The kind of place for a quiet dinner in a serene environment with soothing music in the background. Be assured of being accommodated regardless of weather you are in for a meal or coffee with a friend especially in the evening.

Located in the quiet Nakasero area this is my ideal place for relaxation. I like the food and the service with a personal touch. The place is very clean everywhere, parking is there and secure. The multi layered juice makes my day perfect at Piato. Keep it up!

It is a very nice restaurant with nice, quiet environment. The staff is friendly and polite and the food selection is large enough to accommodate all tastes. The quality of the food is better than average and definitely worth trying the tilapia in coconut oil.

I have visited this restaurant several times in the past and I have to say I love the serene environment. I've tried several restaurants in Kampala and this stands out. Their food is delicious. Good wine selection also. Always love the soft music. Will definitely recommend this.

This is a great place to eat, good variety of food to select from, good atmosphere and great service. Pricing is just slightly over what I expected but worth it. If you seat on the upper level next to the street expect traffic noise. I would return

This restaurant is large divided into smaller areas making it seem much more intimate. We chose to dine on the outdoor patio area and because of my concern of mosquitoes, citronella type candles were brought to the table. The menu is extensive and sure to please everyone. The restaurant has a separate bar area and has dining from breakfast until... More
