Piatti Sacramento: Welcome Back!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sunday evening, Andy and I had dinner at the newly remodeled Piatti Ristorante on Fair Oaks Boulevard in Sacramento. The restaurant (which had been closed for 4 months) has just reopened after a replacement of the flooring, ceiling, lighting, bar top and furniture.

Piatti has been a long time advertiser of and, but the staff did not know I was going to visit this time around. I say this because I want you to know we were delighted with a wonderful meal and greeted with fantastic service by our server, Chris.


I ordered one if my favorite dishes on the menu, the Pronti salad with grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, salami, chickpeas, olive, peppers and capers.

Andy tried the crispy skin half chicken with charred Brussels sprouts, bacon and three herb pan jus. I love Brussels sprouts, but I don’t ever remember them tasting that good. The chicken was exactly as advertised. Crispy skin and tender/juicy on the inside.

Andy and I shared a 1/2 liter of chardonnay from the restaurant’s “Barrel to Table” system of wines on tap. Through “Barrel to Table” wines are served through a custom tap and barrel system which eliminates oxidation and brings the freshest, highest-quality wine to the table using the most environmentally sustainable technology – no corks, foils or bottles.

The new head chef is Lance Carlini, formerly of Scott’s Seafood Grill and High Steaks steakhouse at Thunder Valley Casino. I can tell you the menu has not changed much, and many of the appetizers are exactly the same as before. To all my gluten-free/Paleo readers, I can safely say there are many of options for you, even though Piatti is well known for it’s classic pizza and pasta dishes.

On February 25th Piatti will be having a 20th Anniversary party. Proceeds from the event will benefit Assistance League of Sacramento. Come down for the great food, wine, beer, cocktails and live music – it’s for a great cause! The event features a creative menu by Executive Chef Lance Carlini, distinctive wines, craft beers, a special cocktail bar plus live music from Natalie Klempau & The Knockouts. You can purchase tickets here.
