An outdoor large place which has pizza, pasta, and seafood. Wife loved the lemon garlic mahi mahi which came with steamed fresh veggies. My chicken parm was cooked perfectly and came with pasta. If only they had topped with with fresh mozzarella, it would have been perfect. But I don't know if any place has fresh mozzarella in PV.

We love Mexican food, but after 5 days, this was a nice break. Amazing pizza and pasta paired with a great wine selection.

This was my first time dining here and the food was very good. The Bruschetta, Fettuccine Alfredo and homemade raviolis were quite tasty.

We were walking by and I remembered reading some great reviews for La Piazzetta - we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did! Service was fantastic - I wish I could remember our waiter's name - he was so charming and accommodating. We sat in the open air patio and watched the people passing by.... More

The lighting-- just right levels, the music-- just the right level the service (especially Hugo I believe is his name) perfect. Slightly sunken patio, great outdoor ambiance and right on the main street. The food is very good . Casual but above average classy patrons, nice quiet just a wonderful place for dinner, easy to drop in, no reservations needed,... More

I live in PV and this is one of my favorite eating out places in Old Town. It is an Italian eatery owned by an Italian and the food is always good and the Staff is professional and most have been there a long time. Very atmospheric and you always meet other regulars there seated in a covered outside setting.... More

However, the food is good and decent value. We are not crazy about the pizza crust which seems to be pre-made and a bit like cardboard, but the toppings were good and generous. There is a fun little bar.

This is a charming Italian place right in the so-called zona romantica. The menu is quite adequate though the scaloppini were all beef. We had a seafood pasta with oil and garlic sauce which was excellent. The zucchini, mushroom, carpaccio, and calamari appetizer dishes were well done. The gamberi al aglio are recommended. But don't bother with the apple strudel.... More

Fifteen years ago, driven by the advice of a good friend, we started with a small facility; this was a time when we only had a variety of 7 pizzas and 2 salads. I personally started cooking with one of my old cooks, we worked very hard and added some pastas in order to serve our customers the way they deserved.Several years went by and our clientele grew every day. Luckily, the property next door became vacant and we decided to extend the restaurant to service all our customers who still visit us to this day, we remodeled the place and now have a dining area for 200 people. We created a fresh and clean environment with a romantic and bohemian touch, features that are our trademark in La Piazzetta. We also extended our menu and created 24 different types of our already famous pizzas, new salads, pastas and main courses, creating the menu you can now enjoy with us.
