GREAT PIZZA

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

La Piazza al Forno is one of the best Pizza restaurants I have ever had. The thin crust and amazing toppings make me happy everytime I go. Their salads, and appetizers are wonderful too! We enjoy going for just a quiet dinner for 2, but we often take friends because we want to share this wonderful restaurant with them.

Stumbled across the restaurant while perusing antique shops in Glendale & we were pleasantly surprised & then found out it was featured on Triple D! Their pizzas are made in the Neopolitan style & cooked in a real brick, wood fire oven. My husband is picky about his pizza & can't stop raving about how flavorful it was. It's very... More

We went with friends and we all loved our food! It's a small, casual restaurant, and it's loud and vibrant. The food is amazing! We ordered the special pizza which had a "handle" stuffed with ricotta -- TDF. Everything is made with the freshest ingredients! Keep in mind that if you have a reservation, they still won't seat you until... More

We've eaten here several times over the past couple of years Its a small little restaurant with a limited, but delicious menu. We love the pizzas and pasta dishes . The caprese salad is a must; I think the mozzarella must be made locally. We've never had desert but the cheesecake looks marvelous. Good, friendly service but don't be in... More
