Description: The restaurant La Piazzetta is located in the heart of Argegno, and it is the result of the cohesion between tradition and innovation. Our chief aim is the satisfaction of our clientele. First and foremost, here you can find simple dishes, top-notch produces and first-rate reception. Furthermore, we take a great care of the atmosphere, thanks to a careful and accurate musical selection: any visit becomes an event. We always try to improve ourselves: we are open seven days a week, and we prepare only seasonal dishes with seasonal produces. La Piazzetta is not a mere place to frequent, but an interpretation of your situations: a break, a ceremony, a meeting, a date or a lifestyle

“Buzzy venue with good quality food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were staying in Argegno for the week and one of our first meals was at La Piazzetta. There are a number of good restaurants in the village but this one always seemed the most popular with people willing to wait a while for a table. It offers huge, tasty pizzas and lovely risottos. Their desserts are also fab especially the mille feuille which was so light and crisp with a pistachio cream to die for! If you stay in Argegno you are bound to try the restaurant but it is also well worth a visit if you are staying nearby.

“Great little place!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I chose this super cute place for a romantic night out! We were pleasantly surprised at how excellent the food was! My man is Italian and he was impressed! I hear the pizza is great, but I ordered a seafood ravioli and my boyfriend ordered the salmon! Both were delicious! We went in May so we ate inside ... And was very romantic the setting! We were right beside a window and had a great view of the lake while we ate! The service was excellent! We will go back again next month to eat outside and enjoy a pizza!

“Wonderful restaurant, outstanding Italian cuisine”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed for a week in Argegno in May and almost wore out our welcome at this wonderful restaurant. Delicious menu options of pasta and fish ( the salmon was perfect! ) and the pizza's were excellent, the best we enjoyed in Italy. The owner and staff were friendly, welcoming and the upstairs restaurant has a lovely ambience. Highly recommended and excellent value.

“Excellent food,location and service!!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We stumbled upon this pretty little restaurant when we first arrived in Argegno. There was 10 of us (6 adults abd 4 kids)and they warmly welcomed us and gave us a beautiful table upstairs. The waitress Christina went over the entire menu and explained each item in english :) The food was excellent!! We had been travelling from Tuscany and it was the first great meal we had had. We joked that we would return for breakfast, lunch and dinner and we ended up getting lunch to go back to the villa and some of us did go back the next evening for dinner. The owner went out of his way and gave us a beautiful table outside. I would highly recommend this restaurant even if you are not staying in Argegno as it is worth the trip!!
