“Well Prepared Food”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

I have to begin with saying that when the waitress gave the specials she also told the prices which is always appreciated.We had an appetizer of fresh mozzarella and roasted peppers which was very good. I had lobster ravioli with shrimp. It was delicious but the shrimp were very small. My husband had a mixed seafood dish with linguine which he said had a fabulous sauce and he enjoyed it very much. My only complaint with the restaurant was that the portions were on the small side.

“An Excellent "Taste of the Mediterranean" Locally”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I have lived in Europe and have been disappointed in many of the attempts of local restauranteurs attempting to emulate the taste and overall experience. The La Piazza nails it 100%. We go there often. It actually has a small outside eating area that is "semi-enclosed" to truly enhance the excellent cooking. The food is fantastic and the offerings truly represent what you would experience.
I highly recommend it .

“Wasted Night”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

The food was something I could make at home (very basic and below average taste). The wait staff was slow and we were unsure who our server was based on the number of people we had to ask for assistance. The outside is nice only because you are outside instead of in....I would skip this one

“Don't bother, there are much better places in Ridgewood”
Reviewed February 7, 2011

We ate here once last year and the food was not bad but on a Saturday night they were giving us dirty looks to leave by like 10:00 pm. We met friends here as a halfway point between our homes. We decided to give them another try because we don't know the area so we made a reservation in advance for 7:30. When we got there they had reserved the very first table right by the front door where you got a freezing cold breeze everytime the door opened. There was another table in the back that was empty but they had added another table to it to make it for six. We asked them to switch the tables because we didn't want to be by the front door and they refused. They were not very nice about the whole thing so we left and went across the street to Tre Voci a much bigger and nicer looking place. They were as nice as can be and without a reservation gave us a nice table in the corner and the food was great and they didn't rush us so go there instead!!!

“A moderately priced surprise”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

Great atmosphere. Lovely patio dining in the warmer months. Beautiful brick lined interior, tastefully decorated. Wonderful array of menu choices at extremely reasonable prices. Many specials, though they are expensive. Unlike a number of restaurants the servers always recite the price of the specials so that you are never in the dark. Will make just about anything you want, even if it's not on the menu.
