We hosted our son and daughter-in-laws rehearsal dinner there recently and we were so pleased. Everything from the food to the presentation was wonderful. Our experience working with Frankie and his staff far surpassed our expectations. We would highly recommend LaPizzeria to anyone considering a private event there.
My fiance' and I have eaten at LaPizzeria about five times over the past year. We even got engaged there; but our last visit Saturday was a dissapointment! Although the service was prompt and somewhat attentive, the food was a dissapointment. Having lived in Italy a number of years, I know what good Italian food tastes like. I can even give credit to good Amercanized Italian, but the mozzarella stuffed meatball I have left much to be desire. No more than a big meatball with some mozzarella on the underside. Not good and of Pizza Hut quality. My fiance had a seafood past, but the scallops were not well cleaned and gritty. We had to send one Martini back because it just wasnt' made correctly, which the waitress later admitted. I have always loved this place, but if this is their Swan Song, then just close the doors and don't make us suffer the indignities of a poor finish.
The food and service is the best Mobile has to offer. The filet is amazing and they have wonderful gourmet pizza. La Pizzeria is a memorable place you can sit back have a glass of wine with a loved one or with a party. If you love Italian, this is your best bet. I would put it up against anything in the United States. I lived in San Fran for 4 years and the food there was really good, but this knocked the socks off of anything I had across this great country.
I have to say that i was very surprised to find such a wonderful restaurant so close to my home. It is kind of hidden and you have to look for it, but it very much worth the search.
My wife and I arrived without reservations and were still given a nice table and greeted by our wonderful waiter Kristopher immediately. He told us about the specials and ran to get our drinks. Also brought us the ice water without even being asked (I love that).
the soups came out almost as soon as we ordered them. they were followed by our entrees which were cooked to perfection. Can't wait to go back and try the pastas
Good. Read several great reviews, but just good. With wine and tip, spent short of $70 for two, and was fairly pleased with the value. The house salad with the walnutty raspberry vinegarette is a better choice than the Caesar, though they'll put anchovies on it if you want (what ever happened to anchovies on a Caesar??). The Pasta Achafalaya was good, but could have been spicier, and the tomatoes were mealy (really hard to find good maters anymore). The veal marsala was more marsala-tasting than it should have been, but was competent. Service was extremely friendly, and while the food was slow in coming, it wasn't a horrible boring wait and the wait staff made sure we had what we wanted. You'll want to get a map before coming, as it's slightly off the main streets and Google doesn't quite have the one-way streets right. Not that anyone pays attention to one-way streets here. Wouldn't come back, but not because it was awful -- more because we'd like to try something different next time. Try it -- beats the heck out of the chains. -- rg
