We visited here last week and were really impressed. We luckily got a cancellation , but it does fill up so booking is essential.it is a lovely little restaurant in the small village of Manotick just outside Ottawa. Food was delicious. Service great. Seemed to be full of locals which speaks for itself. Highly reccomended. We thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ordered, all delicious.

The food they are serving at this restaurant is fantastic, every morsel was worth every penny! We got to enjoy the last of the lovely summer weather a couple of weeks ago on their patio, nothing like sunshine beaming down while you have a wonderful meal with great friends and great wine. We decided to share an antipasto platter amongst four of us. There was plenty to go around, a delicious assortment of cheese, cured meats, olives and roasted sweet peppers; everything was served with warm rolls and olive oil and balsamic vinegar. For our main courses we decided to try a selection of various items and pass it around, family style so everyone got a sampling. We opted for the manicotti, Veal Parm, Lamb and Gnocchi; we also requested a couple of the lobster tails as they were such a great price. Everything was exceptional, cooked to perfection, seasoned wonderfully and tasty, tasty, tasty. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

Amazing food Angry waitress

My husband and myself went to Kals for breakfast on Saturday morning and was happy with our experience till about half way through. Our breakfast order was taken quickly and came out quickly the food was amazing big plates served hot coffee was refilled this was not the problem. The problem was the waitress decided to sit down at a table in the center of the restaurant and have a very animated and angry discussion with 2 patrons. She was very upset with another person who worked there who had needed time off. At this point another waitress came by and refilled our coffee again and we ordered a juice from her all the while our waitress sat and talked while the other girl cleaned the table off and several others around us.The overall experience was good and the service didn't suffer because she had a person helping her, we will go back because the food is excellent and the other waitress was very pleasant. I have to say eat here. The food is totally worth it we can't wait to try the pizza. Which came highly recommended

A great place to take the kids for pizza; their Margherita pizza is fantastic, my kids love it for lunch. We always have a great time on their patio in the summer, the service is always great. My wife has a gluten allergy and they are very willing to accomodate. My personal favourite dish is always the gnocchi - freshly made and perfectly cooked, I like mine extra spicy and not too heavy on the sauce.

I golf on Tuesday nights with the Metcalfe women's league and our husbands t-off on the other course at the same time. Course is in great conditions and it is a relaxing way to end the day. We meet at the club house after the game and enjoy the great food and excellent service at Hickories restaurant. Nice place to eat even when not golfing - love sitting in the screened in porch enjoying the weather!

We had one of the best meals ever at La Piazza in Manotick, what a find. We frequently dine in Ottawa and this was better than most of their top Italian restaurants. The pasta was extremely tender and the fillings creative. My husband raved about the Salmon and my Veal Saltimbocca was outstanding. The wine recommendation was "spot on". The service was impeccable. It was a relaxing and wonderful dining experience.

Love this place! Its one of the few places Ill go and just order whatever the special is because I know it will be phenomenal. It can get busy on the weekends so make reservations. If you do end up waiting, which isn't very often, the owner usually will come around and give the party waiting a delicious Limoncello. It truly is a slice of heaven and a must try for Italian food lovers

I called to make a reservation for my sons 7th birthday because this is where he chose to eat and celebrate with family. His birthday this year happens to fall on a Friday and they wouldn't let me make a reservation for him, not even in the party room because it was on a Friday. Very disappointed!

we ordered from Just eat, and the food was great, did not take long for the delivery to arrive, all in all was a good experience, will definetly repeat.

the meats were juicy and hot, the vegetables fresh, and the diffrent sauces (Humus, galic sauce, spicy garlic and Avocado garlic.

definetly using just eat makes a lot of sense for us as it is quick and simple.

What a wonderful surprise! We have gone to most of the top rated Italian restaurants in Ottawa. La Piazza is up there with the best. We have a code for many restaurants - "been there - done that". La Piazza is a definite "been there - will go there again and again". Food was wonderful and the service great. The ambience is really nice, there is an amazing patio in front of the restaurant, very private and quiet, a wonderful place to eat.

