We offer gluten- free options for 90% of our menus and our room is warm and welcoming. Piattini is the creation of husband and wife team, Pete and Maggie Lukes. Us.jpg Pete was formerly the Chef and Owner of Terra Bistro, here in Albuquerque's North Valley since its opening in 1998. A graduate of the California Culinary Academy, Pete has had many years of experience both in the kitchen and running the business of a restaurant. He has worked for such notable Chefs as Hubert Keller and Roland Passot in their San Francisco restaurants. Maggie Lukes comes to the restaurant world completely fresh from having had a successful career in Interior Design and Architecture. Maggie is new to the restaurant world, but very enthusiastic about sharing in the business with Pete and welcoming people to Piattini.
