(Sacto Area) - Piatti in Roseville, small plates!

Bryan Harrell | Jan 11, 2005 12:49 PM

I prefer a few small plates for dinner, and usually haunt sushi bars and Japanese restaurants for small portions of top-quality food.
Lucky I was to find Piatti in Roseville has a 'bar menu' of great small plates. I started with raw oysters ($1.75 each) and got the last two ("Okay, give me all your oysters and nobody gets hurt," I told the bartender)and they were small and superb. Along with that I got some sort of gourmet organic spinach ($3) and a long narrow plate of beautiful tiny red beets in a blue cheese sauce ($5). Paired with this was a generous glass of El Dorado County Viognier ($6). For my next course I had the lamb and fennel sausage ($6) paired with an Amador County Barbera ($7?). The sausage was grilled, then cut up and put into a bowl so it could be easily eaten with a fork. Excellent! For dessert I had a tiny glass of some Pinot Gris dessert wine ($7?) and called it a night. Came to $40, and since the service was prompt and gracious, I left a $10 tip.

They also have a 'regular' menu with full size dishes made with locally grown ingredients. This is a wonderful restaurant in a small chain, and apparently they are all a little different from each other.
