Restaurant Addict: Piazza Italia
Even before we moved to the Pearl District I had heard several people rave about Piazza Italia. It is less than a block from my house now, so I knew I had to try it right away. This authentic little restaurant is full of activity. Most of the staff speak Italian and there is a clear love of soccer, excuse me football. We wisely made a reservation for a beautifully sunny Sunday night. The place was packed both inside, and at the outside tables. We sat inside which was nice because it was just starting to cool off. At times the place felt a little chaotic, but the food was worth it. I had the home made pappardelle pasta with creamy pesto and mushrooms and it was amazing. My husband had the special which was spaghetti and meatballs, I tasted it and it was delicious. I can't wait t go back!
