Lovely welcome, great food and fantastic service throughout. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a great meal out. Food home made and the differences and taste was noticeable. Well worth a visit and reasonable priced too.

Great staff and plentiful portion size of quality food, according to a 10year old the best Margherita in the world! Booking not essential midweek but would be on the weekend.

We always meet at this restaurant as it happily accommodates a group of ten. We mainly choose a Saturday lunchtime as it's not too busy, which suits my son who is Autistic. As a family we love this restaurant due to varied menu choice & the restaurant has a lovely feel about it. No chicken nuggets in this restaurant just fantastic food served in smaller portions for children. Although the prices may not be cheap they reflect the value & excellent size of the portions. We have never had a sweet yet as the starters including garlic bread are too hard to resist!!! Can't say anything negative about our visit, just wish they still had the lovely big Olives we've had in the past.

La Piazza is a friendly traditional Italian Restaurant. The staff are nice and service is very good. I have eaten here five or six times in the last couple of years and it is consistently good. Prices are reasonable and there is a nice wine list. Nice decor with clean and modern facilities. As a trans person it is lovely to go to such a welcoming place. Highly recommended.

NYE and what an amazing night. We had king prawns to start and steak for main.... the most amazing steak I've ever had.. cooked to perfection. Would come back to Bournemouth just for this restaurant. They also made it a NYE to remember. We thought we would be having a meal and finding somewhere to see the new year in. How wrong were we. Dj and dance floor... masquerade masks, cowboy hats and whistle blowers... plus party poppers. Really didn't expect what they had in store and needless to say we didn't leave til well gone midnight. The service was excellent.. couldn't have asked for them to be any more attentive. However... for the food alone... I would recommend. Not to be missed xx
