A great time on any given night – I found it by chance last year on a friend last minute recommendation and I've been hooked ever since. If there is a party there, you'll have no other choice but to dance, not because they'll force you, but because the ambiance is SO great. Food is excellent, and so is the service. It was remodeled recently, and it looks even better. Once, they have this young couple, that they sang in English, Spanish, Italian, Sicilian, etc, without an accent in any of the languages, it was so inviting that I saw a 90 years old woman dancing. For a nice family oriented place, dont miss this one.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Traditional Italian restaurant serves homemade pastas, fresh seafood, and meat dishes using fine seasonal ingredients. Brunch is served on weekends.
Sweet Potato Soup – If you go in the daytime, it feels like you are dining in an Open Garden, because of the glass Rooftop; at night, it's romantic and the atmosphere is great.
The food is incredible! The best thing I had there so far was the sweet potato soup, mashed sweet potatoes (when in season)and the lobster tails with champagne sauce!
I've also had some private parties there with family - excellent food and service.
Chef Francesco made this past New Year's Eve memorable.
Critical review for my favorite place in the area – Often crowded. Music is sometimes too loud, but the staff will turn it down if you ask. The reason it is loud is because of the acoustics in the restaurant that allow conversations to carry clearly and easily, and the music blocks that out. Their music selection is usually relatively good and unique, though. They sometimes have a live piano player who does lounge singer type stuff, but quite well. Can be fun.
That's all I can really criticize them for :)
Best Italian food I have had in Brooklyn!!!
They deliver, too.
Incredible !!!!!! – I was visiting from Massachusetts and wanted to take my daughter to dinner. I did a search for places to dine in her neighborhood. I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the food ( unbelievable ) the atmosphere (felt like I was in Italy) and the prices ( very reasonable) The cold antipasto stole my heart and palate. My daughter is a chef in Manhattan and she was impressed as well. Her veal was outstanding . I recommend this place to anyone who loves Italian food. Oh and the cannoli OH MY GOSH the best I have ever eaten. I will go back there several times before returning to Massachusetts
Tasty – I LOVED the food here! The service left something to be desired. My friend and i went in and waited to be noticed let alone seated for a good 5 minutes, when we flagged a waiter who was no help and were seated by a bartender. We chose to sit outside, which was nice, but the outdoor furniture isnt the most comfortable. I would recommend to them better outdoor furniture. The waiter was nice, not very attentive, but overall ok. and the food was AMAZING. I would go back just for the Penne with zuccini and cherry tomoatoes was soo good, and what my friend go he loved too, i'm not sure what it was exactly some potoato pasta. but anyway great food ok service
Perfect Place! – From the moment you walk in , you will be taken back by the atomosphere, and the food is better than any Italian Restuarant I have ever been to.
I absolutely reccommend La Piazzetta to families, dates, girls or guys night out and perfect for parties. I have had several parties here and they were a hit!
The Best – Everything from the service, food, atmosphere and wine list is great. Since it is not in the trendy part it is more of a unique and traditional italian restaurant. The food was excellent. I would recommend the Gnocci, ravioli or risotto. The pastries are delicious too. Try this place you will not be disappointed.
Surprise!! – The food at La Piazetta has great flavor, subtle yet incredible taste. I love the friendly feel to the whole place it felt like cheers. From the moment you step in everyone greets you like you been there before.
The high glass ceiling brings great warmed and the lighting is something very special you won't find anywhere else.
It's also great place to drink wine as they have a good selection.
I highly recommend this restaurant for big parties as well as to romance someone.
Floyd the food guy – I've tried plenty of the neigborhood restaurants and they're OK, but this one has something different about it. You can go out to eat here on a first date to impress a girl and not go broke in the meantime or for a business lunch to close a deal, or just in jeans on any night of the week for a simple plate of risotto at the bar and still feel comfortable. Even though I had only been there once before I was made to feel as though I was a regular customer. The host made me feel right at home and even the chef came out to greet my table. I was very impressed by that! Try any one of the homemade pasta dishes, they're inexpensive and delicious.
