“Typical overpriced pizza place that tries to do better quality food”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

what you would expect from a pizza place trying to be an Italian restaurant. Was not impressed by same old selections, not very creative.

“Decent food, good service, a bit higher priced than the quality of the food.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Four of us wanted to try a new restaurant in the Hillsborough area and read some good review on Caffe Piazza, so we decided to give it a try. We shared the fried calamari, which was tasty with some good red sauce. I thought the portion was a bit small, as I've been to restaurants where the portion size was triple what we received. I order linguine with red clam sauce. It was well above average, with about a dozen nice sized clams in shells. The sauce was nicely seasoned and the pasta tasted homemade. An other had chicken francese, which she said tasted like the chicken had been frozen. Another had a differentr chicken dish, but she liked. Our fourth had the house specialty which was a homemade sausage. He wasn't real impressed. A complimentary mixed green salad was served with a homemade vinaigrette.
All in all, it was just OK. Would I go back? Probably not.

“All around great place to meet & eat”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We eat at CP frequently. The food is of high quality ans served with attention to detail. The owner/chef frequently visit with customers and often offers customers and after dinner drink on the house. Considering the overall quality of food, the prices are very reasonable.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I'm afraid this was more cafe and less restaurant. Tables were left uncleared for quite some time and a steak ordered medium rare was almost well done. It wasn't that busy and it was a shame that it could have done so much better. The atmosphere is a little flat and they could do with walking 20 yards down to see Thai Kitchen III and how a restaurant should be run. I'm sure there are regulars who like it but for us it reminded us of 1970's Italian restaurants.

“Really good food and good value”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Very happy with the food and the service. The jumbo shrimp were cooked perfectly. The linguine was homemade and the salad dressing (also homemade) was delicious. A friendly neighborhood place, BYO, and just plain GOOD.
