Had dinner here with friends. The food was really good. The service was great. We liked the small plates and that gave us the option to share.

Small but not overly so. Good food at a reasonable price for the upscale neighborhood. Consistent service and quality over several years.

So happy we stumbled onto this charming restaurant on Newbury Street. I can't say the outside look enticed me to come in, but we were cold and hungry and the menu appealed to us. We really enjoyed our simple lunch - meatball panini and a proscuitto, arugula, goat cheese and fig flatbread. There was a very nice selection of wines... More

We sought shelter here from the cold after our preferred tapas spot was closed for renovations. That's what we get for not calling ahead. But, we landed here and were very happy with the results. We ordered drinks to start, we'd suggest the Cranberry Fizz, but opt out of the Jack Frost which comes with a candy cane, and really... More

I organized a birthday celebration for my husband at Piattini for 12 people. They put us in a great separate space and kept us very happy... Shout out to great service from our waiter Max! The food was great, the drinks were awesome (the bartender, Rick??, was very accommodating and kept all of us in great drinks, wine and shots!)... More

Had a great dining experience at this small, yet intimate restaurant on Newbury Street in the Back Bay section of Boston. Our server, Jhon, was amazing! We shared a caesar salad and had scallops with linguini and veal marsala; both superb! Will definitely return the next time we are in Boston!

Popped in to Piattini after a spa day with some girlfriends, and it was the perfect spot to get out of the snow! Warm and inviting, with very friendly staff. A healthy sized basket of bread and tasty olive oil started the meal off right, and the Bosciola I ordered was amazing! We kept commenting on how the portion sizes... More

My husband and I went for dinner on a Thursday evening. The restaurant was small and warm. The staff was very friendly and we were seated quickly. Our server was quite personable and very attentive. Good selection of Italian wines. The flatbreads were wonderful and the pasta dish was perfectly al dente. On our yearly trip to Boston, we will... More

We ate here with my husband's family last week and everyone really enjoyed it. The food was flavorful and distinct. Do not miss the melanzane affumicate. The burrata was also very good. I ordered the scampi and it was perfect.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
