We opened Piatto in 1998 in order to offer Carlisle a traditional, authentic Italian dining experience. My staff and I share the goal of serving food that tastes great, is healthfully prepared and leaves you feeling refreshed and energized after dining. Our menus, which change often, reflect the use of traditional cooking techniques still prevalent in Italy, and are dependent on the availability of fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Several trips to Italy have given me an appreciation and respect for the cuisine. Each of Italy’s 20 regions has its own unique culinary tradition, but the common thread that unites them all is an emphasis on uncomplicated dishes that highlight the freshness and superior quality of the ingredients. This simple formula has, happily, seen a resurgence in recent years thanks to America’s renewed interest in real foods.
We have been shopping locally for ingredients over the last twenty years in Carlisle and have established many great partnerships with local farmers and purveyors. Combining these local products with the best available olive oils, cheeses, meats and pastas from Italy allows us to create a most authentic dining experience.
None of this would be possible without our great staff and our many wonderful guests who support our efforts to provide this unique dining experience.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all,
