Attentive service. Pasta was amazing, formaggio pizza very nice. Large pizza had a base that was a bit too thick to enjoy the toppings. Would love to return and try all the different pasta options. Very busy at 7pm by the time we left.

Delicious, fresh and hearty food. We loved seeing the flames of the wood fired oven on a cold night. Service was quick and we left absolutely full. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal - this is a great family spot and we’ll be back. Home made rocky road was a brilliant dessert option too :)

WOW what a gem hidden in Erindale. My parents order the gnocchi from the specials board and my husband and I ordered a pizza to share and again wow. The pizza base was a work of art and the toppings delightful. The sweet potato gnocchi was light and fluffy but the sauce was complex yet delicate with wonderful flavours. We has a great meal and left with warm hearts thanks to an elderly couple sitting near us who were obviously regulars. The staff treated them like family it was beautiful.

We love returning to La Piazza for really good freshly cooked Italian food. We also like to introduce friends to it. We shared 2 large entrees- the wonderful zucchini puffs and the yummy calamari, he had his favourite veal dish and the girls had risotto and pasta, all very nice and very fresh.

This time we took friends from the coast who are having a hard time with a very sick relative in hospital nearby, so with the early First table sitting we had a quick but wonderful meal, and a generous discount, and our friends were suitably impressed. They took the menu and plan to use La Piazza as "their local" for visiting interstate relatives during the hospitalisation. Soul satisfying'home cooked' food where they can gather and support each other.

Fantastic food. Extremely busy night and the staff all coped with no delays in getting meals out. The manager was especially impressive when calculating our bill. Her customer service will help us choose to return there again.

First table discount encouraged us to show off the wonderful LaPiazza restaurant to friends who although local hadn’t been before . We had a wonderful meal with great service. Our friends are now planning a return visit they were so impressed with the lovely meal.

Wow! Had a fabulous meal at La Piazza last night. The calamari entree was fresh and perfectly cooked and the main lamb shanks was absolutely mouth watering. The best part of the experience for me though was the dessert: sticky date pudding with rum and raisin ice cream. The texture and flavours in the pudding were exquisite. Too die for - I'll be back in a hurry.

- dined at La Piazza Café and Restaurant Canberra on

The service was very friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. We had the antipasto platter which was great value for money and delicious, veal masala and lamb shanks, both meals were generous and tasty, the chocolate pudding was wonderful, like a lava cake! The cocktails were also very nice. Definitely recommend this restaurant, very happy customers

Wonderful experience. Great menu to choose from, very reasonably priced, quick to the table and absolutely delicious - topped off with exceptional service. Took the family - each of us warmly welcomed and menu items to please even the fussy eaters. Highly recommend.

The food was just ok. The garlic bread was burnt and the pizza toppings were scarce and the Marsala sauce was very thin, the service was ok for all of this the prices were very high, overall experience was just ok.
We will not be going again.

We have dined at La Piazza many times and are never disappointed. Food is always tasty and of high standard and service attentive. Can be a little noisy when full but this doesn't detract from the overall experience. Highly recommend this very popular restaurant

Staff were great, and accommodating of our family five even with a wine glass mishap! Food was delicious, but portion size for the lamb shank was smaller than expected. Otherwise everything else (including the entree squid, kids pizza and chicken risotto) was fantastic!

Rebecca Lanyon

The service was very friendly and they gave enough time between courses, so we didn’t feel rushed to leave. The size of the kids meals was sufficient for older kids (8-12) which was a nice surprise. I was a little underwhelmed with the pizza which could have done with a bit more cooking, but it will be delicious. The zucchini balls were delicious and the serving size was great to share between the four of us.
Will definitely eat here again.

Although the restaurant wasn't overly busy, the service was a bit inattentive. I had trouble getting some attention to order more drinks and our water wasn't refilled. However the food was of a high standard and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The kids loved the cronut dessert.

It had been too long since our last visit to this wonderful, relaxed, enjoyable Italian local. The excellent meal and service didn't disappoint. We were lucky to get a First table booking and took another couple who loved it to. The Antipasto, Bruchetta and pizzas were all terrific.

Our booking was for the opening time & the staff hadn’t arrived so we were seated by the chef who was obviously elbow deep in pizza dough-not a great start, but these things can happen. However, from there everything was fine & the staff were very pleasant. The food was good, pasta & veal dishes, & we would happily go again.

The Bruchetta was lovely and toasted and nice tomatoes, our 2 pasta dishes were really delicious and the chicken masala was tender with a nice sauce. We introduced a friend who assures she will now take her family to L Piazza. Well done.
