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.

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

Only positive experience, cheap and delicious food. Service was just great. This place seems to be a fast food chain for locals but it is totally different for international travelers. The menu is very extensive with a great variety. Be sure, you will not be hungry after this place.

Have been to this restaurant twice and can't fault it. The menu is extensive, the food is freshly cooked and everything is very reasonably priced.

The food was good or at least way above average. Drinks and deserts are really cheap. Service was average...sometimes fast sometimes slow. Some deserts might seem pulled out of the freezer and into the oven. Overall ok :)
