Traditional. Must try. Good service.

In fact this is a place where many people are having lunch or dinner. Large dishes, good cooking, good service. Some deserts are very good. The pies are the best seller of this location. Youcan have them as starters or as main course. Nice location.

La Placinte is a chain of restaurants throughout Chisinau which offer Moldovan style dishes. Very clean, good prices and a huge menu of hot and cold dishes available. Standard of food is very high and staff are efficient. I note other reviewers comments about staff not having English however readers should remember this is Chisinau Moldova and not Paris or...

This was a great find in the middle of Chisinau. Lovely to sit inside or out. The décor inside is beautiful. Clean loos - very nice. Wifi. Food good but service is slow and they don't speak English. There is an English menu but the side orders often come as starters and not everyone in our party got served at... More

Nothing special except maybe for the extremely tolerant wait staff willing to help those who don't speak Romanian. Good beer cheap prices average food.

Reasonably priced Romanian food...the lunch specials at just 60 lei are a steal! Nice outdoor sitting area also...

I became a regular at one of the La Placinta restaurants during my month in Chisinau. It's a great chain to try Moldovan cuisine at, and they play national music instead of Eurotrash, which combined with the traditional uniforms gives it a very nice vibe. Always had very nice service, too.

It looks rather nice, the food is ok, but nothing out of the ordinary. I had the feeling that the pies were not freshly cooked, which for a place specialized in pies is not something to be proud of, i would say. Nonetheless, the food tastes good, and i will do for a lunch in Chisinau.

I have been to this restaurant and others of this chain many times, and they are always decent. The service varies from location to location, but is usually ok - not exceptional, but not horrible. They have some great drinks - lemonade, ice coffee and some others and their placintas (the acasa style) is great. Its a great place to... More

Large menu and friendly staff. We had a mix of typical Moldovan dishes, served promptly and with a smile. Certainly worth a visit.

La Placinte and Andys Pizza are owned by the same person (a guy called Oleg) and have similiar menus. The menu in La Placinte is more authentic Moldovan, offering plăcintă, dumplings, and borsh. Please be weary that just because it says 'pui' doesnt mean its chicken breast, Ive had to learn the hard way that they serve dishes with chicken... More
