What better way to soothe the soul than to enjoy a big, delicious plate of lasagna, just like nonna might make. At La Piazzetta in Horsham town centre, you can make those food fantasies come true, and at prices that’ll have you jumping for joy. Whatever the occasion, this restaurant will provide the feeling of a second home or a comfortable living room, one that happens to have pretty amazing food, too. There’s pasta like linguine con le vongole (linguine with fresh clams, chilli and tomato sauce) and penne verdi (homemade basil pesto with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, cream and parmesan), pizza like classic salami with cheese, and mains like filetto di salmone (salmon fillet with pea puree). Oh, and the set menu that’s available between Monday and Thursday is also a dream, with two courses for £13.50 or three courses for £15.50. With such value, book for an authentic taste of the bel paese at Horsham’s La Piazzetta on Bishopric.
A superb meal and everything was very well cooked ... the service was excellent and very attentive.. it was our first visit and would definitely recommend this restaurant
Our table was ready, service was unfailingly good and the food was delicious. We noticed that other diners were well cared for and special requests were carried out with smiling efficiency. A very pleasant lunch stop!
We always enjoy visiting La Piazzetta. It’s family friendly and the staff are very welcoming and great with the kids. Food is authentic Italian style, lovely risotto and pizzas as well as meat and veg options. Highly recommend.
Very impressed with this restaurant. All four of us enjoyed our food and the staff were very attentive even though it was very busy evening.
Friendly staff, good lunchtime deal value (2 courses £8.95 + 10% SC, 3 courses £10.95 + 10% SC). No pressure at all to 'eat and go'! Some dishes very good indeed, others a bit disappointing. Portions good to over large. Soup excellent, whitebait very good indeed if slightly over-breaded. Aubergine starter excellent, chicken main course and risotto slightly overcooked. One diner found their main course too salty. Desserts were limited to 3 choices, quite large portions after a large main course. As with nearly all Italian restaurants, the Peroni was way over-priced and made wine a cheaper alternative without being cheap either. However, overall, we all enjoyed our visit and would go again.
I've been to this restaurant on several occasions before and had always been impressed with the service and standard of food. On this occasion, although the visit was ok, I think the atmosphere was not as welcoming and the food not as good as before. I felt some elements of the meal were not freshly cooked eg the vegetables were tired and limp. I think the food was not well presented on the plate. The king prawn starter was luke warm and does not need a mountain of rocket to fill the plate. I think it is a good restaurant for pasta and pizza as the plates that were being served looked fine. I would think twice before going again for a special occasion.
La Piazzetta is a small, pleasantly furnished restaurant. It’s staff are friendly and polite, they do not rush one to decide on food and drink but nor do they neglect to notice when one is ready to decide! The menu is varied and so far, after three or four visits, the food has been excellent on each occasion, and it is very fairly priced.
We booked for my wife’s birthday last night after reading all the great reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately there were to large parties on either side of the restaurant and one of them caused so much noise shouting and laughing making it hard to have a conversation and relax. The service was impersonal and so rushed that we had finished 2 courses in under 45 minutes. The set menu was increased to £20.00 for 2 courses on a so called Easter menu. The waitress tried hard to promote us buying a bottle of red wine which obviously was also inflated to £23 for Easter when all the other wines were around £18. Maybe they should have checked their calendar as Easter didn’t start until the next day. The food was very average and I had to hunt for the chicken it had so much sauce on it, and came which chips thrown on the plate which resulted in a plate of beige food. The waitor almost threw the plates on to our table with zero finesse. He also threw the cutlery too. The lights were very bright and they were eventually dimmed down when we almost were leaving, some background music would have been nice although you wouldn’t had been able to hear it over the inconsiderate party that behaved like teenagers in a burger bar, they need to grow up. We were so looking forward to dining here but it was awful. In hindsight we should have gone to the Olive branch across the road as their food and service is amazing. We thought we would return and try a pizza for lunch one day but it’s unlikely now. Oh and also I did state when booking online it was my wife’s birthday and on our visit they made no reference to it at all, I free small glass of Prosecco wouldn’t have gone a miss. Very disappointed to spend over £60 on a rubbish experience
Service was good when we arrived but the staff were more interested in the people sitting outside . It took three attempts to get drinks and asked twice for desert menu which took over twenty minutes to get . The food was good I had pizza which was lovely. I would good back just hope the service is better next time .
This little Italian restaurant in Horsham is a gem! The food is freshly cooked to order and delicious, the wine we had to accompany our meal was also very nice. Couple this with very friendly and helpful staff, a lovely atmosphere and reasonable prices and the place is a definite favourite!
