Description: I find it Difficult To Explain why You should eat to know us. I can think of several things: our cocktails, location, dinners, etc. All that is true. The Most Important thing is the atmosphere, think of a place Where we make you feel comfortable and relaxed. We started this venture eight years ago with a pub That We called Piazza, but it's best Known as Freddy's Pub (my name is Federico). Our little venture turned into a little adventure When three years ago we set-up a restaurant next door, of course under the same name Piazza. First our friends started coming over Atletico Madrid and soon few fans (the football club I belong to) Began to gather here at the pub. Little by little we started growing, specializing in cocktails and sports. So That All Who visit us can enjoy all major European Football Championships as well as other sports: such as Rugby, F1, Tennis or Golf. You can enjoy watching all sports in Original on one of the five screens available at our bar. When you visit us, I'm sure you will enjoy our wonderful outside terrace perfect for summer nights Where mojitos, daiquiris or gin and tonics have any available special flavor .

“Can't understand negative reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

First of all, the situation is great - in one of the main squares opposite the Cathedral. Pleasant interior (air-conditioned), or several outdoor tables to choose from.
The menu has typical Spanish tapas, as well as international dishes. We had the croquettes - homemade, huge, and 1 Euro! Garlic prawns were excellent. Good selection of paellas, and the black rice was especially good. Can also recommend the fish and (hand-cut) chips.
The service was friendly and efficient. Although it may be slightly more expensive than nearby restaurants, in my opinion, it is definitely worth the little extra.
One criticism - the wine list could be more varied in a restaurant of this quality.

“Imaginative food. A good meal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We ate well at this restaurant. Wine by the glass was delicious and the foie starter with baby broad beans was great. Sea bass main course had bones but was described as fillet but it was tasty.
Fairly reasonably priced.
Service was good.

“Not the greatest place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

The waiter was a bit strange and service was slow. Food was limited and average at best. Also everything was fairly over priced. There are a lot more resturants in the vicinity and I recommend you keep walking to some others.

“Great Find - Magnificent Place - Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We´d like to share our opinion. La PIAZZA has been a great find for us: in the heart of the Old City of Alicante, with wonderful, original design and very cosy outside terrace. Good service and reasonable prices. The salad with foie-gras, ravioli under the wine sauce and the Black Paella were just DELICIOUS. Highly recommended, with no douts.

“Awful meal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Had a terrible meal at this place one ravioli and three lasagnes
Could not find any ravioli just a plate of sauce
Lasagne was just a microwaved dish cold on one side burnt on the other
Condescending waiter forced another bottle of wine on us
Felt like he was laughing at us for being ripped off
DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED CASH HERE
