As always the food was outstanding. There was a private party in a separate room. That had the servers attention. This was the first time we didn’t get excellent services.

This is the best restaurant in Hillsborough and the surrounding area. Do not hesitate to try Caffe Piazza. The Chicken Vesuvius is spectacular and they also have an absolutely delicious non dairy dessert for those of us that can no longer eat dairy!

Greeted by friendly servers upon arrival. Took a little while to be served water and bread (no butter or anything to dip bread into, though), but they opened our wine bottles right away. Lots of delicious choices on the menu made it hard to choose. Appetizer was delicious and entrees arrived in a good amount of time after enjoying the appetizer. Did not feel rushed. Everyone loved their meal from the steak to the pastas all which were hot and flavorful. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere - we were the last party to leave the restaurant for the evening and again did not feel rushed by the staff.

Caffe Piazza never fails us. Our three entrees all hit the mark but this is not unusual for this fabulous local restaurant. Delicious homemade deserts capped off the dinner in fine style. If you haven't dined here yet, it's time to give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Initially the person who came to our table said hello but then indicated he was not a waiter so he could not answer our questions. We were given dinner menus. Only after 10 minutes did someone realize they made a mistake. After the order was taken and the food arrived, nobody came by to ask us if we needed anything throughout the entire meal. I looked around for someone when I wanted the check. The place was almost deserted. It was a horrible experience. I felt so disrespected.

I love their eggplant. And the waitress was very engaging. But I have a suggestion. Despite the variety of sauces between 2 apps, salads and entrees the servers didn’t replace the silverware. Ok, I get it but please NEVER put the silverware directly on the table! Now I have dirty silverware and a dirty table.

Had a nice Mother’s Day lunch at Cafe Piazza , went based on a friends recommendation, and we were all very pleased with the excellent food and service. The owner/ host was very friendly and accommodating , servers very prompt and professional, and the food was delicious . Both Moms loved it ! Can’t wait to return for a nice dinner and bottle of wine !

Go to place for Saturday night Italian. Very family oriented but good for date night as well. Specials always offer something to consider. Rarely have room for dessert but it looks great! Excellent espresso.

Everything about this restaurant is great. You get so much food for the price and you can cut the steak with a butter knife. Never disappoints.

A pleasant surprise. 1st time there. Nice ambiance . The variety and creativity of the food selections were impressive. The food was very good and substantial. The entree prices for some dishes seem high -- but because it is a BYOB, the overall the value, quantity, and quality make the overall cost very affordable.

The owner is very friendly and definitely takes pride in and has a passion for making excellent food creations and ensuring a professional, yet cozy, dining experience.

We never had a bad meal at cafe piazza and wondered aloud why we don’t come here more often. It’s a bit of a drive, but we vowed to put it on our rotation. We also wondered why the restaurant sometimes wasn’t packed. Well maybe more and more people are catching on. The restaurant was filled and we are glad we decided to make reservations. Food is terrific, it is very comfortable and the service is great.

Very enjoyable place to eat. The food was top notch and the servers all seemed very happy. This tells me that the employer appreciates his staff which trickles down to me the customer. Service was quick, food was full of flavor. Will return again for sure.

Went here with a friend for New Year's Eve, not knowing it was a "set" menu for a set price. I had never been there before and it was not specified on the website. Initially I was disappointed, but the owner and staff were so accommodating. I'm a vegetarian and they made sure the menu fit my needs. The food was amazing and I intend on going back. Love this place.

Truly a neighborhood gem where you are greated and treated like a best friend from point of entry to departure. The food is anything but standard, it’s delicious, made with care and presented with attention to detail. BYOB and great experience make this a regular spot on our short list in town. You will not be disappointed.
