the antipasta and pasta dishes were excellent...as was the crème Brule. The steak was tasty but overcooked...we had ordered medium rare and it was definitely medium well to well done. the waiter, is one of the best in the city!
Excellent service... grilled calamari was outstanding as was the pasta with lamb
My girlfriend and I went here for a belated Valentine's day dinner and had an absolutely wonderful time! The food, wine and dessert menus all had a good selection at reasonable prices, and the food was delicious. The restaurant had a great layout, with groups on one side and couples seated in a separate, quieter area. We loved our server, who was friendly and funny and made the night even more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend Piacere and we look forward to returning on future special occasions!
Wow! Fantastic restaurant! My boyfriend and I came for the first time tonight and we will definitely be back! The food was delicious, my steak was PERFECT! I’m already looking forward to going back and getting it again! The staff was fantastic and so accommodating and the wine was delicious. We decided the moment we left that we would be coming back again and again. Can’t wait for our next experience!
We had not been to Piacere in some time and despite that, it never ceases to satisfy. The food was great as was the service. Franco the owner recognized us as returning customers and dropped by our table to greet us.
My wife had to the Seafood Pasta and I had the Grilled Salmon. Bother were excellent choices.
I definitely would recommend dining at Piacere!
Even though we booked a table we had to wait for 20 mins. Service was too slow, I understand it was a busy night but it was a little more than usual. Overall it was a nice experience
Good authentic Italian food and reasonably priced.
The food was outstanding, service was excellent! Even got to catch the leaf game! 10/10
Thank you Franco for taking care of us! Food was fantastic and the service was phenomenal!! I would highly recommend this restaurant! Had my sons baptism here 12 years ago and it hasn’t changed! See you next month!
Piaceres is our favorite restaurant . Service, food and atmosphere is top notch!
We were excited to try this place having heard good things about the food. Unfortunately service was not good. It took forever to be seated even with a restaurant and we were constantly told by our waiter that they were so busy, even though there were several empty tables. We were not given water when seated and had to ask for it, even then we were given only half glasses full of FREE TAP WATER. I would not go back and I would not recommend. Which is unfortunate because the food was good and the value was good too. This restaurant needs to get its act together.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience here.
- we will be back.
Food was delicious and service was great.
Overall great experience. Staff were awesome and food was amazing. Our two year old barely eats and she would not stop plowing down the homemade pasta and the mushrooms. Awesome experience. Will be back for sure.
We relied on open table for a suggestion and were impressed with the Whole fish and Past dish. Very good and very good service.
Very good restaurant. I was there for a birthday and the service, food were excellent. I truly recommend it
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The food was amazing being one of the best Italian restaurants I have had dinner. The portions were large, very tasty and authentic Italian. Great ambiance and attentive and friendly service.
Service and food were fantastic. All of our dishes were cooked perfectly.
Food was great, service quick but atmosphere was not appealing. It was Saturday night 8pm and there were 2 other tables - that’s it. The music was barely audible so it made the experience a bit strange.
Excellent food and great service. Well worth it! I would highly recommend it to friends and family.
Outstanding excellent food and service will be back I highly recommend
Fantastic food and amazing service , very friendly and accommodating
My family really enjoyed our dinner and we went for my husband Birthday 🎉
Andrew was very informative. Good value
The food is just OK. Service was a little slow as it was busy with a few larger groups that had celebrations. The pasta and meat dishes were just fine but the pizza was not at the standard that's expected from the more authentic wood fired pizzerias that I've been to.
We have enjoyed dining here for many years. The food is consistently delicious. It can get noisy as it did this time. There were multiple large family groups, birthdays etc. They accommodated all well, service was friendly and efficient.
On other occasions there were all small tables, couples etc, so noise was not an issue.
I would highly recommend, prices are a great value for the quality of the food. It seems to accommodate large groups very well too. House wine was also an excellent value.
I've been to Piacere many times and the food has always been outstanding each and every time. Franco cares about his clients and is always prepared to make sure you are happy. His staff is also always courteous and helpful.
Seafood risotto was amazing! Fish cooked perfectly, flavours delicious! Still thinking about it.... maybe coming back tonight!! Thanks for a great meal!!
