    This was a second visit in one week first one great. So rebooked for the second visit as it was a birthday celebration only to find booking agreed by you was not noted by them so no table ready for us the as we were 5 the given a table for 4 with me stuck on the end in the main walk walk way for dinners and service staff to fill table orders. Made it a big let down. The only thing going for this visit was the standard of the meal was very good.

    I was passing through town and thought that I would try this place. The ambiance was pleasant and comfort. The staff was friendly. The menu choices were sufficient, even as a vegetarian, I was pleased with the options. I chose the gluten free pizza and it was quite nice. Paired with a lovely glass of wine and then a tasty dessert, I was content.

    Our first visit to this independent Italian. So much nicer than the generic ones. My requests (high chair, candles) were waiting for us. Staff were so friendly and food had an unusually authentic quality. We were there at closing time but felt no pressure to hurry. It was spacious too. The kids menu was obviously tasty too as my two year old granddaughter ate the lot! Have planned to return with a friend already. It is worth travelling a few miles for.

    We booked this restaurant at the last minute and had never been here before. The restaurant is in a good location off the square in the town centre and even though we live about 8 miles away it was very much worth the drive. Our first course ( brushetta) was not on the menu and was prepared without quibble at our request. Although it wasn't the best I had ever tasted it was very good and obviously prepared as an extra. We then came to the main courses and I plumped for the seafood dish with spaghetti. The flavours were quite brilliant and the volume was just about right. My wife had the pesto chicken which appeared to be equally as good. I had the Lemonchello pudding and, although expensive for what it was was extremely good and very powerful on the flavours. Overall a VERY pleasant experience. We will be back.

    Nice food but service was lacking. No one asked us if we enjoyed our food and we had to keep asking for more drinks. The staff looking after the table should take ownership and make sure all guests are looked after from arrival to leaving. No one was offered coffee at the end and the bill just put on the table.

    The atmosphere in La Piazzetta is lively and noisy - so not to be recommended for a quiet meal. The Italian menu is good and the food is delicious but service can be slow at busy times. I would advise groups of 3 do not to sit near the clock or near the entrance door unless you don't mind constant draughts and interruptions.

    Friday night Tx2 in November, booked 2 weeks in advance requesting table near window. Was not given table near window but offered another. This table was 2 inches away - YES, a mere 2 INCHES away from another table for four replete with 4 complete strangers who were even more aghast than ourselves at their close proximity as we took our seats. This was replicated throughout the restaurant and shows so very obviously that greed is what is driving the owner. By cramming in so many tables, practically on top of one another, in front of the door, along the whole length of the restaurant shows a distinct lack of customer focus and I lost count of the number of times my elbow or chair was knocked/bumped into. The owner is putting his own interests first at the expense of customer satisfaction. The meal, starter mussels to were overcooked but the sauce accompaniment was nice. The Fiorentina pizza was good and the salmon pasta whilst tasty, was portion-small. Service was excellent and attentive but due to overcrowding problems, I will not return.

    Menu was a bit dull and food was poor. Strange as the staff were Italian and it had a professional looking kitchen. Service was friendly and fast. enough, slightly erratic, the staff looked very busy despite restaurant being fairly empty due perhaps to it being Sunday evening.

    The service initially was excellent. The food was and has always been amazing, been there a few times. However once they cleared our main meals we were left about 40 mins before they offered a dessert menu which by then we didn't want anything. We has tried to get their attention earlier. We were sat near the door and did find that the staff didn't always come up to that end a lot hence probably why were missed. But on the whole it was a lovely evening, if sometimes a little hard to hear each other speak.
