“Fine. Nothing special.”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

If you fancy a simple Italian restaurant with nice enough food at a reasonable cost then La Piazza fits the bill. It's not amazing but it's decent enough. I wouldn't go here for a special occasion but will happily eat here for an impromptu evening out.

“Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

A group of Friends 9 (6 adults & 3 children) decided to go out and celebrate two of the parties birthday's.
We had no problem just turning up without pre-booking as ther have a large seating area. Very friendly staff and child friendly also with crayons and colouring pads for the children being supplied when we sat down.
Food did not disappoint either and the smiley face on the Garlic Bread was fun. Service was a bit slow but not so much to cause concern especially if you are in good company.

“Not impressed ”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

It wasnt a busy night, yet the serviced was very slow. The food was average and not very warm. Our garlic bread was chewy and our mains could have been warmer. We weren't impressed and won't be returning.

“Evening Meals”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

We eat there twice on our trip. Food good service good. To give more than this is unnecessary. You do not require 50 characters.

“Scrumptious food + large portions = great value”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

La Piazza is a bit like the Tardis as it looks small and unassuming from the outside but the inside is large and the food is exceptional. We visited on a lunchtime and went for a main course only, thank goodness, as the portion sizes are large. My husband ordered a seafood pizza, a favourite choice for him and I went for a risotto with King Prawns and Salmon. My husband hasn't stopped telling everyone how fantastic his meal was, how much he enjoyed it, how much seafood topping there was and what value for money it was. Risotto isn't my normal choice as I'm a pasta fan but fancied a change and was not disappointed. The rice was lovely and creamy with lots of King Prawns and Salmon and it tasted fantastic. The service was also very good. If you're travelling to the Isle of Man I highly recommend a visit to La Piazza, and if you live there, especially in the Douglas area, lucky you having such an exceptional restaurant on your doorstep!
