Description: Benvenuto, This is La Piazza Italian Restaurant in Blackpool, we have kept the same principles of running our restaurant that made us a local favorite over 25 years ago. We are an authentic family run restaurant and every member has actively contributed to its life at some point. We are proud of our Italian heritage and aim to provide the best and freshest ingredients cooked with real Italian flare. Almost everything is made fresh to order here, we are not a chain, nor do we aspire to be. So if you feel like a Spaghetti alla Carbonara without bacon or Pollo Cacciatore without mushrooms, no problema! We encourage you to join us in the true Italian experience, as if you were in an Italian casa. Ask your friendly waiter about a bottle of Chianti or Pinot Grigio, enjoy a true Italian birra, why not order an antipasto with Garlic Bread before your main meal, we make our Tiramisu and other desserts right here so don’t be shy to give it a try. Finish your lunch or dinner with an enjoyable espresso or cappuccino, accompanied by a smooth Vecchia Romagna or Amaretto with ice? Please feel at home, enjoy the food we have enjoyed cooking for many years, and enjoyed eating for many more! Feel free to let us know if you have any questions about the menu or suggestions for the future. Grazie e Mangiamo!

My daughters took me here for a pre show meal which was my birthday treat. We viewed the menu and looked inside and it was busy so we thought this was a sign of a good place to eat. How wrong we were. We got a garlic bread to share for starters which was good. My daughter ordered calazone which... More

Whilst spending a busy weekend in Blackpool, we had an hour to kill so decided to explore away from the Promenade and happened to stumble across this lovely little Italian restaurant. Not generally ones for chain Italian restaurants (which can be over-priced and lack the individual touches on traditional dishes), we fortunately booked a slot before the "Switch-On" and were...

Fabulous restaurant, gorgeous food , authentic Italian served by Dominique. Brilliant service very welcoming. My husband and I loved it. Our daughter Bonita loved her pizza and our son Marco enjoyed his tasty Spaghetti Bolgnese. They also liked their ice cream treat at the end- Thank you! Definitely go there again.

Booked this restaurant as we were going to see Mama Mia. They didn't appear to know about our booking but there were free tables. After about 10 minutes the waiter came across and asked if we had the menus. As he hadn't given them to us we didn't. He brought them to us and we ordered some drinks. After another... More

Surly owner, small portions, undercooked pizza base. Avoid this place at all costs - poor even by blackpool standards.

We had an excellent meal and the owners made us feel very welcome, talking about the people who had visited their restaurant whilst appearing at the Grand theatre, just across the square. An authentic Italian restaurant with a good atmosphere We will certainly be going back when we are in Blackpool again.

Found this place after being told Bella Italia had no tables, I'm glad they didn't! Lasagne very tasty and my 5 year old son ate his portion up straight away. My husband said his pasta dish was delicious and tomato garlic bread was fab. Good service and lovely atmosphere, wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Maybe we went at a bad time as other people rate this place much better than me. Ive been to much better places and wont be going back next year. On a positive note the... More
