Caffe Piazza Ratings and Reviews
This review is based upon all the Great things I hear about this reputable Italian restaurant and my first hand dining experience there with family and friends. Tony and his staff are very friendly and there hospitality is first class. If you want an authentic taste of Italy, than do yourself a big favor and experience the fine dining of Caffe Piazza.
We loved Caffe Piazza! We received personal service from Antonio, owner and executive chef. Since he is from Calabria in Italy, you are getting authentic Italian cooking in a comfortable, friendly environment. Our favorite dishes included the burrata, the cioppino, and the short rib. We dined with our family including two children. Our kids enjoyed their dishes and have already asked to go back to Caffe Piazza. We look forward to our next meal at Caffe Piazza.
Reservations easily made on Open Table; a nice feature. Group arrived separately but were seated immediately. Service was very nice; not rushed with time to talk. Server made recommendations & was solicitous and accommodating.
Food was very good as expected. Everyone enjoyed their choices.
A nice small birthday dessert was made available.
Cafe Piazza is a very nice choice while in Hillsborough.
Owner Tony and Chef JaJuan really hit the mark with their paella special. The rice was moist and flavorful. The fish was varied and abundant; perfectly cooked along with the chicken and chorizo. BRAVO! The orange roughy was equally satisfying. Another great dining experience at Caffè Piazza.
Great local restaurant near two movie theaters. Warm, friendly atmosphere, with excellent specials. Antonio, the owner, always visits table, and helpful with menu choices. We have eaten short ribs, salmon, veal chop, and bouillabaisse - all from specials. Fabulous dessert tray!
My spouse and I are regular visitors to Caffe Piazza. We made a reservation to dine on Valentine's Day and were extremely pleased by the wonderful dinner and service. Needless to say, we were very happy about the choice to dine at one of our favorite spots that evening. Antonio the owner/chef makes you feel like family. His penchant for offering a variety of dishes, cooking great meals and offering wonderful desserts is unmatched; the meal presentation is outstanding and worthy of mention. This is all topped off by his personal attention to diners.
So, for anyone looking to enjoy a memorable family dining experience, we highly recommend Caffe Piazza.
We enjoyed a fantastic meal on an impromptu New Years Eve dinner following a movie and were so pleased with everything-- the food was absolutely delicious and fresh made to order, and it was a packed house, line waiting to get in the door. The service was delightful and very pleasant. A true Italian dining experience -- slow and long lots of time between courses. We will definitely be adding this cozy local spot to our list of favorites.
What more can I say about this marvelous restaurant that I haven't already said in my reviews over the past 10 years of dining there? Whether it's a party of 2 or 17 (like my birthday party ), the food, service and atmosphere are beyond compare. If you haven't tried it yet, you are missing out . It is sure to become one of your regular haunts.
Café Piazza is a neighborhood gem of Hillsborough. We had a party of 8 including 4 kids and the menu for kids was great that included pastas, chicken dishes, and more. I enjoyed my kids not eating hamburgers and chicken fingers for a change. Our kids even tried the fried calamari and we had to order another one as they ate an entire appetizer by themselves.
This is a BYOB place so it is nice to stop at Gary's Wine or Bottle King right next door to pick up a good bottle of wine to go along with a fabulous meal. Our table had the ahi tuna, potato gnocchi special, salmon special and we absolutely loved it. Great night out with our friends and family, reasonably priced for the high-end meals you can order (there are also very cheap, reasonably priced pasta dishes on the menu)
Café Piazza offers both a high end and mid-range menu with weekly specials for all tastes. I had the gnocchi special and it was superb. Great Italian restaurant allows you to bring your favorite bottle wine to share in a quaint restaurant setting.
The owner, Antonio, comes out and greets all of his customers enthusiastically and really cares about the quality of food he delivers to his patrons. This restaurant is a gem in Somerset County.
Excellent food and service!! Owner super attentive and for a party of 14 on a holiday was even more impressive !! Authentic Italian cooking ! Hearty choices for all pallets! Vegetarians and meat lovers will be super happy! Fresh fish too and special pasta dishes were incredible!
