Nice place in town for good food.

Nice place to have good food; we ordered a seafood salad, some seafood soup and a pizza; to be honest all was good, no complains on the food at all. Prices are reasonable and service is acceptable, friendly staff. Menu is in Italian, English and Spanish.

Our experience looks similar to many other reviews. The food is mediocre (pizza pretty good but pasta bland and disappointing). They really let themselves down in terms of service by over stretching the too few staff. Food took a long time, and we were unable to order more drinks, bread or desert because the staff were just too busy. It... More

My husband and I decided to eat here because we were staying at a near by hotel on our honeymoon. They asked if we had a reservation and we said no so they asked us to return in 30 minutes, which was totally ok. When we returned we were seated at table they were clearing. The waitress was nice. We... More

The food and pizza in this location is not actually that bad. The kitchen is very typical (almost to a fault) but executed relatively well with honest prices. service ? not rude but absent. at times you feel like waving your hands in the air 'excuse me, i would like to spend my money here!'. the wine list is comprised...

We came across this fantastic place after taking a day trip to S. Marinella from Rome. It was an unusually warm day for mid feb so the town was quiet and the beach empty apart from a few dog walkers. For any British person, La Piazetta is the archetypical italian restaurant you dream of stumbling across - not found in... More

Went there for lunch, while on a day trip to Santa Marinella from Rome. Most of us took the recommendations of the day, which were fresh tuna pasta and a sardin & bread pasta. Tuna pasta was average as there really was no tuna to be found. My mother in law liked the sardin pasta though. Still the price /... More

The pizza and seafood are excellent, but you have to wait very/too long for your food and the staff seems to be very stressed. I've waited 1 hour for my pizza to go until my patience snapped.

Stopped on our way to Rome from the North and found the restaurant by chance. They made us very welcome in what seems to be mainly a locals' place. The seafood was excellent. Highly recommended!
