We've been last night to have dinner there. It was the worst experience ever and the services were on the lowest level , first of all because we had to wait 17 minutes only for drinks, giving the conditions that the restaurant wasn't even full. The waiter dind't know how to write the tipe of food from the special menu, when we asked how big is the portion of chiken his answer was : " it is enough because you also ordered chips", which of course wasn't. The coke ( large glass) was old and from a plastic bottle. When they came with the bill, we realised that the bar total was wrong and we went to check with the waiter, so we found out that they didn't even have in the menu large coke so they charge us double, even though the glass wasn't double. We will never ever go back there

Went there on a lovely warm Friday night and really enjoyed the experience as the atmosphere in Goose Green on a sunny evening feels more Mediterranean than Cheshire. As for Piazza they are offering something halfway between a traditional Italian and a Spanish Tapa's menu sounds strange but actually worked in terms of choice. The service was great very friendly and relaxed and there seemed no issue with us extending our stay and enjoying the live music from the next door bar.
Whilst the menu prices appear reasonable I would say they need to work on the quality of the food. My Pork belly had been grilled rather than slow cooked and was pretty unpleasant and other dishes were no more than ok. However it wasnt expensive and as I say the whole atmosphere meant that the food quality really didnt detract from the night.

The house wine was very reasonable,we had a really lovely night enhanced by fantastic service and attention from the friendly helpful staff. Will definitely return.

Called in with a group of colleagues for Lunch. We sat outside to enjoy the sunshine, the restaurant is located in Goose Green which is a small square off the main road. It makes for a relaxing atmosphere, saved from the majority of the road noise and bustle of Altrincham.
The food was very tasty and well priced. I had a Chicken pesto panini, which came with fries and coleslaw salad for £5. Service was friendly and attentive, and the food arrived in double quick time. Highly recommended for a lunch time!

Called in for lunch and were not disappointed; there were plenty of tables outside so we were able to enjoy the sun,the Panini's were excellent and very good value and I couldn't resist trying a Bellini, fabulous. Very friendly staff and quick service even though they were very busy
