We had heard about the restaurant thru Triple D Tv show. I have to say their review was correct! It is so good. Authentic pizza and a friendly, family atmosphere.. Sandy was our server and she was so nice in helping us pick a wine and telling us what pizzas she liked. We got the Italian Stallion and the Salvatore.... More

Very nice updated place in old Glendale business district. Great pizza. Enthusiastic service. Several items on wine list not available, highly recommended if you like thin, brick oven pizza

i have been missing out in my life by not trying this place sooner. rivals pizza bianco's for fresh hand crafted pizza and much easier to get to and in to. small place which i imagine can get very busy, but had no problems the 3 times we went. this reminds me of the pizza my dad got us back...

A very cool place. A lot of the Cincinnati Reds broadcasting crew like this restaurant during Spring Training. Not a fancy restaurant in old downtown Glendale. The beer is very cold and the food is excellent.

We had lunch here on a recent visit to Glendale. This restaurant was within walking distance of our B & B, The Gaslight Inn. Realizing it was reviewed on Triple D, and based upon local recommendations, I had the Margherita Pizza, which I must say was as fine a thin crust pizza that I have had. It was baked in... More

This is a restaurant that has been certified by authorities in Italy that their pizza is authentic. It's amazing pizza. Thin, airy crust, lightly charred in the wood-fired oven. Try any of them but my favorite is the Italian Stallion with spicy to mild meats. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G pizza. Run, don't walk, to La Piazza al Forno. You can also try the... More

My wife and I drove from Scottsdale to try out this great pizza place in Glendale. We had the deep fried ravioli for an appetizer which were excellent. We also each had a different pizza. The pizza was excellent as well, with thin but perfectly done crust. The toppings were fresh and plentiful, an excellent choice for pizza in Phoenix.

Anytime we are in the Phoenix, AZ area, we make sure to stop in Glendale for an amazing pizza at La Piazza! We first heard about it on Diners, Drive-In's and Dives and we just can't get enough. We have always had great service and great food. They also have something called Spaghetti Pie and that is my son's favorite... More

This place has wonderful food. I first saw it on DD&D and tried it. The food did not disappoint. The two reasons I only gave it 3 stars is the pizza is served on a plate that makes the bottom soggy almost instantly. A metal tray with holes like LGO uses would be better. And, the service is mediocre at... More
