Came several times on Groupons

I must admit that the only reason we came was because of the Groupons, and we wanted to give the place another view. Nothing special in my opinion I'm sorry to say other than the outdoor seating in the warm weather,

12-26-14 wanted to give a 3 1/2. So I bought a Groupon before reading reviews after reading reviews I was hesitant but I figured I would go in and ask their opinion on what their best dish was and then I wouldn't go wrong. I asked the waitress who seemed like she may be the owner or play an important... More

Uncomfortable and unappetizing on every level. Portions were pitifully small after waiting an absurdly long time for our orders. Over cooked salmon drenched in rancid olive oil and vegetables marinated in garlic. Resembled rabbit food. Bread was stale and inedible. Seats are hard and place is drafty. Fuggedaboudit. Complete waste of time and money.

We enjoyed a nice dinner sitting outside at La Piazza. It was very good, and we enjoyed it. It’s very nice, when the weather is great in Ridgewood, to eat outside. My only complaint with eating outside here was that a lot of other customers brought their dogs to dinner, and having dogs continually sniffing at me while I was... More

nice little restaurant, located off the main street ( Ridgewood Avenue ) in Ridgewood, NJ....looks small from the outside, but very cozy and nicely decorated inside; food was very good, prices are reasonable, though desserts are overpriced. this is a BYOB, small liquor store about 2 blocks away. servers were very attentive and friendly.

After we bought a Groupon my husband checked the recent reviews. They were not good, so our expectations were not high. We sat outside on a Thursday evening around 6 PM and the place was empty. The owner, who many reviewers found rude, was very pleasant and welcoming. We both ordered the mozzarella with roasted peppers and found it good... More

After walking by La Piazza's inviting patio for a few years, we finally gave this place a try on a nice day when we could take advantage of the outdoor seating. Sadly, sitting down was the highlight of our visit. The bread they served was hot and fresh, but it went downhill from there. The famous "Mozzarella Della Casa" was... More

My veal marsala was skimpy with a very lemony sauce. My friends dinner was a special and was better than my entre. Both were over priced. The atmosphere borders on seedy with dirty windows.I will not go to this restaurant again.

First of all this was not our first time here so something had to have happened to make this place go so far down hill. To start we sat down and were told we had to place our appetizer and entree order together and they wouldn't take our order until we were ready with both. Then we ordered drinks and... More
