“Dinner on the Plaza”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

An excellent dinner at the Plaza Bistro. Attentive service from Linda and advice on the choice of a superb wine from the friendly barman (a 2011 Jermann Pinot Grigio) Good bread and tomato and mozzarella salad were followed by a perfectly seared tuna on a tasty mash, and my partner enjoyed the special - a tender duck confit. A good ambiance, with locals and visitors chatting at the bar and a view over the lights of the Plaza. Would very much recommend.

“Quiet bistro”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a nice, quiet early dinner here. I had the risotto, which was flavorful and full of fresh veggies. Others in my party ordered the gnocchi and the rigatoni which were good as well. Because it was early, 5 pm, we were one of three tables of guests. I'm not sure what the dinner hour traffic would look like, but it is a small dining area so it could get loud.

“Great happy hour, very good food”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Really appreciate the happy hour here. It's so much better than some other places in town that are noisy. Bistro has a cozy bar where we always run into locals, with enough tourists to make it interesting. Have never been disappointed in a meal here and it's a nice happy hour menu with enough variety to make a very nice meal. The polenta is delicious; the fish with wonderfully crispy fries is great.

“Lively bar, quiet restaurant”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Right on the historic plaza with nice small window tables. The gnocchi was very flavorful and tangy, but the risotto was very bland. Stay away from the hot teas - very bitter. Well cooked pork scallopini with bitter spinach (due to the addition of fennel?), and very good, creamy mashed potatoes.

Stopped in for Happy Hour after day of wine tasting. Our 53rd anniversary. We each had soup of the day which was lentil with bacon very good. I had a fresh green salad with cherry tomatoes and lemon vinaigrette. Super service and very good food Just what we needed after a day of wine tasting . Will come back soon for dinner. Restraunt looks very inviting.
