I had the Pesto Chicken Lasagna. I enjoyed the sauce but I thought the chicken was lacking. The service was OK. I went at lunch time. My friend had a pizza & thought it was wonderful.

Four of us each had different items and all were very pleased. Service was excellent. We went early (5:00) and did not wait. By the time we were done there was quite a line. Well worth the wait!

I saw La Piazza al Forno on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives a few months ago. I was coming to the Glendale area to visit a friend, so I put this restaurant on my list. I'm from N.J. and the owners are from N.J. I brought my friend here at lunch time and we shared a white pizza. It was delicious.... More

La Piazza al Forno was a restaurant my wife discovered online in preparation for our trip to Phoenix. It was exactly what we expected charming and no pretentious with great food! We had the margherita pizza and it was easily the best I've had. Crust was perfect and ingredients were fresh. The service was also great, and amazing considering how... More

I go here almost every week and they have the best pepperoni pizza ever. Go there do it, do it. Better than any place.

Always tasty and delish. Can't beat the pizza as well as the entree dinners. Phenomenal. The service is great. Small and cozy and they make you feel like one of the family. Don't miss out on this great Glendale establishment.

Finding good, fresh, relatively healthy food in an independent restaurant in Glendale isn't easy and so I was especially glad to find this wonderful local pizzeria. Neapolitan style pizza is my favorite and the ingredients and the crust are key. It's all about quality, and my Margherita was very good. Tasty, thin crust was nice and toasty, with great sauce...

I live close by, and was excited to try this place. I ordered takeout, and was very disappointed. The salad was small and boring, the calamari was chewy and over-fried, and the meat lasagna, which I was craving, tasted gamey (not a good thing). Worst of all was the zeppoli. They were soggy, and tasted like they were fried in... More
