“A solid three stars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2009

The food and ambiance at Piacere are good but sadly, in my experience, the service is sub-par.
I have sat at an outdoor table and been ignored. And, in the midst of a HOT (104'!!) August Night, left sitting in the blazing sun with an empty ice tea glass for well over 10 minutes. Twice. Dehydration goes with no meal.
Having said that, I would (and do) still go back. The food is good and if you ask for what you want (squeaky wheel time) you will be taken care of.
Favorites include several of their "gourmet pizzas" (though they took my favorite off the menu) and/or a wide variety of salads.
Drop by on an evening when they have live music. The joint is jumping!

This spot was way better before the remodel/menu overhaul. Still decent italian, though. Bit overpriced.
