We enjoyed a lovely evening meal here with friendly atmosphere and great service. This is the sort of place you enjoy so much that it becomes a must-do for any future trips to the same town. The sharing platter of antipasti was tremendous. Calzones are mighty, and the house special items on the menu (e.g. Rigatoni La Piazza etc) were... More

Dear customer, First of all allow me to thank you for your positive comments on the service. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our food, however. We receive consistently good feedback on the quality of our dishes and the size of our portions. In fact, the reason why you saw so many half full plates being... More

First of all, great service! Nice, clean place, convenient location. Food looked and tasted very good - although I felt that my starter was slightly too greasy. Never mind, the main course - pizza - was delicious. I was unable to finish it off - a portion was large (that's an advantage) - and left a half of pizza on... More

My pizza was excellent as it always is, and being able of eating outside is always a pleasure, but what makes the difference at La Piazza is the Staff, Peppe and Teresa can always make you feel as welcome and covered in attentions as you can be. Thank you guys!

We were passing through on vacation and the little town was mostly deserted on a weekend but we decided to try this place and it far exceeded what we imagined we would get here. The dishes were very good and were generous portions, the dining area had some ambience, and the menu had plenty of options. Service was very good... More

We visited La Piazza on our first visit to Edinburgh as it was round the corner from the hotel where we were staying. The restaurant staff were very pleasant and we were seated immediately. We ordered Lasagne and Spaghetti Carbonara from the extensive menu. Both dishes were very good and large portions. We enjoyed our first visit so much that... More

This is the most beautiful restaurant; the food is to die for and it is now number one on our list for our regular shopping trips to Edinburgh. Try it and you will see and enjoy what proper Italian food looks and tastes like.

As walk ins, with no booking we were immediately welcomed, and seated within a very short time in this very busy Restaurant. All of the staff were fantastic, efficient and had a great knowledge of the menu and wines. The food was fantastic, in fact so good we ate there the next night. This is Italian food at it's best,...

We came across La Piazza whilst looking for a restaurant close to our hotel, the Haymarket Premier Inn and we were very impressed. The welcome was warm and sincere, the staff were genuinely interested in ensuring we had an enjoyable evening, without being intrusive, and we all agreed the quality of the food was excellent. I had the Tortellino Della... More

Yummy meal! I got it with chicken and everyone thought it was the best meal on the plate! For dessert I would recommend the fruit and ice cream. What a delicious treat!
