Description: Overlooking a lake and beautifully manicured grounds on the McDonald's Campus in Oak Brook, Piazza is a true gem located inside the Hyatt Lodge. Highly regarded in the area as a social event venue, the Hyatt Lodge showcases their service and culinary skills in an intimate restaurant setting with Piazza. Rennovated in 2004, Piazza is surrounded by both artwork cases showcasing some of McDonald's corporate art collection, as well as a wine display featuring some of the bottles from the restaurant's Italian wine list. Featuring Mediterranean ingredients, the menu features interesting twists on mainly Southern Italian standards. Locally grown products enhance the flavors of the menu that changes with the season.

“Not worth the price”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

The husband and I shared the calamari. We could tell it was deep fried in old oil because it came out a dark color. The rings were ok but the tentacles were inedible due to overcooking. Dipping sauces: the marinara was tomato soup consistency and tasteless, the "aioli" was unbalanced tartar sauce that tasted like miracle whip.

My husband ordered the rigatoni w/ chicken and broccolini. It was dry and did not taste fresh. I thought maybe the butter sauce settled on the bottom of the bowl but that also was as dry as bone. The grilled chicken was overcooked along w/ the broccolini. I ordered the linguine that tasted ok but the scallops and shrimp were overdone as well.

We both ended up with stomach issues. I so wanted a great experience because the setting was beautiful. Unfortunately, stuffy waitresses who were shortstaffed and rushing all the time along with poor quality food will not sway me to give it a second try. I'm glad we were able to try it with a LS deal because I wouldn't have been happy had I paid full price. Our dinner reservation was at 6PM and they were not busy. :(

“Serene, romantic, hidden gem in Oak Brook”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

I hesitated to share a great review because I don't want my secret hideaway to be overrun.... We can always find a quiet table a Piazza and absolutely love their bar where one can view a spectacular fireplace and/or game day broadcasts. Their private room (for 12-20 people) is very nice as well. We enjoy feeding the fish/geese in Lakes Ed & Fred with left over bread too. The deck is ideal for leisurely sunsets. Lovely grounds to walk anytime.

“Not much to choose from”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

Although there's a wide assortment of pretty pricey pastas, pizzas, and the like, the choice seems carb-loaded, un-inspired, and pretty expensive. Again, maybe it is adequate for one or two nights, but I'd HATE to spend a week here eating off this menu.
