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.

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.

Great food and very friendly service (of a bit slow - fine for us but might be an issue if you’re in a hurry). Gnocchi (regular and dessert) a highlight!

Our first experience using First Table was great, the food was prompt to come out and staff were friendly.
The chicken marsala was a bit disappointing with three small pieces of chicken smothered in sauce, a very small serve especially for my partner. Pasta was great.
Overall a nice experience.

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.

La Piazza has fabulous Italian food. For 4 people we had 2 entrees and a garlic bread to share, very generous serves, tender calamari and nice zucchini balls. We had 3 pastas and a veal for main course again lovely food, I cant wait to go back for more pasta.

What a wonderful meal! To start we shared an imaginative antipasto. My husband ordered the lamb shank from the specials and was surprised to actually receive a very generous two lamb shanks in his serve. The waitress said they serve two when they are not ‘jumbo’ - I suspect this depends on your definition of ‘jumbo’, but he enjoyed every bite! I ordered the gnocchi dish served with lamb ragout which was spectacular. We opted BYO a very nice bottle of wine, which our waitress was very careful with. Corkage was $6.00 per bottle. The coffee was lovely and we waddled home content

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.

A welcoming environment from the moment we walked in. Antipasto platter for two was impressive, as were the pizzas. Kids meal pizzas were very generous and delicious. We will definitely be back!

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
