4.5 Stars -- Very Friendly Mom and Pop Upscale Italian -- is that a contradiction in terms??

Jose and Maria own this place, he is Mexican and she is Italian. Been there three times in the last year, twice mid-day before they normally open (opening is 4:00pm) and as we presented as hot, thirsty and worn out cyclists Jose, who rides also, let us in and treated us royally. The food is... read more

Good flavors, overcooked pasta. Nothing special. If you are staying in Cloverdale and don't feel like driving, this will work.

We heard about this restaurant the evening we arrived in Cloverdale. Our dinner was so good and reasonably priced that we made sure to go back a second night on our 3 night stay. The red snapper was incredible and the veal awesome!!! If that doesn't tell you how much we loved it...nothing will.

Nice ambiance, attentive waitress(owner), food was above par, but not the best I've had. Reasonable wine list. Everyone in my party enjoyed their dinner and dessert with no complaints.

We were given a discount coupon for Piacere from the Inn where we are staying. Usually, I do not go to a place because of a coupon because I feel that if they are good enough on their own, that they do not need to give things away. But, we had read good reviews about the restaurant and decided to... More

What a wonderful surprise. Small family owned (Jose, chef, and his wife, Maria, manages the dining room and actually waits on tables too!) Italian restaurant on the main street in Cloverdale. Every dish we ordered was fresh, homemade, and delicious. We ordered the Veal Piccata, Fettuccini Alfredo, Tortellini alla Romana, Fried Rock Shrimp, and the House and Ceasar salads (dressings...

Good food and varied menu. Good wine list. Bit tight between the tables so you kinda feel like you're at the same table with strangers. Don't divulge any secrets or talk loud; the whole restaurant will hear it!

Cloverdale is not a huge town but there are several decent restaurants so why drive on if you are staying in the area. We chose Piacere on a Friday night. It is upscale in the sense that there are nicely decorated tables, silverware etc. But mom and pop in the way of Italian cooking. The service was welcoming and the... More

I thought about the title of this review being, "What took so long.." as we pass through Cloverdale frequently. We stopped on this night and had a fabulous meal. I long for a Bolognese sauce from my Italian family as a kid. Here, we hit it. I had the Spaghetti with Bolognese and it was absolutely wonderful. My wife had... More

there are not many restaurants in Cloverdale and we were glad we chose this one. At first glance you would not think the food would be good. We were surprised to find that it was. It is a a good size menu.
