About La Piazzetta - Horsham

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.

The number of people in the restaurant on a Monday evening is testament to how good it is. Excellent food and service. Highly recommended, we will be back!

Delicious food, and the value was really good! The restaurant is small but was really busy when we went. The service was amazing, the waiters were really attentive and helpful.

Superb food and very reasonably priced. Service was very friendly and attentive without being too much. If you want good traditional Italian food this is the place and we will certainly be returning again very soon.

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.

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 .

Always excellent and friendly service, with delicious food. A wonderful authentic, independent resteraunt. And always busy compared to well known Italian chain Restaurants in town. They even remember if you have a special request, in the way you like a dish prepared, from a previous visit. Very impressive.

Service was prompt, atmosphere was welcoming, food was glorious and the staff were friendly. The only downside was sitting near the front door there was a draft every time someone came in or out. Will definitely go again to try the other items on the menu.

Busy restaurant on a Saturday night , popular with locals. Attentive and good natured staff gave us a very pleasant meal experience. Brilliant seafood risotto ( less risotto than paella but I'm no foodie ), average starters at a late table on a busy night. Try them out.

Some of us had the set menu and everything was really lovely. It was such good value for money ( even included a glass of Prossecco) and we'll definitely go back again. We all really enjoyed our evening Will be recommending it to anyone wanting real Italian cooking.

Very friendly staff. Typically Italian. Went for lunch with friends and we all enjoyed our meals and the wine. Spent 3 hours there and never felt we were being rushed or that we needed to leave. Would go back again.

This small Italian restaurant is situated in the center of Horsham and so suffers from a lot of competition in the town. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the service excellent, however whilst the food is enjoyable with a vast menu again on my 2nd visit my dish was only luke warm and there was nothing to make it stand out from the crowd

I have now visited La Piazetta several times and each time my visit is very enjoyable. Staff, food and atmosphere always top notch. Nice to have an independent restaurant in Horsham.

I called the day before and asked for a nice touch with dessert as it was my partner's birthday, maybe a little candle or whatever they could do. I was disappointed that it didn't happen. Muscles were very fishy tasting too

We went for lunch and had the set menu lunch. My soup was lacking in flavour and the risotto was gluggy. My sister and pork. After 1 bite could not eat any more. Tough as old boots she said. She told the waitress who said Ok. No apology or would speak to chef.. Nothing. We wont be going back again

it was nothing special in fact i couldn't finish my beef as it was hardly cooked they didn't ask how I'd like it cooked when they took the order blood flowing onto my plate is too rare for me.

Food and staff were great but the restaurant was full and VERY noisy, we were unable to hold a conversation. Maybe too many covers for the space?

Very nice and quick service, the pancetta in my pasta was a little chewy so probably wouldn't order that dish again but would definitely go back.
