Bring your best smile and be certain to enjoy your time and your company. Make sure to say a cheery Ciao Bella to all the beautiful men and women around!
The most important rule of all! La Piazza is place where people come together as a community so be friendly and enjoy one another’s company. Great friendships await you!
Bring your appetite to the communal tables and be sure to fill up on Chef’s delicious tastes at the right prices.
Food and drink always brings people together, so let’s drink a variety of local beers together!
The entire piazza has been created from sustainable and environment friendly materials. Recycled wood from broken down pallets and doors, burlap sacks that would otherwise be pitched and environment friendly paints and stains promotes minimal waste and environment conscious design. Join the sustainability movement and do something good for the environment!
Menu items and beer options are local to our city and closely surrounding areas. Support local farmers and breweries while enjoying the tastes they have to offer.
