The food was just ok and but expensive, The waiting staff was ok, nice people but they just came to the table everytime they wanted to sell some drink or something else on the menu, We were never asked if there was any problem or if the food was good, apart from that was just OK. The garlic bread with cheese was perfect with the hot sauce. I will go again and give it another chance, they were busy at the time, I will comment if there is a change

visited for family night out,,staff very friendly more than enough food don't really need a starter.
all in all good night night out, would go again for a special night out but not all the time
in my opinion its a tad over priced and the place could do with a little make over looking a bit tired but we all are.but friendly staff make up for all that

Interesting and central position with easy going Italian staff and lots of ambiance. Easy free evening parking close by. Cosy bar with views over Douglas Bay.

Service was first class and no long wait. Main courses were of a good size for the money. Some dishes were superb others lack lustre and all around the same price, so a bit of a lucky dip. Presentation of food on our day did not come up to some of the photos which have been posted here.

Plus point : complimentary jugs of water were put on the table (but no bread or olives).

My "Douglas" pizza was an embarrassment, as it was so generously filled and absolutely delicious, but other pizzas at the same price were quite disappointing. One looked as though the thin filling had been painted on with a brush. All that was needed was a little imagination and a handful of garnish to dress them up a bit ( herbs even ?) and a pizza base that is not as hard as a rock please. They do supply almost a saw to cut them up with but even then it was difficult and sad to see the hardest pieces being left at the side of some plates uneaten.

Those who had pasta dishes gave them 100% thumbs up. One said she would return to the IOM just to experience another.

Our white wine, which was not over expensive, was superb and perfectly chilled.

Special offers really are generous and worth checking out on the website.

All in all a wonderful place for an overall good experience at an affordable price. With a bit of fine tuning at no cost to management, the food could make 100% too but it is not fair to judge on just one visit.

Certainly in my top 5 for the Isle of Man and I would return and recommend. Thank you for not being a let down La Piazza.
