  • 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.

  • Order: Gnocchi, Linguine Pescatore, Fettucine Alfredo, Lasagna, Stuffed Chicken

  • 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.

  • Order: Canelloni, Gnocchi, Tiramisu

  • 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.

  • Order: Canelloni, Linguine Pescatore, Filet Mignon, Zuchini sticks, Tiramisu, lemon cake

  • 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.

  • Order: Calamari, Smelts, Linguine Pescatore, Grilled Salmon, Tiramisu.

  • 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.

  • Order: Canelloni, Steak Gorgonzola, Filet of Sole, Calamari, Mussels, Tiramisu, Italian Lemon Cake.

  • 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

  • Order: Veal Saltimbocca, Calamari, Caprese Salad, Stuffed Chicken.

  • 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!

  • Order: Pizza with chicken, Caesar Salad, Mista Salad.

  • 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.

  • Order: Filet of Sole, Filet Mignon with Rapini, Mussels, Calamari, Carpaccio.

  • 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.

  • Order: Veal Marsala, Steak Gorgonzola, Gnocchi with rose sauce, Linguine Pescatore

  • 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.

  • Order: Special Linguine with surf clams and classic pizza
