    Fabulous cafe in the heart of Glen Waverley. One dish we ordered did not exactly turn out as expected. Also expected to be seated inside as we had booked prior

    9/10 because the pancakes were a little dry so I ordered some ic-cream on the side to help. Other than that I have no complaints. I have been to Bar Piatella a number of times before and will certainly be back again.

    Unfortunately meals (lamb shanks and ribs) were served on colder side. Over priced and disappointed. Waffles as dessert was ok although waffle was cold too. Service was great.

    A very well organised cafe with comfortable seating and great atmosphere. Not too noisy and three different seating areas. The food and drinks were well made and delicious. Prompt, friendly service, filling dishes and reasonable prices.

    Very loud area with lots of screaming children at night. This should be better regulated. Service was okay but drinks order was very late and crepes order was incorrect. We ordered just strawberries but got Piatella special with bananas.

    Good service. Delicious food but not cheap. Mains abt $28-39. Great looking deserts. Ordered the waffles - got 3 waffles with strawberries and ice cream for $16 -scrumptious and worth it as we shared between 3. Worth the $$ and highly recommend

    Dined for dinner with a friend. We shared the pulled lamb bbq board so we had enough room for dessert as I enjoy coming here for the just strawberries crepe - a must try for nutella lovers! Food was good & will return for the dessert crepes. Also had a lychee mojito cocktail which was good.

    I love this café, beautiful food, friendly staff , the only downside is it was very noisy and quite hard to talk at times. Would definitely go back though.

    I came here for breakfast - staff were attentive and friendly.. i gotta say the coffee was excellent - it very smooth. i could not find any fault, I was going to order another on the way out but didn’t have room in my belly. The food was nice -a tad pricey but the whole experience was worth it. Thank you Piatella

    Great restaurant, lovely food and ambience, they have a really nice selection of cakes in the front. Unfortunately I ordered the oreo and milo waffle today but was given the cookies and cream instead. It was excellent regardless, will just have to come back for my Oreo and Milo waffle I guess!

    My partner and I used to come here all the time but lately have not had the chance due to covid restrictions. We finally got the chance to take my partner's brother and girlfriend here and were so excited to bring them to one of our favourite places. Unfortunately it did not live up to our hype at all. Our waitress was so quiet you could never understand what she was saying and seemed to forget everything even after writing it down. But that was not the most disappointing part. The food was just not good. The pan fried gnocchi is now drowned in a mediocre sauce while it used to be beautifully crispy and flavourful. The spaghetti marinara had overcooked seafood and a bland sauce. The ribs were dry and the sauce was like they had simply taken barbeque sauce and loaded it up with pepper and called it a day. The only plus was the Parma was good so we mostly shared that, although if you mess up a Parma as a chef I would be a little concerned. As we left I asked if they had changed chefs recently and low and behold of course they have. It's always a bummer when your favourite restaurant is let down by one change. Unfortunately it's a pretty big change and a pretty big let down.

    Great place to see friends and be with family for dessert catch ups. I love their waffles and crepes as they're always delicious. It was great that we booked, otherwise we would have had to wait ages.

    Fabulous food and a good selection for a small menu! Waffles always amazing too and a great way to finish off a beautiful meal. Mood is great, not too loud, but a good energy inside and out

    We’ve been there twice. While we tried different menu both times, we kept one dish the same. I think they lack consistency. Our first visit had quite a better taste experience than the second visit. We found the food a little bit on the fatty side the second time. Overall, the place, service, taste of food was good and we’ll definitely be there again. This is not the cheap place to eat out, but they take enough care of food presentation and ingredient quality to make sure customers feel they are getting value for their money.

    Super friendly staff, best black forest cake ever, OMG! Had a great time. Will be back for sure. Next I will have the waffles. The smell, as you walk in, is to die for and I have had them there before. So yummy.
