Next to the Aubar and near a tram stop, this is a fine up-market Italian restaurant, and they do pizzas! I had a Bufalina (buffalo mozzarella and) one and it was spot on. Usual Italian beers available too and, if it's not raining, you can sit outside!

Returned to La Piazza again after my first visit with my wife a few months ago.. Food great as usual, excellent service. We were there for lunch and it was very busy, we were sitting in the terrace outside and had the business lunch which was excellent! I will return again and would highly recommend this restaurant!

First visit to La Piazza for some time, and it was excellent. Service, choice, quality of food all done to a high standard. Many choices of Risotto and Pasta dishes that are a bit more unusual & special compared the the normal fare offered elsewhere. Highly recommended.
