La Piazza Restaurant Review

: Situated in the heart of The Grove, La Piazza is adjacent to a busy, fountain-laden courtyard. Two levels of patio dining provide plenty of al fresco charm and the interior is suitably Italianesque, dressed up with white linen and candles. Fortunately, the food --- while not the best in town --- is better than it needs to be to achieve success in such an enviable location. The menu offers some good, though standard, salads like a typical caprese and Caesar. There are thin-crusted pizzas that are reason enough to show up, such as the capricciosa with marinated artichokes and Italian ham. Risotto with porcini mushrooms in a porcini broth is passable, and homemade pastas that range from agnolotti with veal and black truffle to chitarrine with lemon and salmon can be very respectable. You can also find grilled lamb, filet mignon and a bone-in dry-aged bistecca alla griglia. A fine torta della nonna makes a worthwhile finale.
