Very pleasant atmosphere if a little noisy .. but it was a Saturday night so to be expected if the restaurant is any good. Service was friendly, efficient and courteous. Our food was very flavourful ... we shared one portion of PEI Mussels as an Antipasti and then enjoyed a delicious pasta dish each. We liked that, on some of... More

My husband and I chose this restaurant because we had visited last summer - and since we were in town for a concert we thought we'd give it a second chance. Our first dinner had a few blips - dish advertised with anchovies had none in it (Puntanesca) and when asked about the missing anchovies, the server said "oh we... More

I believe I've finally found an Italian restaurant comparable to enjoying a meal in Italy! The polenta and risotto are luscious, heavenly, delish!

Rebecca our server was attentive, friendly and good humoured. The drinks came fast even though the place was packed! Calamari apps were good although a little rubbery. Another round of drinks and our order was in. Even though it was very busy including the bar area we waited for an hour to get our meal. By then we had consumed... More

The excellent Italian food and friendly, well timed service made a lovely evening at La Piazza.. They have an extensive wine list with many special wines from Italy, although there were also wines from the local area as well as other regions. Several wines were available by the glass or 1/2 bottle as well as full bottles. The menu offered... More

Our meal came to our table in about 15min. which was nice. We have been here 4 times previously and always enjoyed our meal. The meal... More

We had not been to La Piazza Allegra for many years, but decided to try it again for our birthday dinner on Saturday. The decor was inviting when we first stepped inside the Italian restaurant, with its darker tiles and wood, white table linens, and low tasteful lighting. For starters, we received a basket of yummy sliced bread that included... More
