    NOT true italia...

    NOT true italian. Very disapointed. Food was bad, no taste, very pricey and atmosphere dark inside. Young girl server was fine, the cook did not do justice to Italian food, too much sauce on plated items which means a cover up. Veal was grey and hard. Pasta dishes no taste. Establishement bathrooms dirty floor, baseboards, smell. I would have preferred the Owner to have done his job instead of a young assistant manager when we complained about the food. Actually, should have been on the house, the meal. If you want good food in Manotick, I highly recommend the Black Dog on Main or good Italian on Preston street in Ottawa. For travellers, you can verify under City of Ottawa, under Inspections, the restaurants reports. I give a 0 but this star system does not give it. So, 1 star.

    Went for business, went back for great food

    I have traveled around the world more than once in my life time, and La Piazza is on my top 3 Italian Restaurants. There is a science to cooking pasta right, you cant just throw everything in a pan and cook it. You can tell they take their time with each dish, and it just tastes magnificent. I originally went for a business meeting, and some how the meeting started to revolve around the food. Great tasting Italian food Period.

    Delicious

    My husband and I went here for a nice dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the amazing staff and awesome food. The staff is extremely kind and attentive. We didn't have a single issue. I got the gnocchi and seriously shoved it into my mouth. It was so delicious. My husband got the the canelloni and was very happy with it. Overall an amazing dinner. Make reservations and enjoy some wonderful Italian food.

    Just Fantastic

    Food was amazing! All the employees and especially the waitress, Kim, was awesome. Food was delicious. I was looking for some good Italian food, the kind grandma used to make, and this was it. After dinner they bring around a killer dessert menu and you can't say no. Great experience with very reasonable prices.

    Great Birthday Celebration

    I took my husband here for his birthday and once again this place delivered some of the best Italian cusine in Ottawa. I'm not organzied enough to phone in a reservation, which at this busy hot spot isn't a good idea. We were assured by the Owner, Frank, that he'd get us a table right away. To my surprise he did. We really enjoy this place. The restaurant has that "hidden gem" kind of feel to it, good service, large delicious portions and usually great fast service. Frank always makes everyone feel like a special guest. He seems to genuinely care about not just delivering great food but delivering a great dining experience to every guest. This is a "go to" favourite, we can't stay away.

    Best Italian in Manotick

    There's a reason La Piazza is the go-to place for special occasions (and even many not-so-special-I-just-want-a-great-meal occasions) in Manotick. The food is truly wonderful (do try the Canelloni--it's beyond belief rich, sinful and just plain fabulous). I have never had anything other than a great meal here and highly recommend it to any of you all who haven't yet had the pleasure of dining here. It's not too pricey, and you absolutely get your money's worth. You'll be back, again and again.

    Love La Piazza

    We all have our special local places we like to frequent. And when we travel, we like to look for the kinds of places that locals patronize. But it isn't alwasy easy. Well, if you are in Manotick, I'll let you in on a secret: locals LOVE La Piazza. That's because the food is so phenomenal. It's known for its pastas, but everything else on the menu is equally delicious. They use local produce and fresh ingredients. When the weather is nice, the patio is a great place to sit, but the inside is nice, too. This is a great little place; you won't find it in the tourist guides and I doubt a hotel concierge would know it. But I guarantee you, this place won't disappoint

    Lovely Food

    My friend and I came here for lunch last week, it was fairly quiet which was nice. We shared their pizza and each had a salad, I had the Mista Salad and She had the Caesar. Everything was totally delicious, the pizza was clearly hand made, the dough, very fresh - Toppings, Very fresh. Prices were really reasonable for lunch. Our bill was less than 60.00 with a glass of wine!

    Always good!

    We keep coming back to this Italian restaurant because the food is just that good. If you're looking for the type of italian that's traditional and delicious then this is the place to go. The chef has been a staple in the Ottawa area for years and he knows what he's doing. It's always consistent, always good and we always have a great time.

    The chef is amazing

    We visited this lovely restaurant on the weekend, we all had the most delicious meals. The pasta was fantastic, the steak cooked meticulously and the veal marsala was to die for. This is a great local restaurant well worth the money for both portion size and taste factor.

    Food is fantastic

    We had a wonderful meal at this quaint Italian restaurant the other day. I ordered the special; Linguine with Surf clams and my husband had the classic Pizza. Both items were equally delicious, the pizza was wonderful, rustic and full of fresh tomato sauce with the perfect amount of cheese. My Linguine was perfectly cooked, there was a good amount of clams and the sauce was not too garlicky, just perfect. We'll go back and try their dinner menu next time.

