Fifteen years ago, driven by the advice of a good friend, we started with a small facility; this was a time when we only had a variety of 7 pizzas and 2 salads. I personally started cooking with one of my old cooks, we worked very hard and added some pastas in order to serve our customers the way they deserved.Several years went by and our clientele grew every day. Luckily, the property next door became vacant and we decided to extend the restaurant to service all our customers who still visit us to this day, we remodeled the place and now have a dining area for 200 people. We created a fresh and clean environment with a romantic and bohemian touch, features that are our trademark in La Piazzetta.…

Great place for pizzas and pastas. The sunken outdoor patio is the perfect place to see the world pass you by. Always great to see street performers as they like to stop on the sidewalk and serenade diners.
We went here for Supper. We both had pasta & it was very good. The pizza looked good but never tried it. It is a very place but large enough that there is no waiting. Good service. Would return for sure
La Piazzetta has been here forever, serving good Italian food. It has earned its reputation as a great Italian restaurant.
Usually it is quite busy this time of year, and was last night, however we were seated immediately. Drinks were ordered and delivered quickly with...some time to read the extensive menu. Lots of pasta and pizza options.
We ordered the salmon special (price) and a pizza. Started with the Caprese salad to share, which was quite generous.
A basket of focaccia is great as there are bottles of oil and balsamic vinegar on the table.
Salmon was quite a large serving, with vegetables. Looked and tasted great. The pizza (pepperoni) was about 8 or 10 inches, with a very thin crust. Ate the whole thing! Enjoyable.
Service was excellent.More
The pizza here was just okay for me. My partner enjoyed theirs much more. We had dessert here the day before and that was amazing. Though the owner was quite friendly to us, we witnessed too much aggressive interraction with his wait staff. He seemed...on edge and constantly snapping at his staff. They did not look happy about it at all. That causes too much tension for the people that are sitting in the restaurant enjoying their dinner.More
Servers were professional and prompt. We arrived without a reservation and were promptly seated but with a gracious request to accomodate the table's reservation in an hour.
Prompt beverage service followed after our orders were taken.
The food was exceptional. I had beef and my...husband had seafood. Texture, flavor, and appearance were appetizing.
A mariachi band came through and performed several songs while we were dining.
This is covered open air dining. The areas are clean with a comfortable noise level.
We finished our meal with plenty of time to spare. We had an exceptional meal in an exceptional location.More
Tourist trap. We were placed in the room that was extremely echoey with people that were very loud. The poor staff was so short that they had to run in between tables. The food was decent, but there is no personal touch because it’s like...an assembly line that tries to get as many people as possible. We will not returnMore
I have been to Puerto Vallarta 3 years in row and La Piazzetta is always a must. This year (2020) were in Puerto Vallarta from Feb 10-24th and went to La Piazzetta 3 times. The food is excellent. Amazing pizza. We also had the lasagna,...the fried eggplant app, and the "fettucine a la paesana". Everything was wonderful. And the atmosphere and staff are equally as wonderful. This is always a favorite of ours and we'll always go back.More
A truly interesting restaurant , a bit sunken from the streets on both sides but the staff and food along with the good glass of wine is what this restaurant has to offer . It may not open until 4pm but when it does you...will not be disappointed . You should try the house wine , you will be able to celebrate on a reasonable budget . Start off with an starter , the calamari was prepared to perfection . The insalata caprese was excellent . I had the Quattro stagioni pizza with added anchovi. Wow !
As noted the white wine was great with this meal .More
