La Piazzetta’s menu maps out a journey that transports tongues through the many regions of Italy. Salads start dinner with blends of green such as the spinach leaf salad, a mix of gorgonzola cheese, walnuts, red onion, and tomatoes doused in a raspberry vinaigrette. For main dishes, chefs whip together traditional Italian favorites such as penne alla vodka and chicken marsala in a classic wine and mushroom mélange. To become chicken francese, freshly battered breasts dip into hot pans of white wine, lemon, and butter sauce. Chefs send six pan-seared breaded jumbo shrimp beneath a waterfall of pomodoro sauce before melting mozzarella atop the morsels, while meatballs parmigiana form edible snowmen beneath a snowfall of grated romano cheese. Sip house wines and linger within La Piazzetta’s recently renovated interior with dark wood chairs and warm light spilling from wall sconces to illumine arched countryside murals.
La Piazzetta Cafe
Framed in arched woodwork, scenic murals of the Italian countryside line one wall of La Piazzetta Cafe and mirrors stand guard over teal banquettes on the other. Small bouquets of vibrant-hued flowers are eternally in bloom at the center of each table, weighed down with plated Italian favorites. Shrimp, veal, chicken, meatballs, and eggplant all receive the parmigiana treatment, and pasta dishes offer more than 20 varieties, including rigatoni montonara and dried macaroni for making crafts at the table. Guests can share a specialty pie such as the buffalo-chicken pizza, or horde their own 12-inch personal pizza. Diners can feast inside where a television entertains kids, relax at a bistro table outdoors, or order catered fare for their next Golden Girls viewing party.
