We sat in the courtyard on a wednesday which turned out to be live music night with a nice chap called vernon singing, and i quote "a bit of this and a bit of that" Although this was not the best singing we have heard it added to the nice atmosphere of the place. Anyway the food was really nice,... More

A great little restaurant offering wholesome Italian food - from pizzas and pastas to beautifully cooked and served fish and meat dishes. The staff are always so friendly and so enthusiastic about the food they serve. There is a charming courtyard where you can eat 'al fresco' on warmer evenings - but a large interior restaurant is also available Can... More

Stayed there during my holidays three times in their nice courtyard with a party of six.. Competent waiters who describe the daily specials in a nice way. Though the pasta and pizze were nice we took alway the daily specials. Sometimes live music - then you should make a reservation. Friendly owner, Signore Bucciero, invited us every time for a...

Having read about La Piazza at the villa where we were staying locally, we visited this last Monday evening for my wife's birthday. The venue was lovely, outdoors under a spreading tree in the courtyard, we were served by some very nice young English staff, ordering our meals at 2000. We enjoyed our drinks and nibbles, described previously here in... More

We've been coming to La Piazza for many years not least because it's close to where we stay, just outside Santa Barbara. La Piazza is family run and provides hearty Italian food. The restaurant is named after its wonderful courtyard set in the middle of the village. Sitting out under the trees, hanging vines and fairy lights on a warm... More

We had the pleasure of spending a few nights in this restaurant whilst staying in the local area with a group of girlfriends. On our second visit, even though out of season the owner had arranged for Vernon to sing and the whole night was filled with Singing, dancing and fantastic fun. The food was great but the service and... More

OK, there's some plus points and some minus. Lets go with the Pros first... I can't say how nice the Fillet Steak in Gorgonzola is, it is absolutely lovely. Soft, tender and succulent, packed with flavour, and well presented. A delicious treat. The staff... so friendly, extremely attentive - it was a pleasure to be served by such great guys.... More
