Have passed by this restaurant very often but gave it a try with a Groupon. The inside restaurant is warm, cozy. Wait staff were very attentive and not at all troubled that we were using a Groupon, (some restaurants seem irritated when they hear Groupon, even though they signed up for it.) We ordered a salmon dish, with shrimp and... More

For my birthday, this Italian wanted a good old fashioned Italian meal in a comfortable place that was close by. We have been to Ridgewood many times in the past 28 years, living in the adjoining town but this was our first visit to La Piazza Bistro. We both loved it. The curse of being Italian and then eating in... More

Second time we've been there.....menu is fairly standard NY/NJ Italian fare with some interesting appetizers, but the specials are always worth checking out. Food is well prepared and served by wait staff that is attentive and not pushy. Worth a return trip with or without a groupon.

We arrived at La Piazza Bistro on a Friday evening, only to find a dark and empty restaurant. Over time, the place began to fill up with first timers such as us, all using Groupons. Although the staff was very "proud" and attentive, they seemed to miss the mark on every aspect of our dinner. I knew something was up... More

we went there with a groupon. as soon as we indicated we had the groupon, we were informed that the menu was "limited" and the groupon only applied to certain items. the service was attentive, but the food mediocre. All told, the cost for this meal was far more than it was worth.

We tried this restaurant because of a Groupon that we bought. We went early on a Saturday night and so it was pretty empty when we first arrived. The waitress (and I think owner) was lovely and provided a nice atmosphere. The food was very good and we will definitely return here. I had the tilapia and my husband had... More

We found this little place with a GROUPON. The place is small, the décor tasteful but not exciting. The service was thoughtful and attentive. The menus was extensive. The value with the GROUPON was excellent: without the GROUPON it would have been average. The food as excellent with portions slightly on the smallish side. The list of "specials" was presented...

My husband and I went to this restaurant with a Groupon. The place is small seating between 40 and 50 guests. We both had an appetizer, entree and dessert. I didn't find anything I cared for on the appetizer menu, so I opted for a Cesar salad and my husband had the lobster bisque special. The portion size of the... More

My husband and I had a Groupon for this restaurant and we were pleased with both the food and the service. The mussel appetizer was very good and the calamari, while a bit tough had a delicious sauce on it. The veal was tasty and the salmon was cooked perfectly. We did find that the prices for the specials were... More
