“Great food with incredible service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Had an absolutely brilliant time at La Piazza, and went several times through the week for both food and drinks.

The pizza is fantastic, you can see them being made, and the menu has plenty of options if you don't like them. If you do, you'll be fine! Plenty of options, and all looked lovely. One night we went back for a couple of drinks, and they were very accommodating even as they got busy. Had a great time relaxing there, and chatting with the staff.

The staff were all absolutely brilliant. They were our favourite on the island, and were all very friendly, chatty, and welcoming. We chatted frequently with them, and they made sure we were well looked after. They even recommended places for us to go out afterwards.

We had an absolutely wonderful time there and would make this my first visit when I return back to Crete for both the pizza and the atmosphere.

“We've been almost every day there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The best Pizza we have ever had. It is the perfect harmony of Greek and Italian food (try the Greek pizza). Even the small things are working great, like serving two dishes/straws/plates if there is only one order. The great and sincere service made us come back almost every day in our one week, at least to get some coffee. After we have finished we got a small complimentary dessert like an ice. There is a TV with a sports channel so one time we could watch our team while enjoying some drinks and the atmosphere. This restaurant is simply a must go!

“Best Pizza on Crete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Just back from two weeks on Crete and we ate at this restaurant twice in the second week of our holiday. Staff, service and food all first class. Marco was extremely friendly and repeatedly checked that we were happy with all aspects of the service. Food was cooked in front of us and there was a choice of set pizzas, "make your own" or other pasta dishes. Marco put the football on for us too. We had a complementary dessert and were also given a 15% discount card which was honoured on our second visit. All in all first class and if we go back to Rethymnon we will definitely visit La Piazza again.

“Top Notch family run restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We visited this restaurant twice during our week stay in Rethymnon and on both occasions the service and the food was fantastic!

On our second visit the owner instantly recognised us with a warm and friendly greeting and although the restaurant was packed he very quickly fetched a table from the back and made room for us outside.

The food on both occasions was exceptional (to the point where my partner said it was better than a well known British pizza restaurant). The pizzas are homemade in front of you and cooked in an authentic Italian wood fired oven and they're more than happy to make any type of pizza you could want.

The staff themselves really make the whole visit even more enjoyable and it's very obvious that the owner himself is a hard working, young and driven individual. When orders were piling up he rolled his sleeves up with a smile and started making the pizzas along with his sister at the oven whilst laughing and joking with the people there. The girls working there were incredibly friendly and patient and happy to help.

The price was very good value for money and the location was in a really nice part of the old town. On both visits we got a free complimentary dessert and we never once had to wait to long for our food. Sitting in this restaurant you could tell you were surrounded by repeat customers who were all having a great time.

All in all a MUST visit restaurant. Really cannot recommend enough.
