“Great food, service and welcome not as good as previously.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

La Piazza was our "special occasion" restaurant but after our last visit I'm not sure we'll go back there. It is pricier than other places but the food is superb and the wine list is excellent (they only serve beer and wine, no liquor). We went for my birthday last week and the food was excellent as usual, and our waiter was great. However, the rest of the staff (including the owner) basically ignored us or muttered monosyllabic responses. We had a reservation but they seemed more interested in "bigger" tables (in fact some of the servers were 'discussing' who would get the bigger tables in loud voices), put us in a crappy location and then moved furniture around us while we were eating, like we were an imposition. It has tainted what was a lovely restaurant experience but you can definitely get a warmer welcome for the same money (or less) elsewhere.

While we love to hear that your previous experiences at La Piazza Cafe have always been great, we are very sorry to hear that your last experince did not meet your expectations. While we constantly strive to prepare for the business of any evening, the restaurant industry has a way of changing moment to moment, and we have to continually adjust accordingly. In no way were you an imposition, and we apologize for making you feel that way. Unfortunately, moving tables and chairs at a moments notice is something that we have to do. As far as our staff is concerned, we have addressed the issue of personal discussions in front of guests. We will certainly do our best in the future to make sure that this is better handled, as to not make a disruption in your dining experience. We certainly hope that you will consider coming back to try us again for your next special occassion, or otherwise. Our owners are always on site during business hours, and would love to see you make another visit to the restaurant. Please make sure to say hello the next time you come in.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent dinner with our neighbors here at La Piazza. The meal selections along with a very fine wine make for a rewarding meal. We will be again calling for reservations.

“Great local restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

My husband and I went there the other evening with another couple. Everyone loved their meal. Bryan was our server and he was great. Friendly and attentive, but not overly. It was a very pleasant evening and we sat outside. Great atmosphere at European Village. We always enjoy ourselves at La Piazza whether for dinner or one of Larry's amazing wine events. They always strive to provide a unique experience which I love!

“95TH Birthday Dinner Party”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Superb service and were the perfect way to celebrate a dinner party for my Mother's 95th birthday. The private room was set up for 20 guests in an understated yet extremely elegant motif. Beginning with an assortment of appetizers and ending with desserts that were leaning towards decadent every guest was commenting that never had anyone had such a feast of tastes. Mushrooms stuffed with filet mignon was the appetizer hit, while the rack of lamb, grouper with a sauce that was beyond belief, or the veal parmesan were only three of the 6 main courses to choose from. Larry Lass Sr. and Jr. are owners that care about quality and have the polish to make any gathering the best you will ever have. We have eaten at La Piazza Café just for dinner and the same quality is always present for a dinner for 2 just as it was for our party. I would be remiss if I failed to mention that Larry, Sr. wife makes all the deserts. When you want a meal that you will remember as the best go to La Piazza Café.

“Excellent food, service, and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we had another wonderful experience. My husband and I did a date night here, while on vacation, and couldn't have picked a better place. This was our first time to European Village and we were so happy we chose this location. We got a nice little table outside, so we were able to enjoy the live music, lively atmosphere and beautiful weather. Phil was our server at La Piazza and he made the experience very enjoyable. He was knowledgeable about the food and wine and really explained to the food so that we got an understanding of what we were ordering. We started off with the baked brie. My husband and I think this was the best appetizer we have ever eaten!! Yes, can you believe that? WONDERFUL! My husband had the filet, which he really enjoyed and was cooked to his liking. I had the eggplant parmesan which was really good, too. We had not room for dessert but thoroughly enjoyed our meal and wouldn't have changed anything about it. Highly suggest you giving this a try if you are in the Palm Coast area.
