Had a nice Mother’s Day lunch at Cafe Piazza , went based on a friends recommendation, and we were all very pleased with the excellent food and service. The owner/ host was very friendly and accommodating , servers very prompt and professional, and the food was delicious . Both Moms loved it ! Can’t wait to return for a nice dinner and bottle of wine !

Go to place for Saturday night Italian. Very family oriented but good for date night as well. Specials always offer something to consider. Rarely have room for dessert but it looks great! Excellent espresso.

Everything about this restaurant is great. You get so much food for the price and you can cut the steak with a butter knife. Never disappoints.

Great family place. It's actually rather a high end experience in spite of the location and reasonable pricing as well. (We actually went on 'date night')

A pleasant surprise. 1st time there. Nice ambiance . The variety and creativity of the food selections were impressive. The food was very good and substantial. The entree prices for some dishes seem high -- but because it is a BYOB, the overall the value, quantity, and quality make the overall cost very affordable.

The owner is very friendly and definitely takes pride in and has a passion for making excellent food creations and ensuring a professional, yet cozy, dining experience.

We never had a bad meal at cafe piazza and wondered aloud why we don’t come here more often. It’s a bit of a drive, but we vowed to put it on our rotation. We also wondered why the restaurant sometimes wasn’t packed. Well maybe more and more people are catching on. The restaurant was filled and we are glad we decided to make reservations. Food is terrific, it is very comfortable and the service is great.

Very enjoyable place to eat. The food was top notch and the servers all seemed very happy. This tells me that the employer appreciates his staff which trickles down to me the customer. Service was quick, food was full of flavor. Will return again for sure.

Went here with a friend for New Year's Eve, not knowing it was a "set" menu for a set price. I had never been there before and it was not specified on the website. Initially I was disappointed, but the owner and staff were so accommodating. I'm a vegetarian and they made sure the menu fit my needs. The food was amazing and I intend on going back. Love this place.

Truly a neighborhood gem where you are greated and treated like a best friend from point of entry to departure. The food is anything but standard, it’s delicious, made with care and presented with attention to detail. BYOB and great experience make this a regular spot on our short list in town. You will not be disappointed.

Caffe Piazza scores big again. Seafood risotto special and the rigatoni combo with sausage, eggplant and mozzarella both hit the mark. Service excelled even with a full house. Owner/chef Tony still found time to chat with patrons. Dining here is always a great personal and culinary experience.
