...the archetypical seafood restaurant you dream of stumbling across

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... read 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

i had spaghetti sea food there, and initially i was not happy because the quantity of pasta is not enough (compared to how i was hungry & how good was the pasta). but then, i understood that you will be really fine if you finish the sea food you have on the pasta. a very good service & employees are...

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!

Excellent value for money, very friendly staff. We arrived on a Monday night after a delayed flight, it was past 11 pm and they were closing. Still, they served us a very tasty meal with a smile, made us feel at home and on top offered us a free bottle of wine for the road. Great start of our vacation.

We took a train from Rome to Santa Marinella for a short day trip. After a high recommendation from two separate individuals, we tried this restaurant and had one of our best meals in Italy. We arrived between lunch and dinner, so there was a scaled back staff, but the service was great. I had the seafood salad and seafood... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel after finishing up our cruise in Italy and this was the only restaurant we could find that was open in Santa Marinella. They went out of their way to accommodate our party of 4 with drinks and food (even though they were only supposed to be serving drinks at the time). They didn't... More

We had our first meal in Italy at the Piazzetta. The fresh grilled fish was excellent as were the grilled vegetables. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of eating outside in the piazza with the charm and activity that accompanied it. The meal was relatively expensive but that was because of what we ordered. The service seemed somewhat slow and diffident... More
