Amazing food service and price. It's our third year in Portugal for our holiday and although staying nearer Loule travelled twice to eat at La Piazza and wasn't disappointed. Service excellent as always and food beautiful with a great choice. Advise to reserve table on Friday & Sunday when Vernon sings while you eat as very popular. Can't wait to... More

The food is excellent at La Piazza. It's far superior to any Italian restaurants we have been to in the UK. The service is very good and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The resident singer, Vernon, is very entertaining despite the fact he has his 'own style'. We have been to the restaurant tonight and enjoyed Rack of Lamb... More

Been coming here over many years and it never changes. Food always excellent, lovely atmosphere great service and reasonable prices. It is on the tiny little main st in Santa Barbara de nexe so parking isn't the easiest, but well worth the effort.
