Tucked in the heart of Montecito’s charming upper village, Piatti Ristorante is a gathering place both inviting and versatile for any celebration, including weddings, bridal showers and engagement parties. There are three dynamic dining areas each conducive for hosting a unique affair from an intimate rehearsal dinner to a cocktail party for 100 guests.
“The Patio” is reminiscent of an Italian Café with its tile floors and traditional trattoria style tables. The canopied dining area accommodates 70 seated to 110 standing guests year round; and sits adjacent to a seasonal live creek under gigantic eucalyptus trees.
“The Dining Room” is suitable for quaint affairs up to 32 guests. It homes a cozy fireplace and showcases a true culinary experience with an area overlooking the excitement of the bustling open kitchen.
Located off of the dining room, the al fresco “Island” is ideal for fair weather events. Seated banquet-style, 24 to 30 guests may be comfortably accommodated under the stars.
A commentary of ‘Piatti’, Italian for ‘plate’, wouldn’t be complete without discussing its delectable dishes. Two popular menu items are the Grilled Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes & Basil Butter and the Baked Chicken with Balsamic Glaze & Watercress – each beautiful plate bursts with flavorful ingredients at a comfortable Italian Trattoria price.
