Excellent pizza and pasta in a charming environment! We've tried several different pizza, each one has been better than the last. It can be difficult to find a table during busy dinner hours so come early, well worth it!

By far the best pizza in the Phoenix area. One of our favorite places to visit. The pasta dishes and salads are also very good. The white pizza and linguine with clam sauce are my favorite.

Wonderful pizza sicilian style. Can't say enough about this place. It is great. You must go. Got their version of meat lovers. Small pizza was plenty for two people.

Excellent pizza and pastas! We had the Rigatoni Al Forno pasta and the Italian Stallion pizza. Both were delicious! Sandi was a wonderful waitress. This place can get busy on weekends so be prepared for a possible wait, but its definitely worth it. A hidden gem in downtown Glendale.

Had a broth based chicken pasta with Rigatoni and couldn't shovel it in fast enough. That was preceded by the house specialty salad with greens, Parmesan, salami, and olives in a just right sweet vinaigrette. Unbelievably good. This place always is. Go there. Now. Warning -- they get three bucks for a can of Diet Coke. That seems a bit... More

I heard about this place on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, and I wanted to change up my birthday tradition. I'm glad to have switched it up. This small Italian restaurant in downtown Glendale was pretty great! It features great pizza, pasta dishes, wine and desserts. I enjoyed the Frutti del Mare, which has mussels, calamari, shrimp and clams over linguine.... More

I'm not a big pizza fan, so it better be great. LPaF hit that hard to reach mark. A thinner crust packed with fresh authentic ingredients, that you can taste. Real Italian cheeses and meats, except for the sausage, made by a local sausage maker who knows what they're doing. Busting with flavor! They also have pastas and desserts, which... More

After seeing La Piazza Al Forno on Diners, Drve-ins, and Dives finally planned a visit after living here 3 years. Had tried to get in during Glendale Glitters but the wait was something like 3 days or so. A non-event Wednesday night was just the ticket and we were seated immediately. It's not fancy - I suppose the motif could... More

Visited this place today with family. Had two pizzas. First one was the Salvatore - our server said this was one of their best sellers. This was a good choice not spicy, good for kids. But I got a side of chillies to go with this pizza. The second one we tried was Dolce Diavolo - this has a good... More
