Photos: Piatti restaurant and Las Patronas celebrate 25 and 70 years at La Jolla party

To celebrate Piatti’s 25th anniversary in La Jolla Shores and Las Patronas’ 70th year of community service, a massive party was held at the restaurant on Avenida de la Playa, the evening of Feb. 25, 2016. Event proceeds will benefit the work of the women’s philanthropy group and La Jolla Shores Business Association.

Of the restaurant’s success over the last quarter-century, Piatti manager Tom Spano said: “It is difficult to narrow it down to one thing, but if pressed, I would have to say it’s the consistency of everyone involved. The food is consistently prepared, the staff consistently cares and are happy to be here, and our guests are also consistent. We’ve developed many dinning relationships into family relationships.”

The party generated $22,000 to be shared by Las Patronas and the La Jolla Shores Business Association.
