About
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

We ended up going back to LA Piazza on our last night in Ballito, because our daughter had enjoyed it so much and the food was great. Wonderful service and delicious pasta and seafood! Highly recommended for families!

We like La Piazza and they have great pizza's. The service is also very good there. The Seafood Pescatore Pizza is awesome. Only downside is the wine was a bit pricey when compared to other restaurants in the area.

After a great experience at La Piazza for a year end company lunch, our family booked to come through again a few days later. The La Piazza centre has bespoke clothing stores, a Great play area and lovely spa. We booked at the spa in...the morning and then booked for lunch. Amazing spa treatments and service at La Derma. We finished early at our treatments and went to lunch, our table was booked and confirmed with our amazing waiter Leo but the Manager made a decision to give our table away despite the waitor and us confirming... a dampner on a near perfect experience. Delicious food, courteous service and warm atmosphere...pity about the Manager on duty.More
