The restaurants at Brightleaf Square are undergoing a lot of change this fall! Piazza Italia has closed and been replaced by Triangle Seafood. (Chamas Churrascaria and Fishmonger's have also closed). There are several Italian restaurants in the area and not much seafood, so perhaps the...More

Have eaten lunch here a few times and it never disappoints. I especially like being able to customize pasta dishes with a choice of pasta, sauce, and protein or veggies. Atmosphere is very relaxing

We really enjoyed our experience. The atmosphere was neat and the staff was friendly. I had the shrimp linguine and everything tasted very fresh. Position sizes were perfect. The only negative was the wine selection. They didn't sell by the bottle. We will definitely go...More

Trip Advisor needs a Good category between Average and Very Good for this place. The pasta, made on the premises, is on display in the back. We had good luck with that and the seafood. The wines on the list aren't necessarily available. The staff,...More
