The environment is very nice and upscale compared with other restaurants in the area, while the prices are comparable to other such places. Service is nice, but not very quick and if you are a smoker they will give you a table across the rest-rooms.The quality and taste of the food is very good in all dishes we tried.

The kind of place for a quiet dinner in a serene environment with soothing music in the background. Be assured of being accommodated regardless of weather you are in for a meal or coffee with a friend especially in the evening.

Located in the quiet Nakasero area this is my ideal place for relaxation. I like the food and the service with a personal touch. The place is very clean everywhere, parking is there and secure. The multi layered juice makes my day perfect at Piato. Keep it up!

It is a very nice restaurant with nice, quiet environment. The staff is friendly and polite and the food selection is large enough to accommodate all tastes. The quality of the food is better than average and definitely worth trying the tilapia in coconut oil.

I have visited this restaurant several times in the past and I have to say I love the serene environment. I've tried several restaurants in Kampala and this stands out. Their food is delicious. Good wine selection also. Always love the soft music. Will definitely recommend this.
