We recently visited La Piazza with a Groupon. I ordered the Chicken Parmigiana and it was delicious !!!!! Great sauce !!!! The place was cozy, and the waiter was attentive and pleasant. I found them in Groupon again, and plan to return very soon !!! I am not sure what people expect with a groupon, but this was definitely a... 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

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
