Awesome family friendly Italian restaurant (BYO), with great tasting staples and fun specials! The BYO aspect helps keep costs down. Really nice, cozy feeling ambiance...kinda like home.

The service was amazing and the food very good. I'm vegan and the staff was super helpful and made sure to turn one of their entrees into a vegan entree. Will definitely be back!

Service was slow. Had to ask for menus then we got 4 not 6. Had to ask for bread. BYOB-they opened white wine and then put on table. Had to ask for wine bucket then got one for table not on a stand. Food was average. Price Ok.No reason to go back

The food was excellent, not the typical pasta with red sauce. I believe it's Norther Italian. It is certainly a place to try for a change. The menu has changed where they specialize in different dishes every night. Good food, friendly service.

We visited this restaurant and even before the meal was served the Chef had the TV blaring in the restaurant. We kindly asked the waiter if he could ask the Chef to turn down the TV since we were there to enjoy a meal and not watch TV nor could we enjoy any conversation. Apparently this irked Chef Antonio since... More

I was in the area of Hillsborough, NJ on business and basically selected Caffe Piazza at random and was a very pleasantly surprised. I unknowingly arrived before they opened for dinner, but they still led me to a table and served me. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. The complimentary bread was served with seasoned olive oil that was... More

The service is always good and you're never rushed. The meal prices are in line with other similar type restaurants in the area and it's a BYO. So, what's not... More

Great food for a small unassuming little place in a strip mall. Be prepared to wait it fill up fast, but it's worth it. Bring a bottle of your favorite wine and enjoy.

I eat all manor of seafood but had never eaten a razor clam. These are the long thin ones you sometimes see as shells on the Jersey shore. Well, they had them as a special app one night.

Antonio Ruffa is the executive chef and owner of Caffe Piazza. Most willing to accommodate preferences, even gluten-free pasta!
