“The best pasta in Stavanger area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

The best pasta in Stavager Area.
The pizza is ok, but not the best in town.
The location is excellent (city center with nice view)
The restaurant is very clean, the waiters helpful.
The prices are really good for Stavanger standards.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

A very nice restaurant, with a cosy atmosphere and good food. It looked like it was a popular place with the locals.

“Budget compromise”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Food was passable but kitchen staff would be murdered by the likes of Gordon R. Visited many times over the years until I got a bit more choosy, always felt like it was under ever-new management (hence the enduring name). Plus for swift service.

“Not a good place at all!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

1. They serve "reker i lake", boxed shrimps, instead of the fresh version. In Stavanger!

2. They obviously ran out of beef. Instead of telling us, they serve two of us our pizzas without this main ingredient.

3. "sesongens grønnsaker", the seasons vegetables in september seem to be iceberg lettuce and tomatoes.

4. First one waiter lied about knowing the ingredients ("there is no egg in carbonara or hollandaise!") later both the (intruding) waiters admit that they don't know their food (they had to check with the kitchen if there's egg in tiramisu).

5. I believe the tiramisu is prefabricated. Even if it's not: it is topped with whipped cream and chocolate sauce! Embarrassing!

6. You have to double the prices you see here. You get much! better! food! in Stavanger for this money, "la piazza" is a ridiculous pace.

“Great location, ok food and ok service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

New La Piazza is located right into the harbor, close to were the cruise boats stay during the summer. The location and the interior is the best thing about the place.

The food has some way to go. I have visited this place more 20+ times and find that the value and quality of food is generally average. The service is also varied, differing from excellent to overdoing it to ignoring multiple attempts at getting attention and leaving guests to wait for a long time to pay.

This is a place to get some food if you are hungry for Italian-inspired food, but it is not a place for the great romantic dinner. It still has great possibility for improvement.
