As it did in 2001 to mark its 10th anniversary in La Jolla Shores, Piatti Restaurant paid tribute to its patrons by hosting a benefit for the charitable work of Las Patronas, but this time around, the celebration touted 20 years of serving Italian cuisine inspired dishes.

Some 325 guests crowded into the popular restaurant last Thursday night, seeming to enjoy the closeness — the mood mimicked a family reunion. In sum, they raised $18,000 for Las Patronas.

General Manager Tom Spano moved easily through evening basking in the compliments of guests offering comments like, “consistently excellent food,” “always fresh,” ‘’been coming here for years” and “tradition.”

Spano in turn credited Piatti longtime chef and hardworking crew, its suppliers, and the supportive community for its triumphs. A recipe for restaurant success if ever there was one!
