I had my hubby's 50th birthday party catered by La Piazza and it was fabulous! The chicken cacciatore was to die for and the braised beef was so tender. Every guest at the party loved it! This is definitely 5 star. Thanks to Executive Chef...More

They catered a friends wedding a few years back and took me this long to go for myself. Fantastic staff, the food was far better than expected. I had the antipasto and the Puttanesca, superb, I'll be back for sure.

We have been to La Piazza many times. We've tried every dish once, and gone back for our favourites. The service is always friendly and knowledgable, and it's usually a full house, so make reservations. The pasta is so good it's hard to recommend one,...More
