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!

No Effort Made for Valentine's Night.

Visited here on Valentines night and wished I had not done so, to be honest. It was valentines night but you wouldn't have guessed. It would have been so easy, (and profitable), to have come up with a Valentine Special Offer. Not even a single rose on the table and no atmosphere. Kids in the... read more

We had a delicious meal at La Piazza last Saturday for 18 people. Booked at very short notice having been let down by another establishment and the propietor was very accommodating at such short notice. Everyone was very satisfied with the two course early menu. We would certainly have no reservation in recommending this very pleasant restaurant, lovely atmosphere and... More

went here before going drinking recently and it was divine. A small family run business with delicious, excellent quality food, at a great price, served by lovely friendly people, in a quaint little cafe style restaurant. My husband and I will without a doubt be returning, and cannot recommend it enough, especially over the chain restaurants nearby such as bella... More

After walking around most of Blackpool looking for a meal which did not consist of something and chips and would not break the bank we happened upon La Piazza (Cedar Square - FY1 1BP). With only a few diners present we were in 2 minds but we were made really welcome by very friendly staff. The recommended wine was just... More

Second visit in 12 months (same weekend). Warm and pleasant welcome from the hosts. Lovely ambiance to the restaurant, despite there only being a few diners when we arrived. Very close to the Winter Gardens and 7 - 10 mins walk from the Blackpool Tower. Food is prepared to order, so you wait longer than most places but the food... More
