Popped in for a late lunch/early supper. Our family ordered pizzas and lasagne. The food was absolutely delicious and service was great. The kiddies play area is also perfect to keep the little ones busy.

Caution !! Please do check your kids pastas thoroughly before they consume it. We had a horrendous experience at this restaurant last night, which could have had hazardous consequences. Apart from the soggy, cold, chewy and overcooked calamari we had received, to the grilled pork...More

La Piazza Restaurant, one of Ballito's newest arrivals on the food scene, is a quality Italian Cafe Restaurant that has it all. Owned and run by veri Italiani (true Italians), Marco Bortolussi and Catia and Daniele Marinelli La Piazza, located at the The Well in Ballito, exudes that authentic European ambience serving scrumptious authentic Italian food from breakfast through lunch to dinner. The decor is clean, chic, contemporary and uncluttered with a touch of quirkiness conducive to laid-back dining. Immense hospitality is second nature to young host and restaurant owner, Marco, whose Northern Italian origins influence his relaxed approach to welcoming and treating guests like family. No novice to the food game, Marco has been lovingly making Italian food since the tender age of twelve assisting the fifteen-year family-run business. The food is fresh tasting, sense-pleasing and crammed with scrumptious, well-sought ingredients. Both the breakfast and lunch / dinner menus include a wide variety of delicious options and there's an excellent selection of soft drinks, wine, cocktails and other beverages. In true Italian style, La Piazza is a family friendly restaurant where children are most welcome and encouraged. With an in-store Pizza / Doh play section for the little ones as well a Playstation section and outdoor Jungle Gym, there's more than enough to keep them busy. Visit us and see for yourself. We invite you to La Piazza to taste and experience Italy through food and atmosphere, here on the North Coast of KZN.
