessert.

“Piatto Pizza a Plus”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

You know that a place is good when there's a line up to the door late into the evening at a restaurant. We didn't have to wait long for a table (without reservations). Lovely big open view of the pizza oven. We started off with generous and fresh salads. This being a pizza place, we ordered 2 to share between 3 of us. Excellent and enough for a doggie bag too. The staff was warm and friendly. The place was full of happy people. Families. Couples. Girls night Out. I bet it's even busier on a cold night in Halifax. Close to the waterfront and a hop/skip/jump to The Westin.
