Friendly, helpful service and the food was divine. We especially liked the chicken pesto lasagna. I would score it higher, but the foccacia was tough and chewy, definitely not what I was expecting.

Chefs special, the stuffed shrimp and Italian Stallion pizza was dynamite. Would highly recommend this place. Gets busy - they do take call ahead seating for tables >6.

Had heard about this spot from an AZ Republic post on FB. We were in the area early on a Saturday evening. Small and inviting place, obviously family run. Pizza supposedly the feature but a lot of patrons eating other dishes. We had two different pizzas and a spaghetti & meatballs. Regina pizza with added sausage was fine, although needed... More

Dulce diavolo is the best pizza topping I have ever had. Sweet. Spicy. Fresh. Just yummy. Everyone loved their food but mine was best! Highly recommended!

We have eaten here several times. The food is always good as well as the service. The Pizza is amazing. Everything I have ever tried is good. We went with our daughters family (which includes 3 children) and everyone left happy and full. Will definitely go back again.

Great pizzas certified authentic Neopolitan pizzas, but don't overlook the other items on their menu. All are delicious. Nice ambience and great service. Family owned by local family.

Visited this small establishment on Saturday night. Ordered the Italian Stallion. The pizza was excellent. Small but awesome. We ended up ordering another. The two pies fed four adults perfect. Would highly recommend this restaurant

We live down the street, brick oven, fresh ingredients and friendly staff equals great time. Everything we have had has been excellent. Sometimes we just go for dessert. Can get full, early dinner or lunch is not as crowded.

Delicious thin crust with great toppings. We were told the "Itallion Stallion" was their best seller and you can see why. Delicious! The Margheurita was excellent as well, lots of gooey mozzarella and very tasty sauce. They serve Coke in glass bottles, no high fructose corn syrup, it says sugar on the label. How rare.

La Piazza al Forno distinguishes itself with their brick oven pizza's, however, like politics and religion, not all are in agreement that this rather small thin crust variety is the best. Being from Chicago, via NY, I crave something that I can chew on that is filling and not too unreasonably priced and is sized for leftovers. For that reason... More
