“Delizioso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011

We went to La Piazzetta on the recommendation of Francesco at the Hotel L’Isola. My wife and I had a wonderful experience there. The owners and staff are extremely warm and friendly. This is “The Happening Place” in Santa Marinella where you can rub elbows with the locals and have an excellent dinner. It is run by Massimo and Fiorella, a husband and wife team who love people from all around the globe. The menu concentrates on fish, but not to the exclusion of all else. The seafood risotto was excellent!

“Wonderful find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2011

Stumbled upon this wonderful little restaurant back in end of March pre-summer season. Skepticle at first from the outset but the warm and freindly proprietor and his wife quickly made us feel right at home. Greeted with a very small menu and chief proclaiming 'only fish' again brought some doubt but we went ahead with a suggestions off the menu.

We were in for a feast!

When we saw the local handyman, retirees and the proprietors' family taking up the remaining tables, we saw that as a very good sign.

Dishes after dishes of fish and seafood came, each one of them fresh like it came off the boat.

What we planned as a quick bite turned into a 5 course example menu of good Italian seafood meal.

I guess the lack of English speaking abilities of the proprietors made it more of an Italian experience!

We were left with happy palettes, nice photos with the hosts and a nice little find to return to. Would definitely recommend this place if you ever want to catch some good local catch.

“Great local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

Enjoyed dinner at this restaurant while staying at the Hotel L'isola. Right next to hotel. Indoor or outdoor seating. Filled with the local residents. Staff did not speak much English but they were extremely friendly and the food was delicious. Fresh fish was available and it appeared that you are not limited by menu. First night in Italy and this was a great place to start.
