Great Neopolitan style pizza

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... read more

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

A fun atmosphere in a nice area of Glendale. With trendy pizza flavors and soda's made with real sugar its a great place to gather with friends and enjoy some unique pizza. This is not your normal Italian pizzeria. Supposedly Guy Fieri was here for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Stopped here for something quick for dinner. We absolutely loved the pizza. Small place with big flavor. Fresh ingredients, great food, excellent staff. If you are in the area do yourself a favor and stop for a great meal in a laid back casual environment.

We were in Arizona and my kids and I love diners drive ins and dives so we looked up all the Arizona restaurants close to us. This one was 20 minutes away and the pizza looked great on Tv so we drove up. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. This place is a true dive, but... More
