“Best Italian in Edinburgh!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Me and my partner discovered this restaurant whilst using a deal to get us 2 main meals for £9. Since this visit we have returned time and time again. The staff are lovely, very polite, and always happy looking even when they are busy. The food is lovely, I adore the pizzas and pasta dishes. We have told all our friends about this wee gem of a place. Its sort of hidden at the moment due to tram works. However when your in the restaurant the atmosphere inside is lovely.

“Ignore the roadworks”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Despite the work taking place outside the place is as welcoming as we hoped it would be so my first sdvice is ignore the ripped up road outside while the tram system is being built.
It was my much better half's 40th and the staff were fully aware of this when we entered, gave us a lovely table adorned with flowers and a complimentary glass of vino each, great touch.
I am not one of those food snobs who like to pontificate about every morsel they eat but the food truly was superb, one word of warning the Vesuvio pizza certainly does what it says on the tin!!
The staff have the great knack of mixing friendliness with respect and were a laff all evening. The young lady who served us was attentive but professional. We used a groupon type voucher but I fely almost guilty using it so good was the experience, a very good tip reduced that guilt. Highly recommended. We can't wait to visit this beautiful city again and la piazza will be on our list of where we will eat for sure.

“Busy Italian spot”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

First of all I have to praise the staff. Despite that the place is extremly busy the staff were polite, quick and helpful. When it comes to the food it is decent but not extraordinary. We had bean soup and past dishes and were not overwhelmed. Portions are rather rich. One tip: do not take pinot grigio.

“STILL GOOD”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I hadn't been to La Piazza for some time but had lunch there with 2 friends who had never been. They were impressed and I was relieved. Even though it was busy, which is a good sign these days, the staff cope as if you were the only people there and are very pleasant. The food was good too. Well worth patronising.
