“Ok food, but touristy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

We had a tuna salat which was nothing special but totally overpriced and a pesto pizza. The pesto pizza was really good even if it was rather small. The seating downstairs looks very nice but is very limited. The seating are upstairs is extremly packed.
In a nutshell, its really a touristy place. Close to the big plazza, ok food, but very high prices for the offered quality, eg 3? for a 0,2l Sprite.

“Good food, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

This was just the start of our visit to Amsterdam, after a few days in sourhern Netherlands. We were enjoying Dam square, and the kids (5, 9 and 12) as well as us were becoming hungry.
We noticed the Pizzeria la Piazza abd went in.

We ordered a Pizza fir the two boys which was almost big enough to maje them both full. I order a pasta dish which had a good sauce though the pasta was just a bit too soft and mot al dente. My wife's canelloni was good. Our young daughtet got her Spaghetti with lots of cheese as she like it.
The service was very frirndly and the food arrived pretty quickly.
In the end we paid 43 euros, including a bottle of water. So in sunmary a nice place to satisfy a family's appetite in Dam square.

“Good enough for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We were looking for a nice and easy place to have a quick lunch break while sightseeing in Amsterdam. The Lasagna and Spagetti Carbonara served here was good enough and the prices very reasonable for the location. A bit distubing that one of the waiters entered the restaurant with a take away hamburger meal and ate it at one of the tables in the restaurant. Not a very good PR for the place.

“Unremarkable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Well... Not really much to say about this place. The pizzas are on the uninspired side, not bad, but I have had a lot better. The service is OK, the atmosphere is OK, but nothing to be excited about. Not a place I'd especially want to visit again, but not one I'd especially avoid, either.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A lovely little place just at the side of the Royal Palace. We sat upstairs, staff were friendly and efficient. I had a mushroom pizza, which was delicious (E9.50) & my partner had Spaghetti Bolognese (E11). We shared a litre of red wine which was E18. Would return & recommend.
