Perfect poached eggs. I had a breakfast special of poached eggs on toasted Ciabatta, rocket salad with feta (and a gorgeous dressing), avocado and a slice of prosciutto. My Brother had Eggs Benedict with bacon. I tasted the Hollandaise sauce. It was delicious and no sign of splitting. Service was very friendly. I was sceptical at first as due to... More

Similar to a few others, generally lacking in in customer service & we experienced rudeness from a waiter. I had a very simple bruschetta , or a poor excuse for it . Others in our party I think we're satisfied with pasta & pizza. The smell of pizza cooking was lovely, that's about it. I also stopped in for a... More

We ordered 2 drinks from 2 different wait staff; 1 arrived quickly, had to ask for the other 3 times. Took a long time to take food orders so we ordered appetisers and mains together as too hungry to wait longer. Food was good but nothing special. My daughter ordered spaghetti bolognese, tiny portion for $22. Would have expected not... More

La Pizza is in the perfect spot on the esplanade among a variety of other restaurants. We stopped in for dinner one night and we were quite happy with our meals. The pizza was good quality however the one we ordered seemed to be lacking toppings (just a bad choice of pizza on our part). Other than that it was... More

We were looking for something different and had passed by this place the previous evening and it smelled wonderful. I like being able to see them preparing the pizza dough and cooking it. The pizza was very good and with a salad was a nice change from seafood and meats and chicken. Sitting outside was also fun as you can... More

Hi Karen, The amazing smell of the pizzas from the kitchen still gets us too! It is just irresistible and gives you the biggest pizza urge. Sound like you had a delicious dinner while relaxing and indulging in a bit of people watching on the esplanade. More

Great location as right on the eating strip. Good advertising with the pizza making right in front of the shop for all to see. Pity that the food is average, lots of promise and little was delivered. Lots of walk-through trade.

Food was ok but the customer service was below average. We came as a group of 4 with an 8 week old baby. We were in the waiting area ready to be seated, and then told rudely to move out of the way by a waiter so he could point out to another customer the size of the pizza bases.... More

We called in after the movies. As it was late they only had one waitress. She worked very hard on her own and once the order was taken it was not long before our food arrived. The pizza was quite nice but nothing special but a great atmosphere at that hour of the night.
