La Piazzetta is the latest restaurant to open in the Bishopric, as the redevelopment of the North end of Horsham town continues. Situated in the previously owned Merrythought Restaurant, this new independent Pizzeria offers a welcoming family feel over the large scale restaurant chains in town.
The two of us each ordered something different so as to scope the menu a little further. We tried –
The starter of Pain Bianco – Garlic bread with Mozzarella – is more than large enough to serve three people. The perfect combination of fresh garlic and moist light dough topped off with melting mozzarella cheese. With a section of starters for one or to share, you can guarantee a good start to your meal.
Moving onto the main, the Gnocchi al Forno was beautifully fresh and full of flavours. Soft gnocchi surrounded by masses of sweet herbed tomatoes and lashings of mozzarella cheese, what’s not to love? We also tried the Pizza Pollo, which had plenty of chicken, peppers, mozzarella and pesto to go around. It was one of those pizza’s that you just have to finish because of the great flavours.
Like any good meal, you need to end on a high. The Caramel and Sticky Toffee Bomb was presented as a mammoth portion of chocolate covered ice cream, and the Tiramisu had just the right amount of coffee with an added sharpness in the Tia Maria.
Horsham is in need of more places to eat other than just East Street and we certainly welcome the redevelopment of this part of town, and will look to dine there again soon. From all of us at the Horsham Blog team, we’d like to say a big thank you to La Piazzetta for inviting us to come along.