Piacere I would recommend very friendly the staff! was very attentive ! everyone in good mood which makes your evening, great food! the wine was amazing.
I was completely dissatisfied with my experience. The menu boasted many great options, but when the food arrived, it was not up to par. The service was absolutely horrendous. The bus girl removed my plate as I was eating my meal, and the waitress shouted across the restaurant many times throughout the night. Worst romantic Valentine's date. I'm so sorry to the owner for the disgrace that his employees are bringing to his restaurant. I will not return, nor will I recommend this restaurant.
My husband and I visited on Valentine's Day so, understandably, it was quite busy. We were greeted very warmly and offered a lovely table, however; being in the corner, we were overlooked quite a bit. Others who were seated after us, had begun on their mains before we had even received our app. Our server was very pleasant, but absent quite a bit. Let's just say we enjoyed a 'leisurely' meal and some 'time for us.' My husband and I will definitely return (on a less 'hectic' day). The food is always delicious, the staff friendly and the price point very reasonable.
Really bad service. Server didn't even bring water we had to ask and he didn't come by to offer more. He also didn't come and visit throughout the entire meal. TerribleFood was good.
My wife and I showed up for our reservation on time 8:15. Another couple shows up and states they do NOT have a reservation and they immediately get seated before us. This happens a second time and my wife and I begin to think it's because of our Asian background. I politely ask what is happening and I get a finger waved in my face and we are told to wait again. We were never rude nor confrontational with the waiting staff at any time. We leave the restaurant never having been seated and never having felt so discriminated. I really hope the owner can check the video recording and make sure this never happens again.
Three couples went out for a Saturday night dinner. The appetizers were excellent and generous portions. Entrees were well received, the veal Marsala was tasty, the pasta with lamb was sublime. The rack of lamb was juicy and tasted great. The salmon was delicious. Everyone commented at the quality and quantity of the vegetable sides. All in all a night of good food, good friends. We would happily return.
I celebrated my parents 50th anniversary at the restaurant. Frank and his staff were amazing. The food was so good and affordable.
Went there with the family. Nice place. A bit pricey but the food is absolutely great.
The food was great, however, the service was even better! I enjoyed every moment spending at the restaurant and I can definitely say I will for sure visit again! It was a very nice atmosphere, I felt as if I was home. The service was fabulous, the waitress was outgoing, but professional and made us laugh which made our night even more special. Looking forward visiting the place again with friends after the holidays!
The food was good but the service was horrible. The server seemed to want us to leave right from the start. She was rude, grabbed menus forcefully from our hands and told us we couldn't change our minds despite the fact that she hadn't even finished taking our orders.
We were chatting and she came over to ask us something. When I asked her to repeat herself, she rudely told me that I should have been paying attention and she began to walk away. I told her I still hadn't heard what she said and was told that someone else already answered the question so I didn't need to know.
The server brought the bill without us asking for it. We were celebrating two birthdays and chatting. When she brought the bill, I asked her to split it. She went into a tirade about how they don't do that and it says it on the menu. I said that was fine and that we would all take out our calculators. She came back a few minutes later and said that she would split them this time but it's against their policy. She then leaned right in to me and lectured me about how I should have asked for that when I arrived and that I had plenty of time because I was the first one there. My response was that we hadn't asked for the bill yet so her having to redo it was her own fault.
The server came out again and asked if she could clear the dessert plates as the dishwasher was leaving. We said that was fine as long as we could keep the glasses. She then reached across the table and made us pass her the plates instead of walking around and collecting them.
There were many other incidents during our dinner but the letter count is dwindling. Suffice it to say, we will not return to this restaurant. I refuse to pay for lousy service when there are plenty of restaurants in and around the city.
This is is our favourite restaurant in Woodbridge we frequent this restaurant often.
Attractive although basic decor. In a strip mall. From the minute we walked in til we left, the service was either overdone and too familiar or absent. Overly friendly service is great in a bar but not for dinning out. The appetizers were very good and enjoyed by all. However, the mains were just average in flavour and my Oslo buccaneers was tough.....with a horrible sauce.
There are other choices in Woodbridge....
