Family Italian Restaurant

Benvenuti a La Piazza!

Welcome to La Piazza Ristorante. In the Old Country, “la piazza” means “the town square.” It is the place where friends and family come together to share time, laughter, a meal, and more. A special atmosphere of warmth, comfort, and joy pervades the piazzas throughout Italy, and you will find that same atmosphere here at La Piazza Ristorante.

At La Piazza Ristorante, you can immerse yourself in the unique festive spirit of the Italian piazza, enjoy a delicious, genuinely Italian meal, and become a member of our Italian family… At La Piazza Ristorante, you can experience the essence of Italy without flying across the ocean.

The Restaurant

La Piazza Ristorante is located in picturesque Allentown, NJ, less than 5 minutes from Exit 7A of the New Jersey Turnpike and less than 1 minute from Exit 7 of Interstate 195. La Piazza Ristorante strives to recreate the unique atmosphere of an Italian piazza, where people gather to share conversation, laughter, and of course, great food. With its beautifully stenciled walls and rustic decor, the dining room at La Piazza Ristorante provides the perfect setting for a large family get-together or a quiet candlelit dinner for two. Please come and share this atmosphere, which is so special to us, with the people who are special to you.
