Description: In the very heart of London, just steps from the madness of Leicester Square is Piazza, a very Italian restaurant in a very British location. A family run eatery for seventeen years, Piazza is renowned for a welcome which will transport visitors from the impersonal, crowded West End to a tiny Italian village. Traditional in every sense, from the green awning over the glass frontage to the simple white walls and dark wood furniture of the rustic interior, Piazza gives a sense of comfort even before the food arrives. On the menu, you'll find everything from authentic bruschetta, to great seafood, to deliciously fresh pizzas, and the most popular pasta dishes too. Surprisingly affordable, Piazza makes a wonderful pre-theatre stop-off, or, thanks to incredible lunch offers, a fantastic place to take a break between shopping and sightseeing.

My nan, mum and I visited after a Saturday matinee theatre showing. The food was fantastic (I'd recommend the pollo piccante in red pesto sauce), great wine reasonably priced (Pinot noir was lovely), prompt service without being overbearing and the price was extremely reasonable. I would definitely visit again.

Wonderful Service, very relaxed atmosphere, definitely go there... More

I came on a busy Saturday evening looking to sit outdoors as the weather was lovely. We were then informed that there was an outdoor courtyard area which was a nice surprise. No cars and buzzing with atmosphere. We ordered a delicious Mamma soup and Caprese for starters. For mains a bistecca sizzling straight from dish and a cod fillet... More

I popped in here with my partner on Thursday, I booked and normally the service is fantastic, but we sat down and the waiter asked what we would like to drink and we said give us a couple of minutes. We carried on chose our drinks from the list and even made our selections on what we were going to... More

My wife and I booked a table yesterday evening prior to a show and used Gourmet Society discount card. We were expecting normal West End overpriced and underwhelming food. We arrived 15 mins early and were shown immediately to a reserved table and were surprised, at 5.30pm to find it busy but not uncomfortably so. We both ordered mussels in... More

We were in London for the weekend looking for somewhere to eat lunch and just off Leicester Square we found the Piazza Restaurant. It was fairly busy, but we managed to get a table for 2 with no problems. The staff were very friendly and prompt with their service. We did not feel like we have to wait for anything.... More

I went with a friend using a tastecard offer. The restaurant is pleasant enough, but our order was taken wrongly and our steaks came out with the wrong sauce on. This would have been fine as we pointed it out and they took them away. But then the waiter came over and told us it was our fault! After much... More

The starters we had where very good, I had mushrooms and it was one of the best mushroom starters I have had for a long time. The main... More
