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!

An enjoyable visit and we will return

We called in 'on spec' and really enjoyed a lovely meal at La Piazza. The owner was attentive, humorous and friendly. The food was hot and plentiful and the house wine was good. We just enjoyed a pleasant and relaxing time here. As I said, the attentiveness of the staff, especially the owner, means... read more

Visited this restaurant on Friday 27th March before going to see Peter Kay's car share and can't praise it highly enough - the food was lovely and the service was superb and therefore cannot understand how it could have gone so drastically downhill overnight to Saturday when "Duped" visited - I can only speak from the personal experience of myself,...

I cannot square my experience of this restaurant with the compelling reviews I read on here. As soon as I sat down I knew it was a mistake. However, constricted by politeness and the effusiveness of the elderly owner, I did my best to ignore the dirty menus, dirty tablecloth and food encrusted cutlery. The food was mediocre at best,...

Miserable rainy Sunday afternoon, not much open, then I stumbled across a little Italian place tucked in the corner of Cedar Square. I was the only customer (for about 20 minutes) and the welcome was warm and genuine. The food (I had scampi provencale) was prepared freshly from scratch, and served with a flourish - absolutely delicious. The home-made tiramisu... More
