In a long short this isn’t a restaurant. It is more of a very nice large pizza place. The food isn’t bad at all but isn’t out of the world either. It’s a nice go to spot for a quick easy bite.

During these rather challenging times it is comforting to be able to dine outside or inside within a safe distance, enjoy a great meal, and have some semblance of normalcy. Staff is friendly, attentive, and welcoming, and the menu options are limitless. A go to on a Sunday night after a day at the beach.

We dined al fresco at La Piazza’s new wonderful outdoor seating area with our two kids. Not only was our food fantastic, the service delightful, but it really felt as if we were dining in Italy... even though we were in Merrick. We have long been fans of La Piazza since the day they opened years and years ago, but the new option for outdoor seating cannot be beat. 5 stars!

My family and I went to La Piazza in Merrick for dinner on Monday evening to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We had eaten here many times before the “new normal.” Our table was ready upon arrival. All three of us enjoyed our meals very much and felt safe as other diners were nowhere near us. I had chicken marsala with spaghetti, my husband had garden salad with grilled chicken and my son had grilled chicken and French fries. I took the spaghetti home and had two more meals! The busboy only came to collect our dishes at the end of our meal which we prefer, not repeatedly every time one of us finished eating as we have experienced elsewhere. Our waitress, Lee, was very pleasant and attentive and we had a most enjoyable evening!

We had a spectacular experience! The service was fast and effective. We requested an outdoor table and they had one ready for us upon arrival. We felt safe during these tricky times. All precautions were taken for us to feel comfortable. The food was delicious! Would certainly go back.

Came here on Thursday and celebrated my friends belated birthday. It was our first pick since we really love their insalata pizza. We were seated immediately and I never felt unsafe while there. Everything was cleanly and we were all spaced over 6 ft apart from other people. We also had an amazing waitress who was attentive and did not rush us. We were able to catch up and enjoy a delicious meal. Would always recommend, great food and service.

Food standard
Great Pizza
The waitress worked hard but the kitchen kept screwing up.
They brought out the appetizers and main course at the same time.
Did not ask us for drinks or dessert?
Got a bad accident Reflex after eating the Vhicken Part.

The only complaint I have is when I called to make a reservation the person told me I can only make a reservation on line but I told her I tried but on line only had times up through 5 pm and she said that means we are booked until we close
That wasn’t correct because I went back on line an hour later and was able to book a 6.15 pm reservation it

Came here with my girlfriends for dinner last night and had a pleasant experience. Our reserved table was ready upon arrival. Hostess promised to try and seat us outside, and she delivered! Suna was a great server, we gave her a generous tip for her hard work. We ordered two bottles of cabaret, Mozzarella di casa, prosciutto arugula pizza, penne vodka, and a buffalo chicken pizza. They were all delicious. Can’t wait to come back :)

My girlfriend and I love the food here, so it’s become our go-to Italian restaurant. Obviously, Covid restrictions make it much more difficult to dine in, but it seems like La Piazza has a good handle on how to make it work. We came in on the early side, so it didn’t start to pick up until we left but the service was great, they sat us at a nice table (w plenty of space - they were conscious of keeping us socially distant from other diners) and as usual, the food was awesome. Since the pandemic started, we haven’t been out to eat much but based on our experience at la piazza, we left very happy (and full!) so we’ll be back soon!

It has been about 5 years since my last visit to LaPiazza. Came last night with friends and reserved an outdoor table. Service was excellent, food was delicious, portions were very generous. Forgot how great this place is - will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful evening. LaPiazza’s “new normal” made us feel extremely comfortable. We had a party of six and we were spaced more than six feet away from other diners. Our server was very accommodating and charming and of course the food was delicious !

As always La Piazza has made sure that even during a pandemic, their customers and staff are safe. Our table was waiting for us. We sat immediately by a gloved, masked employee who was professional. Our food was served piping hot right from the kitchen again by masked and gloved servers. The atmosphere was lively and we felt safe. The food was delicious and we will definitely be returning.

First time dining since the pandemic started. We had reservations for outdoor but it started to rain. It was no problem seating us indoors with plenty of space between tables (with every other table closed due to pandemic) and all servers wearing masks. The food did not disappoint either. We had our fav, Penne ala vodka with shrimp and pizza margarita. Bottle of wine was pretty great too. It all made us feel normal again. Thank you La Piazza for another great meal and terrific service too.

My husband, two adult daughters and I enjoyed a magnificent evening at La Piazza. We appreciated the reassurance when we called 30 minutes before our reservation to inquire what protocol would be if our outdoor table got rained out. We were told that an indoor spot would be available. Fortunately, the decorative and functional outdoor umbrellas were enough protection from the momentary spritz and we were able to enjoy al fresco dining alongside pretty window boxes filled with flowers.
Appetizers of calamari and salads were fresh and delicious. The vodka and vegetarian pizzas were thin crusted and exactly what we hoped for. Service was attentive and all safety measures were taken for us to have an enjoyable meal with no worries. I was fabulously surprised with a magnificent piece of birthday cheese cake and singing servers (all in masks of course)! We can’t wait to return!