    Great event

    My wife and I decided to go to La Piazza for her birthday dinner and wow what an amazing time we had, the food was fantastic, the wine selection was great, and the service was the best in the city. The owner, Frank, went out of his way for us. Surprised us with a Limoncello upon our arrival and made sure he wished my wife a happy birthday. We had the Lobster Ravioli, and rack of lamb with roasted vegetables. We shared the Lemon Cake with Blueberry sauce for dessert which was delicious. Highly Reccomend this place with it's homey atmosphere and great service.

    Really Enjoyable Evening

    We recently attended a winemakers dinner at La Piazza Courtyard. The evening was hosted by David Mirassou of Mirassou Vineyards and was truly an enjoyable experience. We were treated to wonderful, traditional Italian cuisine while Mr. Mirassou spoke about his vineyard and the wine pairing choices (all were excellent). It was a lovely evening and well worth the $60.00 that we spent on the ticket for a four course meal and wine. The portions were very large and the wine was abundant, we're looking forward to the next event like this.

    Lovely evening

    One of the best restaurants in Manotick, the owner and managers go out on their way to make sure everyone is happy. I've had dinner here at least a dozen times this summer and not one meal was anything but great. I recommend their daily specials, the Chicken with Lobster I had was the truly perfection on a plate! The outdoor seating is spacious (a rare thing anywhere) and they are in the process of expanding their indoor dining area. Every server I've had is extremely knowledgable and friendly, the cost is very reasonable and most importantly the food is amazing! I strongly recommend this place!

    Amazing Italian

    My boyfriend brought me to this restaurant on the weekend with our best friends. Totally had the best meal ever... We started with the carpacicio, which was delicious, we also had the mussels and Calamari, equally yummy. Main courses were exceptional, both my boyfriend and I had the special, veal ravioli, delicious. Our friends had the pasta trio dishes which they are still raving about.

    Very accomodating

    This place is worth a visit. The ambiance is lovely, the service is great, the wine list excellent and the food terrific. The menu is not overly long but there were some terrific specials in addition. Our party chose a number of different dishes, many to share (without any complaint from the staff). The bread they brought our table (with 2 refills as it was so good) with olive oil and balsamic was freshly baked. All our dishes were very good and no one had complaints. The bill was quite reasonable and all were satisfied. Definitely worth the time to visit. I wouldn't hesitate to go again. The complimentary Limoncello was a nice touch as well, thanks to the delightful owner, Frank.

    Over the top good food.

    Wow, what a wonderful surprise and fun experience. I hosted a group of 12 people for a business lunch - location picked by one of the group who had been here a few times before. We all ordered and shared tastes - everything was fantastic! Lamb, salmon, Lobster ravioli, soups, salads and a variety of deserts. I can't wait to go back with my family

    Fantastic restaurant.

    fantastic meal in a gorgeous restaurant with impeccable service. Even though they are absolutely packed with patrons you never feel rushed. The pasta dishes were as good as the ones we had in Rome. The service was friendly but professional. The wine list was well rounded with multiple price points. I can't wait to go back. Highly recomended !!! b

    Can't wait to go back.

    The food and service were amazing! Very quaint Italian restaurant! It was by far the best dinner during our stay. Priced were very reasonable. Our waiter was extraordinary. Every time he walked past our table, he made eye contact to say "is everything ok? Do you need anything?" They really get it -- the "customer experience" is key. For example, we were at the bar and the waiter was pouring a drink. I said to my husband "I wonder what that is?" The next thing I know the waiter had put (2) glasses in front of us to sample. Amazing! I recommend the La Piazza Fettucine with pesto chicken. Outstanding and the best I've ever had. We will definetely be back again. Can't wait!

    Food is very good!

    Thanks to reviews on Restaurantica, we tried La Piazza this weekend and were not disappointed. We arrived on a Friday night without reservations, but sat at the bar while a table became available. The martinis were delicious!! We waited approximately 30 minutes, but once we sat at our table, it was a wonderful experience. Great service and great food! The lasagna is the best I have ever had. They give you a large helping, so sharing would be possible! We can't wait to return. It is our new favorite Manotick restaurant. Go with a healthy appetite Well worth it!!