Great Pizza

Of course I had pizza, margherita, and it was good, definitely above average. The bread on the basket is perfectly made, chewy inside and crusty outside. That plus the olive oil is a great hit. The kids had lasagna and pizza, we had fish, pizza and pasta and everything was good. Very friendly service and great desserts! Great bands on the weekend and the only place in Manotick open on Sunday.

I went to La Piazza with my sister. We are "foodies" and have dined in a few of the country's top restaurants. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant! The food is OUTSTANDING! The service is excellent. We added a delicious bottle of wine to go with our meal. The server selected the perfect wines to go along with the courses. At the end of our dining experience, they sent us home with a goodie bag. Some say La Piazza is expensive but it is on par with other restaurants of this caliber. La Piazza is a must for food enthusiasts.

And the owner, Frank is such a gracious host. He's always there to make sure everything is taken care of perfectly.

Different - Very good
By honeysuckle of Ottawa, Ontario (1 Review)

If you are looking for a dining experience that is different than the "usual" good restaurant in Ottawa, go to Atura. Why? In each and every dish the flavor combinations are exquisite. That's the best part. Also remarkable are the beautiful presentations, attentive service, and very flexible menu options. Like virtually all high end foodie places it is small, cozy and relatively informal. This restaurant had a great wine stock for us, we chose a robust amarone. And were treated to a complimentary Limoncello.
We will go back as we heard that they have live bands on the weekend. One in particular is a latin band that we've heard is very good.

Lovers of Italian food know authenticity when they taste it, and believe me, this stuff is real! Whether you try the Mussels and White Wine Garlic sauce, or the Tiramisu (the best I've ever eaten), you will be delighted. Small, quaint and family- owned, La Piazza is a Manotick Gem with the best patio and fantastic bands. Don't miss it!

We recently celebrated a family reunioun at La Piazza - there were 25 of us that attended and I must say that the entire event was wonderful, we were very well taken care of from the moment that we made the decision to hold our event here.
The owner made sure that everything was well executed, from the menus for our group to the food selection to the service that we received during our meal. We had a fixed menu and they were able to make an excellent substitution for one of our party that has a gluten allergy.
The room that we had was wonderful, a nice semi private dining area and we made arrangements to have everyone brought to the restaurant in their limousine service that they offer. There were a number of different components that had to be executed in a very organized manner and they delivered perfectly.

This is the place to be in Manotick now. The patio is awesome in the summertime, the food is absolutely yummy (Gnocchi and the Mussels are my favourite) and the have fantastic bands playing on the weekends. I only wish I could spend more time lounging there. The overall vibe of the place is casual and fun; there is certainly a regular crowd, I'm one of them...

Anniversary dinner

My husband proposed to me at this restaurant just over two years ago. He brought me here on Monday to celebrate our wedding anniversary, he's so sweet. It was just as I remembered it, the food is fantastic, the service is good, and the owner is very generous. As soon as he found out it was our anniversary and the story behind why we were there he gave us complimentary champagne and dessert; both were a nice touch at the end of the night.

This restaurant was our first experience in Manotick and eventhough it was busy, the quality of the food, the fine service we had on the patio was so nice. Our waiter was very helpfull with guiding us through the menu which made it a great experience. He even went out of his way to make us taste a wine on the menu to make sure we were happy. We will return to this restaurant on our next visit.

Our family was visiting friends in the Barrhaven ara and looking for a place to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We didn't want to go into Ottawa so instead someone recommended this restaurant.

It was located about 15 minutes away from our hotel but we had seen excellent reviews. We were amazed with everything. We were served by the owner, Frank and his service was just like being in Italy. We visited Italy last summer. The food was perfect and authentic.

I should mention one of us requires a gluten-free diet and he was able to go off menu to satisfy us.

Do not miss this experience if at all possible!!!
