We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and evening at La Paranza. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home, and a plus that the food was very good. I had homemade gnochi (small potato dumplings) for starters that was...More
Superb! Cozy, warm, familial atmosphere. There were only two tables seated for the duration of our time here on a Sunday night, so service was exemplary, however I feel it would be the same if there were more guests. The veal piccata was amazing as...More
