Had a wonderful birthday dinner for my mom at La Parma on Saturday. They easily accommodated 25 people. The food and service were both impeccable, and we could not be happier. I would definitely recommend this location for a special event dinner. Menu highlights were the stuffed mushrooms, fried calamari, la parma salad, veal la parma, linguine with clams.

We bought in a group of soccer players from the USMMA - not the first time we’ve been as a large group. Each time the service has been excellent and the family style dishes are great to feed hungry midshipmen! We love this restaurant and will be back again next time we visit.

Saturday night dinner with 4 kids and 6 adults. We were seated within 5 min of our reservation time. The service was outstanding, waiters and staff were super polite and always there to refresh drinks, replace plates and serve. The food was delicious, stuffed mushrooms were outstanding, all the pasta dishes were delicious, shrimp parm, penne all vodka, seafood pasta were my favorites. Perfect place, will definitely be back!

Views of the water on a nice night are great from this restaurant. Unfortunately, although their signature dish of chicken scarparelli was great, chicken la Parma was awful. Bread was warmed stale bread. Salad and stuffed mushrooms were good. When the waiter asked how we liked the food and I pointed out that we hadn’t touched the chicken Laparma, he didn’t do anything to make it ok. He put it in a 2 go bag . The stale warmed bread seems to be a common problem with Laparma in Williston.

I'm sorry to say this one of the worst meals we've ever had at a restaurant. The two best parts of the meal were the salad with marinated artichoke hearts and the wine. Sadly, the real food was bland, overcooked and generally inedible. One of our party had the veal cutlet parm, which was overcooked, tough and not tasty; another had the minestrone soup and it was extremely bland; one had the shrimp cocktail appetizer and it was tough and presumably frozen; another had the seafood pasta, which was mostly calamari and had a sauce that seemed store bought. This was very disappointing all around. The reviews/profile mention scenic views, but there was none to be had--at night anyway; when I asked if we could by the window, presumably by the water, the host said there wasn't really a view. Mostly, you see a parking lot and dated furnishings. Perhaps it was an off night, but it seemed there was neither care nor pride in the food prep and cooking. We will not be back.

At La Parma, since the menu is a la carte it made more economical sense to order the family style portions for my friend and I. The family portion is perfect for 3 people. The food was delicious. The ambiance inside is relaxing with the fireplace in the middle of the dining area and the distant view of the lake.

My Husband and I went to La Parma for a dinner date. It was finally a nice night so we enjoyed the waterfront view as we ate. The service as usual was spot on and the food from the appetizers to the main course to the cocktails were amazing. Great place to go with family or a dinner date. In the summer they have outside seating or a water view and in the winter a beautiful fireplace. Great food and ambiance. What more can you ask for if your looking to eat Italian.

my family and i frequent this place for special occasions, birthdays, date nights and just to go somewhere for dinner. We love the food selections, its all family style or individual. my family always chooses family style options because we like to try and share things. The staff are friendly and professional, the wine selection is good as well.

This is always our go to restaurant for a celebration, but I was disappointed that on Mother’s Day we could only order family style and not individual. There were people at our table who were allergic to fish, and a vegetarian. Being limited to family style made accommodating everyone more difficult and expensive than it should have been

Excellent Service! My mother and I sat down for lunch at 1:30pm on Mother’s Day. We were greeted with a warm welcome! Each had a glass of wine and shared an appetizer and two entree’s. The food was outstanding, the ambiance was beautiful, and just the location is a gem! We are definitely coming back! Thanks again for the great service and delicious food!

Very disappointed with the service this time. Have been here before and have always been happy, its a great place for family-style dining. The waiter was hurried and outright rude, which is terrible considering we were a table of 8 and were here celebrating a birthday! Unfortunately, it will be a while before I consider going back...
