We were very pleasantly surprised by how good this restaurant was! The staff were extremely friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent, with very generous portions. There is plenty of choice from the menu - something for everyone, I would think! We would not hesitate to visit again.

I know I have reviewed La Piazza on other occasions but having had a fabulous meal.... we both had lamb shirazi with chips and bread ..... just felt we had to share this with Trip Advisor followers! The new menu is such that you are spoilt for choice whether it is a starter or main course. In fact the starters... More

Good for a family night out. I had Bolognese and it was possibly the best I had. They don't have a specific kids menu but do all pizzas, pastas and risottos in a kids size. Friendly staff made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended

First time from long time I eat soo good. The portions is very big. Medium lamb is really medium cook! The staff work in restaurant is really professional.

Partner and I decided to take my disabled mother out for her favourite fare, Italian. Reviews looked good (suspiciously Italian names - staff??) and it was close to her home. Entrees arrived eventually and were quite ok. But the main course arrived almost an hour later and restaurant wasn't busy. Waiter explained it was taking long to cook. Partner ordered... More

My friend and I are visiting England, all the way from Australia. Tonight we decided that we would treat my friend's mother and ourselves to a lovely Italian meal somewhere in Bournemouth. Unfortunately for us, we found La Piazza, an Italian restaurant on Poole Hill. It was quite pleasant inside, with all the usual italianate flourishes, and the staff indeed... More

My starter of humus was excellent, could not fault it. It was well presented and tasty. My pizza was freshly made with quality ingredients. I will return

Living in the centre of Bournemouth, we are very spoilt for choice. However, La Piazza is definitely one of my favourites. It is very relaxing with a varied menu, the staff are always very attentive and the portions are generous and of very high quality. Slowly working our way round the menu! You can always be sure you are going... More

We managed to park in a little car park just over the road from here and walked to the restaurant. Staff were very friendly and it was a very busy, lively Saturday night. The menu had a huge amount of choice and we had starters and mains. The starters were really large and in hindsight we could have shared. The... More
